This book is an overview of the strategies to generate high-quality films of one-dimensional semiconductor nanostructures on flexible substrates (e.g., plastics) and the use of them as building blocks to fabricating flexible devices (including electronics, optoelectronics, sensors, power systems). In addition to engineering aspects, the physics and chemistry behind the fabrication and device operation will also be discussed as well. Internationally recognized scientists from academia, national laboratories, and industries, who are the leading researchers in the emerging areas, are contributing exceptional chapters according to their cutting-edge research results and expertise. This book will be an on-time addition to the literature in nanoscience and engineering. It will be suitable for graduate students and researchers as a useful reference to stimulate their research interest as well as facilitate their research in nanoscience and engineering.
Why This Book Is Useful The small boat building industry is still largely an art or craft, comprising many manufacturers of dozens of styles and sizes of boats. The overarching factor in all of their boat designs and features is dependence on the choice of materials and the compromises they engender. This book is arranged in five parts, covering seventy two topics. Woven through these topics are text and problem examples that describe the interaction of mechanics and materials applied specifically to small boats. These topics are intended for those wanting more depth in selected areas along the lines of a primer or to just cherry pick engineering concepts. A typical example is Part ll - Hydrostatics, shown below. Part ll - Hydrostatics 10) Fluid forces, principles and common terms 11) Definitions for fluid dynamics 12) Important relationships and equations 13) Fluid pressure 14) Pressure and Pascals Law 15) Calculate the maximum height of a water column in an evacuated standpipe 16) Calculate the pressure a small boat exerts on the water surface 17) Bad weather 18) Calculate the percent drop in air pressure during an atmospheric low 19) Calculate the wind speed from an atmospheric low 20) Buoyancy 21) Buoyancy using Archimedes Principle 22) Pressure under the boat 23) Swamping over the stern with people on board 24) Center of gravity 25) Capsizing 26) Wave action, capsizing force diagrams 27) Surface tension and wetting angle 28) Capillary force This book is a must for your nautical library, if you are among the millions of people involved with watercraft.

The unique and practical Materials Handbook (third edition) provides quick and easy access to the physical and chemical properties of very many classes of materials. Its coverage has been expanded to include whole new families of materials such as minor metals, ferroalloys, nuclear materials, food, natural oils, fats, resins, and waxes. Many of the existing families-notably the metals, gases, liquids, minerals, rocks, soils, polymers, and fuels-are broadened and refined with new material and up-to-date information. Several of the larger tables of data are expanded and new ones added. Particular emphasis is placed on the properties of common industrial materials in each class. After a chapter introducing some general properties of materials, each of twenty classes of materials receives attention in its own chapter. The health and safety issues connected with the use and handling of industrial materials are included. Detailed appendices provide additional information on subjects as diverse as astronomical data, crystallography, spectroscopy, thermochemical data, analytical chemistry, corrosion resistance, and economic data for industrial and hazardous materials. Specific further reading sections and a general bibliography round out this comprehensive guide. The index and tabular format of the book makes light work of extracting what the reader needs to know from the wealth of factual information within these covers. Dr. Francois Cardarelli has spent many years compiling and editing materials data. His professional expertise and experience combine to make this handbook an indispensable reference tool for scientists and engineers working in numerous fields ranging from chemical to nuclear engineering. Particular emphasis is placed on the properties of common industrial materials in each class. After a chapter introducing some general properties of materials, materials are classified as follows * ferrous metals and their alloys; * ferroalloys; * common nonferrous metals; * less common metals; * minor metals; * semiconductors and superconductors; * magnetic materials; * insulators and dielectrics; * miscellaneous electrical materials; * ceramics, refractories and glasses; * polymers and elastomers; * minerals, ores and gemstones; * rocks and meteorites; * soils and fertilizers; * cements, concrete, building stones and construction materials; * timbers and woods; * fuels, propellants and explosives; * composite materials; * gases; * liquids; * food, oils, resin and waxes; * nuclear materials.
10 Crucial Strategies for Turning Your Online Presence Into Something Your Company Can Actually Use Includes Sales Funnel and Landing Page worksheets. Is your business website really built to generate leads... or is it just an expensive, online version of your company's brochure? The difference isn't just clear and important, it's what separates the companies with successful online marketing efforts from all the others.
