New perspectives on old texts: proceedings of the Tenth International Symposium of the Orion Center for the Study of the Dead Sea Scrolls and Associated Literature, 9-11January, 2005 (Studies on the texts of the Desert of Judah; Vol. 88)

This quantity offers new views at the old texts stumbled on at Qumran. The essays supply clean insights into specific texts and genres, via making use of equipment and constructs drawn from different disciplines to the examine of the useless Sea Scrolls, and by means of exploring new in addition to long-standing concerns raised by means of those works.

Progress in Cryptology - AFRICACRYPT 2012: 5th International Conference on Cryptology in Africa, Ifrance, Morocco, July 10-12, 2012. Proceedings

This e-book constitutes the refereed lawsuits of the fifth overseas convention at the concept and alertness of Cryptographic concepts in Africa, AFRICACRYPT 2011, held in Ifrane, Morocco, in July 2012. The 24 papers provided including abstracts of two invited talks have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from fifty six submissions.

Algorithmic Game Theory: 6th International Symposium, SAGT 2013, Aachen, Germany, October 21-23, 2013. Proceedings

This publication constitutes the lawsuits of the sixth overseas Symposium on Algorithmic online game thought, SAGT 2013, held in Aachen, Germany, in October 2013. The 25 papers provided during this quantity have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from sixty five submissions. They hide a number of vital elements of algorithmic video game concept, resembling resolution recommendations in online game conception, potency of equilibria and the cost of anarchy, computational elements of equilibria and online game theoretical measures, repeated video games and convergence of dynamics, evolution and studying in video games, coordination and collective motion, community video games and graph-theoretic features of social networks, balloting and social selection, in addition to algorithmic mechanism layout.

Example text

But this could be partially explained when the high chloride contents were found. NDT was useful to establish the extent of damage and with laboratory results helping to estimate the complexity of the rehabilitation required. The proposed repair procedures can be a guide to the contractor, who must decide the sequence for works considering structural safety as well as environmental restrictions. The contractor will also design the cathodic protection system in accordance to the patching and sealing procedure, as well as the location of the power lines towers foundations.

Later, in March 2011, the second attempt was done. This time, 2 systems, GECOR 6 and GECOR 8 were used. Improvements were tried for preparing bars, basically an exhaustive cleaning: including sanding, brushing, applying phosphoric acid (1:3), and washing with freshwater. Also, special attention was given to keeping the concrete humid as well as the sponge (contact between the concrete surface and the sensors). Measurements were done on rebars and on stirrups. Figure 6 illustrates the measurement process.

The results presented a lower risk of corrosion on stirrups than on rebars. 2 Core and concrete powder sampling Concrete coring was done on representative beams, piers (Fig. 8) and heads. This allowed us to verify concrete soundness below the surface of the structures and to obtain some information about the concrete such as the maximum size aggregate (msa) of 25 mm and particle size distribution, which was adequate, as well as mechanical properties when tested in laboratory. The core holes were refilled with commercial grout (Sikagrout).
