Grinling Gibbons and the Art of Carving

Год: 2013
Автор: David Esterly
Издательство: Victoria & Albert Museum
Описание:
Grinling Gibbons, the greatest of decorative woodcarvers, is seen here through the eyes of a fellow carver, American artist David Esterly. Gibbons’s flamboyant cascades of lifelike blossoms, fruits, foliage, birds, and fish dominated English interiors of the late 17th century, in palaces, churches, and great country houses. Esterly’s own experience in limewood foliage carving gives him unprecedented insight into Gibbons’s methods. Unique photographs illustrate techniques, while spectacular interior shots show the carvings in their original settings.

The Chemistry of Nitrogen Donor Synthetic Macrocyclic Complexes

Год: 2013
Автор: Syed Sauban Ghani
Издательство: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing
Описание:
The book provides a comprehensive method for the synthesis and characterization of tetraaza and hexa aza macrocyclic complexes bearing nitrogen as donor or biting centers. Its contents are written clearly and are easily accessible by anyone, from the beginner to the seasoned veteran. Accompanied by necessary Schemes and Tables, it can be a valuable and authoritative source of information for the researchers. This book builds a solid foundation in the general principles of synthesis of macrocyclic complexes and proceeds to a thorough characterization of the synthesized complexes using sophisticated instruments.

Electrodeposition of Zinc and Zinc-Nickel from Bromide Electrolytes

Год: 2012

Описание:
A discussion of basic aspects of electrodeposition like metal deposition from simple salts, from solutions of complex salts, principle of alloy deposition and electrochemical corrosion is given in chapter I. Bath optimization and effect of addition agents by Hull cell method and deposits characterization is given in the following two chapters. Presence of poly ethylene glycol in the zinc bath produced semi bright milky deposits with high cathode current efficiency and throwing power. The corrosion resistance is evaluated by potentiometric method and neutral salt spray methods. Читать далее «Electrodeposition of Zinc and Zinc-Nickel from Bromide Electrolytes»

Bilingual Education in Burkina Faso

Год: 2011
Автор: Niamboue A. Bado
Издательство: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing
Описание:
More than fifty years after gaining independence from former colonial powers, many African countries are still clinging to the colonial language as the sole medium of instruction in school. That situation is not without consequences for the academic performance of school children. Many African children repeat grades or dropout of school because they do not understand the curriculum which is taught in a foreign language. The present book draws insights from quantitative and qualitative data collected in Burkina Faso to make a case for the implementation of bilingual education that incorporates both the childs native language and French.

Tensile Behavior of Reactive Powder Concrete

Описание:
Reactive Powder Concrete (RPC) is a new generation of Ultra High Performance Concrete, which provides a combination of ductility, durability and high strength. RPC is a fiber reinforced, superplasticized, silica fume – cement system with improved homogeneity because ordinary coarse aggregate are replaced by very fine quartz sand (0.15-0.6mm). One of the primary benefits of RPC is that it can exhibit significant tensile strength and toughness. RPC requires mechanical models capable of taking tensile behavior into account for structural application to enable the material to be fully exploited. This study involves experimental and theoretical contribution to the understanding of the tensile and bending behavior of RPC. Some mechanical properties of RPC which are particularly required as input data for structural design were investigated. Читать далее «Tensile Behavior of Reactive Powder Concrete»

Injection Moulding of Acrylic Torus

Описание:
Over the years energy efficiency is drawing much attention towards sustainable solutions. In 2007-2008, the Centre for Manufacture of The University of Manchester and NEPPCO UK Ltd. suggested that the Manchester airport could replace high power lamps with efficient light sources in order to cut down the energy usage. This book provides a solution to the airport authorities for replacing high power lamp sources by describing the practical and experimental work. It is based on a manufacturing of a light source by Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) polymer which is also known as acrylic. The good optical properties of acrylic have made it suitable for use it as a waveguide for High Brightness Light Emitting Diodes (HBLEDs). Читать далее «Injection Moulding of Acrylic Torus»

Алиса в Стране Чудес. Алиса в Зазеркалье

Год: 2012
Автор: Льюис Кэрролл
Издательство: Азбука, Азбука-Аттикус
Описание:
Две небольшие книги Льюиса Кэрролла Алиса в Стране Чудес и Алиса в Зазеркалье давно стали классикой английской и мировой литературы и принесли ему гораздо большую популярность, чем ученые труды. В XX веке герои Кэрролла заговорили едва ли не на всех языках мира, ожили в спектаклях, мюзиклах, мультфильмах вплоть до недавней экранизации Тима Бертона. О них написаны горы книг, в которых Алису на все лады растолковывают и объясняют. Читать далее «Алиса в Стране Чудес. Алиса в Зазеркалье»
