Topology Optimization in Engineering Structure Design
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
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
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
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...
Liquid–Gas and Solid–Gas Separators
Industrial Equipment for Chemical Engineering Set
This book is part of the Industrial Equipment for Chemical Engineering Set. Throughout these concise and easy-to-use books, the author uses his vast practical experience and precise knowledge of global research to present an in-depth study of a variety of aspects within the field of chemical engineering.
In this volume, the magnetic properties of solids and their separation in a magnetic field a...
Smoothness, Bounds, Supermartingale Approach
The book is an original monograph on risk theory, which is traditionally considered a branch of insurance mathematics. It deals with different continuous-time risk models and mainly provides results obtained by the authors recently.
The book covers several aspects of risk theory. It provides a detailed investigation of the continuity and differentiability of the infinite-horizon and finite-horizo...
Stochastic Models of Financial Mathematics
Optimization in Insurance and Finance Set
This book presents a short introduction to continuous-time financial models. An overview of the basics of stochastic analysis precedes a focus on the Black–Scholes and interest rate models. Other topics covered include self-financing strategies, option pricing, exotic options and risk-neutral probabilities. Vasicek, Cox Ingersoll-Ross, and Heath–Jarrow–Morton interest rate models are also explored...
Microwave Remote Sensing of Land Surfaces
Techniques and Methods
Recent progress in microwave remote sensing (instrumentation, data processing and analysis methods) has placed it at the heart of various international programs for the monitoring of the climate and impact of human-based changes to the environment.
This volume presents the physical and technical principles of different types of microwave sensors, including synthetic aperture radar (SAR), radar s...
Land Surface Remote Sensing
Environment and Risks
Spatial observation is an essential tool for the surveillance and tracking of climatic and anthropogenic changes and effects on the environment.
This volume presents several major applications of remote sensing to the environment and to risk: monitoring of desertification, deforestation and wildfires, characterization of industrial plume, monitoring the deformations of the Earth’s surface and ge...
Material Forming Processes
Simulation, Drawing, Hydroforming and Additive Manufacturing
Manufacturing industries strive to improve the quality and reliability of their products, while simultaneously reducing production costs. To do this, modernized work tools must be produced; this will enable a reduction in the duration of the product development cycle, optimization of product development procedures, and ultimately improvement in the productivity of design and manufacturing phases....
