Total Colour Management in Textiles
Publisher: Woodhead | Pages: 234 | 2006-01 | ISBN 1855739232 | PDF | 2 MB

Keeping industrial applications in the forefront, Total Colour Management provides basic yet comprehensive knowledge on the many aspects of colour management. Divided into two sections, the book explores the separate processes of measuring and managing colour. The book touches briefly of theoretical aspects but is firmly rooted in the practical. It delineates how to implement colour management strategies to the working environment. Each section includes references for further information and discussions of future trends. Written by a panel of specialists guided by expert editorship, the book gives readers a solid working knowledge of how to approach colour management.
Total colour management will prove invaluable for individuals from a variety of disciplines and organisation levels in colour management, colour quality monitoring and evaluation as well as for graphic designers, merchandisers, product development specialists and anyone who uses colour in their work. It is also of use to academics and students researching textiles, fashion, design, fine arts, or any colour related subjects.

Plastic Pipe Systems: Failure Investigation and Diagnosis
Mehdi Farshad, ” Plastic Pipe Systems: Failure Investigation and Diagnosis “
Elsevier Science | ISBN: 1856174964 | 2006-10-05 | 224 pages | PDF | 19 Mb

A diagnostic manual for pipe-doctors

Product Description
Industrial and domestic piping is increasingly made from various plastics and composites, and these materials withstand heavy use over long periods. They are, however, affected by environmental and other factors over time and can degrade, causing major problems within piping systems. Farshad’s book deals with why plastic pipes and systems fail, and with how to investigate and diagnose such failures. Pipes may buckle, fracture, change in dimensions and colour, blister and delaminate, corrode through stress, be abraded and obstructed: all these cause problems and lead to loss of efficient operation of a system. The author’s experience is backed up by a large data-base of results

* Wide target audience
* The only book covering the whole subject
* Unique approach based on long experience

J. Spence, “Pressure Vessel Design: Concepts and principles”
Taylor & Francis | 1994 | ISBN: 0419190805 | 496 pages | Html | 10,4 MB

This book derives from a 3 day intensive course on Pressure Vessel Design given regularly in the UK and around the world since 1986. It is written by experts in their field and although the main thrust of the Course has been directed to BS5500, the treatment of the material is of a general nature thus providing insight into other national standards.

Handbook of Chemical Technology and Pollution Control, 3rd Edition, Third Edition by: Martin B. B. Hocking
Publisher: Academic Press | 3 edition (18 Jan 2006) | ISBN: 0120887967 | Pages: 830 | PDF | 32.7 MB

The Handbook of Chemical Technology and Pollution Control (3rd Edition) provides a detailed review of the chemistry and operating conditions of many of the present large-scale chemical processes important to our economy and high standards of living. The processes that could lead to emissions affecting our air, soil, and water are considered, together with ways in which it may be possible to reduce or eliminate these pollutants. Focusing on cleaner production concepts without neglecting ‘end of pipe’ measures. With an increase in the awareness of corporate and social responsibility among business and industry leaders, the pressure to reduce harmful emissions and the desire to increase efficiencies and energy utilization, this book provides an essential resource. Suitable for researchers, practitioners and postgraduate students in the fields of chemical and biochemical engineering and environmental science, as well as government monitoring and regulatory agencies and industry leaders who want to stay one step ahead, this book will be a valuable addition to any library.

* Integrated treatment of chemical technology with emission control chemistry
* Introductory outline of the causes and effects of air and water pollution chemistry
* Outline of the operating features and efficiency of basic emission control devices
* Historical background of developments in industrial chemistry to 2004 in a single volume
* Organized for easy access to chemical technology, new developments, or emission control details
* Referenced to current additional sources of information in each area covered
* Review questions provide working experience with the material provided

Donald W. Benbow and Hugh W. Broome, “The Certified Reliability Engineer Handbook”
ASQ Quality Press | 2008 | ISBN: 0873897218 | 320 pages | PDF | 2,8 MB

Reliability engineers are professionals who understand the principles of performance evaluation and prediction to improve product/systems safety, reliability, and maintainability. This handbook s chapters and sections match the Body of Knowledge (BOK) specified for ASQ s Reliability Engineer certification, which includes design review and control; prediction, estimation, and apportionment methodology; failure mode effects and analysis; the planning, operation, and analysis of reliability testing and field failures, including mathematical modeling; understanding human factors in reliability; and the ability to develop and administer reliability information systems for failure analysis, design and performance improvement, and reliability program management over the entire product life cycle. This handbook provides reliability engineers with the theory and tools needed to meet ever-increasing reliability requirements. An accompanying CD contains supplementary problems covering each chapter and a simulated exam that has problems distributed among the chapters according to the scheme published in the BOK.
