3 Title : Vibration-based condition monitoring : industrial, aerospace and automotive applications Author : Robert Bond Randall - Explaining complex ideas in an easy to understand way, Vibration-based Condition Monitoring provides a comprehensive survey of the application of vibration analysis to the condition monitoring of machines. Reflecting the natural progression of these systems by presenting the fundamental material and then moving onto detection, diagnosis and prognosis, Randall presents classic and state-of-the-art research results that cover vibration signals from rotating and reciprocating machines; basic signal processing techniques; fault detection; diagnostic techniques, and prognostics. Game-theoretic tools can be applied in each setting. In order to emphasize the broad potential scope of the theory, conventional applications from industrial organization have been largely replaced by applications from labor, macro, and other applied fields in economics.

Henderson - Decision Making in Systems Engineering and Management is a comprehensive textbook that provides a logical process and analytical techniques for fact-based decision making for the most challenging systems problems. Grounded in systems thinking and based on sound systems engineering principles, the systems decisions process (SDP) leverages multiple objective decision analysis, multiple attribute value theory, and value-focused thinking to define the problem, measure stakeholder value, design creative solutions, explore the decision trade off space in the presence of uncertainty, and structure successful solution implementation. In addition to classical systems engineering problems, this approach has been successfully applied to a wide range of challenges including personnel recruiting, retention, and management; strategic policy analysis; facilities design and management; resource allocation; information assurance; security systems design; and other settings whose structure can be conceptualized as a system.

5 Title : Equilibrium theory in infinite dimensional spaces Editor : M. Ali Khan, Nicholas C. Yannelis (eds.). - The purpose of this monograph is to study several solution concepts such as the Walrasian Equilibrium, the Pareto opti- mality, the Core, the Nash Equilibrium and the Correlated equilibrium in the context of an infinite dimensional commodity or strategy space. Of course, the study of the above equilibrium notions in an infinite dimensional commodity or strategy space not only requires novel technical arguments and a modification and correction of much of our finite-dimensional intuition about these concepts, but this point also goes the other way; a successful formulation of the outstanding questions has also necessitated the creation of new mathematics. Some of the contributions in this volume also present a flavor of these technical advances that have been made in the last twenty years. Year : 2010 2010 No. Call No. : HB145 E677 20106 Title : Thermal design :heat sinks, thermoelectric generators and coolers, heat pipes, and heat exchangers Author : HoSung Lee. - The proposed is written as a senior undergraduate or the first-year graduate textbook,covering modern thermal devices such as heat sinks, thermoelectric generators and coolers, heat pipes, and heat exchangers as design components in larger systems. These devices are becoming increasingly important and fundamental in thermal design across such diverse areas as microelectronic cooling, green or thermal energy conversion, and thermal control and management in space, etc. However, there is no textbook available covering this range of topics Year : 2010 No. Call No. : TJ255.5 L4787 Title : Intelligent instrumentation: principles and applications Author : Manabendra Bhuyan. • Emphasizes basic design principles and applications of intelligent sensors using case studies and numerical examples • Discusses signal processing operations such as linearization, calibration, and compensation on which intelligent sensors rely • Investigates artificial intelligence as a critical component of intelligent sensors in real world applications • Uses MATLAB programs to validate design approaches With the advent of microprocessors and digital-processing technologies as catalyst, classical sensors capable of simple signal conditioning
operations have evolved rapidly to take on higher and more specialized functions including validation, compensation, and classification. This new category of sensor expands the scope of incorporating intelligence into instrumentation systems, yet with such rapid changes, there has developed no universal standard for design, definition, or requirement with which to unify intelligent instrumentation.

Year : 2011 Call No. : TA345 D858 20119 Title : Energy storage: a new approach Author : Ralph Zito. - Energy Storage: A New Approach presents practical solutions to the problem of energy storage on a massive scale. This revolutionary book describes technologies that include basic chemical concepts that engineers have been practicing for years, but presents new material that could transform the energy industry. Regardless where power is generated from—oil, natural gas, coal, solar, wind, or any of the other emerging sources— energy storage is something that the industry MUST learn and practice. With the world energy demand increasing, mostly due to industrial growth in China and India, and with the West becoming increasingly more interested in fuel efficiency and “green” endeavors, energy storage is potentially a key technology in our energy future.
