TitleSmart Materials for Energy, Communications and Security
Author(s)Luk'yanchuk, Igor A;Mezzane, Daoud
PublicationDordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Netherlands, 2008.
DescriptionXIV, 275 p : online resource
Abstract NoteRapid evolution of trade, cultural and human relations provides the qualitative and quantitative enhancement of international collaborations, linking the countries with different economical and technological level. Delocalization of High-Tech industry inevitably leads to development of the material science and engineering researches in emergent countries, requiring transfer of know-how, restructuration of basic research and educational networks. This book presents the contributions of participants of the Advanced Research Workshop ???Smart Materials for Energy, Communications and Security??? (ARW SMECS; www.smecs.ferroix.net), organized in December 2007 in Marrakech in frame of the ???NATO - Science for Peace??? program. The objective of this event was the attempt to overview several hot topics of material physics related with problems of modern society: transformation and storage of energy, treatment and transmission of information, environmental security issues etc., with the focus of their implementation in Mediterranean Dialogue (MD) countries: Algeria, Egypt, Mauritania, Morocco and Tunisia. The workshop is an important stage in developing of the research network ???Mediterranean Electronic Materials??? ??? MEM (www.reseau-MEM.org), that has an objective to encourage the inter-Maghreb and Europe-Maghreb collaborative studies in the area of electroactive materials. Participants of the Advanced Research Workshop ???Smart Materials for Energy, Communications and Security??? , Marrakech, Morocco, December 2007 v vi PREFACE

TitleThe Dynamics of Heat : A Unified Approach to Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer
Author(s)Fuchs, Hans U
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2010.
DescriptionXII, 734 p. 229 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteBased on courses for students of science, engineering, and systems science at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences at Winterthur, this text approaches the fundamentals of thermodynamics from the point of view of continuum physics. By describing physical processes in terms of the flow and balance of physical quantities, the author achieves a unified approach to hydraulics, electricity, mechanics and thermodynamics. In this way, it becomes clear that entropy is the fundamental property that is transported in thermal processes (i.e., heat), and that temperature is the corresponding potential. The resulting theory of the creation, flow, and balance of entropy provides the foundation of a dynamical theory of heat. This extensively revised and updated second edition includes new material on dynamical chemical processes, thermoelectricity, and explicit dynamical modeling of thermal and chemical processes. To make the book more useful for courses on thermodynamics and physical chemistry at different levels, coverage of topics is divided into introductory and more advanced and formal treatments. Previous knowledge of thermodynamics is not required, but the reader should be familiar with basic electricity, mechanics, and chemistry and should have some knowledge of elementary calculus. The special feature of the first edition ??? the integration of thermodynamics, heat transfer, and chemical processes ??? has been??maintained and strengthened. Key Features: Presents a unified approach to thermodynamics and heat transport in fundamental physical and chemical processes First revised edition of a successful text/reference in fourteen years More than 25 percent new material Provides worked examples, questions, and problem sets for use as a teaching text or for self testing Includes many system dynamics models of laboratory experiments

TitleHarvesting Space for a Greener Earth
Author(s)Matloff, Greg;Bangs, C;Johnson, Les
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2014.
DescriptionXV, 277 p. 120 illus., 88 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteWhat was our planet like in years past? How has our civilization affected Earth and its ecology? Harvesting Space for a Greener Planet, the Second Edition of Paradise Regained: The Regreening of the Earth, begins by discussing these questions, and then generates a scenario for the restoration of Earth. It introduces new and innovative ideas on how we could use the Solar System and its resources for terrestrial benefit. The environmental challenges that face us today cannot be resolved by conservation and current technologies alone. Harvesting Space highlights the risk of humankind???s future extinction from environmental degradation. Population growth, global climate change, and maintaining sustainability of habitats for wildlife are all considered, among other issues. Rather than losing heart, we need to realize that the solutions to these problems lie in being good stewards of the planet and in the development of space. Not only will the solutions offered here avert a crisis, they will also provide the basis for continued technological and societal progress. Tapping the resources of near-Earth asteroids will lead to methods of diverting those asteroids that threaten Earth. Space-based terrestrial power generation systems will work synergistically with Earth-based conservation. This book needs to be read urgently and widely, if we are to save ourselves from environmental disaster, reduce the risk of catastrophic cosmic impacts, and build a prosperous and sustainable future for all the creatures of Earth

TitleSimple physics of energy use
Author(s)Peter Rez
PublicationOxford University Press
Abstract NoteIn industrially developed countries, energy is used primarily for three things-maintaining a comfortable environment in buildings, transporting people and goods and manufacturing products. Each accounts for about one-third of the total primary energy use. Controlling the indoor temperature accounts for most of the energy use in buildings. Therefore, this strongly depends on the local climate. Electricity accounts for a high proportion of the energy transfer in developed countries. The problem is that electricity cannot easily be stored, and that supply therefore has to match demand. This makes the use of intermittent renewables such as solar and wind particularly challenging. Transportation efficiency can be measured by the energy used to move a person or a tonne of freight over a given distance, but there is also the journey time to consider. Transportation, with the exception of trains, is constrained by the energy density and convenience of fuels, and it is hard to beat liquid hydrocarbons as fuels. Materials that are dug out of the earth are nearly always oxides, but we want the element itself. The reduction process inevitably uses energy and produces carbon dioxide. Even growing crops requires energy in addition to that provided by sunlight. A meat-based diet requires significantly higher energy inputs than a vegetarian diet. Growing crops for fuel is a poor use of land, the problem being that crops do not grow fast enough. Policy should ultimately be based on what works from a physics and engineering viewpoint, and not on legislation that mandates the use of favoured renewable energy sources.

TitleEnergy, the subtle concept
Author(s)Jennifer Coopersmith
PublicationOxford University Press 2015.
Abstract NoteEnergy is explained through its history. Newton missed ‘energy’, Leibniz defined kinetic energy, and potential energy emerged from ideas about stored ‘live force’, the concept of ‘work’, analyses of vibrating strings, the figure of the Earth, and so forth. The Principles of Virtual Work, Least Action, and D’Alembert underpinned Lagrange’s Analytical Mechanics. Daniel Bernoulli appreciated energy-in-the-round, and quantified the ‘live force’ in coal. Rumford’s experiments on canon-boring showed an ‘inexhaustible’ source of frictional heating, but didn’t immediately topple caloric theory. Clairaut, Laplace, and Green founded potential function theory. Hamilton brought in the ‘Hamiltonian’, and his approach led into Schrödinger’s wave mechanics. Carnot defined an ideal heat-engine (Carnot cycle) and realized temperature was the parameter. Watt’s steam engine started the Industrial Revolution, but why was it discovered in just one place, at one time? Mayer and Joule crossed the ‘category error’, merging mechanics and heat. Helmholtz invoked Kantian ‘cause equals effect’ to justify conservation of ‘energy’. Maxwell was the first to use probability theory in physics; Boltzmann posited discrete energy levels. The Maxwell–Boltzmann kinetic theory brought in a deeper understanding of energy. Clausius and Thomson (Kelvin) discovered the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics. Einstein’s Principle of Relativity led to the famous E = mc2. The force and energy views are compared, and difficult questions are examined: why are there two forms of energy–kinetic and potential–and is one more fundamental? Why does kinetic energy have the form 1/2mv2? What are action, temperature, and the Hamiltonian? What is energy?
