The website features student interactive tutorials, and an Instructor Manual supplements teaching with a wealth of classroom exercises.
Fundamentals of Petroleum Refining provides a thorough and balanced introduction to refinery engineering topics, from basic concepts and unit operations to overall refinery economics, planning and control. Based on the fundamentals of thermodynamics and kinetics, the text develops the scientific background needed to understand refinery operations, provides an in depth description of major refinery processes, and then assimilates an integrated refinery by focusing on the economic and operational aspects for enhancing performance and profitability.
Fundamentals of California Litigation for Paralegals offers a complete understanding of the litigation process from the time the client walks into the office through trial and post-judgment. Its balanced approach does not oversimplify the process, but covers the right amount of rules and procedures for students to embrace. Tailored to the California rules, each chapter references the specific California statute where further information can be found. California forms are included throughout the text. Abundant study aids make the material highly accessible and include bold-face terms defined in the glossary; numerous examples, charts, checklists, and sample documents; chapter overviews and summaries; and review questions. The text allows instructors flexibility in choosing topics while still providing a full overview for students. A litigation file at the end contains sample motions, pleadings, and discovery requests that are part of a case. A workbook on CD that comes with the text has five case scenarios based on California law for use in completing assignments and as case studies in class. The updated Fifth Edition includes amendments to the Code of Civil Procedure, California Rules of Court, and Judicial Council forms. The text now incorporates social media tools as part of a litigation practice.
Bracquemont provides an articulate analysis shaped by his experiences with many different Christian denominations, positive and negative experiences, a struggling working-class life, Asperger's Syndrome (on the autistic spectrum), and a positive faith that believes firmly that Jesus provides not only eternal glory for those who accept him in faith but that Jesus, the gospel, and the Bible can also transform both individuals and the world. Bracquemont believes that God fervently loves all his human creatures, that God cares about the whole of human existence, and that one should not have to choose between the eternal and social elements of the gospel but that both are important. His disability has caused him to appreciate both the social and eternal elements of the gospel. He also feels that the dichotomy between the social and eternal has resulted in an incomplete and imbalanced presentation of the gospel from both sides, to the detriment of both Christianity and the world. Though Jesus lived two-thousand years ago, his teachings, his love, his holiness, and his purity are just as relevant and needed as they ever were in the past. Jesus, in this sense, is indeed timeless and relevant to every generation. This book is about justice and charity alike; about faith (without which no person can please God) and virtue alike.
This newly-translated book takes the reader from the basic principles and conservation laws of hydrodynamics to the description of general atmospheric circulation. Among the topics covered are the Kelvin, Ertel and Rossby-Obukhov invariants, quasi-geostrophic equation, thermal wind, singular Helmholtz vortices, derivation of the Navier-Stokes equation, Kolmogorov's flow, hydrodynamic stability, and geophysical boundary layers. Generalizing V. Arnold's approach to hydrodynamics, the author ingeniously brings in an analogy of Coriolis forces acting on fluid with motion of the Euler heavy top and shows how this is used in the analysis of general atmospheric circulation.
This book is based on popular graduate and undergraduate courses given by F.V.Dolzhansky at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and is the result of the author's highly acclaimed work in Moscow's Laboratory of Geophysical Hydrodynamics. Each chapter is full of examples and figures, exercises and hints, motivating and illustrating both theoretical and experimental results. The exposition is comprehensive yet user-friendly in engaging and exploring the broad range of topics for students and researchers in mathematics, physics, meteorology and engineering.
