System Dynamics and Long-Term Behaviour of Railway Vehicles, Track and Subgrade
During the last decades completely new technologies for high speed railway vehicles have been developed. The primary goals have been to increase traction, axle load, and travelling speed, and to guarantee the safety of the passengers. However, new developments have revealed new limitations: settlement and destruction of the ballast and the subgrade lead to deterioration of the track; irregular wear of the wheels causes an increase in overall load and deterioration in passenger comfort; and damage of the running surfaces of the rail and the wheel is becoming more frequent. These problems have been investigated in the Priority Programme SPP 1015 supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), with the goal of better understanding of the dynamic interaction of vehicle and track, and the long-term behavior of the components of the system. The book contains the scientific results of the programme as presented at the concluding colloquium held at University of Stuttgart, Germany, 2002.

Natural Corrosion Inhibitors
Regarding the vast use of chemical components in different human activities, they are susceptible to corrosion because of contact with aggressive environments.Therefore, the use of inhibitors for the control of corrosion of chemical components in corrosive media is an urgent affair. Numerous investigations were carried out and are still being done to study the corrosion inhibition potential of organic compounds. Remarkable inhibition efficiency was achieved by all these compounds particularly some with N, S, and O atoms in their structure. Unfortunately, most of these compounds are not only expensive but also toxic to living beings. Hence, it is essential to mention the importance of natural inhibitors as eco-friendly, readily available, and renewable sources. The main goal of this book is to point out the influence of these components in terms of physical and, in some cases, chemical, processes on different components in aggressive media. Different methods of measuring corrosion, adsorption behavior, mechanism of inhibitors, and some related information is presented in this book. There is a lack of comprehensive and relevant books on this subject, so we decided to write this book in order to accumulate useful information about the influence of natural inhibitors on metals in corrosive areas and to make it accessible to researchers.

This book reflects the latest research results in computer modelling of landslide-induced debris flows. The book establishes an understanding of the initiation and propagation mechanisms of landslides by means of numerical simulations, so that mitigation strategies to reduce the long-term losses from landslide hazards can be devised. In this context, the book employs the Discrete Element Method (DEM) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to investigate the mechanical and hydraulic behaviour of granular materials involved in landslides - an approach that yields meaningful insights into the flow mechanisms, concerning e.g. the mobilization of sediments, the generation and dissipation of excess pore water pressures, and the evolution of effective stresses. As such, the book provides valuable information, useful methods and robust numerical tools that can be successfully applied in the field of debris flow research.

Dynamic Modeling of Musculoskeletal Motion: A Vectorized Approach for Biomechanical Analysis in Three Dimensions
Dynamic Modeling of Musculoskeletal Motion introduces biomechanists to modern methods of modeling and analyzing dynamic biomechanical systems in three dimensions. Using vector kinematics, the reader is taught a systematic method which significantly reduces the complexity of working with multiple, moving limb segments in three dimensions. Operations which usually require the application of differential calculus are replaced by simple algebraic formulae. To derive dynamical equations of motion, a practical introduction to Kane's Method is given. Kane's Method builds upon the foundation of vector kinematics and represents one of the most exciting theoretical developments of the modern era. Together, these techniques enable biomechanists to decipher and model living systems with great realism, efficiency and accuracy. Interwoven with the theoretical presentation are chapters and examples which highlight the subtle differences between inanimate linkages and the biomechanical systems we seek to understand.

IUTAM Symposium on Laminar-Turbulent Transition and Finite Amplitude Solutions
An exciting new direction in hydrodynamic stability theory and the transition to turbulence is concerned with the role of disconnected states or finite amplitude solutions in the evolution of disorder in fluid flows. This volume contains refereed papers presented at the IUTAM/LMS sponsored symposium on Non-Uniqueness of Solutions to the Navier-Stokes equations and their Connection with Laminar-Turbulent Transition held in Bristol 2004. Theoreticians and experimentalists gathered to discuss developments in understanding both the onset and collapse of disordered motion in shear flows such as those found in pipes and channels. The central objective of the symposium was to discuss the increasing amount of experimental and numerical evidence for finite amplitude solutions to the Navier-Stokes equations and to set the work into a modern theoretical context. The participants included many of the leading authorities in the subject and this volume captures much of the flavour of the resulting stimulating and lively discussions.

A GROUNDBREAKING TEXT THAT BRIDGES TEH GAP BETWEEN THEORTERICAL DYANICS AND INDUSTRY APPLICATIONS. Designed to address the perceived failure of introductory dynamics courses to produce students capable of applying dynamic principles successfully, both in subsequent courses and in practice, Engineering Applications of Dynamics adopts a much-needed practical approach designed to make the subject not only more relevant, but more interesting as well. Written by a highly respected team of authors, the book is the first of its kind to tie dynamics theory directly to real-world situations. By touching on complex concepts only to the extent of illustrating their value in real-world applications, the authors provide students with a deeper understanding of dynamics in the engineering of mechanical systems. Topics of interest include: * The formulation of equations in forms suitable for computer simulation * Simulation examples of real engineering systems * Applications to vehicle dynamics * Lagrange's equations as an alternative formulation procedure * Vibrations of lumped and distributed systems * Three-dimensional motion of rigid bodies, with emphasis on gyroscopic effects * Transfer functions for linearized dynamic systems * Active control of dynamic systems A Solutions Manual with detailed solutions for al problems in this book is available at the Web site, www.wiley.com/college/karnopp.

Dynamics of Bodies with Time-Variable Mass
This book deals with the problem of dynamics of bodies with time-variable mass and moment of inertia. Mass addition and mass separation from the body are treated. Both aspects of mass variation, continual and discontinual, are considered. Dynamic properties of the body are obtained applying principles of classical dynamics and also analytical mechanics. Advantages and disadvantages of both approaches are discussed. Dynamics of constant body is adopted, and the characteristics of the mass variation of the body is included. Special attention is given to the influence of the reactive force and the reactive torque. The vibration of the body with variable mass is presented. One and two degrees of freedom oscillators with variable mass are discussed. Rotors and the Van der Pol oscillator with variable mass are displayed. The chaotic motion of bodies with variable mass is discussed too. To support learning, some solved practical problems are included.

A vast majority of failures emanate from stress concentrators such as geometrical discontinuities. The role of stress concentration was first highlighted by Inglis (1912) who gives a stress concentration factor for an elliptical defect, and later by Neuber (1936). With the progress in computing, it is now possible to compute ...
Fracture and Fatigue Emanating from Stress Concentrators
A vast majority of failures emanate from stress concentrators such as geometrical discontinuities. The role of stress concentration was first highlighted by Inglis (1912) who gives a stress concentration factor for an elliptical defect, and later by Neuber (1936). With the progress in computing, it is now possible to compute the real stress distribution at a notch tip. This distribution is not simple, but looks like pseudo-singularity as in principle the power dependence with distance remains. This distribution is governed by the notch stress intensity factor which is the basis of Notch Fracture Mechanics. Notch Fracture Mechanics is associated with the volumetric method which postulates that fracture requires a physical volume. Since fatigue also needs a physical process volume, Notch Fracture Mechanics can easily be extended to fatigue emanating from a stress concentration.

Modelling and Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Structures for Dynamic Loading
A comprehensive review of the material behavior of concrete under dynamic loads, especially impact and impuls, opens the volume. It is followed by a summary of the various analytical tools available to engineers interested in analyzing the nonlinear behavior of reinforced concrete members for dynamic load. These range from relatively simple and practice-oriented push-over analysis to sophisticated layered finite element models. Important design-related topics are discussed, with special emphasis on performance of concrete frames subjected to seismic loads. The significance of modern software systems is recognized by including extensive examples. For readers not current in dynamic analysis methods, an appendix contains a review of the mathematical methods most commonly used for such analysis.

Evaluation of Global Bearing Capacities of Structures
A synthetic presentation of the theory of yield design is illustrated by examples such as the stability analysis of reinforced soil structures and the resistance of long fiber reinforced composite materials. The classical limit analysis theory when standard elastic perfectly plastic behaviour can be assumed yields a more precise assessment of the global bearing capacities of structures and makes optimal limit design possible. Structural optimal design is also studied with respect to eigenvalues as well as Structural Topology and Design Optimization.
