The book introduces a methodology to automatically generate from any given quasi LPV model a set of invariant, canonical, and convex poly topic representations that are readily executable for LMI-based system control design.

A useful reference for professionals and students in aerospace and aeronautical engineering as well as in mechanical engineering, this book covers general jump conditions, two-dimensional/axisymmetric formulation, derivatives for a two-dimensional/axisymmetric shock with a uniform freestream, derivative applications, vorticity and its substantial derivative, shock wave triple-point morphology, derivatives when the upstream flow is nonuniform, and general derivatives formulation, including for an unsteady shock. Aside from derivatives, the book extensively covers shock-generated vorticity and a novel analysis of triple points, both analyses accompanied by a wide-ranging parametric study.

Fluid Dynamics Mathematical Techniques for Wave Interaction with Flexible Structures Trilochan Sahoo


Applied Hydrodynamics An Introduction Hubert Chanson

Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur

The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia

This book brings together research on various mathematical/numerical techniques to deal with the interaction of surface gravity waves with flexible floating/submerged structures, which are available in the scientific literature in a scattered manner.

This textbook deals with the topic of applied hydrodynamics. The lecture material is grouped into two complementary sections: ideal fluid flow and real fluid flow. The former deals with two- and possibly three-dimensional fluid motions that are not subject to boundary friction effects, while the latter considers the flow regions affected by boundary friction and turbulent shear. The lecture material is designed as an intermediate course in fluid dynamics for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in civil, environmental, hydraulic, and mechanical engineering.

Theory of Gearing Mechanical Design of Electric Motors

Kinematics, Geometry, and Synthesis Stephen P. Radzevich

Wei Tong

Johnson Controls Inc. Michigan, USA

Focused on the design, analysis, construction, optimization, and applications of electric motors, this book can be used for regular or advanced mechanical engineering design courses. Mechanical Design of Electric Motors offers research results based on the personal experience of the author as well as the significant research contribution of others. It provides mechanical engineers and students in energy conversion industries with comprehensive design techniques and practical approaches in the design of electric motors.

This book systematically develops a scientific theory of gearing for engineers and researchers involved in gear design, analysis, and manufacture. The theory is based on a simple postulate: all the design parameters for an optimal gear pair for a particular application can be derived from (a) the rotation vectors of the driving shaft and driven shaft and (b) the torque on the driving shaft. Written by a gearing expert who holds more than 200 patents, this book offers an analytical solution to the problem of designing gear pairs with the desired performance.
