It also encompasses more realistic grain shapes and physical interactions between grains. The program can be run on a range of computer platforms from laptops to supercomputers. It can be applied to a wide range of different physical problems that involve granular material. Commercial application of the software includes physical study of granular materials (soils, regolith, snow, powders etc.)...Tue, 13 Dec 2016 14:31:50 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.edu Reactor monolithic reactor reengineers thermochemical reaction containment. The design represents new flow-through chemistry possibilities that capitalize on nascent, additive manufacturing capabilities for production of a single-piece multifunction, integrated device within an otherwise-impossible-to-produce, ultra-compact footprint. The unique design reengineers tubular reaction containment into a fast, safe, scalable, and highly heat efficient option that can open a whole new approach to many forms of flow-through thermochemical processes. Additive manufacturing is very fast, effectively equati...Tue, 16 Aug 2016 12:39:27 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.edu is generally associated with a progressive gain in fat mass and loss of muscle mass. Although weight loss by caloric restriction might be anticipated to be of benefit, traditional caloric restriction-induced weight loss typically promotes an acceleration of muscle atrophy, and further reductions in physical function despite weight loss. Consequently, geriatricians often do not recommend weight loss. Myo-Canine is a food product that maintains skeletal muscle while reducing fat in obese animals.

The method is unique and is applicable in the production of a wide variety of sphingosine analogues, molecules that have potential in the treatment of cancer. Sphingosines can inhibit the rapid increase of cancer cells and it can further transform to SP1 (sphingosine-1-phosphate), which promotes cancer development. This invention relates to the ability to stereoselectively synthesize sphingosine analogues that can potentially perturb the sphing...Mon, 15 Aug 2016 15:11:27 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.edu, 13 Jun 2016 10:38:31 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.edu Vial Design, 11 Feb 2016 12:14:30 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.edu Continuous Sampling Device for Cell Biology and Proteins (Photo Fluorometer) are commonly used in field surveys of plant life to measure chlorophyll content in plant leaves. These devices have been reduced in size and can be considered portable enough for field use; however they remain fairly large and cumbersome and require a significant power supply. This photofluorometer is a stand-alone, portable, and inexpensive analysis tool which provides results in less than 30 minutes. It can be used to read the results of a variety of LOC technologies directly, which would eliminate the requirement for proprietary software or hardware to read the fluorometric res...Thu, 11 Feb 2016 12:11:10 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.edu State Infrasound Sensor, 11 Feb 2016 12:09:24 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.edu Detection Method, 11 Feb 2016 12:05:20 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.edu Response Volcanic Ash Detector for Aircraft invention is an integrated system for warning an aircraft, either fixed wing or rotor, of potentially hazardous concentrations of volcanic ash, or other large ambient aerosols, in its surrounding environment. This system is designed to function on-board the aircraft and warn the crew of increasing concentrations of volcanic ash so they can exit the encountered volcanic ash plume prior to the aircraft encountering the high concentrations of ash in the heart of the plume.Wed, 10 Feb 2016 17:34:46 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.edu Correction for Environmental Distortion ("Over the Horizon"), 10 Feb 2016 17:32:45 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.edu and Systems for Conducting Near-Field Source Tracking Version 4 (Noisy Tracker), 10 Feb 2016 17:29:29 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.edu for Brain Regions Involved in Season Dependent A1AR Agonist-Induced Torpor, 10 Feb 2016 17:27:14 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.edu Tracker System, 10 Feb 2016 17:23:49 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.edu Metabolism Monitoring Device and App device will allow a user to monitor the metabolic fuels used, and identify the point of exercise when theswitch to fat metabolism has occurred. This will be motivating and reassuring to the user, but also the device couldprovide digital coaching to instruct the user to modify the intensity of their exercise to efficiently induce fat metabolism.The device can learn from past performance what will specifically optimize fat metabolism for a given individual. Thedevice can allow the user to get optimal outcomes from different types of exercise so that they can confidently mixexercise routines ...Wed, 10 Feb 2016 16:39:52 GMTuaf-oipc@alaska.edu Ash Analysis and Detection Technology (VAL/CAL) and systems of rapidly validating accuracy in particle cloud forecast transport and dispersion models.
