Abstract : The assessment of appropriateness of several computing methods for calculating thermal conductivity of mixtures involving polyatomic gases has been investigated by performing calculations on a large number of actual systems where experimental data are available. The procedures are : the linear and reciprocal mixing rules; a combination of these two; a quadratic expression method; three methods of Hirschfelder, Curtiss and Bird; and Lindsay Bromley method. Nineteen different binary gas pairs and six ternary systems have been considered. This work will help in predicting thermal conductivity of mixtures in respect of which directly measured values are not available.

Subject : 58 Botany
Keywords : Malus Sylvestris;Fungus;Rot of Fruits;Ferrous
Abstract : Effects of sulphur compounds on the growth of hendersonula toruloidea Nattrass, causing brown rot of fruits of Malus sylvestris Mill, Has been studied. Nine different sources of sulphur have been used and out of them Ferrous sulphate is found to be best. Zinc sulphate, sodium thiosulphate, potassium persulphate, magnesium sulphate and sodium sulphate support good growth of the organism and are identical sources for this fungus. Ammonium sulphate, potassium sulphate and zinc sulphite support poor growth of the fungus.

Subject : 532.542 Fluid Dynamics
Keywords : Laminar Boundary Layer Flow;Skin Friction
Abstract : Unsteady laminar boundary layer flow of a viscous incompressible and electrically conducting fluid past a non conducting infinite porous flat plate with variable suction in the presence of a uniform transverse magnetic field is considered. General formulae for velocity and skin friction are obtained under the assumption that the magnetic Reynolds numbers is small. The dependence of velocity and skin friction on Hartmann number (M) is discussed graphically.

Keywords : Chi squares;Quadratic
Abstract : In this paper the probability density functions for definite and indefinite quadratic forms of non central normal variates have been derived by integrating the joint distribution of sum and difference of two weighted chi-squares.

Subject : 548 Crystallography;54 Chemistry
Keywords : Law of Cooling;Quadratic Temperature Profile;Heat Balance Integral method
Abstract : Using two parameter quadratic temperature profile in conjunction with the heat balance integral method, approximate solutions for the freezing of a semi infinite slab and inward freezing of a circular cylinder are investigated, with the assumption that the freezing takes place at the surface of the solidifying medium according to Newton's law of cooling. Comparison with the existing solutions on the former problem shows good agreement.

Abstract : A process for the synthesis of p-carboxybenzene sulphonylchloride by oxidation of toluene-p-sulphonylchloride as well as toluene-p-sulphonic acid has been developed. p-carboxybenzene sulphonylchloride on condensation with di-n-propylamine yield p-(di-n-propylsulphamyl)-benzoic acid, an uricusuric agent employed in chronic gouty arthritis and used as an antiuric adjuvant known in trade as "Benemid, Probenecid".

Subject : 612 Physiology
Keywords : Thermoregulatory;Acute Hypoglycemia;Cold Stress
Abstract : Thermoregulatory failure of alcohol administered fasted rates has been studied under acute cold stress. Twentyfour hour fasted rates developed acute hypoglycemia on being given a single oral dose of ethanol (1.3g/kg body weight) during a two hour exposure at -20 degree calcius. Alcohol habituated rates, under similar conditions, more or less maintained their blood sugar concentration.

Keywords : Vampire Aircraft;TorulaSp;Fuselage
Abstract : Incidence of fungal attack on the fuselage of a few Vampire aircraft has been observed. The fungus isolated from the infected regions has been tentatively indentified as TorulaSp. Laboratory experiments have revealed that within four weeks this fungus causes about 44 percent loss in the tensile strength of the brich plywood used in the manufacture of the fuselage of the aircraft.
