1 Box 21 - Anders Roslund & Börge Hellström
Auteur : Anders Roslund & Börge Hellström
Genre : Mysteries & Thrillers
The International Thriller that Stockholm City hailed as the Best Crime Novel of the Year has finally crossed the Atlantic!

Three years ago, Lydia and Alena were two hopeful girls from Lithuania. Now they are sex slaves, lured to Sweden with the promise of better jobs and then trapped in a Stockholm brothel, forced to repay their "debt." Suddenly they are given an unexpected chance at freedom, and with it the opportunity to take revenge on their enslavers and reclaim the lives and dignity they once had. What will happen now that the tables are turned and the victims fight back?

In this masterful thriller, the celebrated team of Anders Roslund and Börge Hellström delve into the seedy underbelly of Stockholm. There we meet Lydia and Alena as they embark on a desperate plan to expose their captor and demand justice; police officers Sundkvist and Grens,

2 Convective Heat Transfer From Rotating Disks Subjected To Streams Of Air - Stefan aus der Wiesche & Christian Helcig
Auteur : Stefan aus der Wiesche & Christian Helcig
Genre : Physics
This Brief describes systematically results of research studies on a series of convective heat transfer phenomena from rotating disks in air crossflow. Phenomena described in this volume were investigated experimentally using an electrically heated disk placed in the test section of a wind tunnel. The authors describe findings in which transitions between different heat transfer regimes can occur in dependency on the involved Reynolds numbers and the angle of incidence, and that these transitions could be related to phenomenological Landau and Landau-de Gennes models. The concise volume closes a substantial gap in the scientific literature with respect to flow and heat transfer in rotating disk systems and provides a comprehensive presentation of new and recent results not previously published in book form.

7 The Body, Subject & Subjected - Debra Andrist
Auteur : Debra Andrist
Genre : Medical
Hominids have always been obsessed with representing their own bodies. The first "selfies" were prehistoric negative hand images and human stick figures, followed by stone and ceramic representations of the human figure. Thousands of years later, moving via historic art and literature to contemporary social media, the contemporary term "selfie" was self-generated. The Body, Subject & Subjected illuminates some "selfies." This collection of critical essays about the fixation on the human self addresses a multi-faceted geographic set of cultures, analyzing such representations from medical, literal and metaphorical perspectives over centuries. The essays reveal critics' insights when "selfies" are examined through a focused "lens" over a breadth of cultures. The result, complex and unique, is that what is viewed – the visual art and literat

~ Why Have We Been Subjected to Life?

Daniel J. Sayer weighs loss, life, and learning, when a mysterious individual shows up at different points of his journey and begins addressing some of those “Big Universe” questions Daniel’s been asking.


Daniel Jeremy Sayer has gone through more than his share of pain, loss, and frustration. Which leads him to ask some “Big Universe” questions: Why have we been subjected to this life? What on Earth is happening? Why the big mystery? Is anyone out there even listening?

When the answers start coming, in the form of a mysterious, seemingly benign, yet oddly inane individual from another dimension—Alien, or Angel, he’s not sure which—Daniel suddenly begins to question whether he really

9 Reliability of Steel Columns Protected by Intumescent Coatings Subjected to Natural Fires - Chao Zhang
Auteur : Chao Zhang
Genre : Civil Engineering
This thesis studied the effect of aging of intumescent coatings (ICs) on the reliability of protected steel columns in fire condition and developed a probabilistic approach to assess the service life of ICs applied on steel columns. In the study, Monte Carlo simulations were conducted to obtain the reliability index or failure probability of steel columns protected by ICs subjected to compartment fires.  The effect of aging of intumescent coatings on the failure probability of protected steel columns was investigated by using variable insulation property of intumescent coatings in the simulation. The test data on aging effect on insulation property of intumescent coatings from literature was used. Based on the reliability analysis, a probabilistic approach is given to determine the service life of intumescent coatings for steel columns. In that approach, the failure probability of t

10 Reliability of Maintained Systems Subjected to Wear Failure Mechanisms - Franck Bayle
Auteur : Franck Bayle
Genre : Engineering
Today, the reliability of systems has become a major issue in most industrial applications. The theoretical approach to estimating reliability was largely developed in the 1960s for maintenance-free systems, and more recently, in the late 1990s, it was developed for maintenance-based systems.

Customers’ expectations concerning reliability (as well as maintenance, safety, etc.) are growing ever more demanding over the generations of systems. However, the theoretical methods used to handle the systems are not suitable when aging mechanisms are present.

This book proposes a theoretical approach to estimate all of these quantities correctly. In addition to the theoretical aspect, it details a number of issues that any industrial system will meet sooner or later, whether due to design flaws, the batch of components, manufacturing problems or new technologies that res

11 Consumer Evaluation of Diploid and Triploid Pacific Oysters Subjected to High Pressure Treatment. - Journal of Shellfish Research
Auteur : Journal of Shellfish Research
Genre : Life Sciences
ABSTRACT A sample of Australian oyster consumers evaluated the sensory quality of diploid and triploid Pacific oysters subjected to high pressure (HP) treatment with and without salt. Triploid and diploid oysters received comparable hedonic ratings despite having dissimilar condition indices at the time of testing. The HP treatment did not adversely affect the sensory quality of Pacific oysters because the test products received similar ratings of sensory quality to the control (unprocessed) products. Moreover, oysters subject to HP received higher ratings for liking of appearance and were judged to have lower levels of perceived saltiness compared with the control. The use of HP in extending the shelf life of farmed Australian oysters should be investigated. KEYWORDS: Pacific oyster, high pressure, triploid, consumer sensory evaluation, sensory quality, Crassostrea gigas

13 Subjected Subcontinent - Eiko Ohira
Auteur : Eiko Ohira
Genre : Literary Criticism
This book offers a new, complex understanding of Indian writing in English by focusing its analysis on both Indo-Pakistani Partition fiction and novels written by women. The author gives a comprehensive outline of Partition novels in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh written in English as well as an overview of the challenges of studying Partition literature, particularly English translations of Partition novels in regional languages. Featured works include Salman Rushdie’s ‘Midnight’s Children’, Bapsi Sidhwa’s ‘Ice-Candy-Man’, Amitav Ghosh’s ‘Shadow Lines’, Meena Arora Nayak’s ‘About Daddy’, and Sujata Sabnis’s ‘A Twist in Destiny’. The book then moves on to a study of novels by women writers such as Githa Hariharan, Kiran Desai, Anita Desai, and Arundhati Roy, exploring their perspectives on sexuality, the body, and the diaspora.
