Realization of cavitation fields based on the acoustic resonance modes in an immersion-type sonochemical reactor
Yi-Chun Wang

Sonochemical effects of high intensity ultrasound come mainly from acoustic cavitation. Cavitation bubble collapse in liquid is so violent that very high local pressure and temperature, combined with extraordinarily cooling, provide a unique environment for driving chemical reactions under extreme conditions. In a traditional immersion-type sonochemical reactor, ultrasound is generated by a …

Arsenic levels in drinking water and mortality of liver cancer in Taiwan
How-Ran Guo

The carcinogenic effect of arsenic has been documented for more than a century,[1] and the World Health Organization (WHO) proposed a quality guideline of 0.01 mg/L for inorganic arsenic in drinking water in 1993. Whereas a positive dose-response relationship between arsenic levels and mortality of liver cancer in men (but not in women) was reported in Taiwan originally,[3]

The Estimation of Battery State of Health using Probabilistic Neural Network
Tsorng-Juu Liang

In this study, a probabilistic neural network (PNN) is used to estimate the state of health (SOH) of Li-ion batteries. The accurate prediction of SOH can help avoid inconveniences or fatal accidents from the sudden malfunction of the battery. A total of 110 pieces of Li-Co batteries are used. Constant current/voltage recharging and constant current discharging are performed for the life-cycle test …
