About this product
- DescriptionThis book deals with the design and construction of buildings for nascale science and engineering research. The information provided in this book is useful for designing and constructing buildings for such advanced techlogies as natechlogy, naelectronics and biotechlogy. The book outlines the techlogy challenges unique to each of the building environmental challenges outlined below and provides best practices and examples of engineering approaches to address them: * Establishing and maintaining critical environments: temperature, humidity, and pressure * Structural vibration isolation * Airborne vibration isolation (acoustic ise) * Isolation of mechanical equipment-generated vibration/acoustic ise * Cost-effective power conditioning * Grounding facilities for low electrical interference * Electromagnetic interference (EMI)/Radio frequency interference (RFI) isolation * Airborne particulate contamination * Airborne organic and chemical contamination * Environment, safety and health (ESH) considerations * Flexibility strategies for natechlogy facilities The authors are specialists and experts with kwledge and experience in the control of environmental disturbances to buildings and experimental apparatus.
- Author BiographyAhmad Soueid is Principal/Senior Vice President for HDR Architecture, Inc. and chair of the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST) Nanotechnology Working Group which developed an overview document IEST-RP-NANO200, Planning of Nanoscale Science and Technology Facilities: Guidelines for Design, Construction, and Start-up. He holds a BS and MS in Architecture from the University of Texas at Arlington. Clayton Teague, now Guest Researcher at the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), was Director of the U.S. National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) from 2003 to 2011. He also served as the Chair of the American National Standards Institute Technical Advisory Group to the ISO Technical Committee on Nanotechnologies (ISO TC 229) from 2005 - 2011. He participated in the design/construction of the NIST Advanced Measurement. He holds a BS and MS in physics from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a PhD in physics from the University of North Texas. James Murday, now Director of Physical Sciences for the University of Southern California's Office of Research Advancement, was a founding member of the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative, and executive secretary to the U.S. Nanoscale Science Engineering and Technology (NSET) Committee from 2001 to 2006. He participated in the design/construction of the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory's Nanoscience Building. He holds a BS in physics from the Case Institute of Technology and a PhD in physics from Cornell University.
