About the book

Symmetry is a common standard that is very well studied in various areas of research and in this way complex systems with symmetric and asymmetric properties have emerged in the engineering area. Symmetry can be understood in two different ways: as a property or as a principle.

Also, the symmetry concept is can be used in two ways: (i) from the aesthetic point of view of proportionality or harmony, while human try to seek symmetry in nature, and (ii) from an engineering point of view to reach the geometric regularities and/or to explain a specific process in a given phenomenon.

The book is dedicated to symmetry in engineering (mechanical, electrical, civil, etc.) and aims to cover both engineering solutions related to symmetry and the search for patterns to understand the phenomena observed. The researchers are invited to submit original contributions related to engineering are where symmetry is considered in theory or practice.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Zvjezdana Tintor

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
