  • Transport Properties of Organic Liquidsby G. Latini; R. Cocci Grifoni; G. Passerini

    WIT Press 2006; US$ 242.00

    The liquid state is possibly the most difficult and intriguing state of matter to model. Organic liquids are required, mainly as working fluids, in almost all industrial activities and in most appliances (e.g. in air conditioning). Transport properties (namely dynamic viscosity and thermal conductivity) are possibly the most important properties for... more...

  • Water Pollution VIIIby C. A. Brebbia; J.S. Antunes Do Carmo

    WIT Press 2006; US$ 564.00

    This book publishes the proceedings of the Eighth International Conference on Modelling, Measuring and Prediction of Water Pollution. Water pollution is a subject of growing public concern. The scientific community has responded very rapidly to the need for studies capable of relating the pollutant discharge with changes in the water quality. The results... more...

  • Disposal of Hazardous Waste in Underground Minesby V. Popov; R. Pusch

    WIT Press 2006; US$ 242.00

    " This book is not a repetition of previously published materials because the editors made sure that other hazardous wastes, such as alkaline batteries, pesticides, consumer goods and products containing dioxins, furans, etc, are included.

  • The Business of Biodiversityby M. Everard

    WIT Press 2009; US$ 156.00

    These days, the business and sustainability agenda is fast-moving.

This will be seen in retrospect as a collective aberration of monstrous... more...
