Presents a diverse perspective of successful, inspirational and progressive women in science and engineering Women of today from 29 countries provide overviews of their successful careers, the challenges they faced, and offer advice. They have lived in the same era, and perhaps also the same environment as you. Successful Women Ceramic and Glass Scientists and Engineers: 100 Inspirational Profiles features women born in the 1920’s to 1970’s. Reflecting a diversity of backgrounds and different sectors of the workforce, their profiles include: ̶- Affiliation, points of contact, accomplishments (most-cited publication, most prestigious recognitions/awards, etc.), personal insight on her best career moment ̶ Brief biography, highlights of her successes, images from her career ̶ Personal commentary on her own career and pointers for younger scientists building careers This book provides novelty, inspiration, motivation and a bright perspective for the next generation of scientists and engineers seeking exciting and fulfilling careers. This book will be invaluable to mentors/professors, students and prospective students in science and engineering, scholars of gender studies, and scientific and engineering societies and organizations. “Lynnette Madsen has done a great service in writing this book, not just for women, but for society at large, because in the twenty-first century, we can no longer underutilize or ignore that half of the best." ̶ Rita Colwell, Director, United States National Science Foundation 1998-2004, Distinguished University Professor, University of Maryland, College Park, and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health "The book shows that opportunities in science exist in many countries around the world. Reading about the ways that took those women to their current positions is an exciting adventure." ̶ Yury Gogotsi, Professor, Drexel University "In addition to chronicling careers of great scientists, this book presents an array of career paths to young women and men -- a must read." ̶ Dr. Rainer Waser, Professor, Aachen University, Germany “It is inspiring to see that the successful women highlighted in this work are approaching life with courage and joy; they are changing paradigms and serving as voices for young girls. They are passionate about making a difference and breaking barriers; they are classy and fabulous." ̶ Dr. Olivia Graeve, Professor, University of California, San Diego

Membrane reactors combine membrane functions such as separation, reactant distribution, and catalyst support with chemical reactions in a single unit. The benefits of this approach include enhanced conversion, increased yield, and selectivity, as well as a more compact and cost-effect design of reactor system. Hence, membrane reactors are an effective route toward chemical process intensification. This book covers all types of porous membrane reactors, including ceramic, silica, carbon, zeolite, and dense metallic reactors such as Pd or Pd-alloy, oxygen ion-conducting, and proton-conducting ceramics. For each type of membrane reactor, the membrane transport principles, membrane fabrication, configuration and operation of membrane reactors, and their current and potential applications are described comprehensively. A summary of the critical issues and hurdles for each membrane reaction process is also provided, with the aim of encouraging successful commercial applications. The audience for Inorganic Membrane Reactors includes advanced students, industrial and academic researchers, and engineers with an interest in membrane reactors.

Highly effective thinking is an art that engineers and scientists can be taught to develop. By presenting actual experiences and analyzing them as they are described, the author conveys the developmental thought processes employed and shows a style of thinking that leads to successful results is something that can be learned. Along with spectacular successes, the author also conveys how failures contributed to shaping the thought processes. Provides the reader with a style of thinking that will enhance a person's ability to function as a problem-solver of complex technical issues. Consists of a collection of stories about the author's participation in significant discoveries, relating how those discoveries came about and, most importantly, provides analysis about the thought processes and reasoning that took place as the author and his associates progressed through engineering problems.
