Arduino – Maîtrisez Sa Programmation Et Ses Cartes D’interface (shields)

L’Arduino permet de réaliser à moindre coût des applications à base de microcontrôleur sans nécessiter de connaissances particulières en électronique ni en programmation, sans avoir besoin de sortir le fer à souder et sans devoir investir dans des outils de développement. C’est en grande partie grâce à ces atouts que l’Arduino doit son succès planétaire. Après un bref rappel de ce qu’est un microcontrôleur et une présentation des dif...

Demain, Quelle Terre ? : Dialogue Sur L’environnement Et La Transition Énergétique

Energie et environnement sont les deux partenaires d'un couple infernal. La perspective d'une pénurie de ressources et la menace d'un changement climatique poussent à entamer une transition énergétique difficile à définir car ses objectifs diffèrent suivant les interlocuteurs. Les défenseurs de la Nature voient le salut de la planète dans une forte réduction de la consommation d'énergie qui automatiquement minimiserait les atteintes ...

Responding To Climate Change: Lessons From An Australian Hotspot

South East Queensland has been one of the fastest growing regions of Australia, both in terms of its rapidly growing population and an ever-expanding built environment. It is also one of the most vulnerable regions likely to suffer from the adverse impacts of climate change, especially increased flooding, storms, coastal erosion and drought. Responding to Climate Change: Lessons from an Australian Hotspot brings together the results ...

Crystals And Crystal Growth

Hydrothermal crystal growth offers a complementary alternative to many of the classical techniques of crystal growth used to synthesise new materials and grow bulk crystals for specific applications. This specialised technique is often capable of growing crystals at temperatures well below their melting points and thus potentially offers routes to new phases or the growth of bulk crystals with less thermal strain. Borate crystals are...

Introduction To Design For Civil Engineers

An Introduction to Design for Civil Engineers is a concise book that provides the reader with the necessary background on terminology used in design. With this book as a guide, entry-level students of civil engineering will better understand from the outset lectures on detailed subject areas. Drawing on a wealth of experience, the two authors present a largely qualitative treatment of the subject matter with little mathematics. Descr...

Ecological Sustainability For Non-timber Forest Products: Dynamics And Case Studies Of Harvesting

There is growing knowledge about and appreciation of the importance of Non-timber Forest Products (NTFPs) to rural livelihoods in developing countries, and to a lesser extent, developed countries. However, there is also an assumption on the part of policy-makers that any harvesting of wild animal or plant products from the forests and other natural and modified ecosystems must be detrimental to the long-term viability of target popul...
