The Western Region of British Railways has always held a special appeal for railway modellers. Formed in 1948, the Western Region carried on the traditions of The Great Western Railway more or less unchallenged until the regions were abolished in the 1990s. Modelling the Western Region provides all the advice you need to model your own railway layout based on this fascinating region and era. This book considers the historical background of the Western Region; it reviews available ready-to-run and kit-built steam and diesel motive power; explains Western Region signalling practice; discusses rolling stock typically used on the Western Region and, finally, provides practical suggestions for branch and main line layouts. An essential reference book, fully illustrated with 203 colour, 46 black and white photographs and 19 illustrations, for all modellers of all abilities and in any scale, who wish to model the Western Region.

Hardbound. This monograph presents a unique combination of structural and tectonic modelling with applied petroleum geological problems. Focussing on the Norwegian Continental Shelf and neighbouring areas, it includes discussion covering all scales - from development of sedimentary basins, to formation of fractures and joints on a microscale - and from exploration, to the exploitation of hydrocarbons. The book's coverage of structural and tectonic modelling, petroleum geology applications, and the treatment of the Norwegian Continental Shelf should make this book an invaluable resource book for advanced students of structural and tectonic modelling, teachers, and researchers; as well as for geologists and geophysicists in the petroleum industry.
"The importance of accurately modelling seas and coastal regions is emphasized by the need for a better understanding of their normal behaviour and response to extreme conditions. Problems such as pollution of these areas have become a major international concern and the related environmental consequences need further study in order that proper remedial actions can be designed. Computer models are an efficient tool to determine the response of water systems, in combination with remote sensing and experimental sampling. Furthermore, once a disaster occurs, models can be used to determine its extent and impact, and aid the optimization of the use of available resources." "This book contains the papers presented at the Second International Conference on Computer Modelling of Seas and Coastal Regions, held in Cancun, Mexico, in September 1995. The conference attracted contributions from many different countries, covering a multitude of topics and techniques in the areas of shallow water models, pollutant transport and dispersion, wave propagation, coastal erosion, littoral drift, tidal simulation, storm surges, estuaries, and coastal lakes and lagoons."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Norwegian Petroleum Society's conference Basin Modelling: Advances and Applications attracted nearly 100 papers, 49 of which are published in this volume. Included are major overview papers, discussions of controls on basin thermal history, controls on hydrocarbon generation, and primary and secondary migration of hydrocarbons. Case histories from the Norwegian shelf and many other basins worldwide are presented, containing state-of-the-art basin modelling techniques. Petroleum geologists and exploration geochemists will be interested in this volume.
This work is the second of two volumes which present research findings and applications of computational and hydraulic modelling techniques to both quantity and quality aspects of hydraulic engineering. This volume covers estuarine and river waters in three parts - hydraulics, flow and measurement.
As Lloyd and Zhang (economics, U. of Melbourne, Australia) note, "[t]he opening of the Chinese economy since 1979 has changed its structure profoundly...." While China is playing an increasingly important role in the world economy, its growing links with the rest of the world have rendered its course more difficult to predict. In 13 papers, international analysts offer dynamic computable general equilibrium modeling for forecasting China's economic growth and structural change; simulations taking into account such factors as foreign direct investments and trade liberalizations; and other econometric models.
