Value-added Management with Design of Experiments
In this book, the author points out that anyone who performs a management function, must have some reliable method of adding value to the products and services of the organization. One way to do this is by properly understanding and using Design of Experiments (DoE). This book is not a DoE text. The main emphasis of the book is to expand the horizons of those who manage, in order for them to see new possibilities of adding value themselves, and of managing value-added operations. It shows how to use this versatile, effective and efficient tool in applications beyond traditional manufacturing and design engineering and how DoE can be used as a unifying theory throughout an organization. This book should be of interest to practising industrial and manufacturing engineers, quality professionals, senior undergraduate and graduate IE students, and MBAs.

Introduction to the Thermodynamics of Solids
Bridging a gap in the literature, Professor Ericksen has drawn on his experience in research on solids to devise a series of lectures for graduates that introduce and illustrate uses of various important ideas with analysis which can be done using elementary mathematics. Simple strategies are discussed for thermoelastic bars and an ideal gas-solid mixture. Illustrative examples of thermodynamic stability theory include rudimentary analysis of cold-drawing in polymers, martensitic transformations in plates, instabilities in rubber balloons and sheets, peeling tapes, breaking bars, buckling of beams and instabilities produced by electromagnetic fields in liquid crystals. Non-equilibrium theory is illustrated by head conduction in rigid and deformable bars, including a fairly common way of using the Clausius-Duhem inequality to obtain thermodynamic restrictions on constitutive equations. Also covered is some elementary one-dimensional theory of shock waves and slower-moving phase boundaries. Finally, drawing on all these experiences, the last chapter treats general ideas in a more abstract way.

Thermal Radiation Heat Transfer
Providing a comprehensive overview of the radiative behavior and properties of materials, the fifth edition of this classic textbook describes the physics of radiative heat transfer, development of relevant analysis methods, and associated mathematical and numerical techniques. Retaining the salient features and fundamental coverage that have made it popular, Thermal Radiation Heat Transfer, Fifth Edition has been carefully streamlined to omit superfluous material, yet enhanced to update information with extensive references. Includes four new chapters on Inverse Methods, Electromagnetic Theory, Scattering and Absorption by Particles, and Near-Field Radiative Transfer Keeping pace with significant developments, this book begins by addressing the radiative properties of blackbody and opaque materials, and how they are predicted using electromagnetic theory and obtained through measurements. It discusses radiative exchange in enclosures without any radiating medium between the surfaces-and where heat conduction is included within the boundaries. The book also covers the radiative properties of gases and addresses energy exchange when gases and other materials interact with radiative energy, as occurs in furnaces. To make this challenging subject matter easily understandable for students, the authors have revised and reorganized this textbook to produce a streamlined, practical learning tool that: * Applies the common nomenclature adopted by the major heat transfer journals * Consolidates past material, reincorporating much of the previous text into appendices * Provides an updated, expanded, and alphabetized collection of references, assembling them in one appendix * Offers a helpful list of symbols With worked-out examples, chapter-end homework problems, and other useful learning features, such as concluding remarks and historical notes, this new edition continues its tradition of serving both as a comprehensive textbook for those studying and applying radiative transfer, and as a repository of vital literary references for the serious researcher.

Bioprinting: Principles And Applications
At labs around the world, researchers have been experimenting with bioprinting, first just to see whether it was possible to push cells through a printhead without killing them (in most cases it is), and then trying to make cartilage, bone, skin, blood vessels, small bits of liver and other tissues. There are other ways to try to engineer tissue - one involves creating a scaffold out of plastics or other materials and adding cells to it. In theory, at least, a bioprinter has advantages in manipulating control of the placement of cells and other components to mimic natural structures.But just as the claims made for 3-D printing technology sometimes exceed the reality, the field of bioprinting has seen its share of hype. The reality is that, although bioprinting researchers have made great strides, there are many formidable obstacles to overcome. Nobody who has any credibility claims they can print organs, or believes in their heart of hearts that that will happen in the next 20 years, but for operations like hip replacement, advance in Bio-printing has made customization of certain body parts possible.This book will start from the concept of Tissue Engineering, covering various approaches in Scaffolds for tissue engineering, Bioprinting techniques and Materials for bioprinting, Cell processing, 3D cell culture techniques, Computational design and simulation, multi-disciplinary approaches in bioprinting and finally cover the applications of bioprinting.
