Feinporige Regelstrukturen in Form von Drahtgeweben werden in den unterschiedlichsten Bereichen zur Filtration eingesetzt. Durch die fortschrittliche Herstellung von Drahtgeweben sind geometrisch definierte Filterstrukturen vorhanden, die auch bezüglich der Filtration gut reproduzierbare Eigenschaften aufweisen. Die vielfachen Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten von Gewebestrukturen begründen das große Interesse daran, diese Strukturen mit Hilfe der numerischen Strömungssimulation zu erfassen und zu optimieren. Diese Arbeit zeigt zunächst verschiedene Modellierungsmöglichkeiten zur Simulation von Strömungsvorgängen durch Drahtgewebe auf und bewertet diese. Die "Immersed-BoundaryMethod" weist dabei Vorzüge auf und wird näher untersucht. Die notwendigen mathematischen Formulierungen und die geometrische Handhabung der Gewebestrukturen werden erläutert und ausführlich dargestellt. Neben Verifikationsbeispielen werden Druckverlustund Partikelabscheidesimulationen an gewobenen Drahtstrukturen unter Anwendung der "Immersed-Boundary-Method" vorgestellt und mit Versuchsergebnissen verglichen. Für die ermittelten Druckverlustwerte wird zusätzlich eine Ähnlichkeitsanalyse bei geometrisch ähnlichen Gewebestrukturen aufgezeigt und bewertet.
This volume presents the proceedings of an international conference organised by the Institution of Civil Engineers together with the Institution of Engineering in Ireland, it draws together the practical experiences gained by practising geotechnical engineers on such projects as the;resund Tunnel, Hong Kong's Western Harbour Crossing, the Medway Tunnel and the River Lee Tunnel in Cork. All aspects of immersed tube tunnel projects are discussed, from the geotechnical and hydraulic characteristics of tunnel sites, through the planning and design phases to the actual construction of tunnels.
This volume draws together a wide range of international experience in the techniques of planning, design and construction of submerged tubes. These tunnels have many uses outside their principal application for rail or vehicular traffic, such as services, effluent outfalls, water intakes and building substructures.
Produced as part of the Art and Virtual Environment Project conducted at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Banff, Canada from 1991 to 1994.
Immersed tunnels have been around for more than a century but remain a relatively unknown form of tunnel construction. For waterway crossings they are an effective alternative to bored tunnels and bridges, particularly in shallower waters, soft alluvial soils, and earthquake-prone areas. Successful implementation requires a thorough understanding of a wide variety of civil engineering disciplines and construction techniques. Immersed Tunnels brings together in one volume all aspects of immersed tunnels from initial feasibility and planning, through design and construction, to operation and maintenance. Get Valuable Insights into Immersed Tunnel Engineering from Expert Practitioners The book presents design and construction principles to give a full appreciation not only of what is involved in an immersed tunnel scheme but also how potential problems are dealt with and overcome. It examines important factors that have to be considered, particularly environmental implications and mechanical and electrical systems. It also gives practical examples of how specific techniques have been used in various projects and highlights issues that designers and constructors should be aware of. In addition, the book discusses operation and maintenance and reviews contractual matters. These aspects are described from the viewpoint of two experienced practitioners in the field who have a wealth of experience on immersed tunnel projects worldwide. As tunnels are increasingly being adopted as engineering solutions around the world, this unique and extensively illustrated reference explores the wide variety of immersed tunnel techniques available to designers and constructors. It provides essential insight for anyone involved, or seeking to be involved, with immersed tunnel projects.

"This book will be a useful resource for mathematicians, numerical analysts, engineers, graduate students, and anyone who uses numerical methods to solve computational problems, particularly problems with fixed and moving interfaces, free boundary problems, and problems on regular domains."--BOOK JACKET.
"Over the next few decades, immersive media could fundamentally change the ways humans engage in entertainment, communication, and social interaction. The current volume takes a step towards understanding this potential paradigm shift, combining insights from pioneers of the field of ‘presence’ with bright young scholars who bring a new perspective." —Jeremy Bailenson, Stanford University, USA "This book provides an indispensable contribution to scholars in communication studies, computer science and psychology interested in the modes of being present in different media, and offers a careful historical and theoretical framework to the state-of-the-art research."—Anna Spagnolli, University of Padova, Italy "Bracken and Skalski have assembled a collection of works from the world’s foremost authorities on telepresence, a topic that has gone understudied for years. Someone has finally assembled a comprehensive volume on the subject. This book is a must not only for those interested in telepresence, but for mass communication scholars of all kinds."—Kenneth A. Lachan, University of Massachusetts, Boston, USA Immersed in Media highlights the increasing significance of telepresence in the media field. With contributions representing diverse disciplines, this volume delves into the topic through considerations of popular media types and their effects on users. Chapters in the work explain how the experience of presence can be affected by media technologies, including television, video games, film, and the Internet. They also discuss how presence experience mediates or moderates commonly studied media effects, such as enjoyment, persuasion, and aggression. These discussions are accompanied by overviews of the current state of presence research and its future. Ultimately, this work establishes the crucial role of telepresence in gaining a complete understanding of the uses and effects of popular media technologies.
Immersed in Paradise is the story of a beautiful young woman torn between love and an ambition to serve humanity. Her relationship with her high school sweet heart had endured, even though they were separated during college, and, after graduation three months before September 11, 2001, they each found jobs in law enforcement in Washington. All went well for two years, until Chuck accepted an appointment to become a Federal Agent at Fort Story. Reluctant to be separated, but not ready for marriage, she requested a transfer to work in Norfolk, and secured unpaid leave to attend a language school in Cost a Rica to think things over during his training. While in Central America, she traveled extensively, bonded with her host family, and disappointed several male admirers. She worked with disadvanted children,, sometimes with heart-rending results, and was overwhelmed by the impact of poverty on them, and those she saw while traveling. When her visa expired, she returned home with a greater appreciation of her life, and would forever cherish her memories of the surrogate family of charismatic Italians who had taken her into their home and their hearts!

In this volume honoring William J. Abraham, noted theologians, philosophers, and historians offer erudite analysis of various aspects of the faith Scripture, conversion, initiation, liturgy, confession, reconciliation, and more and explore how those elements can serve to effect healing in broken lives. Brilliantly highlighting the therapeutic function of the means of grace available in Christian tradition, Immersed in the Life of God opens a conversation concerning an important theme too often neglected in the church today. / Contributors: Frederick D. Aquino, Ellen T. Charry, Paul L. Gavrilyuk, Douglas M. Koskela, Sandra Menssen, R. R. Reno, Thomas D. Sullivan, Jason E. Vickers, Geoffrey Wainwright, Robert W. Wall and Jerry L. Wals.
The joy of serving the Lord Jesus comes as we learn to do it in his grace. The church can be equipped to do the works of the ministry in the community around us. We can become Spirit-led and Spirit-empowered sons and daughters that heal the sick, preach the kingdom of God, and make disciples. Christians can learn how to hear and obey the Spirit. We can be immersed in the love of God and leak His love as we go about our daily activities.
