Advanced Materials and Technologies for Micro/Nano-Devices, Sensors and Actuators
The main goal of this book is to review recent progress and current status of MEMS/NEMS technologies and devices. Several important areas are discussed: history of research in the field, device physics, examples of sucessful applications, sensors, materials and processing aspects. The authors who have contributed to the book represent a diverse group of leading scientists from academic, industrial and governmental labs worldwide who bring a broad array of backgrounds such as device physics, technologists, electrical and mechanical engineering, surface chemistry and materials science).
Computational Intelligence in Expensive Optimization Problems
The edited book provides both theoretical treatments and real-world insights gained by experience, all contributed by leading researchers in the respective fields. As such, it is a comprehensive reference for researchers, practitioners, and advanced-level students interested in both the theory and practice of using computational intelligence for expensive optimization problems.
Ground Vehicle Dynamics
Hydrogen and Syngas Production and Purification Technologies
Insulators for Icing and Polluted Environments
Classical Electromagnetic Radiation
Continuous Media with Microstructure
The contributions to the book concern various aspects of extension of classical continuum models. These extensions are related to the appearance of microstructures both natural as well as these created by processes. To the first class belong various thermodynamic models of multicomponent systems such as porous materials, composites, materials with microscopic heterogeneities. To the second class belong primarily microstructures created by phase transformations.
Nonlinear Science: The Challenge of Complex Systems
This book is not a technical guide to teach mathematical tools of nonlinear analysis, nor a zoology of so-called nonlinear phenomena. By critically analyzing the structure of linear theories, and clarifying their limitation, this book makes the meaning of "nonlinear" (and, at the same time, of "linear") precise and concrete. The core material is accessible to a much broader audience beyond specialists.
Numerical Modeling in Open Channel Hydraulics
Numerical Modeling in Open Channel Hydraulics contains information useful for higher level undergraduate and postgraduate students of civil and environmental engineering faculties, as well as scientists and practitioners in the field of hydraulic engineering, especially those using existing numerical codes or developing their own ones.
Systems Engineering in Wireless Communications
This book provides the reader with a complete coverage of radio resource management for 3G wireless communications Systems Engineering in Wireless Communications focuses on the area of radio resource management in third generation wireless communication systems from a systems engineering perspective.
