  • Digital Architecture and Constructionby A. Ali; C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2006; US$ 218.00

    In the early stages of its employment, architects approached computer technology as an assistance technique that would enhance architectural practice. The scope of this engagement was captured in the phrase ‘computer-aided architectural design’. In the four decades since that time, the role of computer technology in architecture has gained... more...

  • Brownfields IVby E. Beriatos; C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2008; US$ 218.00

    Rehabilitation of brownfields, particularly those which are contaminated can be an expensive undertaking and requires not only technical solutions but the involvement of financial, regulatory and community stakeholders. Fundamental to this process is the analysis of the risks involved and the development of the appropriate strategies. Those need to... more...

  • Eco-Architecture IIby G Broadbent; C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2008; US$ 278.00

    This book contains papers presented at the second International Conference on Eco-Architecture. The original Conference was the first to be held worldwide on the subject of sustainable architecture in order to define what ECO-ARCHITECTURE actually is, i.e. "Harmonisation between Architecture and Nature". The subject has matured in the two... more...

  • Computer Aided Optimum Design in Engineering Xby S. Hernandez; C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2007; US$ 198.00

    Adding optimisation methods enforces engineering design and the influence of these methods cannot be over-emphasised. The resulting solutions provide an efficient way of dealing with some of the most difficult challenges in engineering practice today.This book contains the papers presented at OPTI 2007, the tenth international conference in the series... more...

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

    WIT Press 2008; US$ 316.00

    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 and hazard assessments and in obtaining the dynamic properties of materials. Thus, it is important to recognise... more...

  • Sustainable Irrigation Management, Technologies and Policiesby G. Lorenzini; C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2006; US$ 342.00

    Fresh water is becoming an ever increasingly precious commodity, control of which could lead in the near future to the type of political instability now associated with energy shortages. This book addresses the different aspects of irrigation, including not only the management of water resources and scientific and technical aspects, but also matters... more...

  • Computational Methods in Multiphase Flow IVby A. A. Mammoli; C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2007; US$ 310.00

    Multiphase flow remains one of the unsolved problems in fluid mechanics. There are many factors which make it difficult to deal with such flows. They are very diverse in nature, and as a consequence the laws governing them are similarly varied.This volume contains papers presented at the fourth International Conference on Computational Methods in Multiphase... more...

  • Computational Methods and Experiments in Materials Characterisation IIIby A. A. Mammoli; C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2007; US$ 356.00

    In an age of dwindling resources, knowledge of the behavior of materials takes on an even more important role than was traditionally the case. Not only must a material perform its basic function, but it must do so while satisfying constraints given by ecology, economy, safety and durability. Alongside the science of traditional materials, new areas... more...

  • Advances in Fluid Mechanics VIIby M. Rahman; C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2008; US$ 386.00

    This book covers a wide range of edited papers in the areas of fluid mechanics presented at the Seventh International Conference on Advances in Fluid Mechanics held at The New Forest, UK in May 2008. This international conference originated due to the successful book series “Advances in Fluid Mechanics'”. The conference emphasizes the... more...

  • Boundary Elements and Other Mesh Reduction Methods XXXby L. Skerget; C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2008; US$ 218.00

    The major motivation behind the Boundary Element Method (BEM) was to reduce the dependency of analysis on the definition of meshes. This has allowed the method to expand naturally into new techniques such as Dual Reciprocity and all other Mesh reduction Methods (MRM). MRM and BEM continue to be very active areas of research with many of the resulting... more...
