The authors have also identified the key issues of the rectification of the relevant faults using the vibration analysis. The content of the volume also features a coverage of the different techniques of the predictive maintenance, for example oil and particle analysis, infra-red thermography and UT, i.e. ultrasonic inspection. They have used all recent developments and techniques. The readers who spend some time with this book will get a good understanding of the process of measurement and proper application of the vibration analysis for different faults in machinery.

It contains lots of informative materials useful for the machinery maintenance professionals. Among the areas covered there are detection of the unbalance and misalignments, various belt and bearing problems, as well as the failures in the gearboxes. The students will also fin this volume useful for making the relevant presentations and for the homework.

In the last years, the increasing number of the complex problems has required much more technical knowledge  be possessed by the engineers to be able to address and mitigate them. Such problems include but are not limited to the design of various engineering systems and subsystems, their design/re-design and interaction of other systems.

The present publication by Atila Ertas presents readers the fundamental concepts of the mechanical engineering in the context of the design process, providing all of them, and especially non-mechanical engineers, with the required knowledge and understanding of the most important mechanical aspects of a project, thus making the collaboration in transdisciplinary teams a bit easier. The author as managed to combine in a single volume the statics and dynamics, together with the vibration and material strength, offering a practical reference for design.

The book starts with the comprehensive overview of the PtD, standing for the "prevention through design", giving an idea of the occupational HSE needs and presents the condensed introduction to the engineering statics and dynamics, failure theories and various dynamic loadings.

The content also includes numerous real-life examples of the design and analysis together with the practical applications demonstrating how exactly the transdisciplinary knowledge could be applied in practice. The book shall be suitable for the students willing to understand the basics of engineering mechanics, as well as the professionals in the industry.

Here is an excellent textbook on classical mechanics that was prepared for students who specialize in physics. As per the author, the main difference of this book from the other available textbooks is a separation of the basics and axioms from various practical applications. The publication is arranged in ten chapters and appendices. For sure, it will be very useful to the students and lecturers. In fact, the scope of the present volume s twofold.

The intention of that author was not to blur the physics with math intricacies, that is why all required mathematical techniques have been transferred to the appendices at the end of the book. It is very important to duly realize that physics is not considered an exact science; it is rather the approximation of the math description of various processes in nature. The author has made an attempt to concentrate mostly on the practical applications and different calculation techniques rather than on the pure theory.

Though the methods and structure of theoretical physics are extremely interesting, it is still indispensable to possess a proper and thorough understanding of the theory with the fundamental results if you want to properly handle and apply them. That is why this publication shall serve more as an introduction to theoretical mechanics rather than to the formal theoretical physics. The book will really be very useful for all students and also to the engineers of various disciplines.​

This perfect introductory publication that was specifically written and released to explain the very fundamentals of the classical theoretical mechanics. It starts with the chapter providing the very general overview of the theoretical mechanics, including the laws of motion, vectors and their equality together with all associated vector operations, position and velocity, acceleration, and relevant problems.

The second chapter of the volume is dedicated to the generalized systems of coordinates, including the definitions and theorems, as well as examples of such systems, basis vectors and metric tensor, numerous theorems and information related to the application to acceleration. The third chapter of the title is dealing with the differential equations, including their linear/non-linear solutions and numerical solutions. In the fourth chapter the author focuses on the one-dimensional motion, covering the associated definitions and theorems, while the following chapter concentrated on the particle motion in 2D and 3D.

In turn, the sixth chapter is covering the accelerated frames of reference, while the seventh chapter is dealing with the systems of interacting particles. The remaining chapters cover the rigid bodies and special theory of relativity. All theorems and other theoretical chapters are supplemented with several appendices...

This completely revised and best-selling work is covering all latest way of analyzing different stress and creating vessels capable of surviving fatigue, shocks and high pressures, high temperatures and irradiation, as well as other hostile environments. The current release of the volume includes several new chapters dedicated to the residual stress, autofrettage vessels and influence of the Bauschinger effect, as adopted by ASME.

Among the other new areas, we would mention the design of various tubular elements and tube seats, and utilization of the PWHT, standing for the post-weld heat treatment, to effect the residual stress. The text of the publication is supplemented with numerous live examples of combined creep and fatigue, providing very valuable practical help. John Harvey, the author of this book, has also discussed the matter of extending the working life of the pressure vessels, together with the effective cost cutting ways with no quality sacrificed.

He has also updated the respond to the constantly increasing demand for the high strength and lightweight pressure vessels in various industries, including petroleum and chemical industries, in addition to the growing need for the vessels that could resist high pressures, for example ones expected in the subsea exploration, offshore drilling and mining of minerals. The volume will be found interesting by all engineers directly involved in the design, construction and further testing of the pressure vessels.

The present publication deals with the formulating of the various model-based rules of design for the proper conception of both adaptronic/mechatronic systems; it is addressing the comparison of actuator classes for the particular real-life applications and is also offering correct answers to the FAQs.

The readers will definitely get the due understanding of all relationships there between the geometry of the actuator and quantities of the primary outputs, how scalable could be the actuators that are basing on the same principle, how are the output quantities that are relating to the geometry and to mechanical load, etc.

The active mechanical systems, including structures and mechanisms, it is increasingly important to consider the coupling between passive/active elements of the mechanical systems at the earliest possible stages of the design.

That is the reason why it is considered really necessary to establish the reliable models of performance of the actuators as functions of the key design parameters/variables for integration of the actuators in the preliminary procedures and using the optimization approach. This publication is expected to be very useful to all professionals of the industry, for example designers of actuators and machines.​
