Ultimate Limit State Design of Steel-Plated Structures
Steel plated structures are important in a variety of marine and land-based applications, including ships, offshore platforms, power and chemical plants, box girder bridges and box girder cranes. The basic strength members in steel plated structures include support members (such as stiffeners and plate girders), plates, stiffened panels/grillages and box girders. During their lifetime, the structures constructed using these members are subjected to various types of loading which is for the most part operational, but may in some cases be extreme or even accidental. Ultimate Limit State Design of Steel Plated Structures reviews and describes both fundamentals and practical design procedures in this field. The derivation of the basic mathematical expressions is presented together with a thorough discussion of the assumptions and the validity of the underlying expressions and solution methods. Particularly valuable coverage in the book includes: Serviceability and the ultimate limit state design of steel structural systems and their components The progressive collapse and the design of damage tolerant structures in the context of marine accidents Age related structural degradation such as corrosion and fatigue cracks Furthermore, this book is also an easily accessed design tool which facilitates learning by applying the concepts of the limit states for practice using a set of computer programs which can be downloaded. In addition, expert guidance on mechanical model test results as well as nonlinear finite element solutions, sophisticated design methodologies useful for practitioners in industries or research institutions, selected methods for accurate and efficient analyses of nonlinear behavior of steel plated structures both up to and after the ultimate strength is reached, is provided. Designed as both a textbook and a handy reference, the book is well suited to teachers and university students who are approaching the limit state design technology of steel plated structures for the first time. The book also meets the needs of structural designers or researchers who are involved in civil, marine and mechanical engineering as well as offshore engineering and naval architecture.

Automotive Aerodynamics
Automotive Aerodynamics Joseph Katz, San Diego State University, USA The automobile is an icon of modern technology because it includes most aspects of modern engineering, and it offers an exciting approach to engineering education. Of course there are many existing books on introductory fluid/aero dynamics but the majority of these are too long, focussed on aerospace and don t adequately cover the basics. Therefore, there is room and a need for a concise, introductory textbook in this area. Automotive Aerodynamics fulfils this need and is an introductory textbook intended as a first course in the complex field of aero/fluid mechanics for engineering students. It introduces basic concepts and fluid properties, and covers fluid dynamic equations. Examples of automotive aerodynamics are included and the principles of computational fluid dynamics are introduced. This text also includes topics such as aeroacoustics and heat transfer which are important to engineering students and are closely related to the main topic of aero/fluid mechanics. This textbook contains complex mathematics, which not only serve as the foundation for future studies but also provide a road map for the present text. As the chapters evolve, focus is placed on more applicable examples, which can be solved in class using elementary algebra. The approach taken is designed to make the mathematics more approachable and easier to understand. Key features: Concise textbook which provides an introduction to fluid mechanics and aerodynamics, with automotive applications Written by a leading author in the field who has experience working with motor sports teams in industry Explains basic concepts and equations before progressing to cover more advanced topics Covers internal and external flows for automotive applications Covers emerging areas of aeroacoustics and heat transfer Automotive Aerodynamics is a must-have textbook for undergraduate and graduate students in automotive and mechanical engineering, and is also a concise reference for engineers in industry.

Dynamic System Modeling and Control System Design
This book will serve as a text emphasizing the modelling of dynamic systems and their control and develop important student competencies in the area. With the increased ability of controllers and control design software packages to self-tune automatically tune controller parameters in some applications, it is important that control engineering education address broader control system design issues. For mechanically actuated systems, actuation system selection and definition of the plant to be controlled and implications for controller design are important system design issues that need better treatment in truly control system design education. This aspect of the book will also make it more attractive to practicing engineers. Integrated treatment of modelling and control of dynamic systems requires more complete treatment of modeling and better awareness of the connections between dynamic system modeling and controller development. Currently used texts for control systems give short shrift to the topic of dynamic system modelling. Specially developed electronic content will complement print content and do so while being compatible with print content in many ways ? nomenclature, topics, etc.. It can focus on topics with shorter life spans such as technologies, so that the content may be updated on a schedule different from print content. This would be particularly valuable for emerging control technologies, for example, smart actuation technologies. Electronic content can also focus on description of plant hardware that is more complex in form/and or function, in which case electronic graphics and animation techniques can be used to good effect to illustrate details of form and/or function.
