Explosives and propellants contain considerable chemical energy that can be converted into rapid expansion. In contrast to the simple burning of a fuel, explosives and propellants are self-contained and do not need an external supply of oxygen via air. Since their energy content inherently creates the risk of accidental triggering of the explosive reaction, the correct synthesis, formulation, and handling during production and use are of utmost importance for safety, necessitating specialist knowledge on energetic materials, their characteristics, handling and applications.
This volume, based on the proceedings of the Sixth International Symposium on Unsteady Aerodynamics, Aeroacoustics and Aeroelasticity of Turbomachines and Propellers aims at promoting an international exchange of current research in unsteady flow phenomena in turbomachines and propellers.
The prediction of ship hydrodynamic performance can be broken down into
the general areas of resistance and propulsion, seakeeping, manoeuvring. Propeller flows and propeller design can be seen as a subtopic of resistance
and propulsion, but it is so important and features special techniques that it
is treated as a separate topic in its own right. Morgan and Lin (1998) give a
good short introduction to the historical development of these techniques to
the state of the art in the late 1990s.
The Space Handbook, first published in 1958, was designed to serve as a basic guide on the uses and characteristics of space systems, including astronautics and its applications, technology in the space environment, rocket vehicles, propulsion systems, propellants, internal power sources, structures and materials
Tuyển tập báo cáo các nghiên cứu khoa học quốc tế ngành hóa học dành cho các bạn yêu hóa học tham khảo đề tài: Mapping of immunogenic and protein-interacting regions at the surface of the seven-bladed β-propeller domain of the HIV-1 cellular interactor EED
b-Propeller phytases (BPPs) with tandemly repeated domains are abundant
in nature. Previous studies have shown that the intact domain is responsi-ble for phytate hydrolysis, but the function of the other domain is rela-tively unknown. In this study, a new dual-domain BPP (PhyH) from
We have recently identified a protein, consisting of seven WD repeats, pre-sumably forming a b-propeller, and a domain identified in Fab1p, YOTB,
VAC1p, and EEA1 (FYVE) domain, ProF. The FYVE domain targets
the protein to vesicular membranes, while the WD repeats allow binding of
the activated kinases Akt and protein kinase (PK)Cf.
Make efficiency a daily part of the job with AutoCAD® 2008 software. The drafting, detailing, and conceptual design leader is showing the way once again. Meticulously refined with the drafter in mind, AutoCAD 2008 propels day-to-day drafting forward with features that increase speed and accuracy while saving time. Annotation scaling and layer properties per viewport minimize workarounds, while text and table enhancements and multiple leaders help deliver an unmatched level of aesthetic precision and professionalism.
Sensor used in this project is MOC 7811 from
Motorola. This is a slotted coupler/interrupter device.
In each revolution as the beam is interrupted,
the sensor generates a positive pulse. Microcontroller
will execute interrupt routine, When a pulse occurs.
Interrupt routine measures the total time taken for one
revolution, divides it by 120, and stores the result into another
Configured in auto-reload mode.
Now, the timer overflows after tiny intervals of time. Each time it
overflows, next stored value is called from the lookup table,
English Grammar 50: 50 - Part 1 Many scientists believe that the dinosaurs were wiped out by a
colossal meteor. According to this theory, a meteor ten kilometers
wide hurtled into the Earth. This collision propelled dust and
dirt into the sky. Imagine a really cloudy summer day. It’s a lot
cooler, right? Well, every day was like that for a long time after
Because it was much darker and cooler, many species of plants
began to die. Soon, there was no food source for plant-eating
dinosaurs, and when they died, there was no food source for
A typical 4 cylinder vehicle cruising along the highway at around 50 miles per hour, will produce 4000 controlled explosions per minute inside the engine as the spark plugs ignite the fuel in each cylinder to propel the vehicle down the road.
Consolidation, international expansion, regulatory pressure, rising customer expectations, and reduced customer loyalty—these are just a few of the challenges banks face today. To survive, they must
achieve competitive differentiation by developing innovative offerings and streamlining their business processes based upon insight and measurement.
Inventions in steam engines, cotton mills, and iron works converged in the
eighteenth century to propel the First Industrial Revolution. Inventions in
internal combustion engines, electrification, and steelmaking in the nineteenth
century ushered in the Second Industrial Revolution. Today, twentieth-century
inventions in digital technology are being conjoined with twenty-first-century
innovations in software, materials and advanced manufacturing processes,
robotics, and web-based services to inaugurate the Third Industrial Revolution.
Hydrogen fuel cells are one of the most promising alternatives to internal combustion engine hybrids and pure battery electric power for propelling passenger vehicles. Compared to internal combustion engine hybrid vehicles burning hydrocarbon fuels, fuel cell vehicles offer three primary advantages. First, the fuel cell system produces no tank-to-wheel carbon dioxide emissions and no other harmful emissions such as oxides of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, or particulates. Second, the fuel cell system offers the potential for approximately 30% higher well-to-wheel energy efﬁciency.
Most research in robotics centers on the control and equations of motion for
multiple link and multiple degree-of-freedom armed, legged, or propelled systems. A
great amount of effort is expended to plot exacting paths for systems built from
commercially available motors and motor controllers. Deficiencies in component and
subsystem performance are often undetected until the device is well past the initial design

In the nearly 15 years that we’ve written about Web design, we’ve seen many changes — from the early days when you could create only simple pages with HTML 1.0, to the elaborate interactive designs you can create today.
Recent advances in clinical proteomics have propelled us into an exciting period of discovery of
new cancer biomarkers, although the available proteomic technologies have their limitations. The
principles of proteomic technology require stringent guidelines for the collection of clinical material,
the application of analytical techniques, and for our interpretation of the data.
In this review, we present an overview of the serum tumor markers in current use.
Rawson and Tupper's Basic Ship Theory, first published in 1968, is widely known as the standard introductory text for naval architecture students, as well as being a useful reference for the more experienced designer. The fifth edition continues to provide a balance between theory and practice. Basic Ship Theory is an essential tool for undergraduates and national vocational students of naval architecture, maritime studies, ocean and offshore engineering, and this combined hardback version will be of great assistance to practising marine engineers and naval architects.c...
The concept of switched reluctance machines (SRMs) was established as early in 1838 by Davidson and was used to propel a locomotive on the Glasgow–Edinburgh railway near Falkirk . However, the full potential of the motor could not be utilized with the mechanical switches available in those days. The advent of fast-acting power semiconductor switches revived the interest in SRMs in the 1970s when Professor Lawrenson’s group established the
