Uncertainty Quantification in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Aircraft Engines, Second Edition

Uncertainty Quantification in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Aircraft Engines, Second Edition by Francesco Montomoli
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 204 Pages | ISBN : 3319929429 | 9.50 MB

This book introduces design techniques developed to increase the safety of aircraft engines, and demonstrates how the application of stochastic methods can overcome problems in the accurate prediction of engine lift caused by manufacturing error. This in turn addresses the issue of achieving required safety margins when hampered by limits in current design and manufacturing methods. The authors show that avoiding the potential catastrophe generated by the failure of an aircraft engine relies on the prediction of the correct behaviour of microscopic imperfections. This book shows how to quantify the possibility of such failure, and that it is possible to design components that are inherently less risky and more reliable.

Computational Geomechanics and Hydraulic Structures

Computational Geomechanics and Hydraulic Structures by Sheng-Hong Chen
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 908 Pages | ISBN : 9811081344 | 50.79 MB

This book presents recent research into developing and applying computational tools to estimate the performance and safety of hydraulic structures from the planning and construction stage to the service period. Based on the results of a close collaboration between the author and his colleagues, friends, students and field engineers, it shows how to achieve a good correlation between numerical computation and the actual in situ behavior of hydraulic structures.

It might seem unlikely that a midwestern university located far from national media centers would be home to the world’s first journalism school, but the University of Missouri holds that distinction.

Computational Models of Rhythm and Meter

Computational Models of Rhythm and Meter by Georg Boenn
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 191 Pages | ISBN : 3319762842 | 8.88 MB

This book presents the latest computational models of rhythm and meter that are based on number theory, combinatorics and pattern matching. Two computational models of rhythm and meter are evaluated: The first one explores a relatively new field in Mathematics, namely Combinatorics on Words, specifically Christoffel Words and the Burrows-Wheeler Transform, together with integer partitions. The second model uses filtered Farey Sequences in combination with specific weights that are assigned to inter-onset ratios. This work is assessed within the context of the current state of the art of tempo tracking and computational music transcription. Furthermore, the author discusses various representations of musical rhythm, which lead to the development of a new shorthand notation that will be useful for musicologists and composers.

Nonlinear Dynamics in Computational Neuroscience

Nonlinear Dynamics in Computational Neuroscience by Fernando Corinto
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 150 Pages | ISBN : 3319710478 | 12.57 MB

This book provides an essential overview of computational neuroscience. It addresses a broad range of aspects, from physiology to nonlinear dynamical approaches to understanding neural computation, and from the simulation of brain circuits to the development of engineering devices and platforms for neuromorphic computation. Written by leading experts in such diverse fields as neuroscience, physics, psychology, neural engineering, cognitive science and applied mathematics, the book reflects the remarkable advances that have been made in the field of computational neuroscience, an emerging discipline devoted to the study of brain functions in terms of the information-processing properties of the structures forming the nervous system. The contents build on the workshop “Nonlinear Dynamics in Computational Neuroscience: from Physics and Biology to ICT,” which was held in Torino, Italy in September 2015.
