Proceedings of the 8th International Symposium on Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning is based on the 8th International Symposium of the same name (ISHVAC2013), which took place in Xi’an on October 19-21, 2013. The conference series was initiated at Tsinghua University in 1991 and has since become the premier international HVAC conference initiated in China, playing a significant part in the development of HVAC and indoor environmental research and industry around the world. This international conference provided an exclusive opportunity for policy-makers, designers, researchers, engineers and managers to share their experience. Considering the recent attention on building energy consumption and indoor environments, ISHVAC2013 provided a global platform for discussing recent research on and developments in different aspects of HVAC systems and components, with a focus on building energy consumption, energy efficiency and indoor environments. These categories span a broad range of topics, and the proceedings provide readers with a good general overview of recent advances in different aspects of HVAC systems and related research. As such, they offer a unique resource for further research and a valuable source of information for those interested in the subject. The proceedings are intended for researchers, engineers and graduate students in the fields of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC), indoor environments, energy systems, and building information and management. Angui Li works at Xi’an University of Architecture and Technology, Yingxin Zhu works at Tsinghua University and Yuguo Li works at The University of Hong Kong.
With distributed generation interconnection power flow becoming bidirectional, culminating in network problems, smart grids aid in electricity generation, transmission, substations, distribution and consumption to achieve a system that is clean, safe (protected), secure, reliable, efficient, and sustainable. This book illustrates fault analysis, fuses, circuit breakers, instrument transformers, relay technology, transmission lines protection setting using DIGsILENT Power Factory. Intended audience is senior undergraduate and graduate students, and researchers in power systems, transmission and distribution, protection system broadly under electrical engineering.
Yoga is the key to the union between the Jeevatma (the self) and the Parmatma (the supreme). The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word “Yuj”, which means to bind or bridge. Through Yoga we bind our body, mind and spirit, which ought to be united ultimately in our journey of life. These three correspond with the three aspects of yoga. The postures (Asanas) correspond to the body, the deep breathing (Pranayam) corresponds to the mind and the meditation (Dhyan) corresponds with the spirit. Breathing bridges the body, mind and spirit. With regular practice of yoga, the energy system gets balanced, and as renewed energy begins to flow freely and evenly throughout the body, one begins to feel supple, flexible and physically better. Yog-Ethos is a simple compilation of personal experiences and contemporary information for conducting a successful and meaningful yoga session detailing yoga choreography.
Engine Repair, published as part of the CDX Master Automotive Technician Series, provides students with the technical background, diagnostic strategies, and repair procedures they need to successfully repair engines in the shop. Focused on a “strategy-based diagnostics” approach, this book helps students master diagnosis in order to properly resolve the customer concern on the first attempt.
This book gives a brief history of the development of Alloy 625 and a detailed account of its physical, mechanical, and corrosion properties. It also addresses different types of microstructural changes the Alloy 625 undergoes at intermediate temperatures; provides details of properties deterioration due to such microstructural changes; assesses the alloy damage during the in-service inspection of plants; and provides criteria for the damage evaluation for various destructive and non-destructive testing. It combines the industrial data and literature together in one place for damage assessment of service exposed Alloy 625 components. This book serves as a guide to practicing engineers in the industry interested in the use of Alloy 625 and in academia for students pursuing advanced courses in materials science. Alloy 625 is a versatile nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy known for its unique combination of high strength, excellent fabricability and weldability, and outstanding corrosion resistance.

This 2014 Article IV Consultation highlights that the GDP growth in Bhutan has slowed from about 10 percent in FY2011 (July 1–June 30) to 5 percent in FY2013. Slower growth reflects policy efforts to contain overheating pressures in the form of restrictions on credit for construction and vehicle. Inflation has remained elevated, tracking closely that of India (Bhutan’s main trading partner). Social development indicators have improved steadily, and Bhutan is on track or has achieved most of its Millennium Development Goals. Growth is projected to recover to 61⁄2 percent in FY2014, driven mainly by a pick-up in hydropower-related construction activities and domestic services.
