On July 6, 1996, at 1424 central daylight time, a McDonnell Douglas MD-88, N927DA, operated by Delta Air Lines Inc., as flight 1288, experienced an engine failure during the initial part of its... More > takeoff roll on runway 17 at Pensacola Regional Airport in Pensacola, Florida. Uncontained engine debris from the front compressor front hub (fan hub) of the No. 1 (left) engine penetrated the left aft fuselage. Two passengers were killed and two others were seriously injured. The takeoff was rejected, and the airplane was stopped on the runway. The airplane, which was being operated by Delta as a scheduled domestic passenger flight under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 121, with 137 passengers and 5 crew on board, was destined for Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia.< Less

•Design and Evaluation of Network Survivability Schemes for Correlated Multi-Failure Scenarios By Oscar Diaz
Hardcover: $19.38
Ships in 6-8 business days.
Computer network recovery from multiple correlated failures is a major concern given the increased level of infrastructure vulnerability to natural disasters, massive power failures, and malicious... More > attacks. In many cases, existing network recovery schemes cannot handle such scenarios as they are mostly designed for isolated single node and link failures. Hence in order to properly address this concern, improved network recovery schemes are needed based upon probabilistic failure models. This work presents some novel path protection algorithms along these lines to help minimize failure probabilities and also take into account well-known traffic engineering concerns. Network simulation is also used to evaluate the proposed solutions.< Less

Illustrated by Andrew Christensen. Canals and Dams invites children ages 9 and up to explore the innovation and physical science behind the amazing waterways and barriers our world depends on. Trivia... More > and fun facts illustrate engineering ingenuity and achievements from ancient aqueducts to the Suez Canal and the Hoover Dam. Readers will discover that engineers and builders alike put their lives on the line to advance civilization, experiencing triumphs and tragedies in building big. Through dazzling success and heartbreaking failure, they developed increasingly sophisticated tools and building methods. Activities encourage children to explore the engineering process and to try, try again through trial and error. They’ll create a paper-cup zip line, build an arch, and simulate a tsunami, while experimenting with gravity, hydroponics, and velocity. In Canals and Dams children will gain an appreciation for the important field of engineering as they develop their own building skills.< Less

This book is written for non-mechanics readers. It gives very simple basic principle written for ordinary audience. It emphasizes on the basic principle and philosophy of fracture mechanics so that... More > readers who plan to adopt fracture mechanics in their areas can do it the smart way. It also discusses about the limitation so that ordinary engineers do not implement linear elastic fracture mechanics beyond its limitations. It has plenty examples on the simple applications of linear elastic fracture mechanics outside the mechanics world. This book is filling the gap between the fracture mechanics used in the ‘mechanics world’ and the fracture mechanics used ‘outside mechanics world’. It is also perfect for researchers outside mechanics who want to incorporate fracture mechanics in their works. His industrial experience combined with academic professorship enables him to change the once ‘academic knowledge’ into ‘daily useful knowledge’.< Less
