This book provides a novel approach to building pathology in current buildings. Drawing on the available literature, hands-on experience and fieldwork inspections, it presents a systematic perspective on the pathology of the building envelope. The book addresses natural stone claddings, adhesive ceramic tiling, renders, painted surfaces, External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (ETICS), architectural concrete surfaces, windows and doors framing, and claddings for pitched and flat roofs. In addition to highlighting selected materials and construction elements, the book proposes a global classification system for defects and their probable causes, together with in situ diagnosis methods and repair techniques. It also identifies the relationships between defects and causes, diagnosis methods and repair techniques, and the interdependence between different defects, presenting these relations in the form of correlation matrices. Support files with detailed information and an inspection form are also provided. Selected case studies are presented to illustrate the value of a guidance system in fieldwork. Given its scope, the book offers a valuable guide, particularly for researchers, building inspectors, civil engineers, architects and maintenance planners.

Intelligent Knowledge Based Systems in Electrical Power Engineering details how intelligent applications can be used in the power industry. The book gives a general and historical overview of intelligent knowledge based systems (IKBS) and artificial intelligence (AI) and a broad analysis of the application of these techniques in the electrical power industry. It includes chapters on forecasting and planning in power systems, design of electrical plant and systems, IKBS in condition monitoring, alarm processing, event and fault diagnosis and an analysis of future trends in IKBS for power engineering. No previous knowledge of IKBS is assumed, but an appreciation of electrical transmission and distribution systems would be useful.

Over the years, the promise of artificial intelligence has inspired many researchers and many schemes, only to have incipient hopes thwarted by its complexity. With each generation of computational engines, a new wave of enthusiasm sweeps the community as solutions to a few problems come within reach. However, intractability and undecidability continue to frustrate the unwary practitioner, while unsubstantiated methodologies offer ingenious solutions that hold more promise than potential. Despite its undulate past and variegated present, AI has made solid contributions to a growing information technology. Expert systems and allied tools have become a mainstay of industrial and business organizations; intelligent interfaces have increased accessibility of computational resources; and robotic innovations have redefined the manufacturing industries. Meanwhile, research in evolutionary algorithms, neural networks, fuzzy reasoning, and other exciting approaches promise continued progress in surprising new directions. These proceedings record the latest results of industrial, commercial, military, and academic artificial intelligence exploration. Seventy-seven papers divided into twenty different areas document a significant slice of this broad and exciting field. Although dozens of themes are treated in the papers, the topical divisions of this volume comprise: The Software Engineering/AI Interface, Knowledge-Based Systems. Temporal Reasoning, Machine Learning, Robotics, Intelligent Databases, Planning, Expert Systems Applications, Search Techniques, Genetic and Evolutionary Methods, Design, Qualitative Reasoning, Neural Networks, Knowledge Representation, Application Paradigms, Fuzzy and Pattern Recognition, Reasoning about Physical Systems, Parallel and Distributed AI, and Diagnostic Systems.

Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) is now playing an increasing role in the modern global economy, in security-sensitive industries, for instance. The complexity of the inspection task and either large or limited lot runs now require more operator-assisted or fully automated signal processing. This book deals with both fields of expertise: NDE and signal processing.

This volume (Parts A and B) contains the edited papers presented at the annual Review of Progress in Quan?itative Nondestructive Evalua tion held at the University of California (San Diego) in LaJo11a, August 3-8, 1986. The Review was organized and sponsored by the Center for NDE at Iowa State University and the Ames Laboratory, in cooperation with the Office of Basic Energy Sciences, USDOE, and the Materia1s Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Approximately 400 attendees, a new record, representing various government agencies, industry, and universities participated in the technical presentations, poster sessions, and discussions. This Review, with its wide-ranging interchange of technical information, stands as one of the most compre hensive in the field of NDE research and engineering. In order to present the reader with a more usefu1 document, we have organized the symposium papers in these Proceedings by subject rather than by the order of presentation at the Review. Topical subject headings have been selected under which the 1arge majority of papers wou1d reasonably falI. Here, again, we have revised the format used in former years to accommodate an evolving focus of interest in the field. These categories cover a broad spectrum of research in NDE and encompass activities from fundamental work to early engineering applications. In the following paragraphs we offer a brief summary of the research presented in these Proceedings.

This book presents contributions on new technologies in building and construction. Buildings are complex elements that impact environment significantly. The sustainability of this sector requires a holistic and multidisciplinary approach that allows adequate strategies to be established to reduce its environmental impact. This heterogeneity is represented in these chapters, which have been developed by researchers from different countries. The book is divided into three sections: (i) analysis, (ii) design and modeling, and (iii) solutions. The book chapters together represent an advance in current knowledge about new technologies in building and construction, crucial for researchers, engineers, architects, policy makers, and stakeholders.
