Spacecraft attitude control is the process of controlling the orientation of a spacecraft (vehicle or satellite) with respect to an inertial frame of reference or another entity such as the celestial sphere, certain fields, and nearby objects, etc. It has become increasingly important: with the increasing number of human space launch activities, the number of failed spacecraft has increased dramatically in recent years. Attitude Takeover Control of Failed Spacecraft is both necessary and urgently required. This book provides an overview of the topic and the role of space robots in handling various types of failed spacecraft. The book divides the means of attitude takeover control into three types, including space manipulator capture, tethered space robot capture and cellular space robot capture.

Statistical Analysis for Civil Engineers: Mathematical Theory and Applied Experiment Design is a well-researched and topically organized reference book that guides its readers, both in academia and industry, to recognize how to describe unpredictable events in a quantitative way and to learn how these events can be incorporated into practical engineering analysis, facilitating data-driven problem solving and optimization-based decision-making. Written by experts in the field, with a proven track record as educators and practicing consultancy specialists, this book has been developed in such a manner that advances understanding of the mathematical theory underlying analytical methodology (including ANOVA single variable, linear regression, Monte Carlo simulation, and meta-analysis) gradually and supports practical application through relevant worked examples in a variety of civil engineering branches, notably structural, materials, transportation, and geotechnical engineering. Through all stages of data analysis, numerical modeling and simulation, and implementation, the volume emphasizes the need to change the current perception with respect to the use of modern statistical techniques in the scientific as well as practical spheres of civil engineering.
