The miniaturization and performance improvement in semiconductor devices and
integrated circuits (ICs) are expected to continue through leveraging of nanotechnologies and
nanomaterials. This evolution should accelerate the System-on-a-Chip (SoC) trend, i.e., singlechip
integration of multifunctional, mixed-signal electronic components, toward realizing
embedded nanoelectronic systems.
In the four years since the first edition of Enzymes was published, I have been
delighted to learn of the wide acceptance of the book throughout the biochemical
community, and particularly in the pharmaceutical community. During this
time a number of colleagues have contacted me to express their views on the
value of the text, and importantly to make suggestions for improvements to the
content and presentation of some concepts. I have used the first edition as a
teaching supplement for a course in which I lecture at the University of
Pennsylvania School of...
Metal cutting puts extreme demands on the tool and tool material through conditions of high forces, high contact pressures, high temperatures, and intense chemical attack by difficult to cut work materials. In addition, the tool geometry and cutting conditions in terms of sharp edges, cyclic engagement and presence of cutting fluid will add to the severity. Most often cutting tools are used close to their ultimate resistance against these loads, especially to the limiting thermal and mechanical stresses. ...
The book "Applied Fracture Mechanics" presents a collection of articles on application of fracture mechanics methods to materials science, medicine, and engineering. In thirteen chapters, a wide range of topics is discussed, including strength of biological tissues, safety of nuclear reactor components, fatigue effects in pipelines, environmental effects on fracture among others. In addition, the book presents mathematical and computational methods underlying the fracture mechanics applications, and also developments in statistical modeling of fatigue.
Transmission to New Hosts
As part of the pathogenic process, most microbes are shed from the host, often in a form infectious for susceptible individuals. However, the rate of transmissibility may not necessarily be high, even if the disease is severe in the infected individual, as transmissibility and virulence are not linked traits.
