Bridge Engineering: Seismic Design (Principles and Applications in Engineering) Mitigating the effects of earthquakes is crucial to bridge design. With chapters culled from the best-selling Bridge Engineering Handbook, this volume sets forth the principles and applications of seismic design, from the necessary geotechnical and dynamic analysis background to seismic isolation and energy dissipation, active control, and retrofit... Standard Handbook of Electronic Engineering, Fifth Edition with CD-ROM
The Standard Handbook of Electronics Engineering has defined its field for over thirty years. Spun off in the 1960’s from Fink’s Standard Handbook of Electrical Engineering, the Christiansen book has seen its markets grow rapidly, as electronic engineering and microelectronics became the growth engine of digital computing. The EE...
Field Geophysics Although there are many different geophysical methods, small-scale surveys
all tend to be rather alike and involve similar, and sometimes ambiguous,
jargon. For example, the word base has three different common meanings,
and stacked and field have two each.
Measurements in geophysical surveys are made in the field but,...
Industrial Power Engineering Handbook (Newnes Power Engineering Series) Never before has so much ground been covered in a single volume reference source. This five-part work is sure to be of great value to students, technicians and practicing engineers as well as equipment designers and manufacturers, and should become their one-stop shop for all information needs in this subject area.
This book will be of...
Real-Time Volume Graphics
IN TRADITIONAL COMPUTER GRAPHICS, 3D objects are created using highlevel
surface representations such as polygonal meshes, NURBS (nonuniform
rational B-spline) patches, or subdivision surfaces. Using this modeling
paradigm, visual properties of surfaces, such as color, roughness, and
reflectance, are described by means of a shading...
