Is There Variability in Scoring of Student Surgical OSCE Performance Based on Examiner Experience and Expertise?
Contributors: Claire L. Donohoe
... Scripted videos of simulated student performance in an OSCE at two standards (clear pass and borderline) were prospectively awarded a global score based on two different rating scales by a range of clinical assessors. Results were analysed by examiner experience and content expertise.
Improve the interfacial adhesion, corrosion resistance and combustion properties of aluminum powder by modification of nickel and dopamine
Contributors: Li Liang, Xiaode Guo, Xin Liao, Zhipeng Chang
... To improve the interface incompatibility, poor corrosion resistance, and limited combustion efficiency of aluminum powder for propellant applications. The surface of the naked aluminum was coated with a layer of dense nickel of about 100 nm by replacement method. A polydopamine film was then deposited by self-polymerization. The double-layer structure and chemical composition were investigated. The polydopamine content of composite particles was 2.3% by thermal analysis. And its heat release around 1050 C reached 4137 J g-1, which was much higher than that of aluminum of 1644 J g-1. The surface energies was used to calculate the theoretical adhesion work of aluminum and composite particles to propellant binder. The adhesion work after modification was increased from 62.33 mN m-1 to 74.89 mN m-1. No matter in the weak acid/alkaline or neutral environment, the composite particles exhibited excellent stability at 50 C. In addition, the combustion test revealed that the composite particles had higher combustion efficiency, smaller condensed phase product size, and stronger ignition ability. All the conclusions indicate after modification by nickel and dopamine, the comprehensive performance of aluminum is improved, and it may be used as an energy component in propellants or other energetic fields.

... Contains data and software from the publication: "Presynaptic Mitochondria Volumes and Complexity of Subsynaptic Distribution Increase During Development at a High-fidelity Synapse" currently under review. The preprint to this data set has been published on bioRxiv (https://doi.org/10.1101/689653). In this study, we created a helper-dependent adenoviral vector (HdAd) to co-express cytoplasmic EGFP and a genetically encoded peroxidase marker (mito-APEX2) at the calyx of Held, an excellent model for deciphering regulatory mechanisms of presynaptic function. ABSTRACT: The calyx of Held, a large glutamatergic presynaptic terminal in the auditory brainstem undergoes developmental changes to support the high action-potential firing rates required for auditory information encoding. In addition, calyx terminals are morphologically diverse which impacts vesicle release properties and synaptic plasticity. Mitochondria influence synaptic plasticity through calcium buffering and are crucial for providing the energy required for synaptic transmission. Therefore, it has been postulated that mitochondrial levels increase during development and contribute to the morphological-functional diversity in the mature calyx. However, the developmental profile of mitochondrial volumes and subsynaptic distribution at the calyx of Held remains unclear. To provide insight on this, we developed a helper-dependent adenoviral vector (HdAd) that expresses the genetically encoded peroxidase marker for mitochondria, mito-APEX, at the mouse calyx of Held. We developed protocols to detect labeled mitochondria for use serial block face SEM (SBF-SEM) to carry out semi-automated segmentation of mitochondria, high-throughput whole terminal reconstruction and presynaptic ultrastructure in mice of either sex. Subsequently, we measured mitochondrial volumes and subsynaptic distributions at the immature postnatal day 7 (P7) and the mature (P21) calyx. We found an increase of mitochondria volumes in terminals and axons from P7 to P21 but did not observe differences between stalk and swelling subcompartments in the mature calyx. Based on these findings, we propose that mitochondrial volumes developmentally increase to support high firing rates but have limited contribution to morphological-functional diversity at the calyx. Data are sorted by the figures they appear in. Media (movies and 3D models) and custom-written software are located in separate folders.

... We share the data used in publishing the article "Numerical convergence of finite difference approximations for state based peridynamic fracture models", see https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cma.2019.03.024. The data set comprises of raw data produced by computational code, post-processed files, and python script files. We consider finite difference approximation of a nonlinear state-based peridynamic model. We run simulation for two problems. In the first problem, we have a square domain with verticle pre-crack originating from the middle of the bottom edge. We apply a constant velocity boundary condition along the horizontal axis on the bottom layer. In response to the boundary conditions, the crack propagates vertically. The data correspond to three different horizons, 2mm, 4mm, and 8mm. For each horizon, we have three results, each corresponding to mesh size horizon/2, horizon/4, and horizon/8. From the approximate displacement fields, we compute the rate of convergence with respect to mesh size, for each fixed horizon. These are post-processed data and can be found in "postprocessing" folder of Example 1. In the second problem, we consider a rectangle domain which is supported at two regions (left and right) near the bottom edge. On the portion of the top edge, we apply a monotonically increasing in time force in the downward direction. We run simulation when the sample has just one vertical pre-crack originating from the middle of the bottom edge and when the sample has two vertical pre-cracks symmetrically located and originating from the bottom edge. We plot the damage at multiple times and show that the crack propagates upwards in response to applied load. All computations are carried out using an in-house developed code. In this data set, we have not shared the computational code. However, we plan on making the code public in the future. If you are interested in our code and if you have some collaborative ideas please feel free to get in touch.
