Hierarchical Nanostructures for Energy Devices by Seung H Ko and Costas P Grigoropoulos
English | 2014 | ISBN: 1849736286 | 322 pages | PDF | 15 MB

Hierarchical Nanostructures for Energy Devices
Surface area has a directly relationship with the efficiency of energy devices. Hierarchical nanostructuring has the potential to greatly increase surface area, and their electrical properties are favourable, not only to energy generation and storage, but also energy-consuming electronic circuits.

This book provides systematic coverage of how nanostructured materials can be applied to energy devices, with an emphasis on the process of generation to storage and consumption. The fundamentals (including properties, characterisation and synthesis) are clearly presented across the first chapters of the book, providing readers new to the field with a clear overview of this expanding topic. The detailed discussion of applications will be an inspiration to those already well-versed in the field.

The editors have more than a decade of experience in working on all aspects of energy generation and storage – in academia, national laboratories and industry. The book presents a balanced view from all sectors and is presented in a format accessible by postgraduate students and professional researchers alike.

ERM – Enterprise Risk Management: Issues and Cases

FREEDownload : ERM – Enterprise Risk Management: Issues and Cases

ERM – Enterprise Risk Management: Issues and Cases by Jean-Paul Louisot and Christopher Ketcham
English | 2014 | ISBN: 1118539524 | pages | PDF | 8,6 MB

ERM – Enterprise Risk Management: Issues and Cases
A wealth of international case studies illustrating current issues and emerging best practices in enterprise risk management

Despite enterprise risk management's relative newness as a recognized business discipline, the marketplace is replete with guides and references for ERM practitioners. Yet, until now, few case studies illustrating ERM in action have appeared in the literature. One reason for this is that, until recently, there were many disparate, even conflicting definitions of what, exactly ERM is and, more importantly, how organizations can use it to utmost advantage. With efforts underway, internationally, to mandate ERM and to standardize ERM standards and practices, the need has never been greater for an authoritative resource offering risk management professionals authoritative coverage of the full array of contemporary ERM issues and challenges. Written by two recognized international thought leaders in the field, ERM-Enterprise Risk Management provides that and much more.

Packed with international cases studies illustrating ERM best practices applicable across all industry sectors and business models
Explores contemporary issues, including quantitative and qualitative measures, as well as potential pitfalls and challenges facing today's enterprise risk managers
Includes interviews with leading risk management theorists and practitioners, as well as risk managers from a variety of industries
An indispensable working resource for risk management practitioners everywhere and a valuable reference for researchers, providing the latest empirical evidence and an exhaustive bibliography

Sustainable Energy: Choosing Among Options

FREEDownload : Sustainable Energy: Choosing Among Options

Sustainable Energy: Choosing Among Options by Jefferson W. Tester, Elisabeth M. Drake, Michael J. Driscoll and Michael W. Golay
English | 2012 | ISBN: 0262017474 | ISBN-13: 9780262017473 | 1056 pages | PDF | 56,4 MB
Human survival depends on a continuing supply of energy, but the need for ever-increasing amounts of it poses a dilemma: How can we find energy sources that are sustainable and ways to convert and utilize energy that are more efficient?

Sustainable Energy: Choosing Among Options
This widely used textbook is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as others who have an interest in exploring energy resource options and technologies with a view toward achieving sustainability on local, national, and global scales. It clearly presents the tradeoffs and uncertainties inherent in evaluating and choosing sound energy portfolios and provides a framework for assessing policy solutions.

The second edition examines the broader aspects of energy use, including resource estimation, environmental effects, and economic evaluations; reviews the main energy sources of today and tomorrow, from fossil fuels and nuclear power to biomass, hydropower, and solar energy; treats energy carriers and energy storage, transmission, and distribution; addresses end-use patterns in the transportation, industrial, and building sectors; and considers synergistic complex systems. This new edition also offers updated statistical data and references; a new chapter on the complex interactions among energy, water, and land use; expanded coverage of renewable energy; and new color illustrations. Sustainable Energy addresses the challenges of making responsible energy choices for a more sustainable future.

Achieving Quality Software: Including Its Application to Safety-Related Systems

Achieving Quality Software: Including Its Application to Safety-Related Systems by D.J. Smith
English | October 4, 2013 (original 1995) | ISBN: 9401042438 | 287 Pages | PDF | 15 MB
The rapid growth in use of programmable technology, in nearly all sectors of Engineering, is a well-known established trend and one which there is every reason to believe will continue into the foreseeable future. The drivers of this trend include cost, flexibility, rich functionality and certain reliability and safety advantages. However, as explained in this book, these advantages have to be carefully weighed against a number of dis­ advantages which, amongst other things, have fundamental implications for reliability and safety. Ideally, a programmable system would be viewed as a fusion of hardware, software and user (or 'skinware'), operating under a set of environmental conditions.

Achieving Quality Software: Including Its Application to Safety-Related Systems
To date, such a unifying model does not exist and so hardware, software and human factors are still considered largely as three separate disciplines, albeit with certain interdependencies. Established techniques are available which enable the engineer to develop systems comprising purely hardware components to a prescribed reliability and performance. Software, however, is fundamentally different in a number of ways, and does not lend itself to equivalent analysis. A major problem with software is its poor 'visibility', and consequently the great difficulty in understanding and predicting its behaviour in all cir­ cumstances. This results in the ever-present software design flaws, or 'bugs', which have plagued the software industry from its beginnings.
