RFID and Wireless Sensors using Ultra-Wideband Technology

Remote Identification Beyond RFID Set

Angel Ramos, Grenoble-INP, France Antonio Lazaro, Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Spain David Girbau, Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Spain Ramon Villarino, Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Spain

This book explores ultra-wideband (UWB) technology for radio frequency identification (RFID).
RFID is one of the fastest growing sectors in radio technology. RFID systems were initially developed to overcome the limitations of barcodes in terms of spatial constraints, by using antennas and electromagnetic waves. Recently, RFID has also been used to develop smart autonomous sensors, enhancing the...

Multiscale Structural Topology Optimization

Liang Xia, Laboratory of Multiscale Modelling and Simulation, University of Paris-Est, France

In recent years, there has been an increasing use of high-performance heterogeneous materials such as fibrous composites, concrete, metallic porous materials and metal alloys for their advantageous overall characteristics, which result in superior structural mechanical responses and service performance. Though from a structural point of view these materials can be considered homogeneous and conven...

Numerical Methods for Inverse Problems

Michel Kern, Inria Research Center, Paris, France

This book studies methods to concretely address inverse problems. An inverse problem arises when the causes that produced a given effect must be determined or when one seeks to indirectly estimate the parameters of a physical system.
The author uses practical examples to illustrate inverse problems in physical sciences. He presents the techniques and specific methods chosen to solve inverse probl...

Qualitative Analysis of Nonsmooth Dynamics

A Simple Discrete System with Unilateral Contact and Coulomb Friction

Alain Léger, CNRS, Marseille, France Elaine Pratt, Aix-Marseille University, France

This book investigates the behavior of simple nonsmooth mechanical systems where the nonsmoothness arises from non-regularized unilateral contact and Coulomb friction.
The authors focus on Coulomb friction to discuss how regularization greatly simplifies the mathematics behind this dynamics but may remove the main qualitative features and thus lead to non-physical properties. The book explores ...

Interpolation and Extrapolation Optimal Designs 1

Polynomial Regression and Approximation Theory

Giorgio Celant, University of Padua, Italy Michel Broniatowski, University Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris, France

This book is the first of a series which focuses on the interpolation and extrapolation of optimal designs, an area with significant applications in engineering, physics, chemistry and most experimental fields.
In this volume, the authors emphasize the importance of problems associated with the construction of design. After a brief introduction on how the theory of optimal designs meets the theor...

Micromechanics of Fracture and Damage

Micromechanics Set - Volume 1

Luc Dormieux, Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées, Marne-la-Vallée, France Djimédo Kondo, Sorbonne University, Paris, France

This book deals with the mechanics and physics of fractures at various scales. Based on advanced continuum mechanics of heterogeneous media, it develops a rigorous mathematical framework for single macrocrack problems as well as for the effective properties of microcracked materials. In both cases, two geometrical models of cracks are examined and discussed: the idealized representation of the c...

Phase Transformations

Chemical Thermodynamics Set Volume 5

Michel Soustelle, Ecole des Mines, Saint-Etienne, France

This book is part of a set of books which offers advanced students successive characterization tool phases, the study of all types of phase (liquid, gas and solid, pure or multi-component), process engineering, chemical and electrochemical equilibria, and the properties of surfaces and phases of small sizes. Macroscopic and microscopic models are in turn covered with a constant correlation between...

New Autonomous Systems

Reliability of Multiphysical Systems Set - Volume 1

Alain Cardon and Mhamed Itmi, INSA Rouen, France

The idea of autonomous systems that are able to make choices according to properties which allow them to experience, apprehend and assess their environment is becoming a reality. These systems are capable of auto-configuration and self-organization.
This book presents a model for the creation of autonomous systems based on a complex substratum, made up of multiple electronic components that deplo...

Daily Knowledge Valuation in Organizations

Traceability and Capitalization

Edited by Nada Matta, University of Technology of Troyes, France Hassan Atifi, University of Technology of Troyes, France Guillaume Ducellier, University of Technology of Troyes, France

One of the major challenges for modern organizations is the management of individual and collective knowledge, which is at the root of specific practices designed to optimize knowledge acquisition, maintenance and application. There are, however, still a disproportionately low number of studies focused on the structure and nature of knowledge.
This book tackles the subject of daily knowledge: the...

Design Constraints for NFC Devices

Dominique Paret, Consultant

Near field communication (NFC) can appear to be a simple intuitive technology for exchanging data between close devices. In reality, these contactless structures that combine components and antennas must respect important and specific working constraints.
Illustrated by a number of detailed technological examples, this book discusses the multiple normative (ISO, CEN, NFC Forum, EMVCo, etc.) and ...
