  • Towards Automated Flight-Maneuver-Specific Fatigue Analysis

    Structural health monitoring of aircraft is a necessary topic especially with aging fleets. In general, it means tracking the structural integrity and keeping the risk of missing the detection of hazardous cracks low. Traditionally the fatigue analyses from the collected data have been carried out in a flight-by-flight basis. However, simultaneous ...

  • Structure Determination by X-Ray Crystallography

    There have been many advances in x-ray crystallography since the production of the third edition of this book, and the authors have endeavoured to introduce a number of them into this new edition. The overall plan of the book has been maintained because we believe that it has been well received in the academic community, but substantial revisions ...
