Statistical tools for environmental quality measurement by Michael E Ginevan( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When interpreting environmental data, scientists and engineers first must select the correct statistical tool to use for their analysis. By doing this they will be able to make sound decisions in their efforts to solve environmental problems. They need a detailed reference that points out the subtle differences between statistical procedures, making clear what procedure to use when trying to find the answer to a specific problem. Statistical Tools for Environmental Quality Measurement provides a detailed review of statistical tools used in analyzing and addressing environmental issues. This book examines commonly-used techniques found in USEPA guidelines and discusses their potential impact on decision-making. The authors are not constrained by statistical formalism; they advise when to go outside of standard statistical models when making difficult decisions. The content is presented in a practical style that prioritizes methods that work, based upon the authors' extensive experience. The text points out that simplicity facilitates effective communication of an analysis and decision to a "consumer" of statistics. The book emphasizes the exact question that each procedure addresses, so that environmental scientists and engineers can clearly identify precisely the question they want to ask, and correctly interpret the results.

Surfactants in tribology by Girma Biresaw( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surfactants play a critical role in tribology, as they help control friction and wear, while also controlling lubricant properties such as emulsification, demulsification, bioresistance, oxidation resistance, rust prevention, and corrosion resistance. This unique work brings together recent advances in the use of surfactants. Edited by a leading pioneer in the field, with chapters written by international experts, its chapters address theoretical, technical, and experimental aspects. It considers the role of surfactants in SAMS, MEMS, NEMS, manufacturing, automotive, rail, light and heavy machinery, and biomedical applications. This work will be of special interest to those interested in gaining an understanding of surfactants in tribology at the nanoscale

Propagation handbook for wireless communication system design by Robert K Crane( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data and models for better systems designAtmospheric gases, building materials, the weather a The propagation of wireless communications signals depends upon a whole range of factors, any or all of which can have a significant impact on the quality of a signal. Data generated by careful measurement of signals propagating under various environmental conditions are therefore fundamental to designing and building efficient, robust, and economical communication systems. This handbook presents models that describe that data and make predictions for conditions that will affect operational systems. The author-chair of the science panel for the ACTS propagation experiment-focuses on EM waves of 0.3 to 300 GHz propagating through the lower atmosphere. The handbook describes the physical phenomena that can affect propagation, presents sample measurements and statistics, and provides models that system designers can use to calculate their link budgets and estimate the limitations the atmosphere could place on their designs. Communications engineers around the world need this information readily at hand, not scattered throughout the literature.; For engineers and systems designers involved in communications, navigation, radar, or remote sensing, the Propagation Handbook for Wireless Communication System Design will quickly become a standard and heavily relied-upon reference

Hard disk drive : mechatronics and control by Abdullah Al Mamun( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The hard disk drive is one of the finest examples of the precision control of mechatronics, with tolerances less than one micrometer achieved while operating at high speed. Increasing demand for higher data density as well as disturbance-prone operating environments continue to test designers' mettle. Explore the challenges presented by modern hard disk drives and learn how to overcome them with Hard Disk Drive: Mechatronics and Control. Beginning with an overview of hard disk drive history, components, operating principles, and industry trends, the authors thoroughly examine the design and manufacturing challenges. They start with the head positioning servomechanism followed by the design of the actuator servo controller, the critical aspects of spindle motor control, and finally, the servo track writer, a critical technology in hard disk drive manufacturing. By comparing various design approaches for both single- and dual-stage servomechanisms, the book shows the relative pros and cons of each approach. Numerous examples and figures clarify and illustrate the discussion. Exploring practical issues such as models for plants, noise reduction, disturbances, and common problems with spindle motors, Hard Disk Drive: Mechatronics and Control avoids heavy theory in favor of providing hands-on insight into real issues facing designers every day
