The initial edition of the book was based on informations avaiable and technologies and methodologies commonly used till 1995.Since then,quite a few improvements have taken place and new technologies and methodologies ect.have come up in related fields.As such,need was felt to upgrade and augment the book in the form of throughly revised edition and change the name to Maintenance Engineering & Management.The book has been designed to be used as a text book for many engineering disciplines as maintenance Engineering,Maintenance Technology or Maintenance Management at degree/diploma level and also useful for postgraduate study in most Indian universities,institutions and polytechnics.
The book, designed for the postgraduate students of Pure and Applied Geology (M.Sc.) and Hydrology and Groundwater (M.Tech) and undergraduate students of Civil Engineering/Irrigational Engineering/Water Resource Engineering, is highly useful to the students for their course study and is also likely to help those appearing in various competitive examinations such as GATE, NET, PSC and UPSC. This book comprises fifteen chapters, of which the first six chapters are devoted to Hydrology, whereas the last nine chapters impart the knowledge of Groundwater. The text explains topics in a simple manner using step-by-step approach throughout and supports learning with illustrations and diagrams. KEY FEATURES 1. Covers a wide range of topics on Hydrology and Groundwater. 2. Provides chapter-end Review Questions, Objective Type Questions and Numerical Problems for practice. 3. Includes Appendices on Unit Conversion Factors; Glossary; and Answers to Objective Type Questions and Numerical Problems, respectively, with a detailed bibliography.
Art in Biosynthesis: The Synthetic Chemists Challenge, Volume 1 presents representative examples whose biosynthetic pathways are known on the basis of experimentation. This book is divided into 44 chapters that demonstrate the creativity associated with the construction of molecular frameworks. It is a work of appreciation and criticism of the complexity of biosynthetic processes and of the interaction between man, the organic chemist, and Nature. This text describes an established biosynthetic sequence which is a challenge to the synthetic organic chemist to imitate and to equal Nature. The aim of each chapter is to enable a quick comparison of the specific synthetic strategies. This work covers the biosynthesis of natural antibiotics, amino acids, enzymes, fatty acids, and vitamins. This book will prove useful to organic chemists and researchers.
Specialist Periodical Reports provide systematic and detailed review coverage of progress in the major areas of chemical research. Written by experts in their specialist fields the series creates a unique service for the active research chemist, supplying regular critical in-depth accounts of progress in particular areas of chemistry. For over 80 years the Royal Society of Chemistry and its predecessor, the Chemical Society, have been publishing reports charting developments in chemistry, which originally took the form of Annual Reports. However, by 1967 the whole spectrum of chemistry could no longer be contained within one volume and the series Specialist Periodical Reports was born. The A...
