  • Cogenerationby David Flin

    The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2009; US$ 60.00

    If there are two phrases we have come to know very well, they are 'environmental awareness' and 'credit crunch'. The world is looking for ways to decrease the emission of CO 2 into the atmosphere, without incurring major costs in doing so. more...

  • Oliver Heavisideby Basil Mahon

    The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2009; US$ 70.00

    A compelling account of the life of one of the great pioneers of electrical science Oliver Heaviside (1850-1925). He showed how to analyse circuit, how to rid telephone lines of distortion and interpreted Maxwell's theory of electromagnetism in a way that working engineers and physicists could understand. more...
