Developments in Management Science in Engineering 2017

Management science in engineering (MSE) is playing an increasingly important role in modern society. In particular, the development of efficient and innovative managerial tools has significantly influenced the research progress of management science. As research is vital for the propagation of leading-edge methods, journal evaluati...

Transforming Classroom Practice through Robotics Education

This book offers a thorough and reader-friendly discussion of the relevance of incorporating robotics into the 21st century classroom. It explores essential topics including outcome-based education, robotics technology, the use robotics in education, and its theoretical underpinnings, among others. It also provides a wide range of ...

A Critical Perspective of Entropy Generation Minimization in Thermal Analyses and Optimizations

Thermal analyses and optimizations are very ubiquitous and important in academic research and engineering applications. In this field, the entropy generation minimization has been widely used and found to be effective in many cases. Sometimes, it was even used without checking the applicability, and seemed to be a unified theory th...

Seismic Isolation Strategies for Earthquake-Resistant Construction

Earthquakes are catastrophic events that cause huge economic losses due to the vulnerability of the existing building stock. However, collapses of vulnerable buildings can be avoided if preventative measures, such as enhancement of their earthquake resistance, are implemented on time. This book will allow the reader to become acqua...

The Propagation of Ultrasonic Waves in Gas-containing Suspensions

This book presents the results of research in the field of automated systems for the monitoring and control of technological processes of mining production. It offers the first mathematical description of Lamb waves’ propagation processes on surfaces in contact with randomly heterogeneous media (gas-containing suspensions). It is a...

The Story of Offshore Arctic Engineering

In the early 1970s, new technology was needed to aid in coal, oil and gas exploration in the High Arctic, in order to see if ice sheets could provide a perfect structural support for roadways, airstrips and drilling platforms housing hundreds of workers. However, little engineering experience was available in this regard.This book ...

Decision Making in Engineering Design

This book presents an operational tool for decision making under uncertainty in any engineering design. It synthesizes classical decision making methods, such as multi-attribute utility theory, analytic hierarchy process with game theory and quantum decision theory. It demonstrates the implementation of the value driven design phil...

Viscous Flow Environments in Oceans and Inland Waters

This text targets advanced undergraduate students, graduate students and practicing aquatic scientists who seek to understand effects of flow on aquatic processes but have had little prior exposure to fluid dynamics. It provides a self-contained introduction to flows at small scales within oceans and fresh waters in ubiquitous sett...

The Design and Optimization of Optical Filters for High Data Rates Optical Systems

This book presents a collection of research articles related to optical filters, commonly used on optical communication systems like the Bragg grating filter, the hybrid Solc filter, the stratified photonic crystal and the two dimensional photonic crystal fiber. These devices were designed and optimized to filter with a high accura...

Collagen, from Tissue Culture to Biomaterials, Tissue Engineering, and Beyond

As collagen is the main structural component of body tissues, there has been much effort expended, both in the past and today, to use it in cell culture applications. Indeed, its importance is further stressed by the wide use of collagen biomaterials in tissue repair and regeneration, including the treatment of burns, chronic wound...

Seismic Assessment and Retrofit of Reinforced Concrete Columns

Reinforced concrete columns play a very important role in structural performance. As such, it is essential to apply a suitable analytical tool to estimate their structural behaviour considering all failure mechanisms such as axial, shear, and flexural failures. This book highlights the development of a fiber beam-column element acc...
