## Linear Partial Differential Equations

Description Linear Partial Differential Equation If the dependent variable and all its partial derivatives occur linearly in any PDE then such an equation is called linear PDE otherwise a nonlinear PDE. In the above example (1) and (2) are said to be linear equations whereas example (3) and (4) are said to be non-linear equations.

## Nonlinear and Stochastic Dynamics of Compliant Offshore Structures

Description The purpose of this monograph is to show how a compliant offshore structure in an ocean environment can be modeled in two and three di­ mensions. The monograph is divided into five parts. Chapter 1 provides the engineering motivation for this work, that is, offshore structures. These are very complex structures used for a

## PRINCIPLES OF METAL REFINING AND RECYCLING

Description Principles of Metal Refining and Recycling provides a self-contained introduction to the field of purification and recycling of metals. The scientific principles in the treatment of the various metals are the same. The importance of using a clean and properly alloyed metal is described in detail. The text covers thermodynamics, physical and transport properties, mixing,

## HYDRAULIC FRACTURING CHEMICALS AND FLUIDS TECHNOLOGY

Description When classifying fracturing fluids and their additives, it is important that production, operation, and completion engineers understand which chemical should be utilized in different well environments. A user’s guide to the many chemicals and chemical additives used in hydraulic fracturing operations, Hydraulic Fracturing Chemicals and Fluids Technology provides an easy-to-use manual to create fluid formulations that

## ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING

Description Environmental engineers study water, soil and air pollution problems, and develop technical solutions needed to solve, attenuate or control these problems in a manner that is compatible with legislative, economic, social and political concerns.

## Engineering Fundamentals of the Internal Combustion Engine

Description Internal-combustion engine, any of a group of devices in which the reactants of combustion (oxidizer and fuel) and the products of combustion serve as the working fluids of the engine. Such an engine gains its energy from heat released during the combustion of the nonreacted working fluids, the oxidizer-fuel mixture.

## BIM Handbook

Description Building Information Modeling (BIM) offers a novel approach to design, construction, and facility management in which a digital representation of the building product and process is used to facilitate the exchange and interoperability of information in digital format. BIM is beginning to change the way buildings look, the way they function, and the ways

## Blast Mitigation

Description Blast Mitigation: Experimental and Numerical Studies covers both experimental and numerical aspects of material and structural response to dynamic blast loads and its mitigation. The authors present the most up-to-date understanding from laboratory studies and computational analysis for researchers working in the field of blast loadings and their effect on material and structural failure,

## Prestressed Concrete

Description Prestressed concrete is a form of concrete used in construction. It is substantially “prestressed” (compressed) during production, in a manner that strengthens it against tensile forces which will exist when in service.[1][2]: 3–5 [3] This compression is produced by the tensioning of high-strength “tendons” located within or adjacent to the concrete and is done to improve

## Design for Regenerative Cities and Landscapes

Description This book discusses the way to design and plan for regenerative cities and landscapes. Where sustainability aims to safeguard the resources for future generations, and the resilience concept focuses on dealing with shocks to keep the system functioning, regeneration aims to give back more than it takes from the system. This principle is often

## Professional Ethics in Construction and Engineering

Description Provides results of a small, but representative, questionnaire survey of typical project managers, architects and building contractors concerning their views and experiences on a range of ethical issues surrounding construction industry activities. Most (90 per cent) subscribed to a professional code of ethics and many (45 per cent) had an ethical code of conduct

## Concrete and Sustainability

Description Concrete has excellent sustainability qualities, and the industry has made significant progress in reducing its CO2 emissions from cement manufacture. The cement industry has reduced its carbon emissions by 19% since 1990 (GCCA in Numbers, 2020). Sustainability is important to the well-being of our planet, continued growth of a society, and human development. Concrete

## Design of timber structures

Description The book series Design of timber structure Volume 1-3 fills a long-standing gap within the Swedish field of timber engineering. The books are mainly produced for active structural engineers and for students at technical universities and institutes of higher education in Sweden. Researchers, architects, students of lower technical education and people with a general

## WATER SUPPLY ENGINEERING

Description Water Supply Engineering is a branch of Civil Engineering that deals with the Development of Sources of Supply, Distribution, and Treatment of water. Water Supply Engineering helps us to supply clean water to particular cities/towns (i.e. homes). Surface water is that type of water mainly found on the surface of the earth. Example:- Spring,

## Testing of Concrete in Structures

Description Providing a comprehensive overview of the techniques involved in testing concrete in structures, Testing of Concrete in Structures discusses both established techniques and new methods, showing potential for future development, and documenting them with illustrative examples. Topics have been expanded where significant advances have taken place in the field, for example integrity assessment, sub-surface radar, corrosion

## Self-Healing Composite Materials

Description Self-Healing Composite Materials: From Designs to Applications provides a unique resource on self-healing composites for materials scientists and engineers in academia, as well as researchers involved in the aerospace, automotive, wind-generation, construction, consumer goods and marine industries. There is a huge demand for self-healing composites that respond to their environment like living matter. Unlike

## Material Modeling and Structural Mechanics

Description Material Modeling and Structural Mechanics Common engineering materials reach in many applications their limits and newdevelopments are required to fulfil increasing demands on engineering materials. Theperformance of materials can be increased by combining different materials to achievebetter properties than a single constituent or by shaping the material or constituents in aspecific structure. The interaction

## Microalgae Building Enclosures

Description Microalgae architecture has gained awareness for its biotechnical potential to achieve net-zero energy architecture while also promoting ecological sustainability and occupant well-being. Microalgae Building Enclosures: Design and Engineering Principles aims to provide design, engineering, and biotechnical guidelines for microalgae building enclosures that need to be considered for symbiotic relations among the built environment, humans, and ecosystems.

## Concrete Foundations for Turbine Generators

Description The design of turbine-generator foundations requires advanced technical expertise in structural engineering and soil dynamics, as well as close collaboration with manufacturers, mechanical and electrical engineers, and plant designers. Various manufacturers have different requirements for such foundations, and application of code provisions can demand a significant degree of interpretation. Concrete Foundations for Turbine Generators: Analysis,

## FINITE AND BOUNDARY ELEMENT METHODS IN ENGINEERING

Description The interest in finite element method as a solution technique of the computer age is reflected in the availability of many general and special purpose software based on this technique. This work aims to provide a complete and detailed explanation of the basics of the application areas.
