This e-book bargains a concise presentation of theoretical thoughts characterizing and quantifying the slowing down of fast heavy ions in topic. even supposing the penetration of charged debris via subject has been studied for nearly 100 years, the quantitative idea for fast penetrating ions heavier than helium has been built customarily in the past decade and remains to be progressing swiftly. The publication addresses scientists and engineers operating at accelerators with an curiosity in fabrics research and amendment, clinical diagnostics and remedy, mass spectrometry and radiation harm, in addition to atomic and nuclear physicists. even though now not a textbook, this monograph represents a different resource of cutting-edge details that's priceless to a college instructor in any path related to the interplay of charged debris with matter.

During this quantity a survey of the main suitable nonlinear crack versions is equipped, with the aim of examining the nonlinear mechanical results taking place on the tip of macrocracks in quasi-brittle fabrics - equivalent to concrete, rocks, ceramics, polymers, high-strength steel alloys - and in brittle-matrix fibre-reinforced composites.

1969) revealed that – – – stopping forces on bare helium ions were higher than four times those on bare protons, that the difference increased with decreasing projectile speed and the effect could be quantified in terms of a term proportional to Z13 contributing to the stopping force. Even though the effect was small – at a level of several per cent for proton energies in the MeV range – it was these measurements that triggered several theoretical studies aiming at an understanding of this ‘Z13 effect’.
