Earthquakes are a way of life on Earth, and, whether you live in an area that is often affected by earthquakes or not, every building, every road, every bridge, and, in fact, almost everything constructed by humans in which we walk, sleep, live, sit, or visit, has to be constructed to withstand an earthquake, by following local, regional, or national codes, laws, and regulations. Further to this, the science and engineering behind these constructions go further than what is mandated by government as a part of their practice. All construction, and, in general, all life on Earth, has some risk of seismic impacts. A comprehensive description of any seismic action may be given only on a probabilistic basis and, in general, is very bulky and quite uncertain. However, for a variety of structures or systems that meet fairly simple models of behavior during earthquakes, a general description of the seismic action is not required, for prediction of the status of such facilities or systems may be sufficient to define one or more common parameters of seismic impact. Thus, it makes sense to search for optimal parameters of influence in which optimality is understood with the greatest ease with sufficient information. This book contains a description of several models of seismic effects and examples of implementation of these models at specific sites. Using this information, scientists and engineers can design structures that are stronger, safer, and longer-lasting. It is a must-have for any scientist, engineer, or student working in or researching seismic loads and constructions with a view toward withstanding seismic activity.

The Lost Petal of the White Rose
3,56 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Lost Petal of The White Rose is science fiction blended into the background of a dysfunctional American government that has been taken over by the multi-national corporations and powerful elite. The novel is told from the voices of two strong female characters--astronomers and astro-physicists Melibea Paz and her mentor Dr. Trailing Arbutus Banks. Melibea discovers a supernova, but then the supernova mysteriously disappears. The worlds scientists discover that the SN and part of the White Rose Galaxy have been consumed by another universe that is expanding toward Earth. They attempt to procure funding to find a way to stop the other universe from devouring our own, only to confront a stubbornly resistant congress beholden to corporate powers. As the other universe approaches Earth at a speed faster than light, Melibea faces her own personal conflicts in her relation with the man she loves and her growing feelings for a fellow astronomer. Earth is eventually saved by an unexpected source from deep in space. The novel is told in the voice of two strong female characters who never say quit. And amid all the SF and political drama with a government that has become the enemy of truth, appear a number of quirky characters and loads of humor.

Creating Freedom On Earth
4,06 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

No country on earth allows a person the freedom to act as he sees fit where his actions do not infringe upon the freedom of others. To speak against the government, in Africa, Middle East, Europe, or the USA. In some countries, you have to listen to the Friday Muslim prayers broadcast over load speakers into your home. Or listen to church bells on Sundays. A Christian cannot build a church in some countries to practice his/her religion. In the United States, a Muslim or a Christian Mormon cannot practice polygamy. Polyandry, where one woman can marry more than one husband, is also prohibited in some countries. A Hindu Jain monk, in most places in the world, cannot freely practice his religious belief which allows for being naked all the time, whether walking the public streets or otherwise. Neither can a native of the Amazon Yanomamo tribe, or any person, such as a naturist, who simply wants to live a nude lifestyle. Certain foods are being prohibited. Say you like to eat trans-fat knowing the harm it may cause. Now you cannot order it in some places, by law. The list goes on and on. And yet, like a live frog that is in a pan with water heat being raised gradually, it does not recognize what is going on, and dies instead of jumping out of the boiling water to save its life. Such is the state of freedom on earth, it is being suffocated for many who want it alive.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2016 in the subject Energy Sciences, grade: Masters Degree, Hohai University (Energy and Electrical Collage), course: Electric Power system, language: English, abstract: In July 2012 there was blackout in India. As the result of this disturbance there were two blackouts. In first blackout only the Northern Grid was affected but in the second blackout Northern, Eastern and North-Eastern grid collapsed. A committee formed by the government analyzed the events that resulted in the collapse of system and pointed out no of factors that lead to disturbance. Whole grid collapsed under load encroachment condition. In this thesis different factors have been analyzed using PSCAD simulation and solutions have been proposed. Approximate model of Indian power system has been developed in PSCAD using approximate parameters given in Grid Failure Report issued by the Indian government. Increase in installed capacity of power system and its impact on system frequency and rotor angle has been studied. A new algorithm has been proposed for distance relay operation in Zone 3 to avoid power system blackout using Indian grid model. One of the main factors that lead to the collapse of whole system was the operation of zone 3 distance relay on 400kV Bina-Gwalior Line. This scheme will improve system stability under heavy load conditions. A simplified model in PSCAD was established in order to study the zone 3 protection of distance relay.

In the India of the mid-1970s, Indira Gandhi´s government has just come to power. It institutionalizes corruption and arbitrary force, most oppressive to the poorest and weakest people under its sway. Against this backdrop, in an unnamed city by the sea, four people struggle to survive. Dina, Maneck, and two tailors, the Untouchables Om and Ishvar, who are sewing in Dina´s service, undergo a series of reversals, punctuated only by small mocking advances, that start them on a trajectory towards unhappiness and despair. Yet, in choosing what they will do, they exhibit a basic dignity and humanity that belies their mistreatment as part of the underclass. By merely surviving until their load becomes unbearable, and then living on past that point, they have accomplished something. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Lee.

Contains the first three books in the Purge of Babylon series, including The Purge of Babylon: A Novel Survival, The Gates of Byzantium, and The Stones of Angkor. Stay out of the dark. Load up on silver bullets. And whatever you do, stay alive. Creatures that once lived in the shadows, hidden from humankind, have risen, spreading like a plague across the globe over the course of a single night. Their numbers growing exponentially through infection, these seemingly unkillable creatures have swallowed up whole cities and collapsed unprepared governments. Survivors call it The Purge. Against all odds, a disparate group of survivors has emerged from that blood-soaked night that devastated the planet and reduced humanity to an endangered species. But surviving The Purge was one thing - staying alive is another matter entirely.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Danoff.

Development of Ultra-High Performance Concrete against Blasts: From Materials to Structures presents a detailed overview of UHPC development and its related applications in an era of rising terrorism around the world. Chapters present case studies on the novel development of the new generation of UHPC with nano additives. Field blast test results on reinforced concrete columns made with UHPC and UHPC filled double-skin tubes columns are also presented and compiled, as is the residual load-carrying capacities of blast-damaged structural members and the exceptional performance of novel UHPC materials that illustrate its potential in protective structural design. As a notable representative, ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) has now been widely investigated by government agencies and universities. UHPC inherits many positive aspects of ultra-high strength concrete (UHSC) and is equipped with improved ductility as a result of fiber addition. These features make it an ideal construction material for bridge decks, storage halls, thin-wall shell structures, and other infrastructure because of its protective properties against seismic, impact and blast loads. Focuses on the principles behind UHPC production, properties, design and detailing aspects Presents a series of case studies and filed blast tests on columns and slabs Focuses on applications and future developments Dr Wu is Professor of Structural Engineering at University of Technology Sydney Australia. He is currently the Chair of the Australian Chapter of the International Association of Protective Structures (http://iapsaustralia.org/ (external link)). Since Dr Wu obtained his PhD from School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Nanyang Technical University, Singapore in 2002, he has developed recognized and diverse research on blast-induced ground vibrations, structural response to blast loading, mitigation of blast effects on structures, blast resistance of ultra-high performance concrete etc. So far Dr Wu has attracted more than 4 million dollars research funding from the Australian Research Council (ARC), the Defence Science and Technology Organization (DSTO) Australia and other organizations. He is the editors of three conference proceedings, two ASCE special issues, author or co-authors of more than 220 referred international journal papers and conference papers in blast and impact areas. Dr Wu has served on a number of international conference committees and chairmanship, undertaken guest editorships. Dr Wu is also currently an associate editor of ASCE Journal of Performance of Constructed Facilities and an editorial board member of International Journal of Protective Structures.
