“Ergonomi” er en grundbog til sygepleje, fysioterapi og ergoterapi del af FADL’s Forlags serie af undervisningsbøger til professionsbachelorer. Bogen har fokus på den enkelte patient, samarbejdet med patienten og den sundhedsprofessionelles arbejdsvilkår. De fire forfattere - en sygeplejerske, to ergoterapeuter og en fysioterapeut - gør ergonomi relevant, håndgribelig og nærværende for læseren, og forfatternes forskellige baggrunde gør bogen tværfaglig og teoretisk velbegrundet. Kapitlerne er bygget op på en overskuelig måde og hvert kapitel indeholder et resumé og forslag til øvelser i praksis. Foruden en grundlæggende introduktion af ergonomibegrebet kommer bogen bl.a. ind på kognitiv og organisatorisk ergonomi, de 7 basale bevægelsesmønstre, basal biomekanik, arbejdsstillinger, forflytningsteknik, og hjælpemidler. Bogen er rigt illustreret og fuld af faktabokse og relevante cases, som gør bogen konkret, overskuelig og nem at læse. “Ergonomi” hjælper de studerende til at koble teori og praksis, så ergonomien bliver håndgribelig og anvendelig i de studerendes kliniske ophold. Bogen henvender sig til alle tre faggrupper - sygepleje, fysioterapi og ergonomi. Den kan bruges af den studerende, som er i gang med en sundhedsuddannelse, men også af den nyuddannede eller den mere erfarne sundhedsprofessionelle til at fastholde eller videreudvikle klinisk praksis. Til bogen er der tilknyttet et powerpointshow, som kan bruges af undervisere eller andre interesserede, som ønsker at formidle ergonomi i undervisningen.
Automated gripping and handling tasks offer a great rationalization potential but they are still difficult to realize. This book shows you how to ensure process reliability on the basis of combining the right components with advanced application know-how. By explaining basic preconditions of the gripping process and highlighting the milestones of automation history, we guide you all the way through to the center of the handling process - the workpiece. Its ambient conditions and setup are clearly defined as well as the process of setting grippers in motion. Starting with simple linear movements up to multiaxis kinematics, you are provided with the details for practical solutions. A whole range of current applications illustrates the variety and opportunities of automation in daily business.
Subsurface flow problems are inherently multiscale in space due to the large variability of material properties and in time due to the coupling of many different physical processes, such as advection, diffusion, reaction and phase exchange. Subsurface flow models still need considerable development. For example, nonequilibrium effects, entrapped air, anomalous dispersion and hysteresis effects can still not be adequately described. Moreover, parameters of the models are diffcult to access and often uncertain. Computational issues in subsurface flows include the treatment of strong heterogeneities and anisotropies in the models, the effcient solution of transport-reaction problems with many species, treatment of multiphase-multicomponent flows and the coupling of subsurface flow models to surface flow models given by shallow water or Stokes equations. With respect to energy and the environment, in particular the modelling and simulation of radioactive waste management and sequestration of CO2 underground have gained high interest in the community in recent years. Both applications provide unique challenges ranging from modelling of clay materials to treating very large scale models with high-performance computing. This book brings together key numerical mathematicians whose interest is in the analysis and computation of multiscale subsurface flow and practitioners from engineering and industry whose interest is in the applications of these core problems.

Topics addressed in the current edition include scale modeling to study weather systems, diffusion of pollution in air or water, chemical process in 3-D turbulent flow, multiphase combustion, flame propagation, biological systems, behavior of materials at nano- and micro-scales, and many more. This is an ideal book for students, both graduate and undergraduate, as well as engineers and scientists interested in the latest developments in scale modeling.This book also:Enables readers to evaluate essential and salient aspects of profoundly complex systems, mechanisms, and phenomena at scaleOffers engineers and designers a new point of view, liberating creative and innovative ideas and solutionsServes the widest range of readers across the engineering disciplines and in science and medicine
This book contains the contributions from the RILEM International Symposium on Materials and Joints in Timber Structures that was held in Stuttgart, Germany from October 8 to 10, 2013. It covers recent developments in the materials and the joints used in modern timber structures. Regarding basic wooden materials, the contributions highlight the widened spectrum of products comprising cross-laminated timber, glulam and LVL from hardwoods and block glued elements. Timber concrete compounds, cement bonded wood composites and innovative light-weight constructions represent increasingly employed alternatives for floors, bridges and facades. With regard to jointing technologies, considerable advances in both mechanical connections and glued joints are presented. Self-tapping screws have created unprecedented options for reliable, strong as well as ductile joints and reinforcement technologies. Regarding adhesives, which constitute the basis of the jointing/laminating technology of modern timber products, extended options for tailor-made bonding solutions have to be stated. Apart from melamine-urea and phenolic-resorcinol adhesives, one-component-polyurethanes, emulsion isocyanate polymers and epoxies offer a wide range of possibilities. The contributions dealing with experimental and numerical investigations on static, cyclic and seismic behavior of structures clearly reveal the enhanced potential of modern timber construction for reliable and sustainable buildings and bridges of the new millennium.The book is structured in nine thematic areas, beingI) StructuresII) Mechanical ConnectionsIII) Glued Joints and AdhesivesIV) Timber and Concrete/Cement/Polymer CompositesV) Cyclic, Seismic BehaviorVI) Hardwood, Modified Wood and BambooVII) Cross-Laminated TimberVIII) Properties and Testing of WoodIX) Glulam
This book presents a broad design purview within the framework of "pre-design, design, and post-design" by focusing on the "motive of design," which implies an underlying reason for the design of a product. The chapters are comprised of papers based on discussions at the "Design Research Leading Workshop" held in Nara, Japan, in 2013. This book encourages readers to enhance and expand their thinking within a widened design perspective.
Unifying two decades of research, this book is the first to establish a comprehensive foundation for a systematic analysis and design of linear systems with general state and input constraints. For such systems, which can be used as models for most nonlinear systems, the issues of stability, controller design, additonal constraints, and satisfactory performance are addressed.The book is an excellent reference for practicing engineers, graduate students, and researchers in control systems theory and design. It may also serve as an advanced graduate text for a course or a seminar in nonlinear control systems theory and design in applied mathematics or engineering departments. Minimal prerequisites include a first graduate course in state-space methods as well as a first course in control systems design.
This publication reviews most of the available literature on the fatigue properties of ß annealed Ti-6Al-4V and titanium alloys with similar microstructures. The focus is on ß processed and ß heat-treated alloys because ß annealed Ti-6Al-4V has been selected for highly loaded and fatigue-critical structures, including the main wing-carry-through bulkheads and vertical tail stubs, of advanced high-performance military aircraft. An important aspect of the review is a concise survey of fatigue life assessment methods and the required types of fatigue data. This survey provides the background to recommendations for further research, especially on the fatigue behaviour of ß annealed Ti-6Al-4V under realistic fatigue load histories, including the essential topic of short/small fatigue crack growth. Such research is required for independent fatigue life assessments that conform to the aircraft manufacturer's design requirements, and also for life reassessments that most probably will have to be made during the service life of the aircraft.
This textbook is written for junior/senior undergraduate and first-year graduate students in the electrical and computer engineering departments.Using PSoC mixed-signal array design, the authors define the characteristics of embedd design, embedded mixed-signal architectures, and top-down design. Optimized implementations of these designs are included to illustrate the theory. Exercises are provided at the end of each chapter for practice. Topics covered include the hardware and software used to implement analog and digital interfaces, various filter structures, amplifiers and other signal-conditioning circuits, pulse-width modulators, timers, and data structures for handling multiple similar peripheral devices.The practical exercises contained in the companion laboratory manual, which was co-authored by Cypress Staff Applications Engineer Dave Van Ess, are also based on PSoC. PSoC's integrated microcontroller, highly configurable analog/digital peripherals, and a full set of development tools make it an ideal learning tool for developing mixed-signal embedded design skills.
Real-time Iterative Learning Control demonstrates how the latest advances in iterative learning control (ILC) can be applied to a number of plants widely encountered in practice. The book gives a systematic introduction to real-time ILC design and source of illustrative case studies for ILC problem solving; the fundamental concepts, schematics, configurations and generic guidelines for ILC design and implementation are enhanced by a well-selected group of representative, simple and easy-to-learn example applications. Key issues in ILC design and implementation in linear and nonlinear plants pervading mechatronics and batch processes are addressed, in particular: ILC design in the continuous- and discrete-time domains; design in the frequency and time domains; design with problem-specific performance objectives including robustness and optimality; design in a modular approach by integration with other control techniques; and design by means of classical tools based on Bode plots and state space.
