Engineering is where human knowledge meets real-world problems—and solves them. It's the source of some of our greatest inventions, from the catapult to the jet engine. Marshall Brain, creator of the How Stuff Works series and a professor at the Engineering Entrepreneurs Program at NCSU, provides a detailed look at 250 milestones in the discipline. He covers the various areas, including chemical, aerospace, and computer engineering,... more...

Emulsions provides a general introduction, the industrial role of emulsifiers and addresses different problems such as creaming/sedimentation, flocculation, Ostwald ripening, coalescence and phase inversion. Thermodynamics, adsorption and interaction forces between emulsion droplets are thoroughly explained. Supplemented by many figures and tables, it helps to characterize and select the right emulsifier for various industrial... more...

The approach to the book is analogous to a toolkit.  The user will open the book and locate the tool that best fits the ergonomic assessment task he/she is performing. The chapters of the book progress from the concept of ergonomics, through the various assessment techniques, and into the more complex techniques.  In addition to discussing the techniques, this book presents them in a form that the readers can readily adapt to... more...

This major reference manual covers both overall and detail design of structural timber, including aspects such as shear deflection, creep, dynamic and lateral stability considerations for flexural members. It has been substantially revised to take account of changes since the last edition, nearly 20 years ago, and to include the latest revision of British Standard BS 5268-2 : 2002, which has brought design concepts closer to European practice... more...

Computer vision encompasses the construction of integrated vision systems and the application of vision to problems of real-world importance. The process of creating 3D models is still rather difficult, requiring mechanical measurement of the camera positions or manual alignment of partial 3D views of a scene. However using algorithms, it is possible to take a collection of stereo-pair images of a scene and then automatically produce a photo-realistic,... more...


By examining the links and interactions between elements of a system, systems thinking is becoming increasingly relevant when dealing with global challenges, from terrorism to energy to healthcare. Addressing these seemingly intractable systems problems in our society, Systems Thinking: Coping with 21st Century Problems focuses on the inherent opportunities and difficulties of a systems approach. Taking an engineering systems view toward systems... more...

"An astute military historian's appraisal of what separates the sheep from the wolves in the great game of war."—Kirkus ReviewsIf a key to military victory is to "get there first with the most," the true test of the great general is to decide where "there" is—the enemy's Achilles heel. Here is a narrative account of decisive engagements that succeeded by brilliant strategy more than by direct force. The reader accompanies those who fought, from... more...

This book highlights the current limitations of biogas production and yield and new avenues to improving them. Biogas production and yield are among the most important renewable energy targets for our world. Pursuing an innovative and biotechnological approach, the book presents alternative sources for biogas production and explores a broad range of aspects, including: pre-treatment of substrates, accelerators (enzyme-mediated) and... more...
