            This book outlines the process of sustainable product design and development. Design guidelines that contribute to prolonging the life of a product and minimizing its environmental impact are presented. Specifically, these guidelines enable product design for particular end of li...fe (EOL) objectives such as reuse, recycling and remanufacturing. The book also presents mathematical models that would help the designer determine the cost of designing sustainable products. This cost can be computed early during the design stage of a product. The book presents different ways and means by which a product can address all three pillars of sustainability, i.e.: environmental conservation, social sustainability and economic sustainability. Various case studies are incorporated in different chapters as deemed appropriate. Case studies on designing products for assembly, disassembly and remanufacturing have been presented in respective chapters. The book also provides an overview of global environmental legislations to help the reader grasp the importance of waste management and sustainable product design. This book will be of interest to professionals, engineering students, environmental scientists and those in the business environment.

            This two-volume book is a comprehensive guide to designing, conducting and interpreting experiments in a broad range of topics associated with hydraulic engineering. It is the first substantial effort in hydraulic engineering to assemble in one place descriptions of all the compo...nents of experimentation along with a concise outline of essential theory to highlight the intrinsic connection between analytical and experimental research and illustrate the need for their complementary use. Providing end-to-end guidance to support experimentalists is long overdue, as most of the information can only be found in scientific papers or specialized monographs on laboratory and fieldwork practice. The book was prepared for college faculty, researchers, practitioners, and students involved in hydraulics experiments. Written by a team of more than 45 authors well-experienced in hydraulics experimentation, the book takes into account experiments performed under a range of conditions, including well-equipped and -staffed laboratories, and laboratories lacking aspects of advanced instrumentation and expertise. The book could serve as a textbook on hydraulics experiments. Its style is intentionally concise and makes frequent use of convenient summaries, tables and figures to present information. The writers provide specific guidance on methods and instruments currently used in hydraulics experiments, and emphasizes new and emerging measurement technologies and analysis methods. Extensive references enable interested readers to further explore details on each topic. Although the book focuses primarily on laboratory experiments, including hydraulic modelling, it also applies to fieldwork of varying complexity and accessibility.

            Lithium-ion batteries are the most promising among the secondary battery technologies, for providing high energy and high power required by hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) and electric vehicles (EV). Lithium-ion batteries consists of conventional graphite or lithium titanate as an...ode and lithium transition metal-oxides as cathode. A lithium salt dissolved in an aprotic solvent such as ethylene carbonate and diethylene carbonate is used as electrolyte. This rechargeable battery operates based on the principle of electrochemical lithium insertion/re-insertion or intercalation/de-intercalation during charging/discharging of the battery. It is essential that both electrodes have layered structure which should accept and release the lithium-ion. In advanced lithium-ion battery technologies, other than layered anodes are also considered. High cell voltage, high capacity as well as energy density, high Columbic efficiency, long cycle life, and convenient to fabricate any size or shape of the battery, are the vital features of this battery technology. Lithium-ion batteries are already being used widely in most of the consumer electronics such mobile phones, laptops, PDAs etc. and are in early stages in its application in HEV and EV, which will have far and wide implications and benefits to society. The book contains ten chapters, each focusing on a specific topic pertaining to the application of lithium-ion batteries in Electric Vehicles. Basic principles, electrode materials, electrolytes, high voltage cathodes, recycling spent Li-ion batteries and battery charge controller are addressed. This book is unique among the countable books focusing on the lithium-ion battery technologies for vehicular applications. It provides fundamentals and practical knowledge on the lithium-ion battery for vehicular application. Students, scholars, academicians, and battery and automobile industries will find this volume useful.
