Editors: Victoria M. Petrova
Book Description:
The broad discipline of engineering encompasses a range of scientific, mathematical, economic, social, and practical knowledge to design and build structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes that safely realize solutions to the needs of society. This book covers leading-edge research in a cross-section of fields centering on engineering applications including current research data on rock mass characterization for the design of tunnel supports; carbon nanotubes for aerospace engineering applications; launch vehicle dynamics and lubrication systems for spacecraft applications; developing environmentally sustainable printed circuit boards and energy saving designs for office building construction.
