This book presents the theory behind extrusion technology, as used for food and feed products, in a way which can be readily applied in practice. This book is relevant to all types of extruded human foods and animal feeds, and all types of equipment used to produce them: single- and twin-screw extruders, and specialised snack food machines.
Advances in Heat Transfer fills the information gap between regularly scheduled journals and university-level textbooks by providing in-depth review articles that are from a broader scope than in traditional journals or texts. The articles, which serve as a broad review for experts in the field, are also of great interest to non-specialists who need to keep up-to-date on the results of the latest research. This serial is essential reading for all mechanical, chemical, and industrial engineers working in the field of heat transfer, or in graduate schools or industry. Compiles the expert opinions of leaders in the industry Fills the information gap between regularly scheduled journals and university-level textbooks by providing in-depth review articles over a broader scope than in traditional journals or texts Essential reading for all mechanical, chemical, and industrial engineers working in the field of heat transfer, or in graduate schools or industry
This book focuses on advanced processing of new and emerging materials, and advanced manufacturing systems based on thermal transport and fluid flow. It examines recent areas of considerable growth in new and emerging manufacturing techniques and materials, such as fiber optics, manufacture of electronic components, polymeric and composite materials, alloys, microscale components, and new devices and applications. The book includes analysis, mathematical modeling, numerical simulation and experimental study of processes for prediction, design and optimization. It discusses the link between the characteristics of the final product and the basic transport mechanisms and provides a foundation for the study of a wide range of manufacturing processes. Focuses on new and advanced methods of manufacturing and materials processing with traditional methods described in light of the new approaches; Maximizes reader understanding of the fundamentals of how materials change, what transport processes are involved, and how these can be simulated and optimized - concepts not covered elsewhere; Introduces new materials and applications in manufacturing and summarizes traditional processing methods, such as heat treatment, extrusion, casting, injection molding, and bonding, to show how they have evolved and how they could be used for meeting the challenges that we face today.
Each industry, from robotics to health care, power generation to software, has its own tailored reliability and quality principles, methods, and procedures. This book brings these together so that reliability and quality professionals can more easily learn about each other's work, which may help them, directly or indirectly, to perform their tasks more effectively.
Offering an engineering perspective and the latest information on the application of this rapidly expanding technique, this practical book covers the technology, engineering, materials and products, as well as economic and ecological aspects. In addition to the theory, it also utilizes case studies that can easily be put into industrial practice. Each step of the process is discussed in terms of sustainability, and all data complies with the EU and FTA environmental regulations. Invaluable reading for food chemists and technologists, process engineers, chemists in industry, agricultural scientists, and chemical engineers.

Big Data Analytics is on the rise in the last years of the current decade. Data are overwhelming the computation capacity of high performance servers. Cloud, grid, edge and fog computing are a few examples of the current hype. Computational Intelligence offers two faces to deal with the development of models: on the one hand, the crisp approach, which considers for every variable an exact value and, on the other hand, the fuzzy focus, which copes with values between two boundaries. This book presents 114 papers from the 4th International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Data Mining (FSDM 2018), held in Bangkok, Thailand, from 16 to 19 November 2018. All papers were carefully reviewed by program committee members, who took into consideration the breadth and depth of the research topics that fall within the scope of FSDM. The acceptance rate was 32.85% . Offering a state-of-the-art overview of fuzzy systems and data mining, the publication will be of interest to all those whose work involves data science.
