Handbook of Burner Technology for Industrial Furnaces: Fundamentals – Burner – Applications 2nd Edition
This work is intended to provide support for the clean and efficient heating of industrial furnaces. The initial chapters of the Handbook of Burner Technology for Industrial Furnaces, Second Edition deal with the indispensable theoretical principles of combustion theory, fluid mechanics and heat transfer. Only those aspects that are of importance for burner technology are examined. The succeeding chapters then proceed on to burner technology as such, and focus on combustion-system concepts, analyze pollutant generation and reduction, and discuss the recovery of heat for use in combustion-air preheating, the most important provision for the enhancement of energy-efficiency. This compact-format book, with its plethora of information, is an indispensable reference source for all persons who are professionally involved in any way at all with the heating and combustion-systems of industrial furnaces.

Transportation is arguably the most critical component of global supply chains. And one of the most complex. Delivering comprehensive coverage of current domestic and global transportation trends, “Management Transportation, 7e, International Edition” equips your students with a solid understanding of this dynamic field. More student friendly than ever, the seventh edition helps readers understand both the fundamental role and importance of transportation in companies and in society, as well as the complex environment in which transportation service is provided today. Taking a managerial approach, the authors give students the tools to successfully adapt to this fast-paced and rapidly changing industry. The text is organized into three parts. Part I provides a framework and foundation for the role of transportation from a micro and macro perspective in supply chains. Discussions include both the theoretical and managerial dimensions of transportation in supply chains, including regulation and public policy. Part II focuses on the providers of transportation, offering an industry overview, operating and service characteristics, cost structure, and current challenges and issues. Part III focuses on a variety of critical transportation management issues, providing insightful discussions of the strategic activities and challenges involved in the movement of goods through the supply chain.
Instructors love Numerical Methods for Engineers because it makes teaching easy! Students love it because it is written for them–with clear explanations and examples throughout. The text features a broad array of applications that span all engineering disciplines. The sixth edition retains the successful instructional techniques of earlier editions. Chapra and Canale’s unique approach opens each part of the text with sections called Motivation, Mathematical Background, and Orientation. This prepares the student for upcoming problems in a motivating and engaging manner. Each part closes with an Epilogue containing Trade-Offs, Important Relationships and Formulas, and Advanced Methods and Additional References. Much more than a summary, the Epilogue deepens understanding of what has been learned and provides a peek into more advanced methods. Helpful separate Appendices. “Getting Started with MATLAB” abd “Getting Started with Mathcad” which make excellent references. Numerous new or revised problems drawn from actual engineering practice, many of which are based on exciting new areas such as bioengineering. The expanded breadth of engineering disciplines covered is especially evident in the problems, which now cover such areas as biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Excellent new examples and case studies span asll areas of engineering disciplines; the students using this text will be able to apply their new skills to their chosen field. Users will find use of software packages, specifically MATLAB(R), Excel(R) with VBA and Mathcad(R). This includes material on developing MATLAB(R) m-files and VBA macros.
The third edition of this well-used textiles workbook closely matches the new Study Design. The focus of the workbook is on developing and refining key skills, through relevant and engaging activities. Students will buy one book or the other (Nelson Product Design and Technology VCE Units 1-4 Workbook: Wood, Metal, Plastics) and some of the pages are designed to be directly used as part of their folio. This workbook reinforces the student book material, and gives it practical application.
Appropriate for courses in Water Resources, Groundwater and Wastewater The new seventh edition of Water and Wastewater Technology continues its tradition of coverage water processing principles and modern management practices, but now integrates a new emphasis on sustainability throughout. Comprehensive coverage of topics such as: * Water processing * Water distribution * Wastewater collection * Conventional and advanced wastewater treatment * Sludge processing
