Gaul was divided into three parts. No, four parts - for one small village of indomitable Gauls still held out against the Roman invaders.

Quaestor Vexatius Sinusitus turns up in Gaul to investigate the creative accountancy of Governor Varius Flavus. When the quaestor is poisoned, he turns to Getafix the druid and the other Gauls for help.

Part 1 Introduction to polymer/fibre composites: undirectional composites - manufacture and micromechanics; macromechanics of an undirectional sheet. Part 2 Introduction to solid body mechanics: structural shapes for engineering; forces in bodies; stress and strain; linear elastic behaviour; stresses, strains and curvatures in bending; shear stresses caused by bending; deflections of beams under transverse loads of moments; buckling. Part 3 Stiffness behaviour of simgle ply: stiffness of isotropic linear elastic ply; stiffness of an undirectional ply loaded in principle directions; stiffness of undirectional ply loaded in-plane off-axis. Part 4 Laminates based on isotropic plies. Part 5 Laminates based on undirectional plies: woven, flexible and knitted fabrics; crossply laminates; woven and braided fabric stressed off-axis; angle-ply lamminates; quasi-isotropic laminates; random-mat laminates; some other special laminates. Part 6 Strength of polymer/fibre composites: examples of familiar undirectional materials; strength of undirectional plies; strength of laminates; strength of crossply laminates; strength of angleply laminates; strength of quasi-isotropic laminates; introduction to edge effects in laminates. Part 7 Effect of change of temperature: elementary principles for temperature change; principles for change of temperature in a ply; laminates of isotropic plies under change of temperature; effect of change of temperature on stiffness of crossply laminates; effect of change of temperature on stiffness of angleply laminates; effect of change of temperature on strength of laminates; hydroscopic effects.

Reviews for Asterix in Switzerland (#16 Asterix)

The Asterix books represent the very summit of our achievement as a literary race. In Asterix one finds all of human life. The fact that the books were written originally in French is no matter. I have read them all in many languages and, like all great literature, they are best in English. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames. THE TIMES
