Example Of substructure

  • Almost 300 fragments of plaster casts of ancient statuary were excavated in a cellar-like area forming the substructure of a hall or terrace within the great bath complex at Baiae, the Roman seaside resort near Naples.

  • By a fortunate coincidence, the interest in algebraic structures related to substructural logics is also undergoing a revival among algebraists.

  • How then does one interactively mine this diverse data consistent with the desired substructural template, so those desirable structural features can be discovered and interpreted, especially when they may not occur in the most active compounds due to structural deficiencies in other portions of the molecule?

  • Moreover, the class of distributive substructural logics includes many of important non-classical logics like superintuitionistic logics, many-valued logics and fuzzy logics.

  • Soil compaction is common in civil engineering practice mainly in highway and rail road works, run ways, earth dams, sanitary landfills and backfilling of excavations for substructures and retaining walls.
