Silk: Trade & Exchange along the Silk Roads between Rome and by Berit Hildebrandt

By Berit Hildebrandt

"Already in Greek and Roman antiquity a colourful sequence of alternate relationships existed among the Mediterranean areas and China, together with the Indian subcontinents alongside well-defined routes we name the Silk Roads. one of many items that came upon their method from East to West and vice versa have been glass, wine, spices, metals like iron, useful stones in addition to fabric uncooked fabrics and materials and silk, a luxurious merchandise that used to be in nice call for within the Roman Empire.

These accumulated papers attach study from diversified parts and disciplines facing trade alongside the Silk Roads. those historic, philological and archaeological contributions spotlight silk as a commodity, reward and tribute, and as a standing image in various cultural and chronological contexts among East and West, together with technological points of silk creation. the most interval matters Rome and China in antiquity, finishing within the past due 5th century CE, with the Roman Empire being remodeled into the Byzantine Empire, whereas the chinese language chronology covers the Han dynasty, the 3 Kingdoms, the Western and japanese Jin and 16 Kingdoms, finishing in 420 CE. moreover, either prior and later epochs also are thought of which will assemble an realizing of advancements and alterations in long-distance and longer-term family members that concerned silk."

Prediction of Polymeric Membrane Separation and Purification by Alexander Anim-Mensah,Rakesh Govind

By Alexander Anim-Mensah,Rakesh Govind

This short describes the advance of a brand new version for realistically characterizing solution-diffusion shipping mechanisms in polymeric membranes which are used for separation and purification of natural solvents. Polymeric membranes utilized in those environments, if no longer chosen effectively, endure over the top swelling and compaction leading to reduced functionality or membrane destruction within the long term. This short describes the connection among key parameters from a chemical, mechanical and thermodynamic viewpoint. furthermore, the authors express how this new version issues membrane brands, scientists, and engineers in the direction of an knowing of the way those key parameters are thought of in (1) designing and production membranes for the perfect software, (2) designing the ideal try experiments to figure out the long term membrane habit very quickly, (3) minimizing the variety of experiments to figure out a competent membrane for an program and (4) selecting the best membrane with better point of sure bet. the final advantages of the version contains saving time and money. A simplified model of the version is integrated to aid the reader.

Aqueous Lubrication:Natural and Biomimetic Approaches: 3 by Nicholas D Spencer

By Nicholas D Spencer

Man lubricates quite often with oil. Nature lubricates completely with water. natural water is a bad lubricant, however the addition of proteins, specially glycoproteins, can adjust surfaces to cause them to way more lubricating at sluggish speeds. realizing how nature does this, and the actual buildings concerned, is not just very important for the certainty of illnesses akin to osteoarthritis, but additionally crucial for the winning software of articulating implants, similar to hips and knees, in addition to the improvement of scientific units reminiscent of catheters and get in touch with lenses. a number of significant functions of water-based lubrication are already in position within the own care and meals industries, and additional business functions of water-based lubrication can have an important confident impression at the environment.

This publication is the 1st of its variety. It brings jointly the newest learn in organic and biomimetic, water-based lubrication and is authored by way of the world's specialists within the field.


  • Tribology of usual Articular Joints (Rowena Crockett)
  • Sticky and Slippery: Interfacial Forces of Mucin and Mucus Gels (Seunghwan Lee)
  • Aqueous Lubrication and meals Emulsions (Jason R Stokes)
  • Aqueous Lubrication in Cosmetics (Gustavo S Luengo, Anthony Galliano and Claude Dubief)
  • Hydrogel Friction and Lubrication (Jian Liu and Jian Ping Gong)

Plastics Fundamentals, Properties, and Testing (Plastics by Manas Chanda,Salil K. Roy

By Manas Chanda,Salil K. Roy

Derived from the fourth variation of the well known Plastics know-how Handbook, Plastics basics, homes, and Testing covers the habit, characterization, and overview of polymers. With a lucid process and wealth of necessary info, this quantity seems on the outstanding versatility of this nonmetallic classification of fabrics.

Examining polymers on the molecular point, the publication first discusses their inherent homes and the way their end-use homes may be prompted via adjustments within the molecular structure or incorporation of assorted fillers and ingredients. The authors coherently current a large spectrum of subject matters through sequentially introducing structural features, homes, and functions. They then continue to discover the mechanical, electric, optical, and thermal homes of polymers, delivering theoretical derivations the place valuable in addition to reasons on molecular and structural gains. to spot the rules concerned, the e-book additionally furnishes the bases of many ordinary try out tools in keeping with ASTM and BS 2782 specifications.
