Enhancement Cavities for the Generation of Extreme Ultraviolet and Hard X-Ray Radiation

Enhancement Cavities for the Generation of Extreme Ultraviolet and Hard X-Ray Radiation by Henning Carstens
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 103 Pages | ISBN : 3319940082 | 5.73 MB

This thesis discusses the power scaling of ultrashort pulses in enhancement cavities, utilized in particular for frequency conversion processes, such as Thomson scattering and high-harmonic generation. Using custom optics for ultrashort-pulse enhancement cavities, it demonstrates for the first time that at the envisaged power levels, the mitigation of thermal effects becomes indispensable even in cavities comprising solely reflective optics.

Uncertainty Quantification in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Aircraft Engines, Second Edition

Uncertainty Quantification in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Aircraft Engines, Second Edition by Francesco Montomoli
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 204 Pages | ISBN : 3319929429 | 9.50 MB

This book introduces design techniques developed to increase the safety of aircraft engines, and demonstrates how the application of stochastic methods can overcome problems in the accurate prediction of engine lift caused by manufacturing error. This in turn addresses the issue of achieving required safety margins when hampered by limits in current design and manufacturing methods. The authors show that avoiding the potential catastrophe generated by the failure of an aircraft engine relies on the prediction of the correct behaviour of microscopic imperfections. This book shows how to quantify the possibility of such failure, and that it is possible to design components that are inherently less risky and more reliable.

Consumer Behaviour and Sustainable Fashion Consumption

Consumer Behaviour and Sustainable Fashion Consumption by Subramanian Senthilkannan Muthu
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 101 Pages | ISBN : 9811312648 | 2.94 MB

This book analyses the importance of consumer behaviour in sustainable fashion and consumption. Consumer behaviour plays a major role in sustainability, and when it comes to textile products, a number of studies have shown that for certain product categories, consumer behaviour during use and disposal stages influences the entire life cycle impacts of the product more than the raw material and manufacturing stages. However green the production, the overall sustainability of a product depends on the consumers who use and dispose of it.

Mixed Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems

Mixed Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems by Andrzej Napieralski
English | PDF | 1998 | 236 Pages | ISBN : 146137586X | 20.10 MB

Very fast advances in IC technologies have brought new challenges into the physical design of integrated systems. The emphasis on system performance, in lately developed applications, requires timing and power constraints to be considered at each stage of physical design. The size of ICs is decreasing continuously, and the density of power dissipated in the circuits is growing rapidly. The first challenge is the Information Technology where new materials, devices, telecommunication and multimedia facilities are developed.
