Crop Systems Dynamics: An ecophysiological simulation model by Xinyou Yin

By Xinyou Yin

This e-book provides a commonplace process-based crop development version, GECROS (Genotype-by-Environment interplay on CROp progress Simulator), lately constructed in Wageningen. The version makes use of strong but uncomplicated algorithms to summarize the present wisdom of person physiological procedures and their interactions and suggestions mechanisms. It was once established from the fundamentals of whole-crop platforms dynamics to include the physiological motives instead of descriptive algorithms of the emergent results. It additionally makes an attempt to version every one approach at a constant point of element, in order that no region is overemphasized and equally no zone is taken care of in a trivial demeanour. major consciousness has been paid to interactive elements in crop development resembling photosynthesis-transpiration coupling through stomatal conductance, carbon-nitrogen interplay on leaf quarter index, useful stability among shoot and root actions, and interaction among resource provide and sink call for on reserve formation and remobilization. GECROS combines strong version set of rules, excessive computational potency, and exact version output with minimal variety of enter parameters that require periodical damaging sampling to estimate

Stories of Modern Technology Failures and Cognitive by Nancy J. Cooke

By Nancy J. Cooke

A girl is operated on whereas she's awake...

A aircraft runs out of gasoline whereas circling an airport for 30 minutes...

A passenger liner is wrong for an enemy fighter and shot down...

A corporation invests in a brand new procedure that might expense them money...

What do those failure have in common?  How do we hinder them from occurring back?

Offering a serious viewpoint on issues of human-technical platforms, Stories of contemporary know-how disasters and Cognitive Engineering Successes explores the numerous efforts of these who've made a favorable difference.  The e-book analyzes numerous cognitive engineering functions, together with education, layout, army, transportation, communications, medication, and emergency reaction within the nuclear undefined.

actual global examples comprise—

  • Designing a army education software that more suitable the detection premiums of land mines
  • Redesigning a visual display unit to aid anesthesiologists expect dosages extra effectively
  • Implementing new protocols to enhance the workflow and protection of a nuclear energy plant
  • The book’s concentrate on cognitive engineering recommendations emphasizes method equivalent to wisdom elicitation, laboratory experiences, naturalistic remark, usability, and modeling. It addresses hugely complicated platforms in addition to conventional human-machine interfaces.

    This booklet demonstrates how cognitive engineers—

  • Identify and tackle cognitive problems
  • Develop, attempt, and enforce solutions
  • Consider social, cultural, political, and financial factors
  • Develop standards to degree the luck of a solution
