Embodiment in German: Animal and Plant Expressions
Shelley Ching-yu Hsieh

This study examines the embodiment in German plant and animal expressions. The theoretical background is Halupka & Prcic’s (1998) classifications and Halupka-Resetar & Radic’s (2003) approach “People as animals”. Our research goals are to extend Halupka-Resetar & Radic’s (2003) approach and prove with ample German examples that both animals and plants are personified and the embodiment in ...

Simple and fast fabrication of polymer template-Ru composite as a catalyst for hydrogen generation from alkaline NaBH4 solution
Chuh-Yung Chen

Introduction

Most of the oil daily extracted is consumed in transportation (approximately 66.6% in America) [1]. In these environment therefore, car emissions represents the main pollution source. Hydrogen cars, by eliminating CO2 emissions, could drastically reduce in short times pollution, especially in our living areas. The main obstacle, hindering the ...

Self-Animating Images: Illusory Motion Using Repeated Asymmetric Patterns
Tong-Yee Lee

Our visual system is much more complicated than a state-of-the-art camera. “I know it when I see it” may not always be correct, because sometimes our visual system misleads us. Illusory motion is a very interesting phenomenon characterized by apparent motion in a still image. For example, Kitaoka [1] demonstrated a remarkable illusion art called “Rotating snakes”. This example (Figure 1) shows a ...

A comprehensive study of two interactive parallel premixed methane flames on lean combustion
Yei-Chin Chao

Abstract

This study aims to numerically and experimentally investigate interactive parallel lean premixed methane flames issued from twin rectangular slot burners with variable jet spacing. The flowfield and combustion chemical reactions are predicted by detailed numerical simulation with Skeletal and GRI-v3.0 mechanisms and validated by experimental particle image velocimetry (PIV) and ...
