  • Example of Response Estimation

    This is the first full exposition in print of a subject in whose development over the past fifteen years the author has been a prime participant. As an approach to the study of mechanical vibrations, statistical energy analysis (SEA) has found new applications and adherents with each passing year. The name SEA was coined to emphasize the essential feature of the approach: "Statistical" indicates that the dynamical systems under study are presumed to be drawn from statistical populations or ensembles in which the distribution of the parameters is known. "Energy" denotes the primary variable of interest. "Analysis" is used to underscore the fact that SEA is a general framework of methods rather than a particular technique.Vibration is a ubiquitous problem for mechanical engineers, especially those concerned with the design of aircraft, spacecraft launch vehicles, ships, and similar structures composed of such elements as plates and beams. SEA provides the designer with a method for estimating the response characteristics of such structures to vibratory excitations, from which he can predict the potential for structural fatigue, component failure, and human discomfort caused by noise or excessive vibration levels. SEA is particularly appropriate in applications involving relatively large and lightweight structures, such as those designed for aerospace use. These statistical models are also helpful to mechanical designers who are charged with making environmental and vibratory response estimates at a stage in a project whese structural detail is not yet known. Moreover, SEA provides an approach to a number of vibration problems that cannot, from a practical viewpoint, be solved by classical methods.

    Electrical Engineering/Communications/Information Theory "The Berlekamp article alone will make this book worth having." --David Forney, Vice President, Motorola Codex Reed-Solomon Codes and Their Applications Edited by Stephen B. Wicker, Georgia Institute of Technology and Vijay K. Bhargava, University of Victoria On the Voyager spacecraft, they were responsible for sending clear pictures of the planets back to earth. They have also played a key role in the digital audio revolution. They are Reed-Solomon error codes: the extremely powerful codes that provide critical error control for many different types of digital communications systems. This outstanding collection of thirteen original articles written by leading researchers in the field provides a uniquely comprehensive overview of the history and practical applications--some never before published--of these important codes. Key features include: * Thirteen original articles from leading researchers in the field, with a historical overview by Reed and Solomon * An explanation of how Reed-Solomon codes were used in the Voyager spacecraft and how they are currently used in the compact disc player * Specific applications for digital audio, data transfer over mobile radio, satellite communications, spread spectrum systems, and more * New techniques for improving the performance of your own communications systems This book will be of interest to design and research engineers in the telecommunications field, particularly those in the aerospace/satellite and mobile radio industries. It is also well-suited for use as an advanced-level textbook on the subject of error control coding. Books of Related Interest from IEEE Press Clauide Elwood Shannon: Collected Papers Edited by N. J.
