About the book

During the planning and design phase of any engineering system, structure, or component (SSC’s) there is a need to ensure that the designed SSC will perform as designed. A number of uncertain aspects can affect the performance of the designed SSC’s including spatial and temporal variability of the design parameters, physical model assumptions, numerical stability and convergence, and grid dependence of the design software. Some of these uncertain aspects either (reducible or non-reducible) need to be managed in a way the support the reliability and robustness of the designed SSC’s.

This book is planned to address topics related uncertainty management during the design of engineering SSC’s for use in pollution prevention and control. It aims at providing the reader with comprehensive overview on state of art of uncertainty management in during the design of engineered SSC’s. Contributions about uncertainty identification, categorization, quantification and propagation and analysis for SSC’s used in designing pollution prevention and control SSC’s are of special interest. Topics on predicting water and air quality, remediation of contaminated sites, hazardous waste disposal, pollutant transport and migration are of welcomed.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jasna Bozic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
