Описание: Wiley currently publishes two of the best books in this subject area. Brookner is a new title aimed at an introductory market, while Brown is a classic. Grewal's book complements these books by extending the range to cover GPS/INS applications in detail. Grewal's PH book is also a classic, and publication of this book at Wiley will further solidify our position in this area. This book is intended for people who need to combine Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), Inertial Navigation Systems (INS), and Kalman filters. The objective is to give our readers a working familiarity with both the theoretical and practical aspects of these subjects. The accompanying CD-ROM contains MATLABTM m-files to demonstrate the workings of the Kalman filter algorithms with GNSS and INS data sets, so that the reader can better discover how the Kalman filter works by observing it in action with GNSS and INS. This second edition includes some significant changes in GPS/INS technology since 2001, including: 1. New signal structures for GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO. 2. New developments in augmentation systems for satellite navigation, including (a) Wide Area Differential GPS (WADGPS) (b) Local Area Differential GPS (LADGPS) (c) Space Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) (d) Ground Based Augmentation Systems (GBAS) 3. Recent improvements in multipath mitigation techniques, and new clock steering algorithms. 4. A new chapter on satellite system integrity monitoring. 5. More thorough coverage of INS technology, including development of error models and simulations in MATLAB for demonstrating system performance. 6. A new chapter on GPS/INS integration, includingMATLAB simulations of different levels of tight/loose coupling.
Описание: The field of radionavigation signals and systems has seen great growth in recent years. Satellite systems are very efficient but, due to their limited coverage and/or availability in some specific environments, do not cover the whole spectrum of applications. Thus, many other positioning techniques are being developed. This book presents a large overview of the strengths and weaknesses of various systems, with a specific emphasis on satellite based ones. An important part of the book is devoted to Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS): six chapters almost exclusively deal with matters relating to them. The history of navigation, from both the historical and the technical point of view will assist in assessing the main advantages and disadvantages of the various possible solutions for positioning. Also of prime importance, two chapters are devoted to indoor positioning which will provide an overview of the approaches currently under development. The footnotes are designed to provide additional hints or comments to the reader.
Описание: Shell-type structures can be found almost everywhere. They appear in natural forms but also as man-made, load-bearing components in diverse engineering systems. Mankind has struggled to replicate natureвЂ™s optimization of such structures but using modern computational tools it is now possible to analyse, design and optimise them systematically. Analysis and Optimization of Prismatic and Axisymmetric Shell Structures features: comprehensive coverage of the background theory of shell structures; development and implementation of reliable, creative and efficient computational tools for static and free-vibration analysis and structural optimization of variable-thickness shells and folded-plate structures; integrated computer-aided curve and surface modelling tools and automatic mesh generation, structural analysis sensitivity analysis and mathematical programming methods; CD-ROM containing well-documented Fortran software for these techniques using finite element and finite strip simulations which can be readily adapted by the reader for the solution of practical problems or for use within a teaching or research environment. Written by leading experts in finite element and finite strip methods, Analysis and Optimization of Prismatic and Axisymmetric Shell Structures will be of great interest to researchers in structural mechanics and in automotive, aerospace and civil engineering as well as to designers from all fields using shell structures for their strength-per-unit-mass advantages.
Описание: This work brings together practical examples to show how geomorphological evidence can help in effective land utilization and hazard risk assessment. The study also looks at problems caused by misuse of the environment and potential solutions based on geomorphological evidence.
Описание: This volume is designed as an introductory text and reference book for graduate students, researchers and practitioners in the fields of astronomy, astrodynamics, satellite systems, space sciences and astrophysics. The purpose of the book is to emphasize the similarities between celestial mechanics and astrodynamics, and to present recent advances in these two fields so that the reader can understand the inter-relations and mutual influences. The juxtaposition of celestial mechanics and astrodynamics is a unique approach that is expected to be a refreshing attempt to discuss both the mechanics of space flight and the dynamics of celestial objects. “Celestial Mechanics and Astrodynamics: Theory and Practice” also presents the main challenges and future prospects for the two fields in an elaborate, comprehensive and rigorous manner. The book presents homogenous and fluent discussions of the key problems, rendering a portrayal of recent advances in the field together with some basic concepts and essential infrastructure in orbital mechanics. The text contains introductory material followed by a gradual development of ideas interweaved to yield a coherent presentation of advanced topics.
Описание: Developments in the Theory and Practice of Cybercartography—awarded an Honorable Mention in Earth Science at the Association of American Publishers' 2015 PROSE Awards—examines some of the recent developments in the theory and practice of cybercartography and the substantial changes which have taken place since the first edition published in 2005. It continues to examine the major elements of cybercartography and emphasizes the importance of interaction between theory and practice in developing a paradigm which moves beyond the concept of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Geographical Information Science. . Cybercartography is a new paradigm for maps and mapping in the information era. Defined as "the organization, presentation, analysis and communication of spatially referenced information on a wide variety of topics of interest to society," cybercartography is presented in an interactive, dynamic, multisensory format with the use of multimedia and multimodal interfaces. . The seven major elements of cybercartography outlined in the first edition have been supplemented by six key ideas and the definition of cybercartography has been extended and expanded. The new practice of mapping traditional knowledge in partnership with indigenous people has led to new theoretical understanding as well as innovative cybercartographic atlases. Featuring more than 90% new and revised content, this volume is a result of a multidisciplinary team effort and has benefited from the input of partners from government, industry and aboriginal non-governmental organizations.
Описание: After the 1998 flood of the Yangtze River, one of the world’s most important rivers, environmental experts realized that, to control flooding, much more attention must be paid to vegetation cover on bare lands, thin forest land, and shrub-covered land in mountain areas. In 1999, an environmental monitoring project of the forests in 11 provinces of the Yangtze River basin was undertaken. This book reports on soil loss prediction and the successful practices of soil loss control in eastern China in recent years.
Описание: This book analyzes hydrocarbon generation and accumulation within space-limited source rocks. The authors draw conclusions based on the principles of basin formation, hydrocarbon generation and accumulation, coupled with the practice of terrigenous basins in eastern China. Hydrocarbon generation and expulsion have been quantitatively assessed in space-limited source rock systems. This book explores new hydrocarbon generation and expulsion models to reflect real geological situations more accurately. The theory and practice proposed in this book challenge the traditional theory of kerogen thermal degradation and hydrocarbon generation.
