Demand for fuel cell technology is growing rapidly. Fuel cells are being commercialized to provide power to buildings like hospitals and schools, to replace batteries in portable electronic devices, and as replacements for internal combustion engines in vehicles. PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) fuel cells are lighter, smaller, and more efficient than other types of fuel cell. As a result, over 80% of fuel cells being produced today are PEM cells. This new edition of Dr. Barbir’s groundbreaking book still lays the groundwork for engineers, technicians and students better than any other resource, covering fundamentals of design, electrochemistry, heat and mass transport, as well as providing the context of system design and applications. Yet it now also provides invaluable information on the latest advances in modeling, diagnostics, materials, and components, along with an updated chapter on the evolving applications areas wherein PEM cells are being deployed. Comprehensive guide covers all aspects of PEM fuel cells, from theory and fundamentals to practical applications Provides solutions to heat and water management problems engineers must face when designing and implementing PEM fuel cells in systems Hundreds of original illustrations, real-life engineering examples, and end-of-chapter problems help clarify, contextualize, and aid understanding

A fuel cell is an electrochemical device that converts the chemical energy of a reaction (between fuel and oxidant) directly into electricity. Given their efficiency and low emissions, fuel cells provide an important alternative to power produced from fossil fuels. A major challenge in their use is the need for better materials to make fuel cells cost-effective and more durable. This important book reviews developments in materials to fulfil the potential of fuel cells as a major power source. After introductory chapters on the key issues in fuel cell materials research, the book reviews the major types of fuel cell. These include alkaline fuel cells, polymer electrolyte fuel cells, direct methanol fuel cells, phosphoric acid fuel cells, molten carbonate fuel cells, solid oxide fuel cells and regenerative fuel cells. The book concludes with reviews of novel fuel cell materials, ways of analysing performance and issues affecting recyclability and life cycle assessment. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Materials for fuel cells is a valuable reference for all those researching, manufacturing and using fuel cells in such areas as automotive engineering. Examines the key issues in fuel cell materials research Reviews the major types of fuel cells such as direct methanol and regenerative fuel cells Further chapters explore ways of analysing performance and issues affecting recyclability and life cycle assessment

Smart clothes and wearable technology is a relatively novel and emerging area of interdisciplinary research within the fashion, textile, electronics and related industries. This book provides a comprehensive review of the end-user’s requirements and the technologies and materials available for the design and production of smart clothing. Part one looks at the design of smart clothing and wearable technology including the emergence of wearable computing, end-user requirements, and the design process from fibre selection to product launch. Part two examines the general requirements for merging of a range of textile structures with technology and communications for wearable technologies. Part three reviews the types of production technologies available for the development of smart clothing, including garment construction and fabric joining, and the final part discusses the application of these new technologies in smart clothing products and their presentation to consumers. Smart clothes and wearable technology is a unique and essential reference source for researchers, designers and engineers developing textiles and clothing products in this cross-disciplinary area. It is also beneficial for those in the healthcare industry and academics researching textiles, fashion and design. Examines this emerging area of textile research including a brief history and industry overview Assesses the technologies and materials available for the design and production of smart clothing Summarises requirements for smart textiles from both health and performance perspectives

Wilhelm Ostwald: Lebenslinien. Eine Selbstbiographie Erstdruck: Berlin (Klasing) 1926/1927. Vollständige Neuausgabe. Herausgegeben von Karl-Maria Guth. Berlin 2013. Textgrundlage ist die Ausgabe: Ostwald, Wilhelm: Lebenslinien. Eine Selbstbiographie, 3 Teile, Berlin: Klasing, 1926/1927. Die Paginierung obiger Ausgabe wird in dieser Neuausgabe als Marginalie zeilengenau mitgeführt. Umschlaggestaltung von Thomas Schultz-Overhage unter Verwendung des Bildes: Wilhelm Ostwald (1903). Gesetzt aus Minion Pro, 11 pt. Über den Autor: Neben dessen Gründer Ernst Haeckel war der Freimaurer und Chemie-Nobelpreisträger Wilhelm Ostwald einer der führenden Köpfe des Deutschen Monistenbundes, der eine wissenschaftlich begründbare Weltanschauung nach dem Prinzip der Einheit von Natur und Geist vertrat und dabei christlicher Dogmatik widersprach. Er schlug unter dem Namen »Weltdeutsch« ein vereinfachtes Deutsch als internationale Plansprache vor und setzte sich für ein Weltgeld ein. Nach Differenzen mit der Universität Leipzig legte er seinen Lehrstuhl nieder und lebte als Privatforscher bis zu seinem Lebensende 1932 auf seinem Landsitz in Großbothen.

Diese Publikation erforscht und analysiert eine ganz besondere Form von Design: das ebenso normale wie wunderbare Phänomen, dass Menschen ohne Designanspruch bereits gestaltete Dinge umnutzen, anders nutzen, im besten Sinne "missbrauchen". Nicht Intentionales Design (NID) findet täglich, in jeder Lebenssphäre, in allen Teilen der Welt statt. Diese Umgestaltung durch Umnutzung macht die Dinge multifunktional, kombiniert mit kluger Erfindung neue Funktionen. Sie ist häufig reversibel, ressourcenschonend, improvisierend, innovativ, preiswert. Für das Design kann es zu einer Quelle der Inspiration werden, wenn die professionellen Designer erst einmal wahrnehmen, was im praktischen Gebrauch mit all den gestalteten Dingen tatsächlich geschieht.
