Surrogate models expedite the search for promising designs by standing in for expensive design evaluations or simulations. They provide a global model of some metric of a design (such as weight, aerodynamic drag, cost, etc.), which can then be optimized efficiently. "Engineering Design via Surrogate Modelling" is a self-contained guide to surrogate models and their use in engineering design. The fundamentals of building, selecting, validating, searching and refining a surrogate are presented in a manner accessible to novices in the field. Figures are used liberally to explain the key concepts and clearly show the differences between the various techniques, as well as to emphasize the intuitive nature of the conceptual and mathematical reasoning behind them. More advanced and recent concepts are each presented in stand-alone chapters, allowing readers to concentrate on material pertinent to their current design problems, and concepts are clearly demonstrated using simple design problems. This collection of advanced concepts (visualization, constraint handling, coping with noisy data, gradient-enhanced modelling, multi-fidelity analysis and multiple objectives) represents an invaluable reference manual for engineers and researchers active in the area. "Engineering Design via Surrogate Modelling" is complemented by a suite of MATLAB[registered] codes, allowing readers to apply all the techniques presented to their own design problems. By applying statistical modelling to engineering design, this book bridges the gap between the engineering and statistics communities. It will appeal to postgraduates and researchers across the academic engineering design community as well as to practicing design engineers. This title provides an inclusive and practical guide to using surrogates in engineering design. It presents the fundamentals of building, selecting, validating, searching and refining a surrogate model. It guides the reader through the practical implementation of a surrogate-based design process using a set of case studies from real engineering design challenges.
This is a simple guide to search engine optimization, written in layman's simplicity, geared specifically toward authors and using the best genre keywords for writers to use on blogs and book distributors such as Amazon. It is basic, basic, basic. No mention of HTML or any kind of coding. In fact, if you dabble in website coding or have any previous knowledge of how basic SEO works, keep on scrolling to other optimization guides. I know, I know. Book descriptions are supposed to encourage buying of this particular book. And you should if you are brand spanking new to how search engines and web crawlers work. But if you're looking for more advanced coding, this isn't the guide for that. Not by a long shot. So writers and bloggers new to search engine optimization, this short (25 pages) guide with screen shot examples is ideal. More advanced SEO specialists...move along. From Author Lavender Daye: "Most of the writers who buy this will be like me: desperately in need of the information and how to incorporate it, but with little (or slowly developing) techno savvy."
The Hyatt Regency Hotel, Columbus, Ohio was the venue for the 1995 Cryogenic Engineering Conference. The meeting was held jointly with the International Cryogenic Materials Conference. Jim Peeples, of CVI, Inc., was conference chairman. Columbus is the home of the Battelle Memorial Institute, a pioneer in cryogenic materials development; the home of CVI, Inc., and Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc., two leading manufacturers of cryogenic equipment; and it is the home of Ohio State University, where research on liquid helium has long been conducted. The program consisted of 315 CEC papers, nearly the same number as for CEC-91. This was the second largest number of papers ever submitted to the CEC. Of these, 252 papers are published here, in Volume 41 of Advances in Cryogenic Engineering. Once again the volume is published in two books. This volume includes a number of photographs taken during the awards lunch on July 20, 1995. Photographs have often been taken during the conferences, but they have never been used. The pictures are of the awardees, the conference chairs, and the organizers. They are distributed through out the books on pages that would otherwise have been blank. The pictures can be found on the following pages: 28, 232, 334, 536, 640, 826, 990, 1032, 1202, 1462,1682,1888, and 1994.
'Practitioner Research in Education should become a millennium "must" for principals and school leaders whose schools are under OfSTED spotlight and for all those practitioners who earnestly aim to undertake higher managment studies whilst "in situ" in their teaching posts...It is a publication well worth reading by all those who continue to be, justifiably, enthused by school development issues' - Angela Monkman Brushett, OfSTED Inspector 'This is a very simple but notable piece of work...They have done a service to education in providing evidence (and there is remarkably little elsewhere) that continuous professional development does pay off in terms of a better education for pupils in schools' - School Leadership and Management Much debate currently concerns the value of education research : how is it perceived by practitioners and students ? How useful and relevant is it ? Who best carries it out ? Can it be free from political influence ? While practitioner research is widely advocated, little is known about its effect on individuals, teams and the institution.In Practitioner Research in Education, the authors explore the effects of teachers' and lecturers' research and its impact on organizational improvement. Whether affecting whole school cultures through teachers' group work, or influencing practice through an individual's research, the accounts in this book show how research can make a difference. They show how improvements in management and leadership arising from practitioner research can contribute to advances in teaching and learning. The book includes material on how to conduct research, the types of research which practitioners can carry out in a school or college, and the implications of research for organizational development. Readers will be able to draw valuable lessons for personal, professional, team or school improvement. Practitioner Research In Education will be useful to students and practitioners of educational management, to those doing research in educational settings, and to school managers who are committed to school improvement.
