Springer Engineering books accompany technological progress since the first and through the consecutive three industrial revolutions. The current fourth industrial revolution sees a fusion of conventional engineering items, such as machines and vehicles, with computer networks and intelligent technologies, creating cyber-physical systems and the Internet of Things. This will very soon deeply influence how we will work and live.
Nanotechnology and Bioengineering have greatly expanded the scope of the application of engineering methods in recent years. Not to forget the steady development in all engineering disciplines, from sustainable methods and materials in building construction, over more efficient aircraft propulsion and electric mobility, to 5G mobile networks. This immense scope is the reason for the large volume of the Engineering eBook collection as it covers all of these different fields and their connections to one another. Its content is targeted at researchers, engineers, and students, and thus helps to build a better and more sustainable future.
