Bahnbau und Bahninfrastruktur: Ein Leitfaden zu by Reinhard Menius,Volker Matthews

By Reinhard Menius,Volker Matthews

Das Lehrbuch vermittelt anschaulich und praxisnah die bauspezifischen Grundlagen der Schienenbahnen und wendet sich primär an Studierende im bautechnischen Hochschulbereich. Es ist eine wertvolle Ergänzung zu Vorlesungen und Übungen. Dem Praktiker zeigt es, auf welchen Grundlagen z.B. bestimmte Trassierungsregeln beruhen. Neben technischem knowledge findet der Leser Themen wie Lichtraumprofile, Linienführung in Grund- und Aufriss, Querschnittsgestaltung, Unter- und Oberbau, Weichen und Kreuzungen, ausgewählte Signale, Hinweise zu Bahnanlagen und Bahnübergängen sowie zum Bauen unter Eisenbahnbetrieb und auch Grundlagen des Schienenverkehrslärms. Der Autor bezieht sich schwerpunktmäßig auf normalspurige Bahnen, additionally die klassischen Schienenbahnen.
In der nine. Auflage wurde das von Prof. Dr.-Ing. Volker Matthews begründete Werk von Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Reinhard Menius weitergeführt und komplett überarbeitet und aktualisiert.

Structural Health Monitoring with Piezoelectric Wafer Active by Victor Giurgiutiu

By Victor Giurgiutiu

Structural future health tracking with Piezoelectric Wafer lively Sensors, moment Edition presents an authoritative theoretical and experimental consultant to this fast paced, interdisciplinary quarter with interesting purposes throughout a number industries.

The ebook starts off with a close but digestible consolidation of the elemental conception on the subject of structural health and wellbeing tracking (SHM). assurance of fracture and failure fundamentals, suitable piezoelectric fabric homes, vibration modes in several constructions, and diverse wave kinds supply all of the history had to comprehend SHM and use it on real-world structural demanding situations. relocating from conception to experimental perform, the booklet then offers the main accomplished assurance on hand on utilizing piezoelectric wafer energetic sensors (PWAS) to realize and quantify harm in structures.

Updates to this variation comprise round and straight-crested Lamb waves from first precept, and the interplay among PWAS and Lamb waves in 1-D and 2-D geometries. powerful shear rigidity is defined, and tuning expressions among PWAS and Lamb waves has been prolonged to hide axisymmetric geometries with a whole Hankel-transform-based derivation.

New chapters were further together with hands-on SHM case reports of PWAS pressure, pressure, vibration, and wave sensing functions, in addition to new sections overlaying crucial points of vibration and wave propagation in axisymmetric geometries.

  • Comprehensive insurance of underlying concept equivalent to piezoelectricity, vibration, and wave propagation along experimental suggestions
  • Includes step by step information at the use of piezoelectric wafer lively sensors (PWAS) to notice and quantify harm in buildings, together with transparent details on the best way to interpret sensor sign styles
  • Updates to this variation contain a brand new bankruptcy on composites and new sections on advances in vibration and wave idea, bringing this validated reference in keeping with the leading edge during this rising area
