Overview


This volume will prove of vital interest to those studying the use of renewable resources. Scientists, engineers, and inventors will find it a valuable review of ocean wave mechanics as well as an introduction to wave energy conversion. It presents physical and mathematical descriptions of the nine generic wave energy conversion techniques, along with their uses and performance characteristics.
Author Michael E. McCormick is the Corbin A. McNeill Professor of Naval Engineering at the U.S. Naval Academy. In addition to his timely and significant coverage of possible environmental effects associated with wave energy conversion, he provides a separate treatment of several electro-mechanical energy conversion techniques. Many worked examples throughout the book will be particularly useful to readers with a limited mathematical background. Those interested in research and development will benefit from the extensive bibliography.

&nbsp Jackson is right on about the lag. It's effects means anything you try to post may take a bit of time to actually post, or just not post at all. The last one happened late January and persisted for a little over a week. It was only a step away from the worst one I had to endure. That one you couldn't see new posrs for an entire week. There are several hundred symbols you can make, most created by putting one to six numbers together and placing &# just before the string of numbers. Some are a bit simpler and you can put a word before the amp symbol (&) to create a symbol. Many Greek letters can be created this way, such as &mu &<_>mu and &epsilon &<_>epsilon. I suggest checking out "light symbol" all results for some other basic symbols. Otherwise, just ask around! Someone will surely know the code if you want to have it. :) I have a nook simpletouch too, btw. The codes work on them.
