Custom-Built Isothermal Heat Conduction Calorimeter

Prologue A Heat Conduction Isothermal Calorimeter is used to determine the heat flow rate of a specific process or reaction, in my case, it is designed to measure the heat rate of hydration of cement in the field of Civil Engineering and Materials Science. The purpose of this custom-built Isothermal Calorimeter is to undertake the ASTM C1702 Standard Test Method for Measurement of Heat of Hydration of Hydraulic Cementitious Materials Using Isothermal Conduction Calorimetry....

Detect SARS-CoV-2 virus using Near-infrared spectroscopy

This work is still-in-progress; originally started on 25 March, 2020. And, interestingly gained some interest during that time on-wards. This work is NOT affiliated with any group, organisation or team. The HackADay project page. Prologue Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is nothing new. However, it’s a relatively new method deployed in the field of virology. It has been successfully used before to identify HIV-1 and Influenza virus....
