Explore the variable speed operation and shift response of a prototype of a continuously variable rotorcraft propulsion system and development of a Comprehensive Variable Speed Rotorcraft Propulsion system Modeling (CVSRPM) tool.Simulate the drive system dynamics in steady forward speed condition in an attempt to build upon previous variable speed rotorcraft propulsion studies by including, fully nonlinear first principles based transient gas-turbine engine model with shaft flexibility and incorporating a basic flight dynamics model to account for interactions with the flight control system. Explore the interactions between the various subsystems and obtain insight into the continuing development of variable speed rotorcraft propulsion systems and a study of various variable ratio transmissions that have already been explored.
Engineering Dynamics and its application is met in almost every branch of industry, so that practitioners in other fields find that they have to become aware of its principles, uses and limitations. This book aims to introduce students and professionals in other disciplines to the fundamentals of the subject, without involving the reader too deeply in theory. The subject matter is laid out in logical order and covers the main uses and types of mechanics. This issue has also included the mechanical vibration and Virtual work and applications. The book gives worked examples of many practical applications and shows options that are available for the solution of problems in mechanical systems. It is not possible for these pages to contain enough information to design a complete Mechanical system. The design principles are outlined
Chaos! Chaos is Gaea, Chaos is Love of Life! Life came from Chaos, lives in Chaos and into Chaos life evolves! The present work is a culmination of the ongoing study and evaluation of variability profile of human physiology. The study on variability pattern of electrocardiographic signals (heart rate variability) both in disease and health was initiated in the year 2003 and in due course the task of exploring another physiological time series, electroencephalographic (EEG) signals in health was taken up. Incidentally, while evaluating neural dynamics in health it was observed that EEG signals follow the principles of chaos – a chance finding, nothing new, as the tenet had already been documented and published some 20 years ago! The nervous system of humans, in health, work on the principles of nonlinear dynamics, observing a pre-ordained chaotic trajectory in the phase-space, with an order in the seeming disorder. The work was presented at the European Federation of Neurological Societies (EFNS) Congress at Florence, Italy in September, 2009. It was the first step into the fascinating frontiers of Chaos and since then efforts are on to fathom the intricacies of Neural Dynamicss
This book is a comprehensive summary of chemical courses and seeks to synthesize chemical processes principles and phenomena applicable in homogenous and heterogeneous systems in the choice of process route, reactors selection and processes designs. It is a handbook for Chemists and Chemical Engineers because of it extensive and concise presentation of the definitions of the fundamental chemical processes principles and their applications in understanding chemical processes dynamics. Much emphasis is placed in defining the effects of these principles in sustainability of production processes. It is a must have for engineering students and practicing Engineers.
This book provides both an explanation of the inflation which has bedeviled economic policy in the West since the end of World War II and a micro-economic theory to purge Keynesian models of the Walrasian strain derived from Marshall's Principles.
Fashion today is fast- paced, technologically savvy, and global—and this fourth edition of The Dynamics of Fashion has been updated to be on the cutting edge. Featuring the latest facts and figures, and the most current theories in fashion development, production, and merchandising, this book provides a broad foundation for students hoping to become a part of the industry. Apparel, accessories, cosmetics, home fashions, green design, and more are explored in detail. Hundreds of examples make the business aspect fun. Fresh, forward, challenging, and comprehensive, Elaine Stone’s classic text is for those in fashion who want to be both in the now and in the know.New to This Edition:- More than 150 new full-color photographs highlighting the people, principles, practices, and techniques of the fashion business- Updated coverage of the latest industry trends, including developments in sustainability, e-commerce, and the use of social media for fashion marketing- Revised charts and illustrations with up-to-date data- Updated glossary with more than 500 industry termsNew content and illustrative examples within the following features: - Fashion Focus reports on the interesting people and events that are influencing fashion right now- Then and Now highlights the cyclical nature of fashion as seen through yesterday’s classics and today’s emerging trends
Written by one of the leading scholars in the field, American Foreign Policy focuses on foreign policy strategy as well as foreign policy politics. The heavily revised Fifth Edition offers greater emphasis on the role that domestic politics and institutions (both formal and informal) play in shaping American foreign policy. A consistent strategic framework (the four Ps: Power, Peace, Prosperity, and Principles) keeps students thinking analytically about policy decisions. And new chapters on key geopolitical regions apply the core concepts from both spheres to the issues that are most relevant today, including the rise of China, the consequences of the euro crisis, and the recent wars in the Middle East.
In the fifty-five old years since the development of dynamic programming (DP) by the brainchild of an American Mathematician, Richard Bellman, DP has offers a unified treatment to problems involving sequential or multi-stage decision making in systems with linear, non-linear and stochastic dynamics. DP describes the way of solving problems where there is the need to find the best decisions one after the other. This work provides theoretical, algorithms and applications of DP for resource allocation problems with finite and infinite horizon. Four separate and distinct problems in our societies were considered in this work. They include modeling and application of DP principles to the allocation of buses from both single and multiple stations to different routes by transportation companies; modeling and application of DP principles to distribution of goods from production centres to different stores or markets; and investment of pension plan members' contributions into toll gate management. The models and the applications should be useful to professionals and researchers in the area of operations research, optimization, financial and investment institutions, and practitioneers alike.
