Discusses new engineering approaches as well as energy and environmental policies for combating global warming
Presents the steps that should be taken, the strategies that should be applied, and the policies that should be developed for reducing the effects of global warming
Discusses the relationship between global warming and thermodynamics
Discusses the role that energy management and conservation play in reducing global warming
Analyzes the following sources of energy in terms of technology and applications, modeling and analysis, sustainability and global warming: solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, hydropower, biofuel energy, hydrogen energy, clean coal and nuclear energy; it also provides recommendations for best practices for these sources of energy
Global Warming: Engineering Solutions goes beyond discussing the definition and causes of climate change, and offers concrete solutions for solving global warming. Innovative and forward-thinking engineering solutions are needed to tackle global warming’s threat to the planet, and this book offers numerous methods to address global warming’s identified causes.
Drawing upon the collective knowledge of renowned experts, Ibrahim Dincer, Arif Hepbasil, Adnan Midilli and T. Hikmet Karakoc have assembled a wide ranging treatise on engineering solutions to global warming that includes:
Ideas for correcting carbon dioxide and other emission pollution
Exploring the relationship between global warming and thermodynamics
Examining the sustainability and practicality of the most prevalent forms of clean energy.
Global Warming: Engineering Solutions explores the major threats of global warming from an engineering perspective, explicating practical deployments of systems that could be implemented and work towards staving off global climate change. This book is a must-read for any researchers and engineers interested in gaining an applicable knowledge of how to prevent and control global warming through engineering.
