Description: Solidification phenomena play an important role in many of the processes used in fields ranging from production engineering to solid-state physics. The broad range of applications of solidification models - from the large tonnages of continuously cast products, through superalloy precision castings, to high-purity single crystals - means that a book such as the present one must cater for the requirements of a very wide range of readers.

Description: This book focuses on treatment approaches that include a recycling loop for the water, nutrients, energy, and other resources in wastewater. The preliminary indications are that decentralized, re-circulating systems for wastewater treatment can be significantly cheaper than the building and maintaining of conventional systems.

Description: The continuing growth of urban populations throughout the world is one of the most frightening problems of today. The problems of megacities, i.e. those with more than 10 million inhabitants and which are growing fastest in developing countries, must be fully recognized within the context of the world environment.

Description: The purpose of this book is to discuss the properties of non-metallic elements, when dissolved as a minor impurity in liquid metals and alloys, in terms of statistical thermodynamics, quantum mechanics and the latest structural models. The behaviour of non-metallic elements in liquid metals is one of the most important problems in metallurgical and physical chemistry, since it plays a central role in the manufacture of metallic materials.

Description: Research in the field of Jurassic Stratigraphy has been increasingly active up to the present time. The aim of this volume is to present new results as well as to suggest areas for further research work and new and/or different stratigraphical tools, such as Sequence Stratigraphy. Formal questions on Jurassic Stratigraphy are also discussed, such as fine definitions of the boundaries of stages, series and of the system itself.
