A First Course in Differential Equations, Modeling, and Simulation Carlos A. Smith and Scott W. Campbell University of South Florida, Tampa, USA

Emphasizing a practical approach for engineers and scientists, this text avoids overly theoretical explanations and shows readers how differential equations are derived by applying basic physical principles and experimental observations to engineering systems. This resource also covers classical methods for obtaining the analytical solution of differential equations and Laplace transforms. In addition, the authors discuss how these equations describe mathematical systems and how to use software to solve sets of equations in which analytical solutions cannot be determined. Numerical values are provided in all examples and problems. Catalog no. K12318, May 2011, 345 pp. ISBN: 978-1-4398-5087-9, $89.95 / £57.99

Intelligent Energy Field Manufacturing Interdisciplinary Process Innovations Edited by

Wenwu Zhang GE Global Research Center, Schenectady, New York, USA

An in-depth introduction to Intelligent Energy Field Manufacturing (EFM), this book explores a fresh engineering methodology that integrates and goes beyond methodologies such as Design for Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing, Concurrent Engineering, selfassembly, biometics, and more. It discusses dynamic M-PIE flows, the generalities of energy fields, logic functional materials and intelligence, the open scheme of intelligent EFM implementation, and the principles of intelligent EFM. The book takes a highly interdisciplinary approach that includes research frontiers such as micro/nano fabrication, high strain rate processes, and laser shock forming.

Fires, Explosions, and Toxic Gas Dispersions Effects Calculation and Risk Analysis Marc J. Assael and Konstantinos E. Kakosimos Aristotle University, Thessaloniki, Greece

This volume provides an overview of the methods used to assess the risk of fires, explosions, and toxic gas dispersion and to deduce the subsequent effects and consequences of these events. The authors cover various aspects of such incidents, including the probability that an accident will occur, and they describe how to calculate leaks, heat flux, overpressure, and the concentration of toxic clouds. The book examines the consequences to people (injury or death) and material damages, and it concludes with a discussion of possible causes of destruction and common circumstances that can result in accidents.

Albright's Chemical Engineering Handbook

Third Edition

Edited by

Thomas J. Bruno and Paris D.N. Svoronos

Lyle Albright Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, USA

Praise for the previous edition: “… another excellent work from CRC Press. Unlike other reference tables, these are very easy to use. …This handbook will become a standard in the libraries of academics and industrial researchers alike. Summing Up: Highly recommended.” — CHOICE

The information researchers need for chemical analysis is often scattered throughout different sources, making it difficult to access. This volume is a one-stop reference that compiles updated data in a handy format. This edition has been expanded to include data from the CRC Handbook of Fundamental Spectroscopic Correlation Charts, in addition to information on chromatography, nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry, infrared spectrophotometry, mass spectrometry, and other topics.

From fundamentals to plant operations, this handbook is a thorough yet succinct guide to day-today methods and calculations used in chemical engineering applications. Using illustrative case examples, it discusses essential principles, calculations, and key issues such as reaction engineering, process control and design, waste disposal, and electrochemical and biochemical engineering. The final chapters cover patents, intellectual property, communications, and ethical issues that are most relevant to engineers. Features

Technology of Reinvention

• Provides reliable sources of data and modeling methods for the extrapolation, estimation, or measurement of data • Defines essential concepts in mathematics, chemistry, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and heat/mass transfer • Describes industrial processes and technologies such as mixing, separations, distillation, stripping, and drying • Discusses aspects of process control, materials selection, process design and improvements, and trouble shooting • Examines issues, regulations, and resources for environmental engineering and waste management • Covers copyright, communication, and ethical considerations
