Revue de presse
"Written by leading experts in the field, this book (which is complementary to Fatigue of Materials and Structures: Application to Damage and Design, also edited by Claude Bathias and Andr Pineau), provides an authoritative, comprehensive and unified treatment of the mechanics and micromechanisms of fatigue in metals, polymers and composites." (PR–Inside.com, 15 March 2011)
"This book offers a concise introduction to the art of building simulation software, collecting the most important concepts and algorithms in one place." (Robotics Technology, 15 March 2011)

Several books have come out in the last decade that draw upon the Discrete Event System Specification (DEVS) theory and applications in one form or another. However, as claimed in its jacket, this book occupies a unique position on this bookshelf. Along with the DEVS theory, the book presents the actual code of the author's 'adevs' simulator and explains it in terms of the covered theory. This will give you dual perspectives to understand both theory and implementation, either of which could readily become unfathomable standing alone.Lire la suite ›

Several books have come out in the last decade that draw upon the Discrete Event System Specification (DEVS) theory and applications in one form or another. However, as claimed in its jacket, this book occupies a unique position on this bookshelf. Along with the DEVS theory, the book presents the actual code of the author's 'adevs' simulator and explains it in terms of the covered theory. This will give you dual perspectives to understand both theory and implementation, either of which could readily become unfathomable standing alone. Along the way, the author also discusses implementation issues in C++ that arise in this context and how the adevs implementation handles them. A major payoff is that, not only will you be able to confidently use the open source adevs code, but you will also be in a good position to extend and apply it, as well as other DEVS implementations.
The book provides examples and applications to illustrate the theory and implementation. A small number of themes are carried through from beginning to end. The main one relates to modeling and simulating a robotic vehicle which is developed in successive stages synchronized to the theoretical progression. A hobbyist's model tank, outfitted with microprocessor control and motor actuator, serves as a down-to-earth system that can be measured, modeled, designed, and simulated with the fidelity needed to get predictions in reasonable agreement with reality. In contrast to most applications, you don't have to take the author's data or word for it; you can simply purchase the parts for a few dollars and build both the real tank and its simulation yourself.
The robotic tank model well illustrates the conjunction of continuous and discrete event dynamics that tomorrow's engineers will need to master. Learning DEVS and building software for such hybrid simulation will probably never attain anywhere the near the popularity of today's programming technologies - it is hard to imagine a book called "DEVS for Dummies!" Nevertheless, after the more easily done information technology is completed, there will remain the challenges of linking the self-contained abstractions of programming with the physical reality of systems that must work with them - think of the complexities that smart cars will be bringing as they take over more decision making from drivers and interact in probably unintuitive (emergent) ways on streets and highways. Moreover, increasingly it is being recognized that our competitive capability in such new technologies will determine whether we continue to enjoy today's standard of living. Hard as it is, building DEVS-based hybrid simulation will give you a uniquely marketable skill set enabling you to participate in the knowledge-based technology solutions of the rapidly arriving future.
