    The present work intends to demonstrate and accompany the creation process of the Museu do Mar e da Indústria Conserveira de Matosinhos. A project of undeniable relevance, a partnership between the Municipality of Matosinhos and Fábrica Pinhais, which combines desires and sensitivities, oriented towards a common goal, in a process that makes it unique. The elaboration of this work focuses on the phases of constitution of the Museum, registering aspects of the definition of the conceptual structure, of the museological and architectural project, until obtaining the final result, which is the product of different contributions of the entities involved that combine different wills to achieve the final goal. This museum intends to show current and future generations what the canning industry was like, namely in the Municipality of Matosinhos, illustrating its development until today, keeping the memory of this activity, which will allow Matosinhos to return an important part of its history and of its culture. The present work intends to approach the different aspects that are indispensable to the constitution of the museum and present the different stages necessary for its creation. Refer to the technical and practical aspects, the architecture of the building, the installation of the collection, as well as the administrative aspects. As well as reflecting on the role it can play as a museum of social, economic and technological history, considering the almost unique diversity of its collection, in the contribution it will make to the construction of the memory of the canning industry, and in the context of the tourist exploration of these themes O presente trabalho pretende demonstrar e acompanhar o processo de criação do Museu do Mar e da Indústria Conserveira de Matosinhos. Um projeto de inegável relevância, uma parceria entre a Câmara Municipal de Matosinhos e a Fábrica Pinhais, que alia vontades e sensibilidades, orientadas para um objetivo comum, num processo que o torna único. A elaboração deste trabalho foca-se nas fases de constituição do Museu, abordando aspetos da definição da estrutura conceptual, do projeto museológico e arquitetónico, até se obter o resultado final, produto dos diferentes contributos das entidades envolvidas que conjugam diferentes vontades para alcançar o objetivo final. Este museu pretende mostrar às gerações atuais e vindouras o que foi a indústria conserveira, designadamente no concelho de Matosinhos, ilustrando o seu desenvolvimento até à atualidade, guardando a memória desta atividade, o que permitirá devolver a Matosinhos uma parte importante da sua história e da sua cultura. Com o presente trabalho pretende-se abordar os distintos aspetos indispensáveis à constituição do museu e apresentar as diferentes etapas necessárias à sua criação. Referir os aspetos técnicos e práticos, a arquitetura do edifício, a instalação da coleção, assim como os aspetos administrativos. Assim como refletir, sobre o papel que possa assumir enquanto museu de história social, económica e tecnológica, considerando a diversidade quase única do seu acervo, no contributo que dará para a construção da memória da indústria conserveira, e no contexto da exploração turística destes temas.

    A field study tested the ability of a protein, Right-Handed Coiled-Coil (RHCC), to bind polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in aquatic environments. The usefulness of RHCC as a sampling matrix for a new passive sampling device was compared to a traditional semi-permeable membrane device (SPMD) matrix. Mesocosms were treated with diluted bitumen and RHCC did not bind PAHs as efficiently as the SPMD. The study did however, determine that RHCC has the capability to bind some smaller PAHs. It is still unknown if RHCC binds these smaller PAHs more quickly than SPMDs. A positive, but insignificant relationship between [PAHs] in fish and RHCC was observed. The same comparison between [PAHs] in fish and SPMDs was negative. No significant relationships were observed among [PAHs] in water, sediment, or between the two passive samplers. RHCC has the capabilities of a promising PSD for small PAHs with more studies required to confirm its usefulness.

    The Weibull stress (Beremin, 1983) relates the local first principal stress and plastically strained volume to the probability of fracture. It requires two constants (m, σu) as input, which are generally regarded as material parameters. As the Beremin approach is used in the background to structural analysis rules, the Beremin parameters are now being used in other situations, including engineering analysis. However, the currently accepted way to find the Beremin constants requires twenty tests, which is considered to be unacceptably expensive for industrial application. Less expensive ways of finding the Beremin parameters have been published in the literature, but they have never been compared to the de facto standard. In this paper, the Beremin parameters were found by the de facto standard method and two other ways, and a comparison is made. It was found that the Beremin parameters can be estimated with reasonable accuracy with a method that uses on just two sets (six specimens) of fracture specimens by careful application of the method of Andrieu (2012). Also, a proposal is made for another method which is based only on the Master Curve temperature T0.

    Pharmaceticals are considered as emerging pollutants of particular concern due to their continuous release into the environment and the potential impact on aquatic organisms. We performed a screening in the wastewater of the WWTP Sevnica in three samplings: March, June and December 2015. We detected more than 30% of the monitored pharmaceuticals in different concentration range. Tramadol was present in the effluent at concentration above 1 µg/L, both in June and December 2015. The main goal was to develop a simple method for the extraction of selected from fish tissue. The results showed presence of tramadol and carbamazepine in some tissue, but the concentrations were below the limit of quantification.

    Pharmaceuticals are considered as emerging pollutants of particular concern due to their continuous release into the environment and the potential impact on aquatic organisms. The selection of the target compounds for evaluation in fish tissue was based on physico-chemical properties, bioaccumulation potential and the results of the screening of pharmaceuticals in the effluent of WWTP Sevnica in March 2015. We chose tramadol, risperidone, desipramine, carbamazepine, irbesartan, naproxen, valsartan, atorvastatin, triclosan, simvastatin and diclofenac. The method was developed on muscle tissue and is based on the tissue homogenization with stainless steel beads, followed by extraction with acetonitrile, centrifugation and sample clean-up with solid-phase extraction (SPE). The instrumental analysis was performed with LC-MS/MS. The best and the most reproducible recoveries were observed for the samples that were diluted to 25 mL with 50 mM phosphate buffer pH 7. The method was validated and the linearity range was established, which was in the range of 0.1 – 1000 ng/g, depending of the compound. The recoveries for the target pharmaceuticals were in the range of 24.0 – 108.5 %, with good reproducibility as the relative RSD values for all compounds were below 7.5 %. LOQ values for the compounds were in the 0.1 – 50 ng/g range. We applied the method to the fish tissue samples from the river Sava and from the aquaculture establishment. We chose muscle, liver, skin and kidney tissue samples. The results showed presence of tramadol and carbamazepine in some tissue, but the concentrations were below the LOQ.
