Series: Advances in Engineering Research
BISAC: TEC000000

This volume contains eight chapters that detail advances in engineering research. Chapter One shows how molecular dynamics simulation can be an alternative to performing research in highly diverse fields such as medicine, food industry, and mining. Chapter Two provides a review of the contributions of molecular dynamics simulations. Chapter Three analyzes recent developments of electric resistance change measurements in order to provide useful indications on the possible developments of the technique to study fatigue processes. Chapter Four delves into the realm of plant disease control, examining its application in both indoor and outdoor agricultural settings. Chapter Five discusses the use of electromagnetic radiation for biological tissue ablation. Chapter Six aims to obtain a model of aluminum 2024-T3 beams (AA2024-T3) with various damage geometries under compression. Chapter Seven interprets the effects of the detection system parameters on the average rectified value (ARV), and on the median frequency (MDF) of the surface SFAP signal generated in a multilayer cylindrical volume conductor that contains the limb muscle. Lastly, Chapter Eight presents various non-trivial and non-intuitive engineering techniques and macroscopic mechanisms to explore engineered laminated ceramic composites.
