How to Write Anything with Readings: A Guide and Reference Web Engineering: The Discipline of Systematic Development of Web Applications
No description available.
Price: 127.95
"The World Wide Web has a massive and permanent influence on our lives. Economy, industry, education, healthcare, public administration, entertainment – there is hardly any part of our daily lives which has not been pervaded by the Internet. Accordingly, modern Web applications are fully-fledged, complex software systems, and in order to be successful their development must be thorough and systematic.

This book presents a new discipline called Web Engineering taking a rigorous interdisciplinary approach to the development of Web applications, covering Web development concepts, methods, tools and techniques. It highlights the need to examine and re-use the body of knowledge found within software engineering and demonstrates how to use that knowledge within the Web environment, putting emphasize on current practices, experiences and pitfalls.

The book is ideal for undergraduate and graduate students on Web-focused or Software Engineering courses, as well as Web software developers, Web designers and project managers.

Post-Tensioned Concrete Floors Concrete Design to En 1992
"Post-tensioning is a technique which enables engineers to make the most effective use of the material properties of concrete, and so economically design structural elements which are strong, slender and efficient. Design in post-tensioned concrete is not difficult and, if properly carried out, can contribute significantly to the aesthetic qualities of a building. As a result, post-tensioned floors have found widespread use in office buildings, car park structures, warehouses and public buildings. However, in spite of this, most prestressed concrete texts devote comparatively little attention to floors, concentrating instead on bridge elements. This book therefore aims to fulfil the need for a comprehensive treatment of post-tensioned floor design. No prior knowledge of prestressed concrete behaviour or design is assumed. Early chapters describe the principles and methods of prestressing in a general non-mathematical way which will be easily understood by architects and surveyors as well as engineers. This section also includes comparisons with reinforced concrete. Later chapters explain the design process in detail. The approach taken is first to outline the underlying principles and highlight areas of major importance or difficulty, then to explain the detailed application of these principles in accordance with both British and American standards. The book includes all aspects of the life cycle of a building: from initial planning, through detailed design to construction, maintenance and alteration of floors."

"The transition from national standards for concrete structural design to Eurocode EN 1992 is the biggest change to concrete design for decades.
This new edition of Concrete Design explains the key differences between BS8110 and EN1992, and teaches the fundamentals of the design of concrete structures to comply with the Eurocodes.
With many illustrations and worked examples, this accessible textbook teaches the essentials of concrete design to EN1992 to students and professionals alike.
* Full coverage of the concrete structural Eurocode
* Detailed worked examples and tutorial problems
* Analysis of the key changes from the old national standards"

COMSOL for Engineers Programming Fundamentals Using Java A Game Application Approach
"COMSOL Multiphysics software is one of the most valuable software modeling tools for engineers and scientists. This book is designed for engineers from the fields of mechanical, electrical, and civil disciplines, and introduces multiphysics modeling techniques and examples accompanied by practical applications using COMSOL 4.x. The book includes a companion CD-ROM with files of over 25 models, images, and code. The main objective is to introduce readers to use COMSOL as an engineering tool for modeling by solving examples that could become a guide for modeling similar or more complicated problems. The objective is to provide a collection of examples and modeling guidelines through which readers can build their own models. Readers are assumed to be familiar with the principles of numerical modeling and the finite element method (FEM). The book takes a flexible-level approach for presenting the materials along with using practical examples. The mathematical fundamentals, engineering principles, and design criteria are presented as integral parts of examples. At the end of each chapter are references that contain more in-depth physics, technical information, and data; these are referred to throughout the book and used in the examples. COMSOL for Engineers could be used to complement another text that provides background training in engineering computations and methods. Examples provided in this book should be considered as ""lessons"" for which background physics could be explained in more detail."
