Physical Processes and Measurement Devices

Physical Processes and Measurement Devices

Author: Jean-Michel Tanguy Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/10/2010

This series of five volumes proposes an integrated description of physical processes modeling used by scientific disciplines from meteorology to coastal morphodynamics. Volume 1 describes the physical processes and identifies the main measurement devices used to measure the main parameters that are indispensable to implement all these simulation tools. Volume 2 presents the different theories in an integrated approach: mathematical models as well as conceptual models, used by all disciplines to represent these processes. Volume 3 identifies the main numerical methods used in all these scientific fields to translate mathematical models into numerical tools. Volume 4 is composed of a series of case studies, dedicated to practical applications of these tools in engineering problems. To complete this presentation, volume 5 identifies and describes the modeling software in each discipline.

Messen, Steuern und Regeln mit Word und Excel

Messen, Steuern und Regeln mit Word und Excel

Author: Burkhard Kainka Format: eBook Release Date: 27/11/2009

Die PC-gestutzte Mess-, Steuerungs- und Regelungstechnik hat nicht nur in der Industrie, sondern auch im Hobbybereich und in der Ausbildung erhebliche Bedeutung erlangt. Fur kleinere und weniger aufwendige Anwendungen haben sich Interfaces an der seriellen Schnittstelle bewahrt, die meist mit spezieller Ansteuerungssoftware eingesetzt werden. Die Anwendungen reichen von der einfachen Messwerterfassung mit Digitalmultimetern uber die Steuerung von Bewegungsmodellen bis hin zu komplexen Regelungssystemen. Vielfach wurde bisher mit getrennten Programmen zur Messwerterfassung und -auswertung gearbeitet, was allerdings oft zu einer aufwendigen Datenkonvertierung fuhrte.

MSR mit C-Control M-Unit 2

MSR mit C-Control M-Unit 2

Author: Stefan Tappertzhofen Format: eBook Release Date: 27/11/2009

Mikrocontroller sind im Automatisierungsbereich tonangebend. Wo fruher teure und komplex aufgebaute Schaltungen verwendet wurden, sind heute leistungsstarke und extrem preisgunstige Mikrocontrollersysteme im Einsatz. Die breite Produktpalette bietet dabei Losungen fur den privaten, aber auch professionellen und industriellen MSR-Bereich an. Ein wichtiges Mikrocontroller-Auswahlkriterium ist neben dem Preis- Leistungs-Verhaltnis auch die erforderliche Einarbeitungszeit. Hier sticht besonders das seit Jahren bewahrte C-Control-Mikrocontrollersystem der Firma Conrad Electronic hervor. In der Generation 2.0 prasentiert es sich hinsichtlich Hard- und Software nun mit einer geradezu unglaublichen Leistungsvielfalt.

Other new topics and information include: Calibration and re-ranging updates for process calibrators, comparators, and other new test instruments; digital transmitter and communication updates, including Hart, Foundation Fieldbus, wireless transmitters, and multivariable and differential pressure transmitters and applications; added emphasis on non-contact level measurement; advances in hydrostatic tank gauging (HTG); and, improved density sensors and new applications.

Hybrid Simulation Theory, Implementation and Applications

Hybrid Simulation Theory, Implementation and Applications

Author: Victor (University of Colorado at Boulder, USA) Saouma Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/07/2008

Hybrid Simulation deals with a rapidly evolving technology combining computer simulation (typically finite element) and physical laboratory testing of two complementary substructures. It is a cost effective alternative to shaking table test, and allows for the improved understanding of complex coupled systems. Traditionally, numerical simulation and physical tests have been uncoupled and performed separately. In this simulation paradigm the coupled nature of the simulation allows for improved understanding, and more efficient design since the factor of safety does not have to be arbitrarily inflated to account for uncertainties of uncoupling. It is a multidisciplinary technology which relies heavily on control theory, computer science, numerical techniques and finds applications in aerospace, civil, and mechanical engineering.

Modelling and Estimation Strategies for Fault Diagnosis of Non-Linear Systems

Modelling and Estimation Strategies for Fault Diagnosis of Non-Linear Systems

Author: Marcin Witczak Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/04/2007

This monograph presents a variety of techniques that can be used for designing robust fault diagnosis schemes for non-linear systems. The introductory part of the book is of a tutorial value and can be perceived as a good starting point for the new-comers to this field. Subsequently, advanced robust observer structures are presented. Parameter estimation based techniques are discussed as well. A particular attention is drawn to experimental design for fault diagnosis. The book also presents a number of robust soft computing approaches utilizing evolutionary algorithms and neural networks. All approaches described in this book are illustrated by practical applications.
