While there are various options for managing the effects of dewatering, the challenge is to select options that are socially efficient and (...)

12:00 - SEMINAR - Economics Research Seminar : Early Development and Current Performance: The Missing Channel More Information
Abstract: We study the role of institutional development as a causal mechanism of history affecting current economic performance. Several indicators capturing different dimensions of early development in 1500 AD are used to remove the endogenous component of the variations in institutions. These (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : Exceptional Properties by Design - NiTi-Nb nanowire in-situ Composites Extending the Boundaries. Website | More Information
It is challenging to develop bulk materials that exhibit large elastic strains, low Young's moduli and high strengths because of the intrinsic trade-off relationships among these properties. On the other hand, freestanding nanowires have exceptional properties, such as ultrahigh elastic strain (...)
