Presenting the work of pioneering experts in this exciting field of supramolecular polymer chemistry, this monograph covers an extensive range of applications, including drug delivery and catalysis. It focuses on new structures and phenomena of cyclodextrin-based supramolecular polymers and many other compound classes. While providing a deeper insight in macromolecular recognition and the mechanisms of living systems, this book also introduces fascinating novel phenomena beyond natural systems.
This book is written for all those involved in measurement of soil water phenomena, whether they be environmental scientists, field technicians, agronomists, meteorologists, hydrogeologists, foresters, physical geographers, civil or water engineers or students in these subjects. It contains a comprehensive description of all the major methods used for measurement of soil water content and potential, solute concentration, transport and balance of water and solutes, including recharge to groundwater aquifers. The emphasis is firmly on techniques which can be applied in the field or on samples obtained from the field. The theory and practice of the workings of the main instruments and methods available is described, along with practical tips on surmounting some of the main difficulties and explanations of many commonly encountered jargon words.
This book has been written with the idea of providing the fundamentals for those who are interested in the field of heat transfer to non-Newtonian uids. It is well recognized that non-Newtonian fluids are encountered in a number of transport processes and estimation of the heat transfer characteristics in the presence of these fl uids requires analysis of equations that are far more complex than those encountered for Newtonian fl uids. A deliberate effort has be made to demonstrate the methods of simplication of the complex equations and to put forth analytical expressions for the various heat transfer situations in as vivid manner as possible. The book covers a broad range of topics from forced, naturaland mixed convection without and with porous media. Laminaras well as turbulent flow heat transfer to non-Newtonian fluids have been treated and the criterion for transition from laminar toturbulent fl ow for natural convection has been established. The heat transfer characteristics of non-Newtonian fl uids from inelastic power-law fluids to viscoelastic second-order fluids and mildly elastic drag reducing fl uids are covered. This book can serve the needs of undergraduates, graduates and industry personnel from the fields of chemical engineering, material science and engineering, mechanical engineering and polymer engineering.
Provides the tools needed to control and remediate the quality of natural water systems Now in its Second Edition, this acclaimed text sets forth core concepts and principles that govern the fate and transport of contaminants in water, giving environmental and civil engineers and students a full set of tools to design systems that effectively control and remediate the quality of natural waters. Readers will find coverage of all major classes of water bodies. Moreover, the author discusses the terrestrial fate and transport of contaminants in watersheds, underscoring the link between terrestrial loadings and water pollution. Water-Quality Engineering in Natural Systems begins with an introduction exploring the sources of water pollution and the control of water pollution. It then presents the fundamentals of fate and transport, including the derivation and application of the advection–diffusion equation. Next, the text covers issues that are unique to: Rivers and streams Groundwater Watersheds Lakes and reservoirs Wetlands Oceans and estuaries The final two chapters are dedicated to analyzing water-quality measurements and modeling water quality. This Second Edition is thoroughly updated based on the latest findings, practices, and standards. In particular, readers will find new methods for calculating total maximum daily loads for river contaminants, with specific examples detailing the fate and transport of bacteria, a pressing problem throughout the world. With end-of-chapter problems and plenty of worked examples, Water-Quality Engineering in Natural Systems enables readers to not only understand what happens to contaminants in water, but also design systems to protect people from toxic pollutants.
