This CRCnetBASE version of the best-selling Environmental Engineers’ Handbook contains all of the revised, expanded, and updated information of the second edition and more. The fully searchable CD-ROM offers virtually instant access to all of the interrelated factors and principles affecting our environment as well as how the government and the industry must deal with it. It addresses the ongoing global transition in cleaning up the remains of abandoned technology, the prevention of pollution created by existing technology.
The Environmental Engineers’ Handbook on CD-ROM provides daily problem solving tools and information on state-of-the-art technologies for the future. The technology and specific equipment used in environmental control and clean-up is included for those professionals in need of detailed technical information. Because analytical results are an essential part of any environmental study, analytical methods used in environmental analysis are presented as well. Data is clearly presented in tables and schematic diagrams that illustrate the technology and techniques used in different areas.
This book is for people involved in working with plastic material and plastic fabricating processes. The information and data in this book are provided as a comparative guide to help in understanding the performance of plastics and in making the decisions that must be made when developing a logical approach to fabricating plastic products to meet performance requirements at the lowest costs. It is formatted to allow for easy reader access and this care has been translated into the individual chapter constructions and index.
This book makes very clear the behaviour of the 35,000 different plastics with the different behaviours of the hundreds of processes. Products reviewed range from toys to medical devices, to cars, to boats, to underwater devices, containers, springs, pipes, aircraft and spacecraft. The reader’s product to be designed and/or fabricated can be directly or indirectly related to plastic materials, fabricating processes and/or product design reviews in this book.
*Essential for people involved in working with plastic material and plastic fabricating processes
*Will help readers understand the performance of plastics
*Helps readers to make decisions which meet performance requirements and to keep costs low

Cloudburst is a book born of people’s experiences; people who are finding ways of living harmoniously with nature rather than exploiting it. It is hoped that this book will provide the means for other people to live similarly. Cloudburst was compiled fitfully, with no deadlines, in no hurry. It grew slowly, in stages, in the hours not taken by the daily duties which a rural existence demands.
