Accurate knowledge of electromagnetic power system transients is crucial to the operation of an economic, efficient and environmentally friendly power systems network without compromising on the reliability and quality of Electrical Power Supply. Electromagnetic transients simulation (EMTS) has become a universal tool for the analysis of power system electromagnetic transients in the range of nanoseconds to seconds. This book provides a thorough review of EMTS and many simple examples are included to clarify difficult concepts. This book will be of particular value to advanced engineering students and practicing power systems engineers.
This overview of transport geography explores both institutional and analytical approaches to both intra- and inter-urban transport and relates them throughout with contemporary examples. The work describes the historical development of US transportation.
Issues of competition seem to have been neglected for a long time in the transportation sector. But the provision of transport services at competitive prices and quantities may have an important impact on economic development, both from a regional and a global perspective. This volume addresses such issues of competition in transportation. Part I deals with the air transport sector, part II is concerned with the road transport sector, part III takes a look at transportation costs and, in the final part, some visions of competition in transportation are discussed. Michael Pickhardt is an economist at the Technical University Chemnitz (Germany). Jordi Sard Pons is professor at the Economic Department of the University Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Catalonia (Spain).
The Best Transportation System in the World focuses on the centrality of government in organizing the nation's transportation industries. As the authors show, over the course of the twentieth century, transportation in the United States was as much a product of hard-fought politics, lobbying, and litigation as it was a naturally evolving system of engineering and available technology. For example, in the mid-1950s, President Eisenhower, concerned about a railroad industry in decline, asked Congress to grant railroad executives authority to modify prices and service even as he introduced the legislation that provided for the national highway system. And as early as the 1960s, presidents across the political spectrum, including Johnson, Nixon, Ford, and Carter, sought broad deregulation of the transportation industry in order to prime the economic pump or, in the 1970s, reverse stagflation. At every turn, the authors contend, political considerations served to shape the businesses and infrastructure that Americans use to travel.
Human factors and ergonomics have made considerable contributions to the research, design, development, operation and analysis of transportation systems and their complementary infrastructure. This volume focuses on the causations of road accidents, the function and design of roads and signs, the design of automobiles, and the training of the driver. It covers accident analyses, air traffic control, control rooms, intelligent transportation systems, and new systems and technologies.
Pericyclic Reactions: A Mechanistic and Problem-Solving Approach provides complete and systematic coverage of pericyclic reactions for researchers and graduate students in organic chemistry and pharmacy programs. Drawing from their cumulative years of teaching in the area, the authors use a clear, problem-solving approach, supplemented with colorful figures and illustrative examples. Written in an accessible and engaging manner, this book covers electrocyclic reactions, sigmatropic reactions, cycloaddition reactions, 1,3-dipolar reactions, group transfer, and ene reactions. It offers an in-depth study of the basic principles of these topics, and devotes equal time to problems and their solutions to further explore those principles and aid reader understanding. Additional practice problems are provided for further study and course use. Comprehensive coverage of important topics such as 1,3 dipolar, pyrolytic, and cycloaddition reactions Problem-solving approach with clear figures and many worked and unworked problems Contents are applicable to advanced students and researchers in organic chemistry

In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of Quintessence Publishing, this book provides authoritative commentaries on the origins and the state of the art and science of dentistry as well as a look forward at anticipated developments in the major areas of clinical practice. Predicting the future is not an exact science; however, analyzing future trends based on what is known and can be expected is important for the purpose of strategic planning at the individual, clinical, and institutional levels. Clinical Dental Medicine 2020 sets the course in each of the major fields of dentistry, emphasizing the challenges and opportunities available to forward-looking members of the dental team. It is hoped that this book will inspire the next generation of dental students, practitioners, opinion leaders, and authors.
