Since it was established by Ove Arup in 1946, Arup has been the design, architectural and engineering genius behind many of the world's leading buildings and urban areas. The team has been pivotal in creating some of the world's best-known developments: from the groundbreaking Sydney Opera House to the unconventional Centre Pompidou in Paris and Crossrail, the largest construction project in Europe today. Beyond iconic buildings, Arup's influence is also in evidence behind the scenes. The hidden hand of the engineer has transformed many of our everyday experiences - often without us knowing. Arup has developed leading fire-safety systems in airports, cooling systems in museums to protect priceless artworks, and its experience with acoustics ensures every note is heard in the world’s leading opera houses. The book focuses on some of the biggest global issues to arise over the past 70 years. They include the population explosion and subsequent increase in city living, as well as changes in transport patterns that have fuelled the construction of airports, roads, rail and bridges, and even the democratisation of sporting events. Looking at Arup's work under the lens of these world-shaping events, we show how this is a firm that has not just responded to a changing world, but has anticipated and led many of those changes. Arup takes its place in society seriously. Collaborations such as the partnership with C40 to tackle climate change are impacting the way future generations will live. Looking to the future, this is a firm that will continue on its mission to shape a better world.

The design and functional complexity of medical devices and systems has increased during the past half century, evolving from the level of cardiac pacemakers to magnetic resonance imaging devices. Such life-saving advancements are monumentally advantageous, but with so much at stake, a step-by-step manual for biomedical engineers is essential. This edition of a bestselling textbook utilizes a strong design perspective to provide designers with a thorough overview of the field, including topics related to databases, process analysis, and device improvement. Covers All Necessary Design Aspects for Advanced Biomedical Projects Designed primarily for senior bioengineering students in the formative stages of planning their design project, Design of Biomedical Devices and Systems is also beneficial to graduate students in the field and practitioners working with medical devices. This standard-setting resource includes: A variety of open-ended design problems and examples An overview of device definitions and reliability A discussion of testing and hardware verification and validation principles Detailed photographs and illustrations within each chapter Systematic approaches to device development and maintenance are mandated to ensure safe and effective devices for the patient, an economical and competitive success for the manufacturer, and a reliable, cost-effective investment for the user. This authoritative textbook answers the call. A solutions manual is available for instructors wishing to convert this reference to classroom use.

"Axiomatic Quality brings together two well-established theories, axiomatic design and robust design, to eliminate or reduce both conceptual and operational weaknesses. Providing a complete framework for immediate implementation, this book guides design teams in producing systems that operate at high-quality levels for each of their design requirements. And it shows the way towards achieving the Six-Sigma target - six times the standard deviation contained between the target and each side of the specification limits - for each requirement." "Acclaro DFSS Light, a Java-based software package that implements axiomatic design processes, is available for download from a Wiley ftp site, Acclaro DFSS Light is a software product of Axiomatic Design Solutions, Inc."
