Genre: Technology & Engineering

Questions about the Earth continue to haunt engineers. For instance: What do we know about our ancient planet? How should we be using it? And what are the best technologies and strategies to sustain us? Earth Engineering provides the background necessary to analyze these questions as well as perspectives, principles, and practices to guide your understanding of geoengineering problems. Scientists, engineers, regulators, designers, constructors, educators and students will find this book especially useful when considering challenges tied to civil engineering, construction, and mining. Written in simple language, this reference guide covers many areas, including • how the Earth began and developed over 4.6 billion years ago; • • how the Earth began and developed over 4.6 billion years ago; • how to use site investigations to mitigate planning omissions and design errors; • how to cope with variable subsurface strata and building challenges; • how to approach geologic uncertainty and analyze problems on varying terraine; • how to handle environmental regulations and legal considerations. You will treasure this broad collection and overview of geoengineering perspectives, principles, and practices. Enhance your knowledge and troubleshoot common problems with the knowledge, tools, and strategies you will fi nd in the extensive repertoire of topics and concise illustrations in Earth Engineering.

The CRC Handbook of Mechanical Engineering Second Edition

Author: Frank Kreith
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 084939418X
Release Date: 1998-03-24
Genre: Technology & Engineering

During the past 20 years, the field of mechanical engineering has undergone enormous changes. These changes have been driven by many factors, including: the development of computer technology worldwide competition in industry improvements in the flow of information satellite communication real time monitoring increased energy efficiency robotics automatic control increased sensitivity to environmental impacts of human activities advances in design and manufacturing methods These developments have put more stress on mechanical engineering education, making it increasingly difficult to cover all the topics that a professional engineer will need in his or her career. As a result of these developments, there has been a growing need for a handbook that can serve the professional community by providing relevant background and current information in the field of mechanical engineering. The CRC Handbook of Mechanical Engineering serves the needs of the professional engineer as a resource of information into the next century.

Numerical Methods for Engineers

Author: Steven C. Chapra
Publisher:
ISBN: 9814670871
Release Date: 2016-03
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Numerical Methods for Engineers retains the instructional techniques that have made the text so successful. Chapra and Canale's unique approach opens each part of the text with sections called "Motivation" "Mathematical Background" and "Orientation". Each part closes with an "Epilogue" containing "Trade-Offs" "Important Relationships and Formulas" and "Advanced Methods and Additional References". Much more than a summary the Epilogue deepens understanding of what has been learned and provides a peek into more advanced methods. Numerous new or revised problems are drawn from actual engineering practice. The expanded breadth of engineering disciplines covered is especially evident in these exercises which now cover such areas as biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Excellent new examples and case studies span all areas of engineering giving students a broad exposure to various fields in engineering.McGraw-Hill Education's Connect is also available as an optional add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need when they need it how they need it so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework quizzes and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student's work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a "multi-step solution" which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty.

Theoretische Bodenmechanik

Release Date: 2013-03-13
Genre: Technology & Engineering

2 nung der durch Änderungen in der Belastung und in den Entwässe rungsbedingungen verursachten Wirkungen meist nur sehr gering sind. Diese Feststellung gilt im besonderen Maße für alle jene Auf gaben, die sich mit der Wirkung des strömenden Wasser befassen, weil hier untergeordnete Abweichungen in der Schichtung, die durch Probebohrungen nicht aufgeschlossen werden, von großem Einfluß sein können. Aus diesem Grunde unterscheidet sich die Anwendung der theoretischen Bodenmechanik auf den Erd- und Grundbau ganz wesentlich von der Anwendung der technischen Mechanik auf den Stahl-, Holz- und Massivbau. Die elastischen Größen der Baustoffe Stahl oder Stahlbeton sind nur wenig veränderlich, und die Gesetze der angewandten Mechanik können für die praktische Anwendung ohne Einschränkung übertragen werden. Demgegenüber stellen die theoretischen Untersuchungen in der Bodenmechanik nur Arbeits hypothesen dar, weil unsere Kenntnisse über die mittleren physikalischen Eigenschaften des Untergrundes und über den Verlauf der einzelnen Schichtgrenzen stets unvollkommen und sogar oft äußerst unzuläng lich sind. Vom praktischen Standpunkt aus gesehen, sind die in der Bodenmechanik entwickelten Arbeitshypothesen jedoch ebenso an wendbar wie die theoretische Festigkeitslehre auf andere Zweige des Bauingenieurwesens. Wenn der Ingenieur sich der in den grundlegen den Annahmen enthaltenen Unsicherheiten bewußt ist, dann ist er auch imstande, die Art und die Bedeutung der Unterschiede zu er kennen, die zwischen der Wirklichkeit und seiner Vorstellung über die Bodenverhältnisse bestehen.
