Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Abstract

Because fog represents a safety problem in a European scale, the project aims to establish specifications in order to build a "large" fog chamber. Such a device would allow reproducing atmospheric fogs under several levels of visibility. Mainly dedicated to road safety, this tool would offer a lot of perspectives to automotive industry in the largest sense as well as to decision makers to define standards for road equipment and strategies to decrease the negative effects of fog on human and goods transportation. Therefore, the challenge is to produce and maintain a settled level of visibility inside a large closed room. To reach the goal, the project proposes to develop and verify specifications using a scale model of a fog chamber designed according to the outputs of a numerical model of fog production involving based upon theoretical considerations. Intensive testing of innovative components will be carried out in this scale model.
