Tackling Turbulent Flows in Engineering

FREEDownload : Tackling Turbulent Flows in Engineering

Anupam Dewan, "Tackling Turbulent Flows in Engineering"
2011 | pages: 138 | ISBN: 3642147666 | PDF | 1,3 mb

Tackling Turbulent Flows in Engineering
The emphasis of this book is on engineering aspects of fluid turbulence. The book explains for example how to tackle turbulence in industrial applications. It is useful to several disciplines, such as, mechanical, civil, chemical, aerospace engineers and also to professors, researchers, beginners, under graduates and post graduates. The following issues are emphasized in the book: – Modeling and computations of engineering flows: The author discusses in detail the quantities of interest for engineering turbulent flows and how to select an appropriate turbulence model; Also, a treatment of the selection of appropriate boundary conditions for the CFD simulations is given. – Modeling of turbulent convective heat transfer: This is encountered in several practical situations. It basically needs discussion on issues of treatment of walls and turbulent heat fluxes. – Modeling of buoyancy driven flows, for example, smoke issuing from chimney, pollutant discharge into water bodies, etc

2008 | ISBN-10: 0470058463 | 350 pages | PDF | 16 MB

Smart Technologies for Safety Engineering
Smart technologies comprise a dynamic new interdisciplinary research field that encompasses a wide spectrum of engineering applications including, but not limited to, intelligent structures and materials, actuators, sensors and structural observability, control systems and software tools for the design of adaptive structures. Smart technologies focus on the issues surrounding the safety and integrity of engineering systems. presents the achievements of ten years of research from the Smart-Tech Centre applied to some of the key issues of safety engineering. Results presented include: Original methods and software tools for modelling, design, simulation and control of adaptive structures and applicability of the adaptive concept to the design of structures for extreme loads; Application of the smart-tech concept to hot research topics and emerging engineering issues including health monitoring of structures and engineering systems, monitoring of loading conditions, automatic structural adaptation to unpredictable, randomly changing dynamic conditions and the optimal design of adaptive structures and engineering systems; Numerically efficient and original software packages that can be used for the design of adaptive, as well as passive (without control devices) structures. The Virtual Distortion Method, which has been developed especially for fast reanalysis of structures and systems and exact sensitivity analysis, allowing for effective modelling, design, health monitoring and control of smart engineering systems. The original research and practical applications in will appeal to a broad spectrum of engineers, researchers, professors and graduate students involved in the research, design and development of widely understood adaptronics and mechatronics, including smart structures and materials, adaptive impact absorption, health and load monitoring, vibration control, vibroacoustics and related issues.

Youth Strength Training, 2nd edition

FREEDownload : Youth Strength Training, 2nd edition

Youth Strength Training, 2nd edition By Avery Faigenbaum, Wayne Westcott
2009 | 256 Pages | ISBN: 0736067922 | PDF | 20 MB

Youth Strength Training, 2nd edition
The research is clear: children as young as seven can gain significant benefits for health, fitness and sport participation through a sound, scientifically-based strength-training program. Authors Avery Faigenbaum and Wayne Westcott are recognized as leading authorities on fitness and in this book they use their extensive experience as teachers, professors, researchers, athletes and coaches to provide readers with the most effective and safe programs possible. Crucially, this book is designed and written specifically for young people; it's not just another watered-down adult title. While the first edition focused on the safety and efficacy of youth strength training, this new edition evidences the authors' new research for designing more efficient, enjoyable, productive and practical programs of strength exercise for young people of different ages and abilities. Today, one out of three children are challenged by excessive body fat and these boys and girls are poorly suited for endurance-type exercise which they are typically asked to perform and which they are typically avoid at all costs. Fortunately, "Youth Strength Training" provides a myriad of resistance exercises which they tend to enjoy more, most likely because they compare more favorably with their lighter peers and the training effects are highly reinforcing (looking better, feeling better, functioning better).

Architect?: A Candid Guide to the Profession

FREEDownload : Architect?: A Candid Guide to the Profession

Architect?: A Candid Guide to the Profession by Roger K. Lewis
2013 | ISBN: 0262518848 | English | 248 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Architect?: A Candid Guide to the Profession
Since 1985, Architect? has been an essential text for aspiring architects, offering the best basic guide to the profession available. This third edition has been substantially revised and rewritten, with new material covering the latest developments in architectural and construction technologies, digital methodologies, new areas of focus in teaching and practice, evolving aesthetic philosophies, sustainability and green architecture, and alternatives to traditional practice.

Architect? tells the inside story of architectural education and practice; it is realistic, unvarnished, and insightful. Chapter 1 asks "Why Be an Architect?" and chapter 2 offers reasons "Why Not to Be an Architect." After this provocative beginning, Architect? goes on to explain and critique architectural education, covering admission, degree and curriculum types, and workload as well as such post-degree options as internship, teaching, and work in related fields. It offers a detailed discussion of professors and practitioners and the "-isms" and "-ologies" most prevalent in teaching and practicing architecture. It explains how an architect works and gets work, and describes architectural services from initial client contact to construction oversight. The new edition also includes a generous selection of drawings and cartoons from the author's Washington Post column, "Shaping the City," offering teachable moments wittily in graphic form.

The author, Roger Lewis, has taught, practiced, and written extensively about architecture for many years. In Architect? he explains — for students, professors, practitioners, and even prospective clients — how architects think and work and what they care about as they strive to make the built environment commodious, beautiful, and sustainable.
