Overview

ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS IN SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT is an invaluable resource for today's engineering student. Focusing on pressing contemporary issues, the text puts product design in the context of models of sustainability. Relevant case studies from across the globe will be of interest to engineers in training, and active learning exercises in each chapter help students learn to apply theory to real world situations. The book is appropriate for all junior/senior level engineering design courses and courses that cover sustainability in engineering practice. Instructors will benefit from having the first book to bring sustainability science, environmental impact analysis, and models of sustainability to the undergraduate level.

Bradley Striebig, James Madison University

Professor Striebig received his PhD from The Pennsylvania State University, engineering school. He has served as editor on major journals in his subject area such as the Journal of Engineering for Sustainable Development. He has led major, funded, award-winning research activities, including the U.S. EPA study in West Africa. Professor Striebig has written several book chapters, numerous peer-reviewed journal articles, and presented at many peer-reviewed conferences.

Adebayo A. Ogundipe, James Madison University

Professor Ogundipe has previously held academic positions at Stevens Institute of Technology and the Polytechnic Institute of New York University. He has a Ph.D from Stevens Institute of Technology. His current areas of specialization and scholarship include Life Cycle Analysis, Industrial Ecology, and developing methods for assessing sustainability.

Maria Papadakis, James Madison University

Professor Papadakis is a political economist with expertise in energy management and the role of energy in sustainable development. Dr. Papadakis' research has been published in specialized reports of the National Science Foundation, and in such journals as Evaluation and Program Planning, Journal of Technology Transfer, The Scientist, and the International Journal of Technology Management.

"This book presents sufficient background to enable students to appreciate the larger issue while emphasizing the quantitative skills necessary to solve engineering problems... I like that there are a balance of journal/essay response questions as well as plain quantitative questions. I also like that questions encourage students to seek data from local sources. For instance, they need to log into their local utility web page to get data about municipal water usage ... Author adds big-picture perspective to the chapters."

“The easy introduction - no, the logically sequenced introduction of mathematical concepts is excellent. They are grounded in real-life data leaving the reader not wondering 'where this equation cane from'. The flow of chapters is good… text is very readable. The homework problems are also a strength. I would expect to see 10-15 problems, but the authors did a great job of expanding and offering a wide range of excellent problems of a great range of difficulty.”

"I'm impressed with how many examples are provided in the chapters…for my upper-level course I would definitely choose the more challenging problems like the active learning exercises and open-ended problems, but the simpler problems would be good for a lower-level class…detailed examples are a big plus.”
