Conservation and Sustainable Development Edited by

Richard Malloy, John Brock, Anthony Floyd, Margaret Livingston, and Robert H. Webb

Supplementary Cementing Materials in Concrete Michael Thomas

The modern southwestern cities of Phoenix, Tucson, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, and El Paso occupy lands that once supported rich desert ecosystems. Typical development patterns in these cities often resulted in scraping these desert lands of the ancient living landscape to be replaced with one that is human-made and dependent on a large consumption of energy and natural resources. This book explains the natural and built environment of the Southwestern U.S. and discusses the growth and the development tools for shaping the future of the region.

This book provides detailed information on the use of supplementary cementing materials (SCM), such as fly ash, slag, silica fume, and natural pozzolans, in concrete. It presents the provenance of these materials and their chemical, physical, and mineralogical properties. By providing an understanding of the chemical reactions involving these materials and the resulting changes in the microstructure of the concrete, the book explains how SCMs influence the mechanical properties of concrete and can improve its durability in aggressive environments.

This work presents nonparametric statistical methods for functional regression analysis, specifically the methods based on a Gaussian process prior in a functional space. The authors discuss functional data analysis, theoretical aspects based on the asymptotic properties of Gaussian process regression models, and methodological developments for high dimensional data and variable selection. They also explore novel nonparametric statistical methods for curve prediction, curve clustering, functional ANOVA, and functional regression analysis of batch data, repeated curves, and non-Gaussian data.

Closely related to nonparametric methods, robust statistical methods are not unduly affected by data outliers or other small departures from model assumptions. This book presents a comprehensive overview of methodology for robust and nonparametric statistics. It covers both methods in parallel to demonstrate their relative strengths and weaknesses. Using examples to illustrate the methods, the text emphasizes applications in the fields of biomedical science, bioinformatics, finance, and engineering. The authors provide exercises in the text.

Essentials of Heat and Fluid Flow in Porous Media

Chapman & Hall/CRC Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing Series

Arunn Narasimhan Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras Chennai

Exploring new variations of classical methods as well as recent approaches, this book demonstrates the extensive use of numerical techniques and mathematical models in fluid mechanics. It covers finite volume, finite difference, finite element, spectral, smoothed particle hydrodynamics, mixed-element-volume, and free surface flow methods, along with many applications. The contributors show how the SPH-ALE method properly represents highly distorted interfaces and dynamic flows. They also describe the solution of complex flow problems via direct numerical simulation, Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations, and large eddy simulation.

Knowledge of heat and fluid flow through porous media finds extensive applications in several engineering devices spanning across three major divisions: mechanical, civil, and chemical engineering. Recent ramifications include bioengineering and bio-technology. This graduate-level textbook introduces the essential concepts that govern heat and fluid flow through porous media. The textbook fills the knowledge gap between the available research monographs concerning transport in porous media and the basic thermo-fluids courses one is required to master as a prerequisite for approaching such monographs.

This book concentrates on both understanding and development of nanocrystalline materials. The original relation that connects grain size and strength, known as the Hall-Petch relation, is studied in the nanometer grain size region. The breakdown of such a relation is a challenge. Why and how to overcome it? Is the dislocation mechanism still operating when the grain size is very small, approaching the amorphous limit? How do we go from the microstructure information to the continuum description of the mechanical properties?

This book investigates the behavior of light (light pulse) within a micro- and nanoscale device (ring resonator), which can be integrated to form the device, circuits, and systems that can be used for atom/molecule trapping and transportation, optical transistors, fast calculation devices (optical gate), nanoscale communication and networks, energy storage, and more. It discusses nano device design and simulation that can be useful for practice in the near future.
