"Perhaps the first of its kind, this book covers physics, chemistry, and applications of graphene relevant to this important and hot research topic. Covering the entire spectrum of graphene-based materials topics, from synthesis to characterization to applications, this state-of-the-art book provides the point of departure for future polymer-based nanocomposites research. The chapter authors, drawn from experts from around the globe, summarize their recent research and provide their perspective for the future by drawing attention to the challenges that must be addressed before research results are fully integrated into the next generation of science and engineering applications. Whether you are a newcomer or a veteran of a few years to this exciting new form of carbon research in the area of polymer nanocomposites, this book provides timely and essential reference reading material"--Provided by publisher
Polymer and Composite Rheology, Second Edition by Rakesh K Gupta( )

"An analysis of polymer and composite rheology. This second edition covers flow properties of thermoplastic and thermoset polymers, and general principles and applications of all phases of polymer rheology, with new chapters on the rheology of particulate and fibre composites. It also includes new and expanded detail on polymer blends and emulsions, foams, reacting systems, and flow through porous media as well as composite processing operations."--Provided by publisher
Fundamentals of polymer engineering by Anil Kumar( )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2019 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This textbook for a first course on polymers assumes some familiarity with thermodynamics and transport phenomena. It covers physical and chemical aspects and the concept of property being determined by structure. It discusses polymer synthesis, associated kinetics and molecular weights and uses this information for reactor design. It covers emulsion polymerization, polymer characterization and thermodynamics, and behavior of polymers as melts, solutions and solids. It examines crystallization, diffusion of and through polymers, polymer processing, and introduces new information on polyolefin technology, biobased plastics, and post-consumer plastic recycling. Chapters updated throughout"
Beekeeping for poverty alleviation and livelihood security by Rakesh K Gupta( )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For decades beekeeping has been used as a tool for rural development, and many examples of the successful establishment of beekeeping cooperatives, associations and companies in poverty regions can be cited. However, until now, no comprehensive book is available that addresses all aspects of how to develop beekeeping for rural development. Beekeeping for Poverty Alleviation and Livelihood Security aims to connect the technological aspects of beekeeping (Volume I) with bee based livelihood and food security in the developing world (Volume II). Beekeeping cannot be practiced successfully without basic knowledge about the history of beekeeping, taxonomical information about honey bees and their distribution, the biology of the bee species involved, because hive management should be according the life cycle and needs of the bees during the different seasons. The reader will therefore find chapters on bee biology of different bee species, including stingless honeybees, beekeeping practices for Apis mellifera, Africanized bees and Asian bees, bee genetics and selection, bee pathology and parasitology, and prevention of bee diseases. Since beekeeping is done in different regions of the world with different bees and a variety of materials, a chapter is dedicated to beehives in different parts of the world. Several economical aspects of beekeeping are discussed in chapters about the role of pollinators in sustainable farming and livelihood security, bee products and their quality control, apitherapy and the use of bee products in local health care, innovative techniques in beekeeping and the impact of climate change on beekeeping. This book is in line with what decision makers and actors in beekeeping development should apply. Even more, the book is dealing with a theme often neglected, more precisely all subjects related to the quality and commercialization of hive products, including the broad and more than promising field of apitherapy. In view of increased problems of annual bee mortality in the USA and Europe, the view is turning towards a closer follow-up of the life of honey bees and not to the necessity of profitability out-and-out. Part of the beekeepers in developed countries, mainly in the west, who could be beginners, city-dwellers or professionals, are turning their way of beekeeping management towards a more extensive beekeeping, for example by adopting the Kenyan beehive, previously only reserved for the more helpless. With the publication of this book, we hope to hand out a practical guide that will assist all those who are involved in beekeeping for development. We hope it will stimulate beekeeping as an integrated activity with farming and nature conservation and will serve in many households for poverty alleviation and livelihood security. A book not to be missed in any self-respecting library

Metal-plate-connected wood joints : a literature review by Rakesh Gupta( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This publication has presented an overview of current research on MPC joints in wood trusses. The literature search was primarily of U.S. sources, with some effort to obtain literature from other parts of the world. An enormous amount of important information has been amassed by studies on testing procedures and theoretical models. Among the many attributes that must be considered in modeling and analysis of joints and trusses are the effect of load angle, wood-plate orientation, size, thickness, stiffness of steel plates, and specific gravity of wood on the strength of the joints, as well as the effect of the gap closure between members, tooth damage or length, and tooth layout on the overall joint performance. Extensive research has been done on tension joints in trusses; some has been done on heel connections, but very little has been done on web and other connections. Researchers have devoted considerable effort to understanding tensile joints under axial loading. However, experience suggests that even tensile joints are subjected to combined loadings because of eccentricities. The behavior of a simple MPC joint is very complex and influenced by many variables, including plate properties, joint geometry, and the natural variability of wood. An integrated approach, as used by Foschi (1977), that considers the material behavior and interactions of wood and plate and that is simple but sufficiently accurate for designing joints should be developed. A standard method for studying the long-term behavior of MPC joints should be developed and used in design. One possible option would be to use a time-temperature superposition principle for developing long-term data from relatively short-term tests. Failure modes of the truss joints should be characterized. Work on dynamic behavior and environmental effects on the joints is also needed."--Summary and conclusions
