Download E-books Materials Characterization: Introduction to Microscopic and Spectroscopic Methods PDF

Now in its moment variation, this maintains to function an incredible textbook for introductory classes on fabrics characterization, in keeping with the author's adventure in educating complicated undergraduate and postgraduate college scholars.

the recent version keeps the winning didactical suggestion of introductions initially of chapters, workout questions and an internet answer handbook. additionally, all of the sections were completely revised, up to date and extended, with significant new issues (electron backscattering diffraction and environmental scanning electron microscopy), in addition to fifty extra questions - in overall approximately 20% new content material.

the 1st half covers favourite equipment for microstructure research, together with mild microscopy, X-ray diffraction, transmission and scanning electron microscopy, in addition to scanning probe microscopy. the second one a part of the ebook is anxious with options for chemical research and introduces X-ray power dispersive spectroscopy, fluorescence X-ray spectroscopy and such well known floor research concepts as photoelectron and secondary ion mass spectroscopy. This part concludes with the 2 most vital vibrational spectroscopies (infra-red and Raman) and the more and more very important thermal research.

The theoretical suggestions are mentioned with a minimum involvement of arithmetic and physics, and the technical points are awarded with the particular dimension perform in brain. Making for an easy-to-read textual content, the booklet by no means loses sight of its meant audience.

Download E-books Astronomy with a Budget Telescope: An Introduction to Practical Observing (The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series) PDF

By Patrick Moore

Astronomy with the cheap Telescope, second Edition is an entire creation to purchasing and utilizing a reasonably cheap beginner astronomical telescope. It offers crucial tricks and tips on what to seem for while paying for on the cheap - the simplest at the moment are very good worth, yet all of them lack an astronomer's recommendation approximately surroundings them up and utilizing them.

Astronomy with the cheap Telescope used to be first released in 2003, in view that then know-how has moved on considerably. the most elements are first the provision of quite low-cost computer-controlled "go-to" telescopes which after constructing can instantly find any celestial gadgets with average accuracy. moment, electronic cameras have now nearly thoroughly displaced "wet" movie cameras, and a few of them are really well-suited to astronomical use. 3rd, costs are down and caliber is up!

This new version is revised and prolonged to incorporate utilizing a inexpensive "go-to" telescope - there are many pitfalls to be kept away from - and the way this type of tool could make novice astronomy extra available to these with constrained time at their disposal. It additionally discusses the hot breed of mid-range electronic cameras that come with strong on-board processing and picture enhancement software program that was on hand simply to individuals with complicated astronomical CCD cameras.

Finally, there are distinct stories and try out experiences on many of the finances telescopes which are on hand on major highway and by way of mail order.

Download E-books Dynamic Failure of Materials: Theory, Experiments and Numerics PDF

By John Dear, Hugh Macgillivray (auth.), H. P. Rossmanith, A. J. Rosakis (eds.)

The speedy velocity of present advancements within the theoretical, analytical, numerical and experimental fields of dynamic failure of fabrics known as for a global seminar of workshop variety geared toward enhancing the discovering and realizing of ideas to the fundamental actual approaches interested in dynamic failure. The Vienna Seminar DFM-l was once held on the Technical collage Vienna within the old management construction within the urban heart less than the auspices of the college. greater than 30 foreign specialists from around the globe the invitation to take part at this seminar. excessive within the checklist of priorities used to be the typical wish for considerable time for discussions after every one technical presenta­ tion, a truth and an opportunity usually made overextensive use of in the course of the seminar. hence, chance was once given to the seminar individuals to provide and disclose rules and result of their unique learn paintings, both terminated, ongoing, proposed or conceived and meant, to a global discussion board of specialists for severe discussions, assessment and appraisal. The technical software incorporated dynamic failure of polymers and metal, numerical modelling of fracture procedures, experimental options and analytical/numerical research of crack/wave interplay difficulties. The scope of the contributions stretched from implementation of complex mathematical thoughts within the theoretical advancements to so much direct functions in quite a few fields of engineering perform. Papers released during this quantity signify revised, up-to-date and multiplied models of the seminar contributions.

Download E-books Zodiac Calendars in the Dead Sea Scrolls and Their Reception: Ancient Astronomy and Astrology in Early Judaism (IJS Studies in Judaica) PDF

By Helen R Jacobus

The traditional mathematical foundation of the Aramaic calendars within the lifeless Sea Scrolls is analysed during this research. Helen R. Jacobus re-examines an Aramaic zodiac calendar with a thunder divination textual content (4Q318) and the calendar from the Aramaic Astronomical booklet (4Q208 - 4Q209), all from Qumran. Jacobus demonstrates that 4Q318 is an ancestor of the Jewish calendar this present day and that it is helping us to appreciate 4Q208 - 4Q209. She argues that those calendars have been taught in antiquity as angelic wisdom defined in "1 Enoch "and the "Book of Jubilees." The research additionally encompasses Babylonian, Hellenistic, Byzantine astronomy and astrology, and classical and Jewish writings. eventually, a medieval Hebrew zodiac calendar with regards to 4Q318 with an astrological textual content is released the following for the 1st time.

Download E-books Biopunk: DIY Scientists Hack the Software of Life PDF

By Marcus Wohlsen

Bill Gates lately informed stressed that if he have been this day, he will be hacking biology. "If you must switch the realm in a few large way," he says, "that's the place you want to start-biological molecules."

the main disruptive strength in the world is living in DNA. Biotech businesses and educational researchers are only commencing to free up the potential for piecing jointly existence from scratch. Champions of artificial biology think that turning genetic code into Lego-like blocks to construct never-before-seen organisms may perhaps clear up the thorniest demanding situations in drugs, power, and environmental safety. yet because the hackers who cracked open the opportunity of the non-public desktop and the web proved, the main innovative discoveries usually emerge from out-of-the-way locations, cast by means of very good outsiders with few assets along with boundless strength and nice ideas.

In Biopunk, Marcus Wohlsen chronicles a starting to be group of DIY scientists operating open air the partitions of enterprises and universities who're dedicated to democratizing DNA the way in which the net did details. The "biohacking" move, now in its early, heady days, goals to unharness a scourge of genetically changed innovation by means of making the instruments and strategies of biotechnology available to every body. Borrowing their idealism from the worlds of open-source software program, artisinal nutrients, net startups, and the Peace Corps, biopunks are committed advocates for open-sourcing the elemental code of existence. they think within the energy of people with entry to DNA to unravel the world's greatest problems.

you will meet a brand new breed of hackers who will not be afraid to get their arms rainy, from marketers who target to carry DNA-based scientific instruments to the poorest of the negative to a curious tinkerer who believes a bath of yogurt and a jellyfish gene may safeguard the world's nutrition provide. those biohackers include:

- A duo who began a melanoma drug corporation of their kitchen
- A staff who outfitted an open-source DNA replica machine
- a girl who built a genetic try in her condominium for a plague that had bothered her family

besides the possibility of citizen technology to lead to disruptive switch, Wohlsen explores the hazards of DIY bioterrorism, the potential for genetic engineering experiments long past awry, and even if the facility to layout lifestyles from scratch on a computer may well come prior to we think.
