Abstract

ALL historical records of aviation, from the earliest attempts at flight to our present‐day Schneider Trophy and other record flights, show that in common with those nineteenth‐century experimenters our modern engine and aircraft designers are in one continuous struggle with the physical laws of weight. It is true that the early pioneers were faced with the problem of flying as such to the extent of carrying one man by a heavier‐than‐air machine a few hundred yards, but once this was achieved development quickly enlarged the problem, and weight, with its relationship to power, lifting surface, safety factors, performance, range, and later—with the coming of civil transport—financial weight in the form of pay load, have become the all‐important item with the aeronautical engineer and constructor.

Abstract

This was selected as an excellent example of one of the papers published in the first ever issue of Aircraft Engineering in March 1929. It was presented at the Royal Aeronautical Society on 22 November 1928 and then published in the journal. It discusses the characteristics and influences affecting aircraft weight, and possible developments with increasing size and therefore provides a fascinating reminder of technology and thinking in the late 1920s.

IN view of the interest taken in M. Mignet's “Pou‐de‐Ciel,” some notes on this peculiar wing arrangement may prove of interest. There are essentially three divergences from current practice in the layout of the “Pou.”

Abstract

The aim of this article is to summarise the available evidence from systematic reviews about the effectiveness of interventions to prevent or treat child physical abuse and neglect. A computerised search was undertaken of major electronic databases up to December 2005 using key search terms. Only systematic reviews were included in which the primary studies evaluated the effectiveness of targeted or indicated interventions for child physical abuse or neglect. A total of 31 systematic reviews were identified and 15 met all the inclusion criteria. They covered a range of interventions/services, including home visiting, parenting programmes, multi‐component interventions, intensive family preservation services, family‐focused casework and multi‐systemic family therapy. There was limited evidence of the effectiveness of services in improving objective measures of abuse and neglect, due in part to methodological issues involved in their measurement, but good evidence of modest benefits in improving a range of outcomes that are associated with physical abuse and neglect, including parental and family functioning and child development. The results also showed some interventions (eg. media‐based and perinatal coaching) to be ineffective with high‐risk families. The evidence provided by these reviews has clear implications for children's services in the UK and other western developed countries.

Abstract

Aim of the present monograph is the economic analysis of the role of MNEs regarding globalisation and digital economy and in parallel there is a reference and examination of some legal aspects concerning MNEs, cyberspace and e‐commerce as the means of expression of the digital economy. The whole effort of the author is focused on the examination of various aspects of MNEs and their impact upon globalisation and vice versa and how and if we are moving towards a global digital economy.

Abstract

A new policy for joint optimization of age replacement and spare provisioning has been proposed by incorporating a continuous review (s, S) type inventory policy, where s is the reorder level and S is the maximum stock level. Gives cost formulations for a single operating unit situation and outlines simulation procedure to determine optimal values of the decision variables by minimizing total cost of replacement and inventory. Studies the behaviour of this policy for a large number of case problems and highlights the effects of different cost elements, item failure characteristics and lead time characteristics. Also determines, for all case problems, optimal (s, S) policies to support Barlow‐Proschan age policy. Simulation results clearly indicate that the jointly optimal policy is more cost‐effective than Barlow‐Proschan policy.

Abstract

In the context of organizational change, identifying, and organizing the various roles of change agents remains a challenge for practitioners and scholars alike. This chapter examines how different agents can enable an effective change process. Empirical evidence from three hospitals illustrates the process of transformation and its underlying arrangements to identify agents and their roles. The findings underline the importance of designing a coherent system of agents, determining where they come from, their role during the process, and how this may change throughout the change process. Managerial choices in the cases are discussed, leading to implications for theory and practice.
