The recent worldwide boom in industrial construction and the corresponding billions of dollars spent every year in industrial, oil, gas, and petrochemical and power generation project, has created fierce competition for these projects. Strong management and technical competence will bring your projects in on time and on budget. An in-depth exploration of both these aspects and the resulting challenges, Construction Management and Design of Industrial Concrete and Steel Structures provides a practical guide to the design of reinforced concrete and steel structures and foundations in industrial projects.

Renowned expert Mohamed A. El-Reedy covers the entire industrial construction process, from project management to design and construction to sigh off and providing a maintenance plan. Highlighting the differences between industrial construction and real estate or residential construction, he examines every phase and every role, from managerial to technical. He includes cases from industrial projects and covers the international technical practices, codes, and standards used in steel or concrete onshore or offshore projects. The book provides up-to-date methodologies in structure analysis, geotechnical studies, and international special codes and standards for industrial structures such as tanks, foundation under towers, machines, and special structures in industrial projects. It also examines the safety and economic benefits of developing a structure integrity management system.

When a project has a budget that seems as huge at the structure itself, the client, engineering firm, and contractor must work together to achieve success. Discussing the interface between these three main partners, this book outlines strategies for checking the design and controlling a project in all its phases.

Spreadsheet Problem Solving and Programming for Engineers and Scientists provides a comprehensive resource essential to a full understanding of modern spreadsheet skills needed for engineering and scientific computations.

Beginning with the basics of spreadsheets and programming, this book builds on the authors’ decades of experience teaching spreadsheets and programming to both university students and professional engineers and scientists. Following on from this, it covers engineering economics, key numerical methods, and applied statistics. Finally, this book details the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) programming system that accompanies Excel.

With each chapter including examples and a set of exercises, this book is an ideal companion for all engineering courses and also for self-study. Based on the latest version of Excel (Microsoft Excel for Microsoft 365), it is also compatible with earlier versions of Excel dating back to Version 2013. Including numerous case studies, this book will be of interest to students and professionals working in all areas of engineering and science.

Richard Badger ... 500 pages - Language: English - Publisher: ‎Bloomsbury Academic; 2nd edition (Januar, 2024) - ISBN: 1350177199 and 978-1350177192.


Offering a solid, research-based approach along with sound practical advice, this book equips you with the skills you need to analyse your own contexts and develop your practice, whether through formal study or alone. Badger explores teaching English as a problem-solving activity addressing three fundamental questions: what aspect of language do students needs to learn, how do they learn it, and how can teachers support this learning.

This new edition includes updated references, a chapter on pragmatics, coverage of concepts such as translanguaging, CLIL, EMI, English as a lingua franca and sections on digital learning. Topics covered include: · Psychological and social learning processes · TESOL teaching methods and approaches · Lesson planning and classroom management · English teacher professional development.

The book also includes chapter summaries, activities for students and key readings recommendations, and online resources such as video case studies, additional exercises and multiple choice quizzes to consolidate learning. The book is ideal for both trainee and practicing teachers who want to develop their practice.

Publishing your research in an international journal is key to your success in academia. This guide is based on a study of over 1000 manuscripts and reviewers' reports revealing why papers written by non-native researchers are often rejected due to problems with English usage and poor structure and content.

With easy-to-follow rules and tips, and examples taken from published and unpublished papers, you will learn how to: prepare and structure a manuscript + increase readability and reduce the number of mistakes you make in English by writing concisely, with no redundancy and no ambiguity + write a title and an abstract that will attract attention and be read + decide what to include in the various parts of the paper (Introduction, Methodology, Discussion etc) + highlight your claims and contribution + avoid plagiarism + discuss the limitations of your research + choose the correct tenses and style + satisfy the requirements of editors and reviewers.

This new edition contains over 40% new material, including two new chapters, stimulating factoids, and discussion points both for self-study and in-class use. This edition has two completely new chapters covering machine translation and using AI tools (e.g. chatbots, paraphrasers, editing tools) to improve and correct the English of a text.

Patrick Chassaing ... 912 pages - Language: English - Publisher: ‎Springer (January, 2023).

This textbook provides a coherent and structured overview of fluid mechanics, a discipline concerned with many natural phenomena and at the very heart of the most diversified industrial applications and human activities. The balance between phenomenological analysis, physical conceptualization and mathematical formulation serve both as a unifying educational marker and as a methodological guide to the three parts of the work. The thermo-mechanical motion equations of a homogeneous single-phase fluid are established, from which flow models (perfect fluid, viscous) and motion classes (isovolume, barotropic, irrotational, etc.) are derived. Incompressible, potential flows and compressible flows, both in an isentropic evolution and shock, of an ideal inviscid fluid are addressed in the second part. The viscous fluid is the subject of the last one, with the creeping motion regime and the laminar, dynamic and thermal boundary layer. Historical perspectives are included whenever they enrich the understanding of modern concepts. Many examples, chosen for their pedagogical relevance, are dealt with in exercises.

The book is intended as a teaching tool for undergraduate students, wishing to acquire a first command of fluid mechanics, as well as graduates in advanced courses and engineers in other fields, concerned with completing what is sometimes a scattered body of knowledge.
