Mathematics for Modeling and Scientific Computing

Thierry Goudon, Université Côte d’Azur, France

The book provides the mathematical basis for investigating numerical equations from physics, life sciences or engineering. Tools for analysis and algorithms are applied to a large set of relevant examples to show the difficulties and the limitations of the most naïve approaches. Not only do these examples give the opportunity to put into practice mathematical statements, but modeling issues are al...

Reliability in Biomechanics

Reliability of Multiphysical Systems Set - Volume 3

Ghias Kharmanda, Lund University, Sweden Abdelkhalak El Hami, INSA-Rouen, France

Classical design procedures in biomechanics are carried out under deterministic constraints, despite the fact that constraints can vary constantly when considering changes in terms of environment, ageing, disease, nutrition and other factors.
There is a strong need to consider this complexity in material property uncertainty, which can become problematic when considering biomechanical application...

From Prognostics and Health Systems Management to Predictive Maintenance 1

Monitoring and Prognostics

Rafael Gouriveau, National Institute in Mechanics and Microtechnologies, Besançon, France Kamal Medjaher, Tarbes National School of Engineering, France Noureddine Zerhouni, National Institute in Mechanics and Microtechnologies, Besançon, France

This book addresses the steps needed to manage the health state of systems and anticipate their failures: choice and location of sensors, data acquisition and processing, health assessment and prediction of the remaining useful life.
The digital revolution and mechatronics foreshadowed the advent of the 4.0 industry where equipment has the ability to communicate. The ubiquity of sensors (300,000 ...

Production and Maintenance Optimization Problems

Logistic Constraints and Leasing Warranty Services

Nidhal Rezg, University of Lorraine, France Zied Hajej, University of Lorraine, France Valerio Boschian-Campaner, University of Lorraine, France

This work looks at several production and maintenance optimization problems, taking into account industrial constraints such as subcontracting, warranty, and quality in manufacturing and logistic fields. Maintenance strategies for different scenarios are developed in each chapter through considering specific conditions of certain industrial constraints. Analytical and simulation models are employe...

Digital Electronics 3

Finite-state Machines

Tertulien Ndjountche, Erlangen-Nuremberg University, Germany

The omnipresence of electronic devices in our everyday lives has been accompanied by the downscaling of chip feature sizes and the ever increasing complexity of digital circuits.
This third volume in the comprehensive Digital Electronics series, which explores the basic principles and concepts of digital circuits, focuses on finite-state machines. These machines are characterized by a behavior ...

Transformation of Collective Intelligences

Perspective of Transhumanism

Jean-Max Noyer, University of Toulon, France

The production of knowledge and intelligibility is undergoing a great transformation. The “digital fold of the world” (with the convergence of Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Information Technology and Cognitive Science, known as NBIC) affects the collective assemblages of thought and of research, which give rise to controversial issues concerning performative science and performative society. This...

Topology Optimization in Engineering Structure Design

Weihong Zhang, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi’an, China Jihong Zhu, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi’an, China Tong Gao, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi’an, China

This book explores the recent advances and applications of topology optimization in engineering structures design, with a particular focus on aircraft and aerospace structural systems.
To meet the increasingly complex engineering challenges provided by rapid developments in these industries, structural optimization techniques have developed in conjunction with them over the past two decades. The...

Factorization of Boundary Value Problems Using the Invariant Embedding Method

Jacques Henry, INRIA Bordeaux Sud-ouest, France Angel Manuel Ramos, Complutense University of Madrid, Spain

This book presents a new “factorized” formulation, for boundary value problems for linear elliptic partial differential equations.
Based on the invariant embedding method of Richard Bellman, well-known for the synthesis of closed loop optimal control, and here applied to solving boundary value problems, this formulation is comprised of two decoupled Cauchy problems and a Riccati equation for Dir...

Disaster Prevention Policies

A challenging and Critical Outlook

Patrick Pigeon, University of Savoie-Mont-Blanc, France Julien Rebotier, LISST Laboratory of CNRS, Toulouse, France

This book addresses disaster risk reduction (DRR) policies, focusing on reducing the paradox that exists between the compulsory implementation of DRR policies and continuing limitations
The authors use their knowledge of the ever-evolving threats associated with disasters and their prevention to investigate this famous paradox and propose solutions that will help readers understand and reconsider...

Energy Autonomy of Batteryless and Wireless Embedded Systems

Aeronautical Applications

Jean-Marie Dilhac, National Institute of Applied Sciences of Toulouse, France Vincent Boitier, University Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France

Numerous new applications of embedded systems are envisioned in the context of aeronautics, such as sensor deployment for flight tests or for structural health monitoring. However, the increasing burden of on-board cabling requires wireless solutions. Moreover, concerns such as safety or system lifetime preclude the use of electrochemical energy storage. Ambient energy capture, storage and managem...
