Do you ever feel like you're at the mercy of auto repair facilities? This book will give you important tips for finding a good mechanic. One doesn't have to know much about car repair, but it does offer a brief rundown on engine function. Generally, it's not easy to know whether you're getting a good job done. The author's tips just might help you figure out who the best people are for maintaining and repairing your vehicle(s). This book is especially helpful for a young woman out on her own who has to find a reliable mechanic. The author's father gave her some valuable tips for doing just that, and each time she heeded his advice, it served her well.
Written primarily to support a Junior-Senior level sequence of courses in Mechanical Engineering Design, this text takes the viewpoint that <i>failure prevention</i> is the cornerstone concept underlying all mechanical design activity. The text is presented in two parts, <i>Part I--Engineering Principles</i>, containing 7 chapters, and <i>Part II--Design Applications</i>, containing 13 chapters. Due to its organization, the text can also be conveniently used as the basis for continuing education courses or short-courses directed toward graduate engineers, as well as a reference book for mechanical designers engaged in professional practice.
This book is intended as an introduction to classical water wave theory for the college senior or first year graduate student. The material is self-contained; almost all mathematical and engineering concepts are presented or derived in the text, thus making the book accessible to practicing engineers as well.The book commences with a review of fluid mechanics and basic vector concepts. The formulation and solution of the governing boundary value problem for small amplitude waves are developed and the kinematic and pressure fields for short and long waves are explored. The transformation of waves due to variations in depth and their interactions with structures are derived. Wavemaker theories and the statistics of ocean waves are reviewed. The application of the water particle motions and pressure fields are applied to the calculation of wave forces on small and large objects. Extension of the linear theory results to several nonlinear wave properties is presented. Each chapter concludes with a set of homework problems exercising and sometimes extending the material presented in the chapter. An appendix provides a description of nine experiments which can be performed, with little additional equipment, in most wave tank facilities.
