Fundamentals of Ship Hydrodynamics: Fluid Mechanics, Ship Resistance and Propulsion
Fundamentals of Ship Hydrodynamics: Fluid Mechanics, Ship Resistance and Propulsion Lothar Birk, University of New Orleans, USA Bridging the information gap between fluid mechanics and ship hydrodynamics Fundamentals of Ship Hydrodynamics is designed as a textbook for undergraduate education in ship resistance and propulsion. The book provides connections between basic training in calculus and fluid mechanics and the application of hydrodynamics in daily ship design practice. Based on a foundation in fluid mechanics, the origin, use, and limitations of experimental and computational procedures for resistance and propulsion estimates are explained. The book is subdivided into sixty chapters, providing background material for individual lectures. The unabridged treatment of equations and the extensive use of figures and examples enable students to study details at their own pace. Key features: Covers the range from basic fluid mechanics to applied ship hydrodynamics. Subdivided into 60 succinct chapters. In-depth coverage of material enables self-study. Around 250 figures and tables. Fundamentals of Ship Hydrodynamics is essential reading for students and staff of naval architecture, ocean engineering, and applied physics. The book is also useful for practicing naval architects and engineers who wish to brush up on the basics, prepare for a licensing exam, or expand their knowledge.

Understanding Light Microscopy
This textbook introduces readers to the modern light microscope. It can either be used alone or in conjunction with a practical course. The book begins with an account of how the light microscope works, and how to set up the instrument for optimum performance. The nature of light, and its influence on the function of the microscope, as well as practical advice on selecting the most suitable components, is explained to the reader. An account of the different types of currently-available light microscopy modes follows, together with a guide, borne out by the authors practical experience, on how to choose between transmitted or reflected light microscopes; wide-field, confocal, deconvolution or multi-photon microscopes. A description of specimen preparation is given, as well as advice upon cameras, image acquisition and post-processing of data. * Gives a didactic introduction to the light microscope * Explanation complemented with simple experiments where appropriate * Simple explanation (from teaching the subject) enables a self-taught student to start from scratch to set up and acquire high quality images * Leads the student on, should they wish, to use advanced fluorescence and confocal microscopes within a research institute or core microscopy facility * Well-illustrated in colour, the illustrations are selected (from long teaching experience) to support text * Workable practical protocols * Includes a chapter summary to introduce learning objectives Part of the Royal Microscopical Society co-publication book program

Introduction to Strain-Based Structural Health Monitoring of Civil Structures
A comprehensive introduction to strain-based structural health monitoring of civil structures, with focus on measurement and data analysis Introduction to Strain-Based Structural Health Monitoring of Civil Structures focuses on the SHM of Civil Structures and Infrastructure, and develops the relevant topics of measurement and data analysis from a fundamental to advanced level. The book contains an overview of the available and emerging monitoring technologies, for example, traditional strain-gauges, fiber optic sensors, and large area electronics. The fundamental criteria for applications of SHM technologies on concrete, steel and composite materials are also discussed, and both basic and advanced data interpretation and analysis for static and dynamic monitoring are presented in detail. Methods applicable to a large spectrum of civil structures such as bridges, buildings, and geo-structures are summarized. These methods are illustrated with practical examples. Key features: * Introduces strain-based structural health monitoring of civil structures, with focus on measurement and data analysis. * Contains the basic strain-based SHM methods for monitoring various types of structures. * Covers the physical principles, advantages and limitations of various types of sensors. * Covers the sources of static and dynamic strain, and how to interpret the strain measurement. * Includes basic and advanced methods for static and dynamic data analysis. * Explores the potential and benefits as well as the limitations of SHM. * Suitable as a guide for practicing engineers, reference for infrastructure owners, and textbook for researchers and SHM university courses. Introduction to Strain-Based Structural Health Monitoring of Civil Structures is essential, state-of-the-art reading for civil and structural engineers and professionals in SHM, as well as teachers, researchers and students in civil engineering.

Vibration Testing, with Modal Testing and Health Monitoring
In Vibration Testing, with Modal Testing Analysis and Health Monitoring, Slater addresses the need for an accessible and practical text covering the broad field of vibration testing in structures and machine health monitoring. The book is divided into clear chapters giving an overview of the major topics. This begins with a review of the fundamentals (both single and multiple degree of freedom systems), then goes on to cover probability theory, random signal analysis, equipment and initiation tests in vibration testing, modal analysis and correction, and machine health monitoring. Generally, the book is practice oriented with real-world examples, problems, laboratory experiments and a solutions manual, additionally, there are sufficient sections written from a theoretical perspective to allow the instructor to follow either an applied or theoretical track, at their discretion. In creating a book with this scope, Slater lays the foundation for more rigorous treatments of the subject, while training the engineer to be competent in testing.

Ageing and Life Extension of Offshore Structures: The Challenge of Managing Structural Integrity
A comprehensive overview of managing and assessing safety and functionality of ageing offshore structures and pipelines A significant proportion, estimated at over 50%, of the worldwide infrastructure of offshore structures and pipelines is in a life extension phase and is vulnerable to ageing processes. This book captures the central elements of the management of ageing offshore structures and pipelines in the life extension phase. The book gives an overview of: the relevant ageing processes and hazards; how ageing processes are managed through the life cycle, including an overview of structural integrity management; how an engineer should go about assessing a structure that is to be operated beyond its original design life, and how ageing can be mitigated for safe and effective continued operation. Key Features: Provides an understanding of ageing processes and how these can be mitigated. Applies engineering methods to ensure that existing structures can be operated longer rather than decommissioned unduly prematurely. Helps engineers performing these tasks in both evaluating the existing structures and maintaining ageing structures in a safe manner. The book gives an updated summary of current practice and research on the topic of the management of ageing structures and pipelines in the life extension phase but also meets the needs of structural engineering students and practicing offshore and structural engineers in oil & gas and engineering companies. In addition, it should be of value to regulators of the offshore industry.
