... We were interested in predicting tree properties, particularly size, from the sound made by a feller-buncher hotsaw during felling. Included are 279 3-second clips of felling sounds, along with stem size (DBH) information. Cut duration was found to predict stem size moderately well (standard error of prediction = 4.6 cm), but not well enough to be useful in measuring properties of individual stems. Could be useful for tract-level, or per-hectare predictions.

... We examined various parameters of platelet adhesion to the vascular walls in mice in both in the arterioles and venules in the presence of a peptide antagonist of the F11 Receptor (peptide 4D), utilizing the intravital microscopy system. To induce an inflammatory phenotype of the vascular endothelium, mice were injected intraperitoneally with both murine recombinant TNF-alpha and murine recombinant IFN-gamma prior to the initiation of the measurement of platelet adhesion. The F11R peptide 4D was injected to the peptide-treated group of animals in 3 consecutive applications. The control, vehicle- treated animal group received injections of equal volumes of saline at each time point. At the time of measurements conducted to assess platelet adhesion to the vasculature, mice were anesthetized and injected with the platelet-specific fluorescent anti-GPIbβ antibody. Video imaging was carried out at the magnification of 200x for 40 s with an exposure time of 200 ms in at least three venules and at least three arterioles in each mouse. The analysis of platelets tethering to the endothelium cells in the recorded movies was performed with the use of TrackMate plugin that is implemented in FIJI software. Three parameters, each characterizing platelet interactions with the vascular wall, were calculated: 1. the time of interaction (referred to as the ‘adhesion time’), 2. the reciprocal distance (i.e. the distance in a given view field that was overcome by a rolling platelet), which may be regarded as a measure of an overall platelet ‘immobilization’ on endothelium integrated through time, and 3. the integrated measure of these two parameters, the so called reciprocal ‘velocity’ of a platelet sliding on the vessel wall (referred to as ‘adhesion time*distance-1’). These results demonstrate that the platelets were sliding with a higher velocity in the arterioles of the peptide-treated group and suggest that peptide 4D significantly inhibits platelets’ ability to interact with endothelial layer of arterioles (Representative video is shown in Film 1, 2 and 3). In contrast to the statistically-significant differences in platelet-arteriole wall interactions observed between the peptide 4D treated group and the nontreated group, we observed that peptide 4D treatment did not have an effect on the interaction times of platelets within venules (Representative video is shown in Film 4, 5 and 6). Data from intravital microscopy demonstrate that peptide 4D blocks the adhesion of platelets to inflamed arterioles suggesting a critical role of F11R in the adhesion of platelets to cytokine-inflamed endothelium.

Tailoring the microstructure and suppressing the β-AlFeSi intermetallic formation in 319 aluminum alloy through spray forming
Contributors: Lucas Otani
... Iron has very low solubility in aluminum, leading to the formation of Fe-rich intermetallic phases, such as β-AlFeSi. This phase forms with a platelet-like morphology that is detrimental to the mechanical properties of the alloy. It is well known that by applying high cooling rates or by adding manganese to the alloy it is possible to stabilize the α-AlFeSi or α-Al(Fe,Mn)Si intermetallic phase instead of the more detrimental β-AlFeSi. Spray forming is an advanced casting process that has been described as a potential technique to suppress β-AlFeSi formation. This work investigated the effect of different processing parameters on the microstructure evolution of spray-formed aluminum 319 alloy, mainly regarding the formation of α and β intermetallic phases. Results showed that the suppression of the β-AlFeSi strongly depends on the processing conditions and can be explained by the solidification mechanism prevailing in spray forming.
