Due to their efficient mechanical properties, light weight, and low noise during operation, plastic gears are replacing metallic gears in traditional and new applications. However, due to a lack of material characterization and complex relations between different geometric and operating parameters, polymer gear design remains an open challenge.This book serves as a comprehensive and professional guide on polymer gears design and processing. It will provide the reader with current developments carried out in the field of plastic gears production, characterization, and applications. This will include material development, tribological properties, simulations, and processing methods.
Encyclopedia of Quaternary Science, Third Edition, Five Volume Set, brings together the multidisciplinary expertise needed to understand the history of humans, life, environmental and climate change, and understand what we may expect over the coming decades.Quaternary Science comprises studies of the physical and biological world during the time of continental glaciations in the last 2.6 million years. This interval is critical to our understanding of the modern world, as the current flora, fauna, and physical environment have been shaped by events in the Quaternary. The Quaternary is the only geological period with one foot in the past and one foot in the present.Since publication of the previous edition, our understanding of many topics has been revolutionized by new discoveries and new techniques. The development of ancient DNA studies, for example, has revolutionized our thinking about the origins, dispersal, and population dynamics of our ancestors. Every new aDNA analysis from ancient human remains causes the story to become more complex. We are the sole survivors of the genus Homo, yet we harbor genetic fragments from other closely related but long-extinct lineages.The Quaternary is uniquely situated as a laboratory in which to study the shaping of the modern world, including biotic responses to large-scale environmental change. This new edition of Encyclopedia of Quaternary Science is the most comprehensive account of state-of-the-art research in the field.
Handbook of Statistical Analysis: AI and ML Applications, Third Edition, is a comprehensive introduction to all stages of data analysis, data preparation, model building and model evaluation. This valuable resource is useful to students and professionals across a variety of fields and settings: business analysts, scientists, engineers and researchers in academia and industry. General descriptions of algorithms together with case studies help readers understand technical and business problems, weigh the strengths and weaknesses of modern data analysis algorithms, and employ the right analytical methods for practical application. This resource is an ideal guide for users who want to address massive and complex datasets with many standard analytical approaches and be able to evaluate analyses and solutions objectively. It includes clear, intuitive explanations of the principles and tools for solving problems using modern analytic techniques; offers accessible tutorials; and discusses their application to real-world problems.

The classic textbook from Pijush Kundu, Fluid Mechanics, has been once again revised and updated by Dr. David Dowling to better illustrate this important subject for modern students. With topics and concepts presented more clearly and concisely than ever before, Fluid Mechanics, Seventh Edition guides students from the fundamentals to the analysis and application of fluid mechanics, including compressible flow and such diverse applications as aerodynamics and geophysical fluid mechanics. Its broad and deep coverage continues to be ideal for both a first or second course in fluid mechanics at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level, and is well-suited to the needs of modern scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and others seeking fluid mechanics knowledge.
Engineering Analysis: Advanced Mathematical Methods for Engineers introduces graduate engineering students to the fundamental but advanced mathematics tools used in engineering application, especially in mechanical, aerospace and civil engineering. Most engineering problems are described by differential equations, particularly partial differential equations (PDEs). Deformation and failure in solid structures, fluid flow, heat transfer, and mass diffusion are all governed by PDEs in general. Many physical quantities in engineering are tensors, including deformation gradient, strain rates, stresses, elastic stiffness, and thermal conductivity of composite materials. This book helps engineering graduate students develop the skills to establish the mathematical models of engineering problems and to solve the problems described by the mathematical models.
The Encyclopedia of Electrochemical Power Sources, Second Edition, Five Volume Set is a truly interdisciplinary reference for those working with batteries, fuel cells, electrolyzers, supercapacitors, and photo-electrochemical cells. With a focus on the environmental and economic impact of electrochemical power sources, this five-volume work consolidates coverage of the field and serves as an entry point to the literature for professionals and students alike.Since the first edition published in 2009, the field of electrochemical power sources has registered tremendous growth and development. The market for batteries alone has doubled in size, many conventional systems have been further improved and new systems introduced. Completely revised, and now thematically arranged, the new edition of the Encyclopedia of the Electrochemical Power Sources covers all the scientific, technical, and economic developments in the field of electrochemical power sources in the past decade.
Signals and Systems Using MATLAB, Fourth Edition, features a pedagogically rich and accessible approach to what can commonly be a mathematically dry subject. Historical notes and common mistakes combined with applications in controls, communications and signal processing help students understand and appreciate the usefulness of the techniques described in the text. This new edition features more worked examples and a variety of new end-of-chapter problems, suggestions for labs, and more explanation of MATLAB code.
Graph Based Multimedia Analysis applies graph theory to the problems of analyzing an over-abundance of video data. Video data can be diverse: exocentric (captured by standard camera) or egocentric (captured by a wearable device like Google glass); of various durations; from multiple sources. Efficient extraction of important/useful information from such a large class of diverse inputs can be overwhelming. The book, with its rich repertoire of theoretically elegant solutions, empowers the audience to achieve tasks like obtaining concise yet useful summary and precisely recognizing single as well as multiple actions in a computationally efficient manner.
Unlike metals, non-metallic electro-conductive textiles are polymeric, flexible, durable, moldable, and light weight. A brilliant quality of these textiles is the capability to alter conductivity through various external stimuli (e.g., strain, torsion, pH, humidity) to suit a specific application such as sensors, heating garments, EMI shielding, energy harvesting devices, wearable electronics and more.Based on these concepts, the title has been structured into three main sections. Section I contains chapters discussing the various preparation methods of electro-conductive textiles, Section II contains chapters on their characteristics and features and Section III details the end-use applications and sustainability of these textiles.
