Edit The Occido Lumen is a translation, authored in , by Rabbi Avigdo Levy of Paris, of a collection of Mesopotamian clay tablets discovered in a cave in the Zagros Mountains in The tablets eventually came into the possession of a silk trader, who traveled with them throughout Europe, before being strangled in his warehouse in Florence, which was then set on fire. The tablets survived, however, and were traded to John Dee , a "necromancer" who was a consultant on magical matters to Elizabeth I. Though he was unable to decipher the tablets, Dee kept them until , when he was forced by poverty to sell them to Levy, a well-known scholar. Three hundred years before other scholars became capable of translating ancient Sumerian, Rabbi Levy taught himself to do so through patient study.
Figure 3 exhibits the force signal patterns and the related adjustable parameters that can be generated by two kinds of actuators, an electromagnetic [1, 2, 3] and a piezoelectric one.
The first actuator is driven by Laplace magnetic forces, developed in an electromagnetic field . The piezoelectric actuator enables the implementation of various impact force signal patterns sinusoidal, triangular, trapezoidal, etc. On one hand, the signal duration of an electromagnetic actuator amounts to approximately 1 ms, it is not adjustable and depends on the impact tester spindle constructive details as well as on the ball indenter and specimen 2nd International Conference of Engineering Against Fracture ICEAF II June , Mykonos, GREECE Figure 2: The developed impact tester arrangement strength properties.
On the other hand, via the displacement signal pattern of the piezoelectric actuator, various impact force signals can be modulated.
The remaining imprints at various impact signal durations after impacts were captured by confocal measurements and their depths were determined, as it is highlighted in Figure 4. The demonstrated results were attained at an impact force amplitude of 50 daN and force signal durations of 1 ms, 10 ms and 20 ms. These data as well as the corresponding ones, attained by impact tests at an impact amplitude of daN, are illustrated in figure 5.
In the latter figure, the impact duration effect on the surface deformation and thus on the developed remaining impact depth RID can be observed. Considering these results, it can be stated, that the same impact load lead to comparable larger surface plastic deformations and remaining imprint depths as well, at longer impact force signal durations.
This tendence can be explained by the material mechanical properties augmentation at high frequencies excitation, i. The impact duration effect on the surface deformation and thus on the developed remaining impact depth RID diminishes at impact force signal durations SD longer than 20 ms. This happens, since the related RID courses versus the impact force amplitude A at 20 ms SD are identical with the corresponding one of the load case having an impact force signal duration of ms.
The aforementioned FEM software is targeted for simulating excessive plastic deformations considering the developed strain rate field. Figure 6: a.
Impact test FEM model setup and b. A force — driven rigid body in contact with the indenter is used for applying the time — dependent loading. A triangular force pattern versus time is implemented in the model for simulating the impact loading with different durations, as improving the overall numerical convergence efficiency.
This method was applied due to its capability for describing analytically the real deformation behaviour of a material at a wide range of strains. Tabular data format was used in order to determine flow stress curves.
An essential requirement for carrying out a simulation in DEFORM 2D is the consideration of at least two flow stress — plastic strain curves, at different strain rate values. In the present investigation, the applied strain rate based mechanical properties, are illustrated in figure 6b. Simulation results considering remaining imprint depth versus impact signal duration are illustrated in figure 7. The corresponding experimental results can be also observed in the same figure.
By comparing these results it is obvious that both exhibit the same tendency, concerning imprint remaining depth augmentation versus the increase of impact signal duration. This fact can be explained by comparing the developed strain and strain rate fields at different impact durations.
As it is exhibited in figure 8, the increase of the impact duration leads to the maximum strain rate diminishing and plastic strain growth. In order to quantify the experimental material behaviour, the used material properties should be rectified. This operation was achieved through the analytical description of the indenter ball penetration into the specimen by employing the ANSYS software package. The developed FEM model is similar to the one illustrated in figure 6a. Thus, the time step can be calculated by dividing the corresponding impact load signal duration SD to the number of steps.
The initial stress — strain curve was computed through extrapolation of the stress — strain curves of figure 6b considering strain rate value equal to zero. These data were used for simulating impact test with an impact duration of 20 ms, as it can be considered as a static loading taking into account the experimental results presented in figure 5, thus causing a strain rate field of low, nearly to zero, strain rate values.
The material properties determination was accomplished by the addition or subtraction of a certain stress value to the stress — strain data points of the initial curve in order to approximate the experimental crater depths RIDs. The mechanical properties for impact loadings with signal durations SD of 1 and 10 ms were extracted using the aforementioned procedure. The strain rate calculation for the various impact force signal durations was achieved by registering the strain value of the node having the maximum one, which is located on the contact surface between the impact ball and the specimen near the contact end CE — see figure The strain difference between two successive steps, the last step is the one where the maximum impact load is applied, divided by the time step results to the strain rate value.
Therefore, impact force signal durations of 1, 10 and 20 ms cause strain rates which have a maximum value of 1. This fact agrees with the data illustrated in figure 7, where the impact depths calculated by DEFORM are lower than the experimental ones.
Instead, Lafargue's intellectual architects—the black author and activist Richard Wright and the iconoclastic Jewish psychiatrist Frederick Wertham—offered a radical conception of antiracist psychiatry that sought to tackle racial violence at both the mental and structural scales.
By tracking the intellectual itineraries of Wright and Wertham leading up to their collaboration in New York, Mendes locates the emergence of the Lafargue Clinic within a broader shift to psychological and psychiatric discourse in the U. This psychological reorientation of the human sciences sought to denaturalize the study of race and race relations by emphasizing the plasticity and malleability of the human psyche.
It also sought to reframe questions of race, oppression, and interpersonal relations in psychological, as opposed to biological, terms. Although both Wright and Wertham were influenced by the mind and social sciences of this period, Mendes shows that they did not comfortably reside within the disciplinary confines of human science expertise. By tracing their turbulent intellectual itineraries and pro- fessional struggles, Mendes paints a compelling portrait of how they became marginalized figures within their respec- tive disciplinary domains.
Chapter one traces the formative stages of Wright's career in Chicago during the s and New York in the s. Whereas Wright is best known as a novelist and writer who offered portrayals of black youth in turmoil, Mendes demonstrates how his work was influenced by the Chicago school of sociology and by psychoanalysis. Wright was born into poverty in the south and came to Chicago in the s as part of the Great Migration.
During the s, Wright embraced radical politics as a member of the Communist Party and began to hone his craft as a writer. He also met key figures from the Chicago School of Sociology and took inspiration from their approach to questions of race and urban- ization as well as their use of life histories as a means of understanding broader social patterns. Through his reading J Hist Behav Sci. Unfortunately, this project put him at odds with the party leadership who saw his writing aspirations as overly intellectual and he was branded an enemy of the party and forcefully tossed from the party's public May Day parade in It was during this period that he read Wertham's Dark Legend: A Study in Murder —a psy- choanalytic portrait of Gino, a young Italian immigrant who killed his mother.
After reading Wertham's work, which was highly sensitive to the angst produced by the pressure to assimilate, Wright became convinced that psychiatric care for blacks and immigrants could help counter the mental strain of racism.
Wright began corresponding with Wertham and eventually they became close friends and collaborators.
