Nick Atkins: Aero Engine Internal Flows

The November 5, 2012 New Trends in Aerospace presentation. This talk introduced the role of research into the aero-thermodynamics of the flow internal to an aero-engine core within the context of these future engine architectures. In places, the fluid physics share characteristics with atmospheric weather systems. In addition, the fluid flow is often coupled to the thermal field and it is fair to say that the accuracy of numerical predictions is perhaps a generation behind that of the blades

3.1 Agents of eutrophication

Light availability, water availability, temperature and the supply of plant nutrients are the four most important factors determining NPP. Altered availability of nutrients affects the rate of primary production in all ecosystems, which in turn changes the biomass and the species composition of communities.

1.2 Resource availability and species diversity

A wide range of ecosystems has been studied in terms of their species diversity and the availability of resources. Each produces an individual relationship between these two variables, but a common pattern emerges from most of them, especially when plant diversity is being considered. This pattern has been named the humped-back relationship and suggests diversity is greatest at intermediate levels of productivity in many systems (Figure 1.5).

6.2 Non-covalent bonding in site-specific binding

The affinity of a protein for DNA is determined in thermodynamic terms by the free energies of the individual components compared to the free energy of the DNA-protein complex. DNA binding proteins, which contain different binding motifs, demonstrate a wide range of thermodynamic strategies.

The affinity of a site-specific DNA binding protein for its specific DNA sequence is generally of the order of 104−107 times greater than its affinity for non-specific sequen

2.9 Summary of Section 2

  1. Obesity is determined by a number of factors including environmental variables, such as the macronutrient content, energy density and fat content of available diets. Using whole room indirect calorimetry it has been found that humans are not good at recognizing the difference between low and high energy diets. Furthermore fat is less good at inducing satiety than are either carbohydrate or protein.
