Friction Surface Phenomena by George P. Shpenkov (Eds.)

By George P. Shpenkov (Eds.)

This monograph summarizes result of study in a few floor phenomena, saw in mechanical remedy and friction. particularly, the e-book is dedicated to pressing difficulties of the technological know-how of friction and put on and offers perception into the mechanism of the phenomena that reason, at the one hand, anomalously low coefficients of friction and put on (the so-called selective move) and at the different, dramatic damages of the outside layers in the course of sliding (hydrogen put on of metals). the character of steel interplay in the course of sliding in selective move and hydrogen put on modes is analyzed intimately. moreover result of experiences focused on definite points of phenomena showing within the strategy of influencing contacting surfaces and with detecting the connection among the saw features and behavior of investigated fabrics within the means of mechanical therapy and friction are provided. the main is to mix various experimental evidence, actual techniques and research tools, which firstly sight seem to be unrelated, and utilizing this method of make certain basic ideas. bankruptcy One presents the reader with a common realizing of primary floor phenomena which supply the historical past to their dynamic interplay in mechanical therapy and less than friction. bankruptcy offers with the legislation governing effect of mechanical results at the floor. The 3rd bankruptcy provides the basics of the selective move concept lower than friction. different chapters care for the chances of the Mossbauer electron spectroscopy approach, familiar in physics for fixing tribology difficulties, the effect of exterior electromotive strength resources on touch resistance and friction pairs' put on, and hydrogen put on of metals lower than friction.

The God In The Clear Rock (The Ancients of Earth) by Lucian Randolph

By Lucian Randolph

THE GOD within the transparent ROCK weaves background, technological know-how, and high-technology right into a universe that’s as genuine and well timed because the state-of-the-art smooth expertise utilized by the characters. enticing, resourceful, and plausible fiction wrapped inside of challenging technological know-how could have the sci-fi reader thinking about the place the road among truth and fiction lies. the 1st quantity in an epic sequence, THE GOD within the transparent ROCK is stuffed with event, secret, tragedy, horror and intrigue – plus an finishing that would go away science-fiction and event lovers either watching for the sequel. Time is operating out on smooth guy. Like a celestial alarm clock, the sunlight is set to go into a cycle of storms that would decimate existence on this planet Earth. The motion covers simply over eight hours – yet 78,000 years of tragic human heritage lead as much as those eight hours. fast paced writing seamlessly jumps around the millennia because the secret of The God within the transparent Rock deepens. Coming jointly over the years, unforgettable characters and epic occasions during the background of guy unknowingly countdown in a race opposed to destiny. Amid this forthcoming disaster is The God within the transparent Rock... who holds a mystery.
