Physics of Magnetic Nanostructures

2de51807e7c907ac0Physics of Magnetic Nanostructures by Frank J. Owens
2015 | English | 192 pages | ISBN: 1118639960 | PDF | 11 MB

A comprehensive coverage of the physical properties and real-world applications of magnetic nanostructures

This book discusses how the important properties of materials such as the cohesive energy, and the electronic and vibrational structures are affected when materials have at least one length in the nanometer range. The author uses relatively simple models of the solid state to explain why these changes in the size and dimension in the nanometer regime occur.


The Power of Japanese Candlestick Charts

a6baf6cj84f40c2The Power of Japanese Candlestick Charts: Advanced Filtering Techniques for Trading Stocks, Futures and Forex by Fred K. H. Tam
2015 | English | 368 pages | ISBN: 1118732928 | PDF | 79 MB

Soil Liquefaction during Recent Large-Scale Earthquakes

y767vfdg765fr480264Soil Liquefaction during Recent Large-Scale Earthquakes by Rolando P. Orense, Ikuo Towhata and Nawawi Chouw
2014 | English | 280 Pages | ISBN: 1138026433 | PDF | 13.7 MB

Soil Liquefaction during Recent Large-Scale Earthquakes contains selected papers presented at the New Zealand – Japan Workshop on Soil Liquefaction during Recent Large-Scale Earthquakes (Auckland, New Zealand, 2-3 December 2013).

The 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes in New Zealand and the 2011 off the Pacific Coast of Tohoku Earthquake in Japan have caused significant damage to many residential houses due to varying degrees of soil liquefaction over a very wide extent of urban areas unseen in past destructive earthquakes. While soil liquefaction occurred in naturally-sedimented soil formations in Christchurch, most of the areas which liquefied in Tokyo Bay area were reclaimed soil and artificial fill deposits, thus providing researchers with a wide range of soil deposits to characterize soil and site response to large-scale earthquake shaking.
