Conceptual Framework for Load Controlling:With Demand Reduction Bidding & Consumer Retention Muhammad Babar, Imthias Ahamed, Essam Al-Ammar
The Eclpise Modeling Framework (EMF) is a framework and code generation facility that lets you define a model in any of these forms--Java interfaces, UML diagram, or XML Schema. EMF doesn´t require a completely different methodology or any sophisticated modeling tools. All you need to get started with EMF are the Eclipse Java Development Tools. EMF relates modeling concepts directly to their implementations, thereby bringing to Eclipse-and Java developers in general-the benefits of modeling with a low cost of entry. Unlike most tools of this type, EMF is truly integrated with and tuned for efficient programming. It answers the often-asked question, ´´Should I model or should I program?´´ with a resounding, ´´Both.´´ This book, written by the lead architects of EMF, provides both an introduction and tutorial to how to leverage and work with this powerful framework. In addition to the new coverage (see overflow page) this book provides: · A basic overview of the most important concepts in EMF and modeling. · Analysis of the most important framework classes and generator patterns including insightful discussions of various design alternatives. · Examples of many common framework customizations and programming techniques.

Cognitive Load Measurement and Application:A Theoretical Framework for Meaningful Research and Practice
Cognitive Load Measurement and Application:A Theoretical Framework for Meaningful Research and Practice
This textbook describes the rules for the design of steel and composite building structures according to Eurocodes, covering the structure as a whole, as well as the design of individual structural components and connections. It addresses the following topics: the basis of design in the Eurocodes framework; the loads applied to building structures; the load combinations for the various limit states of design and the main steel properties and steel fabrication methods; the models and methods of structural analysis in combination with the structural imperfections and the cross-section classification according to compactness; the cross-section resistances when subjected to axial and shear forces, bending or torsional moments and to combinations of the above; component design and more specifically the design of components sensitive to instability phenomena, such as flexural, torsional and lateral-torsional buckling (a section is devoted to composite beams); the design of connections and joints executed by bolting or welding, including beam to column connections in frame structures; and alternative configurations to be considered during the conceptual design phase for various types of single or multi-storey buildings, and the design of crane supporting beams. In addition, the fabrication and erection procedures, as well as the related quality requirements and the quality control methods are extensively discussed (including the procedures for bolting, welding and surface protection). The book is supplemented by more than fifty numerical examples that explain in detail the appropriate procedures to deal with each particular problem in the design of steel structures in accordance with Eurocodes. The book is an ideal learning resource for students of structural engineering, as well as a valuable reference for practicing engineers who perform designs on basis of Eurocodes.
This book is a revised and extended version of the author\´s doctoral dissertation written in the framework of the International Doctoral Course on \´´Risk Management in the Built Environment\´´´´, jointly held by the University of Florence, Italy and TU Braunschweig, Germany. Modern bridges are sensitive to wind loads and aeroelastic phenomena due to the tendency to design always lighter and more flexible structures. Flutter instability is a particularly concerning issue as it can provoke the collapse of the bridge. In this work aerodynamic derivatives are considered as random variables and flutter is probabilistically approached via Monte-Carlo simulation. For this purpose a bridge deck model was experimentally studied in the CRIACIV wind tunnel. Moreover, the flutter problem is analytically investigated in order to enhance existing codes and standards. In particular, an approximate formula retaining only three aerodynamic coefficients is derived and validated by means of a large number of experimental data. This book is addressed to scientists and researchers dealing with wind engineering, bluff-body aerodynamics and bridge aeroelasticity, as well as to professional bridge engineers.´´
The Data Vault was invented by Dan Linstedt at the U.S. Department of Defense, and the standard has been successfully applied to data warehousing projects at organizations of different sizes, from small to large-size corporations. Due to its simplified design, which is adapted from nature, the Data Vault 2.0 standard helps prevent typical data warehousing failures. ´´ Building a Scalable Data Warehouse ´´ covers everything one needs to know to create a scalable data warehouse end to end, including a presentation of the Data Vault modeling technique, which provides the foundations to create a technical data warehouse layer. The book discusses how to build the data warehouse incrementally using the agile Data Vault 2.0 methodology. In addition, readers will learn how to create the input layer (the stage layer) and the presentation layer (data mart) of the Data Vault 2.0 architecture including implementation best practices. Drawing upon years of practical experience and using numerous examples and an easy to understand framework, Dan Linstedt and Michael Olschimke discuss: How to load each layer using SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS), including automation of the Data Vault loading processes. Important data warehouse technologies and practices. Data Quality Services (DQS) and Master Data Services (MDS) in the context of the Data Vault architecture. Provides a complete introduction to data warehousing, applications, and the business context so readers can get-up and running fast Explains theoretical concepts and provides hands-on instruction on how to build and implement a data warehouse Demystifies data vault modeling with beginning, intermediate, and advanced techniques Discusses the advantages of the data vault approach over other techniques, also including the latest updates to Data Vault 2.0 and multiple improvements to Data Vault 1.0
Are you a salesperson or entrepreneur? Would you like to provide solutions your customers can´t resist? Douglas Vigliotti uses a unique but simple sales philosophy backed by 12 years of selling experience, and easy-to-understand examples to show you how to provide solutions your customers actually want. Yes, solutions your customers want to buy from you. He begs you to answer the pivotal question.... Am I providing CRINGE solutions? Solutions customers will either buy, or ´´cringe´´ to say no to. Solutions that imprint you in the customers mind even in the absence of an initial sale. CRINGE solutions are not just products or services.... They solve real problems. They provide loads of tangible and intangible value. They reduce social, emotional, and financial risk for the customer. They´re overwhelming easy to understand, use, and implement. They acquire more customers, retain more customers, and tell better stories. The Salesperson Paradox will show you exactly how to create, position, and provide these solutions. It´s a solution selling playbook packed with instantly implementable sales tools, guides, and frameworks. It´s sales coaching aided by sales training. It´s sales strategy backed by sales tactics. It´s a lesson in sales psychology, ethical influence, and ultimately it will challenge you to ask yourself: Am I selling? Or, am I helping? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Douglas Vigliotti.
