As a Web development professional, you have significant knowledge of Internet and Web technologies, but what do you know about business strategy? You can produce a Web site that incorporates eye-catching graphics and sophisticated features, but does it truly serve the organizations needs? Web Business Engineering is your bridge from technical understanding to business savvy. Web practitioners and entrepreneurs will learn to approach the Web as a technology that serves business needs, not a technology in search of a business need. This book shows you, step-by-step, how to identify those needs and then create a profitable Web site that truly adds value to the business. The author presents a new methodology--web business engineering--that combines business concepts with engineering-strength design and analysis techniques. He demonstrates how to use this methodology to analyze an organizations offline needs, determine where the Web opportunities lie, and create an effective online solution. You will find coverage of such topics as: *Business 101--idea-to-product--marketing, sales, and support *How information supports the value chain for physical and knowledge-based products *Competiti

Computational Mechanics of the Classical Guitar describes a new dynamic paradigm in instrument acoustics based on time-dependent transient analysis and simulation of complete musical instruments. It describes the current state of theoretical and experimental research into the guitar for engineers, instrument makers and musicians. This includes a summary of the basic equations for the mechanics of vibrating bodies and a presentation of the FDM (finite difference method) model with which the true vibrational behaviour of the instrument as an entire system can be understood for the first time. This monograph presents various new theoretical and experimental results and insights into guitar playing such as the coupling between the strings and the top plate or a description of the finger noise made when the fingers slide over the strings before plucking.

This report describes an engineering project designed for a high school course. In this project, the design process is cycled twice, with declining amounts of structure and guidance from the instructor. The project includes two or three iterations of an electric guitar design and build. The first iteration guides students through the design and build of a single-string electric guitar, with instructions for completing the build provided by the instructor. Students are responsible for building all aspects of the guitar with the exception of tuning hardware and strings. Thus, students build the body, coil(s), and circuitry for the guitar. In the second iteration, student groups follow the design process to develop a prototype three-string electric guitar. Multiple options may be followed, determined by the instructor based on constraints such as material availability, budget, and access to woodworking equipment. The report includes a review of relevant literature on the topic of non-engineering based guitar building courses already in place in high schools and colleges.

This book describes the entire process of designing guitars, including the theory and guidelines for implementing it in practice. It discusses areas from acoustics and resonators to new tools and how they assist traditional construction techniques. The book begins by discussing the fundamentals of the sounds of a guitar, strings, and oscillating systems. It then moves on to resonators and acoustics within the guitar, explaining the analysis systems and evaluation methods, and comparing classic and modern techniques. Each area of the guitar is covered, from the soundboard and the back, to the process of closing the instrument. The book concludes with an analysis of historic and modern guitars. This book is of interest to luthiers wanting to advance their practice, guitar players wishing to learn more about their instruments, and academics in engineering and physics curious about the principles of acoustics when applied to musical instruments.
