Borates: Handbook of Deposits, Processing, Properties, and Use

This complete reference is the 1st to hide industrially very important borates, from deposits, via chemistry, mining, processing, and functions. The reference paintings starts off with an inventory of the 238 at the moment recognized borate minerals, their formulation, and homes. It positive factors smooth theories at the beginning of borate deposits, their molecular constitution and specific descriptions of the world's borate deposits.

Mining Economics and Strategy

Monetary ability is an important companion to technical ability in each step of the mining approach. An fiscal "mindset" starts off sooner than the 1st drill gap. This new publication can help you successfully direct mining operations by using leading edge monetary options. The textual content covers what's intended via a cheap mining scheme, the economics of knowledge, and the tactics for rational review of doubtful tasks.

Mine Management

This publication had its begin while Douglas A. Sloan and the past due Ralph Davies first determined to proportion our firm's adventure in mine deal with­ ment consulting assignments through the use of this event because the foundation for a mine administration and productiveness direction. through the years with progressively more assignments, the path textual content notes have been consistently up to date and more desirable.

The Smokeless Coal Fields of West Virginia: A Brief History

The Smokeless Coal Fields of West Virginia: a short background first seemed in 1963, a bit e-book via a guy without education as both a author or a historian. in view that then, this quantity has develop into a vital sourcebook, consulted and quoted in approximately each examine of coal box historical past. The awesome effect and sturdiness of the booklet are because of either the data in it and the character in the back of it.

The minimum pressure occurs where 1- 4sin 2 8 has its minimum value, that is, where 8 = 90° and 270°, and, at these points, it follows from Eq. pU 2 - - 3. In Fig. 28 are shown the distributions of pressure along the boundary and the centre-line of a two-dimensional contraction in a horizontal plane. Of interest are the locations of points of maximum pressure, at the stagnation point S, and of minimum pressure, at X on the curved boundary outside the region of uniform low pressure 43 FLOW OF AN IDEAL FLUID and high velocity.

The three terms are known as the velocity head, the pressure head and the elevation head, respectively, and their sum, H or H' is the total head. It is evident that, in steady non-viscous flow, the total head, H', is constant along a streamline and that if, in addition, the flow is irrotational, the total head, H, is constant throughout the flow. 14 Velocity and pressure distributions Distributions of velocity can be represented either by means of a series of individual arrows, the length of each representing the velocity at its rear tip, or by means of velocity distribution curves.

The pattern of steady How of an infinite fluid in the x-direction past a cylinder of radius a at the origin, the fluid velocity at infinity being U. 52 PROBLEMS (a) Determine the velocity distributions in non-dimensional form along the x- andy-axes and on the cylinder boundary. (b) At what distances in terms of the cylinder radius from the origin along the x- andy-axes are the velocities within 1 per cent of the undisturbed velocity, U? (c) Show these non-dimensional distributions on a scale-drawing of the cylinder and axes.
