<b>A comprehensive, state-of-the-art guide to pavement design and materials</b> <p> With innovations ranging from the advent of <i>Superpave</i>™, the data generated by the Long Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) project, to the recent release of the Mechanistic-Empirical  pavement design guide developed under NCHRP Study 1-37A, the field of pavement engineering is experiencing significant development. <i>Pavement Design and Materials</i>  is a practical reference for both students and practicing engineers that explores all the aspects of pavement engineering, including materials, analysis, design, evaluation, and economic analysis. <p> Historically, numerous techniques have been applied by a multitude of jurisdictions dealing with roadway pavements. This book focuses on the best-established, currently applicable techniques available. <p> <i>Pavement Design and Materials</i> offers complete coverage of: <ul type="disc"> <li>The characterization of traffic input <li>The characterization of pavement bases/subgrades and aggregates <li>Asphalt binder and asphalt concrete characterization <li>Portland cement and concrete characterization <li>Analysis of flexible and rigid pavements <li>Pavement evaluation <li>Environmental effects on pavements <li>The design of flexible and rigid pavements <li>Pavement rehabilitation <li>Economic analysis of alternative pavement designs </ul> <p> The coverage is accompanied by suggestions for software for implementing various analytical techniques described in these chapters. These tools are easily accessible through the book’s companion Web site, which is constantly updated to ensure that the reader finds the most up-to-date software available.
Practicing designers, students, and educators in the semiconductor field face an ever expanding portfolio of MOSFET models. In "Compact MOSFET Models for VLSI Design," A.B. Bhattacharyya presents a unified perspective on the topic, allowing the practitioner to view and interpret device phenomena concurrently using different modeling strategies. Readers will learn to link device physics with model parameters, helping to close the gap between device understanding and its use for optimal circuit performance. Bhattacharyya also lays bare the core physical concepts that will drive the future of VLSI development, allowing readers to stay ahead of the curve, despite the relentless evolution of new models.
Adopts a unified approach to guide students through the confusing array of MOSFET models Links MOS physics to device models to prepare practitioners for real-world design activities Helps fabless designers bridge the gap with off-site foundries Features rich coverage of: quantum mechanical related phenomena Si-Ge strained-Silicon substrate non-classical structures such as Double Gate MOSFETs Presents topics that will prepare readers for long-term developments in the field Includes solutions in every chapter Can be tailored for use among students and professionals of many levels Comes with MATLAB code downloads for independent practice and advanced study
This book is essential for students specializing in VLSI Design and indispensible for design professionals in the microelectronics and VLSI industries. Written to serve a number of experience levels, it can be used either as a course textbook or practitioner's reference.

Written specifically for executives and MBA students, the third edition of this successful textbook provides a step-by-step guide to designing an organization, from diagnosis, to design and implementation. It provides comprehensive coverage of the key aspects of organizational design, including goals, strategy, process, people, coordination, control, and incentives. Following a new diamond model, fully tested in practice, the book guides readers through an integrated methodology for organizational assessment and planning. It includes a new chapter on project managing organizational change on a practical level, new case studies, extended discussions of new organizational forms, architecture design and knowledge systems, and new practical steps for implementation and change. An accompanying website gives free access to a selection of excel models, and features additional case studies, worksheets and templates, and a downloadable questionnaire for analyzing and diagnosing current organizations.
Frogs, minnows, snails, ducks, catfish, and muskrats are a few of the animals that make up a lake and pond food web. But do you know why mosquitoes, mold, water lilies, and bacteria are important too? Or how humans can change the health of a lake or a pond? See lake and pond food webs in action in this fascinating book.
<b>Unique interdisciplinary approach enables readers to overcome complex design challenges</b> <p> Integrating concepts from chemistry, physics, materials science, metallurgy, and ceramics, <i>Principles of Inorganic Materials Design, Second Edition</i> offers a unique interdisciplinary approach that enables readers to grasp the complexities of inorganic materials. The book provides a solid foundation in the principles underlying the design of inorganic materials and then offers the guidance and tools needed to create specific materials with desired macroscopic properties. <p> <i>Principles of Inorganic Materials Design, Second Edition</i> begins with an introduction to structure at the microscopic level and then progresses to smaller-length scales. Next, the authors explore both phenomenological and atomistic-level descriptions of transport properties, the metal nonmetal transition, magnetic and dielectric properties, optical properties, and mechanical properties. Lastly, the book covers phase equilibria, synthesis, and nanomaterials. <p> <b>Special features include:</b> <ul> <li> <p> Introduction to the CALPHAD method, an important, but often overlooked topic <li> <p> More worked examples and new end-of-chapter problems to help ensure mastery of the concepts <li> <p> Extensive references to the literature for more in-depth coverage of particular topics <li> <p> Biographies introducing twentieth-century pioneers in the field of inorganic materials science </ul> <p> This <i>Second Edition</i> has been thoroughly revised and updated, incorporating the latest findings and featuring expanded discussions of such key topics as microstructural aspects, density functional theory, dielectric properties, mechanical properties, and nanomaterials. <p> Armed with this text, students and researchers in inorganic and physical chemistry, physics, materials science, and engineering will be equipped to overcome today's complex design challenges. This textbook is recommended for senior-level undergraduate and graduate course work.
