This book provides an introduction to the granular mechanics of slowly deformed granular soils, such as sands and gravels. These granular materials exhibit quite complex and unusual behavior that results from the seemingly simple interactions of particle pairs.
The book is concerned with the grain-scale behavior of granular soils, and whenever possible, applies fundamental discrete mechanics to...
Networking Simulation for Intelligent Transportation Systems
High Mobile Wireless Nodes
This book studies the simulation of wireless networking in the domain of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) involving aircraft, railway and vehicular communication. On this subject, particular focus is placed on effective communication channels, mobility modeling, multi-technology simulation and global ITS simulation frameworks.

Safety of Web Applications
Risks, Encryption and Handling Vulnerabilities with PHP
Web applications are prime targets for hackers. If a site has poor security, it is more susceptible to hacking, which could lead to sensitive information being leaked. Establishing appropriate security involves first analyzing risk, which consists of an evaluation of information confidentiality, integrity and availability along with a potential threat analysis, should security be breached.
Metaheuristics Set – Volume 9
Evolutionary algorithms are bio-inspired algorithms based on Darwin’s theory of evolution. They are expected to provide non-optimal but good quality solutions to problems whose resolution is impracticable by exact methods.
In six chapters, this book presents the essential knowledge required to efficiently implement evolutionary algorithms.
Chapter 1 describes a generic evolutionary algorith...
Systems, Models and Applications
Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) is core to all engineering sciences. As a result, computational systems are seeing worldwide growth of services to all user domains: public or private, military or government, education or industry, healthcare or finance, science or entertainment.
The use of computational technologies (e.g. big data, high performance clusters, databases and information...
Interpolation and Extrapolation Optimal Designs 2
Finite Dimensional General Models
This book considers various extensions of the topics treated in the first volume of this series, in relation to the class of models and the type of criterion for optimality. The regressors are supposed to belong to a generic finite dimensional Haar linear space, which substitutes for the classical polynomial case. The estimation pertains to a general linear form of the coefficients of the model, e...
Process Control Design for Industrial Applications
This book explores the main practical methods and algorithms currently available for designing industrial process control, following concepts such as “embedded optimization” and “low-cost automation”. It also offers specialists in Industrial Automation the most up-to-date approaches and techniques for designing digital control systems and provides practical applications that are significant in the...
Analog Electronics for Measuring Systems
FOCUS Series in Electronics Engineering
Many instrumentation engineers and scientists often deal with analog electronic issues when approaching delicate measurements. Even if off-the-shelf measuring solutions exist, comprehension of the analog behavior of the measuring system is often a necessity.
This book provides a concise introduction to the main elements of a low frequency analog acquisition chain. It aims to be sufficiently gene...
Aerospace Actuators 2
Signal-by-Wire and Power-by-Wire
This book is the second in a series of volumes which cover the topic of aerospace actuators following a systems-based approach.
This second volume brings an original, functional and architectural vision to more electric aerospace actuators. The aspects of signal (Signal-by-Wire) and power (Power-by-Wire) are treated from the point of view of needs, their evolution throughout history, and operatio...
Mechanics of Aeronautical Solids, Materials and Structures
The objective of this work on the mechanics of aeronautical solids, materials and structures is to give an overview of the principles necessary for sizing of structures in the aeronautical field. It begins by introducing the classical notions of mechanics: stress, strain, behavior law, and sizing criteria, with an emphasis on the criteria specific to aeronautics, such as limit loads and ultimate l...
