Professor Ye graduated from the Department of Geology, Nanjing University in 1966. He works as the General Engineer of Second Institute of Oceanography, State Oceanic Administration, China, with more than 40-years’ experience on marine engineering geology, engineering geophysics, oceanography, and application research in key technology of ocean engineering construction. He led many researches on marine geo-hazards, marine environment and safety engineering, seafloor detection, and in-situ test techniques. Until now, Prof. Ye published more than 90 papers and 3 books, edited 2 national technical standards.
Mr. Jiang has been deputy general manager of China Submarine Cable Construction Co., LTD., deputy general manager of S.B. Submarine Systems Co., LTD., vice president of Shanghai Long Distance & Wireless Communication Department of China Telecom, and China Telecom's chief representative of ICPC. He has engaged in underwater communication engineering for more than 40 years, and participated in and presided over the construction, maintenance and repair of many domestic and international submarine cable systems, including China's first international undersea coaxial communication cable in 1976, China's first international submarine optical cable system in 1993, and maintenance and repair of optical cables in the Asia-Pacific region.
Professor Pan is a PhD in marine geology and geophysics. After graduating from Tongji University in 1986, he joined Second Institute of Oceanography, State Oceanic Administration of China to work on marine geological and geophysical survey for deep sea resources exploration, environmental research and engineering site investigations. Since 1993, he participated in the formulation of related national technical standards and monographs, and presided over the desktop study and route survey of many domestic and international submarine optical cable systems in China seas.
Mr. Jiang graduated from the Department of radio electronics of Shanghai University in 1994, has also received the MBA degree from Donghua University in 2004. He now works as the general manager and chief engineer of China Submarine Cable Construction Corporation, a subsidiary of China Telecom, and participated in the construction/maintenance of many international submarine optical cable systems, including FEA, SMW3, CUCN, APCN2, TPE, APG, NCP and PLCN. He has also taken part in the compilation of several books about submarine cable engineering and related national technical standards.
Early chapters discuss the historical background, research progress, and geological environments in China's sea area. Next, multiple chapters present special topics on geological hazards in China's sea area, including its disaster pregnant environment, mechanisms of disaster change, the development regularity and disaster formation process, and existing or potential dangers and countermeasures. Final chapters present the latest information on the distribution, development, assessment, and risk analysis of marine geological hazards.
This book is an important source of information for government and local policymakers, environmental and marine scientists, and engineers.Discusses the background, current research, and systematically reviews the history, major advances in the studies in the field, and demonstrates the development prospect of this subject.Contains and summarizes the author’s longstanding achievements in the field, as well as includes a wide range of researches conducted both locally and overseas. Systematically summarizes the basic characteristics of the distribution and development of the main types of geological hazards in China seas. Puts forward the scheme of marine geological disaster regionalization of China, and is significant for researches in other countries or regions.
Analysis and Design of Machine Elements is a design-centric textbook for advanced undergraduates majoring in Mechanical Engineering. Advanced students and engineers specializing in product design, vehicle engineering, power machinery, and engineering will also find it a useful reference and practical guide.
