Dynamic Analysis of Mechanical Systems with Imp...
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The goal of this book is to present general methodologies for dynamic analysis of mechanical systems with imperfect, that is, considering joint clearances and their tribological characteristics and surface compliance properties. Two and three- dimensional comprehensive methodologies for imperfect kinematic joints with and without lubrication are proposed. In the sequel of this process, different contact-impact force models are revisited in face of their suitability to represent collision between the bodies connected by imperfect joints. The incorporation of friction forces, based on the Coulomb friction law, is also discussed. Moreover, a general methodology, which accounts for squeeze-film and wedge-film actions, including the cavitation effect, for modeling dynamically loaded journal bearings is also presented. The equations that govern the dynamical behavior of the general mechanical systems incorporate the contact-impact forces due to the collision between the bodies that constitute the imperfect joints, as well as the hydrodynamic forces owing to the lubrication effect.

Wabi-Sabi Home is a look that's rough around the edges and sees the beauty in imperfection but is at the same time creative, modern, and brave.Wabi-sabi is the Japanese ancient philosophy of finding beauty in the imperfect and embracing the humble. It is not a decorating style but a concept that celebrates the imperfect, the transient, and the time-worn.Wabi-sabi is alive and well in many Japanese homes, where patinated, weathered, and aged items are treasured and modest, everyday objects are given elevated status by being displayed in a measured way. In Wabi-Sabi Home , Mark and Sally Bailey visit home owners all over the world who understand that worn, scuffed, peeling, and handmade objects are not just beautiful but preferable to pristine ones, because they bring a place to life and make it feel homey.This book is divided into five chapters that each expand upon an element of the Wabi-sabi home: textiles, textures, colors, handmade pieces, and collections. Each chapter considers how to incorporate these features into your own space and focuses on a single home that encapsulates these ideas and reveals the satisfying and authentic beauty in imperfection.

Wabi-Sabi Home is a look that’s rough around the edges and sees the beauty in imperfection but is at the same time creative, modern and brave. Wabi-sabi is the Japanese ancient philosophy of finding beauty in the imperfect and embracing the humble. It is not a decorating style, but a concept that celebrates the imperfect, the transient and the time-worn. Wabi-sabi is alive and well in many Japanese homes, where frayed, weathered and worn items are treasured, and modest, everyday objects are given elevated status by being displayed in a measured way. In Wabi-Sabi Home, Mark and Sally Bailey visit homeowners all over the world who understand that battered, scuffed, peeling and handmade objects are not just beautiful but preferable to pristine ones, because they bring a place to life, and make it feel homely and personal. This book is divided into five chapters that each expand upon an element of the Wabi-sabi home: textiles, textures, colours, handmade pieces and collections. Each chapter considers how to incorporate these features into your own space and focuses on a single home that encapsulates these ideas and reveals the satisfying and authentic beauty in imperfection.

An important look at bandwidth-efficient modulations with applications to today's Space program Based on research and results obtained at the California Institute of Technology's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, this timely book defines, describes, and then delineates the performance (power and bandwidth) of digital communication systems that incorporate a wide variety of bandwidth-efficient modulations appropriate for the design and implementation of space communications systems. The author compares the performance of these systems in the presence of a number of practical (non-ideal) transmitter and receiver characteristics such as modulator and phase imbalance, imperfect carrier synchronization, and transmitter nonlinearity. Although the material focuses on the deep space applications developed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the presentation is sufficiently broad as to be applicable to a host of other applications dealing with RF communications. An important contribution to the scientific literature, Bandwidth-Efficient Digital Modulation with Application to Deep Space Communications * was commissioned by the JPL Deep Space Communications and Navigation System Center of Excellence * highlights many NASA-funded technical contributions pertaining to deep space communications systems * is a part of the prestigious Deep Space Communications and Navigation Series The Deep Space Communications and Navigation Series is authored by scientists and engineers with extensive experience in astronautics, communications, and related fields. It lays the foundation for innovation in the areas of deep space navigation and communications by disseminating state-of-the-art knowledge in key technologies.

Quantum Wellness
12,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Quantum Wellness is the idea that you can achieve a significant increase in the health of mind, body and spirit through small focused steps, which will, in turn, yield extraordinary changes in your life. None of us makes perfect choices all the time so, in this New York Times bestseller, Kathy Freston shows how small steps regarding how to eat, how to work, how to live in our imperfect bodies and how to stay positive can add up to significant breakthroughs in overall well-being. To do this, Freston advocates setting manageable goals - achieving a little one day a week, then two, then more - and building up to a complete programme that can incorporate all or some of the eight pillars of wellness: meditation, visualisation, fun activities, a diet of whole foods, exercise, helping others, considering yourself and spiritual practise. In combination, these will take perfect care of your mind, body and spirit, raising you to the pinnacle of wellness.

A little over a decade ago, Baron Baptiste published his seminal book, Journey into Power. The first of its kind, it introduced the world to Baptiste Yoga, his signature method that marries a lifetime of studying with some of the world's most renowned yoga masters with his uniquely powerful approach to inner and outer transformation. Since then, yoga has steadily moved into the mainstream in our culture, and Baron's unique contribution has played a key role. As millions of participants incorporate yoga into their daily lives, Baron's teachings have evolved to bring them even deeper into their own transformative possibilities. Perfectly Imperfect: The Art and Soul of Yoga Practice takes readers beyond the foundations of the practice by speaking to everything that happens in their bodies and minds after they get into a yoga pose. That is where the true transformation occurs, and where much rich spiritual and emotional growth is available. Readers will learn how to move through their lives with grace and flow, begin again when a situation becomes difficult, 'be a yes' for their innermost desires, give up what they must, follow their intuition, and find their truth north. With his signature blend of boldness, insightfulness, humor, and warmth, Baron offers what is destined to be an instant classic in the yoga and meditation world. With Perfectly Imperfect, he proves once again to be a true yoga master for the modern world.

Allure of the Incomplete, Imperfect, and Imperm...
52,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Architects have long operated based on the assumption that a building is 'complete' once construction has finished. Striving to create a perfect building, they wish for it to stay in its original state indefinitely, viewing any subsequent alterations as unintended effects or the results of degeneration. The ideal is for a piece of architecture to remain permanently perfect and complete. This contrasts sharply with reality where changes take place as people move in, requirements change, events happen, and building materials are subject to wear and tear. Rumiko Handa argues it is time to correct this imbalance. Using examples ranging from the Roman Coliseum to Japanese tea rooms, she draws attention to an area that is usually ignored: the allure of incomplete, imperfect and impermanent architecture. By focusing on what happens to buildings after they are 'complete', she shows that the 'afterlife' is in fact the very 'life' of a building.However, the book goes beyond theoretical debate. Addressing professionals as well as architecture students and educators, it persuades architects of the necessity to anticipate possible future changes and to incorporate these into their original designs.
