Efficient Modeling and Control of Large-Scale Systems by Athanasios C. Antoulas, Christopher A. Beattie, Serkan

By Athanasios C. Antoulas, Christopher A. Beattie, Serkan Gugercin (auth.), Javad Mohammadpour, Karolos M. Grigoriadis (eds.)

Complexity and dynamic order of managed engineering platforms is consistently expanding. complicated huge scale platforms (where "large" displays the system’s order and never unavoidably its actual dimension) seem in lots of engineering fields, comparable to micro-electromechanics, production, aerospace, civil engineering and tool engineering. Modeling of those structures usually bring about very high-order versions implementing nice demanding situations to the research, layout and keep an eye on difficulties. "Efficient Modeling and regulate of Large-Scale structures" compiles cutting-edge contributions on contemporary analytical and computational equipment for addressing version relief, functionality research and suggestions regulate layout for such structures. additionally addressed at size are new theoretical advancements, novel computational ways and illustrative functions to varied fields, in addition to: - An interdisciplinary concentration emphasizing equipment and ways that may be typically utilized in quite a few engineering fields -Examinations of functions in quite a few fields together with micro-electromechanical structures (MEMS), production approaches, strength networks, site visitors regulate "Efficient Modeling and keep watch over of Large-Scale platforms" is a perfect quantity for engineers and researchers operating within the fields of keep an eye on and dynamic systems.

Revision of loose femoral prostheses with a modular stem by Pierre Le Beguec, Hans-Peter Sieber

By Pierre Le Beguec, Hans-Peter Sieber

The writer of this multimedia paintings units himself an formidable aim: to permit a healthcare professional to accomplish the revision of a prosthesis with no too many problems (or an excessive amount of apprehension!) with assured effects if he follows the proposed strategy step-by-step, and this, no matter if he's not very skilled during this discipline.To fulfil this function, the writer presents a transparent definition of the press-fit thought (principles and functional functions) and from there, he deals a logical and rigorous technique for, to begin with, making plans the surgical procedure, after which, appearing it.The written textual content can be on hand as a automatic slide convey, coming with a searching process so as to make a pre-operative making plans, which provides genuine pedagogic worth to the entire of this paintings.
