CONTINUUM MECHANICS and Elements of Elasticity/Structural Mechanics

In the humble opinion of the author, this is best achieved in three stages. First, the student should be exposed to the basic principles of Continuum Mechanics. Detailed coverage of Stress, Strain, General Principles, and Constitutive Relations is essential. Then, a brief exposure to Elasticity (along with Beam Theory) would convince the student that a well posed problem can indeed have an analytical solution. However, this is only true for problems problems with numerous simplifying assumptions (such as linear elasticity, small deformation, plane stress/strain or axisymmetry, and resultants of stresses). Hence, the last stage consists in a brief exposure to solid mechanics, and more precisely to Variational Methods. Through an exposure to the Principle of Virtual Work, and the Rayleigh-Ritz Method the student will then be ready for Finite Elements. Finally, one topic of special interest to Material Science students was added, and that is the Theoretical Strength of Solids. This is essential to properly understand the failure of solids, and would later on lead to a Fracture Mechanics course.

Materials for High-Density Electronic Packaging and Interconnection

What is packaging? The subject of this report is commonly referred to as electronic packaging, but the term '"packaging" carries connotations that tend to trivialize the highly technical and critically important electronic context. Electronic packaging now goes well beyond physical protection and includes electric power distribution, signal transmission between integrated circuits, and, of growing importance, the removal of heat associated with the very high densities of circuit elements that are being achieved. Modern system performance is as much limited by these functions as by the operation of the integrated circuits.

LED for Lighting Applications

Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are no longer confined to use in commercial signage and have now moved firmly, and with unquestioned advantages, into the field of commercial and domestic lighting. This development was prompted in the late 1980s by the invention of the blue LED, a wavelength that had previously been missing from the available LED spectrum and which opened the way to providing white light. Since that point, LED performance (including energy efficiency) has improved dramatically, and now compares with the performance of fluorescent lights - and there remain further performance improvements yet to be delivered.The book begins with the principles of LED lighting, then focuses on issues and challenges. Chapters are devoted to key steps in LED manufacturing: substrate, epitaxy, process and packaging. Photoelectric characterization of LEDs, Lighting with LEDs and the imposition of a certain level of color quality, are the subject of later chapters, and finally there is a detailed discussion of the emergence of OLEDs, or organic LEDs, which have specific capabilities of immediate interest and importance in this field.

Power Systems Analysis (2nd Edition)

This is the first book on power system analysis to explore the major changes in the structure and operation of the electric utility industry, and to show how power system operation will be affected by the new changes. It reflects the trends in state-of-the-art, computer-based power system analysis and shows how to apply each modern analysis tool in designing and improving an expansion of an existing power system. KEY FEATURES: Features a computer-based design example (carried out from chapter-to-chapter) which uses all the analysis. As the example develops, readers determine the parameter values for a proposed transmission system upgrade to support load growth and a new steel mill being located in the area; convert all the parameters to per unit -- the preferred choice of units for system analysis; determine typical parameters for the generators in the system being designed; develop the admittance matrix and the impedance matrix for the system being designed; conduct the power flow and check the designed system for possible violations, and appropriately modify the design; and conduct a contingency analysis on the designed system; analyze the behavior of the designed system under faulted condition; continue the design with a selection of relay settings to protect the system in the event of these faulted conditions; and perform a transient stability simulation on the system and verify the ability of the system to remain stable. For engineers working in the electric utility industry.

Complete Digital Design

There are over 350,000 electrical and electronics engineers, and hundreds of thousands more electronics technicians and hobbyists. With the addition of so many communications topics into EE programs in the past 5 years, fundamentals of digital design have been abandoned for briefer, overview courses, leaving many newly-minted EEs undereducated in what should be one of their core competencies. In order to design and implement digital systems, one must understand and navigate many components, architectures, and practices which are painfully inter-dependent. This book will allow the reader faced with a design problem to develop a customized set of requirements for that problem, then research and evaluate available components and technologies to solve it.

Principles of Modern Digital Design

A major objective of this book is to fill the gap between traditional logic design principles and logic design/optimization techniques used in practice. Over the last two decades several techniques for computer-aided design and optimization of logic circuits have been developed. However, underlying theories of these techniques are inadequately covered or not covered at all in undergraduate text books. This book covers not only the "classical" material found in current text books but also selected materials that modern logic designers need to be familiar with.

From Boolean Logic to Switching Circuits and Automata

Logic networks and automata are facets of digital systems. The change of the design of logic networks from skills and art into a scientific discipline was possible by the development of the underlying mathematical theory called the Switching Theory. The fundamentals of this theory come from the attempts towards an algebraic description of laws of thoughts presented in the works by George J. Boole and the works on logic by Augustus De Morgan.As often the case in engineering, when the importance of a problem and the need for solving it reach certain limits, the solutions are searched by many scholars in different parts of the word, simultaneously or at about the same time, however, quite independently and often unaware of the work by other scholars. The formulation and rise of Switching Theory is such an example.This book presents a brief account of the developments of Switching Theory and highlights some less known facts in the history of it. The readers will find the book a fresh look into the development of the field revealing how difficult it has been to arrive at many of the concepts that we now consider obvious . Researchers in the history or philosophy of computing will find this book a valuable source of information that complements the standard presentations of the topic.
