Characterization of Egg Laying Hen and Broiler Fecal Microbiota in Poultry Farms in Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovenia
(Public Library of Science, 2014-10-16)
Poultry meat is the most common protein source of animal origin for humans. However, intensive breeding of animals in confined spaces has led to poultry colonisation by microbiota with a zoonotic potential or encoding ...
Succession and Replacement of Bacterial Populations in the Caecum of Egg Laying Hens over Their Whole Life
(Public Library of Science, 2014-12-12)
In this study we characterised the development of caecal microbiota in egg laying hens over their commercial production lifespan, from the day of hatching until 60 weeks of age. Using pyrosequencing of V3/V4 variable regions ...
Determining fracture energy parameters of concrete from the modified compact tension test
(Gruppo Italiano Frattura, 2014-09-01)
The modified compact tension (MCT) test, though not yet recognized as a valid test for determining fracture energy of concrete, is believed to represent a plausible and suitable alternative versus other well established ...
Critical applied stresses for a crack initiation from a sharp V-notch
(Gruppo Italiano Frattura, 2014-10-31)
The aim of the paper is to estimate a value of the critical applied stress for a crack initiation from a sharp V-notch tip. The classical approach of the linear elastic fracture mechanics (LELM) was generalized, because ...
Modification of Plasma Sprayed TiO2 Coatings Characteristics via Controlling the In-flight Temperature and Velocity of the Powder Particles
The study presents a comprehensive research on the plasma spray fabrication of TiO2 coatings with microstructural properties adjustable via controlling the respective in-flight properties of the feedstock particles. The ...
