The piano may not be the ideal medium for capturing the expressive possibilities of Glass' style of minimalism, but pianist Bruce Brubaker selects pieces that work well on the instrument. Part of the problem with hearing Glass on the piano is forgetting the sound of his ensemble, and the variety of colors (and volume) they have imparted to similar music. Brubaker begins his recital of works by Glass and Alvin Curran with his transcription of "Knee Play 4" from Einstein on the Beach. It is in fact a lovely piece on the piano if one can put the spectacular power and tonal range of the instrumental version out of one's mind. "Opening" from Glassworks, originally scored for piano, works beautifully on the instrument, and flows as naturally as the C major Prelude from Book I of The Well Tempered Clavier. The two pieces by Curran, Hope Street Tunnel Blues III and Inner Cities II, use a syntax similar to Glass, with a more dissonant tonal vocabulary. Hope Street Tunnel Blues III has ample kinetic energy that gives it an exhilarating momentum.

Structural and Failure Mechanics of Sandwich Composites By L.A. Carlsson
English | PDF | 2011 | 392 Pages | ISBN : 1402032242 | 18.67 MB

"Structural and Failure Mechanics of Sandwich Composites" by Leif A. Carlsson and George A. Kardomateas focuses on some important deformation and failure modes of sandwich panels such as global buckling, wrinkling and local instabilities, and face/core debonding. The book also provides the mechanics background necessary for understanding deformation and failure mechanisms in sandwich panels and the response of sandwich structural parts to a variety of loadings. Specifically, first-order and high-order sandwich panel theories, and three-dimensional elasticity solutions for the structural behavior outlined in some detail.

Customer-Driven Supply Chains: From Glass Pipelines to Open Innovation Networks

Customer-Driven Supply Chains: From Glass Pipelines to Open Innovation Networks By Andrew C. Lyons
English | EPUB | 2012 | 195 Pages | ISBN : 3642418368 | 1.92 MB

In recent years, the supply chain has become a key element to the survival and prosperity of organisations in different industry sectors. Organisations dealing in dynamic business environments demand supply chains that support the satisfaction of customer needs. The principles of lean thinking that once permeated standalone organisations have now been transferred to the supply chain, making imperative the development of innovative approaches to supply chain management.
Impact of Long-Period Ground Motions on Structural Design: A Case Study for Bucharest, Romania

Impact of Long-Period Ground Motions on Structural Design: A Case Study for Bucharest, Romania By Florin Pavel
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 92 Pages | ISBN : 3319734016 | 7.27 MB

This book discusses the impact of long-period ground motions on structural design using the situation in Bucharest, the capital city of Romania, as a case study. The first part explores the seismic hazard situation in Bucharest, and the causes of long-period ground motions related to both the source and the site. Subsequently, it examines the current seismic design, detailing building practices in Bucharest, and discusses the impact of long-period ground motions on seismic design.

Higher Education in Ethiopia: Structural Inequalities and Policy Responses

Higher Education in Ethiopia: Structural Inequalities and Policy Responses By Tebeje Molla
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 209 Pages | ISBN : 9811079315 | 4.22 MB

This book focuses on higher education in Ethiopia, analysing persisting inequalities and policy responses against the backdrop of the extensive expansion and reform that the system has experienced in recent years. Drawing on empirical data generated through interviews, policy reviews and focus-group discussions, it explicates factors of structural inequality ranging from neoliberal policy orientations to repressive gender culture and geo-political peripherality.
Rotor and Structural Dynamics of Turbomachinery: A Practical Guide for Engineers and Scientists

Rotor and Structural Dynamics of Turbomachinery: A Practical Guide for Engineers and Scientists By Raj Subbiah
English | PDF | 2018 | 306 Pages | ISBN : 3319732951 | 14.48 MB

This book provides engineers and scientists with practical fundamentals for turbomachinery design. It presents a detailed analysis of existing procedures for the analysis of rotor and structure dynamics, while keeping mathematical equations to a minimum. Specific terminologies are used for rotors and structures, respectively, allowing the readers to clearly distinguish between the two. Further, the book describes the essential concepts needed to understand rotor failure modes due to lateral and torsional oscillations.
