* A desktop sourcebook for those who deal with pumps and pumping systems on a daily basis--covers design, application, and pumped water systems

There continues to be widespread interest in the applications of hydrogen as a clean fuel and its potential for local electricity production and use in transport. Recent years have seen a variety of breakthroughs in our understanding of the nature, structure, and biosynthesis of hydrogenases. This book is a timely description of these developments, taking a lucid, multidisciplinary approach. Scientists in fields, such as clean technology, biochemistry,... more...

This volume provides an ample overview of state-of-the-art understanding of the multi-dimensional phenomenon of migration, in the characterisation of migration drivers, in environmental and agro-economic case studies and modelling issues as well as socio-political analyses. The analysis is geared to the consequences of climatic change, and the effects on soil, water and extreme weather that will drive populations to migrate.

Advanced mathematics used in engineering is studied here in this text which examines the relationship between the principles in natural processes and those employed in engineered processes. The text covers principles, practices and the mathematics involved in the design and operation of environmental engineering works. It also presents engineering modelling tools and environmental algorithm examples. Major subjects covered in this book include:*... more...

This book explores the life and scientific legacy of Manfred Schroeder through personal reflections, scientific essays and Schroeder’s own memoirs. Reflecting the wide range of Schroeder’s activities, the first part of the book contains thirteen articles written by his colleagues and former students. Topics discussed include his early, pioneering contributions to the understanding of statistical room acoustics and to the measurement... more...


This detailed reference provides guidelines for the selection and utilization of electric motors for improved reliability, performance, energy-efficiency, and life-cycle cost. Completely revised and expanded, the book reflects the recent state of the field, as well as recent developments in control electronics, the economics of energy-efficient motors and systems, and advanced power electronic drivers. It includes five new chapters covering key topics... more...


Developments in technologies have evolved in a much wider use of technology throughout science, government, and business; resulting in the expansion of geographic information systems. GIS is the academic study and practice of presenting geographical data through a system designed to capture, store, analyze, and manage geographic information.Geographic Information Systems: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications is a collection... more...

Many species of plants, microbes, and animals have been introduced around the world. Species are considered "invasive" or "alien" when they are not native to an area, but become established and cause, or are likely to cause, economic or environmental harm or harm to human health. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the threats, ecological impacts and control methods relating to invasive species. Topics include... more...

Ground bearing concrete floors, industrial concrete hardstandings and concrete highway pavements have not, in the past, been perceived as a single type of structural element and their construction has taken place independently of each other. This is in spite of their obvious commonality in the areas of design, materials, geotechnical appreciation and construction. Ground Bearing Concrete Slabs has been specifically written to break down the walls... more...
