Estimating the glass transition temperature for polymers in 'confined geometries'

Added: 22.03.2017 18:54 | 0 views | 0 comments

Polystyrene has a glass transition temperature of about 100 C -- at room temperature it behaves like a solid material. But as its temperature approaches the glass transition temperature, polystyrene’s mechanical properties change drastically. This makes the ability to approximate glass transitions for confined geometries in polymers highly desirable. And now, as researchers report that they’ve developed a simple formula to do just that.

After record temperatures and massive bleaching in 2016, scientists fear that the Great Barrier Reef has again experienced deadly coral bleaching. Researchers warn that the only way to save the Reef is to stop global warming.


Rare-earths become water-repellent only as they age

Surfaces that have been coated with rare earth oxides develop water-repelling properties only after contact with air. Even at room temperature, chemical reactions begin with hydrocarbons in the air. Researchers report that it is these reactions that are responsible for the hydrophobic effect.

Phil writes, "It's officially the first day of spring here in Central City! The temperatures will get warmer, the flowers will begin blooming, and the skies will shine brighter. Oh, and SuperPhillip Central's Favorite VGMs are only going to get better! Okay, maybe they'll stay as awesome as they were before. I don't want to over-promise here! This first day of spring edition of SuperPhillip Central's Favorite VGMs begins with a upbeat city theme from the new batch of Pokemon games, Pokemon Sun and Moon. Then, we kick it up with some hard rock from Hyrule Warriors. Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride soon follows with a delightful town theme, and 7th Dragon III: Code VFD and The Last Remnant close this edition with equally intense battle themes! And you know the drill by now, but even if you don't-- just click on the VGM volume name to hear its song, as well as look at the VGM Database for all past VGM volumes. Now, let's get on to the music!"


Ryzen rumors: Perception vs. reality with AMD's new CPU

Added: 21.03.2017 10:00 | 0 views | 0 comments

With the Ryzen 7 launch just two weeks old and Ryzen 5 nearly upon us, AMD’s comeback CPUs are generating as much controversy, confusion, and misinformation as they are excitement. We're cutting through the chatter to give you the real answers about AMD’s new CPU.Perception: Ryzen runs hot Reality: Not true
Despite really low thermal design power (TDP) ratings, Ryzen chips have oddly been labeled as running hot. The problem seems to relate to how utilities are reading the new chips' on-die sensors. AMD, in fact, just disclosed that certain CPUs feature offsets that make it look like they're running hot.
“In the short term, users of the AMD Ryzen 1700X and 1800X can simply subtract 20°C to determine the true junction temperature of their processor. No arithmetic is required for the Ryzen 7 1700. Long term, we expect temperature monitoring software to better understand our tCTL offsets to report the junction temperature automatically,” the company wrote in a .
