Written by global leaders and pioneers in the field, this book is a must-have read for researchers,  practicing engineers and university faculty working in SHM.

Structural Health Monitoring: A Machine Learning Perspective is the first comprehensive book on the general problem of structural health monitoring. The authors, renowned experts in the field, consider structural health monitoring in a new manner by casting the problem in the context of a machine learning/statistical pattern recognition paradigm, first explaining the paradigm in general terms then explaining the process in detail with further insight provided via numerical and experimental studies of laboratory test specimens and in-situ structures. This paradigm provides a comprehensive framework for developing SHM solutions.

Structural Health Monitoring: A Machine Learning Perspective makes extensive use of the authors? detailed surveys of the technical literature, the experience they have gained from teaching numerous courses on this subject, and the results of performing numerous analytical and experimental structural health monitoring studies.

  • Considers structural health monitoring in a new manner by casting the problem in the context of a machine learning/statistical pattern recognition paradigm
  • Emphasises an integrated approach to the development of structural health monitoring solutions by coupling the measurement hardware portion of the problem directly with the data interrogation algorithms
  • Benefits from extensive use of the authors? detailed surveys of 800 papers in the technical literature and the experience they have gained from teaching numerous short courses on this subject.

A source of up-to-date information on current water resources, their quality and quantity, in every country in the Balkans. Institutional structures, water management issues and water monitoring problems are analyzed, with special reference to international waters, using characteristic case studies, including the Sava River, Lake Ohrid, The Nestos/Mesta River, the Neretva River estuary, and coastal waters in Turkey. Contributions written by experts from France, the UK and the USA demonstrate state-of-the-art electronic networking and the management of distributed water databases.
The protection of water resources in the Balkans has become a high profile issue since the collapse of communism in the area, the break up of former Yugoslavia, and ethnic tensions in Kosovo. Transboundary river pollution and the development of international water basins call demand urgent regional co-operation, which will be facilitated by the International Network of Water-Environment Centres for the Balkans, the initiation of which is described in the final conclusions of the book.

A Guide to Choosing Your Children's Schools & Monitoring Their School Experiences is a must read for all current and prospective parents, ideally before their children reach school age. It will help them plan ahead to ensure successful educational experience for their children. The first part of the book draws attention to various factors parents should, but do not always, consider that affect their children's education. For example, what school is best for my child: Public or private; Charter, County or City school? Where you buy a home may take these choices out of your hands! The book challenges parents to use readily available information in print and on the internet, regarding school academic history, location, resources, curriculum and extra-curricular offerings, to plan ahead. It encourages parents to make deliberate choices that would position their children in the neighborhoods that would place them in the best schools. The second part of the book argues for, and illustrates, why parents should closely monitor their children's experiences from pre-school through high school, even in the best of schools. The book concludes with suggestions on various ways parents can forge effective partnerships with the school/teacher to facilitate a successful experience for their children/ward.
