  • This book provides a comprehensive understanding on disaster resilient housing within the Vietnam context particularly and the developing world generally. The book has identified the root causes of housing vulnerability, restrictions to safe housing development, concepts of disaster resilient housing, key issues/factors implementers and building designers need to consider, and ways of achieving resilient housing outcomes in actual design projects.The design and development of disaster resilient housing has been framed into three main themes:(i) community consultation, (ii) the role of built-environment professionals and (iii) design responses for resilience.  To achieve these themes, there is a variety of contextual and intervening conditions that need to be addressed and met to provide an enabling environment for promoting disaster resilient housing. These three themes are among the most arguable issues in recent debates and discussions, academically and practically, regarding disaster risk reduction and safe housing development. In addition, this book also provides the evidence-based design framework for disaster resilient housing upon which design ideas and solutions for safe and resilient housing can be generated and shaped. 

  • This text provides a comprehensive overview of operative dictations in plastic, aesthetic, and reconstructive surgical procedures, which will serve as a valuable resource for residents, fellows, and practicing surgeons. The book provides step-by-step operative details regarding all indexed plastic surgery cases that a resident is expected to be thoroughly acquainted with for his or her daily practice and examinations.  Each case is preceded by a list of common indications, covering most of the situations in which particular procedures will be used, as well as a list of essential steps.
    Operative Dictations in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery will serve as a very useful resource for physicians dealing with, and interested in the field of plastic surgery.  It will also provide the related data for the newly minted practicing plastic surgeons. All chapters are written by authorities in their fields and include the most up-to-date scientific and clinical information.  

  • This book provides key ideas for the design and analysis of complex energy management systems (EMS) for distributed power networks. Future distributed power networks will have strong coupling with (electrified) mobility and information-communication technology (ICT) and this book addresses recent challenges for electric vehicles in the EMS, and how to synthesize the distributed power network using ICT. This book not only describes theoretical developments but also shows many applications using test beds and provides an overview of cutting edge technologies by leading researchers in their corresponding fields. Describes design and analysis of energy management systems;Illustrates the synthesis of distributed energy management systems based on aggregation of local agents;Discusses dependability issues of the distributed EMS with emphasis on the verification scheme based on remote-operational hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation and cybersecurity.
