Principles of Hydrology

This treatise on Hydrology is an attempt to bridge the gap that exists between principles and practice in the subject. It lays importance on principles and concepts and simultaneously furnishes guidelines on practical use of the subject, through a large number of worked problems. The problems worked out are based mostly on field data. The book covers courses on Hydrology at both the U.G. and P.G. levels. It also provides reliable reference material to students preparing for competitive examinations such as GATE and IES. It further forms a ready reference guide to the practising engineers. The highlight and most distinguishing feature of the book is the way practically important topics on Frequency analysis, Regression analysis and Watershed modelling are dealt with. The book is expected to be of great help to the students at the U.G. level and as well to provide impetus to teachers to take up B.E. projects in this subject of great importance.

Current Trends in Antibiotic Resistance in Infectious Diseases

This book contains ten chapters which cover current trends on antibiotic resistance in different parts of the world. Some of the chapters are dedicated to specific type of bacteria like marine and cholera associated microorganisms. Whereas rest of the chapters are mainly focused on the mechanism of drug resistance with special reference to beta lactamases. Since most of the antibiotics used to treat infections belong to -lactam group which is lactam ring (β-lactam) or penam is a lactam with a heteroatomic ring structure, consisting of three carbon atoms and one nitrogen atom. A lactam is a cyclic amide.The main focus of this book is to understand the different molecular markers responsible for developing resistance against this group of antibiotics. CTX-M family of enzyme which hydrolyzes third generation of cephalosporins preferably, cefotaxime, belongs to the category of Extended-spectrum -lactamases (ESBLs). These types of enzymes are emerging among Gram-negative bacteria; predominantly Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli and other species in different parts of the world. In the current scenario, the CTX-M family includes almost 40 variants. The blaTEM, and blaSHV are another important class of -lactamases, most prevalent among enterobacteriacae which are also discussed in this book.

Calculations in Chemistry

Calculations in Chemistry is intended to help students overcome the challenges associated with solving the numerical problems in chemistry. Chemistry is a numerical science which cannot be fully appreciated without adequate numerical skills. In fact, the lack of problem-solving skills has been recognised as one of the major reasons for the poor performance recorded in the subject over the years. Budgetary and size constraints often translate to lack of space for solving enough sample problems in core textbooks and most problems are presented in a difficult manner that douses enthusiasm for learning. Thus, a book of this nature, containing numerous solved problems drawn from all aspects of chemistry, is necessary to complement the core texts if students are to attain the required level of mastery in the subject. Meant specifically for students studying chemistry at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, this book presents the calculations in chemistry in a simple, logical and down-to-earth manner that will impart students with the required numerical skills for excelling in chemistry.Salient Features• wide topical coverage• clear, concise introductions that explain basic principles and theoretical basis for each type of calculation• numerous representative examples• practice problems and answers to test what has been explained• end-of-chapter summary that gives a checklist of key terms and concepts• numerous exercises, including objective questions, with answers• exhaustive coverage of the mole concept• use of SI units and IUPAC conventions• it assumes little or no prior knowledge of chemistry and mathematics• comprehensive treatment of quantitative analysis• appendices that supply useful information.

Basic Structural Analysis , 2/e

The aim of the book is to present the applications of principles to solve basic structural engineering problems in an easy-to-follow and simple manner, avoiding unnecessary mathematical gymnastics and, instead, emphasizing on the engineering applications. This book caters to the needs of the student who enters the portals of Civil Engineering Department in the second year of UG programme and will be useful to understand the basic principles of structural analysis, energy principles, concepts of loads, arches, bridges, beams, analysis of statically determinate structures, and importance of influence line diagrams in analyzing problems on indeterminate beams. The book takes an outcome-based learning approach, where the authors ensure that the students engage well with the contents of each chapter and the expected learning outcomes are achieved by them. Realizing the importance for a systematic approach to problem solving, Bloom's Taxonomy has been applied while designing the contents of the book, so that the students systematically learn to remember, understand, analyze, apply, evaluate and create learning. A large number of practical problems from various university and competitive examinations, presented in the book, will help students get a feel of the problems encountered in the real world. These will also help them during taking their own examinations.
