Urban Education: A Model for Leadership and Policy

Product : Urban Education: A Model for Leadership and Policy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Many factors complicate the education of urban students. Among them have been issues related to population density; racial, ethnic, cultural, and linguistic diversity; poverty; racism (individual and institutional); and funding levels. Although urban educators have been addressing these issues for decades, placing them under the umbrella of "urban education" and treating them as a specific area of practice and inquiry is relatively recent. Despite the wide adoption of the term a consensus about its meaning exists at only the broadest of levels. In short, urban education remains an ill-defined concept. This comprehensive volume addresses this definitional challenge and provides a 3-part conceptual model in which the achievement of equity for all -- regardless of race, gender, or ethnicity a " is an ideal that is central to urban education. The model also posits that effective urban education requires attention to the three central issues that confronts all education systems (a) accountability of individuals and the institutions in which they work, (b) leadership, which occurs in multiple ways and at multiple levels, and (c) learning, which is the raison d'Aatre of education. Just as a three-legged stool would fall if any one leg were weak or missing, each of these areas is essential to effective urban education and affects the others.

Colonial Narratives/Cultural Dialogues: 'Discoveries' of India in the Language of Colonialism

Product : Colonial Narratives/Cultural Dialogues: 'Discoveries' of India in the Language of Colonialism
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Colonial Narratives/Cultural Dialogues demonstrates the continuing validity of the colonial paradigm as it maps the geographical, political, and imaginative space of 'India/Indies' from the seventeenth century to the present. Breaking new ground in postcolonial studies, Jyotsna Singh highlights the interconnections among early modern colonial encounters, later manifestations in the Raj and their lingering influence in the postcolonial Indian nationalist state. Singh challenges the assumption of eye-witness accounts and unmeditated experiences implcit in colonial representational practices, and often left unchallenged in the postcolonial era. Essential introductory reading for students and academics, Colonial Narratives/Cultural Dialogues re-evaluates the following texts: * seventeenth century travel narratives about India * eighteenth century 'nabob' texts * letters of the Orientalist, Sir William Jones * reviews of Shakespearean productions in Calcutta and postcolonial Indo-Anglian novels

Robust Signal Processing for Wireless Communications

Product : Robust Signal Processing for Wireless Communications
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Optimization of adaptive signal processing algorithms for wireless communications is based on a model of the underlying propagation channel. In practice, this model is never known perfectly. For example, its parameters have to be estimated and are only known with significant errors. In this book, a systematic treatment of this practical design problem is provided for signal processing in the physical layer with multiple antennas. The design of robust signal processing algorithms is based on a description of the errors and the uncertainties in the system's model. It applies principles of modern estimation, optimization, and information theory. Tutorial introductions to relevant literature and mathematical foundations give the necessary background and context to the reader. The book provides detailed derivations and enlightening insights into the related technical problems covering the following topics in detail: An overview of the principles of training-based multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel estimation. Robust minimax estimation of the wireless communication channel. Robust minimax prediction of the wireless communication channel based on the maximum Doppler frequency. Identification of channel and noise correlations (power delay profile, spatial and temporal correlations, spatial correlations of interference). Interpolation of band-limited autocovariance sequences. Robust linear and nonlinear precoding for the multi-user downlink with multiple antennas which is based on incomplete channel state information or channel correlations (performance measures, duality, robust Tomlinson-Harashima precoding, robust vector precoding, nonlinear beamforming).

Description : Hepatology and Transplant Hepatology: A Case Based Approach presents a collection of interesting cases in liver disease seen at a very busy and large liver transplant center in the United States. These cases cover the full range of pathology that an internist or gastroenterologist may expect to see in a lifetime of taking care of patients with acute or chronic liver disease, before or after liver transplant. Each case is presented as you would see it in a clinical situation where a patient presents a complaint or something is noted on exam or blood work. The question/answer format will help one through the problem of making a diagnosis or in considering a differential diagnosis and also point to the best way to manage each condition. The volume is divided into pre-transplant and post-transplant hepatology. Each case is 3 pages with the first page presenting the case and pertinent lab data and 3-4 questions (i.e. differential diagnosis, tests to order, x-rays/CT required).The second page illustrates the tests, scans, biopsies and asks for the pertinent findings. The third page provides the diagnosis and what may have been expected with other diagnoses. Here is a single source dealing with questions specific for patients with complications of advanced liver disease and also clinical situations seen in transplant hepatology.

Jellyfish Blooms: New Problems and Solutions

Product : Jellyfish Blooms: New Problems and Solutions
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The first Jellyfish Blooms volume was published in 2001. Since that time, reports of human problems with jellyfish, as well as public and scientific awareness of the importance of jellyfish in coastal waters have increased dramatically. At the same time, the severity of the many complex environmental problems in the global ocean and awareness of those problems also has increased dramatically. The accelerating degradation of the oceans from over-harvesting of commercial species, eutrophication, decreased oxygen, climate change, and species introductions may be promoting the expanding problems with jellyfish. "Jellyfish Blooms: New Problems and Solutions is the third volume in this series. Syntheses and original research articles provide an identification key for the ephyrae of 18 common scyphozoan species, document the Mediterranean-wide bloom of the invasive ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi, and address the direct effects of ocean acidification on jellyfish for the first time. The influence of climate change on jellyfish blooms is covered in several papers. New methods are presented for large-scale estimation of scyphomedusan occurrence with the Continuous Plankton Recorder and trophic effects as estimated by respiration. Moreover, novel approaches are described for study of medusan toxicity. This is a key reference for students and professional marine biologists, oceanographers, and fishery scientists and managers.

Individual Criminal Responsibility for Core International Crimes: Selected Pertinent Issues

Product : Individual Criminal Responsibility for Core International Crimes: Selected Pertinent Issues
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The concept of individual criminal responsibility for core international crimes is, by now, a well-established principle in international criminal law. However, while the general principle behind the concept is by and large unproblematic, its practical application underscores its complexity. The aim of this book is to examine three pertinent issues relating to the concept of individual criminal responsibility for core international crimes: (i) The joint criminal enterprise doctrine; (ii) The defining criteria of international criminal courts, for the purposes of an evaluation of the lifting of state official immunity for core international crimes, in the light of the findings of the ICJ in the Arrest Warrant case; and (iii) The imposition of individual criminal responsibility for terrorism as a crime against humanity, both in international law and in relation to the ICC Statute.

Encapsulation Technologies for Active Food Ingredients and Food Processing

Product : Encapsulation Technologies for Active Food Ingredients and Food Processing
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Consumers prefer food products that are tasty, healthy and convenient. Encapsulation is an important way to meet these demands by delivering food ingredients at the right time and right place. For example, encapsulates may allow flavour retention, mask bad tasting or bad smelling components, stabilize food ingredients and/or increase their bioavailability. Encapsulation may also be used to immobilise cells or enzymes in the production of food materials or products, such as fermentation or metabolite production. This book provides a detailed overview of technologies for preparing and characterisation of encapsulates for food active ingredients to be used in food products, food processing or food production. The book is aimed to inform people who work in the academia or R&D of companies on delivery of food compounds via encapsulation and on food processing using immobilized cells or enzymes, with both a limited and an advantaged knowledge of the field. The structure of the book is according to the use of encapsulates for a specific application. Emphasis has been put to strategy, since encapsulation technologies may change. Most chapters include application possibilities of the encapsulation technologies in specific food products or processes. The first part of the book reviews general technologies, food-grade materials and characterization methods for encapsulates. The second part of the book, discusses encapsulates of active ingredients (i.e. aroma, fish oil, minerals, vitamins, peptides, proteins, probiotics) for specific food applications. The last part of the book describes immobilization technologies of cells and enzymes for use within food fermentation processes (like beer, wine, dairy and meat) and food production (e.g., sugar conversion, production of organic acids or amino acids, and hydrolysis of triglycerides). Edited by two leading experts in the field, Encapsulation Technologies for Food Active Ingredients and Food Processing will be a valuable reference source for those working in the academia or food industry. The editors work either in industry or university, and they have brought together in this book contributions from both fields. Dr. Nicolaas Jan (Klaas-Jan) Zuidam is leading the skillbase group a Controlled Delivery of Food Activesa (TM) and is a member of the management team of the Flavour Generation & Delivery department within Unilever Research and Development in Vlaardingen, The Netherlands. Since 1990, he has been working on encapsulation, respectively, in the area of pharmaceutics, gene therapy, laundry and foods. He is an author of more than 35 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and holds 2 patents. Dr. Viktor A. Nedovic is an associate professor at the Department of Food Technology and Biochemistry, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Belgrade, Belgrade, Republic of Serbia.

Constraint Theory: Multidimensional Mathematical Model Management

Product : Constraint Theory: Multidimensional Mathematical Model Management
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The enormous potential of digital computation to manage new complex systems is impeded by exponential increases in complexity. As the model's dimensionality increases from hundreds to thousands of variables, and as submodels constructed by diverse technical teams are integrated into the total model, the model is likely to become inconsistent and even more likely, the computational requests on the model become unallowable. This text analyzes the way constraint theory employs bipartite graphs and constraint matrices to detect and correct these well-posed problems. It also presents the process of locating the "kernel of constraint," literally trillions of times faster than a random search, determining consistency and compatibility within seconds. This text is an invaluable reference to all engineers, mathematicians and managers concerned with modeling.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "New Visions of Nature" focuses on the emergence of these new visions of complex nature in three domains. The first selection of essays reflects public visions of nature, that is, nature as it is experienced, encountered, and instrumentalized by diverse publics. The second selection zooms in on micro nature and explores the world of contemporary genomics. The final section returns to the macro world and discusses the ethics of place in present-day landscape philosophy and environmental ethics. The contributions to this volume explore perceptual and conceptual boundaries between the human and the natural, or between an a out therea (TM) and a in here.a (TM) They attempt to specify how nature has been publicly and genomically constructed, known and described through metaphors and re-envisioned in terms of landscape and place. By parsing out and rendering explicit these divergent views, the volume asks for a re-thinking of our relationship with nature.

Transforming Enterprise Cloud Services

Product : Transforming Enterprise Cloud Services
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Transforming Enterprise Cloud Services addresses the fundamental ideology of Cloud Services and how enterprises in commercial, federal, and defense industries can transform their current information technology and management models to adopt this new method. It goes beyond the mere description of service frameworks in relation to cloud technologies and operations and provides practical path-forward solutions for identified challenges. For instance, as organizations transform their data and service models to compete in a new environment where data and services coexist with others in a public-held eco-system, enterprises have to face the challenge of data synthesis from a massive number of sources. One answer to this issue relies on a cross-organizational policy and technology coordination that can ensure that data will not be reproduced or manipulated by unauthorized entities. Transforming Enterprise Cloud Services explains how organizations can justify their current practices to take advantage of such collaboration synthesis securely, safely, reliably, and cost-effectively. Transforming Enterprise Cloud Services elucidates the service-oriented nature of Cloud Services and identifies issues and challenges from clients' and vendors' perspectives. It also portrays how enterprise operators can successfully deploy their IT environment from both business and technical perspectives to enable massive scalability, high resilience, enforced security, and collaborative dynamics.

Omnidirectional Inductive Powering for Biomedical Implants

Product : Omnidirectional Inductive Powering for Biomedical Implants
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Omnidirectional Inductive Powering for Biomedical Implants investigates the feasibility of inductive powering for capsule endoscopy and freely moving systems in general. The main challenge is the random position and orientation of the power receiving system with respect to the emitting magnetic field. Where classic inductive powering assumes a predictable or fixed alignment of the respective coils, the remote system is now free to adopt just any orientation while still maintaining full power capabilities. Before elaborating on different approaches towards omnidirectional powering, the design and optimisation of a general inductive power link is discussed in all its aspects. Special attention is paid to the interaction of the inductive power link with the patient's body. Putting theory into practice, the implementation of an inductive power link for a capsule endoscope is included in a separate chapter.

Product : Stage and Screen: Adaptation Theory from 1916 to 2000
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Far too often young theater and film artists, as well as educators, make the jump from film to theater without being fully aware of the ways in which the qualities of each medium affect content and artistic expression. Starting with a history of the relationship between theater and film, the collection includes essays from a variety of writers, directors, and theorists by examining the differences between working in, and creating for, drama and film. The playwright Bernard Shaw looks at the differences between the two industries, audiences, and writing processes affect the author's artistic control. Critic-theorists like Siegfried Kracauer and Susan Sontag consider the similarities and differences that arise from the intrinsic qualities of each medium, touching on structure, technique, and dialogue, as well as audience experience. Professor Cardullo's collection provides a theoretical and practical foundation for understanding the effect that film and drama have had, and continue to have, on each other's development.

Real Options Theory

Product : Real Options Theory
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Real options theory has attracted significant interest in the field of strategic management. Advocates of the approach emphasize that importing concepts from financial economics holds out the potential of yielding new insights on strategic decision-making under uncertainty as well as boundary-of-the-firm issues that are the focus of competitive and corporate strategy. While considerable progress has been made in conceptualizing different types of real options for various strategic investments, considerably less has been done to empirically validate the core propositions of real options theory. As a result there is much debate about the merits and promise of real options in strategy. In light of the recent interest in real options as well as these trends in the field, this volume examines the ways in which real options theory can contribute to strategic management. This volume offers conceptual pieces that trace out pathways for the theory to move forward and presents new research on the implications of real options for strategic investment, organization, and firm performance. The compendium synthesizes and critiques the research on real options as well as offers a catalyst for further research on this theory in the strategy field. *Seeks to examine the ways in which real options theory can contribute to strategic management. *Includes conceptual pieces that unearth some of the key stumbling blocks and trace out pathways for real options theory to move forward *Presents theoretical and empirical analyses of real options in different strategic contexts.

International Handbook of Historical Archaeology

Product : International Handbook of Historical Archaeology
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In studying the past, archaeologists have focused on the material remains of our ancestors. Prehistorians generally have only artifacts to study and rely on the diverse material record for their understanding of past societies and their behavior. Those involved in studying historically documented cultures not only have extensive material remains but also contemporary texts, images, and a range of investigative technologies to enable them to build a broader and more reflexive picture of how past societies, communities, and individuals operated and behaved. Increasingly, historical archaeology refers not to a particular period, place, or a method, but rather an approach that interrogates the tensions between artifacts and texts irrespective of context. In short, historical archaeology provides direct evidence for how humans have shaped the world we live in today. Historical archaeology is a branch of global archaeology that has grown in the last 40 years from its North American base into an increasingly global community of archaeologists each studying their area of the world in a historical context. Where historical archaeology started as part of the study of the post-Columbian societies of the United States and Canada, it has now expanded to interface with the post-medieval archaeologies of Europe and the diverse post-imperial experiences of Africa, Latin America, and Australasia. The 36 essays in the International Handbook of Historical Archaeology have been specially commissioned from the leading researchers in their fields, creating a wide-ranging digest of the increasingly global field of historical archaeology. The volume is divided into two sections, the first reviewing the key themes, issues, and approaches of historical archaeology today, and the second containing a series of case studies charting the development and current state of historical archaeological practice around the world. This key reference work captures the energy and diversity of this global discipline today.

Planning and Designing Research Animal Facilities

Product : Planning and Designing Research Animal Facilities
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Research institutions have or are planning to build, expand and renovate animal research facilities to keep up with demands of biomedical research caused in part by growth in the use of genetically altered rodents and the upsurge of research in infectious diseases. Properly designed facilities greatly facilitate effective management and high quality day-to-day animal care that is required to optimally support animal research and testing. There are multiple solutions to address the myriad of factors that influence the design and construction of research animal facilities. There is no "best" design applicable for all facilities and arguably not even a single "best" design for a given facility. For this reason, this is not intended to be a "how to" book. The goal is to cover the basic programmatic requirements of animal research facilities, provide ideas for meeting those requirements while, hopefully, stimulating the creative process in which designers in consultation with those who work in research animal facilities generate even better ideas. That is how progress has been made and will continue to be made. * Focuses primarily on biomedical research and development facilities * Facilitates communication between the various disciplines involved in planning and designing animal facilities by providing contemporary information, and stimulating creativity that will help lead to wise decisions and advance the knowledge base for planning, design and constructing research animal facilities

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book describes microbially induced sedimentary structures as new group in the Classification of Primary Sedimentary Structures. Those structures rise from the interaction of benthic microorganisms with physical sediment dynamics caused by waves and currents. We can observe the formation of those features today in modern coastal settings, where the structures are much more common than stromatolites. However, fossil structures occur since the earliest Archean, and are abundant throughout Earth history. The structures constitute a significant archive for the understanding of Earth 's earliest worlds, and are important biosignatures for the detection of life on other planets. This book is for sedimentologists, paleontologists, microbiologists, and geobiologists likewise.

Nonparametric Regression Methods for Longitudinal Data Analysis: Mixed-Effects Modeling Approaches

Product : Nonparametric Regression Methods for Longitudinal Data Analysis: Mixed-Effects Modeling Approaches
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Incorporates mixed-effects modeling techniques for more powerful and efficient methods This book presents current and effective nonparametric regression techniques for longitudinal data analysis and systematically investigates the incorporation of mixed-effects modeling techniques into various nonparametric regression models. The authors emphasize modeling ideas and inference methodologies, although some theoretical results for the justification of the proposed methods are presented. With its logical structure and organization, beginning with basic principles, the text develops the foundation needed to master advanced principles and applications. Following a brief overview, data examples from biomedical research studies are presented and point to the need for nonparametric regression analysis approaches. Next, the authors review mixed-effects models and nonparametric regression models, which are the two key building blocks of the proposed modeling techniques. The core section of the book consists of four chapters dedicated to the major nonparametric regression methods: local polynomial, regression spline, smoothing spline, and penalized spline. The next two chapters extend these modeling techniques to semiparametric and time varying coefficient models for longitudinal data analysis. The final chapter examines discrete longitudinal data modeling and analysis. Each chapter concludes with a summary that highlights key points and also provides bibliographic notes that point to additional sources for further study. Examples of data analysis from biomedical research are used to illustrate the methodologies contained throughout the book. Technical proofs are presented in separate appendices. With its focus on solving problems, this is an excellent textbook for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in longitudinal data analysis. It is also recommended as a reference for biostatisticians and other theoretical and applied research statisticians with an interest in longitudinal data analysis. Not only do readers gain an understanding of the principles of various nonparametric regression methods, but they also gain a practical understanding of how to use the methods to tackle real-world problems.

Water Requirements for Irrigation and the Environment

Product : Water Requirements for Irrigation and the Environment
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Irrigated agriculture produces about 40% of all food and fibre on about 16% of all cropped land. As such, irrigated agriculture is a productive user of resources; both in terms of yield per cropped area and in yield per volume of water consumed. Many irrigation projects, however, use (divert or withdraw) much more water than consumed by the crop. The non-consumed fraction of the water may cause a variety of undesirable effects ranging from water-logging and salinity within the irrigated area to downstram water pollution. This book discusses all components of the water balance of an irrigated area; evapotranspiration (Ch.2), effective precipitation (Ch.3) and capillary rise from the groundwater table (Ch.4). Chapter 5 then combines all components into a water management strategy that balances actual evapotranspiration (and thus crop yield) with the groundwater balance of the irrigated area (for a substainable environment). Chapter 6 presents CRIWAR 3.0, a simulation program that combines all water balance components into a single simulation procedure. The chapter describes the use of the CRIWAR software for developing water requirement tables and other useful information based on the selected water management strategy. This version greatly expands upon the capabilities of previously published programs.

Advanced Technologies in Biopharmaceutical Processing

Product : Advanced Technologies in Biopharmaceutical Processing
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : An increasing number of pharmaceuticals in human and veterinary medicine are being developed using advanced genetic and other methods that focus on modification of somatic and embryonic cells. These methods, in the setting of drug manufacture, call for new processes that go beyond the traditional unit processes of chemical and biological production, such as batch submerged culture. This book is the first to describe in detail these advanced biological processes and show how they are applied to the production of biopharmaceuticals, from product generation and purification to fill-finish operations. The work explains how technologies developed in the last decade function similarly to unit operations for producing advanced biopharmaceuticals, such as hormones, cytokines, therapeutic enzymes, modified proteins, and transgenic products - to name a few. From large-scale animal cell bioreactors to patient-customized products, this volume describes the effects of new technologies on biopharmaceutical processes and guides users on how to apply new technologies in process development.

Secondary Schizophrenia

Product : Secondary Schizophrenia
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Schizophrenia may not be a single disease, but the result of a diverse set of related conditions. Modern neuroscience is beginning to reveal some of the genetic and environmental underpinnings of schizophrenia; however, an approach less well travelled is to examine the medical disorders that produce symptoms resembling schizophrenia. This book is the first major attempt to bring together the diseases that produce what has been termed 'secondary schizophrenia'. International experts from diverse backgrounds ask the questions: does this medical disorder, or drug, or condition cause psychosis? If yes, does it resemble schizophrenia? What mechanisms form the basis of this relationship? What implications does this understanding have for aetiology and treatment? The answers are a feast for clinicians and researchers of psychosis and schizophrenia. They mark the next step in trying to meet the most important challenge to modern neuroscience understanding and conquering this most mysterious of human diseases.

Regionalisation, Growth, and Economic Integration

Product : Regionalisation, Growth, and Economic Integration
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The purpose of this book is to analyse the process of regionalisation and to plot its future development. Regionalisation is a common feature of the changing territorial organisation of European states today. Regionalisation alone, however, cannot produce any of the benefits we attribute to it without looking into the conditions in which it occurs. Therefore, this book tackles the following questions, bringing together theory and empirical applications: What are the main determinants and implications for regional policy? How does economic policy affect the growth and integration process? Why is innovation important for regional economic development? Why is the regional dimension important for the innovation promotion? What has been our policy response so far and what lesson did we learn from it? And finally, what are our action lines for the future?

Plant-Plant Allelopathic Interactions: Phenolic Acids, Cover Crops and Weed Emergence

Product : Plant-Plant Allelopathic Interactions: Phenolic Acids, Cover Crops and Weed Emergence
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In an effort to implement conservation measures farmers have used a variety of production methods, including the use of reduced or zero tillage and cover crops. One benefit of these production methods has been early season weed control. The literature suggests that a variety of mechanisms may be involved, among them the allelopathic effects of phenolic acids. This retrospective analysis addresses the following: How likely are phenolic acid concentrations and environmental conditions in wheat no-till cropping systems for the inhibition of annual broadleaf weed emergence? and Do phenolic acids have a dominant role or are they just one component of a larger promoter/modifier/inhibitor complex? The book covers allelopathic plant-plant interactions, laboratory and field experiments, and future research. It uses a journal format, provides justifications for procedures used, if-then hypotheses, and cons and pros so that readers can reach their own conclusions.

Tensegrity Systems

Product : Tensegrity Systems
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Tensegrity Systems discusses analytical tools to design energy efficient and lightweight structures employing the concept of a oetensegrity.a This word is Buckminister Fuller's contraction of the words a oeTensilea and a oeIntegrity, a which suggests that integrity or, as we would say, stability of the structure comes from tension. In a tensegrity structure the rigid bodies (the bars) might not have any contact, thus providing extraordinary freedom to control shape, by controlling only tendons. This book will provide both static and dynamic analysis of special tensegrity structural concepts, which are motivated by biological material architecture. This will be the first book written to attempt to integrate structure and control design. All other books on structure design and books on control design assume these are independent topics, but performance can be greatly improved if the dynamics of the structure and the dynamics of the controls are coordinated to reduce the control efforts required to accomplish the system performance requirements.

Vibrations of Thick Cylindrical Structures

Product : Vibrations of Thick Cylindrical Structures
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Due to strong potential applications and more demanding requirements imposed upon long and thick cylindrical structures, there has been increasing research and development activities during recent years in the field of vibration and passive vibration control of these types of structures. An important step in the study of cylindrical structures is the determination of their vibration modal characteristics. This modal information plays a key role in the design and vibration suppression of these structures when subjected to dynamic excitations. Most reported studies on the dynamic response of cylindrical structures have been restricted to the application of the shell theories. These theories are based on a number of simplifying assumptions. The most important of which is, the considered shell must be relatively thin to assume constant stresses within the cylinder. Therefore, due to this limitation, shell theories are inadequate to accurately describe all possible vibration modes in thick cylindrical structures. The primary scope of this book is to address these problems by applying the theory of elasto-dynamics.
