Streszczenie: This pioneering book addresses the entirety of river flooding issues in the Upper Vistula Basin, where considerable flood generation potential exists. It analyses the factors influencing flood risk, investigates variations in observation records and discusses projections for the future and adaptation to changing risk. It serves the general interest in understanding the floods that cause massive destruction in Europe, with dozens of fatalities and tremendous material damages. This interdisciplinary book, which covers aspects of climatology, geomorphology, hydrology, and water and flood risk management, unveils the complexity of the current situation. Access to reliable and accurate information can help solve important practical problems related to flood risk reduction strategies, and is at the core of the EU Floods Directive. As such, the book offers a valuable resource for scientists, educators and practitioners involved in water management, natural disaster reduction and adaptation to climate change.
Streszczenie: This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed conference proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Rough Sets and Knowledge Technology, RSKT 2013, held in Halifax, Canada in October 2013 as one of the co-located conferences of the 2013 Joint Rough Set Symposium, JRS 2013. The 69 papers (including 44 regular and 25 short papers) included in the JRS proceedings (LNCS 8170 and LNCS 8171) were carefully reviewed and selected from 106 submissions. The papers in this volume cover topics such as history and future of rough sets; foundations and probabilistic rough sets; rules, reducts, ensembles; new trends in computing; three-way decision rough sets; and learning, predicting, modeling.

Treść w języku angielskim.
Streszczenie: The Second Edition of this introduction to fire protection systems is completely revised and updated to offer the student, architect or engineer the basics of fire protection devices and equipment, and how they may be applied to any given project. Fire Protection: Detection, Notification, and Suppression reveals the “nuts and bolts” of fire protection system selection, design and equipment in an applied approach. Whether a mechanical engineer, safety engineer, architect, estimator, fire service personnel, or student studying in these areas, the authors show the pros and the cons of protection systems being proposed, and how they should be compared to one another. It also gives non-fire engineering practitioners a sense of proportion when they are put in a position to select a consultant, and to give a sense of what the consultant may be doing and how a system is being matched to the hazard. Beginning fire protection engineers could also use its language for writing a report about these systems for a client. [za Wydawcą]
Streszczenie: This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Rough Sets and Current Trends in Computing, RSCTC, held in Chengdu, China, in August 2012, as one of the co-located conferences of the 2012 Joint Rough Set Symposium, JRS 2012. The 55 revised full papers presented together with one keynote paper were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on rough sets and its applications; current trends in computing; decision-theoretic rough set model and applications; formal concept analysis and granular computing; mining complex data with granular computing; data mining competition.

Tekst w języku angielskim.
Streszczenie: This thesis investigates the early ignition behavior of polymer/clay nanocomposites, which are perceived as potential eco-friendly flame retardant systems. It examines the correlation between clay structural chemistry and high-temperature transformations with clay-assisted decomposition of organic macromolecules. In particular, it investigates the unique effects of metal ions like Mg2+, Al3+ and Fe3+ that are inherent in clays (smectite) on the combustion and thermo-oxidative decomposition of polyamide 6. The results indicate that metal ions present on/in montmorillonite platelets have preferential reactivity towards peroxy/alkoxy groups during polyamide 6 thermal decomposition. Lastly, a simple solution in the form of a physical coating on clay surface is proposed, based on the role of polymer-clay interfacial interaction. [za Wydawcą]
