              Piezoelectric actuators are being used increasingly in various novel applications. One of piezoelectric actuator design goals is to improve its performance for a certain mass of piezoelectric materials. Shape optimization is one important way to improve the performance of a piezo... by changing its geometry. However, academic and industrial research of shape optimization is still developing, especially with several objectives considered simul--taneously. This book focuses on numerical modeling and multi-objective optimization of the shape of piezoceramics.

              Geo-Architecture and Landscape in China's Geographic and Historic Context: Volume 3 Geo-Architecture Blending into Nature (Hardback, 1st ed. 2016)

              This book explores the concept of geo-architecture by analyzing the ways architectures are related to the local geography, including mingling or contrasting with surrounding landscape, adapting to mountainous or aquatic terrain, and selection of construction materials. Architectu...res build with such skillfully contrived strategies and techniques have become live exhibit of folk customs and served to record in profound detail the long history of mankind's recognition of nature. The combined effect is such that the architecture grows out of the surrounding natural and human environment. This book is the third of a 4-volume book series. The series develops the innovative concept of geo-architecture by exploring the myriad influences of natural, human and historical factors upon architecture. These influences are considered in three categories, namely, interaction between architecture and nature, interaction between architecture and its human users and change in architecture over time--each category serves as a lens. Augmenting these lenses is the Time-Person-Place concept applied different geographic. The analysis ultimately focuses on two aspects: geographic influence on architecture and architectural response to geography. The over 1000 pictures of case architectures enriches the study with stunning and unique visual angles. This unprecedented work will be a unique and valuable contribution to the literature. Integrating as it does the disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture, and geography, Wang Fang's voice is original, compelling, and will be much appreciated by English-speaking readers (and inside China, too, I can only imagine.)

              Geo-Architecture and Landscape in China's Geographic and Historic Context: Volume 4 Symbolism and the Language of Geo-Architecture (Hardback, 1st ed. 2016)

              This book approaches the concept of geo-architecture by analyzing the symbolic characters of architectures. It proves that the relationship between architecture and geography is not merely an embodiment of physical and functional demands but rather a formal expression of the mate...rialization of culture. After analyzing the vast number of villages, groups of buildings and individual buildings the forms of which closely resemble the forms of the Bagua (symbol of the Eight Trigrams), Taichi, animals and plants, this book finds that this kind of symbolism creatively places living and working places within the natural geographic environment and, by seeking a relationship between architecture and its surrounding environment, comes to express people's hopes and dreams, evolving slowly to take on certain cultural connotations. This book is the fourth of a 4-volume book series. The series develops the innovative concept of geo-architecture by exploring the myriad influences of natural, human and historical factors upon architecture. These influences are considered in three categories, namely, interaction between architecture and nature, interaction between architecture and its human users and change in architecture over time--each category serves as a lens. Augmenting these lenses is the Time-Person-Place concept applied different geographic. The analysis ultimately focuses on two aspects: geographic influence on architecture and architectural response to geography.

              Do firms in developing countries improve their performance through trading with developed countries? How can latecomer firms acquire technological capabilities through international technology diffusion? How do developing countries leverage comparative advantages to boost potenti...al advantages of backwardness? These questions have been motivating research passing through macro-, meso- and recently micro-level analysis. This book investigates these questions at the micro-level both theoretically and empirically. It aims at understanding the heterogeneous performance of firms in learning as they adjust to the international trade. Special emphasis is placed on firms in emerging China as well as Central Asian and Eastern European economies.
