Mechanical Engineering 45 Probabilistic Finite Element Model Updating Using Bayesian Statistics Applications to Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering Tshilidzi Marwala, Ilyes Boulkaibet & Sondipon Adhikari ●● The book covers probabilistic finite element model updating, achieved using Bayesian statistics ●● The Bayesian framework is employed to estimate the probabilistic finite element models which take into account of the uncertainties in the measurements and the modelling procedure. The Bayesian formulation achieves this by formulating the finite element model as the posterior distribution of the model given the measured data within the context of computational statistics and applies these in aeronautical and mechanical engineering ●● Contains simple explanations of computational statistical techniques such as Metropolis-Hastings Algorithm, Slice sampling, Markov Chain Monte Carlo method, hybrid Monte Carlo as well as Shadow Hybrid Monte Carlo and their relevance in engineering Print ISBN: 978-1-119-15303-0 (Cloth) US$130.00 • DEC 2016 • 256PP ISBN 978-1-119-15303-0 9 781119 153030 e Stochastic Dynamics of Structures Abdelkhalak El Hami & Radi Bouchaib ●● Dedicated to the general study of the dynamics of mechanical structures with consideration of uncertainties ●● Presents a study of structural optimization Print ISBN: 978-1-848-21949-6 (Cloth) US$124.95 • Nov 2016 • 240PP Stochastic Dynamics of Structures ISBN 978-1-84821-949-6 9 781848 219496 Control Process & Measurements Process Control System Fault Diagnosis A Bayesian Approach Ruben Gonzalez, Fei Qi & Biao Huang ●● A comprehensive coverage of Bayesian Inference for control system fault diagnosis ●● Theory and applications are self-contained ●● Provides detailed algorithms and sample Matlab codes ●● Theory is illustrated through benchmark simulation examples, pilot-scale experiments and industrial application Print ISBN: 978-1-118-77061-0 (Cloth) US$140.00 • Sep 2016 • 368PP ISBN 978-1-118-77061-0 9 781118 770610 e Failure Fracture Control of Cracking in Reinforced Concrete Structures Brice Delaporte ●● Provides guidelines which can extend the existing standards and codes to cover these types of special works, especially those which are massive in nature, taking account of their specific behaviour in terms of cracking and shrinkage together with other important properties such as water/ air leak tightness Print ISBN: 978-1-786-30052-2 (Cloth) US$119.95 • Dec 2016 • 256PP ISBN 978-1-78630-052-2 9 781786 300522
