Editorial Review
The second edition of this book fully
preserves the character of the first edition to combine the detailed
physical modeling of mechatronic systems and their precise numerical
simulation using the Finite Element (FE) method. Most of the text and
general appearance of the previous edition were retained, while the
coverage was extended and the presentation improved.
In this second edition, the author enhances
and improves many discussions on principles and methods. For example, he
included a discussion of a priori estimates as well as a new section
discussing locking effects as occurring in the numerical computation of
thin mechanical structures. He also deepens the discussion of the
physics of sound generation and propagation as well as includes the case
of flow induced sound.
A large part of the book describes the
application of the developed numerical calculation schemes to industrial
problems, e.g.: analysis and optimization of electrodynamic
loudspeakers. In these parts, new computational methods are included,
and last but not least, this new edition contains a new chapter on
computational aeroacoustics to study the complex phenomenon of flow
induced noise.
