Transport Phenomena In Porous Media

RRP $574.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

This monograph presents an integrated perspective of the wide range of phenomena and processes applicable to the study of transport of species in porous materials. In order to formulate the entire range of porous media and their uses, this book gives the basics of continuum mechanics, thermodynamics, seepage and consolidation and diffusion, including multiscale homogenization methods. The particular structure of the book has been chosen because it is essential to be aware of the true properties of porous materials particularly in terms of nano, micro and macro mechanisms.

This book is of pedagogical and practical importance to the fields covered by civil, environmental, nuclear and petroleum engineering and also in chemical physics and geophysics as it relates to radioactive waste disposal, geotechnical engineering, mining and petroleum engineering and chemical engineering.

Pumps, Channels And Transporters

RRP $283.99

The members of the Analytical Science community and users of analytical tools are now becoming more involved in biological issues by developing new methodologies to study complex biochemical problems such as how ions traverse membranes. These methodologies include the use of spectroscopic, electrochemical and radioactivity-based techniques along with some new cutting edge technologies, based on the observation of single molecules. This book describes these experimental methods for investigating the function of pumps, channels and transporters.

The book is divided into four parts; the first is an introduction on the history of ion channels, pumps and transporters, their basic features and biological roles. The second part, Electrical Techniques, describes techniques taking advantage of the fact that ion channels, pumps and transporters produce an electrical current which can be detected with highly sensitive instruments. Next, Spectroscopic Techniques, details the use of light to probe the macromolecular nature of ion channels, pumps and transporters. Finally the book covers techniques which don't fall into either the electrical or spectroscopic category, i.e., radioactivity-based techniques as well as theoretical simulations.


Image-guided Hypofractionated Stereotactic Radiosurgery

RRP $654.99

This book offers an up-to-date, practical guide to hypofractionated SRT for brain and spine metastases, as well as other tumor types such as glioma and benign tumors. The recent development of hypofractionated SRT, which calls for 1 to 5 fractions of high dose radiation to be delivered using special equipment, has resulted in the need for education on practice guidelines. This how-to guide emphasizes the pros and cons of hypofractionated SRT compared to single fraction radiosurgery.


Drugs, Alcohol And Sport

The use of alcohol and drugs seems contradictory to the popular ideal of sport as a healthy moral and physical pursuit, and yet it has been present in sports culture since clubs first became the focus for competitive games and social gatherings. Charting the changing patterns of the use of drugs and alcohol since the nineteenth century, this is a critical history that relates substance consumption and regulation to social relations of power: sports men and women almost revelling in their deviance and leaving the moral agonising to their supposed a superiorsa (TM). In addition, certain substances have become at various times the focus of heightened controversy, raising questions about the symbolism of the body in sport, its uses and behaviours and associated perceptions. These questions are tackled here in a lively discussion on the social construction of drug and alcohol use, ideal as a catalyst for debate or as an informed introduction to the hottest topic in sport today.

This book was previously published as a special issue of Sport in History.
