Cracking codes : the Rosetta stone and decipherment by R. B Parkinson( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Rosetta Stone has become an instantly recognizable icon of script and decipherment and is one of the most famous Egyptian antiquities in the world. Discovered by Napoleon's troops at the village of Rosetta in the western Delta in 1799, the granitoid slab is a fragment of a stela inscribed with a priestly decree in honour of Ptolemy V. The main significance of the text lies not in its content, however, but in the fact that it is written in three scripts: hieroglyphic, demotic and ancient Greek." "Richard Parkinson here tells the story of the Stone's discovery and the so-called battle of the decipherers which it inspired."--BOOK JACKET
Demotic grammar in the Ptolemaic sacerdotal decrees by R. S Simpson( Book )

11 editions published between 1966 and 1996 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full analysis of the grammar of demotic Egypt as found in the Canopus decree of 238 BC, the Raphia decree of 217 BC, the Memphis (Rosetta) decree of 196 BC and the two Philae decrees of 186 and 184 BC. These texts, which have been famous since the discovery of the Rosetta stone, were promulgated in Egyptian and Greek by annual synods of the Egyptian priesthood, and were intended to express gratitude for royal patronage and to regulate the royal temple cults. This study which presupposes no specialist knowledge of demotic, aims to use the decrees to advance understanding of linguistic constructions and idenitify peculiarities in this corpus. The book includes transcriptions and translations of all the texts on facing pages. --

Development of a Mathematical Model for Predicting the Percentage Fatigue Life Increase Resulting from Shot Peened Components by R. S Simpson( Book )

4 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shot peening is used extensively in many aircraft structural and engine applications to enhance fatigue life and stress corrosion resistance. Recent research indicates that high shot peening intensities can produce a phenomenon called peened surface extrusion folds (PSEF) which is hypothesized to result in fatigue life reductions. In this investigation more than one hundred specimens of 7075-T6 and 7075-T73 aluminum material were manufactured and treated at various levels of shot peening intensity, almen saturation level, and peening media size. Specimens were subsequently fatigue tested under axial loading conditions. The longest fatigue life was obtained at relatively low almen intensities with the smallest size glass bead at 100-110% almen saturation. Intensity vs fatigue life patterns were similar for both materials. The optimum intensity level was substantially below that specified in MIL-STD-852. Scanning electron microscopy and metallography showed increasing depth and quantity of PSEF and embedded glass bead particles at the surface as peening intensity increased. Test work demonstrated statistically significant effects of PSEF, embedded glass particles, percent of almen saturation, part material hardness, and peening media size on specimen fatigue life. Multiple linear statistical regression of these four variables accounted for a high percentage of the variance in speciment fatigue life. Additional keywords: Residual stress, Aluminum alloys.
