            Engineering Transition: Building a Sustainable Future examines new strategies emerging in response to the mega-issues of global climate change, decline in world oil supply, scarcity of key industrial minerals, and local environmental constraints. These issues pose challenges for ...organizations, businesses, and communities, and engineers will need to begin developing ideas and projects to implement the transition of engineered systems. This work presents a methodology for shifting away from unsustainable activities. Teaching the Transition Engineering approach and methodology is the focus of the text, and the concept is presented in a way that engineers can begin applying it in their work.

            This is a comprehensive textbook covering major aspects of switched reluctance motor drives in detail. It also provides a macroscopic view of the use of electric motors in different sectors to explore the role of SRM in industry. Utilizing higher efficiency, lower cost, and robus...t electric motors will increase the level of electrification in industry, improve overall system efficiency, and reduce the operational cost, the electricity consumption, and emissions. This is where switched reluctance machine (SRM) can play a significant role. One of the main advantages of SRM is its low-cost and simple construction, which can provide reliable operation in a harsh environment.

            Computers are the foundation of the information age, but communication technology is the foundation of the foundation. Without the theories and practical applications of theory brought to us by the pioneers of communication, the computer age would perhaps have remained in the bac...k office, hidden away as infrastructure like electricity or running water ~ critical to modern life, but not as transforming as the combination of communications and computing. The information age exploded, once machines were endowed with the ability to talk among themselves. The Signal connects everything to everything else, in both communication, and in the metaphorical sense as the link between and among people.

            Synthesis Green Metrics: Problems, Exercises, and Solutions

            Synthesis Green Metrics: Problems, Exercises, and Solutions (Hardback)

            By Andraos, John

            Green chemistry promotes improved syntheses as an intellectual endeavour that can have a great impact both on preserving and utilizing our planet's finite resources and the quality of human life. This masterful accomplishment provides an evaluation of environmental impact metrics... according to life cycle assessment analysis based on the Mackay compartment environmental model and Guinee environmental impact potentials formalism. Assumptions, limitations, and dealing with missing data are addressed. Best literature resources for finding key toxicological parameters are provided and applied to individual reactions as well as entire synthesis plans, in order to target molecules of interest.
