This book proposes the concept of a multi-layer pavement system to fulfill the blast resistance requirement for pavement design. It also presents a damage pattern chart for multi-layer pavement design and rapid repair after blast load. Such a multi-layer system consists of three layers including asphalt concrete (AC) reinforced with Geogrid (GST) at the top, a high-strength concrete (HSC) layer in the middle, and engineered cementitious composites (ECC) at the bottom. A series of large-scale laboratory impact tests were carried out to prove the usefulness of this concept and show its advantages over other conventional pavement system. Furthermore, field blast tests were conducted to show the actual behavior of this multi-layer pavement system subjected to blast load under real-world conditions.

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Legion of the Damned® Novels and The Mutant Files comes the first novel in a postapocalyptic military science fiction series about America rising from the ashes of a global catastrophe. On May Day 2018, 60 meteors entered Earth´s atmosphere and exploded around the globe with a force greater than a nuclear blast. Earthquakes and tsunamis followed. Then China attacked Europe, Asia, and the United States in the belief the disaster was an act of war. Washington, DC was a casualty of the meteor onslaught that decimated the nation´s leadership and left the surviving elements of the armed forces to try to restore order as American society fell apart. As refugees across America band together and engage in open warfare with the military over scarce resources, a select group of individuals representing the surviving corporate structure makes a power play to rebuild the country in a free-market image as The New Confederacy. 1.

Actually Günther Hacker just intended to buy a small wind turbine for his own home. When this ended up being the wrong purchase, a nearly unbelievable story for Günther Hacker and his friends set in. After three years of flops and strange coincidences they gained success: the first really working small wind turbine for feeding into the grid was born! People who are interested in small wind turbines that recharges batteries or feed the energy directly into the in-house system will not only find an interesting technological story in words and pictures but also an abundance of information on the right choice for modern small wind turbines, technology for feeding the grid, a suitable location, installation and proper operation. The technical part is complemented by a test about 25 small wind turbines from Europe, China and the USA being tested in a blast duct and outdoors. Günther Hacker, teacher by occupation, has quit his former job prematurely to make his hobby of solar and wind energy his profession. His solar-wind-team, which is honoured with four environmental awards, has become famous due to its developments in the area of solar energy and its comprehensive tests of wind turbines for house grid. Günther Hacker, von Beruf Realschullehrer, ist vorzeitig aus dem Schuldienst ausgeschieden, um sein bisheriges Hobby, die Solar- und Windenergie-Technik, professionell betreiben zu können. Er schreibt seit mehreren Jahren Bücher und ist mit seinem Solar-Wind-Team neben den Neuentwicklungen im Solarbereich durch seine umfassenden Tests mit Kleinwindrädern bekannt geworden.

The text is an ideal reference on the topic during a time when iron ore production has increased significantly, driven by increasing demand from countries such as India and China. Provides a comprehensive overview of the global iron ore industry, exploring its characteristics and characterization Expert analysis of quality requirements for iron production, iron ore agglomeration technologies, environmental issues, and low-emission technologies Timely text to accompany the increased iron ore production occurring in developing countries like India and China
The definitive New York Times bestselling account of one of history´s most brutal--and forgotten--massacres In December 1937, one of the most horrific massacres in the long annals of wartime barbarity occurred. The Japanese army swept into the ancient city of Nanking (what was then the capital of China), and within weeks, more than 300,000 Chinese civilians and soldiers were systematically raped, tortured, and murdered-a death toll exceeding that of the atomic blasts of Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. In this seminal work, Iris Chang, whose own grandparents barely escaped the massacre, resurrects this history and tells the story from three perspectives: that of the Japanese soldiers, that of the Chinese, and that of a group of Westerners who refused to abandon the city and created a safety zone, which saved almost 300,000 Chinese. Amazingly, the story of this atrocity--one of the worst in world history--continues to be denied by the Japanese government. More than just narrating the details of an orgy of violence, The Rape of Nanking tells the shocking story of the concerted effort during the Cold War on the part of the West and even China to stifle open discussion of the massacre. Drawing on extensive interviews with survivors and documents brought to light for the first time, Iris Chang´s classic is the definitive history of this horrifying episode.
In this book, the authors present their theoretical, experimental and numerical investigations into concrete structures subjected to projectile and aircraft impacts in recent years. Innovative approaches to analyze the rigid, mass abrasive and eroding projectile penetration and perforation are proposed. Damage and failure analyses of nuclear power plant containments impacted by large commercial aircrafts are numerically and experimentally analyzed. Ultra-high performance concrete materials and structures against the projectile impact are developed and their capacities of resisting projectile impact are evaluated. This book is written for the researchers, engineers and graduate students in the fields of protective structures and terminal ballistics. Dr. Qin FANG is a professor of Civil Engineering at PLA University of Science & Technology, China. His research interests include dynamic responses and reinforcement measures of engineering structures under severe loads, such as blast, impact, fire and earthquake.
