Topology Optimization in Engineering Structure Design

Weihong Zhang, Jihong Zhu, Tong Gao
  • Book
  • B-ELS-131
Published 2016-11-08 by Elsevier in United Kingdom
"Topology Optimization in Engineering Structure Design explores the recent advances and applications of topology optimization in engineering structures design, with a particular focus on aircraft and aerospace structural systems. To meet the increasingly complex engineering challenges provided by rapid developments in these industries, structural optimization techniques have developed in conjunction with them over the past two decades. The latest methods and theories to improve mechanical performances and save structural weight under static, dynamic and thermal loads are summarized and explained in detail here, in addition to potential applications of topology optimization techniques such as shape preserving design, smart structure design and additive manufacturing. These new design strategies are illustrated by a host of worked examples, which are inspired by real engineering situations, some of which have been applied to practical structure design with significant effects.  Written from a forward-looking applied engineering perspective, the authors not only summarize the latest developments in this field of structure design but also provide both theoretical knowledge and a practical guideline.  This book should appeal to graduate students, researchers and…

Optimization of Manufacturing Systems Using the Internet of Things

Yingfeng Zhang, Fei Tao
  • Book
  • B-ELS-141
Published 2016-10-21 by Elsevier in United Kingdom
"Optimization of Manufacturing Systems Using the Internet of Things extends the IoT (Internet of Things) into the manufacturing field to develop an IoMT (Internet of Manufacturing Things) architecture with real-time traceability, visibility, and interoperability in production planning, execution, and control. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the optimization and control of an intelligent manufacturing system. As modern manufacturing shop-floors can create bottlenecks in the capturing and collection of real-time field information, and because paper-based manual systems are time-consuming and prone to errors, this book helps readers understand how to alleviate these issues, assisting them in their decision-making on shop-floors.

Power Ultrasonics

Juan A. Gallego-Juarez, Karl F. Graff
  • Book
  • B-ELS-142
Published 2016-10-21 by Elsevier in United Kingdom
"The industrial interest in ultrasonic processing has revived during recent years because ultrasonic technology may represent a flexible, green alternative for more energy efficient processes. A challenge in the application of high-intensity ultrasound to industrial processing is the design and development of specific power ultrasonic systems for large scale operation. In the area of ultrasonic processing in fluid and multiphase media, the development of a new family of power generators with extensive radiating surfaces has significantly contributed to the implementation at industrial scale of several applications in sectors such as the food industry, environment, and manufacturing. Part one covers fundamentals of nonlinear propagation of ultrasonic waves in fluids and solids. It also discusses the materials and designs of power ultrasonic transducers and devices. Part two looks at applications of high-power ultrasound in materials engineering and mechanical engineering, food processing technology, environmental monitoring and remediation and industrial and chemical processing (including pharmaceuticals), medicine and biotechnology.

Materials Processing

Lorraine F. Francis
  • Book
  • B-ELS-135
Published 2015-12-28 by Elsevier in United Kingdom
Materials Processing is the first textbook to bring the fundamental concepts of materials processing together in a unified approach that highlights the overlap in scientific and engineering principles. It teaches students the key principles involved in the processing of engineering materials, specifically metals, ceramics and polymers, from starting or raw materials through to the final functional forms. Its self-contained approach is based on the state of matter most central to the shaping of the material: melt, solid, powder, dispersion and solution, and vapor. With this approach, students learn processing fundamentals and appreciate the similarities and differences between the materials classes. The book uses a consistent nomenclature that allow for easier comparisons between various materials and processes. Emphasis is on fundamental principles that gives students a strong foundation for understanding processing and manufacturing methods. Development of connections between processing and structure builds on students' existing knowledge of structure-property relationships. Examples of both standard and newer additive manufacturing methods throughout provide students with an overview of the methods that they will likely encounter in their careers. This…

Commercial Aircraft Hydraulic Systems

Shaoping Wang, Hong Liu, Mileta M. Tomovic
  • Book
  • B-ELS-117
Published 2015-10-23 by Elsevier in United Kingdom
Commercial Aircraft Hydraulic Systems focuses on the operational principles and design technology of aircraft hydraulic systems, including the hydraulic power supply and actuation system and describing new types of structures and components such as the 2H/2E structure design method and the use of electro hydrostatic actuators (EHAs). Based on the commercial aircraft hydraulic system, this is the first textbook that describes the whole lifecycle of integrated design, analysis, and assessment methods and technologies, enabling readers to tackle challenging high-pressure and high-power hydraulic system problems in university research and industrial contexts.

Handbook of Offshore Helicopter Transport Safety

Michael J. Taber
  • Book
  • B-ELS-123
Published 2015-10-07 by Elsevier in United Kingdom
Handbook of Offshore Helicopter Transport Safety offers guidance for offshore helicopter operators, survival instructors and the global offshore workforce. It also explores topics including safety management systems, safety briefings, survival equipment, underwater egress training, water impact/ditching statistics, and search and rescue. Each area of interest will detail pertinent information spanning approximately 30 years of offshore operations. The first four chapters look at helicopter transport safety, safety regulations and standards. Subsequent chapters cover Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET) programs, their development and training, followed by three final chapters on the effects of HUET, Emergency Breathing Systems (EBS) and Helicopter Transportation Suit (HTS).
