  • Ultrasonic Methods for Measurement of Small Motion and Deformation of Biological Tissues for Assessment of Viscoelasticityby Hideyuki Hasegawa; Hiroshi Kanai

    Momentum Press 2014; US$ 80.00

    In this monograph, an accurate ultrasonic method for measurement of small motion and deformation of biological tissue is described. In the displacement estimation based on the phase change of echoes, the displacement estimates are biased when the center frequency of the RF echo changes. Such an apparent change in the center frequency could be caused by... more...

  • Engineering Risk Assessment with Subset Simulationby Siu-Kui Au; Yu Wang

    Wiley 2014; US$ 120.50

    This book starts with the basic ideas in uncertainty propagation using Monte Carlo methods and the generation of random variables and stochastic processes for some common distributions encountered in engineering applications. It then introduces a class of powerful simulation techniques called Markov Chain Monte Carlo method (MCMC), an important machinery... more...

  • Hydrothermal and Supercritical Water Processesby Gerd Brunner

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 225.00

      Hydrothermal and Supercritical Water Processes presents an overview on the properties and applications of water at elevated temperatures and pressures. It combines fundamentals with production process aspects. Water is an extraordinary substance. At elevated temperatures (and pressures) its properties change dramatically due to the modifications... more...

  • Mechanische Verfahrenstechnik und ihre Gesetzmäßigkeitenby Walter Müller

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 840.00

    In this work, mechanical processes that are based on common physical principles are coherently presented in combined chapters.

  • Defects and Damage in Composite Materials and Structuresby Rikard Benton Heslehurst

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 169.95

    The advantages of composite materials include a high specific strength and stiffness, formability, and a comparative resistance to fatigue cracking and corrosion. However, not forsaking these advantages, composite materials are prone to a wide range of defects and damage that can significantly reduce the residual strength and stiffness of a structure... more...

  • Contemporary Ergonomics and Human Factors 2014by Sarah Sharples; Steven Shorrock

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 139.95

    The broad and developing scope of human factors and ergonomics - the application of scientific knowledge to improve people?s interaction with products, systems and environments - has been illustrated for 28 years by the books which make up the Contemporary Ergonomics series. This book presents the proceedings of the international conference ? Ergonomics... more...

  • Aqueous Lubricationby Nicholas D. Spencer

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 140.00

    Man lubricates mostly with oil. Nature lubricates exclusively with water. Pure water is a poor lubricant, but the addition of proteins, especially glycoproteins, can modify surfaces to make them far more lubricating at slow speeds. Understanding how nature does this, and the physical structures involved, is not only important for the understanding... more...
