Fire Effects on Soil Properties

1st Edition

Paulo Pereira, Jorge Mataix-Solera, Xavier Úbeda, Guillermo Rein, Artemi Cerdà, Guillermo Rein
February 12, 2019

Wildland fires are occurring more frequently and affecting more of Earth's surface than ever before. These fires affect the properties of soils and the processes by which they form, but the nature of these impacts has not been well understood. Given that healthy soil is necessary to sustain...

Natural Stone and World Heritage: Salamanca (Spain)

1st Edition

Dolores Pereira
February 05, 2019

Heritage stones are those stones that have been used for many years, even centuries, to build the historic buildings and monuments of places around the world. Some of these stones are still being used for construction, but others are no longer used, either because quarries were exhausted or closed...

January 25, 2019

Sustainable Engineering: Principles and Implementation provides a comprehensive overview of the interdisciplinary field of sustainability as it applies to engineering and methods for implementation of sustainable practices. Due to increasing constraints on resources and on the environment and...

Revival: Pipeline Engineering (2004)

1st Edition

Henry Liu
January 25, 2019

Pipeline engineering has struggled to develop as a single field of study due to the wide range of industries and government organizations using different types of pipelines for all types of solids, liquids, and gases. This fragmentation has impeded professional development, job mobility, technology...

Revival: Twelfth International Conference on Adaptive Structures and Technologies (2002)

1st Edition

Norman Wereley, Inderjit Chopra, Darryll J Pines
January 25, 2019

This paper reviews some of the important technical barriers that must be overcome to achieve truly efficient flying adaptive micro air vehicles (MAVs). As defined by the Defense Advanced Research Agency (DARPA), MAVs are vehicles with no length dimension greater than 6 inches. These vehicles...

Bio-Climatology for Built Environment

1st Edition

Masanori Shukuya
January 18, 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...

Design of Prestressed Concrete to Eurocode 2

2nd Edition

Raymond Ian Gilbert, Neil Colin Mickleborough, Gianluca Ranzi
January 14, 2019

The design of structures in general, and prestressed concrete structures in particular, requires considerably more information than is contained in building codes. A sound understanding of structural behaviour at all stages of loading is essential. This textbook presents a detailed description and...
