Mechanics of Fluid Saturated Rocks
Mechanics of Fluid Saturated Rocks presents a current and comprehensive report on this emerging field that bridges the areas of geology and mechanics. It is of direct interest to a wide spectrum of earth scientists and engineers who are concerned with upper-crust mechanics and fluid movements, the most important fluids being oil and water. This authoritative book is the result of a collaborative effort between scientists in academic institutions and industry. It examines important issues such as subsidence, geological fault formation, earthquake faulting, hydraulic fracturing, transport of fluids, and natural and direct applications. Mechanics of Fluid Saturated Rocks provides a unique interdisciplinary viewpoint, as well as case studies, conclusions, and recommendations for further research. Covers the physical, chemical, and mechanical analysis of porous saturated rock deformation on both large and small scales Discusses the latest developments of importance to engineers and geologists Examines natural and direct applications Includes extensive bibliographies for each chapter

Clinical Skills Manual for Maternal Child Nursing Care
This colorful skills atlas servers as a portable, quick-reference to the step-by-step nursing procedures nurses need to know. The manual guides you through more than 85 skills using full-color photographs and rationales. It also includes chapters on physical assessment, special pain management techniques, cardiorespiratory care, administration of medications, including intravenous access, and other information useful to nurses in the clinical setting. Margin boxes and tables with important safety issues, growth and development considerations, teaching for families, and clinical tips are throughout. Appendices provide information on growth grids and calculation of body surface area for medication administration.

Help readers learn to think like nurses and visualize how to care for children To prepare today's students to begin thinking and acting like nurses, Principles of Pediatric Nursing, Seventh Edition presents a foundation of core pediatric nursing principles with an emphasis on growth and development, family-centered care, and health promotion and maintenance. Nursing students often bring an Adult Health mindset to Pediatric Nursing, which can obscure the special considerations needed to effectively care for children. Principles of Pediatric Nursing helps students visualize how to care for children and understand the ways caring for pediatric patients is similar to, and different from, adult patients. Also available with MyNursingLab MyNursingLab is an online self-study and class preparation program designed to engage students and improve results. Its personalized learning path helps students think like nurses as they move beyond memorization to true understanding through application.
Renewable and Efficient Electric Power Systems
A solid, quantitative, practical introduction to a wide range of renewable energy systems—in a completely updated, new edition The second edition of Renewable and Efficient Electric Power Systems provides a solid, quantitative, practical introduction to a wide range of renewable energy systems. For each topic, essential theoretical background is introduced, practical engineering considerations associated with designing systems and predicting their performance are provided, and methods for evaluating the economics of these systems are presented. While the book focuses on the fastest growing, most promising wind and solar technologies, new material on tidal and wave power, small-scale hydroelectric power, geothermal and biomass systems is introduced. Both supply-side and demand-side technologies are blended in the final chapter, which introduces the emerging smart grid. As the fraction of our power generated by renewable resources increases, the role of demand-side management in helping maintain grid balance is explored. Renewable energy systems have become mainstream technologies and are now, literally, big business. Throughout this edition, more depth has been provided on the financial analysis of large-scale conventional and renewable energy projects. While grid-connected systems dominate the market today, off-grid systems are beginning to have a significant impact on emerging economies where electricity is a scarce commodity. Considerable attention is paid to the economics of all of these systems. This edition has been completely rewritten, updated, and reorganized. New material has been presented both in the form of new topics as well as in greater depth in some areas. The section on the fundamentals of electric power has been enhanced, making this edition a much better bridge to the more advanced courses in power that are returning to many electrical engineering programs. This includes an introduction to phasor notation, more emphasis on reactive power as well as real power, more on power converter and inverter electronics, and more material on generator technologies. Realizing that many students, as well as professionals, in this increasingly important field may have modest electrical engineering backgrounds, early chapters develop the skills and knowledge necessary to understand these important topics without the need for supplementary materials. With numerous completely worked examples throughout, the book has been designed to encourage self-instruction. The book includes worked examples for virtually every topic that lends itself to quantitative analysis. Each chapter ends with a problem set that provides additional practice. This is an essential resource for a mixed audience of engineering and other technology-focused individuals.
Privilege and Creative Destruction
In this now-classic work in legal and constitutional theory, Stanley Kutler examines one of the Supreme Court's most celebrated decisions: the right of the state of Massachusetts to erect a free bridge over the Charles River in 1837--even though the state had previously chartered a privately owned toll bridge at the same location.
