SUMMARY:

This text provides the foundation for a wide range of careers in the fashion business. Incorporating the experience of the author and her five earlier editions of Fashion Merchandising: An Introduction, this book contains a much broader and more intensive look at fashion. New chapters cover product development, home fashions, and retailing strategies. Other chapters, concerning such practices as licensing, private label, Quick Response, specification buying, offshore production, have been expanded. The Dynamics of Fashion also examines how recent trends in communications -- the Internet, cable TV, infomercials, phone and fax ordering, home TV shopping -- are having an impact on fashion. Technological advances -- CAD, CAM, EDI, bar codes, and body scanning -- are all covered in depth. Instructor's Guide includes options for organizing the curriculum and general suggestions for teaching the course. It also contains supplementary assignments and a test bank for each unit, as well as a final examination. The tests are composed of 100 objective questions each and are ready to be duplicated.

Dynamics Of Machinery

Dynamics Of Machinery

Download

SUMMARY:

Dynamic loads and undesired oscillations increase with higher speed of machines. At the same time, industrial safety standards require better vibration reduction. This book covers model generation, parameter identification, balancing of mechanisms, torsional and bending vibrations, vibration isolation, and the dynamic behavior of drives and machine frames as complex systems. Typical dynamic effects, such as the gyroscopic effect, damping and absorption, shocks, resonances of higher order, nonlinear and self-excited vibrations are explained using practical examples. These include manipulators, flywheels, gears, mechanisms, motors, rotors, hammers, block foundations, presses, high speed spindles, cranes, and belts. Various design features, which influence the dynamic behavior, are described. The book includes 60 exercises with detailed solutions. The substantial benefit of this "Dynamics of Machinery" lies in the combination of theory and practical applications and the numerous descriptive examples based on real-world data. The book addresses graduate students as well as engineers.

Thinking Through Fashion

Thinking Through Fashion

Download

SUMMARY:

Learning how to think through fashion is both exciting and challenging, being dependent on one s ability to critically engage with an array of theories and concepts. This is the first book designed to accompany readers through the process of thinking through fashion. It aims to help them grasp both the relevance of social and cultural theory to fashion, dress, and material culture and, conversely, the relevance of those fields to social and cultural theory. It does so by offering a guide through the work of selected major thinkers, introducing their concepts and ideas. Each chapter is written by an expert contributor and is devoted to a key thinker, capturing the significance of their thought to the understanding of the field of fashion, while also assessing the importance of this field for a critical engagement with these thinkers ideas. This is a guide and reference for students and scholars in the fields of fashion, dress and material culture, the creative industries, sociology, cultural history, design and cultural studies."

The Dynamics Of Patterns

The Dynamics Of Patterns

Download

SUMMARY:

Spirals, vortices, crystalline lattices, and other attractive patterns are prevalent in Nature. How do such beautiful patterns appear from the initial chaos? What universal dynamical rules are responsible for their formation? What is the dynamical origin of spatial disorder in nonequilibrium media? Based on the many visual experiments in physics, hydrodynamics, chemistry, and biology, this invaluable book answers those and related intriguing questions. The mathematical models presented for the dynamical theory of pattern formation are nonlinear partial differential equations. The corresponding theory is not so accessible to a wide audience. Consequently, the authors have made every attempt to synthesize long and complex mathematical calculations to exhibit the underlying physics. The book will be useful for final year undergraduates, but is primarily aimed at graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and others interested in the puzzling phenomena of pattern formation. Contents:Patterns: Prelude to a Dynamical DescriptionLinear Stage of Pattern FormationModel EquationsThe Ginzburg–Landau Equation‘Crystal’ FormationQuasicrystalsBreaking of OrderLocalized PatternsSpiralsPatterns in Oscillating Soap FilmsPatterns in Colonies of MicroorganismsSpatial DisorderPatterns in Chaotic MediaEpilogue: Living Matter and Dynamic FormsA Short Guide to Nonlinear DynamicsKey Experiments in Pattern Formation Readership: Graduate students of mathematical physics and nonlinear science. Keywords:Quasicrystals;Disordered Patterns;Defects;Spirals;Turbulence;Synchronization;Convection;Capillary Waves;Chaotic Dynamics;Biological PatternsReviews: “This beautifully illustrated book brings together a remarkable array of pattern-forming phenomena … The authors have assembled an impressive collection of striking photographs and computer-generated images, and the book would be worth buying for this alone … the Appendix describing key experiments is a highlight. Here the authors outline the historical development of experiments in parametrically-excited patterns, thermal convection and diffusive chemical reactions.” UK Nonlinear News “This book contains a very impressive account of key ideas and results in nonlinear dynamics and an equally excellent description of important experiments in pattern formation … readers can gain quite comprehensive knowledge about all possible patterns and their mathematical theories by reading a single chapter, coupled with Appendix I.” Mathematical Reviews
