Classroom Tips and Techniques: Roles for the Laplace Transform's Shifting Laws
https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=1723&ref=Feed
The shifting laws for the Laplace transform are examined, and the argument is made that the transform of f(t) Heaviside(t - a) should be done with the third shifting law, reserving the second shifting law strictly for inverting functions of the form e^(-a s) F(s). It is needlessly complicated to apply the second shifting law to functions of the form f(t) Heaviside(t - a)<img src="/view.aspx?si=1723/laplace.PNG" alt="Classroom Tips and Techniques: Roles for the Laplace Transform's Shifting Laws" align="left"/>The shifting laws for the Laplace transform are examined, and the argument is made that the transform of f(t) Heaviside(t - a) should be done with the third shifting law, reserving the second shifting law strictly for inverting functions of the form e^(-a s) F(s).

Long term measurement of heart rate furnishes important information of cardiac anomalies. During a period of about 24 hours pulse rate of a patient at the University Hospital Aachen has been measured. Thus, we have a lots of pulse values, which are important for a medical doctor treating sick patients. We use Maple to analyze this data. At first the given data have been interpolated by cubic spline functions. Then, these functions have been approximated by nonlinear regression and also by Fourier series.<img src="/view.aspx?si=154087/pulsevalues.png" alt="Pulse Values from Long Term Measurement" align="left"/>Long term measurement of heart rate furnishes important information of cardiac anomalies.

If an object is subjected to several forces having different magnitudes and act in different directions, how can determine the magnitude and direction of the resultant total force on the object? Forces are vectors and should be added according to the definition of the vector sum. Engineering dealing with many quantities that have both magnitude and direction and can be expressed and analyzed as vectors.

The so-called Schwarz-Christoffel Panel Method devised and developed by Prof. E. Morishita for the analysis of aerodynamics of airfoils with arbitrary geometry is built as a hidden code in this document. Given the airfoil geometry, the Schwarz-Christoffel transform that maps the unit circle onto the polygon that represents the airfoil, is obtained. Some Maple resources are included to handle and visualize the computed results.<img src="/view.aspx?si=153963/temporaryAirfoils.png" alt="The Schwarz-Christoffel panel method: a computational kit" align="left"/>The so-called Schwarz-Christoffel Panel Method devised and developed by Prof. E.

Many Authors have discussed Nonlinear Regression based upon the LEVENBERG-MARQUART algorithm. Often the SIGMAPLOT Program is very useful, too.
In this worksheet the Maple routine NonlinearFit [Statistics] has been preferred, to fit nonlinear model functions to given data. This routine is very effective and simple to use. Examples in this document include the envelopes of FRENEL's integrals and the hardening of an aluminium alloy.<img src="/applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Nonlinear Regression with Maple" align="left"/>Many Authors have discussed Nonlinear Regression based upon the LEVENBERG-MARQUART algorithm.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153659&ref=Feed
<p>Pipework is a large part of the cost of a process plant. Plant designers need to minimize the total cost of this pipework across the lifetime of the plant. The total overall cost is a combination of individual costs related to the:</p>
<ul>
<li>pipe material,</li>
<li>installation, </li>
<li>maintenance, </li>
<li>depreciation, </li>
<li>energy costs for pumping, </li>
<li>liquid parameters, </li>
<li>required flowrate,</li>
<li>pumping efficiencies,</li>
<li>taxes,</li>
<li>and more.</li>
</ul>
<p>The total cost is not a simple linear sum of the individual costs; a more complex relationship is needed.</p>
<p>This application uses the approach described in [1] to find the pipe diameter that minimizes the total lifetime cost. The method involves the iterative solution of an empirical equation using <a href="/support/help/Maple/view.aspx?path=fsolve">Maple’s fsolve function</a> (the code for the application is in the Startup code region).</p>
<p>Users can choose the pipe material (carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum or brass), and specify the desired fluid flowrate, fluid viscosity and density. The application then solves the empirical equation (using Maple’s fsolve() function) and returns the economically optimal pipe diameter.</p>
<p>Bear in mind that the empirical parameters used in the application vary as economic conditions change. Those used in this application are correct for 1998 and 2008.</p>
