By D. Chatterji, R. C. DeVries, G. Romeo (auth.), Mars G. Fontana, Roger W. Staehle (eds.)

This sequence used to be equipped to supply a discussion board for evaluation papers within the region of corrosion. the purpose of those experiences is to convey sure parts of corrosion technological know-how and know-how right into a sharp concentration. The volumes of this sequence are released nearly on a every year foundation and every includes 3 to 5 experiences. The articles in every one quantity are chosen in one of these approach as to be of curiosity either to the corrosion scientists and the corrosion technologists. there's, in truth, a selected objective in juxtaposing those pursuits as a result of significance of mutual interplay and interdisciplinarity so very important in corrosion experiences. it really is was hoping that the corrosiori scientists during this approach could remain abreast of the actions in corrosion know-how and vice versa. during this sequence the time period "corrosion" is utilized in its very broadest feel. It comprises, for this reason, not just the degradation of metals in aqueous en­ vironment but in addition what's usually often called "high-temperature oxidation. " extra, the plan is to be much more common than those themes; the sequence will contain all solids and all environments. at the present time, engineering solids contain not just metals yet glasses, ionic solids, polymeric solids, and composites of those. Environments of curiosity has to be prolonged to liquid metals, a wide selection of gases, nonaqueous electrolytes, and different non­ aqueous liquids.

SuperFuel: Thorium, The Green Energy Source for the Future

A riveting examine how an alternate resource of strength is revoluntionising nuclear strength, promising a secure and fresh destiny for hundreds of thousands, and why thorium used to be sidelined on the top of the chilly battle

In this groundbreaking account of an power revolution within the making, award-winning technological know-how author Richard Martin introduces us to thorium, a radioactive point and replacement nuclear gasoline that's a ways more secure, purifier, and extra plentiful than uranium.

At the sunrise of the Atomic Age, thorium and uranium in shut festival because the gasoline of the long run. Uranium, with its skill to suffer fission and bring explosive fabric for atomic guns, gained out over its extra pacific sister point, relegating thorium to the dustbin of technology.

Now, as we grapple with the perils of nuclear strength and rogue atomic guns, and mankind confronts the threat of worldwide weather switch, thorium is re-emerging because the neglected power resource as a small team of activists and outsiders is operating, with assistance from Silicon Valley traders, to construct a thorium-power undefined.

In the 1st ebook mainstream publication to take on those concerns, Superfuel is a narrative of rediscovery of a protracted misplaced know-how that has the facility to remodel the world's destiny, and the tale of the pacifists, who have been sidelined in favour of atomic weapon hawks, yet who can wean us off our fossil-fuel habit and stay away from the danger of nuclear meltdown for ever.

Transcendence: The Disinformation Encyclopedia of Transhumanism and the Singularity

Transhumanism is a world move that advocates using technological know-how and know-how to beat the "natural" boundaries skilled by way of humanity, via such advancements as:

the Singularity—the construction of laptop intelligences that exceed the capacities of our organic brains
the skill to copy person minds and positioned them into solid-state our bodies or digital environments
individual keep an eye on over psychological and emotional states for boosting functionalities and/or ecstasies
Some of this is often occurring now. a few it truly is nonetheless within the minds of dreamers.

In approximately 90 A-Z entries, Transcendence offers a multilayered examine the accelerating advances in man made intelligence, cognitive technological know-how, genomics, info know-how, nanotechnology, neuroscience, area exploration, man made biology, robotics, and digital worlds which are making transhumanism a truth. Entries diversity from Cloning and Cyborg Feminism to dressmaker infants and Memory-Editing medications. moreover, the ebook notes old predecessors and personalities, either in mythology and history—ranging from Timothy Leary to Michael Jackson to Ray Kurzweil. It additionally introduces the tradition round Transhumanism, masking the entire geeky obsessions of the Transhumanist stream.

The Meaning of Science: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Science

Technology has produced motives for every little thing from the mechanisms of insect navigation to the formation of black holes and the workings of black markets. yet how a lot do we belief technology, and will we really comprehend the area via it? How does technological know-how paintings and the way does it fail? and the way can the paintings of scientists help—or hurt—everyday humans?

Progress in Ultrafast Intense Laser Science Volume I

This is often the 1st of a chain of books on Ultrafast excessive Laser technology, a newly rising interdisciplinary study box, spanning atomic and molecular physics, molecular technological know-how, and optical technological know-how. Its development is being prompted through the new improvement of ultrafast laser applied sciences. Highlights of this quantity comprise severe VUV laser--cluster interplay, resonance and chaos-assisted tunneling, and the consequences of the carrier-envelope part on high-order harmonic new release.

One etchant defines the general coating Protection of Superalloys for Turbine Application 33 structure; the P-NiAI phase etches while l' and y phases are unaffected. A second etchant is selective for carbides in the coating and in the base alloy; M6C stains brown, M 23 C 6 varies between green and pale blue tints, and MC is multicolored. Difficulties are sometimes encountered in using extraction and etching techniques to identify unambiguously some phases.
