“CFD for Wind and Tidal Offshore Turbines (Springer Tracts in Mechanical Engineering)” Book Review : This book is designed for scientists, engineers and practitioners involved in the field of numerical modelling in the water sector,flood management, natural resources preservation, And also for hydraulic machineries, and innovation in numerical methods, 3D developments and applications. The book covers novel CFD techniques to compute offshore wind and tidal applications.It includes Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques, offshore wind and tidal turbines for energy generation.The difficulty and costs of undertaking experimental tests in offshore environments have increased the interest in the field of CFD which is used to design appropriate turbines and blades, understand fluid flow physical phenomena associated with offshore environments, predict power production or characterise offshore environments, amongst other topics.

3. “Behavior of Pipe Piles in Sand” by Magued Iskander

“Behavior of Pipe Piles in Sand” Book Review: This book is designed for the professional engineer involved in the design and manufacture of products. The book presents a detailed blueprint for developing experimental facilities necessary to identify these processes. It includes a unique instrumented double-walled pipe-pile that is used to delineate the frictional stresses acting against the external and internal surfaces of the pile. It covers the capacity of pipe piles in sand which has resulted from a lack of understanding of the physical processes that control the behavior of piles during installation and loading. Later focuses on a fast automatic laboratory pile hammer capable of representing the phenomena that occur during pile driving was also developed and used.
