  • 2016 4th International Conference on the Development in the in Renewable Energy Technology (ICDRET)

    The scale of the problem of Green House Gas (GHG) emission has been taken seriously by most of the developed nations specially after Kyoto Protocol and Cancun Conference. Promotion of Renewable Energy (RE) and adoption of enhanced efficiency at every stage has been envisaged. Both developed and developing world are taking equally optimistic approach towards popularizing RE technologies and working jointly to make this world livable for our next generation. With this backdrop, United International University is going to organize the 3rd International Conference on the Developments in Renewable Energy Technology, ICDRET 2016, on January 7-9, 2016 at Dhaka, Bangladesh.

    This book is concerned with the study of continuum mechanics applied to biological systems, i.e., continuum biomechanics. This vast and exciting subject allows description of when a bone may fracture due to excessive loading, how blood behaves as both a solid and fluid, down to how cells respond to mechanical forces that lead to changes in their behavior, a process known as mechanotransduction. We have written for senior undergraduate students and first year graduate students in mechanical or biomedical engineering, but individuals working at biotechnology companies that deal in biomaterials or biomechanics should also find the information presented relevant and easily accessible.

    Advances in physics, molecular biology, and computer science are converging on the capacity to control, with molecular precision, the structure and function of matter. These twenty original contributions provide the first broad-based multidisciplinary definition and examination of the revolutionary new discipline of molecular engineering, or nanotechnology. They address both the promise as well as the economic, environmental, and cultural challenges of this emerging atomic-scale technology.Leaders in their field describe current technologies that feed into nanotechnology - atomic imaging and positioning, protein engineering, and the de novo, design and synthesis of self-assembling molecular structures. They present development strategies for coordinating recent work in chemistry, biotechnology, and scanning-probe microscopy in order to successfully design and engineer molecular systems. They also explore advances in molecular and quantum electronics as well as reversible computational systems and the fundamental physical constraints on computation. Additional chapters discuss research efforts in Japan and present the prospects of nanotechnology as seen from the perspective of a microtechnologist.The final section looks at the implications of success, including the prospects of enormous computational power and the radical consequences of molecular mechanical systems in the fields of medicine and life extension.BC Crandall is Cofounder and Vice President of Prime Arithmetics, Inc.Contributors: Robert Birge.

  • From Maxwell to the Internet

    A number of important technologies developed rapidly in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including electricity, electronics, and computers, but also biotechnology, nanotechnologies, and technologies derived from them. In fact, it is the exponential rate of development of these technologies, more than anything else, that has resulted in the scientific and economic developments of recent decades. In those technologies and in others, that rate is likely to increase.
