Introduction to Discrete Event Systems As its title suggests, this book is about a special class of systems which in recent decades have become an integral part of our world. Before getting into the details of this particular class of systems, it is reasonable to start out by simply describing what we mean by a “system”, and by presenting the fundamental concepts associated... Tensors: The Mathematics of Relativity Theory and Continuum Mechanics This book emerged from courses taught at the University College of Dublin, Carnegie-Mellon University and mostly at Simon Fraser University. This is a modern introduction to the theory of tensor algebra and tensor analysis. It discusses tensor algebra in Chapters 1 and 2. Differential manifold is introduced in Chapter 3. Tensor analysis,... Biomechanical Systems Technology Because of rapid developments in computer technology and computational techniques, advances in a wide spectrum of technologies, coupled with cross-disciplinary pursuits between technology and its application to human body processes, the field of biomechanics continues to evolve. Many areas of significant progress include dynamics of musculoskeletal...
Damage and Interfacial Debonding in Composites (Studies in Applied Mechanics)
This book represents thirteen papers that are based on the presentations made in the five
session symposium on "Damage and Interfacial Debonding in Composites" on the occasion
of the 32nd Society of Engineering Science Meeting; held in New Orleans, Louisiana,
October 29 - November 1, 1995. The five sessions were mainly in the...
Fundamentals of Structural Engineering
Fundamentals of Structural Engineering provides a balanced, seamless treatment of both classic, analytic methods and contemporary, computer-based techniques for conceptualizing and designing a structure. The book?s principle goal is to foster an intuitive understanding of structural behavior based on problem solving experience for...
Mechanics of Microelectromechanical Systems This book offers a comprehensive coverage to the mechanics of
microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), which are analyzed from a
mechanical engineer’s viewpoint as devices that transform an input form of
energy, such as thermal, electrostatic, electromagnetic or optical, into output
mechanical motion (in the case of...
