  • Ecosytems and Sustainable Development VIIby C. A. Brebbia; E. Tiezzi

    WIT Press 2009; US$ 558.00

    ECOSUD is a challenge for the creation of a new science in line with Prigogine’s statement that "at all levels we observe events associated with the emergence of novelties and narrative elements, which we may associate with the creative power of nature". This is not only a platform to present novel research related to ecological problems... more...

  • The Art of Resisting Extreme Natural Forcesby C. A. Brebbia; S. Hernandez

    WIT Press 2007; US$ 98.00

    According to the ancient Greeks, nature was composed of four elements: air, fire, water and earth. Engineers are continuously faced with the challenge imposed by those elements, in activities such as the design of bridges and high buildings to withstand high winds; the construction of fire resistant structures, the control of floods and wave forces;... more...

  • Electrochemical Process Simulation IIIby C. A. Brebbia; R. A. Adey

    WIT Press 2009; US$ 182.00

    Modern Industry applies a wide range of electrochemical process to protect against corrosion, to provide surface treatments, and to manufacture products.

  • Risk Analysis VIby C. A. Brebbia; E Beriatos

    WIT Press 2008; US$ 438.00

    Advances in computational methods and the ability to model systems more precisely now enable hazards to be quantified, their effects to be simulated and risk analysis to be pursued with greater accuracy, providing for more effective risk management. These developments are not only important for all areas of human endeavour but have particular relevance... more...

  • Eco-Architectureby G. Broadbent; C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2006; US$ 380.00

  • Structures Under Shock and Impact IXby N. Jones; C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2006; US$ 480.00

    This book contains the papers presented at the ninth International Conference on Structures Under Shock and Impac.The shock and impact behaviour of structures is a challenging area, not only because of the obvious time-dependent aspects, but also because of the difficulties in specifying the external dynamic loading characteristics for structural designs... more...

  • Energy and Sustainability IIby A. A. Mammoli; C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2009; US$ 490.00

    The way in which our society exists, operates and develops is strongly influenced by the way in which energy is produced and consumed. No process in Industry can be performed without sufficient supply of energy, and without Industry there can be no production of commodities on which the existence of modern Society depends. The energy systems evolved... more...
