Eine Methodik zur Reduktion der technikbedingten by Matthias Müller

By Matthias Müller

Die Qualität der Notfallversorgung im Rettungsdienst ist durch den demografischen Wandel und einen zunehmenden Mangel an erfahrenen Notärzten gefährdet. Telematische Rettungsassistenzsysteme (TRAS) können hier zur Verbesserung der Versorgung vor Ort beitragen. Sie verbinden mithilfe der Telekommunikation einen zentral vorgehaltenen erfahrenen Telenotarzt mit dem Rettungsteam an der Einsatzstelle. Eine Online-Übertragung von Sprachdaten, Vitalparametern, Patientendokumentation, (bewegten) Bildern u. a. ermöglicht dem Telenotarzt eine realistische Einschätzung der Notfallsituation und eine gezielte logistische und medizinische Unterstützung des groups vor Ort. Hierbei können Fehlfunktionen im TRAS allerdings schwerwiegende Folgen für den Patienten haben. Derzeit gibt es noch keine Methodik, um diese technikbedingten Produktrisiken von TRAS zu reduzieren.

Gegenstand der Arbeit ist die Entwicklung und Erprobung einer Methodik zur Reduktion dieser Risiken. Aufbauend auf einer Untersuchung der Teilsysteme eines TRAS und ihrer Wechselwirkungen werden die technikbedingten Produktrisiken identifiziert, bewertet, priorisiert und schließlich reduziert. Der Nachweis der Anwendbarkeit der Methodik wurde durch eine Erprobung innerhalb des BMWi-geförderten Forschungsprojekts Med-on-@ix erbracht. In naher Zukunft dürften zuverlässige TRAS ein wichtiger Baustein in der kontinuierlichen Verbesserung und Sicherstellung der präklinischen Notfallversorgung in Deutschland sein.

Geothermal Heat Pump and Heat Engine Systems: Theory And by Andrew D. Chiasson

By Andrew D. Chiasson

A new angle to the research of geothermal strength systems

This publication takes a distinct, holistic method of the interdisciplinary learn of geothermal strength structures, combining low, medium, and hot temperature purposes right into a logical order. The emphasis is at the idea that all geothermal tasks comprise universal parts of a "thermal power reservoir" that needs to be effectively designed and managed.

The ebook is equipped into 4 sections that study geothermal platforms: strength usage from source and placement characterization; power harnessing; power conversion (heat pumps, direct makes use of, and warmth engines); and effort distribution and uses.

Examples are supplied to focus on primary strategies, as well as extra complicated procedure layout and simulation.

Key features:

  • Companion web site containing software program instruments for software of basic ideas and suggestions to real-world problems.
  • Balance of thought, primary rules, and sensible application.
  • Interdisciplinary remedy of the topic matter.

Geothermal warmth Pump & warmth Engine platforms: idea and perform is a different textbook for power Engineering and Mechanical Engineering scholars in addition to working towards engineers who're concerned with low-enthalpy geothermal power systems.

Illumination and Decoration of Flat Surfaces by Bob Cameron

By Bob Cameron

It has to be liked that no construction floor is completely flat and that the easiest that may be anticipated is the looks of flatness. regrettably, this visual appeal can simply be destroyed by means of the influence of glancing mild, even if average or man made. Illumination and ornament of Flat Surfaces exhibits the impact of alternative gentle resources on quite a few lining fabrics and paints in order that top effects will be achieved.
Different different types of construction surfaces are investigated, together with set plaster, fibrous plaster, hardboard and gypsum board with gloss and semi-gloss paint utilized. This full-colour variation additionally discusses new construction fabrics similar to cement sheet, polystyrene and diverse composite panels, in addition to new construction practices, low embodied power fabrics and better power potency of buildings.
Illumination and ornament of Flat Surfaces is a must have for individuals interested in the development undefined, either advertisement and residential.
