  • Publisher: Unknown

Complement is an essential feature of an animal's ability to develop immunity to infection. This volume summarizes present understanding of this complex system in terms of the structures of the protein components and their activation mechanisms. The genetics of these proteins is described together with recent contributions by recombinant DNA techniques to the organization of the genes of the three complement components that are present in the major histocompatibility complex.

Modeling and Analysis of Modern Fluid Problems

Modeling and Analysis of Modern Fluids helps researchers solve physical problems observed in fluid dynamics and related fields, such as heat and mass transfer, boundary layer phenomena, and numerical heat transfer. These problems are characterized by nonlinearity and large system dimensionality, and ‘exact’ solutions are impossible to provide using the conventional mixture of theoretical and analytical analysis with purely numerical methods. To solve these complex problems, this work provides a toolkit of established and novel methods drawn from the literature across nonlinear approximation theory. It covers Padé approximation theory, embedded-parameters perturbation, Adomian decomposit...

Creep and Fatigue in Polymer Matrix Composites

  • Type: Book
  • -
  • Published: 2010-11-29

  • Publisher: Elsevier

Creep is the tendency of materials to deform when subjected to long-term stress, particularly when exposed to heat. Fatigue phenomena occur when a material is subjected to cyclic loading, causing damage which may progress to failure. Both are critical factors in the long-term performance and reliability of materials such as polymer matrix composites which are often exposed to these types of stress in civil engineering and other applications. This important book reviews the latest research in modelling and predicting creep and fatigue in polymer matrix composites. The first part of the book reviews the modelling of viscoelastic and viscoplastic behaviour as a way of predicting performance and...
