  • Noise and Vibration Controlby M. L. Munjal

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 111.00

    Vibration and Noise are two interrelated terms in the field of mechanical engineering. Vibration is caused by unbalanced inertial forces and moments whereas noise is the result of such vibrations. Noisy machines have always been a matter of concern. Lesser vibration ensures manufacturing to closer tolerances, lesser wear and tear, and longer fatigue... more...

  • Urban Smellscapesby Victoria Henshaw

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 53.95

    We see the city, we hear the city, but above all: we smell the city. Scent has unique qualities: ubiquity, persistence, and an unparalleled connection to memory, yet it has gone overlooked in discussions of sensory design. What scents shape the city? How does scent contribute to placemaking? How do we design smell environments in the city? Urban... more...

  • Atmospheric Dispersion Modellingby Rod Barratt

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 163.95

    To comply with legal and other standards, businesses and regulators are increasingly required to make decisions based on risk assessments of the potential effects of their activities on the environment. Atmospheric dispersion modelling is a cost-effective method, allowing various scenarios to be explored before expensive investment takes place. This... more...

  • Oxy-Fuel Combustion for Power Generation and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Captureby L Zheng

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 255.00

    Oxy-fuel combustion is currently considered to be one of the major technologies for carbon dioxide (CO2) capture in power plants. The advantages of using oxygen (O2) instead of air for combustion include a CO2-enriched flue gas that is ready for sequestration following purification and low NOx emissions. This simple and elegant technology has attracted... more...

  • Developments and Innovation in Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Capture and Storage Technologyby M. Mercedes Maroto-Valer

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 290.00

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage (CCS) is the one advanced technology that conventional power generation cannot do without. CCS technology reduces the carbon footprint of power plants by capturing, and storing the CO2 emissions from burning fossil-fuels and biomass. This volume provides a comprehensive reference on the state of the art research,... more...

  • Climate Change Cooperation in Southern Africaby Ian Rowlands

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 53.95

    This volume, published in association with the United Nations Environment Programme, examines how co-ordinated action among neighbouring countries could reduce greenhouse gas emissions in ways which are environmentally, economically and socially beneficial. A framework is presented for analyzing regional mitigation options, along with specific proposals... more...

  • The Effects of Air Pollution on the Built Environmentby Peter Brimblecombe

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 119.00

    Air pollution damages materials, but it has changed dramatically in the past century, with a reduction in the concentration of corrosive primary pollutants in urban atmospheres. At the same time, architectural styles and types of materials have changed, as we have moved to more organically rich, photochemically active atmospheres. Contemporary air... more...

  • Porous Materials for Carbon Dioxide Captureby An-Hui Lu; Sheng Dai

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    This multi-authored book provides a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in porous CO2 capture materials, including ionic liquid-derived carbonaceous adsorbents, porous carbons, metal-organic frameworks, porous aromatic frameworks, micro porous organic polymers. It also reviews the sorption techniques such as cyclic uptake and desorption... more...

  • Globale Agendaby Benedikt Strunz

    Nomos Verlagsgesellschaft 2014; US$ 49.35

    Internationale Nachrichtensender (INC) vermitteln ein unausgewogenes Bild der Welt. Eine empirische Untersuchung, u.a. von BBC World News und CNN International, zeigt, dass auch ?globale Nachrichtenformate? nur einige wenige Länder in ihren Nachrichtenfokus rücken. Im Mittelpunkt stehen dabei oftmals die Herkunftsländer der jeweiligen Sender sowie... more...
