Analiza Eliciilor

Analysis of Propellers Glauert Blade Element Theory A relatively simple method of predicting the performance of a propeller (as well as fans or windmills) is the use of Blade Element Theory. In this method the propeller is divided into a number of independent sections along the length. At each section a force balance is applied involving 2D section lift and drag with the thrust and torque produced by the section. At the same time a balance of axial and angular momentum is applied. This produces a set of non-linear equations that can be solved by iteration for each blade section. The resul... vezi detalii

Frankenstein

Frankenstein, speaking of himself as a young man in his father's home, points out that he is unlike Elizabeth, who would rather follow "the aerial creations of the poets". Instead he pursues knowledge of the "world" though investigation. As the novel progresses, it becomes clear that the meaning of the word "world" is for Frankenstein, very much biased or limited. He thirsts for knowledge of the tangible world and if he perceives an idea to be as yet unrealised in the material world, he then attempts to work on the idea in order to give it, as it were, a worldl... vezi detalii

Julius Caesar

In 1598, Francis Meres described Shakespeare as the most excellent in both sides - comedy and tragedy. His comedies are unsurpassed for the marvellous harmony they establish among so many apparently discordant elements. His tragedies, rightly interpreted, do not reveal a spirit of gloom and disillusionment. Yet, if we ponder carefully, while the themes of Shakespeare s tragedies are indeed dark and dismal, the message that they impart is that, no matter how deep the misfortune or how dreary the circumstances, man is capable of rising from his own ashes, like Phoenix; think of Richard II, He... vezi detalii

Philosophical Consideration On The Human Cognitive Aging

Life implies time. The biotime of a human being has two main components: the development-time and the aging-time. Life is temporal. Thus, there is a succesion of changes from birth until to death, in the case of human being. Here, I want to appreciate, again, some of the main causes and conditions on which aging depends. Aging is a process, but is a process that affects either an unicellular or a multicellular object. That is why, aging have to be a process that affects the cells. The cells are micro-objects of which functional characteristics depend on their compositional and structural ... vezi detalii
