Theory for Aquifer Test Analysis in Fractured Rocks Under Linear (Nonradial) Flow Conditions
The flow of ground water in a fractured rock aquifer may be linear toward a natural production surface rather than radial toward a pumping well, if the well penetrates a fracture having aExpand

Using dynamic simulation to quantify the effect of carbon-saving measures for a UK supermarket
A standard UK supermarket design is used to simulate the energy performance, and subsequent CO2 emissions, of a modern-day UK supermarket building. Retrofit measures are proposed to reduce these CO2Expand

Measurement of the modal shapes of inhomogeneous cantilevers using optical beam deflection
The study of free vibrations of systems such as simple cantilevers has been mainly concerned with the determination of the eigenvalues (frequencies) and eigenfunctions (modal shapes). A technique hasExpand

Experimental investigation of optimum thickness of a piezoelectric element for cantilever actuation
Piezoelectric elements may be used as actuators to control a wide range of structures. The magnitude of deflection which is possible for a cantilever is a direct function of the ratio of theExpand
