The book presents a new boundary element formulation for the solution of boundary-value problems in potential theory and linear elastostatics. The basis of the approach is a multifield variational principle. A stiffness type of formulation is generated, involving a symmetric stiffness matrix, which is only evaluated on the boundary. The formulation is completely developed and its implementation in computer code is explained in detail. Several numerical examples are shown and the solutions are compared to analytical and to other approximate solutions. Further, a study of the convergence of the solutions is presented. This monograph on numerical methods, boundary elements, finite elements, hybrid models is intended for graduate students, engineers and researchers.
Remote Sensing is the method of measurement of the object properties on the Earth's surface using data acquired from aircraft and satellites. This method makes it possible to carry out the measurement from the distance for the purpose of this research and to display those measurements over a two-dimensional spatial grid, i.e. images. Remote Sensing method, which is based on the data accessed from satellites, provides an opportunity to observe and monitor the Earth, collect appropriate information with further processing and integration of the Geographic Information System. This book's aim is to reveal the opportunities of the application of Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System advances in wide areas of engineering applications through analyzing its own achievements and challenges as well as creative sources existing in the indicated area. This book examines the conceptual aspects of Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System. Its applications are based on implemented projects and its outcomes found a perfect reliable place in the field of engineering.
Achieving enterprise success necessitates addressing enterprises in ways that match the complexity and dynamics of the modern enterprise environment. However, since the majority of enterprise strategic initiatives appear to fail - among which those regarding information technology - the currently often practiced approaches to strategy development and implementation seem more an obstacle than an enabler for strategic enterprise success.
Two themes underpin the fundamentally different views outlined in this book. First, the competence-based perspective on governance, whereby employees are viewed as the crucial core for effectively addressing the complex, dynamic and uncertain enterprise reality, as well as for successfully defining and operationalizing strategic choices. Second, enterprise engineering as the formal conceptual framework and methodology for arranging a unified and integrated enterprise design, which is a necessary condition for enterprise success.
Jan Hoogervorst's presentation, which is based on both research and his professional background at Sogeti B.V., aims at professionals in management and consulting as well as students in management science and business information systems.
Totally revised, this 2nd Edition includes a new chapter on decision analysis, and additional material on computer solutions of linear programming problems, LP applications, the use of sensitivity analysis output, minimal spanning tree, goal programming, network of queues, and more. Throughout, mathematics is kept to an intermediate level.
During recent years a great deal of progress has been made in performance modelling and evaluation of the Internet, towards the convergence of multi-service networks of diverging technologies, supported by internetworking and the evolution of diverse access and switching technologies. The 44 chapters presented in this handbook are revised invited works drawn from PhD courses held at recent HETNETs International Working Conferences on Performance Modelling and Evaluation of Heterogeneous Networks. They constitute essential introductory material preparing the reader for further research and development in the field of performance modelling, analysis and engineering of heterogeneous networks and of next and future generation Internets. The handbook aims to unify relevant material already known but dispersed in the literature, introduce the readers to unfamiliar and unexposed research areas and, generally, illustrate the diversity of research found in the high growth field of convergent heterogeneous networks and the Internet. The chapters have been broadly classified into 12 parts covering the following topics: Measurement Techniques; Traffic Modelling and Engineering; Queueing Systems and Networks; Analytic Methodologies; Simulation Techniques; Performance Evaluation Studies; Mobile, Wireless and Ad Hoc Networks, Optical Networks; QoS Metrics and Algorithms; All IP Convergence and Networking; Network Management and Services; and Overlay Networks.
