  • Stochastic partial differential equations for computer vision with uncertain data / Tobias Preusser, Robert M. Kirby, Torben Pätz
    TA 1637.5 P747 2017eb

    In image processing and computer vision applications such as medical or scientific image data analysis, as well as in industrial scenarios, images are used as input measurement data. It is good scientific practice that proper measurements must be equipped with error and uncertainty estimates. For many applications, not only the measured values but also their errors and uncertainties, should be--and more and more frequently are--taken into account for further processing. This error and uncertainty propagation must be done for every processing step such that the final result comes with a reliable precision estimate.

    The goal of this book is to introduce the reader to the recent advances from the field of uncertainty quantification and error propagation for computer vision, image processing, and image analysis that are based on partial differential equations (PDEs). It presents a concept with which error propagation and sensitivity analysis can be formulated with a set of basic operations. The approach discussed in this book has the potential for application in all areas of quantitative computer vision, image processing, and image analysis. In particular, it might help medical imaging finally become a scientific discipline that is characterized by the classical paradigms of observation, measurement, and error awareness.

    This book is comprised of eight chapters. After an introduction to the goals of the book (Chapter 1), we present a brief review of PDEs and their numerical treatment (Chapter 2), PDE-based image processing (Chapter 3), and the numerics of stochastic PDEs (Chapter 4). We then proceed to define the concept of stochastic images (Chapter 5), describe how to accomplish image processing and computer vision with stochastic images (Chapter 6), and demonstrate the use of these principles for accomplishing sensitivity analysis (Chapter 7). Chapter 8 concludes the book and highlights new research topics for the future.

  • Digital image processing / Rafael C. Gonzalez, University of Tennessee, Richard E. Woods, Interapptics
    TA 1632 G66 2018
    Introduce your students to image processing with the industry's most prized text

    For 40 years, Image Processing has been the foundational text for the study of digital image processing. The book is suited for students at the college senior and first-year graduate level with prior background in mathematical analysis, vectors, matrices, probability, statistics, linear systems, and computer programming. As in all earlier editions, the focus of this edition of the book is on fundamentals.


    The 4th Edition , which celebrates the book's 40th anniversary, is based on an extensive survey of faculty, students, and independent readers in 150 institutions from 30 countries. Their feedback led to expanded or new coverage of topics such as deep learning and deep neural networks, including convolutional neural nets, the scale-invariant feature transform (SIFT), maximally-stable extremal regions (MSERs), graph cuts, k-means clustering and superpixels, active contours (snakes and level sets), and exact histogram matching. Major improvements were made in reorganizing the material on image transforms into a more cohesive presentation, and in the discussion of spatial kernels and spatial filtering. Major revisions and additions were made to examples and homework exercises throughout the book. For the first time, we added MATLAB projects at the end of every chapter, and compiled support packages for you and your teacher containing, solutions, image databases, and sample code.

  • Load assumption for fatigue design of structures and components : counting methods, safety aspects, practical application / Michael Köhler, Sven Jenne, Kurt Pötter, Harald Zenner
    TA658.4

    Fatigue strength under variable stress amplitude is a useful method in lightweight design. It allows for reliable designing and dimensioning of structural components under realistic environmental conditions.  Special emphasis is put on fatigue stress. For designing and dimensioning, the expected stress (load) is compared with the capacity to withstand loads (fatigue strength). In this process, the safety necessary for each particular application must be ensured. A prerequisite for ensuring the required fatigue strength is a reliable load assumption.

    The authors describe the transformation of the stress-time functions which have been measured under operational conditions to spectra or matrices with the application of counting methods. The aspects which must be considered for ensuring a reliable load assumption for designing and dimensioning are discussed in detail. Furthermore, the theoretical background for estimating the fatigue life of structural components is explained, and the procedures are discussed for numerous applications in practice. One of the prime intentions of the authors is to provide recommendations which can be implemented in practical applications.

  • Wind-induced motion of tall buildings : designing for habitability / by Kenny C.S. Kwok, Ph. D., C.P. Eng., Melissa D. Burton, Ph. D., C. Eng., Ahmad K. Abdelrazaq, S.E
    TA 654.5 K96 2015eb

    Sponsored by the Committee on Tall Buildings of the Technical Activities Division of the Structural Engineering Institute of ASCE

    Tall and super-tall buildings are going up all over the world, notably in east and south Asia, the Pacific Rim, and the Middle East. Advances in materials, structural design, and wind engineering ensure that these buildings meet strength and safety requirements. But wind-induced building motion can cause structures to creak and groan, elevator cables to clash, horizons to "swing," and human occupants to feel dizzy, nausea, or highly anxious.

    Wind-Induced Motion of Tall Buildings presents an overview of current research on occupant response to motion in tall buildings. This state-of-the-art report describes the physiology and psychology of the human perception of motion and explains the factors that can be used to characterize a building's movement. The authors summarize the results of field studies and motion simulator experiments that examine human perception of and tolerance for building motion. They survey the serviceability criteria adopted by international standards organizations and offer general acceptance guidelines based on peak acceleration thresholds. Finally, they identify design strategies that can mitigate wind-induced building motion through structural optimization, aerodynamics treatment, and vibration dissipation or absorption.

    The human tolerance for wind-induced building motion can vary greatly and poses a challenge in new buildings of ever-increasing height and complexity of shape. Property developers, building owners, and design professionals working on tall buildings will use this report to ensure that occupants remain comfortable and secure in tall buildings during periods of strong wind.


  • Slope stability analysis by the limit equilibrium method : fundamentals and methods / Yang H. Huang
    TA 710 H785 2014eb

    Slope Stability Analysis by the Limit Equilibrium Method: Fundamentals and Methods presents basic principles for the safe design of constructed or natural earth slopes. The limit equilibrium method is the most common approach for analyzing slope stability in both two and three dimensions. This method identifies potential failure mechanisms and derives factors of safety for a particular geotechnical situation. It is an appropriate choice for assessing the stability of retaining walls, shallow and deep foundations, earth and rock dams, surface mining sites, and potential landslides.

    The fundamentals of slope stability encompass slope movements and methods for stability analysis, mechanics of slope failure and factors of safety, laboratory and field methods to determine the shear strength of soils, estimation of phreatic surfaces, and remedial measures for correcting slides. Methods of stability analysis cover simple formulas for determining the factor of safety for plane failures, stability charts, methods of slices for two-dimensional analysis, three-dimensional analysis techniques, and reliability of slope design.

    An appendix provides a preview of a companion product, LEAME Software and User's Manual: Analyzing Slope Stability by the Limit Equilibrium Method, a computer program for performing the slope stability analysis presented in this work.

    The clear presentation of the principles of slope stability analysis ensures that this work will be a frequently consulted reference for practicing engineers. The wealth of worked examples and problem sets make this a suitable textbook for senior and graduate students in soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering.
