Through the experience of cooking and dining in her home you will get to discover everything you've always wanted to know about Australia's culture and cuisine!Notes: Tonya can offer vegetarian, low-carb and gluten free meals on request. A glass of wine is included in your experience cost.
High performance, micro-g resolution, small size, low cost, low power accelerometers are needed in many applications such as inertial navigation, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), and GPS augmentation. Several sensing methods have been used, including piezoresistive/electric, resonant, tunneling, and capacitive techniques. Capacitive sensing has several advantages in terms of high sensitivity, stable DC-characteristics, low power dissipation, low temperature sensitivity, and low noise floor. This research work demonstrates full functionality of high- sensitivity, low-noise capacitive multi-axis accelerometers. In order to achieve micro-g resolution, two different structures have been utilized: a Silicon-On-Glass (SOG) accelerometer, and an all-silicon accelerometer. A monolithic fabrication technique for Post-CMOS MEMS is also developed. Finally, a 3-axis single-chip accelerometer is presented. The 3-axis accelerometer shows 3pF/g sensitivity and sub- g/rtHz mechanical noise floor. The 3-axis accelerometer with the readout circuit provides noise floor of 1.6 g/rtHz and 1.1 g/rtHz for in-plane and out-of- plane devices, respectively.
Natural fibers and their composites have a momentous history in the advancement of human civilization. The most primitive example of composite materials comprised straw and mud in the form of bricks for building constructions and the most advanced example is their use on aircrafts in highly demanding environments. The progressive dwindling of fossil fuels, radical rise in petroleum prices, and increasing consumer interest in sustainable green products- have generated considerable interest in the development of composites based on natural fibres as low cost alternatives to glass. Incorporation of natural fibres into polymer matrices can reduce the overall usage of petrochemicals, thereby decreasing the release of sequestered carbon, increasing the use of renewable materials and reducing the ecological impact of petroleum based synthetic materials. This book will be a valuable resource for composites researcher that contains a comprehensive literature review on natural fibre polymer composites and experimental work on hemp fibre treatments, processing and characterization and processing, properties and ageing on hemp/epoxy and hemp/polylactide bicomposites.
The corrosion of steel in concrete has been identified as one of the most important causes of deterioration and structural deficiency. A relatively recent solution, receiving global attention, is the use of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites as a cost effective alternative to traditional construction materials and techniques. The low cost-to-performance advantage of glass fibre reinforced polymers (GFRP) is the driving force behind its world wide use and acceptance. GFRP materials are attributed to being of high strength, light weight, non corrosive and non conductive. Unfortunately, in some special conditions, such as in high alkalinity environment, the long-term performance of the GFRP is still unresolved question. Strength of the glass fibres and resin matrix, the two constituents of the GFRP materials, can decrease when subjected to a wet alkaline environment. This book summarizes the effects of various conditions on the durability of FRP composites for use as internal reinforcement for concrete structures.
Over the last few years, there has been an increase in the use of fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) materials in many areas, mainly due to the superior high-strength properties of these materials and their low weight and corrosion resistance. Among them, glass fiber reinforced composite get popularity due to its inexpensive cost over carbon fiber, stiff, strong, durable, easy to repair, and simple to form. This book, therefore, presents an experimental investigation of buckling load of plywood plates reinforced with glass fiber/epoxy prepreg with various thicknesses. Especially, the buckling load of a plywood plate reinforced with glass fiber prepreg plywood at the lower or upper facing is estimated with various reinforced fiber prepreg thicknesses and compared with the buckling load of unreinforced plywood. Plywood laminated with FRC fabrics provide a superior composite which is light and has significantly improving buckling load characteristics compared to untreated plywood material. This analysis must have shed light on research area which is glass fiber prepreg/epoxy reinforced plywood part, be useful to anyone and professionals who interested in reinforcement, and buckling load
Solar Air Heaters (SAH's) which are being widely used for the purposes of drying and space heating, because of their simplicity and low cost. Numerous SAH devices are designed, developed and used experimentally. Different factors affect the SAH's thermal efficiency .e.g. surface area of the collector, absorbent material, wind speed, glass cover etc. Increasing the absorber plate area will increase the heat transfer rate to the air, but on the other hand it results in the increase of the pressure drop in the collector. This increases the required power consumption which is required to pump the air flow crossing the collector. This project is all about the optimized results of an Analytical and Experimental investigation performance for flat plate SAH with obstacles (Semi annular fins) and without obstacles arrangements. The outlet temperature and pressure drop of SAH which are to be determined by changing the fin densities with the help of CFD software tool FLUENT.The analysis result states that the outlet temperature was maximum and pressure drop was minimum in the case of SAH with obstacles when compared to the SAH without obstacles.
The mixed oxides of Zinc and Tin along with Indium make the transparent conducting films. These are suitable for solar cells and optoelectronic devices. The flash evaporation of mixed oxides is a low cost process. The commercially available Indiun Tin Oxide film ITO coated glass is very expensive. WE have found that ZTO and ZIO are good subtitute of ITO. This is a laboratory scale effort and good prospects for its scale up.
