Revival: Twelfth International Conference on Adaptive Structures and Technologies (2002)

1st Edition

Norman Wereley, Inderjit Chopra, Darryll J Pines
February 20, 2019

This paper reviews some of the important technical barriers that must be overcome to achieve truly efficient flying adaptive micro air vehicles (MAVs). As defined by the Defense Advanced Research Agency (DARPA), MAVs are vehicles with no length dimension greater than 6 inches. These vehicles...

Natural Stone and World Heritage: Salamanca (Spain)

1st Edition

Dolores Pereira
February 05, 2019

Heritage stones are those stones that have been used for many years, even centuries, to build the historic buildings and monuments of places around the world. Some of these stones are still being used for construction, but others are no longer used, either because quarries were exhausted or closed...
