Document Processing and Retrieval: Texpros

Record Processing and Retrieval: TEXPROS specializes in the layout and implementation of a private, customizable workplace info and rfile processing procedure referred to as TEXPROS (a textual content PROcessing System). TEXPROS is a private, clever place of work info and record processing approach for text-oriented records.

Anisotropy Effects in Superconductors

Contemplating the big development accomplished in a few designated parts of superconductivity over the last few years, it appeared necessary to debate completely an issue, which has encountered critical seasoned­ blems at the theoretical and the experimental part, particularly the consequences of the anisotropic electron and phonon houses of (single crystalline) fabrics at the attribute good points of the large­ carrying out country.

Sample text

This later method is not intended as an alternative test for concrete cylinders, and the test values obtained by the two test methods are not interchangeable and not necessarily comparable. The compressive strength of mortar is determined on 2" x 2" X 2" cubes in accordance with ASTM ClO9 [5] . COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH The compressive strength of concrete and lor mortar, in which admixtures or additions are absent, is a function of the following variables: • Water-cement ratio, which is the ratio of the amount of water, exclusive of that absorbed by the aggregates, to the amount of cement, by weight, and is frequently expressed as W IC .

This is not to be confused with the term, addition, which is either interground with or blended into a portland cement during its manufacture. An addition, is classified as being either (1) a processing addition, which aids in the manufacture and handling of the finished product, or (2) a functional addition which modifies the use properties of the cement. Admixtures can function by several mechanisms. 1. Dispersion of the cement in the aqueous phase of concrete. 2. Alteration of the normal rate of hydration of the cement, in particular the tricalcium silicate phase.
