About this book

This book gathers the proceedings of the Energy and Sustainability 2018 Symposium (EAS 2018) held in Windsor, Canada in June 2018. It brings together the state-of-the-art on specific aspects of the current energy status, and covers a wide range of energy and engineering systems, from internal combustion engines to electric vehicles, from the atmosphere, solar and wind, to underground geothermal and underwater turbines and energy storage. The book demonstrates how conventional internal combustion engines have advanced dramatically in terms of both performance and emissions over the past century. It also studies how life-supporting elements, such as water and greenhouses, must be prioritized and protected to ensure a sustainable future. The book offers a valuable source of information for future leaders, engineers, environmentalists, social forerunners, and decision-makers alike. It also provides a reference guide for both undergraduate and graduate students in engineering, the natural and social sciences, business and economics.

About the editors

Dr. Ahmad Vasel is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Tennessee Technological University. His research interests are wind and solar energy conversion and storage as well as experimental, theoretical, and computational fluid mechanics. Prior to joining Tennessee Tech, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Delaware, where he conducted research on optimization of commercial-sized wind farms and potential impacts of the wake of wind turbines on the surface fluxes. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Windsor, Canada, while receiving the prestigious Ontario Trillium Scholarship from the government of Ontario for four consecutive years. His Ph.D. research was focused on studying the hydrodynamics of underwater compressed air energy storage plants. He earned his M.Sc. and B.Sc. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Ferdowsi University, Iran, where he developed a lattice Boltzmann model for solving fluid mechanics and heat transfer problems. He has published his research in several conference proceedings, book chapters, and scientific journals including Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Physical Review E, Computers & Fluids, Energy Conversion and Management, and Applied Energy. He has served as guest editor for Sustainable Energy Technologies and Assessments (Elsevier) and International Journal of Sustainable Energy (Taylor and Francis).
Professor David S. K. Ting is the founder of the Turbulence & Energy Laboratory. Dr. Ting supervises students on a wide range of research projects primarily in the Energy Conservation and Renewable Energy areas. To date, he has co/supervised over sixty graduate students and co-authored more than one hundred and ten journal papers. His editorial involvment includes over ten special issues in high-impact journals, two monographs with IET, in addition to his single-authored book on Basics of Engineering Turbulence with Academic Press.
