Teeth treated with Papacarie as well as conventional methods showed more marginal leakage at the surrounding enamel when compared to those at the dentin and at the base of the cavity floor. Papacarie treated teeth had high shear bond strength (12.91 [+ or -] 2.75 MPa) when compared to conventionally treated teeth (9.64 [+ or -] 5.13 MPa) as shown in Figure 2.

KitchenAid's CleanBake Hidden Element has been placed under the cavity floor. Previously, the bottom element was in the chamber.
The results of active and passive control techniques are compared with the baseline case in terms of pressure fluctuations both on the trailing wall and on the cavity floor, sound pressure levels at the leading edge, trailing edge walls, and cavity floor and in terms of formation of the flow structures as presented by density, pressure, temperature, streamwise velocity contours, and streamlines.
