The Rayleigh-Ritz Method for Structural Analysis

Sinniah Ilanko, University of Waikato, New Zealand Luis E. Monterrubio, Robert Morris University, PA, USA with assistance from Yusuke Mochida, University of Waikato, New Zealand

In many practical engineering problems, it is neither possible nor convenient to develop exact solutions. A convenient method for solving such problems originated from attempts to calculate natural frequencies and modes of structures. This method is known as the Rayleigh–Ritz Method or simply the Ritz Method.
This book is a presentation of the theory behind the Rayleigh–Ritz (R–R) method, as well...

Non-volatile Memories

Pierre Camille Lacaze, University of Denis Diderot, Paris, France Jean-Christophe Lacroix, University of Denis Diderot, Paris, France

The reflection in terms of the optimization of data storage and processing speeds has recently led to new criteria for the functioning of electronic memories of the future. These memories, while consuming a very small amount of energy, should be able to ensure both archiving functions (data conservation over periods longer than 10 years) and be able to carry out logic operations at very high speed...

Aeronautical Air–Ground Data Link Communications

FOCUS Series in Networks and Telecommunications

Mohamed Slim Ben Mahmoud, Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile, France Christophe Guerber, Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile, France Nicolas Larrieu, Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile, France Alain Pirovano, Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile, France José Radzik, Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace, France

Due to both the constant increase in air traffic and the migration of air–ground communications from analog voice to digital data, the current, emerging and future communication systems are facing a tremendous challenge: to provide efficient links with suitable capacity, availability and integrity.
The aviation industry and airlines are expecting researchers, engineers and technicians to define, ...

Recommender Systems

Edited by Gérald Kembellec, University of Lille 3, France Ghislaine Chartron, CNAM, France Imad Saleh, University of Paris 8, France

Elected by the different content platforms (books, music, films) and online sales sites, recommender systems are the key elements of digital strategies. If their development was originally aimed at the performance of information systems, the issues today have been moved to a great extent to optimization logic of the client relationship, with the main objective being to maximize potential sales.

Radio Frequency Identification and Sensors

From RFID to Chipless RFID

Etienne Perret, Grenoble Institute of Technology, France

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is based on the exchange of information carried by electromagnetic waves between a label, or tag, and a readerfor the purpose of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. This technology is currently in full economic expansion, manifested inits widely backed research activities, some of which are examined in this book. The rate at which ...

Value and Economy of Marine Resources

Seas and Oceans Set – Volume 6

Edited by André Monaco, CNRS, France Patrick Prouzet, Ifremer, France

The books brought together in the “Seas and Oceans” Set make up a multi-disciplinary and systemic approach to the complexity, vulnerability, productivity and exploitation of the marine environment that is today faced with global change. This set of books does not simply describe and analyze the mechanisms that act on how these environments work, but it also presents a cross-disciplinary approach, ...
