Bringing together texts and work by theorists and practitioners who are making material central to their work, this book reflects the diverse areas of inquiry which are expanding current material discourse. Focusing on the cultural, political, economic, technological and intellectual forces which shape material practices in architecture, the contributors draw on disciplines ranging from philosophy, history and pedagogy to art practice and digital and low-tech fabrication. By paying critical attention to material, a wide range of issues emerge which are otherwise excluded from architectural d

How are we to "write" an active interpretative account of past material culture? "Material Culture and Text" tackles this most basic problem of historical and archaeological analysis - the relationship between text and artefact - in an analysis of prehistoric art, fusing theory and practice with interpretation to create a fresh framework for understanding the relationship between past and present. It incorporates major tenets from post-structuralist thought in an analysis of prehistory. The text sets to work on a collection of rock carvings from Northern Sweden and shows how alternative concep

This volume presents recent developments in the theory of defects and the mechanics of material forces. Most of the contributions were presented at the International Symposium on Defect and Material Forces (ISDMM2007), held in Aussois, France, March 25-29, 2007. The mechanics of material forces, originated in the works of Eshelby, provide a rational framework for the description of driving forces on evolving inhomogeneities and structural changes in continua. The general eshelbian mechanics formulation comes up with a unifying treatment of different phenomena like fracture and damage evolutio

This volume reviews the latest experimental and theoretical studies in the field of ZnO. The chapters reflect the topics that were discussed during the NATO Advanced Research Workshop, which brought together researchers from Nato countries, Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan to encourage cross fertilization and wider dissemination of the advances in this important research field. Fundamental issues such as growth of ZnO, structural, optical and electric properties, the role of the hydrogen and more were discussed.

This Symposium provided an international forum for exchange of ideas and creation of knowledge in recent advances on Multi-Functional Material Structures and Systems. Novel theories, mathematical models, analyses, and application of computational and experimental methods are the focus of the Symposium. In particular, it reflects the state of the art in mathematical modeling, computational methods, new experimental methods, new and advanced engineering applications in emerging technologies advanced sensors, structural health monitoring, MEMS, and advanced control systems.
