This text covers the four forms of fire: diffusion flames, smoldering, spontaneous combustion, and premixed flames. Using a quantitative approach, the text introduces the scientific principles of fire behavior, with coverage of heat transfer, ignition, flame spread, fire plumes, and heat flux as a damage variable. Cases, examples, problems, selected color illustrations and review of mathematics help students in fire safety and... more...

The aim of this book is to motivate students into learning Machine Analysis by reinforcing theory and applications throughout the text. The author uses an enthusiastic 'hands-on' approach by including photos of actual mechanisms in place of abstract line illustrations, and directs students towards developing their own software for mechanism analysis using Excel & Matlab.

This book presents in detail an alternative approach to solving problems involving both linear and nonlinear oscillations of elastic distributed parameter systems. It includes the so-called variational, projection and iterative gradient methods, which, when applied to nonlinear problems, use the procedure of linearization of the original non-linear equations. These methods are not universal and require a different solution for each... more...

In this book a general matrix-based approach to modeling electricalmachines is promulgated. The model uses instantaneous quantitiesfor key variables and enables the user to easily take into accountassociations between rotating machines and static converters (suchas in variable speed drives).   General equations ofelectromechanical energy conversion are established early in thetreatment of the topic and then applied to synchronous, inductionand DC... more...

Presenting fresh and authoritative material onparallel manipulators that is not available in any other resource,it offers an in-depth treatment of position analysis, Jacobiananalysis, statics and stiffness analysis, and dynamical analysis ofboth types of manipulators,... more...


The revised edition of this advanced textbook provides the reader with a solid grounding in the formalism of classical mechanics, underlying a number of powerful mathematical methods that are widely used in modern theoretical and mathematical physics. It reviews the fundamentals of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, and goes on to cover related topics such as canonical transformations, integral invariants, potential motion in... more...

This fully revised and updated third edition covers the physical and mathematical fundamentals of vibration analysis, including single degree of freedom, multi-degree of freedom, and continuous systems. A new chapter on special topics that include motion control, impact dynamics, and nonlinear dynamics is added to the new edition. In a simple and systematic manner, the book presents techniques that can easily be applied to the analysis... more...

From the point of view of grid integration and operation, this monograph advances the subject of wind energy control from the individual-unit to the wind-farm level. The basic objectives and requirements for successful integration of wind energy with existing power grids are discussed, followed by an overview of the state of the art, proposed solutions and challenges yet to be resolved. At the individual-turbine level, a nonlinear controller based on... more...

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... more...
