    Abstract: Optimal estimation of the diffraction observations over the object reliably detects periodicity in the dislocation structure of martensitic transformation as an exhibition of its wave nature. The period along normal to the slip planes is comparable with the radius of dislocation loops in crystals. The measured degree of one-dimensional long-range o... Show More

    Abstract: This work concerns the thermophysical characterization of a bio-eco-material made from cow dung and the macerate of néré pods. To achieve this, chemical tests based on tannin concentration determination of four different solutions of néré pods (60 g.l-1; 120 g.l-1; 180 g.l-1 and 240 g.l-1) were prepared at 100°C, then brought to the boil for 5 minu...
