The Amber Room: A Novel
The Amber Room: A Novel
The Amber Room is one of the greatest treasures ever made by man: an entire room forged of exquisite amber, from its four massive walls to its finely crafted furniture. But it is also the subject of one of history’s most intriguing mysteries. Originally commissioned in 1701 by Frederick I of Prussia, the Room was later perfected Tsarskoe...
Environmental Engineering: Designing a Sustainable Future (Green Technology)
Environmental Engineering: Designing a Sustainable Future (Green Technology)

Environmental engineering's future seems boundless because it is based in the myriad ways in which nature solves its own engineering challenges. People have yet to design a system that pumps water 200 feet straight up toward the sky in a system that is silent, requires no mechanical pumps, and never malfunctions, yet giant sequoia trees do this...

Cost Optimization of Structures: Fuzzy Logic, Genetic Algorithms, and Parallel Computing
Cost Optimization of Structures: Fuzzy Logic, Genetic Algorithms, and Parallel Computing
While the weight of a structure constitutes a significant part of the cost, a minimum weight design is not necessarily the minimum cost design. Little attention in structural optimization has been paid to the cost optimization problem, particularly of realistic three-dimensional structures. Cost optimization is becoming a priority in all civil...
