Handbook of Elementary Rheology

The e-book is acceptable as a primary creation to the topic of Rheology for any pupil of technological know-how or engineering. in spite of the fact that, having labored in for thirty years, i'm additionally attempting to meet the wishes of my commercial colleagues who -often with none earlier education within the topic of rheology - locate themselves having to paintings at the formula and processing of non-Newtonian drinks.

Newton's Principia for the Common Reader (Physics) (Psychology)

This paintings, even if past my competence in arithmetic, is designed for "the universal reader. " With just--a desideratum I lack--calculus and geometry, Chandra demonstrates yes basic scholia of Newton's treatise. yet he does greater than this. He indicates us what Descartes suspected--that the classical geometers and Newton, in a manner, new an analogous issues.

Molecular hydrodynamics

This graduate-level advent to the idea and functions of time correlation services and the molecular concept of fluid dynamics offers experimentalists with the theoretical instruments precious for research of experimental effects, and theoreticians a entire resource of illustrations of theories so much appropriate in useful functions.

The peroxide explosive tester (PET) developed by Israeli scientists can detect triacetone triperoxide (TATP), a chemical commonly used in suicide bombs. The military authorities expect wide-ranging capabilities from technology advances involving every aspect of military life: arms, armor, armaments, communications, intelligence, and counter-intelligence, planes, submarines, UAVs, warships, robotics, and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and software products capable of meeting stringent reliability requirements.

This particular wall-penetrating radar is most suitable for battlefield applications and scanning disaster sites. 5 MEMS for Commercial, Industrial, Scientific, and Biomedical System Applications Material presented in this section identifies the potential applications of MEMS devices in commercial, industrial, scientific, and biomedical sectors. Current research indicates that nanotubes, NWs, nanocrystals, nanoskins, and nanofilms will play key roles in the design and development of sensors best suited for above applications.

Most of these materials can be used in the fabrication of critical components of MEMS devices. R. 2008 1:20pm Compositor Name: JGanesan Highlights and Chronological Developmental History of MEMS & 15 known before their use in fabrication of mirror membranes, electrically pumped vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) diodes and VCSEL optical amplifiers. Material requirements for NWs, nanocrystals, nanoribbons, and nanotubes will be specified to meet specific performance requirements. Scientists at Portland State University, Oregon, have obtained near-IR emissions centered at 393 nm from the zinc oxide (ZnO) nanostructures when embedded in polymer.
