Multiscale and Multiphysics Processes in Geomechanics: by Amy L. Rechenmacher, Sara Abedi, Igor Faoro (auth.), Ronaldo

By Amy L. Rechenmacher, Sara Abedi, Igor Faoro (auth.), Ronaldo I. Borja (eds.)

Following the winning overseas Workshop on glossy traits in Geomechanics held in Vienna in 2005, Stanford collage hosted its sequel in 2010 lower than the topic Multiscale and Multiphysics procedures in Geomechanics. This publication is a compilation of the prolonged abstracts from the Stanford workshop and highlights the various and complicated approaches encountered in geomechanics by way of scale (from nanometer to kilometer) and medical scope. issues lined during this ebook comprise coupled physics phenomena similar to thermo-poro-mechanical and electro-poro-mechanical approaches, chemical species reactivity and shipping, pressure localization phenomena, unsaturated soils, fluid circulation in porous solids, and dynamics of fault zones. The publication additionally covers contributions facing the improvement of multiscale numerical thoughts, in addition to the laboratory and box research equipment helping those numerical techniques.

The Fame of Gawa: A Symbolic Study of Value Transformation by Nancy D. Munn

By Nancy D. Munn

This new version of the seriously acclaimed the celebrity of Gawa—originally released in 1986—makes on hand for the 1st time this significant paintings in paperback. the celebrity of Gawa is worried with primary practices of price construction on Gawa, a small island off the southeast coast of mainland Papua New Guinea, the population of which perform the long-distance kula shell alternate ring. Integrating a number of elements of the learn of society and culture--including the sociocultural development of area and time, self-other relatives and the physique, and ethical and political difficulties of hierarchy and equality—Nancy D. Munn indicates that it truly is via reaching status within the wider inter-island global that the Gawan neighborhood asserts its personal inner viablity.

By Rhonda K. Yantiss MD (auth.), Rhonda K. Yantiss (eds.)

The Frozen part Library sequence offers concise, undemanding, web site particular handbooks which are good illustrated and spotlight the pitfalls, artifacts and differential prognosis concerns that come up within the moved quickly frozen part situation.

Frozen part Library: Liver, Extrahepatic Biliary Tree and Gallbladder offers a handy reference to be used in the course of intraoperative session. the quantity addresses often encountered demanding situations, corresponding to the prognosis of basic and secondary hepatic neoplasms and overview of gross abnormalities of the gallbladder. The review of frozen part biopsies for liver transplantation, a tough and more and more encountered scenario, is designated within the kind of histologic standards that are meant to be suggested. Emphasis is put on the differential diagnoses of gross and microscopic findings with cognizance to capability pitfalls and artifacts encountered on frozen part. gross and microscopic photos are supplied in addition to common tables for speedy reference.

Nanopores: Sensing and Fundamental Biological Interactions by Bala Murali Venkatesan, Rashid Bashir (auth.), Samir M.

By Bala Murali Venkatesan, Rashid Bashir (auth.), Samir M. Iqbal, Rashid Bashir (eds.)

Nanopores: Sensing and primary organic Interactions examines the rising examine instructions surrounding nanopores similar to genome sequencing and early disorder detection utilizing biomarker identity. Nanopores are nanometer scale holes shaped certainly by means of proteins or cells, and will be used for quite a few purposes, together with sequencing DNA and detecting destructive chemical compounds comparable to anthrax. they are often built-in into artificially built encapsulated cells of silicon wafers whereas permitting small molecules like oxygen, glucose and insulin to move. This e-book additionally:

  • Discusses organic nanopores and solid-state nanopores
  • Examines contemporary paintings on organic and artificial nanopores
  • Compares substitute techniques to nanopores together with polymers, tactics and protocols

Covering the purposes of nanopores in genetics, proteomics, drug discovery, early affliction detection and detection of rising environmental threats, Nanopores: Sensing and primary organic Interactions is a must have ebook for biomedicalengineers and study scientists.
