Water Hammer

Practical Solutions

 

Butterworth-Heinemann, 1995.

ISBNs 9780340645970

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Water hammer, or the study of fluid transient behaviour, is one of the most common problems in the water engineering community. This book covers the many causes and solutions in a practical way and is an essential reference for all those concerned with the flow of liquids, not just water, in pipe systems. It follows on from the authors' previous monograph on the problems and solutions of water hammer and presents common problems in the form of case studies.

This is an interesting and useful read for practising engineers working in this area and it will enable them to make comparisons with their own problems. Also the practical nature of the book makes it useful for civil engineering departmental libraries and departments where hydraulic design is taught.

Zoonotic Viruses in Northern Eurasia

Taxonomy and Ecology

 

Academic Press, 2015.

ISBNs 9780128017425

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Zoonotic Viruses of Northern Eurasia: Taxonomy and Ecology provides a review of modern data of the taxonomy, distribution, and ecology of zoonotic viruses in the ecosystems of Northern Eurasia. With climate changes, increasing population density of arthropod vectors and vertebrate hosts, development of unused lands, transferences of viruses by birds, bats, infected humans, and animals, vectors allow virus populations to adapt to the new environment. This leads to the appearance of emerging or re-emerging infections.

This book presents data about circulation and evolution of influenza viruses, tick-borne encephalitis virus, West Nile virus, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus, hantaviruses, Sindbis virus, California encephalitis group viruses and other pathogenic viruses as well as of novel viruses classified for the first time using next-generation sequence.

  • Features summarized data about the circulation of approximately 80 viruses isolated in natural foci of Northern Eurasia
  • Provides descriptions of the main ecosystems of Northern Eurasia in the context of the ecology of viruses with environmental factors
  • Delineates the potential impact of climate change for the distribution of viruses
  • Includes virus taxonomy, ecology, distribution and pathogenicity for humans and animals
