Probabilistic Methods Applied to Electric Power Systems contains the proceedings of the First International Symposium held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on July 11-13, 1986. The papers explore significant technical advances that have been made in the application of probability methods to the design of electric power systems. This volume is comprised of 65 chapters divided into 10 sections and begins by discussing the probabilistic methodologies used in the assessment of power system reliability and structural design. The following chapters focus on the applications of probabilistic techniques to the analysis and design of transmission systems and structures; evaluation of design and reliability of distribution systems; system planning; and assessment of performance of transmission system components such as insulators, tower joints, and foundations. The probability-based procedures for dealing with data bases such as wind load and ice load are also considered, along with the effects of weather-induced loads on overhead power lines and the use of probability methods in upgrading existing power lines and components. The final section deals with applications of probability methods to power system problems not covered in other chapters. This book will be of value to engineers involved in uprating, designing, analyzing, and assessing reliability of transmission and distribution systems.

Concise International Encyclopedia of Robotics Edited by Richard C. Dorf This condensed version of the highly successful 3-volume work is a tightly drawn compendium of existing robotic knowledge and practice, culled from over 300 leading authorities worldwide. The encyclopedia's top-down approach includes coverage of robots and their components, characteristics, design, application, as well as their social impact and economic value. The text also includes a look at robot vision, robots in Japan and Western Europe, as well as prognostications on the state of robotics in the year 2000 and beyond. Fully cross-referenced, this accessible, easy-to-use guide is suitable to the everyday needs of professionals and students alike. 1990 (0 471-51698-8) 1,190 pp. Robot Analysis and Control Haruhiko Asada and Jean-Jacques E. Slotine Developed out of the authors' coursework at MIT, here is a clear practical introduction to robotics, with a firm emphasis on the physical aspects of the science. Described in depth are the fundamental kinematic and dynamic analysis of manipulator arms, as well as the key techniques for trajectory control and compliant motion control. The comprehensive text is supported by a wealth of examples, most of which have been drawn from industrial practice or advanced research topics. Problem sets at the end of the book complement the text's rigorously instructional tone. 1986 (0 471-83029-1) 266 pp. Robot Wrist Actuators Mark E. Rosheim Viewed through lucid diagrammatic and isometric drawings, photographs, and illustrations, the complex morphologies of robot wrists are made instantly tangible in this graphics oriented approach to the science. Also catalogued are a host of wrist actuator designs-progressing from the simple to the more sophisticated as wall as a look at wrists of the past, now in use, and under development. The author provides his own successful wrist actuator techniques and methods and the culminating designs. This is a fascinating first look at robotics for the designer, engineer, and student interested in developing the skills requisite for innovation. 1989 (0 471-61595-1) 271 pp.

VLSI Electronics Microstructure Science, Volume 17: VLSI in Medicine deals with the more important applications of VLSI in medical devices and instruments. This volume is comprised of 11 chapters. It begins with an article about medical electronics. The following three chapters cover diagnostic imaging, focusing on such medical devices as magnetic resonance imaging, neurometric analyzer, and ultrasound. Chapters 5, 6, and 7 present the impact of VLSI in cardiology. The electrocardiograph, implantable cardiac pacemaker, and the use of VLSI in Holter monitoring are detailed in these chapters. The neurostimulator is described in Chapter 8. Chapter 9 discusses both implantable and external drug infusion pumps and describes the use of VLSI in a particular external pump. The last two chapters cover topics that apply to the entire field of medical electronics. Engineers, scientists, medical practitioners and researchers will find the book very useful.

VLSI Electronics Microstructure Science, Volume 11: GaAs Microelectronics presents the important aspects of GaAs (Gallium Arsenide) IC technology development ranging from materials preparation and IC fabrication to wafer evaluation and chip packaging. The volume is comprised of eleven chapters. Chapter 1 traces the historical development of GaAs technology for high-speed and high-frequency applications. This chapter summarizes the important properties of GaAs that serve to make this material and its related compounds technologically important. Chapter 2 covers GaAs substrate growth, ion implantation and annealing, and materials characterization, technologies that are essential for IC development. Chapters 3-6 describe the various IC technologies that are currently under development. These include microwave and digital MESFET ICs, the most mature technologies, and bipolar and field-effect heterostructure transistor ICs. The high-speed capability of GaAs ICs introduces new problems, on-wafer testing and packaging. These topics are discussed in Chapters 7 and 8. Applications for GaAs ICs are covered in Chapters 9 and 10. The first of these chapters is concerned with high speed computer applications; the second addresses military applications. The book concludes with a chapter on radiation effects in GaAs ICs. Scientists, engineers, researchers, device designers, and systems architects will find the book useful.

Probabilistic Methods In The Theory Of Structures Strength Of Materials Random Vibrations And Random Buckling

The first edition of this book appeared over three decades ago (Wiley-Interscience, 1983), whereas the second one saw light on the verge of new millennium (Dover, 1999). This is third, corrected and expanded edition that appears in conjunction with its companion volume Probabilistic Methods in the Theory of Structures: Complete Worked-Through Solutions. Thus, the reader is able to both get acquainted with the theoretical material and be able to master some of the problems, following Chinese dictum: I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand — Confucius. The main idea of the book lies in the fact that three topics: probabilistic strength of materials, random vibrations, and probabilistic buckling are presented in a single package allowing one to see the forest in between the trees. Indeed, these three topics usually are presented in separate manners, in different specialized books. Here, the reader gets a feeling of true unity of the subject at large in order to appreciate that in the end what one wants is reliability of the structure, in conjunction with its operating conditions. As the author describes in the Preface of the second edition, this book was not conceived ab initio, as a book that author strived to compose. Rather, it was forced, as it were, upon me due to two reasons. One was rather a surprising but understandable requirement in the venerable Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands to prepare the lecture notes for students with the view of reducing skyrocketing costs of acquisition of textbooks by the students. The other one was an unusually warm acceptance of the notes that the author prepared while at Delft University of Technology and later in Haifa, at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology by the legendary engineering scientist Warner Tjardus Koiter (1914–1997). The energy necessary to prepare the second and third editions came from enthusiastic reviews that appeared in various sources. Author embraced the simplicity of exposition as the main virtue following Isaac Newton's view that "Truth is ever to be found in simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things."
