Structural Mechanics by R. Hulse, Jack Cain

By R. Hulse, Jack Cain

This moment variation of Structural Mechanics is an accelerated and revised successor to the hugely winning first variation, which during the last ten years has develop into a generally followed ordinary first 12 months textual content. The addition of 5 new programmes, including a few updating of the unique textual content, now implies that this e-book covers lots of the ideas of structural mechanics taught within the first and moment years of civil engineering measure classes.

· compatible for autonomous learn or as a praise to a standard lecture-based course
· Adopts a programmed studying layout, with a spotlight on student-centred learning
· includes many examples, rigorously built questions and graded useful difficulties, permitting the reader to paintings at their very own speed, and investigate their development while gaining self assurance of their skill to use the foundations of Structural Mechanics
· Now overlaying the foremost a part of the Structural Mechanics/Analysis syllabuses of such a lot Civil Engineering measure classes as much as moment 12 months point.

Analysis of Box Girder and Truss Bridges by Guohao Li

By Guohao Li

This booklet displays the sensible adventure the authors have received in interpreting the field girder and the truss utilized in bridge engineering; the directly and curved field girder bridge, the truss bridge, and the arch-stiffened truss bridge are thought of, wherein bending and torsional stresses, lateral buckling and vibrations are investigated. The authors have proven a extra exact thin-walled beam conception of field girder, and, as an extension of the thin-walled beam idea, constructed a idea of bending and torsion of the truss bridge. Many useful examples were analyzed, and from those effects, conclusions necessary to layout perform were deducted.

Recyclingtechnik: Fachbuch fur Lehre und Praxis by Hans Martens

By Hans Martens

Das Recycling von Altger?ten, Werkstoffen und anderen Materialien leistet einen wesentlichen Beitrag zur Ressourcenschonung, Schadstoffbeseitigung und Energieeinsparung sowie zur Reduzierung von Deponievolumen. Die einsetzbare Recyclingtechnik ist dabei eine grundlegende Voraussetzung f?r die wirtschaftliche Realisierung der Prozesse. Das Buch behandelt zu Beginn die verf?gbaren mechanischen, thermischen und physikalisch-chemischen Verfahrenstechniken. In den folgenden materialspezifischen Abschnitten werden die Werkstofftypen und Abfallsorten vorgestellt und daraus die m?glichen und technisch realisierten Recyclingverfahren f?r Metallschrotte, Altkunststoffe, Altglas, Altpapier, St?ube und fl?ssige Abf?lle abgeleitet und bewertet. Es folgt die Beschreibung der Recyclingverfahren f?r sehr komplexe Altprodukte (Elektro- und Elektronikger?te, Autos). Die Technologien und Apparate werden durch 137 Verfahrensflie?bilder und Apparateskizzen erl?utert. Ein Abschnitt zu der substitute der energetischen Verwertung von Altstoffen vervollst?ndigt die Abhandlungen. Abschlie?end wird den Ingenieuren des Maschinen- und Anlagenbaus eine Zusammenstellung zur Recyclingvertr?glichkeit von Werkstoffen und Produkten an die Hand gegeben, die eine recyclinggerechte Konstruktion und Fertigung erm?glicht. Das Buch ist als einf?hrende Literatur in die Recyclingtechnik konzipiert und deshalb besonders f?r die Lehre in der umwelttechnischen und ingenieurtechnischen Ausbildung geeignet. Dar?ber hinaus wird es auch als zusammenfassende Darstellung der Recyclingtechnik das Interesse von Fachleuten in Entsorgungsunternehmen und Umweltbeh?rden finden.
