[1702.04807] Synthesis and Hydrogen Sorption Characteristics of Mechanically Alloyed...
Title: Synthesis and Hydrogen Sorption Characteristics of Mechanically Alloyed Mg(NixMn1-x)2 Intermetallics (Submitted on 15 Feb 2017) Abstract: New ternary Mg-Ni-Mn intermetallics have been successfully synthesized by High Energy Ball Milling (HEBM) and have been studied as possible materials for efficient hydrogen storage applications. The microstructures of the as-cast and milled alloys were characterized by means of X-ray Powder Diffraction (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) both prior and after the hydrogenation process, while the hydrogen storage characteristics (P-c-T) and the kinetics were measured by using a commercial and automatically controlled Sievert-type apparatus. The hydrogenation and dehydrogenation measurements were performed at four different temperatures 150-200-250-300oC and the results showed that the kinetics for both the hydrogenation and…
Biased tracers of two fluids in the Lagrangian picture
The International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) was founded in 1978 and was the first institution in Italy to promote post-graduate courses leading to a Doctor Philosophiae (or PhD) degree. A centre of excellence among Italian and international universities, the school has around 65 teachers, 100 post docs and 245 PhD students, and is located in Trieste, in a campus of more than 10 hectares with wonderful views over the Gulf of Trieste SISSA hosts a very high-ranking, large and multidisciplinary scientific research output. The scientific papers produced by its researchers are published in high impact factor, well-known international journals, and in many cases in the world's most prestigious scientific journals such as Nature and Science…

University of Oklahoma forfeits its ranking on the U.S. News list after acknowledging inflated data
May 24 at 2:02 PM The University of Oklahoma forfeited its ranking on influential U.S. News & World Report lists of best schools after informing the media company that the university had reported inflated data for many years The numbers — the average rate of alumni giving to the university — had not been reported correctly since 1999, according to U.S. News. The revelation led U.S. News to list the school as “unranked” because the inflated data had bumped Oklahoma higher in the rankings It was the latest challenge for a school immersed in turmoil in recent months. After the departure of its longtime president, David L. Boren, the state flagship school faced a series of…
