Environmental Engineering: Designing a Sustainable Future (Green Technology)

Buy

Environmental engineering's future seems boundless because it is based in the myriad ways in which nature solves its own engineering challenges. People have yet to design a system that pumps water 200 feet straight up toward the sky in a system that is silent, requires no mechanical pumps, and never malfunctions, yet giant sequoia trees do this every day. Environmental engineering has a distance to go to mimic nature's activities, but fortunately, nature provides endless examples of processes like the sequoias' that maximize energy conservation. Environmental engineering represents a discipline that will be required for almost all future technologies in energy conservation. Featuring full-color photographs and line illustrations, this new book shows how some engineering projects turn out to be quite complex endeavors, while a good number draw on the simplicity of natural systems by following nature's theme of 'less is more'. It also discusses the ways in which environmental engineering blends the best aspects of art and design with the sciences of physics, geology, ecology, and the chemistry of matter. Chapters include: New Directions in Civil Engineering; Designing Transit Systems; Innovations in Personal Vehicles; Sustainable Manufacturing; Energy Efficient Electronics; Ecological Landscape Design; and, Sustainable Wastewater Treatment.

The Engineering of Mixed Reality Systems (Human-Computer Interaction Series)
The Engineering of Mixed Reality Systems (Human-Computer Interaction Series)

An increasing number of systems are exploiting mixed reality but to date there are no systematic methods, techniques or guidelines for the development of such systems. In bringing together contributions on a broad range of mixed reality development issues this book provides a sound theoretical foundation for a disciplined approach to mixed...

Controlled Self-Organisation Using Learning Classifier Systems
Controlled Self-Organisation Using Learning Classifier Systems

The complexity of technical systems increases continuously. Breakdowns and fatal errors occur quite often, respectively. Therefore, the mission of organic computing is to tame these challenges in technical systems by providing appropriate degrees of freedom for self-organised behaviour. Technical systems should adapt to changing requirements...

Messaging for Engineering: From Research to Action
Messaging for Engineering: From Research to Action

For those in the broad engineering community--those who employ, work with, and/or educate engineers, and engineers themselves--there is no need to explain the importance and value of engineering. They understand that engineers help make the world a better place for all, that they regularly grapple with important societal and environmental...

The Design and Implementation of Geographic Information Systems
The Design and Implementation of Geographic Information Systems
We have written this book to help practitioners design and implement multiuser, multiunit GISs to assist in their spatial decision-making.These are called corporate or enterprise GISs.We presume that you know what a GIS is, already have some experience with GIS, and have some ideas about what it can do.We also assume you are interested in improving...
