Mechanical Engineering: Principles of Armament Design

Mechanical Engineering: Principles of Armament Design Lowest new price: $38.00
Lowest used price: $82.88
List price: $38.00
Author: H. Peter

A sequel to Armament Engineering: A Computer Aided Approach, by the same author, this book is an amazingly simplified approach to the design of large caliber gun systems. Although it presupposes proficiency in essential mechanical design, it is adequately self-contained. The book aims to familiarize the engineer with mechanical engineering principles which underlie numerous designs of large caliber gun systems.

The book contains six chapters with illustrative design exercises fully supported by programmes and spreadsheets on a CD ROM. All the design exercises are based on factual data. Chapter 1 covers monobloc and autofrettaged gun barrels, vibration effects and chamber design. The second chapter handles breech assemblies and the dynamics of semi automatic mechanisms. Chapter 3 covers hydro pneumatic recoil systems exhaustively. The fourth chapter is devoted to balancing gears and the last two chapters effectively deal with elevating and traversing mechanism design. Finally all the data the student is likely to require is included in an exhaustive appendix. Interwoven with a wealth of practical and theoretical information, this volume, with its attached CD ROM is a must for military colleges offering gun design as a specialization.

Fundamentals of Statistical Signal Processing, Volume I: Estimation Theory (v. 1)

Fundamentals of Statistical Signal Processing, Volume I: Estimation Theory  (v. 1) Lowest new price: $105.00
Lowest used price: $104.00
List price: $137.00
Author: Steven M. Kay

A unified presentation of parameter estimation for those involved in the design and implementation of statistical signal processing algorithms. Covers important approaches to obtaining an optimal estimator and analyzing its performance; and includes numerous examples as well as applications to real- world problems. MARKETS: For practicing engineers and scientists who design and analyze signal processing systems, i.e., to extract information from noisy signals — radar engineer, sonar engineer, geophysicist, oceanographer, biomedical engineer, communications engineer, economist, statistician, physicist, etc.

This text is geared towards a one-semester graduate-level course in statistical signal processing and estimation theory. The author balances technical detail with practical and implementation issues, delivering an exposition that is both theoretically rigorous and application-oriented. The book covers topics such as minimum variance unbiased estimators, the Cramer-Rao bound, best linear unbiased estimators, maximum likelihood estimation, recursive least squares, Bayesian estimation techniques, and the Wiener and Kalman filters. The author provides numerous examples, which illustrate both theory and applications for problems such as high-resolution spectral analysis, system identification, digital filter design, adaptive beamforming and noise cancellation, and tracking and localization. The primary audience will be those involved in the design and implementation of optimal estimation algorithms on digital computers. The text assumes that you have a background in probability and random processes and linear and matrix algebra and exposure to basic signal processing. Students as well as researchers and practicing engineers will find the text an invaluable introduction and resource for scalar and vector parameter estimation theory and a convenient reference for the design of successive parameter estimation algorithms.

The Lazy Universe: An Introduction to the Principle of Least Action

The Lazy Universe: An Introduction to the Principle of Least Action Lowest new price: $35.95
Lowest used price: $35.75
List price: $39.95
Author: Jennifer Coopersmith
Brand: Ingramcontent

This is a rare book on a rare topic: it is about 'action' and the Principle of Least Action. A surprisingly well-kept secret, these ideas are at the heart of physical science and engineering. Physics is well known as being concerned with grand conservatory principles (e.g. the conservation of energy) but equally important is the optimization principle (such as getting somewhere in the shortest time or with the least resistance). The book explains: why an optimization principle underlies physics, what action is, what `the Hamiltonian' is, and how new insights into energy, space, and time arise. It assumes some background in the physical sciences, at the level of undergraduate science, but it is not a textbook. The requisite derivations and worked examples are given but may be skim-read if desired.

The author draws from Cornelius Lanczos's book "The Variational Principles of Mechanics" (1949 and 1970). Lanczos was a brilliant mathematician and educator, but his book was for a postgraduate audience. The present book is no mere copy with the difficult bits left out - it is original, and a popularization. It aims to explain ideas rather than achieve technical competence, and to show how Least Action leads into the whole of physics.

Lowest used price: $290.59
List price: $519.00
Author: M.Y.H. Bangash
Brand: M Y H Bangash

This concise work provides a general introduction to the design of buildings which must be resistant to the effect of earthquakes. A major part of this design involves the building structure which has a primary role in preventing serious damage or structural collapse. Much of the material presented in this book examines building structures. Due to the recent discovery of vertical components, it examines not only the resistance to lateral forces but also analyses the disastrous influence of vertical components.

The work is written for Practicing Civil, Structural, and Mechanical Engineers, Seismologists and Geoscientists. It serves as a knowledge source for graduate students and their instructors.
