SIAM Journals - The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) fosters the development of applied mathematical and computational methodologies needed in these various application areas. Applied mathematics in partnership with computational science is essential in solving many real-world problems. Through publications, research, and community, the mission of SIAM is to build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of science and technology.

American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) - The most extensive online resource on mechanical engineering which includes technical papers from journals and conference proceedings published by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

Pathfinders

Algorithm - In mathematics, computing, linguistics and related subjects, an algorithm is a finite sequence of instructions, an explicit, step-by-step procedure for solving a problem, often used for calculation and data processing. It is formally a type of effective method in which a list of well-defined instructions for completing a task, will when given an initial state, proceed through a well-defined series of successive states, eventually terminating in an end-state.

Cloud Computing - Cloud computing is a jargon term without a commonly accepted non-ambiguous scientific or technical definition. Some analysts and vendors define cloud computing narrowly as an updated version of utility computing: basically virtual servers available over the Internet. Others go very broad, arguing anything you consume outside the firewall is “in the cloud,” including conventional outsourcing.

Title: Journal of Environmental Engineering

Aims and Scope:

The Journal of Environmental Engineering presents broad interdisciplinary information on the practice and status of research in environmental engineering science, systems engineering, and sanitation. Papers focus on design, development of engineering methods, management, governmental policies, and societal impacts of waste water collection and treatment; the fate and transport of contaminants on watersheds, in surface waters, in groundwater, in soil, and in the atmosphere; environmental biology, microbiology, chemistry, fluid mechanics, and physical processes that control natural concentrations and dispersion of wastes in air, water, and soil; non point-source pollution on watersheds, in streams, in groundwater, in lakes, and in estuaries and coastal areas; treatment, management, and control of hazardous wastes; control and monitoring of air pollution and acid deposition; air shed management; and design and management of solid waste facilities. A balanced contribution from consultants, practicing engineers, and researchers is sought on engineering solutions, and professional obligations and responsibilities.

Available full-text articles are from 2010 to present.

Abstract:

This paper describes the 50-year view by the UK Government’s Foresight programme of the future of intelligent transport infrastructure, its implications and its social context. By 2055, it is envisaged that intelligence and pervasive information will be built in to everyday life, encompassing needs to communicate and travel. People will better understand the resource implications as well as the direct costs of their lifestyles—and perhaps they will actually travel less. However, given the slow speed at which infrastructure systems adapt, the research concluded that civil engineers need to start planning now for the inevitable travel revolution. The paper is based on the author’s 2006 Unwin lecture, delivered to the Institution of Civil Engineers and Institution of Mechanical Engineers on 6 April 2006, prepared with Phil Blythe of Newcastle University.

Abstract: The aim of ergonomics in design is to maximise the human contribution to system performance, and to ensure that users are not overloaded in their activities. The optimum ‘allocation of functions’ between the users and the rest of the system must be achieved, and the user-system interface must be compatible with human capabilities and limitations. Task descriptions, and approaches to modelling user behaviour, help in this. Both the hardware interface and the software interface are important in computer-based systems. Other aspects of system design with substantial ergonomics content are procedural aids, the workspace and environmental aspects. Good ergonomics practice demands comprehensive consideration of all the facets of human interaction with the system.
