Statics and Mechanics of Materials in SI Units
For courses in introductory combined Statics and Mechanics of Materials courses found in ME, CE, AE, and Engineering Mechanics departments. Statics and Mechanics of Materials represents a combined abridged version of two of the author’s books, namely Engineering Mechanics: Statics, Fourteenth Edition and Mechanics of Materials, Tenth Edition with Statics and Mechanics of Materials represents a combined abridged version of two of the author’s books, namely Engineering Mechanics: Statics, Fourteenth Edition in SI Units and Mechanics of Materials, Tenth Edition in SI Units. It provides a clear and thorough presentation of both the theory and application of the important fundamental topics of these subjects that are often used in many engineering disciplines. The development emphasises the importance of satisfying equilibrium, compatibility of deformation, and material behavior requirements. The hallmark of the book, however, remains the same as the author’s unabridged versions, and that is, strong emphasis is placed on drawing a free-body diagram, and the importance of selecting an appropriate coordinate system and an associated sign convention whenever the equations of mechanics are applied. Throughout the book, many analysis and design applications are presented, which involve mechanical elements and structural members often encountered in engineering practice.
This highly interactive write-in workbook covers all the essential aspects of level 1 and 2. Welding & Fabrication theory including thorough QCF unit coverage of welding processes, metal fabrication & thermal cutting, as well as engineering materials & operations. Addressing all essential aspects of the qualification, this comprehensive resource is packed full of top quality 3D artwork, engaging tasks and activities and safe, sustainable practice, all of which aim to ensure that each learner fully understands all the fundamental theory required for their qualification. This interactive workbook can be used a stand-alone resource in the classroom or for personal study at home, or an accompaniment to the Welding & Fabrication e-learning programme for a complete blended learning experience.

The purpose of this third edition is to bring together in a single book descriptions of all tests carried out in the optical shop that are applicable to optical components and systems. This book is intended for the specialist as well as the non-specialist engaged in optical shop testing. There is currently a great deal of research being done in optical engineering. Making this new edition very timely.

Social work is the profession that claims to intervene to enhance people’s well-being. However, social workers have played a low-key role in environmental issues that increasingly impact on people’s well-being, both locally and globally.
This compelling new contribution confronts this topic head-on, examining environmental issues from a social work perspective. Lena Dominelli draws attention to the important voice of practitioners working on the ground in the aftermath of environmental disasters, whether these are caused by climate change, industrial accidents or human conflict. The author explores the concept of ‘green social work’ and its role in using environmental crises to address poverty and other forms of structural inequalities, to obtain more equitable allocations of limited natural resources and to tackle global socio-political forces that have a damaging impact upon the quality of life of poor and marginalized populations at local levels. The resolution of these matters is linked to community initiatives that social workers can engage in to ensure that the quality of life of poor people can be enhanced without costing the Earth.
This important book will appeal to those in the fields of social work, social policy, sociology and human geography. It powerfully reveals how environmental issues are an integral part of social work’s remit if it is to retain its currency in the modern world and emphasize its relevance to the social issues that societies have to resolve in the twenty-first century.
