Shoe styles this year are fabulous, and platforms appear to be on the way out! While spiky pumps with very pointed toes are the shoes that’s setting a big trend. The hottest Fall/Winter shoe trends are shoes that don’t whisper, but shout! Ballerina flats are not the softly spoken ballerina flats of yesteryear, but stand to make a large statement. The demure velvet shoe is hot for the evening.
Expressing dismay that she’d booked one of his favorite bands, glam rock legends the New York Dolls, to play her 2009 SXSW Feedback event. “I don’t know whether to go out and shoot a puppy, or send Rachael a fruit basket. It just does me no good at all to think of Rachael as a Dolls fan,” he griped at the time.
By the late 19th century, scientists also began to theorize that the atom was made up of more than one fundamental unit. However, most scientists ventured that this unit would be the size of the smallest known atom hydrogen. By the end of the 19th century, his would change drastically..
The closest I came was on those Saturday afternoons at Dyche Stadium, bundled up against November lake gusts, cheer screaming with my classmates for Schnur and D’Wayne and Darnell, dancing along with the marching band to stay warm. As I watched the game in Jacksonville this week and saw today’s students doing all the same things (well, except for freezing their asses off), all those numb toed, sore throated hours came spinning back to me. When Coach Fitzgerald choked up in the post game interview, I was right there with him, because I knew he remembered those Saturdays, too he was our star linebacker during those shockingly triumphant seasons..
This paper introduces a numerical simulation tool using the Finite Element Method (FEM) for near surface mounted (NSM) strengthening technique using fibre reinforced polymers (FRP) applied to concrete elements.In order to properly simulate the structural behaviour of NSM FRP systems there are three materials (concrete, FRP and the adhesive that binds them) and two interfaces (FRP/adhesive and adhesive/concrete) that shall be considered.This work presents the major details of a discontinuous based constitutive model which aims at simulating NSM FRP interfaces implemented in the FEMIX FEM software. This constitutive model was adapted from one available in the literature, originally employed for fracture simulation in meso scale analyses of quasi brittle materials, which is based on the classical Flow Theory of Plasticity combined with fracture mechanics concepts. The most important features of the implemented constitutive model are the consideration of both fracture modes I and II and the possibility of performing 2D and 3D analysis.In the end, results based on FEM simulations are presented with the aim of investigating the soundness and accuracy of the constitutive model to simulate NSM FRP systems TM interfaces..
