F-111 Aardvark by Anthony M. Thornborough

By Anthony M. Thornborough

This is often the tale of the worlds first operational swing-wing bomber. the final Dynamics F111 used to be a far-sighted layout, full of radars and navigational aids to assist pinpoint pursuits in undesirable climate and at evening. Proved over Vietnam, used with nice impression opposed to Libya and excelling within the Gulf conflict, it's going to stay in carrier with the Royal Australian Air strength good into the subsequent century. The authors interviewed many former F111 crews and amassed pictures from world wide to create this heritage of a well-respected and powerful airplane.

Stabilized Earth Roads by A. Kézdi

By A. Kézdi

Advancements in Geotechnical Engineering, quantity 19: Stabilized Earth Roads surveys soil stabilization idea and perform. This paintings is split into 9 chapters that debate the actual, chemical, and soil mechanics ideas of soil stabilization. the 1st bankruptcy is an advent to the historical past, equipment, and value of soil stabilization in street building. the following chapters care for the elemental definitions of soil physics and the interactions of soil elements, in addition to the concept that of mechanical soil stabilization. significant chapters learn soil stabilization with a number of fabrics, resembling cement, lime, bitumen, and tar. The final chapters describe the soil-stabilization equipment with quite a few chemical compounds, together with chlorides, phosphoric acid, and traditional and artificial polymers. those chapters additionally give some thought to the layout of stabilized earth roads. This booklet is of price to geologists and civil engineers.

About The Product

Published via the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.

The winning launchings of high-altitude rockets and synthetic Earth satellites have opened a brand new period within the number of geophysical information. the applying of those new recommendations would require the mixed principles, reviews, and prone of scientists in a wide selection of disciplines. to illustrate, any efforts within the selection of geodetic information will unavoidably draw jointly a number of fields of undertaking open air of geodesy, similar to astronomy, rocketry, and electronics, to call a number of.

In acceptance of this, many American geodesists expected the necessity of a convention on modern Geodesy for the interchange of data and concepts between scientists in definite fields regarding the recent area age. the aim of the sort of convention used to be now not simply to orient different scientists in glossy geodesy, yet simply as importantly to enlighten the geodesist in these sciences required in house software to his challenge.
