Most geotechnical design codes and books use the equations of Meyerhof or Terzaghi to calculate shallow foundations. These equations are based on the failure mechanism published by Prandtl for shallow strip foundations. The common idea is that failure of a footing occurs in all cases according to a Prandtl-wedge failure mechanism. To check the failure mechanism and the equations of the currently used bearing capacity factors and correction factors, a large number of finite-element calculations of strip and circular footings have been made. The finite-element calculations show that in cases of soils with high friction angles, soils without cohesion or a surcharge, footings with inclined loading or circular footings, not the Prandtl-wedge failure mechanism, but other failure mechanisms occur. In addition, the currently used equations for the bearing capacity factors and correction factors are too high. Therefore, new equations have been presented in this article. For some correction factors, for example, the inclination factors and the cohesion slope factor, an analytical solution is found. [less ▲]

„Die Liebe verwundet, die Liebe fesselt, die Liebe macht krank, die Liebe lässt schwach werden.“ Dieser ursprünglich theologisch geprägte Gedanke über die Gewalt der Liebe, lässt sich – auf seinen bildlichen Kern reduziert – in zahllosen Varianten in der Weltliteratur aufspüren. Eine besonders auffällige Form scheinen dabei jene Texte zu bieten, die Liebe nicht allein als Auslöser, sondern gar selbst als Krankheit darstellen – zumindest implizit, insofern der Zustand des Verliebtseins mit dem Zustand der Krankheit gleichgesetzt wird. Wohl bekannt sind die körperlichen Symptome dieses Liebeszustandes, die in ihrer klassischen Ausprägung im Erbleichen, Erröten, Zittern, in Sprachlähmung sowie im Bluten aus der Nase bestehen und im Mittelalter als minnesiech bezeichnet werden. Erscheint die Liebeskrankheit im Minnesang noch vornehmlich in metaphorischem Gebrauch (s. das gequälte Herz als Beispiel für den Schmerz der Minne), weisen spätere Wörterbucheinträge (vgl. hierzu die Lemmata ‚Liebesfieber’ oder ‚Jungfernkrankheit’) wiederum auf ein stärker körperlich-physiologisches und auch sexuell-erotisches Verständnis von Liebe hin. Krank macht die Minne nun vor allem – und dem mittelalterlichen medizinischen Duktus der Humoralpathologie folgend – dann, wenn das körperliche Begehren nicht befriedigt werden kann. Der hier skizzierte Vortrag will die Vorstellung von Krankheit in einem größeren semantischen Beziehungsgeflecht in den Blick nehmen, das sich in der mhd. Lyrik in bedeutender Weise hervortut: der Verbindung Liebe – Krankheit – Wahn. Der wân als zentrales Symptom der Minnekrankheit löst – so die hier zu erprobende These –den Geist vom versehrten Körper und definiert damit den Übergang von der körperlichen Krankheit(smetapher) zu einer seelischen Zustandsbeschreibung. Die sprachhistorische Herleitung von mhd. wân vermag diese Beobachtung weiter zu untermauern, insofern der Begriff ein zunächst wertneutrales, semantisch vielfältiges Bedeutungsspektrum impliziert, und sich mit ‚Hoffnung, Zuversicht oder Einbildungskraft’ ins Nhd. übertragen ließe. Im krankhaften Minne-wân öffnen sich Denkräume, denen der Minnesang eine literarische Ausgestaltung verleiht; Minne-wân führt damit nicht nur zu körperlicher Versehrtheit, sondern ist eben auch guoter wân, lieber wân, saelden wân – und damit einer der ersten ‚Testräume’ für die Erprobung gedanklicher Spielarten des lyrischen Ichs in der deutschen Dichtung überhaupt.

This presentation focuses on the relationship between the language policy, language ideologies and language practices in a nursery class in trilingual Luxembourg. Individual multilingualism is an educational goal in Luxembourg, a small country in central Europe, and, thus, children learn Luxembourgish from the compulsory nursery school, become literate in German in Year 1 and learn oral and written French from Year 2 and Year 3, respectively. Currently, 62.4% of the children do not speak Luxembourgish on school entry (MENJE 2016). Many speak Portuguese, French or a language of the Balkans. As a result, educational policies focus on the teaching of Luxembourgish from preschool, sometimes at the expense of other languages. Gretsch and Kirsch (2015) developed the app iTEO in order to promote innovative teaching methods that capitalize on the children’s diverse language resources and that promote a dynamic view of bilingualism. This ipad app, which allows for the recording and editing of oral speech, was designed with social-constructivist theories and Bakhtin’s theory of dialogism in mind. This case-study presents the ways in which a preschool teacher’s ideological beliefs influence a child’s language use over a period of two years leading to the child’s understanding of the legitimacy of translanguaging. The focus lies on the interplay between the educational policy focusing on the teaching of Luxembourgish, the teacher’s language ideologies rooted in her multilingual identity and in societal multilingualism, and the child’s experiences of separating languages at home (Kirsch, 2014). The data stem from a qualitative, longitudinal study using a multi-method approach. The study shows that dialogue between teachers, parents, children, policy-makers and researchers can contribute to shifting ideologies and to opening up dynamic languaging spaces. [less ▲]

Gravel wash mud (GWM), a waste product from gravel mining was dried and processed into a fine powder to be activated by different concentrations of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solutions for the synthesis of an alkali-activated binder. The GWM powders were thermally treated at five different calcination temperatures 550, 650, 750, 850 and 950°C. The characterisation of the raw material comprises the particle size distribution (PSD) by laser granulometry, the chemical and mineralogical composition by X-ray fluorescence and X-ray diffraction analysis respectively, and simultaneous thermal analysis. The performance of the alkali-activated binders was examined using compression strength tests and the microstructure was observed using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The GWM was classified as an aluminosilicate raw material with kaolinite and illite as main clay minerals. Furthermore, a mean particle size around 6.50μm was determined for the uncalcined and calcined GWM powders. The SEM images of the developed binders showed the formation of a compact microstructure, however, relatively low strengths were achieved. This preliminary study highlights an example of an aluminosilicate prime material, which shows very promising chemical and mineralogical characteristics, but its suitability for alkaline activation without further additives was not confirmed as far as performance-based criteria are considered.
