Description: Sustainable Engineering: Design and Analysisis the first textbook to offer a unified approach and comprehensive tools for evaluating and reducing the environmental impacts of engineering designs. It builds on the authors' comprehensive benchmarking study of the incorporation of sustainability concepts in engineering curricula, and integrates well-accepted principles and methods from their highly successful textbook,Green Engineering. David Allen and David Shonnard cover everything students and professionals need to improve sustainability in any engineering discipline. They integrate coverage of sustainability concepts and lifecycle principles, quantitative engineering design principles and methods, evaluation tools, case studies, industry perspectives, and more. Readers will learn how to utilize green materials, design green processes and products, and assess the economic value of green designs. Using this book, engineering faculty can bring greater coherence to their instruction on sustainability issues, easily integrating sustainability topics into existing courses. Note: This text condenses the new Second Edition ofGreen Engineering: Environmentally Conscious Design of Chemical Processes, also scheduled for publication in 2011.
