Distributed Database Management Systems

RRP $368.99

<b>Unique coverage of traditional database theory and current research for building easier-to-mange distributed database systems</b> <p> A distributed database management system (DDBMS) is a layer of software, implemented on top of existing database management systems, allowing users transparent access to information dispersed across a network. This book addresses the architectural and platform issues on the design and development of a DDBMS, guiding readers in building their own systems in real-world environments. <p> <i>Distributed Database Management Systems</i> is divided into three units. The first provides a theoretical foundation for understanding the internal processing of the DDBMS available to address these issues. The second unit presents the &#8220;state of the practice,&#8221; examining the architectural alternatives that practitioners will likely encounter in the real world and the exploring the general requirements for any platform capable of implementing a DDBMS architectural alternative&#8212;including those yet to be invented. The final unit focuses on distributed database implementation, examining three platforms suitable for the development of a real DDBMS system&#8212;the Java Message Service (JMS), the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE), and the Microsoft .NET Framework. For each, a &#8220;starter kit&#8221; is provided (containing a detailed overview and an extensible framework) and discussed in detail.


Micromechanism Of Cleavage Fracture Of Metals

RRP $237.80

In this book the authors focus on the description of the physical nature of cleavage fracture to offer scientists, engineers and students a comprehensive physical model which vividly describes the cleavage microcracking processes operating on the local (microscopic) scale ahead of a defect. The descriptions of the critical event and the criteria for cleavage fracture will instruct readers in how to control the cleavage processes and optimize microstructure to improve fracture toughness of metallic materials.

  • Physical (mechanical) processes of cleavage fracture operating on the local (microscopic) scale, with the focus on the crack nucleation and crack propagation across the particle/grain and grain/grain boundaries
  • Critical event, i.e., the stage of greatest difficulty in forming the microcrack, which controls the cleavage fracture
  • Criteria triggering the cleavage microcracking with incorporation of the actions of macroscopic loading environment into the physical model
  • Effects of microstructure on the cleavage fracture, including the effects of grain size, second phase particles and boundary
  • Comprehensive description of the brittle fracture emerging in TiAl alloys and TiNi memory alloys
