Flight Technology and Metaphysics
31,90 CHF *

This book is about the ways in which the development of technology impacts and is impacted by metaphysics - by abstract ideological currents and undercurrents that populate the environment in which the technology develops. The emphasis here is on the history of flight, both atmospheric flight and space flight. Much has been written and said about the interaction between the development of science (rather than technology) and ideology, or 'metaphysics.' Examples include the development of astronomy and geography, in terms of how these have been impacted by prevailing theories about the structure of the Solar System and Earth's status in it. Another example is represented by the diverging theories of evolution, which have deeply impacted biology, environmental sciences, and more. Both of the above ideological/scientific divergences were of course deeply anchored in religious beliefs and impacted them. In order to expand the same argument regarding the interface between science and metaphysics, and also apply it to the technology/metaphysics domain, we delve into the differences between science and technology. The bulk of this book centers on aviation and space-flight technologies, and attempts to place those in the context of abstract ideologies and ideas that surrounded their development at the time. Why the choice of those particular technological domains of all the huge variety of technologies that have developed in the last two centuries since the Industrial Revolution? The latter, in a way, served as a starting line for an unfathomable wave of technological innovation and merging of technology with society in its broadest sense.

Oxydative Ageing of Polymers
155,00 CHF *

This book aims to rehabilitate kinetic modeling in the domain of polymer ageing, where it has been almost abandoned by the research community. Kinetic modeling is a key step for lifetime prediction, a crucial problem in many industrial domains in which needs cannot be satisfied by the common empirical methods. The book proposes a renewed approach of lifetime prediction in polymer oxidative ageing. This approach is based on kinetic models built from relatively simple mechanistic schemes but integrating physical processes (oxygen diffusion and stabilizer transport), and use property (for instance mechanical failure) changes. An important chapter is dedicated to radiation-induced oxidation and its most important applications: radiochemical ageing at low dose rates and photo-chemical ageing under solar radiation. There is also a chapter devoted to the problem of ageing under coupled oxidation and mechanical loading.

Filled with lavish illustrations, this book is a grand tour of the universe. Three ever widening domains are presented--the planets, the stars, and the large scale universe itself--each including the ones before it and extending outward. The tour starts close to home within the first domain, our own solar system. There is a tremendous variety here, from the sun scorched rocks of Mercury to the icy vastness of the Kuiper Belt beyond Pluto. We see the sun and planets born from the collapse of an interstellar dust cloud whose atoms were themselves created in long dead stars. Since many of these planets have been visited by space probes or landers, we are able to benefit from the incredible technology of exploration developed by NASA and its counterparts in other countries. The second domain is made up of the billions of stars in our own Milky Way galaxy. We walk in the steps of the American astronomer Edwin Hubble, who first established that the universe is made up of discrete galaxies, then go on to examine the fundamental constituents of those galaxies--the stars. We see stars not as eternal lights in the sky, but as objects born out of a desperate struggle between pressure and gravity. We trace the life cycle of our own sun, from its birth 4.5 billion years ago to its quiet end 6 billion years in the future. We see the galaxy not as a serene and placid place, but as a giant factory, where primordial material is taken up into stars, then returned to the galaxy enriched with the heavy elements necessary for life. Finally, we move to the ultimate domain--the large scale structure of the universe itself in which galaxies are the building blocks. We discover the most amazing fact, that the solid stuff of stars and planets on which we have been concentrating up to this point make up only a few percent of the mass in the universe, with the rest being composed of two mysterious entities called, respectively, dark matter and dark energy. We descend into deep caverns to see scientists trying to detect dark matter as it sweeps by the Earth, and we talk to theorists trying to solve the riddle of dark energy. This quest brings us to the frontier of knowledge, the edge of the unknown. To conclude, two ultimate questions remain: How did the universe begin? How will the universe end? We trace our theories back to the first fraction of a second of the life of the universe and listen to the speculations of cosmologists about how it might all have started.
