The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) on the stability of red blood cells (RBCs) and platelets. Bovine blood cells (n=5) were treated with the pressure of 55, 110, 154 and 220MPa at 25C for 5min. Light microscopy, atomic force microscopy and flow cytometry studies revealed that RBCs were morphologically stable up until the 220MPa pressure treatments, at which surface modifications were observed. The platelets were found to be less stable than RBCs. HHP application did not cause any significant change in the signal intensity, band area and frequency values of the infrared bands with the exception that a significant variation was observed in the area of the cholesterol band. No statistically significant variations were observed in the secondary structure elements due to HHP treatment according to the artificial neural network study based on the FTIR data.


Use of pulsed-high hydrostatic pressure treatment to decrease patulin in apple juice
Avsaroglu, M. D.; Bozoglu, F.; Alpas, Hami; LARGETEAU, ALAIN; Demazeau, G. (Informa UK Limited, 2015-04-03)
This study was aimed at reducing patulin content of apple juice using a non-thermal method, namely pulsed-high hydrostatic pressure (p-HHP). Commercially available clear apple juice was contaminated artificially with different concentrations of patulin (5, 50 and 100 ppb). Then, the samples were processed 5 min at different pressure treatments (300-500 MPa) in combination with different temperatures (30-50 degrees C) and pulses (6 pulses x 50 s and 2 pulses x 150 s). To compare the impact of pulses, single ...
Mathematical expression of the temperature profile and experimental determination of compression heating of ethylene glycol during high hydrostatic pressure processing
Buzrul, S.; Alpas, Hami; Largeteau, A.; Demazeau, G. (Informa UK Limited, 2007-03-01)
In this study, we aimed to describe the temperature profile in the pressure vessel and the compression heating during high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) processing. Regression coefficients (R-2), root mean square error (RMSE) values and residual plots suggested that fourth-order polynomial function produced reasonable fits to define the temperature profile for all the pressures studied (300-600 MPa). If all the coefficients of this empirical model are determined, initial and final temperatures, a value close t...
Coalescence of Tollmien-Schlichting and interfacial modes of instability in two-fluid flows
Özgen, Serkan (AIP Publishing, 2008-04-01)
An extensive parametric study is performed to bring out the details of the mode coalescence phenomenon in a two-fluid boundary-layer stability problem. The solution consists of numerically solving the Orr-Sommerfeld equation. The mode coalescence occurs between the Tollmien-Schlichting (TS) mode also found in the classical hydrodynamic stability theory and the interfacial mode that exists in the presence of a viscosity stratification in two-fluid flows. It was previously shown that the coalescence occurs in...
Experimental study on the velocity limits of magnetized rotating plasmas
Teodorescu, C.; Clary, R.; Ellis, R. F.; Hassam, A. B.; Lunsford, R.; Uzun Kaymak, İlker Ümit; Young, W. C. (AIP Publishing, 2008-04-01)
An experimental study on the physical limits of the rotation velocity of magnetized plasmas is presented. Experiments are performed in the Maryland Centrifugal Experiment (MCX) [R. F. Ellis , Phys. Plasmas 12, 055704 (2005)], a mirror magnetic field plasma rotating azimuthally. The externally applied parameters that control the plasma characteristics-applied voltage, external magnetic field, and fill pressure-are scanned across the entire available range of values. It is found that the plasma rotation veloc...
Analysis of the peak position and linewidth as a function of temperature for the phase transitions in LiKSO4
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2016-02-20)
Analysis of the peak position and the linewidths of various infrared modes is performed at high (300-850 K) and low (1.5-300 K) temperatures using the experimental data from the literature for LiKSO4 which exhibits a sequence of phase transitions. The temperature dependences of the frequency and the linewidth which are derived from the anharmonic self-energy are fitted to the observed peak positions and the linewidths of the S-O stretching modes (internal nu(3) modes at 1135 cm(-1) and at 1180 cm(-1)), peak...
