Nonlinear Approaches in Engineering Applications 2 focuses on the application of nonlinear approaches to different engineering and science problems. The selection of the topics for this book is based on the best papers presented in the ASME 2010 and 2011 in the tracks of Dynamic Systems and Control, Optimal Approaches in Nonlinear Dynamics and Acoustics, both of which were organized by the editors. For each selected topic, detailed concept development, derivations and relevant knowledge are provided for the convenience of the readers. The topics that have been selected are of great interest in the fields of engineering and physics and this book is designed to appeal to engineers and researchers working in a broad range of practical topics and approaches.
