Transfer Of Qualities from the Author: Martha Ronk. Her new collection is philosophical, asserting that people have no individual identity: they are shape-shifting entities composed of objects beside them, things that continuously affect their essence--which isn't an essence at all. Rather, it's an existence, and one constantly in flux. The collection includes poems, prose poems, and short reflections that resemble snapshots of those changes, illustrating the transfer that occurs between people, objects, and ideas, as is suggested by the book's title (taken from "The Sacred Fount" by Henry James).

Criteria For Low Speed Longitudinal Handling Qualities from the Author: H.A. Mooij. In-fl ight simulation experiments performed in 1967 with a variable-stabil ity aircraft during the author's stay at Princeton University, motivated the study of handl ing characteristics of future transport aircraft with closed-loop fl ight control systems. In 1972, the first experiment took place at the National Aerospace Laboratory NLR, using one of its research aircraft. In anticipation of expected developments in (digital) fl ight control technology, the research programme following the first experiments was aimed at the establ ishment of quantitative handl ing qual ities criteria. An appreciable part of that programme has been sponsored by the Netherlands Agency for Aerospace Programs (Nederlands Instituut voor VI iegtuigontwikkel ing en Ruimtevaart) and the Department of Civil Aviation of the Netherlands (Rijksluchtvaartdienst). In 1981, a thorough review of the extensive and valuable data gathered was started. The result, presented in this book, was also included in the author's thesis for a Ph.D. degree of the Delft University of Technology. To introduce the reader to the multi-discipl inary field of handl ing qual ities research, introductory chapters are presented on longitudinal aircraft dynamics, closed-loop fl ight control systems using non-mechanical signal transmission, human pilot dynamics, hand I ing qual ities assessment techniques, and the present status of handl ing qual ity criteria.

Heat Transfer Enhancement Of Heat Exchangers from the Author: Sadik KakaƧ. Heat transfer enhancement in single-phase and two-phase flow heat exchangers in important in such industrial applications as power generating plant, process and chemical industry, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration systems, and the cooling of electronic equipment. Energy savings are of primary importance in the design of such systems, leading to more efficient, environmentally friendly devices. This book provides invaluable information for such purposes.

Heat Transfer Handbook from the Author: Adrian Bejan. Robert M. Grant combines a highly accessible writing style with a concentration on the fundamentals of value creation and an emphasis on practicality in this leading strategy text. In this new edition, he includes an even greater focus on strategy implementation that reflects the needs of firms to reconcile scale economies with entrepreneurial flexibility, innovation with cost efficiency, and globalization with local responsiveness. This edition also incorporates some of the key strategic issues of today including: post-financial crisis adjustment, the continuing rise of China, India and Brazil, and the increased emphasis on ethics and sustainability. Coverage is also provided on strategy in not-for-profit organizations. Contemporary Strategy Analysis, Text and Cases 8th Edition combines the text with an updated collection of 20 case studies. It is suitable for both MBA and advanced undergraduate students. Additional teaching resources are also available for instructors, including an instructor?s manual, case teaching notes, test bank, teaching slides, case video clips and extra cases. All of these resources can be accessed via the companion website: www.contemporarystrategyanalysis.com

Heat Transfer And Fluid Flow In Minichannels And Microchannels from the Author: Satish Kandlikar. Heat exchangers with minichannel and microchannel flow passages are becoming increasingly popular due to their ability to remove large heat fluxes under single-phase and two-phase applications. Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow in Minichannels and Microchannels methodically covers gas, liquid, and electrokinetic flows, as well as flow boiling and condensation, in minichannel and microchannel applications. Examining biomedical applications as well, the book is an ideal reference for anyone involved in the design processes of microchannel flow passages in a heat exchanger. Each chapter is accompanied by a real-life case study New edition of the first book that solely deals with heat and fluid flow in minichannels and microchannels Presents findings that are directly useful to designers; researchers can use the information in developing new models or identifying research needs

Transfer Of Learning In Professional And Vocational Education from the Author: Viviene E Cree. Combining an accessible presentation of the underlying theory of transfer of learning which explains how to put theory into practice, this is a text which is relevant to 'teaching for transfer' in any professional or vocational context. The first part of the book looks at: * what transfer of learning means * how it operates * the implications for teaching * issues such as assessment, competence, outcomes. In the second part contributors present case studies from social work which show how specific teaching methods can be successfully used to make the maximum use of the student's previous experience. These include: * personal construct psychology * enquiry and action learning * intentional observation * critical incident analysis * reflective diaries * process recording * information technology. Information on each teaching method is presented in enough detail to allow the educator to go away and use it.

Heat Transfer In Industrial Combustion from the Author: Charles E. Baukal, Jr.. Industry relies heavily on the combustion process. The already high demand for energy, primarily from combustion, is expected to continue to rapidly increase. Yet, the information is scattered and incomplete, with very little attention paid to the overall combustion system. Designed for practicing engineers, Heat Transfer in Industrial Combustion eclipses the extant literature with an emphasis on the aspects of heat transfer that directly apply to industry. From a practical point of view, the editor organizes relevant papers into a single, coherent resource. The book encompasses heat transfer, thermodynamics, and fluid mechanics, including the little-covered subjects of the use of oxygen to enhance combustion and flame impingement. Maximizing applications and minimizing theory, it covers modes of heat transfer, computer modeling, heat transfer from flame impingement, from burners, low temperature, high temperature, and advanced applications, and more. The theoretical focus of most literature has created a clear need for a practical treatment of the heat transfer as it applies to industrial combustion systems. With detailed coverage and extensive references, Heat Transfer in Industrial Combustion fills this void. Features

Action from the Author: John Kundert-Gibbs. In order to bring a character to life, it is beneficial for animators to have a solid understanding of acting principles, and this book examines the important skills behind the artistry of creating animated characters. With a particular emphasis on a characterā€™s motions and movement, this unique resource covers the basic elements of acting for CG animation and then progresses to more advanced topics such as internal intent and motivation. Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.
