The Mechanics of Piezoelectric Structures
This book is a natural continuation of the author's previous book,
"v4w Introduction to the Theory of Piezoelectricity" (Springer, New
York, 2005), which discusses the threedimensional theory of
piezoelectricity. Threedimensional theory presents complicated
mathematical problems due to the anisotropy of...   Strained Metallic Surfaces: Theory, Nanostructuring and Fatigue StrengthProviding students as well as engineers and researchers with a musthave insight into the complexities of surface structure and behavior, this monograph extends beyond the usual introductory books, presenting concentrated knowledge on the surface science of metals, and connecting fundamentals with actual applications. Beginning with explanations of...   Vibrations and Waves (Manchester Physics Series)This introductory text emphasises physical principles, rather than the mathematics. Each topic begins with a discussion of the physical characteristics of the motion or system. The mathematics is kept as clear as possible, and includes elegant mathematical descriptions where possible. Designed to provide a logical development of the subject, the... 

Ultrafast Infrared Vibrational Spectroscopy
The advent of laserbased sources of ultrafast infrared pulses has extended the study of very fast molecular dynamics to the observation of processes manifested through their effects on the vibrations of molecules. In addition, nonlinear infrared spectroscopic techniques make it possible to examine intra and intermolecular interactions and...   Mechanical Vibrations: Active and Passive ControlFor all rotational machines, the analysis of dynamic stresses and the resulting vibrations is an important subject. When it comes to helicopters and piston engines, this analysis becomes crucial. From the design of parts working under stress to the reduction of the vibration levels, the success of a project lies mainly in the hands of the...   Hybrid Electric Vehicle System Modeling and Control (Automotive Series)
This new edition includes approximately 30% new materials covering the following information that has been added to this important work:
 extends the contents on Liion batteries detailing the positive and negative electrodes and characteristics and other components including binder, electrolyte, separator and foils, and the...
