Ecosystems of Resilience Practices: Contributions for Sustainability and Climate Change Adaptation focuses on resilience in action by exploring and providing approaches, perspectives, toolboxes, and theoretical discourses for the improvement and enhancement of territorial and community resilience practices towards sustainability and climate change mitigation/adaptation. The book develops a set of tools and design criteria to support the dissemination of resilience practices. This new toolset will support the expansion and reinforcement of resilience practices and the building of solutions related to climate change. The book is divided into three sections: Section one investigates the contribution this kind of resilience approach could have on sustainable development goals as related to climate change. It also includes other environmental challenges such as ecosystem resilience in the face of climate change. Chapters dedicated to exploring the issues for a renovated governance of territorial transformation processes are included. Section two focuses on the eco-systems of resilience practices characterization, including discourses on international networking of transitions initiatives. Section three presents operative guidelines, instruments, and proposals for the resilience practices "stabilization," "blooming," and "up scaling," aiming at a more effective and consistent contribution of resilience practices in reaching sustainability, adaptation goals, and scenarios at local and global scales.

Micro and Nanofluid Convection with Magnetic Field Effects for Heat and Mass Transfer Applications using MATLAB® examines the performance of micro and nanofluids with various physical effects such as magnetic field, slip effects, radiation and heat sources. Heat and mass transfer enhancement techniques are widely used in many applications in the heating and cooling or freezing process to make possible a reduction in weight and size or enhance performance during heat and mass exchanges. The book covers the two categories of flow techniques, active and passive. It discusses various considerations in the engineering sciences in the melting process, polymer industry and in metallurgy. To be more precise, it may be pointed out that many metal surgical developments involve the cooling of continuous strips or filaments by drawing them through a quiescent fluid, and in that process of drawing, these strips are sometimes stretched. In all these cases, the properties of the final product depend, to a great extent, on the rate of cooling by drawing such strips in an electrically conducting fluid subject to a magnetic field and thermal radiation.
