Volume 02.03 focuses on electrical conductors, primarily aluminum, aluminum-alloy, and aluminum-covered steel; copper, copper-alloy, and copper-covered steel; and steel wire. Under the heading of aluminum, various specifications define the required properties for stranded conductors and wire, and many list the requirements for copper or copper-alloy wire and stranded conductors. Other specifications detail the properties of aluminum-clad, copper-clad and core steel wire, as well as guys, messengers, and span wires. Also included are standards on superconductors.
Papers from the June 2001 Symposium on Metrology of Pedestrian Locomotion and Slip Resistance present the latest research findings on both how much friction pedestrians require during ambulation and how to measure the friction available between the walkway surface and the shoe bottom. Some specific
A collection of 16 papers from an international symposium in San Antonio, November 1990, focusing on the necessary coordination between materials scientists, stress analysts, and non-destructive evaluation specialists, for successfully designing, building, certifying, and maintaining composite struc
