Physical Security and Environmental Protection

John Perdikaris

April 22, 2014

Manage a Hazard or Threat Effectively and Prevent It from Becoming a Disaster When disaster strikes, it can present challenges to those caught off guard, leaving them to cope with the fallout. Adopting a risk management approach to addressing threats, vulnerability, and risk assessments is...

Geothermal Systems and Energy Resources: Turkey and Greece

Geothermal Systems and Energy Resources: Turkey and Greece

Alper Baba, Jochen Bundschuh, D. Chandrasekharam

March 07, 2014

In the region comprising Turkey and Greece, people have been using water from geothermal sources for bathing and washing of clothes since ancient times. This region falls within the Alpine-Himalayan orogenic belt and hence is a locus of active volcanism and tectonism and experiences frequent...

Fatigue Life of Riveted Steel Bridges

Fatigue Life of Riveted Steel Bridges

Björn Åkesson

April 21, 2010

Many old riveted railway bridges are replaced too soon due to a general lack of knowledge about the expected life span. This indicates the need for more information on fatigue and brittle fracture of riveted bridges. This book unveils extensive research and literature results on riveted bridges'...

Chan Ghee Koh, Michael J. Perry

December 07, 2009

Rapid advances in computational methods and computer capabilities have led to a new generation of structural identification strategies. Robust and efficient methods have successfully been developed on the basis of genetic algorithms (GA). This volume presents the development of a novel GA-based...

Meso-Scale Shear Physics in Earthquake and Landslide Mechanics

Meso-Scale Shear Physics in Earthquake and Landslide Mechanics

Yossef H. Hatzor, Jean Sulem, Ioannis Vardoulakis

September 28, 2009

The identification of meso-scale phenomena – occurring between microscopic and continuum length scales – has been one of the most exciting developments in rock mechanics in the last decade. Meso-scale phenomena are considered as the bridge between the two length scales in understanding shear...
