Despite mature applications, advanced technology, and high volume, rubber compounding has never had a book of its own. Today, emerging applications such as tire reclamation and smoke-resistant cables combine with an industry push into engineering materials to create new kinds of compounds with new quality control problems. The Mixing of Rubber has been developed over several years in conjunction with the Farrel Corp./Connecticut Rubber Group course to educate the hands-on compounder and the end user …

The change in greenhouse operation and technology in the last 20 years has been unprecedented. Photoperiodic control, mist propagation, green­ house cooling, clean stock programs, CO injection, to name a few, have 2 all been inaugurated as regular greenhouse practices in this time. The introduction of new markets, new production centers, shifts in public attitudes, and the realization that greenhouse production is not simply growing crops, but the management of an enterprise in which people work, …

The quest for building systems that can function automatically has attracted a lot of attention over the centuries and created continuous research activities. As users of these systems we have never been satisfied, and demand more from the artifacts that are designed and manufactured. The current trend is to build autonomous systems that can adapt to changes in their environment. While there is a lot to be done before we reach this point, it is not possible to separate manufacturing systems from …

Cellular transformation and carcinogenesis are considered a multistep process starting with DNA lesions and progressing through loss of cellular growth control and increase invasive and metastatic properties. This book focuses on the demonstration of important steps in carcinogenesis, ranging from chemical interaction of carcinogens with cellular DNA in experimental tumors and cell lines to the analysis of selected human tumors. Special importance is given to the clarification of mechanisms of DNA …

Identifying the input-output relationship of a system or discovering the evolutionary law of a signal on the basis of observation data, and applying the constructed mathematical model to predicting, controlling or extracting other useful information constitute a problem that has been drawing a lot of attention from engineering and gaining more and more importance in econo­ metrics, biology, environmental science and other related areas. Over the last 30-odd years, research on this problem has rapidly …

Modern computer-based control systems are able to collect a large amount of information, display it to operators and store it in databases but the interpretation of the data and the subsequent decision making relies mainly on operators with little computer support. This book introduces developments in automatic analysis and interpretation of process-operational data both in real-time and over the operational history, and describes new concepts and methodologies for developing intelligent, state space-based …

Management science is a di scipl ine dedicated to the development of techniques that enable decision makers to cope with the increasing complexity of our world. The early burst of excitement which was spawned by the development and successful applications of linear programming to problems in both the public and private sectors has challenged researchers to develop even more sophisticated methods to deal with the complex nature of decision making. Sophistication, however, does not always trans 1 ate …

Sheet and film processes include coating, papermaking, metal rolling, and polymer film extrusion. Products produced by these processes include paper, bumper stickers, plastic bags, windshield safety glass, and sheet metal. The total capitalization of industries that rely on these processes is well over $ 500 billion worldwide. These processes are notorious for being difficult to control.The goal of this book is to present the theoretical background and practical techniques for the identification …

The nature of the coevolutionary process that produced the interactions between plant kairomones and insect sensory organs suggests that kairomones can be employed for insect control in a variety of baits and traps. This book discusses the major theoretical approaches to the subject, as well as a number of specific applications in pest control. The authors describe their own work with volatile kairomones and their synthetic analogues used in the control of fruitflies and the corn rootworm beetle, …

This book reflects the considerable current industrial interest and investment in process control systems. The use of computer systems in process control can provide great benefits, and it is estimated that efficiency can be increased by up to 30%. It is not surprising, therefore, that there have been considerable efforts by system designers and users to introduce and use such systems. Process hardware is integrated into a complete production system through data processing. It is for this purpose …

In the early days of the twentieth century, Otto Orkin, a fourteen-year-old Latvian immigrant, became an expert at killing rats in order to protect his family s winter food supply on their farm in Pennsylvania. As he grew into adulthood, he used that skill to help other people with their pest control problems and, in the process, built a company ten times bigger than its closest competitor. Orkin trusted his instincts, which told him that developing and keeping customer trust was the key to good …
