Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The angle of repose (sometimes incorrectly confused with the 'angle of internal friction') is an engineering property of granular materials. It is the maximum angle of a stable slope determined by friction, cohesion and the shapes of the particles. When bulk granular materials are poured onto a horizontal surface, a conical pile will form. The internal angle between the surface of the pile and the horizontal surface is known as the angle of repose and is related to the density, surface area and shapes of the particles, and the coefficient of friction of the material. Material with a low angle of repose forms flatter piles than material with a high angle of repose. In other words, the angle of repose is the angle a pile forms with the ground.

The book concentrates on powder flow properties, their measurement and applications. These topics are explained starting from the interactions between individual particles up to the design of silos. A wide range of problems are discussed – such as flow obstructions, segregation, and vibrations. The goal is to provide a deeper understanding of the powder flow, and to show practical solutions.

Egypt provides a classic rather than a unique experience. According to modern historians, it has been a tourist destination since 30 B.C., and the interest of foreign travelers has hardly waned since. The photographers presented here are no exception; each knits past with present while validating their own discovery of Egypt's ancient monuments. From the pyramids of Giza to the Valley of the Kings, Lynn Davis' and Linda Connor's silver gelatin prints echo nineteenth-century photographers' documentations of their North African travels. Strewn with scaffolding, piecemeal temples and shattered sculptures of pharaohs, Tom Van Eynde's Egypt reveals the dramatic detail of its ruins. Harsh and colorful, Richard Misrach's landscapes juxtapose contemporary culture with ancient desert monuments, framing the Pyramids with tour buses, downtown Cairo, and cement housing complexes. The Angle of Reposeis the first book in a series featuring the LaSalle Bank Photography Collection, the second-oldest corporate collection of photography in America.

An understanding ofthe properties and the handling characteristics of liquids and gases has long been regarded as an essential requirement for most practising engineers. It is therefore not surprising that, over the years, there has been a regular appearance of books dealing with the fundamentals of fluid mechanics, fluid flow, hydraulics and related topics. What is surprising is that there has been no parallel development of the related discipline of Bulk Solids Handling, despite its increasing importance in modern industry across the world. It is only very recently that a structured approach to the teaching, and learning, of the subject has begun to evolve. A reason for the slow emergence of Bulk Solids Handling as an accepted topic of study in academic courses on mechanical, agricultural, chemical, mining and civil engineering is perhaps that the practice is so often taken for granted. Certainly the variety of materials being handled in bulk is almost endless, ranging in size from fine dust to rocks, in value from refuse to gold, and in temperature from deep-frozen peas to near-molten metal.

This book is a comprehensive, practical guide and reference to today's mechanical conveyor systems. It covers all types of mechanical conveyors, providing in-depth information on their design, function and applications. More than 180 photographs and schematics illustrate details of design and system layout. An introductory chapter provides an understanding of the characteristics of various types of bulk solids, including their conveyability and the types of conveying systems most effective for each. Following chapters examine each of five major categories of conveying systems, with practical details on their design, operation and applications. The final chapter presents basic information on motors and drives for conveying systems, as well as related equipment such as speed reduction systems and conveyor brakes. The emphasis throughout the text is on practical engineering and operating information, with a minimum of theory. The presentation is systematic and organized for easy reference. A very detailed index enables the quick location of needed information. This guide and reference will be useful to all engineers and other personnel involved in the continuous movement of bulk solids. It serves as both a basic introduction and a desk-top reference.
