The authors have combined their talents and experience to provide a complete presentation on the issues involved. Part one describes, in concrete terms, the main dynamic phenomena and how they can be observed in reality. Part two presents information about the modeling methods required to understand the dynamic phenomena and develop solutions capable of eliminating the most serious effects.
