This book presents the latest research findings in the field of maintenance and safety of aging infrastructure. The invited contributions provide an overview of the use of advanced computational and/or experimental techniques in damage and vulnerability assessment as well as maintenance and retrofitting of aging structures and infrastructures such as buildings, bridges, lifelines and ships. Cost-efficient maintenance and management of civil infrastructure requires balanced consideration of both structural performance and the total cost accrued over the entire life-cycle considering uncertainties. In this context, major topics treated in this book include aging structures, climate adaptation, climate change, corrosion, cost, damage assessment, decision making, extreme events, fatigue life, hazards, hazard mitigation, inspection, life-cycle performance, maintenance, management, NDT methods, optimization, redundancy, reliability, repair, retrofit, risk, robustness, resilience, safety, stochastic control, structural health monitoring, sustainability, uncertainties and vulnerability. Applications include bridges, buildings, dams, marine structures, pavements, power distribution poles, offshore platforms, stadiums and transportation networks. This up-to-date overview of the field of maintenance and safety of aging infrastructure makes this book a must-have reference work for those involved with structures and infrastructures, including students, researchers and practitioners.

From industrial and teaching experience the authors provide a blend of theory and practice of digital signal processing (DSP) for advanced undergraduate and post-graduate engineers reading electronics. This fast-moving, developing area is driven by the information technology revolution. It is a source book in research and development for embedded system design engineers, designers in real-time computing, and applied mathematicians who apph DSP techniques in telecommunications, aerospace (control systems), satellite communications, instrumentation, and medical technology (ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging). The book is particularly useful at the hardware end of DSP, with its emphasis on practical I)SP devices and the integration of basic processes with appropriate software. It is unique to find in one volume the implementation of the equations as algorithms, not only in \IATLAB but right up to a working DSP-based scheme. Other relevant architectural features include number representations, multiply-accumulate, special addressing modes, zero overhead iteration schemes. and single and multiple nlicroprocessors which will allow the readers to compare and understand both current processors and future DSP developments. Fundamental signal processing procedures are introduced and developed: also convolution. correlation, the Discrete Fourier Transform and its fast computation algorithms. Then follo finite impulse response (FIR) filters, infinite impulse response (IlR) filters, multirate filters, adaptive filters, and topics from communication and control. I)esign examples are given in all of these cases, taken through an algorithm testing stage using MATLAB. The design of the latter. using C language models, is explained together with the experimental results of real time integer implementations. Academic prerequisites are first and second year university mathematics, an introductor knowledge of circuit theor ‘and microprocessors. and C Language. Provides an unusual blend of theory and practice of digital signal processing (DSP) Discusses fundamental signal processing procedures, convolution, correlation, the Discrete Fourier Transform and its fast computation algorithms Includes number representations, multiply-accumulate, special addressing modes, zero overhead iteration schemes, and single and multiple instructions

Angesichts der Komplexität der Produkte der modernen Informatik wird eine saubere, theoretische Fundierung immer wichtiger. Das Buch wendet sich an Studierende im ersten Studienabschnitt und an Praktiker und gibt eine Einführung in die theoretischen und zumeist mathematischen Grundlagen der Informatik. Lesern ohne mathematische Vorbildung wird eine Vorstellung von der Denk- und Arbeitsweise der theoretischen Informatik vermittelt. Angesichts der Stoffülle und Komplexität dieses Gebietes werden detaillierte oder auch nur ausführlichere Kenntnisse in theoretischer Informatik wohl dem Spezialisten vorbehalten bleiben. Das Buch ist deshalb betont breit gehalten und zielt auf einen Überblick unterschiedlichster Techniken und Ansätze ab. Der Autor behandelt nach einer Einführung in mathematische Grundbegriffe die klassischen Themen wie formale Sprachen oder Berechenbarkeit, wendet sich aber auch der Semantik von Programmiersprachen und der Codierungstheorie zu und beantwortet die Frage, wie Information gemessen werden kann.
