A control system is a collection of components working together under the direction of
some machine intelligence. In most cases, electronic circuits provide the intelligence,
and electromechanical components such as sensors and motors provide the interface to
the physical world. A good example is the modern automobile. Various sensors supply
the on-board computer with information about the engine’s condition. The computer
then calculates the precise amount of fuel to be injected into the engine and adjusts the
ignition timing. T...
Process control is an application area of chemical engineering - an identifiable specialty for the ChE. It combines chemical process knowledge (how physics, chemistry, and biology work in operating equipment) and an understanding of dynamic systems, a topic important to many fields of engineering. Thus study of process control allows chemical engineers to span their own field, as well as form a useful acquaintance with allied fields. Practitioners of process control find their skills useful in design, operation, and troubleshooting - major categories of chemical engineering practice....
Topology Control in Wireless Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks makes the case for topology control and provides an exhaustive coverage of TC techniques in wireless ad hoc and sensor networks, considering both stationary networks, to which most of the existing solutions are tailored, and mobile networks. The author introduces a new taxonomy of topology control and gives a full explication of the applications and challenges of this important topic.
This book presents biologically inspired walking machines interacting with their physical environment. It describes how the designs of the morphology and the behavior control of walking machines can benefit from biological studies.
Volume 41 of the Handbook on the Physics and Chemistry of Rare Earths
adds four chapters to the series: two focus on nanoscale rare-earth mate-
rials, while the other two are concerned with divergent topics—the
arrangement of the rare-earth elements in the periodic table, and the
higher order rare-earth chalogenide compounds with the elements of
the 14th group and also In. The first chapter (248) discusses the various
proposals suggested for the location of the rare-earth elements in the
periodic table from the time of Mendeleev to the present day.
Industrial robots are currently employed in a large number of applications and are available
with a wide range of configurations, drive systems, physical sizes and payloads. However,
the numbers in service throughout the world are much less than predicted over twenty
years ago (Engelberger 1980). This is despite major technological advances in related areas
of computing and electronics, and the availability of fast, reliable and low-cost
microprocessors and memory. This situation is mainly a result of historical and economic
circumstances, rather than technical considerations.
Public health officials have long been concerned about the effect of
the environment on human health. In the nineteenth century, public
health efforts in the United States were focused on controlling
the spread of infectious disease, and advances in sanitation and the
provision of clean water contributed to improvements in the health
of the population.

The demand of transmission of images and video is increasing quickly recently and researchers are trying to invest good solutions to improve the quality of these over wireless networks. There are still challenges due to the different characteristics and quality of images between wired and wireless channels. An important issue is congestion control to ensure network stability and achieve a reasonably fair distribution of the network resources among the users.
“Access control includes authentication, authorization and audit. It also includes measures such as physical devices, including biometric scans and metal locks, hidden paths, digital signatures, encryption, social barriers, and monitoring by humans and automated systems.” -- Wikipedia
This document is historic for two major reasons. First, it represents the
first jointly authorized publication by both American Association of
Medical Physicists (AAPM) and American College of Medical Physics
(ACMP). This document began as a 1991 ACMP report. In 1997 the
General Medical Physics committee of AAPM invited Dr. Brahmavar,
who authored the original report, to chair a task group to rewrite and
update the document as an AAPM task group report. As it neared
completion, there was a suggestion that perhaps ACMP would be
interested in supporting the revised document.
In the article proposed an effective method estimating transfer function model of controlled plant including dead-time delay, based on stochatstic time series of input-output signals. The model structure is modified with parameters optimized until the model error becomes "white-noise" series that with inough smal auto-correlation function.

In 1976, the American Thoracic Society (ATS) published brief guidelines for the investigation, diagnostic evaluation, and
medical treatment of TB contacts. Although investigation of contacts and treatment of infected contacts is an important component
of the U.S. strategy for TB elimination, second in priority to treatment of persons with TB disease, national guidelines have
not been updated since 1976.
Effects of compost, mycorrhiza, manure and fertilizer on some physical properties of a Chromoxerert soil field experiment was conducted to explore the role of mycorrhizal inoculation and organic fertilizers on the alteration of physical properties of a semi-arid Mediterranean soil (Entic Chromoxerert, Arik clay-loam soil). From 1995 to 1999, wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), pepper (Capsicum annuum L.), maize (Zea mays L.
The progression of muscle differentiation is tightly controlled by multiple
groups of transcription factors and transcriptional coregulators. MyoD is a
transcription factor of the myogenic basic helix–loop–helix family required
for the process of muscle cell differentiation.
In a previous paper , the identification algorithm is presented for feedback active controlled systems. However, this method can only be applied to complete measured systems. The aim of this paper is to present a combination of the identification algorithm and the modal superposition method to control the incomplete measured systems. The system response is expanded by modal eigenfunction technique. The external excitation acting on some first modes is identified with a time delay and with a small error depending on the locations of the sensors. ...
Control of ectoparasites on poultry creates additional exposure risks. High pressures sprays or dipping
are often used in large commercial operations to treat birds for obligate ectoparasites such as the
northern fowl mite. Aerosol and splash represent exposure risks for the applicator in both situations.
Routes of entry may be oral, dermal or inhalation. Dipping represents the most significant risk to
personnel since each bird must be handled to effectively treat the outbreak. A significant amount of
splash occurs as birds are immersed and withdrawn from the dipping vat.
