Bhavik R. Bakshi
AUD $ 136.95 / NZD $ 147.95
Drawing on multidisciplinary perspectives from engineering, economics, business, science, and human behavior, this text presents an unrivalled introduction to how engineering practice can contribute to sustainable development. Varied approaches for assessing the sustainability of engineering and other human activities are presented in detail, and potential solutions to meet key challenges are proposed, with an emphasis on those that require engineering skills. Each concept and approach is supported by mathematical representation, solved problems, real-world examples, and self-study exercises.
An Introduction to Composite Materials
T. W. Clyne, D. Hull
AUD $ 81.95 / NZD $ 88.95
This updated edition provides both scientists and engineers with all the information they need to understand composite materials, covering their underlying science and technological usage. It includes four completely new chapters on surface coatings, highly porous materials, bio-composites and nano-composites, as well as thoroughly revised chapters on fibres and matrices, the design, fabrication and production of composites, mechanical and thermal properties, and industry applications. Extensively expanded referencing engages readers with the latest research and industrial developments in the field with an increased coverage of essential background science. An invaluable text for final-year undergraduates in materials science and engineering, and graduate students and researchers in academia and industry.
AUD $ 118.95 / NZD $ 128.95
In the multi-disciplinary field of wind energy, students and professionals can often be uncomfortable outside their own specialist areas. This essential textbook explains the key aspects of wind turbine technology and its application in a single readable text. Covering a broad range of multi-disciplinary topics, including everything from aerodynamics through to electrical and control theory, to structures, planning, economics, and policy, this reference is an excellent toolkit for undergraduate students, postgraduate students, and professionals in the field of wind energy.
Energy: Supply and Demand
David B. Rutledge
AUD $ 90.95 / NZD $ 98.95
This text provides students with a comprehensive account of the subject and an understanding of how to use data analysis and modelling to make projections and study climate impacts. Developments in technology and policy are discussed, including the role of coal, fracking revolutions for oil and gas, the electricity grid, wind and solar power, battery storage, and biofuels. Trends in demand are detailed, with analysis of industrial demands like LEDs, air conditioning, heat pumps, and information technology, and the transportation demands of railroads, ships, and cars (including electric vehicles). Accompanied by a package of online resources, this is an ideal text for courses on energy and is accessible to a range of students from engineering and related disciplines.
Introduction to Coastal Processes and Geomorphology
Robin Davidson-Arnott, Bernard Bauer, Chris Houser
AUD $ 81.95 / NZD $ 88.95
Accessible to students from a range of disciplines, the quantitative approach of this book helps to build a solid understanding of wave and current processes that shape coastlines. From sandy beaches to coral reefs, the major coastal features are related to contemporary processes and to sea-level changes over the past 25,000 years. Key equations describing these processes and standard methods used to collect measurements are all presented in this overview. Designed to support a one- or two-semester course and grounded in current research, this second edition features cutting-edge new topics, insights from new models and technologies, additional global examples and an enhanced package of online teaching material.
