Fluvial Processes: 2nd Edition

1st Edition

Featured

Ana Maria Ferreira da Silva, M. Selim Yalin
August 8, 2017

A stream flowing in alluvium deforms its bed surface, forming ripples, dunes, bars, etc., and, in many instances, it deforms its channel entirely, thereby creating meandering or braiding patterns. It could be said that, in general, an alluvial stream and its deformable boundary undergo a variety of ...

Bio-Climatology for Built Environment

1st Edition

Masanori Shukuya
January 23, 2019

Indoor climate is determined by rational lighting, heating, cooling and ventilating systems. For occupants' well-being it should be consistent with how regional outdoor climate works in the flow of radiation via four paths of heat transfer: radiation; convection; conduction; and evaporation. This...
