3. “Supply Chain Transformation: Evolving with Emerging Business Paradigms (Springer Texts in Business and Economics)” by Amiya K Chakravarty

“Supply Chain Transformation: Evolving with Emerging Business Paradigms (Springer Texts in Business and Economics)” Book Review: Case studies from different industries along with special chapters on green supply chain and supply chain disruption and restructuring exercises real world examples useful for benchmarking are found in this book. This book establishes a framework for supply chain transformation, focuses on the transformation of current chains, and examines key issues in transforming supply chains for emerging economies, humanitarian relief, sustainability, and healthcare delivery. This book delves into the transformation issues in supply chains and extends the concepts to incorporate emerging issues. It does so through ten chapters, divided into three sections. The first section establishes the framework for transformation, while the second focuses on the transformation of current chains in terms of products, processes, supply base, procurement, logistics and fulfillment. Section three is devoted to capturing the key issues in transforming supply chains for emerging economies, humanitarian relief, sustainability and healthcare delivery. This work will be of interest to both academics and industrial practitioners and will be of great value to graduate students in business and engineering. It raises many questions, some provocative and provides many leads for in-depth research. Several approaches are suggested for new problems along with a discussion of case studies and examples from different industries.

4. “Fundamentals of Structural Analysis: With Computer Analysis and Applications” by Subrata Chakarabarty

“Fundamentals of Structural Analysis: With Computer Analysis and Applications” Book Review: Fundamentals of Structural Analysis offers a comprehensive and well-integrated presentation of the foundational principles of structural analysis. It presents a rigorous treatment of the underlying theory and a broad spectrum of example problems to illustrate practical applications. The book is richly illustrated with a balance between realistic representations of actual structures and the idealized sketches customarily used in engineering practice. There is a large selection of problems that can be assigned by the instructor that range in difficulty from simple to challenging. This book is extremely beneficial for B.E./B.Tech. in Civil Engineering and also useful for M.E./M.Tech. students. The book takes an integral look at structural engineering starting with fundamentals and ending with computer analysis.

5. “Mathematical Models of Sedimentary Processes: An International Symposium (Computer Applications in the Earth Sciences)” by D Merriam

“Mathematical Models of Sedimentary Processes: An International Symposium (Computer Applications in the Earth Sciences)” Book Review: This volume reports the results of a symposium held in Heidelberg during the International Sedimentological Congress in late August and early September, 1971. The symposium, co­ sponsored by the International Association for Mathematical Geology, entertained the subject, “Mathematical Models of Sedimentary Processes.” The subject is most appropriate because sedimentologists have long been concerned with processes and mechanisms of sediment dispersal. Much effort has gone into building physical models such as flumes, stream tables, wave tanks, wind tunnels, etc. , to help understand sedimentological processes. Quantitative methods (especially statistics) have been utilized in summarizing these data. It is timely then with the recent developments of simulation and application of computer techniques that a symposium be addressed to the use of “Mathematical Models of Sedimentary Processes” involving some of these new statistically oriented methods and available databases.

6. “Computerized Basin Analysis: The Prognosis of Energy and Mineral Resources (Computer Applications in the Earth Sciences)” by Jan Harff and Daniel F Merriam

“Computerized Basin Analysis: The Prognosis of Energy and Mineral Resources (Computer Applications in the Earth Sciences)” Book Review: Main topics of the symposium, held from 19-22 June 1990, were application of computer methods to the exploration and exploitation of oil and gas, coal, and other energy and mineral resources. There were computer demonstrations as well as a one-day field trip to the geothermal heating plant in Warren. The Regional Group for Eastern Europe of COG EO DATA also met during the conference. Fifty-one papers were presented including eight poster sessions by authors from 14 countries. A selection of 19 papers from an international conference in Instow, (then) East Germany, June 1990. They discuss the application of computer methods to the exploration and exploitation of oil and gas, coal, and other energy and mineral resources.
