Assessing Engineering Designs for Environmental, Economic, and Social Impact

Engineers will play a central role in addressing one of the twenty-first century’s key challenges: the development of new technologies that address societal needs and wants within the constraints imposed by limited natural resources and the need to protect environmental systems.

 

To create tomorrow’s sustainable products, engineers must carefully consider environmental, economic, and social factors in evaluating their designs. Fortunately, quantitative tools for incorporating sustainability concepts into engineering designs and performance metrics are now emerging. Sustainable Engineering introduces these tools and shows how to apply them.

 

Building on widely accepted principles they first introduced in Green Engineering, David T. Allen and David R. Shonnard discuss key aspects of designing sustainable systems in any engineering discipline. Their powerful, unified approach integrates essential engineering and quantitative design skills, industry perspectives, and case studies, enabling engineering professionals, educators, and students to incorporate sustainability throughout their work. Coverage includes

 

  • A concise review of the natural resource and environmental challenges engineers face when designing for sustainability
  • Analysis and legislative frameworks for addressing environmental issues and sustainability
  • Methods for identifying green and sustainable materials
  • Principles for improving the sustainability of engineering designs
  • Tools for evaluating sustainable designs and monetizing their benefits

Synopsis:

Sustainable Engineering: Design and Analysis is the first textbook to offer a unified approach and comprehensive tools for evaluating and reducing the environmental impacts of engineering designs. It builds on the authors' comprehensive benchmarking study of the incorporation of sustainability concepts in engineering curricula, and integrates well-accepted principles and methods from their highly successful textbook, Green Engineering. David Allen and David Shonnard cover everything students and professionals need to improve sustainability in any engineering discipline. They integrate coverage of sustainability concepts and lifecycle principles, quantitative engineering design principles and methods, evaluation tools, case studies, industry perspectives, and more. Readers will learn how to utilize green materials, design green processes and products, and assess the economic value of green designs. Using this book, engineering faculty can bring greater coherence to their instruction on sustainability issues, easily integrating sustainability topics into existing courses. Note: This text condenses the new Second Edition of Green Engineering: Environmentally Conscious Design of Chemical Processes, also scheduled for publication in 2011.

About the Author

David T. Allen holds the Melvin H. Gertz Regents Chair in Chemical Engineering at the Cockrell School of Engineering, University of Texas at Austin. His current research involves understanding how anthropogenic emissions perturb complex chemical reaction networks, worsening urban air quality. David R. Shonnard holds the Richard and Bonnie Robbins Chair in Sustainable Materials at Michigan Tech, and directs the Sustainable Futures Institute. His interests include environmentally-conscious chemical process design, life-cycle assessment, environmental transport, bioengineering, and sustainability. Allen and Shonnard co-authored Green Engineering.
