In this book, the authors have tried to apply a well-balanced materials-mechanics approach combined with the coverage of the recent technological developments in the fields of biologic and electronic materials; as a result, this new edition of the world popular textbook may be treated as one of the most modern and thorough publications available for the students.
In order to make sure that the learners have gained a proper understanding of the subject, the authors have presented the basic mechanisms operating at nano- and micro- levels across a very broad range of materials, in the mathematically simple and easy-to-follow way. Such integrated approach will provide readers with a conceptual presentation showing how exactly the microstructure of the materials is controlling their mechanical behavior.
The book is full of informative micrographs and colorful illustrations. In addition to that, the authors have included numerous exercises and live examples for better understanding. There are many empirical equations included in the content of the work. In fact, the book will be useful to all students regardless of their level due to the coverage of all fundamental concepts giving a comprehensive picture in this field, even though it is not intended to serve as an introductory text.
The main content of this title is aimed to cover all important aspects of the fluid mechanics to be used by both professional engineers and students. There are many books on fluid mechanics available today, only some of them are comprehensively addressing all particular needs of the courses in fluid mechanics. Though the present volume has been primarily intended to be used by the students of mechanical engineering, it will also be equally useful for the students of any other engineering discipline.
Moreover, it could be used for the self-study if the readers possesses some basic knowledge of differential equations and calculus. As per the reviews, this is one of the best available graduate textbooks in the field recommended to everyone. The book will provide a truly coherent spread of the technical material necessary to gain the required knowledge. The derivation and explanations contained in the publication is expected to be of great use to all interested readers, not limited to the students but also including practicing engineers, scientists and researchers. Meinhard Schobeiri, the author of the title, has included the end-chapter problems and projects to help readers easier understand the material. It will definitely serve as a very practical and useful addition to the popular texts addressing the important aspects of fluid mechanics.
This work reflects the job of the author in touching literally all highlights of the hydraulic fluids. It is quite compact but very comprehensive publication well worth having. The author did not go deep into any rheological or tribological diatribes in order to keep the content of his book easy to follow for all categories of readers.
As a result, the volume will provide a solid technical overview presented in a very plain language with no dwelling on theories and complex formulas. The author has provided an excellent review of the developments in the field of hydraulic fluids, offers required guidance on all suitable maintenance procedures, and discusses the correct applications and selection of the subject fluids, investigating their chemical/physical properties relating to the operational requirements. The book provides the technical information and data that will be very useful for both students and specialists who are directly involved with hydraulics, concerned with both mechanical components, design of the systems, proper selection and maintenance of the hydraulic fluids.
The content of this reference text was built on the basis of the forty-year practical experience of the author, bringing together exceptionally comprehensive coverage of selection and behavior of the fluids. It also includes a complete technical analysis of the latest advances in synthetic oils...
As it comes quite clear from the title of this booklet, it is fully dedicated to the axial piston units. The content of this training resource has been divided into three parts, namely the basic principles, principles of function, and components. The first part of the book covers the types of the hydraulic circuits, namely open- and closed circuit.
The second part of the textbook, in turn, addresses the bent-axis, including the subject principle, description of the function and calculation principle, forty-degree-tapered piston, rotary group forces etc., and swashplate, again including the principle and functions, calculations and same set of aspects. The last part of the publication is covering the selection of the typical models from the individual groups of products, standard models of design of the swashplate and bent-axis, and a summary of the control devices.
The publication has been officially released by Mannesmann Rexroth to serve as a part of their training program. For the scope of the hydraulic engineering, there are three main types of the circuits to be considered - open/closed/semi-closed circuits. In the present book the authors have been looking into the first two types of the circuit in details. In turn, the circuits of the semi-closed type are considered a mixture of the above mentioned types and are used in various applications...
The book has been specifically designed to provide all interested parties with a practical and useful reference source; it will be of particular use for the plant supervisors, maintenance technicians and supervisors, and practicing plant engineers.
The author of the publication have been mainly focusing on the established best practices that shall be used by the maintenance personnel in order to keep their equipment working at peak reliability level and companies to function in a maximum possible profitability by reducing the maintenance costs and increasing the capacity and productivity of the technical maintenance.
Following all techniques and practices outlined in this volume will definitely result in significant reduction in the number of self-induced failures. The reference materials presented in the book could be used directly on the plant floor to help the maintenance team perform their everyday duties in a very effective manner. The data has been offered in a concise and easy-to-follow format facilitating its use in quite adverse conditions commonly faced at the plant floor.
Each of the subjects has been reduced to the simplest terms in order to make the volume suitable for the widest range of readers. Taking into account that the volume is not specific to any particular type of plant, it thus can will be useful in any facility type.
