Construction Scheduling, Cost Optimization and Management (Hardcover): Hojjat Adeli, Asim Karim Construction Scheduling, Cost Optimization and Management (Hardcover)
Hojjat Adeli, Asim Karim
R4,352 Discovery Miles 43 520 Ships in 10 - 15 working days


Construction Scheduling, Cost Optimization and Management presents a general mathematical formula for the scheduling of construction projects. Using this formula, repetitive and non-repetitive tasks, work continuity considerations, multiple-crew strategies, and the effects of varying job conditions on the performance of a crew can be modelled.L This book presents an entirely new approach to the construction scheduling problem. It provides a practical methodology which will be of great benefit to all those involved in construction scheduling and cost optimization, including construction engineers, highway engineers, transportation engineers, contractors and architects. It will also be useful for researchers, and graduates on courses in construction scheduling and planning.

Distributed Computer-Aided Engineering (Hardcover): Hojjat Adeli, Sanjay Kumar Distributed Computer-Aided Engineering (Hardcover)
Hojjat Adeli, Sanjay Kumar
R3,836 Discovery Miles 38 360 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Networking of personal computers and workstations is becoming commonplace in academic and industrial environments. A cluster of workstations provides engineers with a familiar, cost-effective environment for high performance computing. However, workstations often have no dedicated link and communicate slowly on a local area network (LAN), such as the Ethernet. Thus, to effectively harness the parallel processing or distributed computing capabilities of workstations, new algorithms need to be developed with a higher computation-to-communication ratio.
Distributed Computer-Aided Engineering presents distributed algorithms for three fundamental areas: finite element analysis, design optimization, and visualization - providing a new direction in high performance structural engineering computing.

R2,535 R2,275 Discovery Miles 22 750 Save R260 (10%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This book shows how wavelets can be used to enhance computational intelligence for chaotic and complex pattern recognition problems. By integrating wavelets with other soft computing techniques such as neurocomputing and fuzzy logic, complicated and noisy pattern recognition problems can be solved effectively. The book focuses on applications in intelligent transportation systems (ITS) where a number of very complicated pattern recognition problems have eluded researchers over the past few decades.

Advancing the frontiers of computational intelligence, this book: Describes ingenious computational models based on novel problem solving and computing techniques such as Case-Based Reasoning, Neurocomputing, and Wavelets, and presents examples to illustrate their importance and use.Presents a multi-paradigm intelligent systems approach to the freeway traffic incident detection and construction work zone management problems.Advocates application and integration of wavelets, neural networks and fuzzy logic for modeling the complex traffic flow behaviors leading to effective and efficient control and management solutions.Presents efficient, reliable, and robust algorithms for automatic detection of incidents on freeways.

"Wavelets in Intelligent Transportation Systems" is an invaluable resource for computational intelligence researchers and transportation engineers involved in the application of advanced computational techniques for ITS.

Wavelet-Based Vibration Control of Smart Buildings and Bridges (Hardcover, New): Hojjat Adeli, Hongjin Kim Wavelet-Based Vibration Control of Smart Buildings and Bridges (Hardcover, New)
Hojjat Adeli, Hongjin Kim
R3,590 Discovery Miles 35 900 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Earthquakes, bridge collapses, and other natural disasters have dominated news coverage in the last few years. Aging infrastructure needs to be rehabilitated and new infrastructure needs to be designed differently. Presenting a highly innovative, modern approach verging on the futuristic, Wavelet-Based Vibration Control of Smart Buildings and Bridges discusses a new generation of building and bridge structures that not only withstands generation is singular] the destructive effects of nature but is also impact and explosion resistant.

Based on the groundbreaking work of Hojit Adeli, the book introduces the new mathematical concept of wavelets into the field of structural vibration control. It presents a new control algorithm for robust control of smart civil structures subjected to destructive environmental forces, such as earthquakes and wind. It then discusses a new hybrid control system, the hybrid tuned liquid column damper (TLCD) system. The new hybrid control system, which combines passive and semi-active control systems, is intended to achieve increased reliability and maximum operability of the control system during power failure and to eliminate the need for a larger power requirement.

The great majority of papers published in this area of active structural vibration control deal with small or academic problems. The models in this book have been tested and their effectiveness evaluated extensively on small problems for the sake of comparison with other methods and results reported in the literature. The authors go one step further and apply them to realistic and large building and bridge structures to demonstrate the applicability of the new smart technology to large real-world civil structures. Balancing coverage between theory and application, the book demonstrates the benefits of the new smart technology in the design of structures that are safer and more sustainable.

Nature-Inspired Computing: Physics and Chemistry-Based Algorithms provides a comprehensive introduction to the methodologies and algorithms in nature-inspired computing, with an emphasis on applications to real-life engineering problems. The research interest for Nature-inspired Computing has grown considerably exploring different phenomena observed in nature and basic principles of physics, chemistry, and biology. The discipline has reached a mature stage and the field has been well-established. This endeavour is another attempt at investigation into various computational schemes inspired from nature, which are presented in this book with the development of a suitable framework and industrial applications. Designed for senior undergraduates, postgraduates, research students, and professionals, the book is written at a comprehensible level for students who have some basic knowledge of calculus and differential equations, and some exposure to optimization theory. Due to the focus on search and optimization, the book is also appropriate for electrical, control, civil, industrial and manufacturing engineering, business, and economics students, as well as those in computer and information sciences. With the mathematical and programming references and applications in each chapter, the book is self-contained, and can also serve as a reference for researchers and scientists in the fields of system science, natural computing, and optimization.
