Mathematics for Modeling and Scientific Computing
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
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
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
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
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
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
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...
