PEM Fuel Cells: Thermal and Water Management Fundamentals

Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) gas cells convert chemical strength in hydrogen into electricity with water because the purely spinoff. hence, PEM gasoline cells carry nice promise to minimize either pollutant emissions and dependency on fossil fuels, in particular for transportation—passenger autos, software cars, and buses—and small-scale desk bound and conveyable strength turbines.

Materials and Sustainable Development

This e-book, from famous fabrics choice authority Mike Ashby, presents a constitution and framework for examining sustainable improvement and the function of fabrics in it. the purpose is to introduce methods of exploring sustainable improvement to readers in a manner that avoids simplistic interpretations and techniques complexity in a scientific method.

Statics of Granular Media

Statics of Granular Media specializes in the idea of proscribing equilibrium of a granular medium. The ebook first discusses the restricting of equilibrium of a granular medium, together with proscribing stipulations, restricting equilibrium of foundations, and restricting airplane equilibrium of a granular medium. The textual content additionally makes a speciality of the soundness of foundations and slopes.
