Modelling of Soil Behaviour with Hypoplasticity: Another Approach to Soil Constitutive Modelling by David Mašín
English | PDF,EPUB | 2019 | 198 Pages | ISBN : 3030039757 | 32.26 MB
This book explains the hypoplastic modelling framework. It is divided into two parts, the first of which is devoted to principles of hypoplasticity. First, the basic features of soil’s mechanical behaviour are introduced, namely non-linearity and asymptotic properties. These features are then incorporated into simple one-dimensional hypoplastic equations for compression and shear. Subsequently, a hypoplastic equivalent of the Modified Cam-Clay model is developed in 2D space using stress and strain invariants to demonstrate key similarities and differences between elasto-plastic and hypoplastic formulations.
Parkettierungen der Ebene: Von Escher über Möbius zu Penrose by Ehrhard Behrends
German | PDF,EPUB | 2019 | 289 Pages | ISBN : 3658232692 | 54.73 MB
Ziel des Buches ist das Studium von Symmetrien und Parkettierungen, die Künstler und Mathematiker schon seit langer Zeit interessieren. Berühmte Beispiele sind die von den Arabern in der Alhambra geschaffenen Werke und die Bilder des holländischen Malers Maurits Escher. Die Mathematiker haben sich erst im 19. Jahrhundert des Themas intensiv angenommen. Dabei führt die Visualisierung der mathematischen Zusammenhänge zu sehr ansprechenden Bildern. Drei Ansätze werden in diesem Buch beschrieben.
Simona Bigerna and Paolo Polinori, “The Economic Valuation of Green Electricity”
English | ISBN: 9402415726 | 2019 | 101 pages | PDF, EPUB | 6 MB
The aim of this book is to analyze the relationship between renewable energy sources and citizens, focusing both on demand and supply. Today, the consequences regarding the use of fossil energy are seen from a different perspective because the issues related to climate change are evident worldwide. Thus, climate change and resource depletion are real problems to be addressed for the welfare of society.
Graphene Network Scaffolded Flexible Electrodes—From Lithium to Sodium Ion Batteries by Dongliang Chao
English | PDF,EPUB | 2019 | 130 Pages | ISBN : 9811330794 | 14.65 MB
Research on deformable and wearable electronics has promoted an increasing demand for next-generation power sources with high energy/power density that are low cost, lightweight, thin and flexible. One key challenge in flexible electrochemical energy storage devices is the development of reliable electrodes using open-framework materials with robust structures and high performance.
