Technology

The range of technology topics covered in our collection reflects the broad nature of the discipline itself, and we are proud to present some of the most state of the art research in this important, cross-disciplinary field. Our books about technology have a particular strength in engineering and software development, but the list also encompasses titles with a broad social science focus, including the history of technology. Cambridge Scholars' technology books will be of interest to researchers in many disciplines alongside specialist engineers, programmers and computer scientists.

Technolife 2035

Technology constantly evolves, usually slowly and insidiously – but always just as surely. Things that are currently being developed in laboratories will be in the public domain as different products and applications perhaps as soon as in a few years’ time, and as more refined versions in around ten years’ time. This book deals wit...

The Fabrication, Testing a...

This book considers the composition, production, testing methods and application of modern cellulose fibre cement boards (FCB). FCB replaced widespread but now illegal and harmful asbestos building products. Despite the complexity of the FCB fabrication process, the material is currently widely implemented. In the first chapter, the basic idea and microstructure of cellulose FCB is described, with the next chapter concerned with the process of the industrial fabrication of the composite material. The third chapter explores both the basic testing procedures described in international standards and more novel methods. The last section of the book deals with the practical applications of the product, which are illustrated by many existing examples. The pictures of the aesthetical façades of building as well as the remarks on FCB exploitation and economics of implementation of the product are included here. The book will be valuable for researchers, architects, and both graduate and post-graduate students, as well as practicing engineers concerned with building technology.

The Future of Post-Human E...

Why should mass media be informational and accurate as much as its proponents would claim—and, conversely, disinformational and propagandistic as much as its critics would argue? Contrary to the conventional wisdom held by many since the modern era of mass media, neither of the two opposing views is correct, to the extent that a t...
