Structural Dynamics
(Springer, 2019)The basic structure of the five previous editions is still maintained in this Sixth Edition. After the release of the Fifth Edition in 2004, academic and industrial environments have been changed, although the fundamentals ... 
Robotics
(Springer, 2019)is perhaps difficult to agree on what a robot is, but most people working in robotics would probably quote the “Father of Robotics”, Joseph F. Engelberger (1925–2015), a pioneer in industrial robotics, stating “I can’t ... 
Optimization of Process Flowsheets through Metaheuristic Techniques
(Springer, 2019)This book presents a general framework to implement a link between process simulators and optimization through metaheuristic techniques. The book describes stepby step the methodology to implement this link for ... 
Fundamentals of Solid State Engineering
(Springer, 2019)Learning from Nature: Structure of Matter – Atoms Nature is the best innovator and teacher. Scientists know for a while now that all matter consists of atoms. The atom is the smallest part of any material element. So when ... 
Control Engineering: MATLAB Exercises
(Springer, 2019)This book is intended to aid students in their study of MATLAB™/SIMULINK™ for use in solving control problems. Specifically, 16 labs for an introductory control course have been developed at the Department of Automation ... 
OffGrid Electrical Systems in Developing Countries
(Springer, 2018)Over one billion people do not have access to electricity. The majority live in developing countries in SubSaharan Africa and South Asia. The consequences of this form of energy poverty can be severe. Most activities ... 
Logical Foundations of CyberPhysical Systems
(Springer, 2018)Cyberphysical systems combine cyber capabilities with physical capabilities to solve problems that neither part could solve alone. This chapter provides an informal introduction to cyberphysical systems, setting the ... 
Lessons on Synthetic Bioarchitectures
(Springer, 2018)The objective of synthetic bioarchitectures as a field of research cannot be confined yet as it belongs to the converging sciences, still emerging; however, let us foresee one of the most relevant objectives of this ... 
Building Energy Modeling with OpenStudio
(Springer, 2018)This book is intended to provide advanced undergraduate and graduate students with an introduction to the topic of building energy modeling, simulation, analysis, and optimization. It is assumed that the reader has a ... 
Robotics, Vision and Control
(Springer, 2017)These are exciting times for robotics. Since the fi rst edition of this book was published we have seen much progress: the rise of the selfdriving car, the Mars science laboratory rover making profound discoveries on ... 
Principles of Mobile Communication
(Springer, 2017)Principles of Mobile Communication, Fourth Edition, like its earlier editions, stresses mathematical modeling of physical layer wireless communication systems. The basic pedagogic methodology is to include fully detailed ... 
Guide to Computer Network Security
(Springer, 2017)It has been barely 3 years since our third edition came out, and we are again in need of a new and improved fourth edition. This quick turnaround of editions of a successful book like this is indicative of the rapidly ... 
Brewing Science: A Multidisciplinary Approach
(Springer, 2017)What do your professors do at the end of a day at college? Many, the authors included, will enjoy a craft brew and discuss the day’s successes and opportunities for improvement. Thus began the discussion for the beginnings ... 
Practical Electrical Engineering
(Springer, 2016)Electricity, Electric field intensity, Electric field, Electric field magnitude, Lines of force, Electric potential, Electric voltage, Line integral, Contour integral, Conservative field, Potential energy of the electric ... 
Irrigation and Drainage Engineering
(Springer, 2016)This book was written for three semesterlong classes: Soil and Water Resources Engineering, Irrigation Systems Design, and Agricultural Drainage and Effluent Treatment. Almost all the chapters are accompanied with ... 
Fundamentals of Structural Engineering
(Springer, 2016)The first edition considered only linear elastic behavior of structures. This assumption is reasonable for assessing the structural response in the early stage of design where one is attempting to estimate design details. ... 
Energy Storage
(Springer, 2016)Energy is necessary for a number of reasons; the most basic and obvious involve the preparation of food and the provision of heat in order to make life comfortable, or at least, bearable. Subsequently, a wide range of ... 
The Finite Element Method and Applications in Engineering Using ANSYS®
(Springer, 2015)The finite element method (FEM) has become a staple for predicting and simulating the physical behavior of complex engineering systems. The commercial finite element analysis (FEA) programs have gained common acceptance ... 
Introduction to Logic Circuits & Logic Design with Verilog
(Springer, 2017)The purpose of this new book is to fill a void that has appeared in the instruction of digital circuits over the past decade due to the rapid abstraction of system design. Up until the mid1980s, digital circuits were ... 
Introduction to Logic Circuits & Logic Design with VHDL
(Springer, 2017)The purpose of this new book is to fill a void that has appeared in the instruction of digital circuits over the past decade due to the rapid abstraction of system design. Up until the mid1980s, digital circuits were ...
