Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,0, BVL Campus gGmbH, 26 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This term paper focuses on the idea and structure of the due diligence process and its applicability during company merger & acquisition (M&A) activities. Unfortunately 40% - 85% of company M&A still do not live up to the acquirers' expectations or even fail completely due to information asymmetries. The analytical approach of the due diligence process represents a way to overcome gaps in company analysis and evaluations.Initial point of this paper is a description of the basics in the process of company M&A and the main reasons for their failure. The due diligence is an approach to apply best practices out of the financial market routine in order to overcome these critical problems. In this light the different operational steps of the due diligence process as well as its most commonly functional applications and their specific attributes are examined.It is shown that information is the paramount groundwork for a representative company assessment. Due to reoccurring analysis failures during contemporary M&A activities the due diligence concept is a useful approach to avoid imprecise handling of information.

The capability to predict the nonlinear response of beams, plates and shells when subjected to thermal and mechanical loads is of prime interest to structural analysis. In fact, many structures are subjected to high load levels that may result in nonlinear load-deflection relationships due to large deformations. One of the important problems deserving special attention is the study of their nonlinear response to large deflection, postbuckling and nonlinear vibration. A two-step perturbation method is firstly proposed by Shen and Zhang (1988) for postbuckling analysis of isotropic plates. This approach gives parametrical analytical expressions of the variables in the postbuckling range and has been generalized to other plate postbuckling situations. This approach is then successfully used in solving many nonlinear bending, postbuckling, and nonlinear vibration problems of composite laminated plates and shells, in particular for some difficult tasks, for example, shear deformable plates with four free edges resting on elastic foundations, contact postbuckling of laminated plates and shells, nonlinear vibration of anisotropic cylindrical shells. This approach may be found its more extensive applications in nonlinear analysis of nano-scale structures. Concentrates on three types of nonlinear analyses: vibration, bending and postbuckling Presents not only the theoretical aspect of the techniques, but also engineering applications of the method A Two-Step Perturbation Method in Nonlinear Analysis of Beams, Plates and Shells is an original and unique technique devoted entirely to solve geometrically nonlinear problems of beams, plates and shells. It is ideal for academics, researchers and postgraduates in mechanical engineering, civil engineering and aeronautical engineering.

Ratio analysis as a tool possesses several important features. The data, which are provided by financial statements, are readily available. The computation of ratios facilitates the comparison of firms which differ in size. Ratios can be used to compare a firm's financial performance with industry averages. In addition, ratios can be used in a form of trend analysis to identify areas where performance has improved or deteriorated over time. Because ratio analysis is based upon accounting information, its effectiveness is limited by the distortions which arise in financial statements due to such things as Historical Cost Accounting and inflation. Therefore, ratio analysis should only be used as a first step in financial analysis, to obtain a quick indication of a firm's performance and to identify areas which need to be investigated further.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2014 in the subject Engineering - Civil Engineering, grade: 9.5, , course: Advanced Analysis of Steel Frames, language: English, abstract: The dissertation presents three various advanced analysis approaches which can capture accurately and efficiently the ultimate strength and behavior of steel framed structures with nonlinear beam-to-column connections subjected to static and dynamic loadings. Three major sources of nonlinearity are simultaneously considered in the analyses: (1) material nonlinearity; (2) geometric nonlinearity; and (3) connection nonlinearity. Three types of nonlinear beam-column element formulation considering both geometric and material nonlinearities are coded into two nonlinear structural analysis programs. Three types of steel frames analyzed by the developed programs are: (1) rigid frames; (2) linear semi-rigid frames; and (3) nonlinear semi-rigid frames. Three types of analysis can be performed: (1) nonlinear inelastic static analysis; (2) nonlinear elastic and inelastic time-history analysis; and (3) free vibration analysis. Three main resources of damping are taken into account in the developed programs are: (1) hysteretic damping due to inelastic material; (2) structural viscous damping employing Rayleigh damping; (3) hysteretic damping due to nonlinear beam-to-column connections. To solve nonlinear static equilibrium equations, the Generalized Displacement Control method is adopted herein because of t...

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2010 in the subject Engineering - Geotechnology, , course: Civil Engineering, language: English, abstract: With growing infrastructure developments in hilly areas and due toeconomical constraints of using locally available rockfill materials for construction of embankments, practicing engineers must be acquainted with geotechnical response of non-conventional granular soils. These materials are most likely to disintegrate with time due to physical and chemical weathering. In general, the laboratory investigations on durability characteristics of such materials are only made through simple slaking tests. However, studies examining the effects of slaking-induced disintegration of soil grains on thegeotechnical engineering analysis and design parameters are rather limited. This is essentially due to the reason that the grains of standard laboratory sands are mostly durable and hence, the stress-strain response is considered to be unaffected by the presence of water.In order to explore the possible effects of deterioration of soil grains on static and dynamic properties of granular soils, a series of consolidated drained torsional shear tests on various crushed soft rocks were performed under saturated and dry conditions and compared with a well reported Toyoura silica sand consisting of durable grains. Due to the sensitivity of crushed rockfill todeteriorate upon water-submergence, test under dry conditions represented the response of...

Disaster management requires spatial information as a backbone of preparedness and mitigation process. In that context, an assessment of landslide susceptibility becomes essential in an area that is prone to landslide due to its geographical condition. In this study, three different methods were applied to examine landslide susceptibility in that area: heuristic, statistical logistic regression and Artificial Neural Network (ANN). Heuristic method is a knowledge-based approach whereas the latter two are categorized as data-driven methods due to the involvement of landslide inventory in their analysis. Eight site-specific available and commonly used landslide influencing factors (slope, aspect, topographical shape, curvature, lithology, land use, distance to road and distance to river) were preprocessed in a GIS environment and then analyzed using statistical and GIS tools to understand the relationship and significance of each to landslide occurrence, and to generate landslide susceptibility maps.

For the developing world, the impacts of climate change - from sea level rise and more potent and erratic precipitation patterns to rapid deglaciation - are becoming an increasingly frightening reality. Adaptation planning has thus become critical for policymakers in developing countries as these impacts begin to have serious detrimental economic and social implications. Due to a lack of data in many regions, the difficulty of scaling down global circulation models to the country level, and the relative nascence of adaptation theory and policy, however, there is little guidance as to what interventions are likely to be most effective, especially in post-conflict developing countries that face a number of institutional capacity constraints due to years of instability. Focusing on one such highly vulnerable country, this analysis assesses the challenges facing effective adaptation in Nepal and offers recommendations for policy makers moving forward.

Master's Thesis from the year 2018 in the subject Engineering - Geotechnology, grade: 9.36, National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, language: English, abstract: Construction of building on clay soil is highly risky due to its poor strength. Clayey soil creates many problems to the Geotechnical Engineers primarily because of repeated change of moisture content. Normally, these soils increase in size and swell when they absorb water and reduce in size and shrink when they become dry. Volume change in soil leads to distortions in the form of settlement due to contraction as a result of dryness or in the form of expansion due to swelling as a result of the absorption of water. There may be the need for soil treatment to improve the engineering properties of such soil. Compacted bentonite is often used as a buffer materials and for radioactive waste disposal system. A good understanding of the hydro-mechanical behavior of clay soil is essential to ensure safe disposal.The present study reports the results on the effects of temperature on swelling pressure and compressibility characteristics of soil. In this study, two different type of soils were used. One of them was a bentonite (liquid limit = 139%) procured from Bikaner, Rajasthan another one was Rourkela local soil (liquid limit = 35%). A new oedometer was designed and developed in-house to carry out consolidation and swelling pressure tests at a higher temperature. Swelling pressures tests on compacted bentonite speci...

This Geotechnical Engineering Research Study is prepared to cover the most recent design approaches of highway embankments over soft soils. We feel that there is a need for a more detailed study for advanced construction methods on chemically improved soils to avoid excessive failures of engineering facilities. Mass stabilization of soft clay by mixing with cement is a relatively new ground improvement method for soft clay soil layers. Soft clay generally have low strength. The reduction in strength and stiffness of soft clays causes bearing capacity failure and excessive settlement. These materials may also change chemically and biologically with time. Frequently, these clayey soils cause cracking and breaking up of pavements, railways, highway embankments, roadways. In Geotechnical Engineering, it is challenging to improve the Engineering characteristics of soil so that the stability and serviceability requirements can be met. This research Study focuses on evaluating the performance of road embankment constructed on cement stabilized soft clay.

MOSFETs are scaled primarily due to increased packing density and speed. Due to scaling some drawbacks are found in conventional MOSFET. They are mobility degradation and surface scattering, velocity saturation in MOSFET, avalanche breakdown, hot electron effect, drain induced barrier lowering(DIBL), reduction of threshold voltage, punch through. These drawbacks are known as Short Channel Effect(SCE).The model of double halo dual material gate combines the advantages of both the channel engineering (halo) and the gate engineering techniques (dual-material gate) to effectively suppress the short-channel effects (SCEs). The model is derived using the pseudo-2D analysis by applying the Gauss's law to an elementary rectangular box in the channel depletion region, considering the surface potential variation with the channel depletion layer depth.

Since articles refer to other articles these, do provide a social network-like structure. Social networks follow certain patterns that contain relevant data about the current state or the development in the future. With these indications, we will try to use a social network Analysis tool in order to find such patterns within the field of sciences extracted from a scientific database. The tool we will be using is called TecFlow. The database is a partial extraction from ISIWeb.Within this paper, two hypotheses are analysed and described. The focus lies on the centrality and importance of the concept of RFID over time. Due to the actual relevance of social network analysis and new character of this paper, the analysis-results can lead to various future researches and studies, which are identified and described within this article.

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,0, LMU Munich, course: World Englishes, language: English, abstract: Even though language proficiency improves over time naturally, this term paper will try to analyze whether an individual's Indian English (IndE) will approximate towards the British English Standard due to increased language contact in an international context, especially with regard to the change of pronunciation towards RP. As the person of interest, actress Aishwarya Rai Bacchan, is a native Indian woman who became famous very quickly all over the world, it might be possible to observe a certain development in her language due to the sudden increased contact with English. Due to India's postcolonial status, the British English variety seems to serve as a model for learners of English in this country, so that this seems to be the right variety to base the analysis on.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2012 in the subject Communications - Intercultural Communication, , language: English, abstract: The researcher of this paper is interested in analyzing spoken discourse. Due to the absence of cross-cultural awareness there could be a high obstacle in understanding the message that is perfect linguistically. This could generally mirror pragmatic failure and in particular, in the classrooms.This research paper therefore aims at analyzing many conversations to the language in use in different contexts for achieving the following: - Highlighting the importance of intercultural awareness betweenEnglish speakers / learners as well as the problems caused by itsabsence.- Analyzing different spoken discourses on pragmatic failure interms of words, sentence, discourse and Intonation.- Defining the intercultural competence, pragmatic competenceand discourse analysis.- Presenting the relationship between the discourse analysis andculture.- Recommending pedagogical implications to English authors,teachers, educational policy makers and learners.As the number of non-native speakers has become recently increasing and has surpassed the number of native speakers, the culture of non-native speakers could not be ignored in the interaction between non-native speakers to native speakers or between the non-native speakers to native-speakers. Hence, the importance of cultural dimension in communicative competence has been also increasing between English ...

If you're an executive dealing with extended supply chains, you live with stressand worry. Almost everything made today is manufactured by large networksof companies. Hundreds, if not thousands, of companies provide components,subassemblies, and major assemblies to a final manufacturer or integrator.These large distributed supply chains have created problems and headachesfor many industries.This book can help you prevent lost sales due to inventory shortages, highcosts due to large inventories, work stoppage due to loss of a key supplier, andsupply problems that may be causing a late introduction of a new product.Today's supply chains are not only highly complex in terms of the number ofcompanies involved but also dynamically complex in that their behavior andperformance variations over time range from "hard to comprehend" to baffling.It's no wonder that management is so difficult and challenging. Developing anintuitive grasp of supply chain dynamic behavior is the first step in drivingperformance improvement.In this book, a system dynamics framework for analyzing complex supplychain performance is presented. The feedback nature of supply chains is demonstrated and dynamic simulation models are used to examine the counterintuitive behavior that arises from time delays, lack of information, and incorrect planning assumptions. The benefits of establishing push-pull boundaries in supply chains are shown to provide increased customer service levels with reduce...

Companies of all sizes have been initiating international transactions–mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, strategic alliances, and private placements–in record numbers. Targeted due diligence is crucial to effectively research, value, and complete these complex deals. With an evolving climate of uncertainty and new, unpredictable threats to business, it is more essential than ever before. Due Diligence for Global Deal Making is an invaluable guidebook for companies trying to capitalize on the opportunities in both developed and emerging cross-border markets. All too often global transactions fail to meet the parties' expectations, and the leading culprit is inadequate due diligence. Especially when the target partner lacks a financial performance track record and significant assets, expanding businesses must answer difficult questions, such as: Why (if at all) do this deal? What are the rules going in, and what happens if things go wrong? Where are the tax, legal, financial, and operational traps, and what are the opportunities? This book provides what’s needed to avoid devastating mistakes and to master the steps that ensure success: Expert analysis, insights, and strategies from experienced practitioners and leading authorities in cross-border matters In-depth coverage of critical topics decision makers need to understand in order to succeed in cross-border transactions–from corporate planning to operational, financial, legal, tax, accounting, and people/organizational considerations Best practices of corporate investors and professional advisers in conducting critical due diligence Noted experts discuss critical topics corporate executives–and all those involved with their company's legal, operational, accounting, and tax matters–need to know to successfully complete complex global transactions today.

A critical review of the literature was undertaken to examine the state of the art in dioxin risk assessment in order to identify areas where more research is warranted and to propose alternative approaches for evaluating dioxin risk. Areas of particular concern include: limited and variable data on source emissions to land and water; contamination of the food chain; the use of animal models and, conversely, ambiguous epidemiological results to assess human health risk.

Since the dawn of history, folktales have been serving to pass didactic lessons to the audience to enlighten their mindset.However, this literary genre has started recently to lose its superficial role due to its inherent discursiveness in representing gender identity. Thus, the book in hand aims at scrutinizing the representation of gender dual dichotomy in folktales; this book is also written to provide the reader with a theoretical as well as an analytical insight on issues that concern gender as a social construct. To this very reason, a case study has been selected for exploring closely the various metaphorical aspects through which gender clash is depicted. For the critical study of this problematic theme, recourse to the feminist-based oppositional approach is suggested in this vein to fit into the requirements of our methodological analysis.

Guides readers through the quantitative data analysis process including contextualizing data within a research situation, connecting data to the appropriate statistical tests, and drawing valid conclusions Introduction to Quantitative Data Analysis in the Behavioral and Social Sciences presents a clear and accessible introduction to the basics of quantitative data analysis and focuses on how to use statistical tests as a key tool for analyzing research data. The book presents the entire data analysis process as a cyclical, multiphase process and addresses the processes of exploratory analysis, decision-making for performing parametric or nonparametric analysis, and practical significance determination. In addition, the author details how data analysis is used to reveal the underlying patterns and relationships between the variables and connects those trends to the data’s contextual situation. Filling the gap in quantitative data analysis literature, this book teaches the methods and thought processes behind data analysis, rather than how to perform the study itself or how to perform individual statistical tests. With a clear and conversational style, readers are provided with a better understanding of the overall structure and methodology behind performing a data analysis as well as the needed techniques to make informed, meaningful decisions during data analysis. The book features numerous data analysis examples in order to emphasize the decision and thought processes that are best followed, and self-contained sections throughout separate the statistical data analysis from the detailed discussion of the concepts allowing readers to reference a specific section of the book for immediate solutions to problems and/or applications. Introduction to Quantitative Data Analysis in the Behavioral and Social Sciences also features coverage of the following: • The overall methodology and research mind-set for how to approach quantitative data analysis and how to use statistics tests as part of research data analysis • A comprehensive understanding of the data, its connection to a research situation, and the most appropriate statistical tests for the data • Numerous data analysis problems and worked-out examples to illustrate the decision and thought processes that reveal underlying patterns and trends • Detailed examples of the main concepts to aid readers in gaining the needed skills to perform a full analysis of research problems • A conversational tone to effectively introduce readers to the basics of how to perform data analysis as well as make meaningful decisions during data analysis Introduction to Quantitative Data Analysis in the Behavioral and Social Sciences is an ideal textbook for upper-undergraduate and graduate-level research method courses in the behavioral and social sciences, statistics, and engineering. This book is also an appropriate reference for practitioners who require a review of quantitative research methods. Michael J. Albers, Ph.D., is Professor in the Department of English at East Carolina University. His research interests include information design with a focus on answering real-world questions, the presentation of complex information, and human–information interaction. Dr. Albers received his Ph.D. in Technical Communication and Rhetoric from Texas Tech University.

A comprehensive overview of the internationalisation of correspondence analysis Correspondence Analysis: Theory, Practice and New Strategies examines the key issues of correspondence analysis, and discusses the new advances that have been made over the last 20 years. The main focus of this book is to provide a comprehensive discussion of some of the key technical and practical aspects of correspondence analysis, and to demonstrate how they may be put to use. Particular attention is given to the history and mathematical links of the developments made. These links include not just those major contributions made by researchers in Europe (which is where much of the attention surrounding correspondence analysis has focused) but also the important contributions made by researchers in other parts of the world. Key features include: A comprehensive international perspective on the key developments of correspondence analysis. Discussion of correspondence analysis for nominal and ordinal categorical data. Discussion of correspondence analysis of contingency tables with varying association structures (symmetric and non-symmetric relationship between two or more categorical variables). Extensive treatment of many of the members of the correspondence analysis family for two-way, three-way and multiple contingency tables. Correspondence Analysis offers a comprehensive and detailed overview of this topic which will be of value to academics, postgraduate students and researchers wanting a better understanding of correspondence analysis. Readers interested in the historical development, internationalisation and diverse applicability of correspondence analysis will also find much to enjoy in this book.
