Drive Train Innovations for the Next Generation of Wind Turbines

submitted by: RASEIBoulder
Summary: As tax credits expire for wind energy, the ability to compete with established energy sources is critical. All wind turbine manufacturers are examining their next generation turbines with an eye towards reducing their cost, increasing energy production, and improving reliability. Because the drive train accounts for such a large part of the rotor nacelle assembly cost, it has become a prime target for design change. Drive train innovations which reduce cost, increase energy...

A comparison of teeth and implants during maintenance therapy in terms of the number of disease-free years and costs - An in vivo internal control study

submitted by: fardal
Background: Little is known about the cost minimization and cost effectiveness involved in maintaining teeth and implants for patients treated for periodontal disease. Materials and methods: A retrospective study was carried out encompassing all patients who had initial periodontal treatment followed by implant placement and maintenance therapy in a specialist practice in Norway. The neighbouring tooth and the contralateral tooth were used as controls. The number of disease-free years...
