The material point method for geotechnical engineering : a practical guide by James Fern( )

8 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This practical guide introduces large deformation material point method (MPM) simulations for geotechnical engineering. It provides the basic theory, discusses the different numerical features used in large deformation simulations, and presents a number of applications - providing references, examples and guidance"--
De morbo Gallico by Ulrich von Hutten( Book )

2 editions published in 1730 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The anatomy of humane bodies : with figures drawn after the life by some of the best masters in Europe and curiously engraven in one hundred and fourteen copper plates : illustrated with large explications containing many new anatomical discoveries and chirurgical observations : to which is added an introduction explaining the animal œconomy : with a copious index by William Cowper( Book )

2 editions published in 1698 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bidloo's plates, whether in its original edition or with Cowper's text, is considered the finest of the Baroque period, and one of the greatest artistic anatomies of all time. Despite imperfections from the point of view of dissection, the anatomical studies reflect much that is good, including early depictions of skin and hair from observation with a microscope. Considered as an artistic meditation on anatomy, Lairesse's designs are a total departure from the idealistic tradition inaugurated by Vesalius. Lairesse displayed his figures with every-day realism and sensuality, contrasting the raw dissected parts of the body with the full, soft surfaces of undissected flesh surrounding them; placing flayed, bound figures in ordinary nightclothes or bedding; setting objects such as a book, a jar, a crawling fly in the same space as a dissected limb or torso. He thus brought the qualities of Dutch still-life painting into anatomical illustration, and gave a new, darker expression to the significance of the act of dissection.--J. Norman, 2006
