Advances In Wind Turbine Blade Design And Materials

Wind energy is becoming highly popular in the area of renewable energy, with wind energy being forecast to provide up to 8% of the world’s consumption of electricity by 2021.

Handbook Of Recycled Concrete And Demolition Waste

The civil engineering sector accounts for a considerable percentage of global material and energy consumption and is a key contributor of waste material.

Biomass Combustion Science, Technology And Engineering

The utilisation of biomass is increasingly important for low- or zero-carbon power generation. Developments in conventional power plant fuel flexibility allow for both direct biomass combustion and co-firing with fossil fuels, while the integration of advanced technologies facilitates conversion of a wide range of biomass feedstocks into more readily combustible fuel. Biomass combustion science, technology and engineering reviews the science and technology of biomass combustion, conversion and utilisation.

Eco-Efficient Concrete

Eco-efficient concrete is a comprehensive guide to the characteristics and environmental performance of key concrete types.

The Biogas Handbook

With the increasing pressure increasing to use wastes and residues effectively and sustainably, the production of biogas represents one of the most important routes towards reaching national and international renewable energy targets.

Radioactive Waste Management And Contaminated Site Clean-Up

Radioactive waste management is highly critical with regards to the usage of radioisotopes in medicine, research and industry and to cleaning up materials in nuclear weapon programmes.

Materials' Ageing And Degradation In Light Water Reactors

Light water reactors (LWRs) are the predominant class of nuclear power reactors in operation today; however, ageing and degradation can influence both their performance and lifetime.

Electrical Drives For Direct Drive Renewable Energy Systems

Wind turbine gearboxes present key reliability issues, resulting in great interest in the present development of gearless direct-drive wind energy systems. Offering high reliability, high efficiency and low maintenance, developments in these direct-drive systems point the way to the next generation of wind power, and electrical drives for direct drive renewable energy systems is an authoritative guide to their design, development and operation.
