Overview

Systems Analysis for Sustainable Engineering: Theory and Applications / Edition 1

IMPLEMENT SYSTEMS ANALYSIS TOOLS IN SUSTAINABLE ENGINEERING


Featuring a multidisciplinary approach, Systems Analysis for Sustainable Engineering: Theory and Applications provides a proven framework for applying systems analysis tools to account for environmental impacts, energy efficiency, cost-effectiveness, socioeconomic implications, and ecosystem health in engineering solutions.

This pioneering work addresses the increased levels of sophistication embedded in many complex large-scale infrastructure systems and their interactions with the natural environment. After a detailed overview of sustainable systems engineering, the book covers mathematical theories of systems analysis, environmental resources management, industrial ecology, and sustainable design. Real-world examples highlight the methodologies presented in this authoritative resource.

COVERAGE INCLUDES:

  • Structured systems analysis for sustainable design
  • Systems analysis and sustainable management strategies
  • Ecomomic valuation, instruments, and project selection
  • Statistical forecasting models
  • Linear, nonlinear, integer, and dynamic programming models
  • Multicriteria decision analyses
  • System dynamics models and simulation analyses
  • Water resources and quality management
  • Air quality management
  • Solid waste management
  • Soil and groundwater remediation planning
  • Industrial ecology and sustainability
  • Green building and green infrastructure systems
  • Energy resources management and energy systems engineering
  • Land resources management and agricultural sustainability
