Braiding Technology and Machinery

  • 2nd Edition
  • December 1, 2099
  • Yordan Kyosev
  • English
Braiding Technology and Machinery: Principles, Design and Processes, Second Edition reviews the basic principles, design and processes used in braiding, while introducing the latest computational methods and applications. Braided fabrics are made by interlacing yarns or strips of fabric, producing structures for technical textile applications from medical sutures to cables for anchoring ships. This fully updated second edition explains how to use the latest computer-controlled braiding machines for higher quality and efficiency, and also features added detail with new colour images throughout. Innovative applications in medicine, composites, sport, and filtration are also described, alongside established specialised braiding techniques such as spiral braiding and lace technology.

Handbook of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of Textiles and Clothing

  • 2nd Edition
  • December 1, 2099
  • Subramanian Senthilkannan Muthu
  • English
Life cycle assessment (LCA) is used to evaluate the environmental impacts of textile products, from raw material extraction, through fibre processing, textile manufacture, distribution and use, to disposal or recycling. LCA is an important tool for the research and development process, product and process design, and labelling of textiles and clothing. Handbook of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of Textiles and Clothing 2e systematically covers the LCA process with a substantially expanded range of examples and case studies. New topics now covered include virtual carbon and energy flows in the global textile trade, ethical issues in LCA, and up-cycling and reuse of garments. Part one of the book covers key indicators and processes in LCA, from carbon and ecological footprints to disposal, re-use and recycling. Part two then discusses a broad range of LCA applications in the textiles and clothing industry.

A Chemometrics Guide for Chromatographers

  • 1st Edition
  • Volume 34
  • February 1, 2099
  • Gabriel Vivo-Truyols
  • English
A Chemometrics Guide for Chromatographers, Volume 33 in the Data Handling in Science and Technology series, helps bring chemometrics and statistics to the chromatographic field, with the aim of making the statistical tools understandable and useful for this community. There are excellent textbooks about chemometrics and chromatography available on the market, but none are devoted solely to bringing both fields together in a simple language. The nature of the data arising from chromatography deserves special attention (e.g., data alignment, hyphenation or two-dimensional chromatography) and is thoroughly covered in this comprehensive resource, along with other specialized chapters. Over recent decades, chemometricians have been busy developing algorithms and smart statistical techniques to (i) Optimize analytical instruments and (ii) Extract the maximum information out of the data generated by the instruments. It is no longer possible for separation scientists and chemometricians to work in isolation, as both spheres of knowledge must go hand-in-hand.

Solid-Liquid Adsorption

  • 1st Edition
  • December 1, 2029
  • Hai Nguyen Tran + 2 more
  • English
Solid-Liquid Adsorption: How to Do Correct Batch Experiments and Analyze Data provides a critical review of available literature, showing the most frequently made interpretation errors and providing methodological guidance on the practical use of fundamental concepts in adsorption science and technology. Adsorption science and technology is a well-established field with a broad range of applications. Nevertheless, the handover of knowledge and experience from expert seniors is not always optimal. This means that incorrect results and relevant mistakes are not made public. This book shares both successes and failures, helping new researchers avoid past mistakes.

Green Sources in Eco-nanotechnology

  • 1st Edition
  • July 1, 2029
  • Mohammad S. Sajadi
  • English
Green Sources in Eco-nanotechnology provides a broad overview on the applicability of nanotechnology and the associated risks of various nanomaterials. The book presents safe, economic and eco-friendly methods and natural sources that prevent or reduce possible risks for the environment and human health. New concepts and principals of clean nanotechnology derived from nature–eco-nanotechnology–are introduced, along with a detailed discussion on the chemical, physical and biological properties of nanomaterials, including their pharmaceutical, medicinal, industrial and economical significance to improve human life and protect natural resources and ecosystems.

Surfactants in Slurry Stabilisation and Transportation

  • 1st Edition
  • July 1, 2029
  • Ranjan Kumar Mohapatra + 1 more
  • English
Surfactants in Slurry Stabilisation and Transportation: Preparation and Characterization describes methods for the isolation and characterization of natural surfactants and their potential as slurry stabilizers. It also describes the characterization of physical and chemical properties of slurries, in relation to their particle distribution. It also includes slurry preparation and characterization by using different rheological parameters and discusses mechanisms of stabilization of different slurries. The book includes a comparative cost analysis and offers rheological modelling and Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis of different slurry systems.

Surface Engineering of Graphene for Electrocatalysis

  • 1st Edition
  • February 1, 2029
  • Aneeya Kumar Samantara + 2 more
  • English
Surface Engineering of Graphene for Electrocatalysis: A Unique Process of Graphene Surface Functionalization for Sustainability provides a detailed knowledge-base on the historical evolution of graphene, its inherent physicochemical properties, various state-of-the-art synthetic protocols and subsequent surface engineering (functionalization and composite formation with different nanostructured materials) through feasible physico-chemical processes. Keeping in mind the urgency of electrocatalysis for sustainable energy, the book fundamentally discusses electrocatalysis, including electrochemical measurement techniques, reaction mechanisms, technical parameters for catalyst performance evaluation and the reported electrocatalysts.In addition, the book presents the impact of surface engineering of graphene on electrocatalytic systems and includes theoretical calculations/discussions in support of experimental findings that will improve understanding.
