Alternative Evaluation of the grindability of Pozzolanic Materials for Cement Production
(IOP Publishing, 2017-10-25)
All conventional methods for the evaluation of grindability require a specific grinding instrument. These grinding instruments do not have any other practical use and thus are not very common. This paper focuses on the ...
Discussion on the Safety Factors of Slopes Recommended for Small Dams
(Mendel University Press, 2017-03-06)
The design and assessment of the slope stability of small embankment dams is usually not carried out using slope stability calculations but rather by the comparison of proposed or existing dam slopes with those recommended ...
Fire resistance of large-scale cross-laminated timber panels
(IOP Publishing, 2017-12-21)
Wooden structures are increasingly being used in the construction of residential buildings. A common and often published reason to avoid wooden structures is their insufficient fire resistance, which reduces bearing capacity. ...
BIM integration in education: A case study of the construction technology project Bolt Tower Dolni Vitkovice
(Technická Univerzita v Košiciach, 2017-12-29)
Building information modeling (BIM) can support effectiveness during many activities in the AEC industry. even when processing a construction-technological project. This paper presents a approach how to use building ...
Reported Hydration Beliefs and Behaviors without Effect on Plasma Sodium in Endurance Athletes
In summary, hydration beliefs and behaviours in the endurance athletes do not appear to affect the development of EAH.
Measurement of an electronic cigarette aerosol size distribution during a puff
(EDP SCIENCES, 2017-05-12)
Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) have become very popular recently because they are marketed as a healthier alternative to tobacco smoking and as a useful tool to smoking cessation. E-cigarettes use a heating element ...
A Proposal for Simultaneous Training of Reading and Writing Skills Based on a Case of Doctoral Engineering Students
Writing academic papers is an essential skill that all doctoral students must acquire as from the very beginning of their studies they are required to publish the results of their research in English. For the last four ...
Plasmonic Enhancement and Polarization Dependence of Nonlinear Upconversion Emissions from Single Gold Nanorod@SiO2@CaF2:Yb3+,Er3+ Hybrid Core-Shell-Satellite Nanostructures
(Springer Nature, 2017-05-19)
Lanthanide-doped upconversion nanocrystals (UCNCs) have recently become an attractive nonlinear fluorescence material for use in bioimaging because of their tunable spectral characteristics and exceptional photostability. ...
The Effect of the Free Surface on the Singular Stress Field at the Fatigue Crack Front
(De Gruyter Open, 2017-11-22)
Description of stress singularity in the vicinity of a free surface is presented. Its presence causes the retardation of the fatigue crack growth in that region and fatigue crack is being curved. Numerical model is used ...
Rupture Strength and Irregularity of Fracture Surfaces
(IOP Publishing, 2017-11-28)
Textural irregularities of fracture surfaces of cement-based materials seem to be an interesting source of information on some mechanical properties. Besides compressive strength, the flexural strength is strongly correlated ...
