River Sedimentation: Proceedings of the 13th International Symposium on River Sedimentation

Sediment dynamics in fluvial systems is of great ecological, economic and human-health-related significance worldwide. Appropriate management strategies are therefore needed to limit maintenance costs as well as minimize potential hazards to the aquatic and adjacent environments. Human intervention, ranging from nutrient/pollutant release to physical modifications, has a large impact on sediment quantity and quality and thus on river...

Optical Electronics: Self-Organized Integration and Applications

This book proposes and reviews comprehensive strategies based on optical electronics for constructing optoelectronic systems with minimized optics excess. It describes the core technologies such as self-organized optical waveguides based on self-organized lightwave network (SOLNET), three-dimensional optical circuits, material-saving heterogeneous thin-film device integration process (PL-Pack with SORT), and high-speed/small-size lig...

Power Systems-on-Chip: Practical Aspects of Design

The book gathers the major issues involved in the practical design of Power Management solutions in wireless products as Internet-of-things. Presentation is not about state-of-the-art but about appropriation of validated recent technologies by practicing engineers. The book delivers insights on major trade-offs and a presentation of examples as a cookbook. The content is segmented in chapters to make access easier for the lay-person.

GAM 12: Structural Affairs

Innovative design depends to an increasing degree on interdisciplinary cooperation between architects, engineers, and the construction industry. GAM.12 &#8211 Structural Affairs surveys the collaborative scene in today`s architectural workflows and presents current projects and theoretical positions for discussion.

Climate Change Impacts on Urban Pests

This book is the first resource to review the influence of climate change on urban and public pests such as mosquitoes, flies, ticks, and wood pests, with respect to population, distribution, disease, damage and control. It systematically addresses how the impact of climate change on pests in urban areas differs from natural areas, focusing on the increased temperatures of urban locations, the effect of natural disasters, the manner ...

Essentials of UMTS

The third generation (3G) cellular system UMTS is advanced, optimised and complex. The many existing books on UMTS attempt to explain all the intricacies of the system and as a result are large and equally complex. This book takes a different approach and explains UMTS in a concise, clear and readily understandable style. Written by a professional technical trainer, and based on training courses delivered on UMTS to telecommunication...

Basic Electrical Engineering with Numerical Problems, Volume 1

This book has been writeen as per the syllabus prescribed by the directorate general of employment and training for craftsmen training to be electricians. The work is in very simple language with illustrations explaining each theoretical concept. Isi standards have been referred to wherever necessary. At the end of each chapter a large number of achievement exercises are given to help the student test if the concepts have been unders...

Biomass – Detection, Production and Usage by Darko Matovic

Biomass has been an intimate companion of humans from the dawn of civilization to the present. Its use as food, energy source, body cover and as construction material established the key areas of biomass usage that extend to this day. Given the complexities of biomass as a source of multiple end products, this volume sheds new light to the whole spectrum of biomass related topics by highlighting the new and reviewing the existing met...
