Sensors are the eyes, ears, and more, of the modern engineered product or system--including the living human organism. This authoritative reference work, part of Momentum Press’s new Sensor Technology series, edited by Joe Watson, will offer a complete review of all sensors and their associated instrumentation systems now commonly used in modern medicine.

Nanomaterials and nanotechnology are new fields of science and technology. Nanotechnology is still in its infancy, because nanotechnology has become a hot area globally since a few years ago. However, it is expected that nanotechnology will dramatically change operating characteristics of chemical sensors and will probably gain in importance in all fields of sensor application over the next ten to twenty years. It was found that with reduction in size, novel electrical, mechanical, chemical, catalytic and optical properties can be introduced.

Sensing materials play a key role in the successful implementation of chemical sensors, which can be applied for the automation of myriad industrial processes, as well as for everyday monitoring of such activities as public safety, engine performance, medical therapeutics, and many more. The world of sensing materials is very broad. Our main idea was to create really useful encyclopedia-handbook of chemical sensing materials.

Frederic Molinet

Covering analytical research in aerial and underwater acoustics, this new scholarly work treats the interaction of acoustic waves with obstacles which may be rigid, soft, elastic, or characterized by an impedance boundary condition. The approach is founded on asymptotic high frequency methods which are based on the concept of rays.

Gregory K. McMillan

Control engineers, mechanical engineers and mechanical technicians will learn how to select the proper control systems for axial and centrifugal compressors for proper throughput and surge control, with a particular emphasis on surge control. Readers will learn to understand the importance of transmitter speed, digital controller sample time, and control valve stroking time in helping to prevent surge. Engineers and technicians will find this book to be a highly valuable guide on compressor control schemes and the importance of mitigating costly and sometimes catastrophic surge problems.

P.E. Morris

Technical topics in science and engineering always present challenges when it comes to conveying or arguing information in a clear and effective manner. This book was written to address that challenge, using time-proven techniques developed by the author for academic courses and onsite training programs he has used for several decades at engineering schools, design and professional conferences.
