This textbook provides an introduction to design for function, using many examples of manufactured artifacts and living organisms to demonstrate common themes and fundamental principles. Examples forcefully illustrate the importance of the basic design principles related to material properties, physical principles, and energy expenditure. The author also discusses the relation of aesthetic and functional design, the crucial connection of design to production in artifacts, and reproduction in organisms. The author has thoroughly updated this second edition with more examples and a new chapter with actual design case studies to illustrate key ideas. In addition, the text contains many new exercises that reinforce important points in the text.

Less expensive and more environmentally appropriate than conventional engineering approaches, constructed ecosystems are a promising technology for environmental problem solving. Undergraduates, graduate students, and working professionals need an introductory text that details the biology and ecology of this rapidly developing discipline, known as ecological engineering. Ecological Engineering: Principles and Practice fills this need by describing ecological concepts and theory and demonstrating their application to constructed ecosystems. It presents highly visible and widespread applications of ecological engineering, including treatment wetlands, microcosms, composting systems, restoration ecology, soil bioengineering, and invasive species control.

Biological organisms are exceptionally efficient structures, having evolved over millions of years to achieve high load carrying capacity per unit weight. Compliance (flexibility) plays a significant role in the efficacy of natural structures. Examples range from cell walls and microorganisms, to bat wings, to human muscles. Long ago, engineers adopted compliant structures for solutions where structural efficiency was critical while in modern times, compliance has seen increasing use in civil structures such as temporary storage facilities and large-span roofs. Recently, there has been considerable interest in large membrane/inflatable structures for aerospace applications.This unique volume provides a concise summary of the important features of these interesting structures. Written by experts in the field, it covers topics on compliant structures in nature, compliant materials, mechanics of compliant structures, applications in engineering, and design for compliance. The text will contribute greatly to our continued learning from nature in order to design highly efficient engineering structures.
