Birth Legacies and State Failure.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Journal of Conflict Resolution. Nov2022, Vol. 66 Issue 10, p1854-1880. 27p.

Abstract: We argue patterns of state failure are influenced by variation in how states emerged as independent political actors. In particular, states with positive birth legacies, those whose emergence required relatively high levels of capacity and legitimacy, ...

On the Derivative Counting Processes of First- and Second-order Aggregated Semi-Markov Systems.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Methodology & Computing in Applied Probability. Sep2022, Vol. 24 Issue 3, p1849-1875. 27p.

Abstract: In this paper, first- and second-order discrete-time semi-Markov systems are considered with their finite state space divided into three subsets as perfect functioning states, imperfect functioning states and failure states, respectively. The counting ...

The Stress−Dilatancy Behaviour of Artificially Bonded Soils.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Materials (1996-1944). Oct2022, Vol. 15 Issue 20, p7068-N.PAG. 13p.

Abstract: In this study, the results of triaxial compression tests of some naturally and artificially bonded soils presented in the literature were analysed. It was shown that the three characteristic stages of plastic flow during shear can be identified. In all...

Revolutionary Democracy: A Terminus or Way Station for Ethiopia?

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Journal of Developing Societies (Sage Publications Inc.). Dec2022, Vol. 38 Issue 4, p463-482. 20p.

Authors:

Abstract: This special issue of JDS provides several critical perspectives on the federal Constitution, the state, and contemporary politics of Ethiopia. All the contributors agree that Ethiopia's federal system promotes ethnic conflict rather than fostering an ...

The mechanical behaviour of Bolders Bank till.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Canadian Geotechnical Journal. 2022, Vol. 59 Issue 12, p2163-2183. 21p.

Abstract: Des techniques avancées d'échantillonnage et d'essai sont appliquées pour évaluer le comportement mécanique d'un till britannique rigide, à dominante de limon et d'argile, pierreux et peu plastique, dont la genèse et l'histoire post-dépositionnelle ont...

Crossing Boundaries: Poetry, Metaphor, and Cosmopolitan Dialogue at the Court of Roger II.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Global Intellectual History. Oct2022, Vol. 7 Issue 5, p859-875. 17p.

Abstract: The Siculo-Norman king, Roger II (1095–1154), created a courtly culture that used art, architecture, and literature to reflect the symbolic and cultural values of the states that ringed the Mediterranean. An essential vehicle for Roger's cosmopolitan d...

Logistics Contracts and the Political Economy of State Failure: Evidence from Somalia.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): African Affairs. Jul2022, Vol. 121 Issue 484, p395-417. 23p.

Authors:

Abstract: Scholars have long sought to understand how economic rents may inhibit the formation of effective and accountable government. Prevailing interpretations of empirical state failure do not adequately account for economic connections and rents. Based on i...

Availability and cost assessment of systems with dormant failure undergoing sequential inspections.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering. 2022, Vol. 28 Issue 3, p533-544. 12p.

Abstract: Purpose: The system encountering dormant failure subject to sequential inspections is modeled and the emphasis is made on determining the availability and long-run average cost rate for the model. The derived results are then utilized to obtain the opt...

Influence of Weak Interlayer Filling State on the Failure Patterns of Natural Rock Joints.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): International Journal of Geomechanics. Jul2022, Vol. 22 Issue 7, p1-9. 9p.

Abstract: Weak interlayers determine the strength and stability of a jointed rock mass. The influence of weak interlayer filling state on the shear strength and failure patterns of a rock mass was studied by direct shear testing. Two different shear failure patt...

Competing Risks Modeling by Extended Phase-Type Semi-Markov Distributions.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Methodology & Computing in Applied Probability. Mar2022, Vol. 24 Issue 1, p309-319. 11p.

Abstract: We present competing risks models within a semi-Markov process framework via the semi-Markov phase-type distribution. We consider semi-Markov processes in continuous and discrete time with a finite number of transient states and a finite number of abso...
