When seeking to test specific hypotheses in large data sets, social and behavioral scientists often construct models. Although useful in such situations, many phenomena of interest do not occur in large samples and do not lend themselves to precise measurement. In addition, a focus on hypothesis testing can constrict the potential use of models as... more...

Accurate 3D experimental particle trajectory data, acquired from a laboratory tumbling mill using bi-planar X-ray filming, are used to validate the discrete element method (DEM). Novel numerical characterisation techniques are presented that provide a basis for comparing the experimental and simulated charge behaviour. These techniques are based on... more...

The book presents variational methods combined with boundary integral equation techniques in application to a model of dynamic bending of plates with transverse shear deformation. The emphasis is on the rigorous mathematical investigation of the model, which covers a complete study of the well-posedness of a number of initial-boundary value problems,... more...
Kunststoffe für den Bautenschutz und die Betoninstandsetzung: Der Baustoff als Werkstoff (BauPraxis) (German Edition)Springer 2006; US$ 39.95
Ausgehend von den chemischen Grundlagen werden in diesem Buch die Anwendung und der Einsatz von Kunststoffen im Bauwesen beschrieben. Neben dem allgemeinen Schutz von Oberflächen gehen die Autoren auf die Verfahren im Rahmen von Sanierungsmaßnahmen ein und analysieren kunststoffmodifizierte Baustoffe. more...

Two models of lifetime estimation due to fatigue, based on stresses and the strain energy density parameter are presented in this book. For the uniaxial loading state it discusses the model using local stresses was discussed. This model includes a value of the theoretical notch coefficient. In concludes that fatigue life of steel welded joints does... more...

Considering that we have to spend the whole of our lives in this human machine, considering that it is our sole means of contact and compromise with the rest of the world, we really do devote to it very little attention. When I say 'we,' I mean our inmost spirits, the instinctive part, the mystery within that exists. And when I say 'the... more...
