Philosophy Of Science In Practice

This volume reflects the ‘philosophy of science in practice’ approach and takes a fresh look at traditional philosophical problems in the context of natural, social, and health research. Inspired by the work of Nancy Cartwright that shows how the practices and apparatuses of science help us to understand science and to build theories in the philosophy of science, this volume critically examines the philosophical concepts of evidence, laws, causation, and models and their roles in the process of scientific reasoning. Each chapter is an important one in the philosophy of science, while the volume as a whole deals with these philosophical concepts in a unified way in the context of actual scientific practice. This volume thus aims to contribute to this new direction in the philosophy of science.​

Ecohealth Research In Practice

Author : Dominique F. Charron

This book is about doing innovative research to achieve sustainable and equitable change in people’s health and well-being through improved interactions with the environment. It presents experiences from the field of ecosystem approaches to health (or ecohealth research) and some insights and lessons learned. It builds on previous literature, notably Forget (1997), Forget and Lebel (2001), Lebel (2003), and Waltner-Toews et al. (2008). Through case-studies and other contributions by researchers supported by Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), the book presents evidence of real changes in conditions of people, their health, and the ecosystems that support them. These changes were derived from applications of an ecosystem approach to health in developing regions of the world. The book also illustrates the resulting body of applied, participatory, and action research that improved health and environmental management in developing countries and, in many cases, influenced policies and practices.

The Internal Combustion Engine In Theory And Practice Combustion Fuels Materials Design

This revised edition of Taylor's classic work on the internal-combustion engineincorporates changes and additions in engine design and control that have been brought on by theworld petroleum crisis, the subsequent emphasis on fuel economy, and the legal restraints on airpollution.The fundamentals and the topical organization, however, remain the same. The analyticrather than merely descriptive treatment of actual engine cycles, the exhaustive studies of aircapacity, heat flow, friction, and the effects of cylinder size, and the emphasis on applicationhave been preserved. These are the basic qualities that have made Taylor's work indispensable tomore than one generation of engineers and designers of internal-combustion engines, as well as toteachers and graduate students in the fields of power, internal-combustion engineering, and generalmachine design.Charles Fayette Taylor is Professor of Automotive Engineering Emeritus at MIT. Hedirected the Sloan Automotive Laboratories at MIT from 1926 to 1960

Insect Populations In Theory And In Practice

Entomologists have played a leading role in developing a theoretical basis to Population Ecology, but we still do not have adequate experimental and observational proof for many of the theoretical ideas that have been proposed. As a result, the subject has been beset with arguments for more than 50 years. This volume attempts to reconcile some of these controversies, while also reviewing the current state of our knowledge. The editors have drawn together an international list of contributors whose views reflect a range of opinions on how natural populations are stabilised. They have succeeded in producing a book that both covers the main alternative views in population theory and contains some of the best recent field studies of insect populations. This Royal Entomological Society Symposium volume will be of great interest to all entomologists and ecologists, particularly those who wish to know more about Population Dynamics.

The Theory And Practice Of Hydrodynamics And Vibration

Author : Chakrabarti Subrata Kumar
ISBN : 9789813102460
Genre : Technology & Engineering
File Size : 28.66 MB

This book covers the basics of the hydrodynamics and vibration of structures subjected to environmental loads. It describes the interaction of hydrodynamics with the associated vibration of structures, giving simple explanations. Emphasis is placed on the applications of the theory to practical problems. Several case studies are provided to show how the theory outlined in the book is applied in the design of structures. Background material needed for understanding fluid-induced vibrations of structures is given to make the book reasonably self-sufficient. Examples are taken mainly from the novel structures that are of interest today, including ocean and offshore structures and components.Besides being a text for undergraduates, this book can serve as a handy reference for design engineers and consultants involved in the design of structures subjected to dynamics and vibration.
