The dynamic market is constantly improving technologically available treatment aids. To better understand market demand, a questionnaire survey of more than 70 practising endodontists was conducted in the presented article, and a Touch and Heat (TH) tool model with and without heat loss consideration was developed. To validate the theoretical model, a 2D FEA analysis was performed using ANSYS academic. The presented article discovered that with 40 turns of high-resistance wire, a delay of 25 seconds, and an ignored heat loss, the operating temperature of 120°C can be achieved. After accounting for heat loss, it was discovered that 63 turns of wire were sufficient to reach operating temperature in 5 seconds, which was deemed reasonable and in line with the FEA model within 5% to 8% variation along the tool's length.</p> Swanand Pachpore Copyright (c) 17 2 THE IMPACT OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE CONSUMPTION HABIT ON WOMEN IN MALUKU PROVINCE, INDONESIA http://journal.achsm.org.au/index.php/achsm/article/view/2247 <p>The culture of drinking alcohol which is done by men and women in activities related to traditional events has grown into a habit for Maluku People.
