  • Introduction to isotopic materials science / Vladimir G. Plekhanov
    TA418.9.N35

    This book describes new trends in the nanoscience of isotopic materials science. Assuming a background in graduate condensed matter physics and covering the fundamental aspects of isotopic materials science from the very beginning, it equips readers to engage in high-level professional research in this area. The book´s main objective is to provide insight into the question of why solids are the way they are, either because of how their atoms are bonded with one another, because of defects in their structure, or because of how they are produced or processed. Accordingly, it explores the science of how atoms interact, connects the results to real materials properties, and demonstrates the engineering concepts that can be used to produce or improve semiconductors by design. In addition, it shows how the concepts discussed are applied in the laboratory. The book addresses the needs of researchers, graduate students and senior undergraduate students alike. Although primarily written for materials science audience, it will be equally useful to those teaching in electrical engineering, materials science or even chemical engineering or physics curricula. In order to maintain the focus on materials concepts, however, the book does not burden the reader with details of many of the derivations and equations nor does it delve into the details of electrical engineering topics.

    TA 447 A53 2017eb

    Prepared by the Direct Design of Buried Concrete Pipe Box Sections Standards Committee of the Construction Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers

    Standard ASCE/CI 15-17 focuses on the direct design of buried precast concrete pipe using standard installations, known as SIDD. The direct design method improves on indirect design, because direct design accounts for the soil pressure distribution around an installed pipe and provides a procedure for determining the pressure distribution coefficients for the standard installations.

    Standard Practice for Direct Design of Buried Precast Concrete Pipe Using Standard Installations reviews the design and construction of the soil-pipe interaction system used for the conveyance of sewage, industrial wastes, stormwater, and drainage. The SIDD method accounts for the interaction between pipe and soil envelope in determining loads, pressure distributions, moment, thrust, and shear. Construction requirements for excavation, safety, foundations, bedding, sheathing removal, and trench shield advancement are presented. Four types of standard embankment installations and four types of standard trench installations are covered. This Standard, a revision of ASCE 15-98, includes updates to correlate with the latest ASTM International and American Concrete Pipe Association (ACPA) documents for trench and embankment conditions, as well as current soil classifications. Design equations for nonreinforced concrete pipe have been added.

    Standard ASCE/CI 15-17 may be used as a reference in preparing project specifications based on the SIDD method, and the limits state design procedure is consistent with the procedures outlined in the AASHTO Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges . This Standard is useful to civil engineering design professionals, consultants, owners, and transportation officials.

  • Leading and managing professional services firms in the infrastructure sector / Tim Ellis
    TA 216 E525 2018

    Professional services firms play a vital role in the social, environmental and economic well-being of any economy. This book considers the key skills and elements required to successfully lead and manage a professional services firm operating in the infrastructure sector. Public- and private-sector clients recognise the role that infrastructure plays in the functionality of our cities and that most urban conurbations have a backlog of infrastructure to deliver to meet the needs of increasing populations, greater urbanisation and emerging economies. Just keeping pace with projected global GDP growth will require an enormous investment in infrastructure and skilful leadership to deliver it.

    In response to this challenge, professional services firms will need to be well-led and well-managed to be successful and sustainable in the long-term. Such organisations must provide high-value advice, design, knowledge and innovations to get more out of the existing assets and to plan and design new assets with greater integrity and construct them more productively, efficiently and effectively. This book provides practical frameworks for emerging operational managers and future project leaders to prepare them to successfully manage these firms and deliver such projects in the face of new and often disruptive technologies and shifting corporate landscapes.

    The book is essential reading for aspiring leaders operating in all infrastructure market sectors including energy, water, sewerage, road, rail, ports, airports, education, health, justice, retail, entertainment, property and development sectors.
