Building Habitats on the Moon: Engineering Approaches to Lunar Settlements
Designing a habitat for the lunar surface? You will need to know more than structural engineering. There are the effects of meteoroids, radiation, and low gravity. Then there are the psychological and psychosocial aspects of living in close quarters, in a dangerous environment, far away from home. All these must be considered when the habitat is sized, materials specified, and structure designed. This book provides an overview of various concepts for lunar habitats and structural designs and characterizes the lunar environment - the technical and the nontechnical. The designs take into consideration psychological comfort, structural strength against seismic and thermal activity, as well as internal pressurization and 1/6 g. Also discussed are micrometeoroid modeling, risk and redundancy as well as probability and reliability, with an introduction to analytical tools that can be useful in modeling uncertainties.

Mechanical Vibration: Analysis, Uncertainties, and Control
Mechanical Vibration: Analysis, Uncertainties, and Control simply and comprehensively addresses the fundamental principles of vibration theory, emphasizing its application in solving practical engineering problems. The authors focus on strengthening engineers' command of mathematics as a cornerstone for understanding vibration, control, and the ways in which uncertainties affect analysis. It provides a detailed exploration and explanation of the essential equations involved in modeling vibrating systems and shows readers how to employ MATLAB(R) as an advanced tool for analyzing specific problems. Forgoing the extensive and in-depth analysis of randomness and control found in more specialized texts, this straightforward, easy-to-follow volume presents the format, content, and depth of description that the authors themselves would have found useful when they first learned the subject. The authors assume that the readers have a basic knowledge of dynamics, mechanics of materials, differential equations, and some knowledge of matrix algebra. Clarifying necessary mathematics, they present formulations and explanations to convey significant details. The material is organized to afford great flexibility regarding course level, content, and usefulness in self-study for practicing engineers or as a text for graduate engineering students. This work includes example problems and explanatory figures, biographies of renowned contributors, and access to a website providing supplementary resources. These include an online MATLAB primer featuring original programs that can be used to solve complex problems and test solutions.

Nonlinear Dynamics of Compliant Offshore Structures
This monograph provides a general background to the modelling of a special class of offshore structures known as compliant structures. External forcing is resisted by buoyancy and tension forces which increase when the structure is slightly offset from its equilibrium. The technical development given in this book is presented in such a way as to highlight the adaptability of the modelling, and the reader is shown how the techniques described can be applied to a variety of different offshore structures.

An Analytical Mechanics Framework for Flow-Oscillator Modeling of Vortex-Induced Bluff-Body Oscillations
This self-contained book provides an introduction to the flow-oscillator modeling of vortex-induced bluff-body oscillations. One of the great challenges in engineering science also happens to be one of engineering design - the modeling, analysis and design of vibrating structures driven by fluid motion. The literature on fluid-structure interaction is vast, and it can be said to comprise a large fraction of all papers published in the mechanical sciences. This book focuses on the vortex-induced oscillations of an immersed body, since, although the importance of the subject has long been known, it is only during the past fifty years that there have been concerted efforts to analytically model the general behavior of the coupling between vortex shedding and structural oscillations. At the same time, experimentalists have been gathering data on such interactions in order to help define the various regimes of behavior. This data is critical to our understanding and to those who develop analytical models, as can be seen in this book. The fundamental bases for the modeling developed in this book are the variational principles of analytical dynamics, in particular Hamilton's principle and Jourdain's principle, considered great intellectual achievements on par with Newton's laws of motion. Variational principles have been applied in numerous disciplines, including dynamics, optics and quantum mechanics. Here, we apply variational principles to the development of a framework for the modeling of flow-oscillator models of vortex-induced oscillations.

Nonlinear and Stochastic Dynamics of Compliant Offshore Structures
The purpose of this monograph is to show how a compliant offshore structure in an ocean environment can be modeled in two and three di mensions. The monograph is divided into five parts. Chapter 1 provides the engineering motivation for this work, that is, offshore structures. These are very complex structures used for a variety of applications. It is possible to use beam models to initially study their dynamics. Chapter 2 is a review of variational methods, and thus includes the topics: princi ple of virtual work, D'Alembert's principle, Lagrange's equation, Hamil ton's principle, and the extended Hamilton's principle. These methods are used to derive the equations of motion throughout this monograph. Chapter 3 is a review of existing transverse beam models. They are the Euler-Bernoulli, Rayleigh, shear and Timoshenko models. The equa tions of motion are derived and solved analytically using the extended Hamilton's principle, as outlined in Chapter 2. For engineering purposes, the natural frequencies of the beam models are presented graphically as functions of normalized wave number and geometrical and physical pa rameters. Beam models are useful as representations of complex struc tures. In Chapter 4, a fluid force that is representative of those that act on offshore structures is formulated. The environmental load due to ocean current and random waves is obtained using Morison's equa tion. The random waves are formulated using the Pierson-Moskowitz spectrum with the Airy linear wave theory.

Turning Dust to Gold: Building a Future on the Moon and Mars
The expansion of our civilization to the Moon and beyond is now within our reach, technically, intellectually and financially. Apollo was not our last foray into the Solar System and already science fiction is finding it difficult to keep ahead of science and engineering fact. In 1807, few people anticipated the Wright Brothers' human flight a hundred years later. In 1869, only science fiction writers would have suggested landing people on the Moon in 1969. Similarly, other great inventions in mechanics and in electronics were not envisaged and therefore the technologies to which those inventions gave birth were only foreseen by a tiny group of visionaries.
