Sustainable Communities Design Handbook: Green Engineering, Architecture, and Technology, Second Edition, brings together the major players responsible for sustainable development at both community and metropolitan scales. The book aims to explain and demonstrate the practice, planning, design, building and managing of the engineering, architectural and economic development of cities and communities to meet sustainable development objectives. Offering a holistic approach to creating sustainable communities, the book includes a 40 percent increase in new methods and technology over the last edition, and 50 percent more case studies from around the world to illustrate how common sustainability problems are solved. As the concept and practices of a sustainable built environment have evolved over the years, it is increasingly recognized that the scope should be expanded beyond individual buildings to the community scale. Written by an international team of engineers, architects, and environmental experts this second edition includes new HVAC technologies for heating and cooling, energy effect technologies for lighting, and new construction materials which improve heating and cooling efficiencies. This new edition will also include critical updates on international codes: LEED, BREEAM, and Green Globes. Explains the most cutting-edge green technologies and methods for use in built communities Provides a common approach in using natural resources when building and designing green communities Features coverage of green practices from architecture to construction Covers compliance with various international codes, methods and legal frameworks

CAMD or Computer Aided Molecular Design refers to the design of molecules with desirable properties. That is, through CAMD, one determines molecules that match a specified set of (target) properties. CAMD as a technique has a very large potential as in principle, all kinds of chemical, bio-chemical and material products can be designed through this technique. This book mainly deals with macroscopic properties and therefore does not cover molecular design of large, complex chemicals such as drugs. While books have been written on computer aided molecular design relating to drugs and large complex chemicals, a book on systematic formulation of CAMD problems and solutions, with emphasis on theory and practice, which helps one to learn, understand and apply the technique is currently unavailable. · This title brings together the theoretical aspects related to Computer Aided Molecular Design, the different techniques that have been developed and the different applications that have been reported. · Contributing authors are among the leading researchers and users of CAMD · First book available giving a systematic formulation of CAMD problems and solutions

This important monograph is the first comprehensive compendium of engineering models used in high-speed penetration mechanics.The book consists of two parts. The first part (more than a quarter of the book's content) is in fact a handbook giving a very detailed summary of the engineering models used for the analysis of high-speed penetration of rigid projectiles into various media (concrete, metals, geological media). The second part of the book demonstrates the possibilities and efficiency of using approximate models for investigating traditional and nontraditional problems of penetration mechanics.Different chapters in the books are devoted to different classes of problems and can be read independently. Each chapter is self-contained, which includes a comprehensive literature survey of the topic, and carries a list of used notations. The bibliography includes more than 700 references.This monograph is a reliable and indispensable reference guide for anyone interested in using engineering models in high-speed penetration mechanics.

This proceedings volume gathers selected papers presented at the Chinese Materials Conference 2017 (CMC2017), held in Yinchuan City, Ningxia, China, on July 06-12, 2017. This book covers a wide range of material surface science, advanced preparation and processing technologies of materials, high purity materials, silicon purification technology, solidification science and technology, performance and structure safety of petroleum tubular goods and equipment materials, materials genomes, materials simulation, computation and design. The Chinese Materials Conference (CMC) is the most important serial conference of the Chinese Materials Research Society (C-MRS) and has been held each year since the early 1990s. The 2017 installment included 37 Symposia covering four fields: Advances in energy and environmental materials; High performance structural materials; Fundamental research on materials; and Advanced functional materials. More than 5500 participants attended the congress, and the organizers received more than 700 technical papers. Based on the recommendations of symposium organizers and after peer reviewing, 490 papers have been included in the present proceedings, which showcase the latest original research results in the field of materials, achieved by more than 300 research groups at various universities and research institutes.
