Sustainable Tourism VI contains the proceedings of the sixth International Conference in this successful series on Sustainable Tourism. Tourism has become a major international industry, with many countries all over the world relying on the income it produces. Its economic advantages as a major source of finance and employment frequently leads to its active promotion by governments and other institutions, independent of the consequences on the environment, ecology and social structure of affected regions. Issues concerned with achieving environmental social and economic sustainability of tourism alongside the governance mechanisms needed to support sustainable tourism are highlighted. Also discussed is how new resources ought to be employed to avoid the errors committed in the past and propose remedial actions when required. This book takes a broad view of this sophisticated and complex industry, and examines the practice of sustainable tourism from global travel trends through to destination and site management. Innovative solutions, including ecological tourism, as well as cultural initiatives that will lead to better approaches to tourism with the objective of preserving the diversity of our planet. The demands of tourism can contribute to the destruction of the natural and cultural environment upon which it depends. The natural and cultural landscape’s capacity to accommodate the local and worldwide effects of tourism and the implications for the human economy and society constitute very important study objectives. To protect the natural and cultural landscape new solutions need to be developed which minimise the adverse effects of tourism. This can be achieved through new strategies involving the active collaboration of society as a whole. Topics covered include: Tourism strategies; Environmental issues; Emergent strategies for tourism development; Community issues; Climate change; Safety and Security; Tourism as a tool of development; Art, architecture and culture; Heritage tourism; Special interest tourism; Marine and coastal areas tourism; Sport tourism; City tourism; Tourism impact; Tourism and protected area; Rural tourism; Transport and tourism; Education and training; Theme parks; Destination management; Planning and development; Simulation models; Social and physical infrastructure.

This reprint, originally published in 1983, draws attention to the important lines of thought that have emerged during the past several decades to offer a portrait of contemporary physical geography which have been drawn together in this text. It introduces conventional terms and topics of the subject and weaves them into a conceptual fabric that rests on three major themes, including the energy-balance concept; a model for understanding the forces and processes in the landscape; the stress-threshold concept; the relationship between the stress produced by forces such as wind and water and the resistance of the earth's materials; and the magnitude and frequency of change in the landscape. Chapter summaries are featured along with numerous illustrations.

An introduction to CFD fundamentals and using commercial CFD software to solve engineering problems, designed for the wide variety of engineering students new to CFD, and for practicing engineers learning CFD for the first time. Combining an appropriate level of mathematical background, worked examples, computer screen shots, and step by step processes, this book walks the reader through modeling and computing, as well as interpreting CFD results. The first book in the field aimed at CFD users rather than developers. New to this edition: A more comprehensive coverage of CFD techniques including discretisation via finite element and spectral element as well as finite difference and finite volume methods and multigrid method. Coverage of different approaches to CFD grid generation in order to closely match how CFD meshing is being used in industry. Additional coverage of high-pressure fluid dynamics and meshless approach to provide a broader overview of the application areas where CFD can be used. 20% new content
