Decision Making Models: A Perspective of Fuzzy Logic and Machine Learning presents the latest developments in the field of uncertain mathematics and decision science. The book aims to deliver a systematic exposure to soft computing techniques in fuzzy mathematics as well as artificial intelligence in the context of real-life problems and is designed to address recent techniques to solving uncertain problems encountered specifically in decision sciences. Researchers, professors, software engineers, and graduate students working in the fields of applied mathematics, software engineering, and artificial intelligence will find this book useful to acquire a solid foundation in fuzzy logic and fuzzy systems.Other areas of note include optimization problems and artificial intelligence practices, as well as how to analyze IoT solutions with applications and develop decision-making mechanisms realized under uncertainty.
Introduction to Python and Spice for Electrical and Computer Engineers introduces freshman and sophomore engineering students to programming in Python and Spice through engaged, problem-based learning and dedicated Electrical and Computer Engineering content. This book draws its problems and examples specifically from Electrical and Computer Engineering, covering such topics as matrix algebra, complex exponentials and plotting using examples drawn from circuit analysis, signal processing, and filter design. It teaches relevant computation techniques in the context of solving common problems in Electrical and Computer Engineering.This book is unique among Python textbooks for its dual focus on introductory-level learning and discipline-specific content in Electrical and Computer Engineering. No other textbook on the market currently targets this audience with the same attention to discipline-specific content and engaged learning practices. Although it is primarily an introduction to programming in Python, the book also has a chapter on circuit simulation using Spice. It also includes materials helpful for ABET-accreditation, such information on professional development, ethics, and lifelong learning.
Distributed Optimization and Learning: A Control-Theoretic Perspective illustrates the underlying principles of distributed optimization and learning. The book presents a systematic and self-contained description of distributed optimization and learning algorithms from a control-theoretic perspective. It focuses on exploring control-theoretic approaches and how those approaches can be utilized to solve distributed optimization and learning problems over network-connected, multi-agent systems. As there are strong links between optimization and learning, this book provides a unified platform for understanding distributed optimization and learning algorithms for different purposes.
Biorefinery of Industrial Effluents for a Sustainable Circular Economy provides a combined approach on environmental engineering, which involves the improvement of the natural environment or remediation of polluted sites. In addition, it discusses bioprocess engineering involving the development of processes for the manufacture of products from biological materials to produce a valuable bioproduct. It covers sources, impacts, and applications of industrial effluents that could potentially be used as feedstock for the IEB with examples of applied research that demonstrates the relationship between the effluents, biorefinery, treatment and bioproduct recovery.Materials that can be produced from IEB and the treatment processes for such are considered.
Beam to Square Steel Tube Endplate Connection Using Thread-fixed One-side Bolts: Analysis and Design provides research information on thread-fixed one-side bolt (TOB), which is anchored through screwed threads in the bolt hole. Although beam-column endplate connections have been studied by many researchers and been widely used in engineering applications, the standard high strength bolts are not convenient for the bolted beam to square tube column endplate connection. The one-side bolts, which can be installed and tightened from outside of the tube column, provide a solution for beam to closed section column bolted connections.This book introduces the basic principles and design methods regarding the failure modes, and the design method of load carrying capacity of endplate connection using thread-fixed one-side bolts.
Materials and Structures in Cold Regions: The Impact of Low Temperatures on Construction Materials and the Structural Behaviour of Structural Members is based on the latest research undertaken at Tianjin University, P.R. China and National University of Singapore. The book provides detailed experimental research on the influences of low temperatures on the mechanical properties of constructional materials and structural behavior of typical structural members at low temperatures, e.g., beams, columns, and walls. The theoretical and numerical models in the book on structural members at low temperatures simplifies and provides guidelines for structural engineers working on cold-region projects.The book blends the fundamental development of concepts with the practical specification of materials and structures at low temperatures.
Steel-Concrete-Steel Sandwich Composite Walls covers key aspects of steel-concrete-steel sandwich composite walls, including: an analysis and design and their loading carrying capacities when subjected to different loading scenarios, e.g., bending, shear, punching, compression, in-plane and out-of-plane shear, etc.; analyzes the basic resistance of the steel-concrete-steel walls; and covers the use of such structures under particular seismic conditions. Such structures combine the advantages of steel and reinforced concrete structures with wide advantages, e.g., it permits prefabrication, increases the construction efficiency, shortens construction period, saves formwork and manpower, and provides high resistance to blast and impact loads.Steel-concrete-steel sandwich composite walls, as a representative structural element of steel-concrete-steel sandwich structures, have been used as the nuclear shielding walls in the new generation nuclear power plant, shield tunnels in Japan, immersed tunnels, ice-resisting walls for Arctic offshore platforms, shear walls in high-rise buildings.
Nanomechanics of Structures and Materials: Modeling and Analysis highlights and compares the advantages and disadvantages of varied modeling and analyzation methods for a broad array of different nanostructures and nanomaterials. It focuses on the behavior of media with nanostructural features where the classic continuum theory does not apply and augmented continuum theories such as nonlocal theory, gradient theory of elasticity, and the surface elasticity model must be used. These theories and models are discussed at length and their application to a variety of different materials and structures, including graphene, shells, arches, nanobeams, carbon nanotubes, porous materials, and more are covered.
