A new method is presented for the numerical solution of structural dynamics problems at higher frequencies. This method combines the advantages of plane wave and moving least square approximations, and it naturally embeds the spectral information into the discrete system of equations. With a much coarser discretisation of the problem domain, the new method can achieve the same or higher accuracy compared to conventional finite element method. Numerical examples are presented to demonstrate the use and effectiveness of the new method.

Oil Analysis for Hydraulic Systems
Hydraulic systems are used in industrial, mobile and aviation applications to transmit power to operate equipment. They are incredibly efficient, compact, and lightweight relative to a mechanical equivalent. Hydraulic fluids transmit force in the system, and as such are carefully chosen by the system maker. Chemical stability, high flash and fire points, viscosity, and oxidation resistance are all valued, and as a result mineral and synthetic hydrocarbon fluids are selected for mobile and industrial systems,...
Sample preparation is the key to quality analysis with a laser analyser
Sample preparation is the most important step of any chemical analysis. To get the best results with any elemental alloy analyser regardless of the technology, the sample must be clean before taking a measurement. Otherwise the results are always compromised at least to some extent. The effect of dirty surfaces will vary and some technologies are more forgiving to sample surface conditions than others. How well an analyser can tolerate dirty surfaces depends on many variables such as the nature of physical...
Parameters controlling chemical deposits in micro-irrigation with treated wastewater
Micro-irrigation with treated wastewater has the potential to be the most efficient irrigation technique, especially in water scarce areas. Its main disadvantage is the high sensitivity of the drippers to clog. This study focused only on the chemical precipitation mechanisms. In a batch chemical process in parallel with PHREEQC software, two temperatures (22 and 55°C), four pHs (8, 8.5, 9 and 9.5) and CO2 partial pressure were tested. The aim was to analyze the quantity of precipitates and their crystalline...
Application note issue #5 - Cement Analysis August 2017
Cement analysis using FP program (Fundamental Parameters) Cement is a blend of several minerals. It is critical to control the elemental composition and properties such as strength, setting, time and color. ED-XRF is being used to analyze the raw components, raw meal, clinker, and the final cement product (Na, Mg, Al, Si, S, K, Ca, and Fe in Cement, Clinker, and Raw Meal).XRF is at the heart of the control of the production process in any modern cement works and is central to the ability of the cement maker...
