Fundamental of Nuclear Engineering is derived from over 25 years of teaching undergraduate and graduate courses on nuclear engineering. The material has been extensively class tested and provides the most comprehensive textbook and reference on the fundamentals of nuclear engineering. It includes a broad range of important areas in the nuclear engineering field; nuclear and atomic theory; nuclear reactor physics, design, control/dynamics, safety and thermal-hydraulics; nuclear fuel engineering; and health physics/radiation protection. It also includes the latest information that is missing in traditional texts, such as space radiation. The aim of the book is to provide a source for upper level undergraduate and graduate students studying nuclear engineering. BRENT J. LEWIS, Royal Military College of Canada E. NIHAN ONDER, Canadian Nuclear Laboratories ANDREW A. PRUDIL, Canadian Nuclear Laboratories

Materials Kinetics Fundamentals
98,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Introductory kinetics for the undergrad materials scientist Materials Kinetics Fundamentals is an accessible and interesting introduction to kinetics processes, with a focus on materials systems. Designed for the undergraduate student, this book avoids intense mathematics to present the theory and application of kinetics in a clear, reader-friendly way. Students are first introduced to the fundamental concepts of kinetics, with illustrated diagrams, examples, text boxes, and homework questions that impart a unified, intuitive understanding. Further chapters cover the application of these concepts in the context of materials science, with real-world examples including silicon processing and integrated circuit fabrication, thin-film deposition, carbon-14 dating, steel degassing, energy conversion, and more. Instructor materials including PowerPoint presentations, a test bank, and more are available through the companion website, providing a complete resource for the undergraduate materials science student. At its core, kinetics deals with rates, telling us how fast something will take place – for example, how fast water will evaporate, or how fast molten silicon will solidify. This book is designed to provide students with an introduction to kinetics underlying principles, without rigorous math to distract from understanding. Understand universally important kinetic concepts like diffusion and reaction rate Model common kinetic processes both quantitatively and qualitatively Learn the mechanisms behind important and interesting materials systems Examine the behaviors, properties, and interactions of relevant solid materials There are a large number of books on chemical kinetics, but there are far fewer that focus on materials kinetics, and virtually none that provide an accessible, introductory-level treatment of the subject. Materials Kinetics Fundamentals fills that need, with clear, detailed explanations of these universal concepts. RYAN O'HAYRE; Ph.D., is Professor of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines, where he directs the Advanced Energy Materials Laboratory, a developer of new materials and devices to enable alternative energy technologies including fuel cells and solar cells. He received his Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from Stanford University.

A complete, up-to-date, introductory guide to fuel cell technology and application Fuel Cell Fundamentals provides a thorough introduction to the principles and practicalities behind fuel cell technology. Beginning with the underlying concepts, the discussion explores fuel cell thermodynamics, kinetics, transport, and modeling before moving into the application side with guidance on system types and design, performance, costs, and environmental impact. This new third edition has been updated with the latest technological advances and relevant calculations, and enhanced chapters on advanced fuel cell design and electrochemical and hydrogen energy systems. Worked problems, illustrations, and application examples throughout lend a real-world perspective, and end-of chapter review questions and mathematical problems reinforce the material learned. Fuel cells produce more electricity than batteries or combustion engines, with far fewer emissions. This book is the essential introduction to the technology that makes this possible, and the physical processes behind this cost-saving and environmentally friendly energy source. Understand the basic principles of fuel cell physics Compare the applications, performance, and costs of different systems Master the calculations associated with the latest fuel cell technology Learn the considerations involved in system selection and design As more and more nations turn to fuel cell commercialization amidst advancing technology and dropping deployment costs, global stationary fuel cell revenue is expected to grow from $1.4 billion to $40.0 billion by 2022. The sector is forecasted to explode, and there will be a tremendous demand for high-level qualified workers with advanced skills and knowledge of fuel cell technology. Fuel Cell Fundamentals is the essential first step toward joining the new energy revolution.

Fundamentals of Mechanical Vibrations
97,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This introductory book covers the most fundamental aspects of vibration analysis for mechanical engineers. Vibration studies small motions of a mechanical system around its equilibrium configuration. The book consists of five major topics, each in its own chapter. It starts from a concise introduction to Langrangian dynamics as a tool for obtaining the governing equation(s) of motion for a system. In the process, key concepts such as degrees of freedom are rigorously defined. The second topic introduces mathematical tools for different types of vibration analyses for single degree-of-freedom systems. In the process, mathematical software Matlab is used to explore every example in a symbolic way, and in a curiosity-driven manner. The third topic introduces the lumped-parameter modelling process: how to convert many simple engineering structures into models consisting of masses and springs so that the multiple degrees of freedom systems, with many examples suitable for hand calculations and a few computer-aided examples that bridges the lumped-parameter models and continuous systems. The last topic introduces the finite element method. It is formally introduced by following the framework of Lagrangian dynamics, and followed by examples of vibration analyses using a commercial software package.
