The objectives of this investigation were to study the strength and behavior of slowly (statically) loaded reinforced concrete slab-column connections and to determine the effect of rapid (dynamic) loading on the strength and behavior by comparison with the static test results. Nineteen full-scale models of a connection and adjoining slab area, consisting of a simply supported slab 84 or 94 inches square and 6-1/2 inches thick loaded concentrically on a 10- or 20-inch-square stub column at the center of the slab, were tested. The main variables were the amounts of reinforcement in the slab (p = 0.75 and 1.50 percent), the column size, and the loading speed. Eight specimens were loaded to failure statically, two were subjected to a very rapidly applied load of short duration, and nine were loaded to failure by a rapidly applied load with a rise time chosen to represent the conditions in a blast-loaded structure. The static test results are compared with 12 shear strength prediction methods. Differences between the mechanism of shear failure in slabs and beams are examined. (Author).
This paper discusses results of tests conducted to expand the data base on the performance of timber rivet connections in U.S. domestic species to verify existing and proposed design procedures. Eight-, 80-, and 200-rivet connections were tested. The 8-rivet joint tests illustrate the effects of material type, rivet length, and load direction on the behavior of rivet?connections when gross wood failures are avoided. The 80-rivet connections, loaded perpendicular to grain, show the effect of rivet spacing as well as test support conditions on failure mode and strength. The 200-rivet joints, with load applied parallel to grain, provide data for previously reported failure modes, including the rivet yield/wood crush modes modeled by European yield model (EYM) and gross wood failures. The 200-rivet tests also show the effect of rivet spacing on joint strength and failure mode. The tests were conducted in two phases. In Phase I, small?specimens were made from Southern Pine and ponderosa pine solid sawn lumber, Hem-Fir and Southern Pine glulam, and parallel strand lumber. The small specimens failed by a combination of rivet yielding and wood crushing as described by EYM, rather than by a gross failure of the wood block. Joint yield load was determined by fitting test data to a curve and finding the load at 5% offset displacement. Basic trends can be seen in the data, but yield load is a poor predictor of ultimate load. In Phase II, large specimens were made from Southern Pine glulam. Larger rivet spacing, wider specimens, and longer rivets generally increased joint capacity; end spacing had no significant effect. Short continuously supported beams had a higher capacity load than did longer simply supported beams. The results show that when wood failure modes occur, thicker glulam has higher capacity, contradicting the size effect of the design code.
Connections: Four people with nothing in common. A young girl dreams of the fairground; a woman needs to quit smoking and a detective drinks too much as he listens to tales of dead men who walk. Dr Harrison waits in the dark place for a sign. He has little else to do having passed away over thirty years ago. Elsewhere, a hypnotist's light blinks its slow soporific beat in a darkened room off a Kings Cross back street and somewhere, in another world, a dead man shields his eyes from the glare. Connections: A journey that starts with a young girl's dreams and a young woman's hopes and finishes across time and across reality into the very darkest of wastelands. A place where demons walk and the light cannot exist and where a seven-year old girl, dressed only in pyjama's, must stand tall and fight for us all.
The first edition of Connections was chosen by the National Association of Publishers (USA) as the best book in OC Mathematics, Chemistry, and Astronomy OCo Professional and ReferenceOCO in 1991. It has been a comprehensive reference in design science, bringing together in a single volume material from the areas of proportion in architecture and design, tilings and patterns, polyhedra, and symmetry. The book presents both theory and practice and has more than 750 illustrations. It is suitable for research in a variety of fields and as an aid to teaching a course in the mathematics of design. It has been influential in stimulating the burgeoning interest in the relationship between mathematics and design. In the second edition there are five new sections, supplementary, as well as a new preface describing the advances in design science since the publication of the first edition. Contents: Proportion in Architecture; Similarity; The Golden Mean; Graphs; Tilings with Polygons; Two-Dimensional Networks and Lattices; Polyhedra: Platonic Solids; Transformation of the Platonic Solids I; Transformation of the Platonic Solids II; Polyhedra: Space Filling; Isometries and Mirrors; Symmetry of the Plane. Readership: Polytechnic students, architects, designers, mathematicians and general readers."
Are you one of those who says the Bible is boring or you don't understand it? If so, then this book is for you. Biblical stories are like fables and fairy tales, in that they are action stories that leap from one action to another without any long tiresome descriptive paragraphs. Action stories are not only for children, but are also enjoyed by adults of all ages. True, in the Biblical stories, sometimes all we get is the bare outline, which could do with a bit of filling in to bring them into focus. Try following the lives of the Patriarchs and see how human they were, sometimes making wrong choices, sometimes heroic in extreme ... read on ...

In the eleventh and twelfth centuries the Normans had a formative influence on the development of states and societies in the British Isles, southern Italy and the Levant. Their achievements still resonate powerfully today, and represent a vital field of historical study. But how far did colonial elites define themselves as Norman, and to what extent were they categorized as such by others? What were the defining attributes of the supremacies achieved by the Normans, and by other incomers associated with them, and how decisive and diverse was the impact of their influence on local power-structures and native societies? How readily did they reach accommodations with those societies, and how might their own identities be renegotiated within the context of cross-cultural encounters? And, in terms of the progress and practices of state-formation, what was the balance between ’old’ and ’new’? These are some of the key questions addressed in this collection of essays, which also treats the Normans as a genuinely European phenomenon. Norman activity in the British Isles and in the Mediterranean lands receives equal coverage; and the topics explored include identities and identification, marriage policies, acculturation, the pre-existing landscapes of power and how far they were transformed, castle-building strategies, the nature of frontiers, urban government, and law and legislation. This volume therefore serves both to illustrate and to open up for fresh debate many of the salient themes concerning the Norman experience of diaspora and settlement. At the same time, it seeks to underscore how the dynamics, character and consequences of Norman expansion - and the connections, continuities and contrasts - can better be appreciated by taking the wider Norman world, or worlds, as the focus for collective study.
Praise for Interactions I & II: "Practical and lively without neglecting the structure and the writing system. The workbook is especially interesting and helpful." —Chauncey C. Chu, University of Florida "... by far the best first-year textbooks available." —Sabina Knight, Smith College Connections I & II is the second-year sequence to accompany the enormously popular introductory texts Interactions I & II by Margaret Yan and Jennifer Li-chia Liu. This innovative system makes learning Chinese an interactive, cognitive process rather than a matter of simple rote or drill. Connections is designed to offer intermediate learners of Chinese a complete set of learning tools to improve their language skills and enhance their understanding of Chinese culture and society. Lesson topics revolve around everyday themes and real-world communication among four central characters—a mainland Chinese, a Taiwanese, a Chinese American, and a non-Chinese American—familiar to students using Interactions. Each 10-chapter volume is accompanied by a workbook. Chapters include sections on vocabulary, text, mini-dialogue, characters, grammar, and culture notes, accompanied by engaging graphics. Connections also includes stories and songs, and makes use of a wide variety of texts such as narrative, dialogue, journal entries, riddles, jokes, news headlines, and lyrics.
The purpose of this book is to look for a richer means of communication in the classroom than the almost exclusive use of discursive language. It specifically focuses on the teaching of aesthetic appreciations, and offers presentational symbolism as a complement to discursive language. Part I locates some key descriptions and definitions of various kinds of language in the works of Huyghe, Langer, Wheelwright and Denton. It also stresses the limitations of discursive language and then focuses on the inability of discursive language to communicate appreciative feelings. Part II offers a semiological approach to presentational symbolism, studies the key elements of the language of images, treats the relationship between images and discursive language, considers the relationship between music, images and verbal language, and focuses on the correspondences between various art forms.
This book presents the main ideas of General Galois Theory as a generalization of Classical Galois Theory. It sketches the development of Galois connections through the last three centuries. Examples of Galois connections as powerful tools in Category Theory and Universal Algebra are given. Applications of Galois connections in Linguistic and Data Analysis are presented.

Bill Quirke demonstrates practically how businesses can use internal communication to achieve differentiation, to improve their quality, customer service, and innovation, and to manage change more effectively. He describes the why, the what and the how of internal communication - why business needs better communication to achieve its objectives, what internal communication needs to deliver to add value, and how organizations need to manage their communication for best results.
