By Allen T Chwang, Michelle H Teng, Daniel T Valentine

This quantity offers forty unique papers on fresh advances in different themes in engineering mechanics provided on the Theodore Y-T Wu Symposium on Engineering Mechanics: a party of Professor Wu's clinical contributions for his eightieth birthday. the prestigious individuals contain numerous participants of the nationwide Academy of Engineers and the subjects hide nonlinear water waves, swimming and flying in nature, biomechanics, facts research technique, and propulsion hydrodynamics. The papers honor the numerous accomplishments of Professor Wu in Engineering technology at Caltech, really within the components of nonlinear waves, hydrodynamics, biomechanics and wave-structure interplay. They evaluation the current cutting-edge of engineering mechanics, and chart the way forward for the sphere from the point of view of civil engineering, biomechanics, geophysics, mechanical engineering, naval structure, ocean, and offshore engineering. the first goal of this booklet is to supply suggestions and thought for these drawn to carrying on with to enhance engineering mechanics into the twenty first century. to cite Professor Wu: "The worth of a publication ebook lies in disseminating new wisdom attained with attempt and commitment from all those that take part, and in having the valuable effects inside of prepared succeed in of scholars and researchers actively operating within the field."

Solitons in mathematics and physics

The soliton is a dramatic proposal in nonlinear technological know-how. What makes this ebook exact within the remedy of this topic is its concentrate on the homes that make the soliton bodily ubiquitous and the soliton equation mathematically mind-blowing. right here, at the classical point, is the entity box theorists were postulating for years: an area touring wave pulse; a lump-like coherent constitution; the answer of a box equation with extraordinary balance and particle-like houses.

Synthetic Impulse and Aperture Radar (SIAR): A Novel Multi-Frequency MIMO Radar

Analyzes and discusses the working precept, sign processing process, and experimental result of this complex radar technologyThis e-book systematically discusses the working precept, sign processing technique, objective size expertise, and experimental result of a brand new type of radar known as artificial impulse and aperture radar (SIAR).

Localization of steady Stokes waves As a first application of the evolution equations, we examine the limiting case of a steady wave train. There is no dependence on ( x l,tl, tz), so that A = A(x2). Eq. (15) reduces to aA C - ialAI2A - $A = 0, ax2 + where wk2(cosh4kh+8-2tanh2 kh) > 0. 16sinh4 kh The solution to (32) is a modified Stokes wave exponentially attenuated (localized) in the direction of propagation, a= 36 where a0 is the real amplitude at 2 2 = 0 and pT, pi are the real and imaginary parts of p, respectively.
