This monograph provides an overview of the theory of stability analysis and its applications. It focuses on various methods for analyzing wheeled vehicle behavior. The authors provide both basic and advanced knowledge of the subject. The book summarizes their research experience and extensive teaching. A large number of practical examples are included throughout to help readers understand the theory introduced.
The book has several original features:
- The stability analysis of nonlinear systems that is carried out utilizes the definitions of stability in the sense of Lapunov ("mathematical stability") and the definitions of stability in the sense of Bogusz ("technical stability").
- The book emphasizes stability analysis of wheeled vehicles and their systems.
- Computer-aided methods for investigations of wheeled vehicle behaviors are discussed.
This book is designed to be an inclusive for the best practice approach to building maintenance management, where the processes, procedures and operational systems meet a high standard of professional and academic competence. It offers a different perspective on building maintenance management by presenting the schematic building maintenance value chain model and it's implementation in Malaysian university buildings. The findings show an improvement to building performance, lower maintenance cost, building sustainability and increased maintenance service user satisfaction. The learning outcomes and summaries provided for each chapter and the extensive use of tables and figures add to the readability of the text. Though the book is based on data from Malaysia, it is useful for a much wider audience, and the informal writing style makes it an interesting reference source. This book is valuable for readers who are practitioners, professionals and for academic institutions that offer courses in the building field, including architecture, quantity surveying, civil engineering, building and facility management, property management, real estate. It will also be of interest to governments and others involved in the construction industry.
