Quantitative Geology of Late Jurassic Epicontin...
74,89 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The book summarizes about 40 years of the author's research on sedimentary geology in an epicontinental (shelf) sea during the Late Jurassic in northern Switzerland. It presents a synopsis of the interplay of varying paleoclimate, of sea level variations, of varying water depth, of sea floor topography, of vertical and lateral facies changes, of processes of sedimentation like aggradation and progradation, of compaction, of the great regional differences in rates of sedimentation and in isostatic equilibration of the lithosphere under load, and of concomitant synsedimentary tectonics. Regional variation in isostatic adjustment of the lithosphere to the increasing load of sediments is analyzed by means of time correlations based on a detailed biochronology of ammonites in combination with mineral stratigraphy using the comparatively stable clay mineral kaolinite, and with sequence stratigraphy.

This book for the first time illustrates the history and significance of rammed earth construction in Central Europe, particularly in Switzerland, using historical examples to investigate the potential of that building technique for contemporary construction. As such, it represents a pioneering comprehensive documentation that will contribute to safeguarding existing architectural monuments, while also providing the foundation for further research.Based on that evidence, the editors investigate the material’s potential for modern day edifices, especially from the perspective of regional architecture claiming to establish identity and save resources. Due to the material’s advantages – rammed earth is strong, durable and non-combustible as well as providing quality indoor air conditions – it was already used in the 16th and 17th centuries. Today, disadvantages such as on site weather-dependency can be circumvented by using prefabricated elements. Possible load bearing problems solely due to pressure can be bypassed by pre-stressing the structure. By carrying out measures such as these, the building material – being ecologically sustainable and completely recyclable – will become an attractive alternative for contemporary construction methods.

How can one think about and make a group exhibition today? This is one of the questions this publication could answer based on the experience of Balthazar Lovay, a Swiss artist and a co-founder of the independent art space Hard Hat in Geneva. Invited to organize an exhibition at Le Manoir de Martigny in the Swiss Alps, he responded by creating a kind of mental universe in which left and right cerebral cortexes could at last talk to each other. To achieve this, he brought together, in a transversal and non-authoritarian manner, 60 international and local artists, photographers, and press cartoonists, and juxtaposed contemporary artworks with medieval devotional relics and so-called "art brut." For example, Max Ernst's "Histoire naturelle" converses with carnival masks, New-York-based artists Guyton/Walker are hung next to a 14th-century polychrome Christ. As the curator writes: "The result creates confrontations or, more precisely, situations. These are not directive, but open and suggestive. Hence, on the surface, there is an exhibition that could be the image of my personal museum and, in an underlying way, a more general questioning about art. Most important for me was to make a non-hierarchal proposal, by taking the risk of flirting with this big load of nonsense." * * As a literary extension of the exhibition "Adventure, Reflection, and Ambush," this book offers a photo-report of the successive sections ("Fantastic Paraphrenia," "Mental Landscape (Before Dying)," etc.) and a conversation between Balthazar Lovay and Swiss art critic and curator Daniel Baumann, co-curator of the Carnegie International 2013. The reader can drift through the book as the visitor drifted through the exhibition. * * Published with Le Manoir de la Ville de Martigny, Switzerland, and with the support of BFAS, Blondeau Fine Art Services, Geneva, La Ville de Martigny, and La Ville de Genève. *

Sandwich Structures 7: Advancing with Sandwich ...
482,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Over the last few years the science and technology of sandwich structures and materials has gained an impressive momentum, and the use of sandwich structures and materials in a variety of products covering the range from sporting goods to satellites is on the increase. Sandwich structures represent a special form of a laminated composite material or structural elements, where a relatively thick, lightweight and compliant core material separates thin stiff and strong face sheets. The faces are usually made of laminated polymeric based composite materials, and typically, the core can be a honeycomb type material, a polymeric foam or balsa wood. The faces and the core are joined by adhesive bonding, which ensures the load transfer between the sandwich constituent parts. The result is a special laminate with very high bending stiffness and strength to weight ratios. Sandwich structures are being used successfully for a variety of applications such as spacecraft, aircraft, train and car structures, wind turbine blades, boat/ship superstructures, boat/ship hulls and many others. The overall objective of the 7th International Conference on Sandwich Structures (ICSS-7) is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest research and technology on all aspects of sandwich structures and materials, spanning the entire spectrum of research to applications in all the fields listed above. Previous conferences in this series were held at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden, in 1989; the University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida, in 1992; Southampton University, Southampton, U.K., in 1995; the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden, in 1998; the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich, Switzerland, in 2001; and in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, in 2003.
