  • Forensic Engineering Investigation is a compendium of the investigative methodologies used by engineers and scientific investigators to evaluate some of the more common types of failures and catastrophic events. In essence, the book provides analyses and methods for determining how an entity was damaged and when that damage may have legal consequences. The material covers 21 common types of failures, catastrophic events, and losses that forensic engineers routinely assess.

  • In this paper we propose a methodology for investigating the relationship between architectures of natural language generation (NLG) systems and stylistic properties of texts. Biber's (1988) methodology is used to obtain both the characterisation of style of our corpus and the division of the corpus into sets of linguistically similar texts. These sets will be used for studying the architectural aspects.

  • With the new millennium comes change. Indoor air quality methodologies have expanded, evolved, andmorphed. The focus is shifting froma knee-jerk to a more proactive response. Although indoor air quality in older buildings will continue to present old challenges, new construction is going forward with new challenges.

  • They use geological and distribution data on the island’s 1,284 plant genera and more than 2,000 endemic plant taxa to identify 19 biomes there, and they describe complex conservation challenges. The next chapter by Benny Chan and Pei-Fen Lee explores the biogeography of the barnacles of Taiwan, relating taxon distributions to coastal geomorphology and the complex array of oceanic currents around the island. Global climate changes in ocean water temperature may permit southerly, warmwater taxa to expand northward, invading habitat presently occupied by coldwater taxa....

  • Early interest in selenium by nutritionists concerned its high concentration in certain range plants and the consequent toxicosis in animals that grazed those plants. More recently, the essential nature of selenium has become the center of attention, and this element is now known to be required by laboratory animals, food animals (including fish), and humans. Its role as an integral feature of glutathione peroxidase has been established, and other possible functions are under active investigation.

  • The diversification of economic activity and labour market development have both been identified as possible strategies to reduce the vulnerability of the poor and enable the ascent out of poverty. Whether such policies are necessarily empow-ering for women has been much debated but less well documented. In this book we adopt a comparative case study approach using original survey material for three African countries and a state in India to investigate these links

  • A suite of emerging techniques, known collectively as “molecular imaging,” now offer scientists an unprecedented opportunity to identify, follow, and quantify biologic processes at the cellular level with molecular specificity in intact organisms. For instance, it is now possible to evaluate, with imaging, the distribution, magnitude, and timing of gene expression in genetically altered animals (1–3).

  • At the Kabupaten level, the average relative cash flow per worker is 74 million Rp (with 95% confidence limits of 70 to 78 million Rp), but the dispersion is high and the spatial heterogeneity among villages is considerable (Figure 18). In some villages, the added value per worker is less than 1 million Rp/year, while others produce more than 600 million Rp/year/worker. There is no clear explanation for the differences, as they are not obviously linked to either the industrial or spatial concentrations.

  • The Global Initiative on Transport Emissions (GITE) was created as a partnership between the United Nations and the World Bank to help the international community meet some of the above needs. The GITE projects and programmes are being developed in three clusters of activities. The Partnership for Vehicle and Fuel Technology Modernization (PVFTM) is intended to create a structured forum to investigate the reasons that more appropriate technologies are not used in particular regions, and what can be done to overcome the barriers to their use.

  • The wealth of data now available allows us to estimate which quantitative indicators are weighed most heavily in the determination of ratings, to evaluate the predictive power of ratings in explaining a cross-section of sovereign bond yields, and to measure whether rating announcements directly affect market yields on the day of the announcement. Our investigation suggests that, to a large extent, Moody’s and Standard and Poor’s rating assignments can be explained by a small number of well-defined criteria, which the two agencies appear to weigh similarly.

  • Drug abuse in the developed world is an international problem. In the USA, in an effort to deter drug use and identify abusers so they may receive treatment, testing an individual’s urine has become a large commercial enterprise. Drug testing has also been a traditional part of clinical care in medicine and in the medicolegal investigation of death. While scientists conducting drug testing in the postmortem arena routinely analyze a variety of biological matrices, the specimen of choice in the drug testing industry in the USA is urine and in clinical medicine, serum.

  • Based on GCOSM, the objective of the paper is to propose an approach to investigating optimal pavement preservation strategies (OPPSs) for road networks in a systematic manner. In the following sections, the methodological procedure for investigating OPPSs of road networks is first presented, which is followed by a case study demonstrating the applicability of the proposed procedure. The HDM-4 system is employed as an OES in the study for Vietnamese national road network.
