Woman the toolmaker : hideworking and stone tool use in Konso, Ethiopia by Tara Belkin( Visual )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Woman the toolmaker portrays the remarkable lives of a group of Konso hide workers from southern Ethiopia who may be the last people in the world to make and use flaked stone tools regularly. Unlike the 'man the toolmaker' stereotype, most Konso hide workers are women who learn their skills from female relatives. This ethnoarchaeological film shows the complete life cycle of making and using flaked stone artifacts, including scraping hides to produce soft leather products for bedding, bags, drums and even ritual clothing, and the processes of collecting, working, heat-treating, resharpening, recycling, and discarding stone scrapers. It places stone tool making and hide working in their social and economic contexts, highlighting the importance of women's roles in past and present societies. Woman the toolmaker is a unique addition to undergraduate and graduate courses in anthropology, archaeology, and women's studies, including material culture, technology, methods and ethnography

During the winter months of 1974 and 1975 an interdisciplinary team of scientists under the direction of J.D. Clark of the University of California, Berkeley conducted archaeological and geomorphological research along the western side of Lake Besaka, a small graben-enclosed saline lake located in the southern Afar Rift of east-central Ethiopia
Numerical simulation of leading-edge vortex rollup and bursting by Steven Allan Brandt( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Vortex aerodynamics has played an important role in the development of high performance aircraft in recent years. Although computer codes which solve the three dimensional Euler equations have been used extensively to study leading-edge vortices, they don't include physical viscosity effects associated with vortex flows. The Euler solvers do, however, contain numerical viscosity. As a result, viscosity effects in the Euler solutions such as vortex core size, vortex burst location, leading edge separation, and vortex rollup often do not agree quantitatively with results of physical experiments. The present work defines models for these physical viscosity effects which can be coupled with an Euler solver to improve modeling of vortex physics. A vortex core model is derived from the steady, incompressible Navier-Stokes equations written in cylindrical coordinates. The core model is coupled with an Euler solver and tested on a variety of delta wings over a range of angles of attack. The resulting surface pressure distributions and vortex burst locations are shown to be much closer than results from Euler codes alone. Theses. (jhd)
