Intended as a valuable biographical reference work on the lives, works and careers of individuals engaged in the practice of civil engineering, this volume looks specifically at those whose careers began before 1830. Beginning with what little is known of the lives of engineers such as John Trew who practised in the Tudor period, the background, training and achievements of engineers over the following 250 years are described by specialist authors, many of whom have spent a lifetime researching the history of civil engineering. This book will be of particular interest to historians of all disciplines and of great value to engineers involved in restoration work for whom an authoritative source of information on the engineers who designed public works over 300 years will be available for the first time.

Mathcad for Chemical Engineers demonstrates the use of Mathcad 13, which is the latest version of one of the most powerful and popular computational software packages in the world, for solving various chemical engineering problems. The book serves as a must-to-have guide and quick reference for chemical engineers and those who would like to learn and use Mathcad as their computational tool. This book can also be used as a textbook for chemical engineering education on computing using Mathcad. The book contains many real-life chemical engineering examples from various areas: material and energy balance, thermodynamics, transport phenomena, kinetics and reactor design, unit operations, engineering economics, and operations management. Unlike other books of similar theme, concise, but comprehensive, explanations are given in each chapter and step-by-step procedures of solving mathematical problems are also given for quick reference. Many examples allow readers to experience the power of Mathcad in solving chemical engineering problems. The book has chapters on Mathcad fundamentals, solving a single algebraic equation and a system of algebraic equations, curve fitting, integration and differentiation, solving a single ordinary differential equation (ODE) and a system of ODEs, solving a single partial differential equation (PDE) and a system of PDEs, and programming in Mathcad. There are a number of exercise problems at the end of each chapter that allow readers to further expose themselves to various chemical engineering problems. Although Mathcad 13 is the software package chosen by the authors and used throughout the book, most of the features discussed can also be applied using earlier versions of Mathcad. Furthermore, although Mathcad will always evolve into a newer version, most of the contents in this book will be applicable for any subsequent version of Mathcad.
