Corrosion control in the aerospace industry is an issue that has always been important, but is becoming more so with the aging of the aircraft fleet. As aircraft age, they are subjected to corrosive environments over longer periods, far beyond initial design considerations. Corrosion can lead to non-availability of aircraft and in extreme cases, catastrophic failure. The first part of this important book reviews aging aircraft and the cost of corrosion. A second group of chapters discusses corrosion fundamentals and the third section examines corrosion monitoring, evaluation, and prediction. A final section analyzes methods of corrosion protection and prevention.

Entropy-based design (EBD) is an emerging new methodology that incorporates the Second Law into computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and measurement techniques. The book provides an overview of the design tool and its applications in various areas like microfluidics, multiphase flows, turbulence, compressible flows, and others. It develops computational and experimental methods to track regions of highest entropy production. Containing extensive end-of-chapter references, the text also provides comprehensive coverage of laser-based methods, numerical methods in CFD, entropy formulations, and the Second Law in a range of thermofluid applications.

Robot Programming by Demonstration A Probablistic Approach Sylvain Calinon Learning Algorithms and Systems Laboratory, Switzerland

Robot Programming by Demonstration (RbD) explores user-friendly means of teaching new skills to robots. Recent advances in RbD have identified a number of key issues for ensuring a generic approach to the transfer of skills across various agents and contexts. This book focuses on the two questions of what to imitate and how to imitate, which are concerned, respectively, with the problem of the extraction of the essential features of a task and the determining of a way to reproduce these essential features in different situations. The book proposes active teaching methods that places the teacher “in the loop” of the robots’ learning. Catalog no.

Exotic effects of slow light have been observed in the laboratory, but most currently available texts do not explore the wider field of slow light in photonic structures and optical fibers. Reflecting recent research, the book presents a comprehensive introduction to slow light and its potential applications, including storage, switching, DOD applications, and nonlinear optics. Leading authorities in fields as diverse as atomic vapor spectroscopy, fiber amplifiers, and integrated optics provide an interdisciplinary perspective. Each section addresses slow light in a different medium, namely atomic media, semiconductors, fibers, and photonic structures.

Taking a practical approach that utilizes many examples and graphs, this volume shows how chromatic analysis is useful for investigating diverse complex systems and for processing large amounts of information about system behavior, from direct physical parameters to holistic system overviews. It presents the origin and methodology of chromaticity before delving into the various applications of chromatic methods, including electrical plasmas, industrial liquids, broadband interferometry and polarimetry, biological tissues and fluids, the environment, and acoustical and vibration signals. The book includes end-of-chapter summaries, several full-color figures, and various graphical polar plots.

Modern Predictive Control Ding Bao-Cang Chongqing University, China

Model predictive control (MPC) differs from other control methods mainly in its implementation of a control action. Usually, MPC solves a finite-horizon optimal control problem at each sampling instant, so that the control actions for the current and a period of future time are obtained. However, only the current control move is applied to the plant. This work explains how this useful model permits the flexibility of acting while optimizing. It details a variety of models for one- and two-step control, explains state feedback synthesis approaches with and without a finite switching horizon, and explores open- and closed-loop optimization and output feedback synthesis approaches.

The emergence of Model Based Architecture (MDA™) and recent initiatives for model-based systems engineering (MBSE) will play heavily in how the practice of architecture and systems engineering evolves over the next several years. Rooted in the long-standing practices of engineering, science, and mathematics, this book gives readers the foundation and elementary methods to step into the domain of model-based architecture and systems engineering practices. It explores the fundamentals of systems architecture, describes how it fits into systems engineering, explains the role of a systems architect, and provides succinct recommendations on how systems architecture should be practiced.

Emphasizing a top-down approach, this volume considers the purpose and basic features of design and describes how the concept of value can provide a quantitative measure of that wider interaction of the engineered object with its environment. The book also develops the domain in which functional design takes place and explores how the system concept can be embedded in that domain. It proposes a number of functional design elements and develops them in considerable detail, outlining how they can be applied as part of a coherent design framework. For greater understanding of the discussed concepts, numerous examples and analogies are included.

Extensively rewritten to reflect the latest developments, this third edition explains how to create a system from scratch, presenting invention/design rules together with clear explanations of how to use them. Using a heuristics-based approach that provides an organized attack on very ill-structured engineering problems, the book supplies practical guidelines for avoiding common systematic failures while implementing new mandates. Examining architecture as more than a set of diagrams and documents, but as a set of decisions that either drive a system to success or doom it to failure, the book provide methods for integrating business strategy with technical architectural decision making.

With coverage ranging from the complex characteristics and behaviors of enterprises to the challenges they pose for engineering and technology, this book examines the impacts of enterprise processes and leading-edge technologies on the evolution of an enterprise.

Waste, inadequate system performance, cost overruns, and schedule problems often result from failure to apply advanced systems engineering early in project development. Systems engineering is a systematic method to manage the formulation, analysis, and interpretation of what a system will produce and whether the outcome is the one that is desired. This book provides detailed discussions on engineering design and management processes within system lifecycles. The text addresses various issues of systems engineering fundamentals, emphasizing an integrated approach. The author presents methods, frameworks, techniques and tools for designing, implementing, and managing large-scale systems.

Ten Questions About Human Error asks the type of questions frequently posed in incident and accident investigations, managerial and organizational settings, classrooms, crew resource management training, and error research. In asking these questions and sketching the answers to them, this volume shows where current thinking is limited and where vocabulary, models, ideas, and notions constrain progress. The book looks critically at typical answers and compares/ contrasts them with current research insights. Each chapter provides directions for new ideas and models that could perhaps better cope with the complexity of the problems facing humans today.

The second volume illustrates the direct connection between theory and real applications. Each chapter reviews basic concepts and then explores those concepts with a number of worked out examples.

Many of the problems that engineers face involve randomly varying phenomena of one sort or another. But if characterized properly, even such randomness and the resulting uncertainty are subject to rigorous mathematical analysis. This book provides students with a fundamental understanding of random phenomena and a working knowledge of how to model and analyze such phenomena. Basing his approach on the principle of theoretical foundations before application, Dr. Ogunnaike presents a classroom-tested course of study for using probability and statistics appropriately to deal with uncertainty in engineering problems, helping students understand, characterize, and quantify randomly varying phenomena.

Environmental Science and Engineering

It’s no coincidence that many of the issues in today’s headlines read like a list of CRC new releases… from five or even ten years ago. Just as it’s never been a coincidence that the fields of inquiry our authors pursue today often bear the greatest fruit tomorrow. Whether its advancing agriculture yield, improving infrastructure, developing clean and green alternatives, retrofitting industry, reorganizing healthcare, securing our homeland, streamlining public administration, or defining just who we are and where we are going, CRC has the resources and references to turn students into professionals and leaders, researchers into innovators and pioneers. In the classroom, in the laboratory, and out in the field, wherever challenges are being met by research, ingenuity, and determination, you will find those who create and rely on the authoritative content that is the power of CRC Press.
