GIS-Based Simulation and Analysis of Intra-Urban Commuting

1st Edition

Yujie Hu, Fahui Wang
November 22, 2018

Commuting, the daily link between residences and workplaces, sets up the complex interaction between the two most important land uses (residential and employment) in a city, and dictates the configuration of urban structure. In addition to prolonged time and stress for individual commuters on...

Finite Element Analysis

1st Edition

Lakshmi Narasaiha
November 21, 2018

The finite element method has undergone a major paradigm shift from a detailed mathematical background for writing tailor-made computer programs to a user-based approach for applying available software to engineering analysis and design scenarios. This textbook begins with a concise overview of...

November 21, 2018

In May 12, 2008, the Wenchuan County earthquake caused devastating loss of human life and property. Applying all the remote sensing technology available, the Chinese Academy of Sciences immediately launched into action, making full use of its state-of-the-art facilities, remote sensing planes, and...

Rapid Load Testing on Piles: Interpretation Guidelines

1st Edition

Paul Holscher, Henk Brassinga, Michael Brown, Peter Middendorp, Maarten Profittlich, Frits A. van Tol
November 21, 2018

A Rapid Load Test (RLT), developed to determine the initial stiffness and bearing capacity, is an economical and practical alternative to a Static Load Test (SLT). The broad application of RLT, however, was hampered by uncertainty about the interpretation of the test results. This book offers clear...

Advances in SAR Remote Sensing of Oceans

1st Edition

Xiaofeng Li, Huadong Guo, Kun-Shan Chen, Xiaofeng Yang
November 21, 2018

The oceans cover approximately 71% of Earth’s surface, 90% of the biosphere and contains 97% of Earth’s water. Since the first launch of SEASAT satellite in 1978, an increasing number of SAR satellites have or will become available, such as the European Space Agency’s ERS-1/-2, ENVISAT, and...

Soil Mechanics Through Project-Based Learning

1st Edition

Ivan Gratchev, Dong-Sheng Jeng, Erwin Oh
November 21, 2018

The currently available soil mechanics textbooks explain theory and show some practical applications through solving abstract geotechnical problems. Unfortunately, they do not engage students in the learning process as students do not "experience" what they study. This book employs a more engaging...

Hydrology and Water Resource Systems Analysis

1st Edition

Maria A. Mimikou, Evangelos A. Baltas, Vassilios A. Tsihrintzis
November 21, 2018

Hydrology and water resources analysis can be looked at together, but this is the only book which presents the relevant material and which bridges the gap between scientific processes and applications in one text. New methods and programs for solving hydrological problems are outlined in a concise...
