"On Divers Arts, c. 1122, is the oldest extant manual on artistic crafts to be written by a practicing artist ... On Divers Arts describes actual 12-century techniques in painting, glass, and metalwork ... This translation of the medieval manuscript most essential to an understanding of pre-Renaissance art and technology is the result of a collaboration between a Latin scholar and a metallurgist. Their fully annotated edition presents complete bibliographic and biographic data, with 18 illustrations of surviving work in the manner of Theophilus, including examples by the Benedictine monk Roger of Helmarshausen, who appears to be the true author using a Byzantine pseudonym"--

Beryllium oxide : Los Alamos technical series, metallurgy, volume 10, chapter 3 by Cyril Stanley Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 1945 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first production job undertaken by the Metallurgy Groups at Los Alamos was that of the specially-shaped high-density beryllium oxide bricks needed for the Water Boiler. Hot-pressing of BeO powder was found to be the most satisfactory method of obtaining intricately-shaped bricks of suitable density. This was accomplished by charging the powder into a graphite die, or mold, of suitable shape fitted with a punch, or plunger, of graphite. The die and contents were heated to about 1700 deg C by means of an induction coil connected to a high-frequency converter. During the heating period a pressure of 1000 psi was applied to the plunger, thus consolidating the semiplastic BeO powder into a dense coherent mass of the shape of the die
