Technology of Dispersed Systems and Materials: by Naum B. Uriev

By Naum B. Uriev

Written by means of the founding father of the sphere, this practice-oriented consultant summarizes the author's leap forward study effects and their purposes in chemical technology.
The ebook adopts a wholly novel technique, describing the actual chemistry of constitution formation and fabrics synthesis lower than dynamic stipulations. It starts by means of constructing the final conception within the first chapters with as little arithmetic as beneficial and substantiated via experimental ends up in every one case. the subsequent chapters care for the basic points of rheology, vibrorheology, and superfluidity of established dispersed platforms in the framework of physicochemical dynamics, whereas the ultimate bankruptcy exemplifies the technological purposes of the built method utilizing real-life difficulties of fabrics technology and chemical engineering.
The authoritative advisor to physicochemical dynamics.

Proceedings: New Technology for Ground Control in by Ph.D., P.E., and Robert J. Tuchman Christopher Mark

By Ph.D., P.E., and Robert J. Tuchman Christopher Mark

Compiled by means of the U.S. Dept of overall healthiness and Human prone, CDC/NIOSH workplace of Mine safeguard and overall healthiness learn, those 2007 court cases specialize in multiple-seam mining examine. Multiple-seam interactions are a huge floor regulate threat in lots of U.S. underground coal mines. the results of multiple-seam interactions can comprise roof falls, rib spalling, and flooring heave and will heavily disrupt mining operations and threaten the security of miners. The nationwide Institute for Occupational safeguard and future health carried out examine to advance higher options for predicting the site and severity of multiple-seam interactions. The examine interested by the 2 most typical sorts of multiple-seam interactions, undermining, the place tension concentrations brought on by past complete extraction in an overlying seam is the most challenge; and overmining, the place past complete extraction in an underlying seam may end up in pressure concentrations and rock harm from subsidence. crucial results of the examine is an equation that predicts the serious thickness of the interburden required to lessen the chance of a multiple-seam interplay.
