  • Repair and Redesign of Physiological Systemsby M.A. Atherton; M.W. Collins; M.J. Dayer

    WIT Press 2008; US$ 218.00

    Surgical repair of the human body is where design and nature intersect most significantly because here manmade technology serves to enhance and even prolong human life. Engineers and clinicians have long been collaborators working to improve the human physical condition and in this volume we have contributors from both fields revealing current state... more...

  • Plate Heat Exchangersby L. Wang; B. Sunden; R. M. Manglik

    WIT Press 2007; US$ 218.00

    Heat exchangers are important, and used frequently in the processing, heat and power, air-conditioning and refrigeration, heat recovery, transportation and manufacturing industries. Such equipment is also important in electronics cooling and for environmental issues like thermal pollution, waste disposal and sustainable development.The present book... more...

  • 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...

  • Boundary Elements and Other Mesh Reduction Methods XXIXby C. A. Brebbia; D. Poljak; V. Popov

    WIT Press 2007; US$ 264.00

    The International Conference on Boundary Element and other Mesh Reduction Methods is now in its 29th year. The papers presented at the conference are contained in this volume. The continued success of this important meeting is due to the strength of the work carried out by the community since the original conference took place in Southampton in 1978.The... more...

  • Domain Decomposition Techniques for Boundary Elementsby C. A. Brebbia; H. Power; L. Skerget

    WIT Press 2007; US$ 218.00

    The sub-domain techniques in the BEM are nowadays finding its place in the toolbox of numerical modellers, especially when dealing with complex 3D problems. We see their main application in conjunction with the classical BEM approach, which is based on a single domain, when part of the domain needs to be solved using a single domain approach, the classical... more...

  • The Internet Society IIby K. Morgan; C. A. Brebbia; J.M. Spector

    The continued growth of Internet-based technologies and the increasing emergence of mobile and wireless high-speed access dramatically affects the ways in which we work, learn, communicate, play and even govern our society. The constant availability of information and communication changes our views of our self and the social rules that govern our... more...

  • Fracture and Damage of Compositesby M. Guagliano; M.H. Aliabadi

    WIT Press 2005; US$ 246.00

    Composites offer great promise as light and strong materials whose uses are no longer confined to high performance structures. Their major advantages, which are true for almost all composites, are increased stiffness with respect to homogeneous materials and in increased strength to crack extension. However, their application is still limited by the... 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...

    WIT Press 2008; US$ 364.00

    50 years after the 1st Oxford Conference on Architectural Education, the 2008 Conference brought together over 500 people from 42 countries to share best practice, discuss how, when, where and why we teach architecture now and in the future. The eleven conference Forums covered a range of topics including Buildings and the Environment; Sustaining Studio... more...

  • Coastal Watershed Managementby A. Fares; A.I. El-Kadi

    WIT Press 2008; US$ 318.00

    Coastal watersheds differ from others by their unique features, including proximity to the ocean, weather and rainfall patterns, subsurface features, and land covers. Land use changes and competing needs for valuable water and land resources are especially more distinctive to such watersheds. This book covers recent research relevant to coastal watersheds.... more...
