Recent Advances in Mechatronic

Author(s) : Roman Szewczyk
Publisher : springer
Date : 2007
Pages : 693
Format : PDF
ISBN-10 : 3540739556

Mechatronics is the synergistic combination of precision engineering, electronics, photonics and IT engineering. The main research task for mechatronics is development and control of advanced hybrid systems covering all these fields and supported by interdisciplinary studies.

This book presents recent state of advances in mechatronics presented on the 7th International Conference Mechatronics 2007, hosted at the Faculty of Mechatronics, Warsaw University of Technology, Poland. The chosen topics of the conference included: Nanotechnology, Automatic Control and Robotics, Biomedical Engineering, Design Manufacturing and Testing of MEMS, Metrology, Photonics, Mechatronic Products. The selected papers give an overview of the state-of-the-art and present new research results and prospects of the future development in this interdisciplinary field of mechatronic systems. This book will provide up-to-date and useful knowledge for researchers and engineers involved in mechatronics and related fields.

Fluid Mechanics for Engineers: A Graduate Textbook

Author(s): Meinhard T. Schobeiri
Publisher: Springer
Date : 2010
Pages : 495
Format : PDF
ISBN-10 : 3642115934

The contents of this book covers the material required in the Fluid Mechanics Graduate Core Course (MEEN-621) and in Advanced Fluid Mechanics, a Ph.D-level elective course (MEEN-622), both of which I have been teaching at Texas A&M University for the past two decades. While there are numerous undergraduate fluid mechanics texts on the market for engineering students and instructors to choose from, there are only limited texts that comprehensively address the particular needs of graduate engineering fluid mechanics courses. To complement the lecture materials, the instructors more often recommend several texts, each of which treats special topics of fluid mechanics. This circumstance and the need to have a textbook that covers the materials needed in the above courses gave the impetus to provide the graduate engineering community with a coherent textbook that comprehensively addresses their needs for an advanced fluid mechanics text. Although this text book is primarily aimed at mechanical engineering students, it is equally suitable for aerospace engineering, civil engineering, other engineering disciplines, and especially those practicing professionals who perform CFD-simulation on a routine basis and would like to know more about the underlying physics of the commercial codes they use. Furthermore, it is suitable for self study, provided that the reader has a sufficient knowledge of calculus and differential equations.

Plates and FEM: Surprises and Pitfalls

Author(s): J. Blaauwendraad
Publisher: springer
Date : 2010
Pages : 418
Format : pdf
ISBN-10 : 9048135958

This textbook aims to be the bridge between plate theory and FE-software. Structural engineers must translate elastic analysis results into economic structure dimensions and reinforcement, which raises difficulties. Not all engineers are well enough equipped for the increasingly easy-to-use powerful programs. The problem is not lack of FE-knowledge, but rather ignorance of plate behaviour. Therefore, the book starts with classical plate theory for membrane and bending states, and proceeds to FE-practice. The text can be used for university courses, acts as practical preparation for the engineering profession, and as a guide to structural designers.

The Foundations of Signal Integrity

Author(s): Paul G. Huray
Publisher: Wiley-IEEE Press
Date : 2009
Pages : 339
Format : PDF
ISBN-10 : 0470343605

The first book to focus on the electromagnetic basis of signal integrity

The Foundations of Signal Integrity is the first of its kind—a reference that examines the physical foundation of system integrity based on electromagnetic theory derived from Maxwell's Equations. Drawing upon the cutting-edge research of Professor Paul Huray's team of industrial engineers and graduate students, it develops the physical theory of wave propagation using methods of solid state and high-energy physics, mathematics, chemistry, and electrical engineering before addressing its application to modern high-speed systems. Coverage includes:

* All the necessary electromagnetic theory needed for a complete understanding of signal integrity
* Techniques for obtaining analytic solutions to Maxwell's Equations for ideal materials and boundary conditions
* Plane electromagnetic waves
* Plane waves in compound media
* Transmission lines and waveguides
* Ideal models vs. real-world systems
* Complex permittivity of propagating media
* Surface roughness
* Advanced signal integrity
* Signal integrity simulations
* Problem sets for each chapter

With its thorough coverage of this relatively new discipline, the book serves as an ideal textbook for senior undergraduate and junior graduate students, as well as a resource for practicing engineers in this burgeoning field. At the end of each section, it typically stimulates the reader with open-ended questions that might lead to future theses or dissertation research.

Stability Analysis of Impulsive Functional Differential Equations

Author(s): Ivanka Stamova
Publisher: De Gruyter
Date : 2009
Pages : 230
Format : PDF
ISBN-10 : 3110221810

This book is devoted to impulsive functional differential equations which are a natural generalization of impulsive ordinary differential equations (without delay) and of functional differential equations (without impulses). At the present time, the qualitative theory of such equations is under rapid development. After a presentation of the fundamental theory of existence, uniqueness and continuability of solutions, a systematic development of stability theory for that class of problems is given which makes the book unique. It addresses to a wide audience such as mathematicians, applied researches and practitioners.
