This essential reference defines the principle and most commonly used terms found in engineering documents and drawings across multiple disciplines and explains them in plain, unambiguous English. Concise Dictionary of Engineering: A Guide to the Language of Engineering also distinguishes how some terms take on different meanings in different engineering contexts—critical knowledge when working on collaborative projects with diverse elements and colleagues. Based on an edition developed for researchers and technicians at Lockheed Martin, each entry in this volume is written in clear, everyday English without confusing jargon and “techno-speak.” The book is ideal for students, professional engineers, industrial personnel, managers and anyone else who requires a solid understanding of the language of engineers.

The Concise Dictionary of Environmental Terms has been written for academic use in grade schools, high schools, colleges, and universities. In addition, it has not only been written for technical individuals who work in environmental or in environmentally related fields, but also for non technical (in an environmental sense) individuals such as office workers, secretaries, doctors, lawyers, etc., and, last but not least, the consumer. In effect, it is a dictionary that may be used whenever and wherever information about environmental words and/or terms is likely to be sought. One-sentence definitions for approximately 6,000 words or terms are provided in non technical jargon. Every attempt has been made to present as much information as possible in this one sentence without complicating its meaning. The words and terms are drawn from the following environmental areas: air; water; solid waste; risk; meteorology; regulations; toxicology; engineering; inorganic chemicals; multimedia concerns; sustainable development; ISO 14000; ecology; and health, safety, and accident management. The appendix section, consisting of acronyms, units/conversion factors, and references, rounds out the scope of this work. In addition to the references provided, the reader will find a computer diskette attached to the back cover of the dictionary. The diskette contains two program files, a Word Perfect 5.1 file which can be run from the WINDOWS Program Manager, and an ASCII file. Both of these text files contain the entire dictionary of words and enable the reader to quickly find a definition using the search capability of the modern word processor.

Like most technical disciplines, environmental science and engineering is becoming increasingly specialized. As industry professionals focus on specific environmental subjects they become less familiar with environmental problems and solutions outside their area of expertise. This situation is compounded by the fact that many environmental science related terms are confusing. Prefixes such as bio-, enviro-, hydra-, and hydro- are used so frequently that it is often hard to tell the words apart. The Environmental Engineering Dictionary and Directory gives you a complete list of brand terms, brand names, and trademarks - right at your fingertips.

The purpose of this dictionary is to provide a convenient and affordable personal desk reference resource. The authors, who have many years experience in pharmacological research, teaching and editing, recognized a need for a single up-to-date volume encompassing material that hitherto could be gathered only from a well-stocked library. This book comprises two main sections: an A-Z listing of drugs and their properties; and a descriptive glossary of technical terms. The level and scope of this reference material will make it essential for pharmacologists and medicinal chemists, from the graduate student to established worker. It should also be valuable to workers in allied biomedical diSCiplines, such as biochemistry and physiology, medical students and science writers and editors. Scope The dictionary is centred on pharmacologically active agents. Workers in drug-related diSCiplines need to correctly identify individual agents from an arsenal of pharmacologically active compounds, each with a number of alternative drug names according to the country or naming convention.
