This quantity includes invited papers and communications provided on the 3rd ecu Workshop assembly on Selective Oxidation by means of Heterogeneous Catalysis. the aim of the assembly was once to give fresh effects and to debate new features of partial oxidation by means of heterogeneous catalysis. the subsequent subject matters have been mentioned: Novel techniques for acquiring new superb chemical substances by way of catalytic partial oxidation; selective oxidation and oxidative dehydrogenation of alkanes; new catalysts and advances in training equipment of oxidation catalysts; new phenomena in partial oxidation and new elements of floor chemistry in oxide catalysts; new functions of physicochemical tools for characterization of oxide catalysts; oxidation with different brokers than oxygen and catalytic oxidation of carbohydrates.
A revised variation of a textual content on unit operations of chemical engineering, this paintings includes up to date and new fabric reflecting partly the broadening of the chemical engineering occupation into new components resembling meals processing, electronics and biochemical purposes. As in past variations, separate chapters are dedicated to all of the 4 precept unit operations - fluid mechanics, warmth move, equilibrium levels and mass move, and operations concerning particulate solids - and comprises insurance of adsorption, absorption and membrane separation.

Thirdly, the projectile reaches the comminuted material and imposes high pressure, Zone 3, extruding the comminuted material to the sides of the projectile nose and into the cracked and coarsely fragmented tunnel. Penetrating projectile Extrusion I Compression Comminution /Shear (the Mescall zone) Cracking /Tension Figure 11. Stress conditions and damage activity ahead of a penetrating projectile Target material displaced by the projectile is accommodated in the early stages of penetration by ejection of target fragments and uplift at the impact surface.

Several targets cracked through and the penetrator lay separated tkom the target pieces. The slightly tilted attitude of the arrested projectile suggested some yaw at impact. Figure 1 shows a target before and after impact. Figure 1 . Target assembly before and after impact. After the impact, the encased targets with the embedded projectiles were carefully removed from the target mount to minimize shifting of the glass fragments. placed in the heated vacuum chamber on the rear plate (face plate up), and infiltrated with epoxy to hold the fragments in place and allow the fragmented target to be sectioned.
