Due to the constraints on resources and the environment, engineers are faced with new challenges. While it is generally believed that the concepts of sustainable development must be adhered to protect future generations, in practice it is very difficult. Therefore, the focus of this book is to provide both conceptual understanding and practical skills to apply sustainable engineering principles to engineering design. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the interdisciplinary field of sustainability as it applies to engineering. It will describe the tools, protocols and guidelines that are currently available through case studies and examples from around the world.
