This book deals with two areas, for which there is rarely a search for a common denominator: the human nervous system and the problems of civilisation. What are the performance features of the nervous system? How do these act together? How do modes of behaviour, emotions, cognitive achievements, artistic inclinations, the psyche and the self-conscious mind evolve from this? This subject is a controversial area and there are many attempts at interpreting the named phenomena from different fields. Eckhard Schindler adds another one. He directs attention to significant findings from neurosciences and applies the method of abstraction to this. The result is a hypothetical but consistent description of the system which could be concealed behind the nervous system. In the other section of the book, the human failings of our time are subject to a critical analysis. In large parts of the world crime, violence and corruption prevail. A substantial part of technological achievements is aimed at being able to commit brutal acts of war. The natural environment and biodiversity are our livelihoods, but we are knowingly destroying this abundance. We are following the principles of accelerated consumption, economic growth and the increase in shareholder value towards disaster. We have efficient technologies and industries and allow people to starve. It can also hardly be denied that the human being is equipped with a pronounced propensity towards destructive modes of behaviour. Great cultural achievements are at any moment undermined by disaster. Analysis of this dark side of civilisation is followed by the search for solutions. The idea of a largely peaceful, fair and systematic (sustainable) management of global cultural society appears to be a utopia considering the geopolitical realities. Eckhard Schindler contrasts this resigned perception with practical problem-solving approaches. The principles of the system behind the nervous system here act as a starting point. Eckhard Schindler ist als Ingenieur in den Bereichen Informatik und Fabrikautomatisierung tätig. Mit beiden Themengebieten - den Neurowissenschaften und den Dilemmata der Zivilisation - setzt er sich aufgrund eines gewissen Unbehagens auseinander. Bei den Neurowissenschaften geht es eher um ein der Neugier geschuldetes Unbehagen. Wichtige Systeme - wie das Nervensystem oder das System Mensch - nicht zu verstehen ist aus ingenieurtechnischer Sicht im Wesentlichen untragbar. Das Unbehagen bezüglich der Zivilisationsprobleme sitzt hingegen sehr tief. Wo soll man die Motivation für die akkurate Ausführung technischer Projekte hernehmen, wenn zur gleichen Zeit das Projekt der Entwicklung der globalen Kulturgesellschaft aus dem Ruder läuft?
The theory, which is developed in this book is based on the remake and expansion of an old idea. It was the idea of a central body, pref-erably in the shape of a ball, formed around or in concentric layers. Democritus was the first who took this idea with his atomic theory and thereby introduced himself to the atoms as fixed and solid build-ing blocks. Is the atom used as a wave model, that allows to interpret concentric layers as an expression of a spatial radial oscillator so you reach the current orbital model of atoms. Now, this book shows that these oscillatory order structures on earth and their layers are (geologically and atmospherically) implemented. In addition the theory can be applied on concentric systems, which are not spherical but flat, like the solar system with its planets, the rings that have some planets and the moons of planets or also the neighbouring galaxies of the milky way. This principle is applicable on fruits and flowers, such as peach, orange, coconut, dahlia or narcis-sus. This allows the conclusion that the theory of a central body as a spa-tial radial oscillator can be applied also to other spherical phenomena such as spherical galactic nebulae, black holes, or even the universe itself. This in turn suggests that the idea of the central body constitutes a general principle of structuring in this universe as a spatial radial os-cillator as well as macroscopic, microscopic and sub microscopic. Klaus Piontzik (*1954) ist Ingenieur der Elektrotechnik, Mathematiker. In den letzten 10 Jahren kam noch die Tätigkeit als Autor und Webautor (www.pimath.eu/de) hinzu. Odysseus 2013 ist nun der erste Versuch auf dem Gebiet der Prosa und Lyrik und ist eher als literarisches Experiment zu sehen.
Dieses zweisprachige Buch vermittelt die Grundlagen, den Aufbau, die Herstellung und Kenntnisse zur Prüfung von Mittelspannungs-Verteiltransformatoren sowie Projektierungshinweise. Mittelspannungs-Verteiltransformatoren werden in Energieversorgungsunternehmen und in der Industrie eingesetzt. Zusätzlich berücksichtigt werden in der Neuauflage etwa regelbare Ortsnetz-Transformatoren (RONT), deren Bedarf sich aus der Energiewende mit vielen dezentralen Einspeisungen ergibt. Die meisten in der Praxis stehenden Ingenieure suchen kurze detaillierte Angaben zu solchen Betriebsmitteln, um sich etwa auf internationale Ausschreibungen oder Abnahmen vorzubereiten. Berücksichtigt wird dabei in diesem Buch, dass sich Transformatoren im angelsächsischen Raum sehr wohl von Transformatoren im deutschsprachigen Raum unterscheiden. This bilingual edition explains the basic principles, the construction, the manufacturing and the knowledge for test of distribution-transformers, which are used in electric power companies and in the industry. Grid-Control Distribution-Transformers (GCDT) are added in this new edition; GCDT are advantageously in case of power feed-back. Most of the engineers are looking for short, detailled information to such resources in preparation of international tenders and acceptance test. In this book it will be pointed out that transformers according to British Standard may differ in certain aspects from transformers according to the German VDE standard.
Nowadays lots of people experience that their current income is not sufficient to fulfil their dreams like a car, a flat, going for holidays or a house. Maybe you belong to those who expect more from live than working 40 hours a week and solely for the ideas of other people or organisations. But what could we do to achieve our greatest dreams? Of course you could work slightly longer every week - working even more? Or you could put some money aside - but which money? This book is supposed to present another way to build up some-thing alongside your normal job. But how should that work and does it really pay off? As an alternative for your second job this book presents a special concept in its qualitative and structural as well as quantitative and financial aspects. The author successfully works with this concept since several years. He explains the principles of a business system that grows constantly and puts people in the position to gain A SECOND INCOME - from the start alongside their job to a new livelihood. Lets put an existing and successful model into practice - together with an experienced expert. Eike Clausius Dr. Eike Clausius studierte Wirtschaft und Chemie in Berlin, Niederlanden, (ehem.)

This book provides the readers with a timely guide to the application of biomimetic principles in architecture and engineering design. As a result of a combined effort by two internationally recognized authorities, the biologist Werner Nachtigall and the architect Göran Pohl, the book describes the principles which can be used to compare nature and technology, and at the same time it presents detailed explanations and examples showing how biology can be used as a source of inspiration and translated in building and architectural solutions (biomimicry). Even though nature cannot be directly copied, the living world can provide architects and engineers with a wealth of analogues and inspirations for their own creative designs. But how can analysis of natural entities give rise to advanced and sustainable design? By reporting on the latest bionic design methods and using extensive artwork, the book guides readers through the field of nature-inspired architecture, offering an extraordinary resource for professional architects, engineers, designers and urban planners, as well as for university teachers, researchers and students. Natural evolution is seen throughout the book as a powerful resource that can serve architecture and design by providing innovative, optimal and sustainable solutions. Prof. Pohl is professor for design, structural design and urban planning at the School for Architecture, University of Applied Sciences HTW Saar, Germany. After his studies at the University of Stuttgart, he and his wife Julia Pohl founded the office of Pohl Architects and the Lightweight Structures Institute in Jena, the latter of which has since become Pohl Architects research center, taking part in a number of projects on biomimetics and lightweight structures. Their works have been published in numerous reference books and magazines, and endowed with national and international awards. Prof. Pohl developed his understanding of lightweight construction and biomimetics as well as his knowledge of the structural aspects of architecture during his studies at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, under Frei Otto and Peter C. von Seidlein, among others, and during his doctoral studies at the TU Delft in the Netherlands under Ulrich Knaack. He is the editor and author of Textiles, Polymers, and Composites for Buildings (2010) Woodhead Publishing, Cambridge. He is also author of numerous technical lectures and publications in the areas of building materials and systems, natural and artificial fiber composite materials and biomimetics as well. In recent years he has been teaching at several international universities and has participated to national and international research projects. In 2011 he founded the B2E3 Institute for Efficient Buildings at the HTW Saar, which he has been leading since then, and is a founding member of BIOKON INTERNATIONAL. Besides being a member of the panel committee for biomimetics of VDI (Association of German Engineers), he is also chair of the guidelines committee VDI 6226 for Biomimetic Architecture, Industrial Design, and Structural Engineering. Prof. em. Dr. rer. nat. Werner Nachtigall Prof. Nachtigall studied biology, physics and the fundamentals of structural engineering and architecture history at the Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) in Munich and at the Technical University of Munich. With his pioneering insights on technical biology and bionics and the founding of the Society for Technical Biology and Bionics, he has made great contributions to the convergence of biology and technology, and has become an internationally respected authority on the study of nature. He is author of numerous books that have set the standards for studies in bionics. His latest book on Biomimetics for Architecture & Design, co-authored with Göran Pohl and published by Springer in 2015, is the first English translation of the 2nd edition of their German book on Bau-Bionik, published by Springer in 2013. He has published, among others, Bionik - Grundlagen und Beispiele für Ingenieure und Naturwissenschaftler (2nd edition, 2002); Biologisches Design - Systematischer Katalog für bionisches Gestalten (2005); Bionik als Wissenschaft - Erkennen, Abstrahieren, Umsetzen (2010); and Bionics by Examples: 250 Scenarios from Classical to Modern Times (2015), which he co-authored with Alfred Wisser. Prof. Nachtigall is also the author of more than 300 technical scientific papers. He is a member of two academies and his work has been
