About this book

This book explains the use of cloud computing systems for engineering applications to satisfy the need for enterprise level, state-of-the-art computational capacities at an affordable cost. As huge costs are involved in the maintenance and timely renovation of computational capabilities, particularly for projects that require significant computational capacity, cloud services can achieve considerable savings for users and organizations engaged in engineering research and development. Dr. Stradi-Granados explains how to extract a maximum value from every dollar invested in cloud computer server. The types of facilities located around the world that lease their resources to customers interested in reducing the internal overhead and implementation time. The volume features chapters on model generation, motion studies, and prototyping is ideal for students, researchers, practitioners, and facility's managers across a range of engineering domains.

About the authors

Dr. Benito A. Stradi-Granados has 22 years of experience in higher education. He is in charge of the training of faculty members in Cloud Computing at the Institute of Technology of Costa Rica. A set of training sessions are provided on a semester basis to foster the use of Cloud Technologies. Through the Office of the Vice President for Research provides computational resources and support to faculty members, and to graduate students and industry as needed. He also teaches in the Departments of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry at the University of Costa Rica where he imparts classes on Process Control & Instrumentation and Process Design. He is author of a number of publications on the application of mathematical methods to process separations and financial markets. Professor Stradi-Granados has a long history of extension and collaboration with industry. He spent two years as an Assistant Professor in the Audubon Sugar Institute at Louisiana State University working on the biochemical and thermochemical conversion of biomass into fuels, both projects sponsored by the DOE. He holds the degrees of B. Sc. (U. of Missouri, USA) and Ph. D. (U. of Notre Dame, USA) in Chemical Engineering, a M. E. Sc. in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering from University of Western Ontario (Canada) and a M. Sc. (U. of Essex, UK) in Finance. A graduate from the UK's Chevening Program and Coca Cola's Latin America 2000 Fellowship Program, he continues to promote the new talent and leaders to guide industries and government into a sustainable challenging future.
