The New York City Subway System (Building America: Then and Now) In 1912, workers digging to create the Broadway Subway, north of Murray Street in lower Manhattan, hit a brick wall approximately 21 feet (6.4 meters) below the street surface. Breaking through the wall, the laborers came upon a tunnel 9 feet (2.7 m) in diameter and lined with eight- inch- thick (20.32 centimeters) bricks. Two rails led into a...
Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams (3rd Edition)
“Peopleware has long been one of my two favorite books on software engineering. Its underlying strength is its base of immense real experience, much of it quantified. Many, many varied projects have been reflected on and distilled; but what we are given is not just lifeless distillate, but vivid examples from...
Layers of the Earth (The Restless Earth) The Earth is made of layers, each with its own unique characteristics and processes that make it a vital part of the planet. The solid inner core, for example, is the farthest layer from the planet's surface, yet it provides much of the heat needed to fuel dramatic surface phenomena such as volcanoes and earthquakes. Likewise, the outer core... Mastering Modern Web Penetration Testing

on Earth. Much less water is stored below the land
surface in the form of fresh groundwater, amounting
to not quite 0.8% of the earth’s total water
reserves, while lakes and rivers combined only
contribute a further... The Method of Moments in Electromagnetics Responding to the need for a clear, up-to-date introduction to the field, The Method of Moments in Electromagnetics explores surface integral equations in electromagnetics and presents their numerical solution using the method of moments (MOM) technique. It provides the numerical implementation aspects at a nuts-and-bolts level...
