ISBNs 9788481749496

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (es):

  • Revisada y con nuevos colaboradores provenientes de todos los campos relacionados con el dolor, esta nueva edición recoge cada aspecto de la medicina del dolor. Documenta cualquier conocimiento sobre la neurofisiología, la psicología, la valoración y el tratamiento de cada tipo de dolor, y describe todas las opciones disponibles hoy día en farmacología, cirugía, electroestimulación, fisioterapia y tratamiento psicológico. Los más de 125 autores, verdaderas autoridades en la medicina del dolor, garantizan que esta obra es la referencia más actual, experta y completa en dolor, recogiendo la útlima información de un campo en rápido crecimiento.
  • Entre las innovaciones de esta edición, se encuentran avances en este campo como los descubrimientos que siguieron a la identificación de la estructura molecular del receptor de la capsaicina TRPV1 y las sólidas pruebas derivadas de estudios epidemiológicos que han puesto de manifiesto la magnitud del problema clínico del dolor. En correspondencia con estos avances, se han añadido nuevos capítulos que tratan contenidos que van desde la adicción a analgésicos hasta la medicina del dolor basada en la evidencia y los ensayos clínicos. Otra novedad es la inclusión de recientes avances en farmacología que afectan a anticonvulsivantes, antidepresivos, relajantes musculares y derivados del cannabis. Asimismo, la sección dedicada al dolor a sido ampliada de 1 a 4 capítulos. También las técnicas anestésicas han sido ampliadas.
  • En esta nueva edición, las opciones terapéuticas se presentan en un formato llamativo para que puedan localizarse rápidamente, y se ofrecen nuevas ilustraciones en color para facilitar la representación gráfica de los conceptos más importantes.
  • E-dition con acceso a la página web de la obra en inglés, donde se pueden encontrar: el libro completo, actualizado cada semana bajo la supervisión de los autores; imágenes descargables para su uso en presentaciones, y una base de datos, Mosby’s Drug Consult, con la información farmacológica disponible más actual, completa y precisa.

ISBNs 9781760460235

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): This is a collection of essays in honour of eminent Professor Robert O’Neill. Each chapter was written by prominent academics and practitioners who have had a professional connection with Professor O’Neill during his long and distinguished career. The overarching themes running throughout the book are war, strategy and history. All the essays are shaped by the role that Professor O’Neill has played over the last 50 years in the debates in Australia, Europe and the US. This book covers not only Professor O’Neill’s impressive career, but also the evolution of strategy in practice, and of strategic studies as an internationally recognised academic discipline.

Waste Engine Oils

Rerefining and Energy Recovery

 

Elsevier, 2006.

ISBNs 9780444522023

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Waste Engine Oils presents a complete description of the field of engine used oils, widely collected in the networks of services-stations and garages. It describes the manufacture of base oils in refineries, and mentions the main additives playing an essential role in the quality of the marketed finished oils. The organization of the different systems of collecting in order to obtain a waste oil regenerable or used as fuel are explained.


This book covers the main operations of physical and chemical treatments required in waste oil regeneration by covering the fundamental principles techniques such as vacuum distillation, solvent deasphalting, and ultrafiltration. A wide part is dedicated to applications with the description of about twenty processes. In addition, the book describes several types of energetic valorizations which concern a quite important fraction of the collected oil volume.

* Comprehensive approach of the waste oil valorization
* Overview of chemical engineering operations applied to waste oil
* Objective view of the given information on a subject giving rise to competitiveness between the two routes of volorization

Waste Minimization and Cost Reduction for the Process Industries

 

William Andrew Publishing, 1995.

ISBNs 9780815513889

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): The purpose of this book is to provide a base of information and analysis to assist in implementation of the policy of reducing and/or minimizing hazardous waste generation in manufacturing and more specifically in the process industries. What is the significance of reducing the generation of all process wastes? This book examines the technical nature of waste reduction and the extent to which waste reduction can likely be implemented. Also explored is the extent to which technology itself, as well as information and resources, is a barrier to waste reduction. In what ways are waste reduction decisions dependent on specific circumstances? Can the amount of feasible waste reduction be estimated?

Auditing of manufacturing and unit operations and processes are particularly significant and useful in the chemical process industries (food, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, fertilizer, petrochemicals, etc.) since it is estimated that these industries account for more than half of the hazardous wastes generated. This book presents a compilation of complete information on potential sources of waste loss or generation through technical inspection. Also presented are calculation methods for determining air-waste-solid wastes material balances, informational requirements and waste reduction analysis.

The reader should find the book useful in the areas of auditing and waste minimization. It is replete with useful information as well as specific case histories, which should make it a practical tool for the user.

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.
