The Essential Tool for Every Project Manager For more than 30 years, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) and its predecessors have been a leading tool for the project management profession and an essential reference for the library of every project manager. The PMBOK® Guide - Fifth Edition continues the tradition of excellence in project management with a standard that is easy to understand and implement. In 1983, Project Management Institute (PMT) volunteers first gathered to distill the project management body of knowledge. Today, the PMBOK® Guide is recognized as the global standard for project management and is one of the best and most versatile resources available for the professional. The PMBOK® Guide contains the fundamental practices that all project managers need to attain high standards for project excellence. More than 2 million copies of the PMBOK® Guide are currently in use. In the time since the publication of the PMBOK® Guide -fourth Edition, PMI has received thousands of valuable recommendations from the global project management community for improvements and clarifications that have been reviewed and, as appropriate incorporated into the fifth edition. The fifth edition has been updated to incorporate the most current knowledge and practices in project management. A tenth Knowledge Area has been added to define the appropriate engagement of project stakeholders in key decisions and activities. Project data and information flow have been redefined to bring greater consistency and be more aligned with the Data, Information, Knowledge and Wisdom (DIKW) model used in the field of Knowledge Management. Four new planning processes have been added to improve consistency, add clarity, and reinforce the concept of subsidiary plans being integrated through the overall management plan to guide further project planning and execution. The PMBOK® Guide - Fifth Edition reflects the collaboration and knowieage or worKing project manage provides the fundamentals of project management as they apply to a wide range of projects. This int recognized standard gives project managers the essential tools to practice project managemen organizational results.
This third volume describes continuous bodies treated as classical (Boltzmann) and spin (Cosserat) continua or fluid mixtures of such bodies. It discusses systems such as Boltzmann continua (with trivial angular momentum) and Cosserat continua (with nontrivial spin balance) and formulates the balance law and deformation measures for these including multiphase complexities. Thermodynamics is treated in the spirit of Müller-Liu: it is applied to Boltzmann-type fluids in three dimensions that interact with neighboring fluids on two-dimensional contact surfaces and/or one-dimensional contact lines. For all these situations it formulates the balance laws for mass, momenta, energy, and entropy. Further, it introduces constitutive modeling for 3-, 2-, 3-d body parts for general processes and materially objective variable sets and their reduction to equilibrium and non-equilibrium forms. Typical (reduced) fluid spin continua are liquid crystals. Prominent nematic examples of these include the Ericksen-Leslie-Parodi (ELP) formulation, in which material particles are equipped with material unit vectors (directors). Nematic liquid crystals with tensorial order parameters of rank 1 to n model substructure behavior better, and for both classes of these, the book analyzes the thermodynamic conditions of consistency. Granular solid-fluid mixtures are generally modeled by complementing the Boltzmann laws with a balance of fluctuation (kinetic) energy of the particles. The book closes by presenting a full Reynolds averaging procedure that accounts for higher correlation terms e.g. a k-epsilon formulation in classical turbulence. However, because the volume fraction is an additional variable, the theory also incorporates ´k-epsilon equations´ for the volume fraction.
FEATURESTHE MASTERS SHELL COMES FULL CIRCLEPearl’s Masters Series has always been synonymous with the very best in professional instruments for the touring drummer. In creating new Masters Maple Complete drums, Pearl has crafted a refined representation of Masters’ 25 year history in one total package.UNPARALLELED SOUND. ATTAINABLE PRICEThe sound that made Masters a legend shines forward. With improved features and a lower price, Masters Maple Complete is the total percussive statement for the road-ready pro drummerEXCITING NEW FINISHES AND SUPERHOOP II HOOPSFive premium lacquer finishes are available in four pre-configured shell packs. To maintain optimal resonance and articulation, Masters Maple Complete features triple-flanged SuperHoop II Hoops on the tom and snares.MASTERS PROFESSIONAL DRUM HARDWAREProfessional hardware touches include SP30 spurs, LB40 floor tom legs, insulated die-cast bass drum claws, and our sleek bridge-style CL lugs for reduced shell contact and improved shell performance.- EvenPly Six (6-ply 5.4mm) 100% Maple Shells- Matte Lacquer and Lacquer Sparkle Finishes- CL Bridge Lugs- SuperHoop II Hoops- OptiMount Suspension System- Remo UT Pinstripe Tom, Ported UT Powerstroke3 Remo Heads- Bass Drum Muffler (Mini)- 10x7” Tom, 12x8” Tom, 22x18” Bass drum, 14x12” Floor Tom- Without Hardware, snare drum and cymbalSHELL COMPOSITIONEvenPly-Six Shell: This premium, six layer North American Maple shell incorporates reduced-thickness, cross-laminated plies. This 28% thinner shell produces the tonal purity and increased resonance of Pearl’s legendary Masters MMX, while projecting with the vibrant power of the thicker MRX series.Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology utilizes a proprietary technique for achieving the ultimate air chamber. It begins with select woods chosen for their unique acoustic attributes, milled to precise thickness with overlapping scarf joint seams, for a perfect air-tight fit. The wood plies are saturated with Pearl’s proprietary ´´AcoustiGlue” that permeates every pore and dries to the exact consistency of the wood for optimum resonance. Finally, the plies are formed in high-temperature molds with 1000 PSI of hydraulic pressure to produce perfect drum shells that exhibit superior tone, optimal resonance and extreme strength.
