"Load and thermal stress analyses for both asphalt and concrete pavement structures are dealt in this book. Basic formulations for pavement analyses have been compiled and presented in a step-by-step manner - from a simple formulation to a more complex one, maintaining uniformity in symbol and sign conventions throughout the book. This book serves as a handy, quick reference on analysis of pavement structures for researchers, academicians, and practicing engineers"-- Provided by publisher.
"Preface This book is about pavement analysis. A pavement is a multilayered structure, made of a number of layers placed one over the other. These layers can be made of asphaltic material, cement concrete, bound or unbound stone aggregates, etc. These materials show a complex mechanical response with the variation of stress, time, or temperature. Thus, understanding the performance of an in-service pavement structure subjected to vehicular loading and environmental variations is a difficult task. However, this is a simple book. This book presents a step-by-step formulation for analyses of load and thermal stresses of idealized pavement structures. Some of these idealizations involve assumptions of the material being linear, elastic, homogeneous and isotropic; the load being static; the thermal profile being linear and so on. Significant research has been done on analysis and design of pavements during the last half-a-century (some of the fundamental developments are however, more than hundred years old) and a large number of research publications are already available. However, there is a need for the basic formulations to be systematically compiled and put together in one place. Hence this book. It is believed that such a compilation will provide an exposure to the basic approaches used in pavement analyses and subsequently help the readers' formulate their own research or field problems more difficult than those dealt with in this book"-- Provided by publisher.

  • 1. Introduction
  • 2. Describing and summarizing sports data
  • 3. Probability
  • 4. Statistical methods
  • 5. Using correlation to detect statistical relationships
  • 6. Modeling relationships using linear regression
  • 7. Regression models with several predictor variables.
"One of the greatest changes in the sports world during the past 20 years has been the use of mathematical methods to analyze performances, recognize trends and patterns, and predict results. This book presents a concise but thorough introduction to the analytic and statistical methods that are useful in studying sports. It focuses on the application of the methods to sports data and the interpretation of the results. Suitable for undergraduate students studying sports analytics or taking an introductory statistics course, the book requires no prior background in statistics"-- Provided by publisher.

  • section 1. The transformative power of data analytics
  • section 2. The benefits of smart grid data analytics
  • section 3. Implementing data analytics programs for sustained change.
"A successful data analytics program is the only way utilities will be able to meet the challenges of a modernized grid that is responsive from an operational perspective and meets the demands of greenhouse gas legislation. This book addresses the needs of applying big data technologies and approaches, including Big Data cybersecurity, to the critical infrastructure that makes up the electrical utility grid. It explores the unique needs of electrical utility grids, including operational technology, IT, storage, processing, and transformation to a usable state that benefits the utility business and electricity consumers"-- Provided by publisher.
"This is a practical book, to be sure, but it is also a book about hope and positive change. I am quite sincere. The delivery of electricity is deeply rooted in the principle of universal access; when clean, reliable energy is available it contributes to poverty alleviation, improved social conditions, and enhanced economic development. In the developed world, we know this to be true. The digital fabric of our lives is a testimony to the importance of energy security. Across the globe, we have seen the vital contributions that electrification has brought to the development of economies and an enhanced quality of life. Nonetheless, this supreme engineering achievement has languished, and we are deeply challenged. Modern electrification systems are degrading and inefficient in myriad ways, yet the complex and difficult operating conditions of the energy business have been slow to adapt and advance to improve these circumstances. However, with the advent of the information-enabled, two-way grid, we have an opportunity to meet these challenges directly. It is the thesis of this book that through the application of big data analytics and subsequent improvements in situational awareness of the millions of miles of grid across the world, we will be able to integrate renewable energy systems, introduce economic and operating efficiencies, and bring energy services to the over 1 billion people across the world who have no electricity. It is also the view of this work that utilities are confronted with a very difficult charge indeed--to evolve rapidly towards a business standpoint that capitalizes on these key technologies"-- Provided by publisher.
