Building Acoustics And Vibration from the Author: Osama A B Hassan. As a comprehensive reference dedicated to sound and vibration in buildings, Building Acoustics and Vibration addresses the basic and advanced principles that can be used to solve practical and theoretical problems typically encountered in building and architectural acoustic practices. In addition, physical and mathematical concepts are introduced and developed sufficiently to make this publication a self-contained and up-to-date source of information for readers. Building Acoustics and Vibration is a must-have textbook for engineering students, engineers, and consultants involved in the sound, vibrations and building environment. With comprehensibility and versatility in the presentation of knowledge, this highly anticipated publication will easily fill the gap in the literature of building engineering and sciences, which presently lacks an authoritative guide on the theoretical and practical aspects of building acoustics and vibration.

Alias The Saint from the Author: Leslie Charteris. Simon Templar is the Saint - daring, dazzling, and just a little disreputable. On the side of the law, but standing outside it, he dispenses his own brand of justice one criminal at a time. In three more classic tales, the Saint continues to push his luck in his own inimitable style. The Story of a Dead Man sees the Saint in a more mundane line of work - running an office and writing letters to the editor - until Inspector Teal comes to investigate the mysterious Mr Vanney and the Saint's real intentions come to light. In The Impossible Crime, a bored Saint tackles a most unlikely mystery: a man who has somehow been shot in a locked room. And in The National Debt Simon Templar stumbles across a remote Welsh inn where a series of strange things is happening . . . another job for the Saint!
