In response to the increasing interest in developing photonic switching fabrics, this book gives an overview of the many technologies from a systems designer's perspective. Optically transparent devices, optical logic devices, and optical hardware are all discussed in detail and set into a systems context.
The book states that in the last quarter of the twentieth century, a new class of materials called Geo-synthetics emerged which led to significant revolution in the design of geotechnical and geo-environmental systems. Geotextiles extend the service life of roads, increase their load carrying capacity and reduce rutting and other distresses. The effectiveness of geotextiles in stabilization and separation roles with flexible pavements has been extensively researched.
Recognizing the vast potentiality of this developed Bituminized Jute Paving Fabric (BJPF) as overlay on existing pavements to reinforce and partially substitute the bitumen mastic, a strong desire of sharing the findings stimulated by the author to write this comprehensive technical handbook. The author firmly believes that this book will at least partially fulfill the requirements of the interested engineering students and practicing engineers and may prompt them to delve deeper into the subject to explore new avenues for its use and to refine the existing design methodologies.
