Quaternary Capped In(Ga)As/ GaAs Quantum Dot Infrared Photodetectors From Materials to Devices This book introduces some alternative methods for enhancing the performance of In(Ga)As/GaAsbased quantum dot infrared photodetectors (QDIPs). In(Ga)As/GaAs-based QDIPs and focal plane array (FPA) cameras have wide application in fields such as military and space science. The core of the study uses a combination of quaternary In0.21Al0.21Ga0.58As and GaAs spacer as a capping layer on In(Ga)As/ GaAs quantum dots in the active region of the detector structure. For the purposes of optimization, three types of samples growths are considered with different capping thicknesses. The results presented include TEM, XRD and photoluminescence studies that compare combination barrier thickness[...] More on www.springer.com/978-981-10-5289-7 Hardcover 2018.

Fundamentals and Applications

Resource Management for Heterogeneous Wireless Networks

The text describes the main features of currently available heat pumps, focusing on system operation and interactions with external heat sources. In fact, before choosing a heat pump, several aspects must be assessed in detail: the actual climate of the installation site, the building’s energy requirements, the heating system, the type of operation etc. After discussing the general working principles, the book describes the main components of compression machines – for EHPs, GHPs and CO2 heat pumps. It then addresses absorption heat pumps and provides additional details on the behavior of two-fluid mixtures. The book presents a performance comparison for the different types, helping[...]

This book provides an in-depth discussion on how to efficiently manage resources of heterogeneous wireless networks and how to design resource allocation algorithms to suit real world conditions. Efficiently managing resources of the networks is more crucial now, than ever before, to meet users’ rapidly increasing demand for higher data rates, better quality-ofservice (QoS) and seamless coverage. Some of the techniques that can be incorporated within heterogeneous wireless networks to achieve this objective are interworking of the networks, user multi-homing and device-to-device (D2D) communication.  Designing resource allocation algorithms to suit real world conditions is also[...] More on www.springer.com/978-3-319-64267-3 Softcover 2018.

Strain Gradient Plasticity-Based Modeling of Damage and Fracture This book provides a comprehensive introduction to numerical modeling of size effects in metal plasticity. The main classes of strain gradient plasticity formulations are described and efficiently implemented in the context of the finite element method. A robust numerical framework is presented and employed to investigate the role of strain gradients on structural integrity assessment. The results obtained reveal the need of incorporating the influence on geometrically necessary dislocations in the modeling of various damage mechanisms. Large gradients of plastic strain increase dislocation density, promoting strain hardening and elevating crack tip stresses. This stress elevation is[...]

Complexity and Synergetics All of us are confronted with complex phenomena occurring in daily life and in the living and inanimate nature surrounding us. Our scientific curiosity strives to unravel the mechanisms at work to create such complexity. Among various approaches to solve this problem, the field of synergetics, developed by Hermann Haken, has proven very successful as a general and interdisciplinary concept for describing and explaining complex phenomena that appear in systems under non-equilibrium conditions. These comprise dynamical states in evolving systems, spatial structure-forming processes, synchronization of states and regulatory mechanisms, and many other examples.

Synergies Between Knowledge Engineering and Software Engineering This book compiles a number of contributions originating from the KESE (Knowledge Engineering and Software Engineering) workshop series from 2005 to 2015. The idea behind the series was the realignment of the knowledge engineering discipline and its strong relation to software engineering, as well as to the classical aspects of artificial intelligence research. The book introduces symbiotic work combining these disciplines, such as aspect-oriented and agile engineering, using anti-patterns, and system refinement. Furthermore, it presents successful applications from different areas that were created by combining techniques from both areas. More on www.springer.com/978-3-319-64160-7 Softcover 2018.

This book proposes the concept of a multi-layer pavement system to fulfill the blast resistance requirement for pavement design. It also presents a damage pattern chart for multi-layer pavement design and rapid repair after blast load. Such a multi-layer system consists of three layers including asphalt concrete (AC) reinforced with Geogrid (GST) at the top, a high-strength concrete (HSC) layer in the middle, and engineered cementitious composites (ECC) at the bottom. A series of large-scale laboratory impact tests were carried out to prove the usefulness of this concept and show its advantages over other conventional pavement system. Furthermore, field blast tests were conducted to[...]
