Revival: Twelfth International Conference on Adaptive Structures and Technologies (2002)

1st Edition

Norman Wereley, Inderjit Chopra, Darryll J Pines
January 25, 2019

This paper reviews some of the important technical barriers that must be overcome to achieve truly efficient flying adaptive micro air vehicles (MAVs). As defined by the Defense Advanced Research Agency (DARPA), MAVs are vehicles with no length dimension greater than 6 inches. These vehicles...

Introduction to Mechanics

1st Edition

Mahendra K. Verma
January 21, 2019

A modern introduction to Newtonian dynamics and the basics of special relativity, this book discusses standard topics such as Newton’s laws of motion, energy, linear and angular momentum, rigid body dynamics, and oscillations, then goes on to introduce modern topics such as symmetries, phase space,...

Bio-Climatology for Built Environment

1st Edition

Masanori Shukuya
January 18, 2019

Indoor climate is determined by rational lighting, heating, cooling and ventilating systems. For occupants' well-being it should be consistent with how regional outdoor climate works in the flow of radiation via four paths of heat transfer: radiation; convection; conduction; and evaporation. This...
