Fire and combustion presents a significant engineering challenge to
mechanical, civil and dedicated fire engineers, as well as
specialists in the process and chemical, safety, buildings and
structural fields. We are reminded of the tragic outcomes of
'untenable' fire disasters such as at King's Cross underground
station or Switzerland's St Gotthard tunnel. In these and many
other cases, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is at the forefront
of active research into unravelling the probable causes of fires
and helping to design structures and systems to ensure that they
are less likely in the future.

The first edition of Sound and Structural Vibration was written in
the early 1980s. Since then, two major developments have taken
place in the field of vibroacoustics. Powerful computational
methods and procedures for the numerical analysis of structural
vibration, acoustical fields and acoustical interactions between
fluids and structures have been developed and these are now
universally employed by researchers, consultants and industrial
organisations. Advances in signal processing systems and
algorithms, in transducers, and in structural materials and forms
of construction, have facilitated the development of practical
means of applying active and adaptive control systems to structures
for the purposes of reducing or modifying structural vibration and

Repairable flow networks are a new area of research, which analyzes the repair and flow disruption caused by failures of components in static flow networks. This book addresses a gap in current network research by developing the theory, algorithms and applications related to repairable flow networks and networks with disturbed flows. The theoretical results presented in the book lay the foundations of a new generation of ultra-fast algorithms for optimizing the flow in networks after failures or congestion, and the high computational speed creates the powerful possibility of optimal control of very large and complex networks in real time. Furthermore, the possibility for re-optimizing the network flows in real time increases significantly the yield from real production networks and reduces to a minimum the flow disruption caused by failures. The potential application of repairable flow networks reaches across many large and complex systems, including active power networks, telecommunication networks, oil and gas production networks, transportation networks, water supply networks, emergency evacuation networks, and supply networks.
The book reveals a fundamental flaw in classical algorithms for
maximising the throughput flow in networks, published since the
creation of the theory of flow networks in 1956. Despite the years
of intensive research, the classical algorithms for maximising the
throughput flow leave highly undesirable directed loops of flow in
the optimised networks. These flow loops are associated with
wastage of energy and resources and increased levels of congestion
in the optimised networks.
