Introduction to Modeling in Physiology and Medicine
This unified modeling textbook for students of biomedical engineering provides a complete course text on the foundations, theory and practice of modeling and simulation in physiology and medicine. It is dedicated to the needs of biomedical engineering and clinical students, supported by applied BME applications and examples.
Renewable Energy Focus Handbook
Handbook of Industrial and Hazardous Wastes Treatment, Volume II
The new Handbook of Advanced Industrial and Hazardous Wastes Treatment—together with its predecessor, the Handbook of Industrial and Hazardous Wastes Treatment—forms a complete and up-to-date resource that contains all the necessary technical information on hazardous industrial waste treatment.
The Chronology of the Geological Record
Fractured Reservoirs Special Publication no 270 Geological Society Special Publication contain a significant proportion of the global hydrocarbon reserves; however, they commonly exhibit unpredictable and extreme production behaviour. To develop such reservoirs it is necessary to obtain the best understanding possible of the fracture network and its impact on the fluid flow within the reservoir, using the full range of geoscience and engineering datasets available at all scales.
Fracture Mechanics of Ceramics
Fracture Mechanics of Ceramics: Active Materials, Nanoscale Materials, Composites, Glass, and Fundamentals.The symposium also addressed new issues on fundamentals of fracture mechanics and contact mechanics, and a session on reliability and standardization.
Innovation in Food Engineering: New Techniques and Products
This book provides a comprehensive overview of modern processing technologies and their use to develop new or improved food products and ingredients that meet consumers increased demands for quality and safety. Each chapter in the Innovative Techniques section begins with a critical review of the fundamentals of the new or modified technique, its advantages, and relevant results. They include a description of the actual industrial scenario where the technique can be applied, emphasizing benefits and economical relevance of this sector.
Finite Element Methods in Mechanics
This is a textbook written for mechanical engineering students at the first year graduate level. As such, it emphasizes the development of finite element methods used in applied mechanics. The book starts with fundamental formulations of heat conduction and linear elasticity and derives the weak form (i.e. the principle of virtual work in elasticity) from a boundary value problem that represents the mechanical behaviour of solids and fluids.
Rock Physics & Geomechanics in the Study of Reservoir & Repositories
The aim of this book is to emphasize how rock physics and geomechanics help to get a better insight into important issues linked to reservoir management for exploitation of natural resources, and to repository safety assessment for hazardous waste storage in geological environment.
Structurally Complex Reservoirs - Special Publication no 292
Structurally complex reservoirs form a distinct class of reservoir in which fault arrays and fracture networks, in particular, exert an overriding control on petroleum trapping and production behaviour. With modern exploration and production portfolios now commonly held in geologically complex settings, there is an increasing technical challenge to find new prospects and to extract remaining hydrocarbons from these reservoirs.
