July 2003
Textbook Hardcover

Book Description
The seventh edition of Mechanical Engineering Design marks a return to the basic approaches that have made this book the standard in machine design for over 40 years. At the same time it has been significantly updated and modernized for today's engineering students and professional engineers. Working from extensive market research and reviews of the 6th edition, the new 7th edition features reduced coverage of uncertainty and statistical methods. Statistics is now treated (in chapter 2) as one of several methods available to design engineers, and statistical applications are no longer integrated throughout the text, examples and problem sets. Other major changes include updated coverage of the design process, streamlined coverage of statistics, a more practical overview of materials and materials selection...

Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook
Doc Palmer
0071457666
Dec 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The aim of an effective Maintenance System is to maximize production equipment effectiveness in terms of economic efficiency and profitability. The maintenance system is effective if every effort is applied to eliminate in every case the cause of lost production due to equipment failure or to maximize equipment effectiveness. The most efficient way of achieving this goal is through proper maintenance scheduling and planning. Hand-on experience is crucial for performing successful maintenance. Yet, many new engineers lack the experience to successfully manage a program. This is why so many readers regard the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook as the chief authority for establishing effective maintenance planning and scheduling in the real world. The second edition will add new sections and further...

Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Gas Turbine Theory, 5th edition HIH Saravanamuttoo, GFC Rogers, H Cohen When the First Edition of this book was written fifty years ago, the gas turbine was just becoming established as a powerplant for military aircraft. It took another decade before the gas turbine was introduced to civil aircraft, and this market developed so rapidly that the ocean liner was rendered obsolete. Other markets like naval propulsion, pipeline compression and electrical power applications grew steadily. In recent years the gas turbine, in combination with the steam turbine, has played an ever-increasing role in power generation. Despite the rapid advances in both output and efficiency, the basic theory of the gas turbine has remained unchanged. The layout of this new edition is broadly similar to the original, but greatly...

Book Description
ANNOTATION A readable layman's history of crucial themes in physics, covering Copernican astronomy, Newtonian mechanics, energy and entropy, relativity, conservation principles, and symmetries. FROM THE PUBLISHER Is there an objective world, or is everything relative? Do matter, time and space change, or do they remain constant everywhere in the universe? Is there always a relationship between cause and effect, or do some things "just happen?" Many of our basic ideas about the world have been shaped by science-but seldom are such discoveries accepted easily or willingly. Here are seven of the most important ideas in physics-ideas that shattered the assumptions of dogmatists, philosophers and scientists-explained simply and elegantly. And you don't need a background in mathematics or science to enjoy this fascinating...

Pro/Engineer Wildfire (with CD-ROM containing Pro/E Wildfire Software)
Louis Gary Lamit
0534400833
September 2, 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Utilizing a variety of hands-on lessons, this book introduces students to the basics of Pro/Engineer® Wildfire?, one of the most widely used CAD/CAM software programs in the world. The author's basic premise is that the more parts, assemblies, and drawings one creates using Pro/E® Wildfire, the better one learns the software. With this in mind, each lesson introduces a new set of commands with an incrementally more difficult set of parts while building on previous lessons. The parts created (in Part One of the book) are used to create assemblies (Part Two) and generate drawings (Part Three). Students are able to work with actual completed parts, assemblies, and drawings in a short-lesson format, instead of building large complex projects where basic commands may be overshadowed and lost in a complicated...
