Chinese Wildlife (Bradt Travel Guide Chinese Wildlife) by Martin Walters
English | June 3, 2008 | ISBN: 1841622206 | 208 Pages | PDF | 40 MB
China is home to a variety of remarkable variety of unusual wildlife, many of which are rare and threatened species under conservation. This new wildlife guide provides a colorful introduction to the species of a country that is beginning to emerge as a fascinating destination for wildlife enthusiasts.

Chinese Wildlife
Visitors can discover a range of habitats: the huge deserts of the northwest and the Tibetan Plateau, forested mountain slopes and the rivers, lakes and steamy tropical forests of the deep south. Interesting features on medicinal plants, rare cranes and, of course, the giant panda supplement animal and habitat listings.
Accessible and beautifully illustrated, will appeal both to the first-time visitor and the serious naturalist seeking a compact volume. And after the trip it will also make a great souvenir.

Advanced Unsaturated Soil Mechanics and Engineering

FREEDownload : Advanced Unsaturated Soil Mechanics and Engineering

Advanced Unsaturated Soil Mechanics and Engineering by Charles W. W. Ng
English | Dec 7, 2007 | ISBN: 0415436796 | 712 Pages | PDF | 8 MB
Analytical and comprehensive, this state-of-the-art book, examines the mechanics and engineering of unsaturated soils, as well as explaining the laboratory and field testing and research that are the logical basis of this modern approach to safe construction in these hazardous geomaterials; putting them into a logical framework for civil engineering and design.

Advanced Unsaturated Soil Mechanics and Engineering
The book:

illustrates the importance of state-dependent soil-water characteristic curves
highlights modern soil testing of unsaturated soil behaviour, including accurate measurement of total volume changes and the measurement of anisotropic soil stiffness at very small strains
introduces an advanced state-dependent elasto-plastic constitutive model for both saturated and unsaturated soil
demonstrates the power of numerical analysis which is at the heart of modern soil mechanics
studies and simulates the behaviour of loose fills from unsaturated to saturated states; explains the difference between strain-softening and static liquefaction, and describes real applications in unsaturated soil slope engineering
includes purpose-designed field trials to capture the effects of two independent stress variables, and reports comprehensive measurements of soil suction, water contents, stress changes and ground deformations in both bare and grassed slopes
introduces a new conjunctive surface and subsurface transient flow model for realistically analysing rainfall infiltration in unsaturated soil slopes, and illustrates the importance of the flow model in slope engineering.
Including constitutive and numerical modelling, this volume will interest students and professionals studying or working in the areas of geotechnical engineering and the built environment.

Ingenium: Five Machines That Changed the World

Mark Denny, "Ingenium: Five Machines That Changed the World"
English | 2007 | ISBN-10: 0801885868 | PDF | 200 pages | 3 MB
This book clearly demonstrates the relevance of Classical Mechanics in understanding how complicated machines work. It would provide a good supplement to disillusioned first year undergraduates fed up of applying mechanics to the usual artificial situations covered in most mechanics text books of particles sliding down slopes or simple pendulums.

The solutions to the problems that Dr Denny provides are ingenious and provide genuine insight into how the various machines work. I would reccomend this book to anyone wanting to gain insight into how the complicated behavior of mechanical systems can be reduced to a few basic principles. The historical context is also interesting and a dry sense of humour pervades the book.
