Hydraulics and Pneumatics: A Technician's and Engineer's Guide provides an introduction to the components and operation of a hydraulic or pneumatic system. This book discusses the main advantages and disadvantages of pneumatic or hydraulic systems. Organized into eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of industrial prime movers. This text then examines the three different types of positive displacement pump used in hydraulic systems, namely, gear pumps, vane pumps, and piston pumps. Other chapters consider the pressure in a hydraulic system, which can be quickly and easily controlled by devices such as unloading and pressure regulating valves. This book discusses as well the importance of control valves in pneumatic and hydraulic systems to regulate and direct the flow of fluid from compressor or pump to the various load devices. The final chapter deals with the safe-working practices of the systems. This book is a valuable resource for process control engineers.

Thirty years ago, biologists could get by with a rudimentary grasp of mathematics and modeling. Not so today. In seeking to answer fundamental questions about how biological systems function and change over time, the modern biologist is as likely to rely on sophisticated mathematical and computer-based models as traditional fieldwork. In this book, Sarah Otto and Troy Day provide biology students with the tools necessary to both interpret models and to build their own. The book starts at an elementary level of mathematical modeling, assuming that the reader has had high school mathematics and first-year calculus. Otto and Day then gradually build in depth and complexity, from classic models in ecology and evolution to more intricate class-structured and probabilistic models. The authors provide primers with instructive exercises to introduce readers to the more advanced subjects of linear algebra and probability theory. Through examples, they describe how models have been used to understand such topics as the spread of HIV, chaos, the age structure of a country, speciation, and extinction. Ecologists and evolutionary biologists today need enough mathematical training to be able to assess the power and limits of biological models and to develop theories and models themselves. This innovative book will be an indispensable guide to the world of mathematical models for the next generation of biologists. A how-to guide for developing new mathematical models in biology Provides step-by-step recipes for constructing and analyzing models Interesting biological applications Explores classical models in ecology and evolution Questions at the end of every chapter Primers cover important mathematical topics Exercises with answers Appendixes summarize useful rules Labs and advanced material available

Tensor Product Model Transformation in Polytopic Model Based Control

Tensor Product Model Transformation in Polytopic Model-Based Control offers a new perspective of control system design. Instead of relying solely on the formulation of more effective LMIs, which is the widely adopted approach in existing LMI-related studies, this cutting-edge book calls for a systematic modification and reshaping of the polytopic convex hull to achieve enhanced performance. Varying the convexity of the resulting TP canonical form is a key new feature of the approach. The book concentrates on reducing analytical derivations in the design process, echoing the recent paradigm shift on the acceptance of numerical solution as a valid form of output to control system problems. The salient features of the book include: Presents a new HOSVD-based canonical representation for (qLPV) models that enables trade-offs between approximation accuracy and computation complexity Supports a conceptually new control design methodology by proposing TP model transformation that offers a straightforward way of manipulating different types of convexity to appear in polytopic representation Introduces a numerical transformation that has the advantage of readily accommodating models described by non-conventional modeling and identification approaches, such as neural networks and fuzzy rules Presents a number of practical examples to demonstrate the application of the approach to generate control system design for complex (qLPV) systems and multiple control objectives. The authors’ approach is based on an extended version of singular value decomposition applicable to hyperdimensional tensors. Under the approach, trade-offs between approximation accuracy and computation complexity can be performed through the singular values to be retained in the process. The use of LMIs enables the incorporation of multiple performance objectives into the control design problem and assurance of a solution via convex optimization if feasible. Tensor Product Model Transformation in Polytopic Model-Based Control includes examples and incorporates MATLAB® Toolbox TPtool. It provides a reference guide for graduate students, researchers, engineers, and practitioners who are dealing with nonlinear systems control applications.

Signal processing is now a multidisciplinary topic, and one that has applications in many fields including, but not limited to, science, engineering, medicine, finance and the behavioural sciences. Modern software libraries that include dedicated languages and packages designed to simplify the development and application of signal processing techniques are now readily available; however this ease of application means that an understanding of the various techniques is imperative. It is critical that the student or practitioner is able to choose an appropriate processing technique, be aware of potential errors involved and understand how to control them. Discover Signal Processing exploits the rationale of “learning by doing”; actually attempting and performing a task is the most effective way to remember and understand. It presents the reader with a diverse range of exercises; some intended to recall or practice simple concepts, others more complex & aimed at developing a real understanding of the issues involved. These are accompanied by step-by-step explanations of the tools and techniques required. Provides systematic, organized and accessible instruction in a complex and mathematical subject. Stresses the understanding, selection and application of available signal processing techniques, as well as identification and control of error mechanisms; Includes more than 60 exercises covering major aspects of signal processing tools & geared at performing or testing specific tasks; Uses MATLAB as a platform, utilizing its extensive GUI capabilities enabling exercises to be performed using graphical elements only. Discover Signal Processing provides an excellent & accessible guide to signal processing for mechanical, aeronautical, civil and electronic engineers in their senior/ graduate year. It will also be of interest to those attending CPD courses as well as to practicing engineers.

The tools of spectral analysis are applied via graphics to musical sounds, especially those coming from a piano, in an attempt to determine the different frequencies that make up the sound waves and therefore to gain insight. The emphasis is on pictures and verbiage rather than mathematics. It is hoped that music professionals, performers, teachers, and retailers will think about the everyday sounds in their professional life in a different way after reading thisbook. On the other hand, engineers and scientists will perhaps be intrigued with the way the technical tools of their profession can be used to study musical phenomena that they usually enjoy after thework day is over. Therefore this book is directed toward two groups of readers that have little in common other than a love of music.
