My introduction to the fascinating phenomena associated with detonation waves came through appointments as an external fellow at the Department of Physics, University College of Wales, and at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Leeds. Very special thanks for his accurate guidance through the large body of information on gaseous detonations are due to Professor D. H. Edwards of University College of Wales. Indeed, the onerous task of concisely enumerating the key features of unidimensional theories of detonations was undertaken by him, and Chapter 2 is based on his initial draft. When the text strays to the use of we, it is a deserved acknow- ledgement of his contribution. Again, I should like to thank Professor D. Bradley of Leeds University for his enthusiastic encouragement of my efforts at developing a model of the composition limits of detonability through a relationship between run-up distance and composition of the mixture. The text has been prepared in the context of these fellowships, and I am grateful to the Central Electricity Generating Board for its permission to accept these appointments.
The need to train consultants in superior client-oriented skills will become a key to success in a growing but highly competitive industry. The Competitive Consultant makes an original contribution to this area through an empirically based model of consultancy roles. At the heart of this very practical '1+7' model is the assumption that the role of expert can only be effectively played when seven additional roles have been mastered, because of the complex and uncertain nature of client-consultant processes. This book will be of value to aspiring and practicing consultants and to their trainers.
