Because of the books extraordinary breadth and depth, adequate coverage of all of the material requires two full semesters of a typical three-credit course. Since most curricula do not have the luxury of allocating this amount of time to mechanical behavior of materials, the text has been designed so that material can be culled or deleted with ease. Instructors can select topics they wish to emphasize and are able to proceed at any level they consider appropriate.
The AMTA2016 received more than 150 submissions, but only 59 articles were selected to be included in this proceedings, which are organized into 7 chapters; covering Chemical Materials, composite and Nano Materials, Polymer and Concrete Materials, Structural Materials, Metal and Alloy Materials, Electrical Materials, and Biomaterials.
The following topics are developed: damage modeling; damage evaluation and rupture; strain localization and instability analysis; formability characterization; prediction of shape inaccuracies; influence of defects on structural integrity. The main manufacturing operations are covered and various materials are examined, such as new and conventional metal alloys, ceramics, polymers and composites.
With in-depth reviews from leading contributors, the text develops an understanding of the breadth and depth of advances in the field. It begins with a broad introduction to advanced structural materials, then examines materials at the frontiers of emerging applications such as biomaterials, MEMS, amorphous materials, and nanotechnology. The chapter authors are experts in their own right and they assume no prior knowledge of a given material system, delineating the fundamental concepts and applications of advanced structural materials. The rich array of carefully selected topics provides useful insights into the structure, properties, and applications of advanced structural materials.
Satellite technology will maintain its key role in the evolving communications needs of government, military, IPTV, and mobile video industries because of its intrinsic multicast/broadcast capabilities, mobility aspects, global reach, reliability, and ability to quickly support connectivity in open-space or hostile environments. At a different level, Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) technology is now being deployed around the world to provide true explicit end-to-end device addressability, as evidenced by onboard IP and IPv6 routers that will enable future satellites to facilitate intelligent traffic distribution. In the final analysis, the integration of satellite communication and IPv6 capabilities promises a powerful networking infrastructure to serve all enterprises.
Tangible Results to Illustrate Evolving IPv6 Applications
Satellite Systems Engineering in an IPv6 Environment will aid U.S. government agencies and other ventures that rely on satellite systems by elucidating the critical interplay and overlaying of IP(v6) routing over a satellite-based transmission channel. This forward-looking and pragmatic review of communications and engineering in emerging IPv6 environments focuses more on functional engineering results and less on derivation of mathematical equations, applying transmission theory to TCP/IP packet applications such as government communications, sensor networks, IPTV distribution, and delivery of TV signals to phones.
A Practical Review of the Bleeding Edge of Technology
As billions of intelligent systems require direct access, IPv6 becomes an institutional imperative. An IPv6 primer, this book considers newly evolving applications, focusing first on traditional issues and then on the new technology. The author’s simplified treatment of complex topics enables you to grasp them and extract the details you require to stay competitive and up to date.
Mechanical engineering the book provides good essential reference that can give you an approach on a wide range of aspects related to this engineering subject.
The book written in simple language to describe each topic in a brief manner that offers optimum support to the learners. The book of Mechanical Engineering covers engineering material, material testing, heat engines, IC engines, control, mechanical measurement, machine tools, design, and manufacturing to understand mechanical systems.
