  • Vibration Control of Active Structuresby A. Preumont

    Springer 2011; US$ 99.00

    This text is an introduction to the dynamics of active structures and to the feedback control of lightly damped flexible structures; the emphasis is placed on basic issues and simple control strategies that work. Now in its third edition, more chapters have been added, and comments and feedback from readers have been taken into account, while at the... more...

  • Special Topics in Earthquake Geotechnical Engineeringby Mohamed A. Sakr; Atilla Ansal

    Springer 2012; US$ 179.00

    Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering and Soil Dynamics, as well as their interface with Engineering Seismology, Geophysics and Seismology, have all made remarkable progress over the past 15 years, mainly due to the development of instrumented large scale experimental facilities, to the increase in the quantity and quality of recorded earthquake data,... more...

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    This book, "Heat and Mass Transfer in Porous Media", presents a set of new developments in the field of basic and applied research work on the physical and chemical aspects of heat and mass transfer phenomena in a porous medium domain, as well as related material properties and their measurements. The book contents include both theoretical... more...

  • Nanostructured Materials and Their Applicationsby Stergios Logothetidis

    Springer 2012; US$ 179.00

    This book gives an overview of nanostructures and nanomaterials applied in the fields of energy and organic electronics. It combines the knowledge from advanced deposition and processing methods of nanomaterials such as laser-based growth and nanopatterning and state-of-the-art characterization techniques with special emphasis on the optical, electrical,... more...

  • Energy Methods in Dynamicsby Khanh Chau Le

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    The above examples should make clear the necessity of understanding the mechanism of vibrations and waves in order to control them in an optimal way. However vibrations and waves are governed by differential equations which require, as a rule, rather complicated mathematical methods for their analysis. The aim of this textbook is to help students acquire... more...

  • Semiconductor Nanostructures for Optoelectronic Devicesby Gyu-Chul Yi

    Springer 2012; US$ 149.00

    This book presents the fabrication of optoelectronic nanodevices. The structures considered are nanowires, nanorods, hybrid semiconductor nanostructures, wide bandgap nanostructures for visible light emitters and graphene. The device applications of these structures are broadly explained. The book deals also with the characterization of semiconductor... more...

  • Inverse Analyses with Model Reductionby Vladimir Buljak

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    In this self-consistent monograph, the author gathers and describes different mathematical techniques and combines all together to form practical procedures for the inverse analyses. It puts together topics coming from mathematical programming, with soft computing and Proper Orthogonal Decomposition, in order to show, in the context of structural analyses,... more...

  • Managing Safety of Heterogeneous Systemsby Yuri Ermoliev; Marek Makowski; Kurt Marti

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    Managing safety of diverse systems requires decision-making under uncertainties and risks. Such systems are typically characterized by spatio-temporal heterogeneities, inter-dependencies, externalities, endogenous risks, discontinuities, irreversibility, practically irreducible uncertainties, and rare events with catastrophic consequences. Traditional... more...

  • Optical Properties of Nanostructured Metallic Systemsby Sergio G. Rodrigo

    Springer 2011; US$ 129.00

    The common belief is that light is completely reflected by metals. In reality they also exhibit an amazing property that is not so widely known: under some conditions light flows along a metallic surface as if it were glued to it. Physical phenomena related to these light waves, which are called Surface Plasmon Polaritons (SPP), have given rise to... more...

  • Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites for Infrastructure Applicationsby Ravi Jain; Luke Lee

    Springer 2012; US$ 209.00

    This book examines current issues of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites in civil infrastructure. The contents of this book are divided into two parts. The first part engages topics related to durability and service life of FRP composites and how they contribute to sustainability. The second part highlights implementation and applications of... more...
