Prophet Elijah in the Development of Judaism (Littman Library of Jewish Civilization)

This in-depth mental examine exhibits how similar to Elijah embodied the hopes of the Jewish humans via historical past, and likewise throws mild at the Elijah determine in Christianity and Islam.

Silos: Fundamentals of theory, behaviour and design

Bringing jointly the prime ecu services in behaviour and layout of silos, this crucial new ebook is a necessary reference resource for all involved in present difficulties and advancements in silo know-how. Silos are utilized in an important variety of industries and the dealing with features of many commercial fabrics require varied methods for profitable, inexpensive installations.

Sustainability of Construction Materials (Woodhead Publishing in Materials)

Until eventually lately, the improvement of establishing fabrics has occupied with generating more affordable and harder building fabrics. Now extra awareness is given to the environmental matters. Sustainability of building fabrics brings jointly a wealth of modern examine at the topic. It offers a finished and specific research of the sustainability of those fabrics: aggregates, wooden, bamboo, vegetable fibers, masonry, cement, concrete and cement substitute fabrics, metals and alloys, glass, and engineered wooden items.

Sample text

In summary, amphiphilic tape-forming peptides containing positively charged side chains are found to undergo major charges as a function of pD (2–14) and salt concentration, depending on the deprotonation state of the side chains. In the absence of added salt, a sharp transition at 8 < pD < 10 is observed from gels with antiparallel b-sheet structure at pD > 10 to fluid solutions with monomeric random coil peptides at pD < 8. In the presence of 130 mM NaCl, the transition shifts to lower pD by 2–3 pD units.
