Featured eBooks: Engineering

Mechanics, Models and Methods in Civil Engineering. This book collects leading papers dealing with actual Civil Engineering problems. The approach is in the line of the Italian-French school and therefore deeply couples mechanics and mathematics creating new predictive theories, enhancing clarity in understanding, and improving effectiveness in applications.
Applied Data Analysis and Modeling for Energy Engineers and Scientists. This book demonstrates how to apply concepts and methods learned in disparate courses such as mathematical modeling, probability, statistics, experimental design, regression, model building, optimization, risk analysis and decision-making to actual engineering processes and systems. The text provides a formal structure that offers a basic, broad and unified perspective,while imparting the knowledge, skills and confidence to work in data analysis and modeling. 



Nonlinear Control of Vehicles and Robots. This book develops a unified approach to the dynamic modeling of robots in terrestrial, aerial and marine environments. To begin with, the main classes of nonlinear systems and stability methods are summarized. Basic nonlinear control methods useful in manipulator and vehicle control – linearization, backstepping, sliding-mode and receding-horizon control – are presented. Formation control of ground robots and ships is discussed.
