The book provides an application-oriented overview of functional analysis, with extended and accessible presentations of key concepts such as spline basis functions, data smoothing, curve registration, functional linear models and dynamic systems. Functional data analysis is put to work in a wide a range of applications, so that new problems are likely to find close analogues in this book. The code in R and Matlab in the book has been designed to permit easy modification to adapt to new data structures and research problems.

From the BackCover: Scientists often collect samples of curves and other functional observations, and develop models where parameters are also functions. This volume in the UseR! Series is aimed at a wide range of readers, and especially those who would like apply these techniques to their research problems.  It complements Functional Data Analysis, Second Edition and Applied Functional Data Analysis: Methods and Case Studies by providing computer code in both the R and Matlab languages for a set of data analyses that showcase functional data analysis techniques. The authors make it easy to get up and running in new applications by adapting the code for the examples, and by being able to access the details of key functions within these pages. This book is accompanied by additional web-based support at for applying existing functions and developing new ones in either language. The companion 'fda' package for R includes script files to reproduce nearly all the examples in the book including all but one of the 76 figures.

Modeling and computing is becoming an essential part of the analysis and design of an engineered system. This is also true of "geotechnical systems", such as soil foundations, earth dams and other soil-structure systems. The general goal of modeling and computing is to predict and understand the behaviour of the system subjected to a variety of possible conditions/scenarios (with respect to both external stimuli and system parameters), which provides the basis for a rational design of the system. The essence of this is to predict the response of the system to a set of external forces. The modelling and computing essentially involve the following three phases: (a) Idealization of the actual physical problem, (b) Formulation of a mathematical model represented by a set of equations governing the response of the system, and (c) Solution of the governing equations (often requiring numerical methods) and graphical representation of the numerical results. This book will introduce these phases.

Developments in numerical methods and higher-speed computing are providing rapid advances in the analysis and design of complex structures so rapid that it can be difficult for engineers to keep abreast of this expanding knowledge. Modeling Complex Engineering Structures provides an overview of cutting-edge developments in computational theory and techniques as currently applied in various fields of structural analysis, in the United States and around the world. Individual contributors discuss research and practice in diverse but related applications such as high-rise buildings, lightweight long-span roofs, bridges, geotechnical structures, aging nuclear structures, offshore structures, automobiles, aircraft, and ships. By presenting a state-of-the-art view across so many applications of structural analysis, Modeling Complex Engineering Structures encourages the cross fertilization of modeling approaches, computational techniques, and performance assessment analyses from one engineering discipline to another, making this book an essential reference for analysts and designers from all disciplines.

Exploitation of oil and gas reserves from hydrocarbon reservoirs below the sea bed has increased rapidly since the 1960s. However, the wide range of subject areas within ocean engineering has posed problems in the teaching of students because it involves reference to textbooks on many disciplines including corrosion metallurgy, meteorology, process engineering and even marine biology. In this textbook, the author aims to present an integrated treatment of the main subject areas which contribute to the design, construction, installation and operation of fixed and floating offshore structures. It emphasizes the fundamentals of oceanography, fluid mechanics, wave theory, hydrodynamics and structural analysis for students reading ocean engineering or naval architecture at undergraduate or postgraduate level. Sections on model testing, full-scale measurements, design and certification are also included to ensure that the book is of value to professional engineers.
