Zeolite Characterization and Catalysis: A Tutorial

by E. G. Derouane Arthur W. Chester

The idea for putting together a tutorial on zeolites came originally from my co-editor, Eric Derouane, about 5 years ago. I ?rst met Eric in the mid-1980s when he spent 2 years working for Mobil R&D at our then Corporate lab at Princeton, NJ. He was on the senior technical staff with projects in the synthesis and characterization of new materials. At that time, I managed a group at our Paulsboro lab that was responsible for catalyst characterization in support of our catalyst and process development efforts, and also had a substantial group working on new material synthesis. Hence, our interests overlapped considerably and we met regularly. After Eric moved back to Namur (initially), we maintained contact, and in the 1990s, we met a number of times in Europe on projects of joint interest. It was after I retired from ExxonMobil in 2002 that we began to discuss the tutorial concept seriously. Eric had (semi-)retired and lived on the Algarve, the southern coast of Portugal. In January 2003, my wife and I spent 3 weeks outside of Lagos, and I worked parts of most days with Eric on the proposed content of the book. We decided on a comprehensive approach that ultimately amounted to some 20+ chapters covering all of zeolite chemistry and catalysis and gave it the title Zeolite Chemistry and Catalysis: An integrated Approach and Tutorial.

ZEMCH: Toward the Delivery of Zero Energy Mass Custom Homes (Springer Tracts in Civil Engineering)

by Masa Noguchi

In this book, leading international experts explore the emerging concept of the zero energy mass custom home (ZEMCH) – designed to meet the need for social, economic, and environmental sustainability – and provide all of the knowledge required for the delivery of zero energy mass customized housing and community developments in developed and developing countries. The coverage is wide ranging, progressing from explanation of the meaning of sustainable development to discussion of challenges and trends in mass housing, the advantages and disadvantages of prefabricated methods of construction, and the concepts of mass customization, mass personalization, and inclusive design. A chapter on energy use will aid the reader in designing and retrofitting housing to reduce energy demand and/or improve energy end‐use efficiency. Passive design strategies and active technologies (especially solar) are thoroughly reviewed. Application of the ZEMCH construction criteria to new buildings and refurbishment of old houses is explained and the methods and value of building performance simulation, analyzed. The concluding chapter presents examples of ZEMCH projects from around the world, with discussion of marketing strategy, design, quality assurance, and delivery challenges. The book will be invaluable as a training/teaching tool for both students and industry partners.

Zeitmanagement für Ingenieure (essentials)

by Ekbert Hering

Ingenieure in Führungsverantwortung sind in besonderer Weise Stress und Hektik ausgesetzt. Ein effektives und effizientes Zeitmanagement hilft dabei, die erforderlichen Ziele zu erreichen und ist ein wichtiger Schlüssel zu mehr Lebensqualität. Nach einer persönlichen Selbsteinschätzung werden die biologischen Gegebenheiten vorgestellt, wie die Leistungs-, Stör- und Konzentrationskurven. Zur Auswahl von Entscheidungen werden die Aufgaben je nach Dringlichkeit und Wichtigkeit in das Eisenhower-Portfolio eingetragen. Daraus lassen sich Prioritäten bestimmen. Als universell einsetzbare Methode für das Zeitmanagement wird die ALPEN-Methode ausführlich behandelt (A: Aktivitäten zusammenstellen; L: Länge der Aktivitäten abschätzen; P: Pufferzeiten reservieren: E: Entscheidungen fällen; N: Nachkontrolle). Wertvolle Tipps werden gegeben zum rationellen Arbeiten in Zeitblöcken, zum Besprechungs-, Telefon- und Besucher-Management sowie zum Umgang mit Zeiträubern und zum Zeitsparen. Zum Schluss wird gezeigt, dass das Zeitmanagement nur in der work-life-balance seinen sinnvollen Platz hat.

Zahnräder: Berechnung, Entwurf und Herstellung nach amerikanischen Erfahrungen

by Darle W. Dudley

Zahnräder gehören zu den am häufigsten verwendeten Maschinen­ elementen - es gibt wohl nur wenige Maschinen, die keine Zahnräder enthalten. Jeder im Maschinenbau tätige Konstrukteur muß sich deshalb immer wieder mit den Fragen des Entwurfs, der Herstellung und des Betriebsverhaltens von Zahnrädern befassen. Berechnung und Konstruktion von Zahnradgetrieben sind heute je­ doch schon fast zu einer eigenen Wissenschaft geworden; der dauernde Druck, immer billigere, ruhiger laufende, leichtere und leistungsstärkere Maschinen zu bauen, erforderte zwangsläufig auch immer wieder Verbes­ serungen der Zahnradgetriebe. Infolge dieser dauernden Anstrengungen und der Erfahrungen mit ausgeführten Konstruktionen, haben wir heute schon einen verhältnismäßig guten Einblick in den Beanspruchungs­ mechanismus der Zahnräder und es sind eine ganze Reihe komplizierter Verfahren für die Zahnradherstellung entwickelt worden. Um die Ent­ wicklung weiter voranzutreiben, sind verschiedene große Firmen dazu übergegangen, Laufverhalten und Tragfähigkeit in Dauerversuchen zu ermitteln. Zur Entwicklung neuer Getriebetypen werden besondere Ent­ wicklungsprogramme durchgeführt. - So findet man laufend neue Mittel, die Laufruhe und Tragfähigkeit zu steigern und die Herstellung zu ver­ billigen. Da viele Konstrukteure jedoch nicht die Zeit haben, sich über alle Fortschritte des Getriebebaues auf dem Laufenden zu halten, kommen sie in Gefahr, mit ihren Konstruktionen - gegenüber den Spitzenleistungen ihrer Branche - ins Hinter­ treffen zu geraten. Es gibt zwar ein umfangreiches Schrifttum über alle Zahnrad­ fragen und doch ist es in vielen Fällen schwierig, die Auskunft zu finden die man gerade benötigt. Die für die Praxis des Getriebebaues erforderlichen Angaben in über­ sichtlicher, sofort anwendbarer Form zusammenzufassen, ist der Zweck dieses Buches.

Youth Technical Sessions Proceedings: VI Youth Forum of the World Petroleum Council - Future Leaders Forum (WPF 2019), June 23-28, 2019, Saint Petersburg, Russian Federation

by Vladimir Litvinenko

Over a decade ago the World Petroleum Council launched an initiative to hold an international professional youth forum. The first forum took place in October 2004 in China, and had as its motto: "Young people and innovations are the future of the oil industry." It was the first major event in the history of the WPC in which young professionals and academics had the leading role, and had the opportunity to exchange their ideas in insights on the oil and gas industry with industry leaders and main representatives of the oil and gas industry. Since then, issues of professional development and the disclosure of the creative potential of young industry professionals have been on the agenda of the World Petroleum Council as one of the key areas for the development of international cooperation focused on a strategic perspective. The Future Leaders Forum of the World Petroleum Council VI is the largest international platform for professional communication of young specialists in the oil and gas industry. The contributions in this book are much of interest to professionals and scientists interested or involved in the oil and gas industry or related areas.

Youth and the Rural Economy in Africa: Hard Work and Hazard

by Máiréad Dunne Barbara Crossouard Dorte Thorsen Jordan Chamberlin Justin Flynn Marjoke Oosterom Carolina Szyp Felix Kwame Yeboah Thomas Yeboah

This book brings together recent findings from quantitative and qualitative research from across Africa to illuminate how young men and women engage with the rural economy, imagine their futures and how development policies and interventions find traction (or not) with these realities. Through framing, overview and evidence-based chapters, it provides a critical perspective on current discourse, research and development interventions around youth and rural development. It is organised around commonly-made foundational claims: that large numbers of young people are leaving rural areas; have no interest in agriculture; cannot access land; are stuck in permanent waithood; that the rural economy provides (or can provide) a wealth of opportunity; and that they can be the engine of rural transformation. It draws from existing literature and new analysis arising from several multi-country and multi-disciplinary studies, focusing on gender and other aspects of social difference. It is a major contribution to current debates and development policy about youth, agriculture and employment in rural Africa.

Youngsters Solving Mathematical Problems with Technology: The Results and Implications of the Problem@Web Project (Mathematics Education in the Digital Era #5)

by Keith Jones Hélia Jacinto Susana Carreira Nélia Amado Sandra Nobre

This book contributes to both mathematical problem solving and the communication of mathematics by students, and the role of personal and home technologies in learning beyond school. It does this by reporting on major results and implications of the Problem@Web project that investigated youngsters’ mathematical problem solving and, in particular, their use of digital technologies in tackling, and communicating the results of their problem solving, in environments beyond school. The book has two focuses: Mathematical problem solving skills and strategies, forms of representing and expressing mathematical thinking, technological-based solutions; and students´ and teachers´ perspectives on mathematics learning, especially school compared to beyond-school mathematics.

Young-Type Interferences with Electrons: Basics and Theoretical Challenges in Molecular Collision Systems (Springer Series on Atomic, Optical, and Plasma Physics #77)

by François Frémont

Since the discovery that atomic-size particles can be described as waves, many interference experiments have been realized with electrons to demonstrate their wave behavior. In this book, after describing the different steps that led to the present knowledge, we focus on the strong link existing between photon and electron interferences, highlighting the similarities and the differences. For example, the atomic centers of a hydrogen molecule are used to mimic the slits in the Young's famous interference experiment with light. We show, however, that the basic time-dependent ionization theories that describe these Young-type electron interferences are not able to reproduce the experiment. This crucial point remains a real challenge for theoreticians in atomic collision physics.

Young People's Images of Science (UK Higher Education OUP Humanities & Social Sciences Education OUP)

by Rosalind Driver John Leach Robin Millar Phil Scott

* What ideas about science do school students form as a result of their experiences in and out of school?* How might science teaching in schools develop a more scientifically-literate society?* How do school students understand disputes about scientific issues including those which have social significance, such as the irradiation of food?There have been calls in the UK and elsewhere for a greater public understanding of science underpinned by, amongst other things, school science education. However, the relationship between school science, scientific literacy and the public understanding of science remains controversial.In this book, the authors argue that an understanding of science goes beyond learning the facts, laws and theories of science and that it involves understanding the nature of scientific knowledge itself and the relationships between science and society. Results of a major study into the understanding of these issues by school students aged 9 to 16 are described. These results suggest that the success of the school science curriculum in promoting this kind of understanding is at best limited.The book concludes by discussing ways in which the school science curriculum could be adapted to better equip students as future citizens in our modern scientific and technological society. It will be particularly relevant to science teachers, advisers and inspectors, teacher educators and curriculum planners.

Young Men and Fire: Twenty-fifth Anniversary Edition

by Norman Maclean

A devastating and lyrical work of nonfiction, Young Men and Fire describes the events of August 5, 1949, when a crew of fifteen of the US Forest Service’s elite airborne firefighters, the Smokejumpers, stepped into the sky above a remote forest fire in the Montana wilderness. Two hours after their jump, all but three of the men were dead or mortally burned. Haunted by these deaths for forty years, Norman Maclean puts together the scattered pieces of the Mann Gulch tragedy in Young Men and Fire, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award. Alongside Maclean’s now-canonical A River Runs through It and Other Stories, Young Men and Fire is recognized today as a classic of the American West. This twenty-fifth anniversary edition of Maclean’s later triumph—the last book he would write—includes a powerful new foreword by Timothy Egan, author of The Big Burn and The Worst Hard Time. As moving and profound as when it was first published, Young Men and Fire honors the literary legacy of a man who gave voice to an essential corner of the American soul.
