Eighteenth Century Deccan: Cultural History of the Peshwas

Varsha S. Shirgaonkar

Aryan Books International, 2010. Hardcover. New. 22 x 29 cm. Presently, one of the prominent debates in Indian History remains the eighteenth century period that revolves around the relationship between political stability and culture. Eighteenth century marked a significant stage in the Maratha history since in this century the Maratha rule expanded in North India and Karnataka. This century also witnessed an important position granted to the post of the Peshwa, as seen from the sanad of Maratha king Chhatrapati Shahu in the name of Peshwa, bestowing upon him total administrative authority. The political connections with the new provinces outside Maharashtra brought with them the streams of a new culture to the Deccan. Historical records reflect upon the intention of the Peshwas and their sardars to create the prototype especially of the culture of North India. Various dimensions of new culture such as Persian language, luxurious items, music and dance entered the Deccan and blended with its prevalent cultural characteristics. The eighteenth century, towards its close, also witnessed the entry of European culture into the Deccan. The book shows how cultural dynamism was operative in the eighteenth century Deccan with special reference to the Peshwa period. The downfall of Maratha Empire took place in 1818 and hence the discussion in the book goes beyond the eighteenth century. In conclusion, the book takes a stand that culture thrives in spite of political instability and that it migrates in search of patronage. When culture settles in the new patron house, its blend with the local trend is inevitable and thus the process paves the way for a composite culture. The book will interest researchers of the cultural history of India. Table of Content: Preface vii List of Illustrations xiii Introduction xxi 1.

The Iconography of the Brahadisvara Temple

Francoise Hernault,Lalit M. Gujral

Aryan Books International & Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts, 2002. First edition. Hardcover. New. 23 x 30 cm. The programme Ksetra Sampada or regional heritage of the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) envisages studies of specific cultural areas taking into account the process of interlocking devotional, artistic, geographical and social aspects. One area identified for such an integrated study was Tanjavur in South India. In collaboration with Ecole Francaise D`Extreme - Orient (EFEO), Pondicherry, IGNCA launched a comprehensive project to investigate the multi-layered and multi-dimensional personality of the Brhadisvara temple at Tanjavur. This in-depth study of the identified area and monument resulted in the publication of Tanjavur Brhadisvara: An Architectural Study, by Pierre Pichard, in 1995. One of the inter-related modules of the project coordinated by Dr. R. Nagaswamy, includes iconographical study of sculptures, stone reliefs, bronze images amd mural paintings. Accordingly, Dr. Francoise L`Hemault of EFEO undertook the task of photo documentation of the icons of the Brhadisvara temple. She completed the assignment in 1994, and based on nearly 600 photographs of the icons, she prepared this monograph as a catalogue for the identification of the iconographical forms on the Brhadisvara temple. This monograph is the second in the series of studies of Brhadisvara undertaken by the IGNCA. It sheds illuminating light on the iconographical forms of the two capital sites of the Cholas, viz., Tanjavur and Gangaikondacholapuram. Dr. Francoise L`Hernault passed away in 1999 at Pondicherry. CONTENTS: Preface, 1. The iconographic context of Tanjavur and Gangai 2. The sanctuary-tower 3. The two lateral stairways leading to the vestibule 4. The pillared hall 5. The gallery and its subshrines 6. The inner gateway 7. The subsidiary shrines in the courtyard , Conclusion, References, List of Plates Printed Pages: 80.

Fundamentals of Finite Element Analysis

David Hutton

McGraw Hill Education, 2005. First edition. Softcover. New. This new text, intended for the senior undergraduate finite element course in civil or mechanical engineering departments, gives students a solid, practical understanding of the principles of the finite element method within a variety of engineering applications. Hutton discusses basic theory of the finite element method while avoiding variational calculus, instead focusing upon the engineering mechanics and mathematical background that may be expected of senior engineering students. The text relies upon basic equilibrium principles, introduction of the principle of minimum potential energy, and the Galerkin finite element method, which readily allows application of finite element analysis to nonstructural problems. The text is software-independent, making it flexible enough for use in a wide variety of programs, and offers a good selection of homework problems and examples. A Book Website is also included, with PowerPoint images of key figures; complete problem solutions (password protected); the FEPC finite element program for student use; instructions on FEPC and its use with the text; and links to commercial FEA sites. Key features # Simple, straightforward approach to the FEM that is appropriate for undergraduates. # Hutton avoids variational calculus in this text, instead relying upon the mathematical and engineering mechanics background typical of senior undergraduate students. This approach makes the material more accessible to students, and enables them to quickly apply the method to practical problems and projects. # Numerous applied examples and problems. # Examples and problems from mechanical engineering, aero, and civil engineering are included in each chapter to motivate students with examples from their area of study. # Good coverage of heat transfer and fluids applications in FEA. # Many books are weak on non-structural applications; Hutton provides good, balanced coverage. # Book Website, which includes the FEPC finite element program. # Readers can use FEPC, a limited node 2D FEA program, to actually work on basic problems and projects. Table of contents Chapter 1 Basic Concepts of the Finite Element Method Chapter 2 Stiffness Matrices, Spring and Bar Elements Chapter 3 Truss Structures: The Direct Stiffness Method Chapter 4 Flexure Elements Chapter 5 Method of Weighted Residuals Chapter 6 Interpolation Functions for General Element Formulation Chapter 7 Applications in Heat Transfer Chapter 8 Applications in Fluid Mechanics Chapter 9 Applications in Solid Mechanics Chapter 10 Structural Dynamics Appendix A Matrix Mathematics Appendix B Equations of Elasticity Appendix C Solution Techniques for Linear Algebraic Equations Appendix D The Finite Element Personal Computer Program Appendix E Problems for Computer Solution Index Bookmark and Share Specimen Copy Order/Buy Related Products Printed Pages: 508.
