The book "Wind Tunnels and Experimental Fluid Dynamics Research" is comprised of 33 chapters divided in five sections. The first 12 chapters discuss wind tunnel facilities and experiments in incompressible flow, while the next seven chapters deal with building dynamics, flow control and fluid mechanics. Third section of the book is dedicated to chapters discussing aerodynamic field measurements and real full scale analysis (chapters 20-22).
With many 'flexible' structures such as large span bridges, tall buildings, towers, cable roofs, etc., being built, the need to understand the dynamics behavior of structures has become a necessity for many engineers. The recent problems with the millinium bridge is simply another reminder. The many devastating earthquakes in many parts of the world leading to severe loss of life in densely inhabited urban areas alos has underlined the need for a fundamental understanding of structural behavior.
Recently, several solutions to the robot localisation problem have been proposed in the scientific
community. In this chapter we present a localisation of a visual guided quadruped
walking robot in a dynamic environment. We investigate the quality of robot localisation and
landmark detection, in which robots perform the RoboCup competition (Kitano et al., 1997).
The first part presents an algorithm to determine any entity of interest in a global reference
frame, where the robot needs to locate landmarks within its surroundings.

In many of our discussions with industry leaders, we have emphasised the need to install solar panels on the facades of new housing complexes and offices; we reiterated this more recently in last year’s Christmas letter to our members. We are now happy to announce that there has been a large step forward in this regard. The city of Zurich voted 167 to 0 in favour of renovating building envelopes in an energy-smart manner, rather than simply adhering to outdated building codes. And now an apartment building in Leimbach, on the outskirts of Zurich, is being renovated with a solar...
Java EE developers increasingly want to utilize OSGi to develop modular applications for component and service-based architectures. But tools required for OSGi implementation have been slow to develop. Spring Dynamic Modules (Spring DM) is a framework that simplifies the creation of component and service-oriented architectures with OSGi, to build modular Java applications using the powerful Spring framework.

The hot topics in the construction of any Web site such as initial design, data validation, database access, unit testing, authentication and security, J2EE integration, dynamic page assembly, extending framework classes, and product configuration are covered.
Yet without good metrics and tangible evidence of impact, the majority of the executives in the survey said
their organizations cannot take social media efforts seriously. And that poses a challenge for companies,
says Avinash Kaushik, Google’s Analytics Evangelist and author of Web Analytics 2.0, because social
media can build up a great deal of data, but not necessarily generate great insights that translate into
action and then more customers and sales.

HTML is a key part of the Internet. It has a short but extremely vibrant history.
In order to understand what HTML5 is about, it’s useful to look at where it came
from. The Internet (and the Web in particular) has been changing at a dizzying
pace. HTML has been trying to keep up.
When HTML was first devised, it comprised a handful of tags, and HTML did
little more than determine how a page was laid out. As the Web matured, many
features were added. Today’s Internet is still about documents, but it’s also
At the beginning of the 19th century the description of matter attained, what one
would call today, a scientific basis. Dalton1 supported the atomic theory with
experiments permitting the development of modern chemistry. The book “A New
System of Chemical Philosophy,” describes this new approach. In Fig. 1.1, an
excerpt is displayed. Chapters I and II give a summary of the contemporary
understanding of nature by analyzing heat and mass, the two basic building-blocks
of any material. Chapter I displays the theory of the caloric as it was generally...
