Negative Refraction Metamaterials: Fundamental Principles by G. V. Eleftheriades, K. G. Balmain

By G. V. Eleftheriades, K. G. Balmain

Know about the progressive new know-how of negative-refraction metamaterials Negative-Refraction Metamaterials: primary ideas and functions introduces synthetic fabrics that help the weird electromagnetic estate of adverse refraction. Readers will realize a number of sessions of negative-refraction fabrics besides their fascinating, groundbreaking purposes, akin to lenses and antennas, imaging with super-resolution, microwave units, dispersion-compensating interconnects, radar, and safety. The publication starts off with a bankruptcy describing the basics of isotropic metamaterials during which a damaging index of refraction is outlined. within the following chapters, the textual content builds at the basics through describing more than a few worthwhile microwave units and antennas. subsequent, a large spectrum of interesting new learn and rising functions is tested, together with: * idea and experiments in the back of a super-resolving, negative-refractive-index transmission-line lens * 3D transmission-line metamaterials with a detrimental refractive index * Numerical simulation stories of adverse refraction of Gaussian beams and linked focusing phenomena * targeted benefits and concept of formed lenses made from negative-refractive-index metamaterials * a brand new form of transmission-line metamaterial that's anisotropic and helps the formation of sharp steerable beams (resonance cones) * Implementations of negative-refraction metamaterials at optical frequencies * strange propagation phenomena in steel waveguides in part choked with negative-refractive-index metamaterials * Metamaterials within which the refractive index and the underlying workforce pace are either adverse This paintings brings jointly the simplest minds during this state-of-the-art box. it's interesting analyzing for scientists, engineers, and graduate-level scholars in physics, chemistry, fabrics technology, photonics, and electric engineering.

Mysteries and Discoveries of Archaeoastronomy : From by Giulio Magli

By Giulio Magli

The publication is split into elements. within the first, the reader is taken on an incredible ‘world travel’ of many marvelous and enigmatic areas in virtually each continent, looking for strains of astronomical wisdom and lore of the sky. within the moment half, Giulio Magli makes use of the weather offered within the travel to teach that the elemental concept which resulted in the development of the astronomically-related enormous monuments was once the basis of strength, a beginning which was once exploited by means of ‘replicating’ the sky. a potential interpretive version then emerges that's based at the dating the ancients had with “nature”, within the experience of every thing that surrounded them, the cosmos. the varied huge astronomically aligned constructions of the previous then turn into interpretable as acts of will, expressions of energy at the a part of those that held it; the desire to copy the heavenly aircraft right here in the world and to construct sacred landscapes.

Finally, having formulated his speculation, Professor Magli returns to go to one particular position intimately, looking for facts. This in-depth exam reviews the main compelling, the main intensively studied, the main recognized and, till lately, the main misunderstood sacred panorama on the earth - Giza, in Egypt. The archaeoastronomical research of the orientation of the Giza pyramids results in the speculation that the pyramids of Cheops and Chephren belong to an identical development project.

The Finite Element Method in Thermomechanics by Tai-Ran Hsu

By Tai-Ran Hsu

The fast advances within the nuclear and aerospace applied sciences long ago 20 years compounded with the expanding calls for for top functionality, energy-efficient strength plant elements and engines have made trustworthy thermal tension research a serious think about the layout and operation of such apparatus. lately, and as skilled by means of the writer, the necessity for sophis­ ticated analyses has been prolonged to the power source akin to in-situ coal gasification and in-situ oil restoration from oil sands and shales. The analyses within the above purposes are of a multidisciplinary nature, and a few contain the extra complexity of multiphase and section switch phenomena. those super advanced elements restrict using classical equipment, and numerical thoughts reminiscent of the finite aspect procedure seem to be the main attainable replacement answer. the improvement of this system up to now seems to be to have targeted in extremes; one being overly taken with the accuracy of effects and tending to put all attempt within the implementation of certain objective point options and computational algorithms, the opposite being for advertisement reasons with the facility of fixing quite a lot of engineering difficulties. besides the fact that, to be flexible, clients require giant education and adventure with a view to use those codes successfully. notably, no provision for any modifi­ cation of those codes by means of clients is feasible, as these kinds of codes are proprietary and entry to the code is proscribed in basic terms to the owners.
