Book Description :

This book demonstrates how the theoretical concepts of the capabilities approach can be applied in the context of engineering education, and how this could be used to add nuance to our understanding of the contribution higher education can make to human flourishing. In demonstrating the usefulness of the capability approach as a lens through which to evaluate the outputs of engineering education, the author also shows how the capability approach can be informed by, and informs, the concept of ‘sustainable development’ and discusses what pedagogical and curricula implications this may have for education for sustainable development (ESD), particularly in engineering. As such, the book builds on the work of scholars of engineering education, and scholars of university education at the nexus of development and sustainability. Engineering employers, educators and students from diverse contexts discuss both the capabilities and functions that are enlarged by engineering education and the impact these can have on pro-poor engineering or public-good professionalism. The book therefore makes an original conceptual and empirical contribution to our thinking about engineering education research. The book provides inspiration for both engineering educators and students to orient their technical knowledge and transferable skills towards the public good. It will also be of great interest to students and researchers interested in education for sustainable development more generally and to engineers who are interested in doing work that is aligned with the goals of social justice. The book will also appeal to scholars of the capability approach within higher education.

Book Description :

The profound transformations occurred in our modern age have been made possible by the unique combination of new technologies. Among them, me- cine has completely changed our perception of life. Longevity has been signi- cantly extended and linked to new lifestyles. The negative impact that pathologies and ageing have always had on the quality of our life is now mitigated by the availability of treatments daily applied to many individuals worldwide. For many years, pharmacological and surgical treatments have been supported by the introduction of biomedical devices. Biomedical implants have played a key role in the development of these treatments and achieved the objective of replacing tissue and organ structures and functionalities. Gra- ally, the scientific and clinical communities have understood that replacement could be improved by materials able to interact with the tissues and to parti- pate in their metabolism and functions. This approach soon led to biomedical implants with improved clinical performances, but also to a new aspiration; rather than replacing damaged tissues and organs scientists and clinicians nowadays aim at their partial or complete regeneration. As a consequence of this ambition, the disciplines of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine have recently emerged. It is the dawn of a fascinating era where scientists from various disciplines, clinicians, and industry will need to intensify their col- borative efforts to provide our society with new and affordable solutions.

Book Description :

From the Introduction: Nanotechnology and its underpinning sciences are progressing with unprecedented rapidity. With technical advances in a variety of nanoscale fabrication and manipulation technologies, the whole topical area is maturing into a vibrant field that is generating new scientific research and a burgeoning range of commercial applications, with an annual market already at the trillion dollar threshold. The means of fabricating and controlling matter on the nanoscale afford striking and unprecedented opportunities to exploit a variety of exotic phenomena such as quantum, nanophotonic and nanoelectromechanical effects. Moreover, researchers are elucidating new perspectives on the electronic and optical properties of matter because of the way that nanoscale materials bridge the disparate theories describing molecules and bulk matter. Surface phenomena also gain a greatly increased significance; even the well-known link between chemical reactivity and surface-to-volume ratio becomes a major determinant of physical properties, when it operates over nanoscale dimensions. Against this background, this comprehensive work is designed to address the need for a dynamic, authoritative and readily accessible source of information, capturing the full breadth of the subject. Its six volumes, covering a broad spectrum of disciplines including material sciences, chemistry, physics and life sciences, have been written and edited by an outstanding team of international experts. Addressing an extensive, cross-disciplinary audience, each chapter aims to cover key developments in a scholarly, readable and critical style, providing an indispensible first point of entry to the literature for scientists and technologists from interdisciplinary fields. The work focuses on the major classes of nanomaterials in terms of their synthesis, structure and applications, reviewing nanomaterials and their respective technologies in well-structured and comprehensive articles with extensive cross-references. It has been a constant surprise and delight to have found, amongst the rapidly escalating number who work in nanoscience and technology, so many highly esteemed authors willing to contribute. Sharing our anticipation of a major addition to the literature, they have also captured the excitement of the field itself in each carefully crafted chapter. Along with our painstaking and meticulous volume editors, full credit for the success of this enterprise must go to these individuals, together with our thanks for (largely) adhering to the given deadlines. Lastly, we record our sincere thanks and appreciation for the skills and professionalism of the numerous Elsevier staff who have been involved in this project, notably Fiona Geraghty, Megan Palmer and Greg Harris, and especially Donna De Weerd-Wilson who has steered it through from its inception. We have greatly enjoyed working with them all, as we have with each other.

Book Description :

Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is a surface imaging technique that can be applied at sub-nanometre resolution in liquids and gases. The same instrumentation can also be used to quantify directly the forces of interfacial interaction in such environments and is therefore a critical tool for process engineers and scientists, where AFM investigations are leading directly to improved processes and products. This is the first book to bring together both the basic theory and proven process engineering practice of AFM, and to present them in a way that is accessible and valuable to both practising engineers, those who are improving their AFM skills and knowledge, and to researchers who are developing new products and solutions using AFM. The book takes a rigorous but practical approach to ensure that it is also directly applicable to practical process engineering problems. Fundamentals of the techniques are concisely described and specific benefits for process engineering clearly defined and illustrated. Coverage of applications of AFM to important areas of process engineering is comprehensive. Each of the chapter authors are recognized authorities on their subject.

Book Description :

Functionalization of polymeric fibers can be used as a multipotent tool to facilitate their application in different research fields such as tissue engineering, drug delivery and ion-exchange. In tissue engineering and drug delivery, biodegradable polymer-based textile structures (woven, knitted, or non-woven) are becoming more popular as their specific chemical composition, mechanical properties and morphological features can be controlled and modified according to the required application. Most bio-inert polymers lack the functional motifs for specific bioactivity; however, functionalization of scaffolds can provide biological functions to actively induce tissue regeneration and promote cell adhesion by targeting specific cell-matrix interactions. Functionalization is also a powerful tool to incorporate specific drug molecules which can then be released in a sustained fabricated by electrospinning, and functionalized through wet chemical techniques that are preferable for complex 3D structure of these fibrous scaffolds. The functionalized electrospun PCL fibers were characterized through scanning electron microscopy, x-ray showed the favorable effect of functionalization on altering cellular behavior. Next, the functional groups introduced via hydrolysis (-COOH) were ionized to impart a negative charge to the fiber surface and doxorubicin hydrochloride (DOX), an FDA approved anticancer drug, was ionized to impart a positive charge at a certain pH. The pH-sensitivity of both the materials was utilized to bind DOX electrostatically to the functionalized PCL fibers, with an aim to create pH-responsive drug delivery vehicle for the site-specific delivery of DOX. Results indicate successful electrostatic binding of DOX to functionalized electrospu PLC fibers and a high drug payload was achieved. The drug delivery response can be modulated by introduction of suitable stimuli (pH in this case) by utilization of a composite scaffold system somprising of drug-loaded scaffolds and hydrogels that release acid in the vicinity of scaffolds. Finally, polymer functionalization was used to obtain fibers with ion-exchange properties that could be used in environmental engineering as well as drug delivery applications. This study again emphasized the role of fiber diameter and surface area in enhancing the surface functionality of polymers. In summary, this research enable us to gain a basic understanding of the functionalization process of electrospun fibers and how this functionalization process could be exploited to suit various end use applications. The current research established the fact that appropriately functionalized submicron to nanometer fibrous assemblies are promising candidates for next generation tissue-engineered 3D scaffolds/drug delivery vehicles.
