• 2009 International Energy Conservation Code and ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2007 Energy Standard for Building Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (International Code Council Series)

    Leading the way in the energy efficiency initiative, this publication combines two highly critical codes to create a resource that is both thorough and practical. It represents a joint effort by the International Code Council (ICC) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and it was developed as a direct result of the energy efficiency policy goals set forth in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), one of the first priorities of the new U.S. Presidential Administration and the U.S. Congress. This dual edition will make it easier to ensure that new and renovated buildings are built in compliance with the latest references available, in compliance with local requirements, and inline with the goals of ARRA. It brings together industry experts, government officials from all levels, and industry representatives who manufacture, service, and maintain the systems and products that go into energy-efficient buildings, for a well-rounded, comprehensive resource that can be easily applied to a wide variety of green building scenarios.

  • Design of Racing and High-Performance Engines 2004-2013 (Sae International Progress in Technology Series)

    This compendium is an update to two best-selling editions published by SAE International in 1995 and 2003. Editor Doug Fehan has assembled a collection of technical papers from the SAE archive that will inspire readers to use race engine development as an important tool in the future of transportation. He focuses on several topics that are important to future race engine design: electrification, materials and processes, and improved technology. Today s electric hybrid vehicles and kinetic energy recovery systems embody what inventors envisioned in the early 1900s. First employed in trams and trains of that era, the technology was almost forgotten until racers resurrected their version in 2009 F-1 racing. The automotive industry has long admired the aircraft industry s use of lightweight metals, advanced finishing processes, and composites. The use of these materials and processes has helped reduce overall mass and, in turn, improved speed, performance, and reliability of race engines. Their initial high cost was a limiting factor for integrating them into mass-produced vehicles. With racing leading the way, those limitations were overcome and vehicles today feature some amazing adaptations of those processes and materials. Engine power, efficiency, durability, reliability, and, m...

  • Top Ten Global Justice Law Review Articles 2007 (Terrorism: Documents of International and Local Control, Second Series)

    Top Ten Global Justice Law Review Articles 2007 is a thorough and accessible review of the most salient, the most controversial, and the most illuminating essays on security law in the previous calendar year. In this edition, Professor Amos Guiora presents the ten most vital and pertinent law review articles from 2007 written by both scholars who have already gained international prominence as experts in security law as well as emerging voices in the security-law debate. These articles deal with issues of terrorism, security law, and the preservation of civil liberties in the post-9/11 world. The chosen selections derive not just from the high quality and expertise of the articles' authors, but equally from the wide diversity of legal issues addressed by those authors. Guiora combines the expertise of scholars from such accredited institutions as Harvard, Stanford, the U.S Military Academy and the U.S. Department of Defense to provide a valuable resource for scholars and experts researching this important subject area.This annual review provides researchers with more than just an authoritative discussion on the most prominent security debates of the day; it also educates researchers on new issues that have received far too little attention in the press and in academia. These expe...
