Scheduling Challenges with ARM's big.LITTLE Architecture
By David Chisnall
Oct 28, 2013
big.LITTLE is an ARM marketing term for a relatively simple concept. David Chisnall explains what big.LITTLE and similar strategies will mean for operating systems designers over the coming years.
The Dark Silicon Problem and What it Means for CPU Designers
By David Chisnall
Oct 22, 2013
The so-called "dark silicon problem" is the subject of a lot of marketing and misinformation. David Chisnall looks at what it really means for CPU designers and how it's likely to affect future processors.

What Are Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering?
By David Himmelblau, James Riggs
Aug 7, 2012
Learn about features of the professions of chemical and bioengineering, including an overview of the history of these fields, where graduates of these programs go to work, and types of projects in which chemical and bioengineers might participate now and in the future.
Diagrams for Understanding Chemical Processes
By Debangsu Bhattacharyya, Joseph A. Shaeiwitz, Richard Turton, Wallace B. Whiting
Jul 3, 2012
This chapter covers different types of chemical process diagrams, how these diagrams represent different scales of process views, one consistent method for drawing process flow diagrams, the information to be included in a process flow diagram, and the purpose of operator training simulators and recent advances in 3-D representation of different chemical processes.
Introductory Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics: Basic Concepts
By J. Richard Elliott, Carl T. Lira
Mar 8, 2012
The authors introduce the two basic premises of the first and second "laws" of thermodynamics: overall energy is conserved (you can't get something for nothing) and overall entropy changes are greater than or equal to zero (generation of disorder results in lost work).
Sustainable Engineering: An Introduction to Sustainability
By David T. Allen, David R. Shonnard
Jan 26, 2012
Engineers in the 21st century will need to design for energy efficiency, mass efficiency, and low environmental emissions. Both near and long-term steps are needed reduce fossil resource consumption and approach zero waste generation from engineered processes and products.

Introduction to Separation Process Engineering
By Phillip C. Wankat
Aug 29, 2011
Since separations are ubiquitous in chemical plants and petroleum refineries, chemical engineers must be familiar with a variety of separation methods. This chapter introduces the importance of separations, the concept of equilibrium, mass transfer, and problem-solving methods.
Advanced Mechanics of Materials and Applied Elasticity: Analysis of Stress
By Ansel C. Ugural, Saul K. Fenster
Jul 20, 2011
This chapter reviews of some important fundamentals of statics and mechanics of solids, the concept of stress, modes of load transmission, general sign convention for stress and force resultants, and analysis and design principles; as well as a discussion of treatment for changing the components of the state of stress given in one set of coordinate axes to any other set of rotated axes, as well as variation of stress within and on the boundaries of a load-carrying member.
Introduction to Chemical Process Safety
By Daniel A. Crowl, Joseph F. Louvar
Jul 6, 2011
As chemical process technology becomes more complex, chemical engineers will need a more detailed and fundamental understanding of safety. The authors of this book set out the fundamentals of chemical process safety in this introduction.
Notes on Digital Signal Processing: Overview of Sampling Techniques
By C. Britton Rorabaugh
Jan 26, 2011
This note discusses the difference between implicit and explicit sampling. It introduces three different mathematical models of explicit sampling techniques—ideal sampling, natural sampling, and instantaneous sampling.
