Capital and Labour on the Rhodesian Railway System, by Jon Lunn PDF

This crucial ebook is the 1st in-depth historical past of the Rhodesian railway procedure. protecting the interval 1888-1947, whilst the Rhodesian railway approach was once privately owned via Cecil Rhode's British South Africa corporation, this e-book makes use of the Rhodesian railway procedure as a prism by which it refracts many dimensions of the imperial event in relevant and southern Africa, starting from the impulses underpinning the nearby goals of Rhodes himself to the origins of black employee protest within the Rhodesias.

Example text

83 is useful for building anisotropic velocity models from seismic reflection data because the horizontal slownesses p1 and p2 can be directly measured at the Earth’s surface. , Helbig, 1994). 82 and observe that it implies the orthogonality of the group-velocity vector to the slowness surface. Thus, we arrive at an important duality: The slowness vector p is normal to the group-velocity surface. The group-velocity vector g is normal to the slowness surface. 11. The dark and light blue arrows are normals to the slowness surface.

13 with the initial conditions x (0) = x(0) and p(0) = p(0). In smoothly heterogeneous anisotropic med this would be the plane x3 = 0. 2: Rays emerging at observation surfaces typically do not arrive at predetermined receiver locations (squares). 2). If we want to find the traveltime t (x(r)), which would be usually the case, we will shoot a fan of rays and apply one of the following two strategies. Interpolation. Once the receiver x(r)={x1(r),x2(r)} is inside the cloud of the ray-emergence points {x1(end),x2(end)}, where {x1, x2} are the coordinates at the observation surface, we interpolate the times t(end)(x1(end),x2(end)) towards {x1(r),x2(r)}.

The parameters of the orthorhombic medium in this example, specifically, the low values of the diagonal stiffness elements a44, a55, and a66, were inspired by a model of the so-called acoustic anisotropy(4). This model was proposed by Alkhalifah (1998) to simplify wave-equation-based processing of P-waves in VTI media. , 2004). This strong anisotropy gets inherited by elastic media whose stiffness coefficients are in some sense close to the acoustic ones. 13b). 13d. _________________________________________ 3 Equalities c12 = c13 = c23 = 0 are satisfied for isotropy only when the Poisson’s ratio, v, is zero.
