About

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.

Efficacy and Outcomes

Reviews

"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."

— Brett Tempest

“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.”

— Kenneth Reid

"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.”

— Junko Munakata Marr
