  • Aluminum Dreams:The Making of Light Modernity

    Publisher: MIT Press

    by Sheller, M.

    View Abstract

    Aluminum shaped the twentieth century. It enabled high-speed travel and gravity-defying flight. It was the material of a streamlined aesthetic that came to represent modernity. And it became an essential ingredient in industrial and domestic products that ranged from airplanes and cars to designer chairs and artificial Christmas trees. It entered modern homes as packaging, foil, pots and pans and even infiltrated our bodies through food, medicine, and cosmetics. In Aluminum Dreams, Mimi Sheller ... View full Abstract »

  • In a rapidly changing world, we rely upon experts to assess the promise and risks of new technology. But how do these experts make sense of a highly uncertain future? In Arguments that Count, Rebecca Slayton offers an important new perspective. Drawing on new historical documents and interviews as well as perspectives in science and technology studies, she provides an original account of how scientists came to terms with the unprecedented threat of nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missil...

  • Flight Vehicle Aerodynamics

    Publisher: MIT Press

    by Drela, M.

    View Abstract

    This book offers a general overview of the physics, concepts, theories, and models underlying the discipline of aerodynamics. A particular focus is the technique of velocity field representation and modeling via source and vorticity fields and via their sheet, filament, or point-singularity idealizations. These models provide an intuitive feel for aerodynamic flow-field behavior and are the basis of aerodynamic force analysis, drag decomposition, flow interference estimation, and other important...

    Describes the configuration and principles of a reflectarray antenna, its advantages over other antennas, the history of its development, analysis techniques, practical design procedures, bandwidth issues and wideband techniques, as well as applications and recent developments. Both authors are well respected practitioners who have build these antennas and developed them for space flight. View full Abstract »

  • Remote Sensing and Actuation Using Unmanned Vehicles

    Publisher: Wiley-IEEE Press

    by Chao, H.; Chen, Y.

    View Abstract

    How to design and use unmanned vehicles for remote sensing and actuation—a practical guideOwing to their ability to replace human beings in dangerous, tedious, or repetitive jobs, unmanned systems are increasingly used in river/reservoir surveillance and the monitoring and control of chemical/nuclear leaks. This book presents new and innovative techniques for the design and use of unmanned vehicles for remote sensing and distributed control in agricultural and environmental systems.Focusin...

  • Single Event Effects in Aerospace

    Publisher: Wiley-IEEE Press

    by Petersen, E.

    View Abstract

    Enables readers to better understand, calculate, and manage single event effectsSingle event effects, caused by single ionizing particles that penetrate sensitive nodes within an electronic device, can lead to anything from annoying system responses to catastrophic system failures. As electronic components continue to become smaller and smaller due to advances in miniaturization, electronic components designed for avionics are increasingly susceptible to these single event phenomena. With this b... View full Abstract »

  • A thorough review of scintillation theory and real-world applicationsResearchers and engineers apply the name scintillation to any observable irregular variation of a wave field e.g., intensity, phase, angle of arrival, Doppler shift, and delay. Scintillation is a nuisance in satellite electromagnetic communications, but this phenomenon has stimulated numerous theoretical developments with science applications. In order to truly understand data signals transmitted by satellites, one must underst... View full Abstract »

  • Geologists in the field climb hills and hang onto craggy outcrops; they put their fingers in sand and scratch, smell, and even taste rocks. Beginning in 2004, however, a team of geologists and other planetary scientists did field science in a dark room in Pasadena, exploring Mars from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) by means of the remotely operated Mars Exploration Rovers (MER). Clustered around monitors, living on Mars time, painstakingly plotting each movement of the rovers and the... View full Abstract »
