With a wealth of illustrations, examples, discussion questions, and case studies, the Food Packaging Science and Technology covers basic principles and technologies as well as advanced topics such as active, intelligent, and sustainable packaging with unparalleled depth and breadth of scope. Emphasizing the application of relevant scientific principles to create effective designs and quality products, an international team of contributors draws on their collective experience to equip you with the necessary knowledge and tools to tackle modern food packaging problems.

Divided into four parts, this book begins with an extensive discussion of packaging materials science. Contributions review the basic concepts of chemical and physical properties as they relate to food packaging. They cover gas permeation and migration and give detailed information on the four basic types of packaging materials: plastics, glass, metal, and cellulosic. The second part applies the previous information to the field of packaging technologies. Traditional methods and concepts such as end-of-line operations, permeation and migration, canning and aseptic packaging, and vacuum/modified atmosphere packaging are juxtaposed with the more advanced technologies of microwaveable packaging, active packaging, and intelligent packaging.

Part 3 discusses shelf life determination and elements of storage stability and packaging requirements of various food categories. The final part presents issues related to packaging sociology, addressing sustainable packaging, as well as sociological and legislative considerations.Used Book in Good Condition

RF Design Software Learning Kit: Step-By-Step Examples on Using ADS Software for an Introductory RF/Microwave Course


(as of Oct 13,2018 19:53:22 UTC – Details)

Learning RF/microwave design fundamentals for the first time can be challenging. Keysight Technologies has created the RF Design Software Learning Kit to make it easier. Many texts used for introductory RF/microwave courses contain examples using CAD simulation software; however, they do not explain how to set up those simulations. This learning kit includes a 170-page downloadable book, along with links to the associated ADS projects and videos. This book provides step-by-step examples highlighting the theory and application of an RF/microwave curriculum within the Keysight ADS software environment. Keysight ADS is the world’s leading electronic design automation software for RF, microwave, signal and power integrity applications. ADS is used by RF engineers in a range of industries. This text aims to provide the reader with the basic tools necessary to succeed when entering the workforce. Therefore, the intended audience is a student enrolled in an introductory microwave course, and the material is presented in the familiar homework style format. The topics covered range from basic transmission line theory to passive filters, and include three design projects intended to be used in the laboratory setting. The structure of the homework questions is designed to teach the user to apply the theory, expect a solution, and validate the hypothesis. Often, the problem with using a CAD tool is that the user does not know how to set up a correct simulation, and the software will only simulate what it is instructed to do. These examples are designed to show the capabilities of the software while building an understanding of how it works and how to set up correct simulations. Although the material is presented in a classroom setting, the emphasis on fundamental theory opens the demographic to anyone interested in learning basic microwave theory and how to use ADS software.
