Because plates and shells are common structural elements in aerospace, automotive, and civil engineering structures, engineers must understand the behavior of such structures through the study of theory and analysis. Compiling this information into a single volume, Theory and Analysis of Elastic ...

There has been great interest in "universal controllers" that mimic the functions of human processes to learn about the systems they are controlling on-line so that performance improves automatically. Neural network controllers are derived for robot manipulators in a variety of applications ...

Predictive control is a powerful tool in dealing with those processes with large time delays. Generalized Predictive Control GPC is the most popular approach to the subject, and this text discusses the application of GPC starting with the concept of long-range predictive control and its need in ...

In the formation of any control problem there will be discrepancies between the actual plant and the mathematical model for controller design. Sliding mode control theory seeks to produce controllers to over some such mismatches. This text provides the reader with a grounding in sliding mode ...

This text deals with the most fundamental deficiency of modern theory control: the lack of an easily applicable method for the design of low order controllers. It shows that solutions to many different problems in control all reduce to the same linear algebra problem. It employs matrix equalities ...

This work presents approaches to modelling and control problems arising from conditions of ever increasing nonlinearity and complexity. It prescribes an approach that covers a wide range of methods being combined to provide multiple model solutions. Many component methods are described, as well as ...
