In this book, an almost new approach to modern thermodynamics has been applied. One or more useful qualitative discussion statements have been extracted from each equation. These and other important statements were numbered and their titles were situated in an index titled “Hilal and Others’ statements, definitions and rules.” This ensures very quick obtaining of the required statements, rules, definitions, equations, and their theoretical base that will ease readers qualitative discussions and calculations.

Terry L. Koglin

High Speed Rail Planning, Policy and Engineering looks at the question of where a high-speed passenger rail line would be most productive and how it could be profitable. It investigates the political issues confronting high-speed rail funding and location. This first volume looks at recent achievements in high-speed rail, including record high speeds for trains operating with steel wheels on steel rail. It also covers the history of high-speed rail operations, particularly in the United States.

This second volume of High Speed Rail Planning, Policy and Engineering examines one particular potential high-speed rail line in the United States, looking at the possibility of operating high-speed freight trains to help increase revenues to finance the system. The evaluation includes a look at fixed property, track and terminals and patronage.

Most energy systems are suboptimized. Businesses and consumers are so focused on initial costs that they underestimate the effect of operating the energy system over its life. This suboptimization creates a fantastic opportunity to not only make a wise decision financially but also reduce the environmental impact of energy systems. There are three simple tools, known to all mechanical engineers, that when added to traditional thermodynamics, enable an engineer to find the true optimum of an energy system.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) spectroscopies are well-known characterization techniques that reveal the molecular details of a sample non-invasively. The authors discuss how NMR can provide useful information on the microstructure of carbon and its surface properties and explain how C-MEMS/C-NEMS technology can be explored for building improved NMR microdevices.

This book provides an introduction to the state-of-the art in C-MEMS/C-NEMS with an emphasis on lithographically patterned photo-polymers, carbonized in an inert atmosphere. We can expand our perspective considerably by learning from the traditional carbon manufacturing community where researchers deal with a much wider variety of carbon feed stocks such as coal, coconut shell, wood, agricultural wastes, and industrial wastes to make all types of useful carbons.

Fuel cell technology has attracted great interest in recent decades. However, progress in lignocellulosic biomass-energized fuel cells has been slow. This is because that lignocellulosic biomass generally cannot be directly used for electricity generation in a fuel cell with high efficiency. As a renewable resource is available in large quantities in many regions of the world, lignocellulosic biomass can be a promising feedstock for sustainable electricity production using fuel cell technologies.

Christopher Jenkins and Sanjeev Khanna

An Engineering Companion to Mechanics of Materials is the first volume in the Momentum Press collection The Modern Engineering Companions: A Systems Approach. In this book, the authors apply the intuitive “systems approach” to learning, the advantages of which are several. The student first gets a broad overview of the entire subject rather than the narrow piecemeal vision afforded by the traditional “component approach” common to most engineering texts.

Essays in Energy is a collection of a number of essays by the same number of engineers. They show a variety of viewpoints and diversity. This collection is meant to incite and excite conversation among engineers, scientists, and society at large. It would serve as a catalyst for a three-credit course as an introductory engineering subject to non-engineering university students.
