Sensors are the eyes, ears, and more, of the modern engineered product or system. The modern automobile would not be what it is today without an entire battery of sensors that monitor, and control, everything from engine performance to passenger safety and comfort. This authoritative reference work, part of Momentum Press’s new Comprehensive Sensors Technology series, edited by Dr. Joe Watson, will offer a complete review of all sensors and their associated controls systems typically found in the modern automotive vehicle.

The ultimate success for placed implants in both dental and medical practice relies on the early stage of osteo-integration (fusing and integrating of placed non-vital implant surface to receiving vital hard tissue - bone structure). This new book explains the three basic requirements for implant success from a surface engineering perspective:

Tubular combustors are cylindrical tubes where flame ignition and propagation occur in a spatially confined, highly controlled environment, in a nearly flat, elongated geometry. This allows for some unique advantages where extremely even heat dispersion is required over a large surface while still maintaining fuel efficiency. Tubular combustors also allow for easy flexibility in type of fuel source, allowing for quick changeover to meet various needs and changing fuel pricing.

Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) fuel cells hold great promise as a potential alternative to conventional fossil-fuel-powered energy sources. However, they produce waste heat, and the water used in their system must be carefully controlled and monitored.

This classic text on fluid flow, heat transfer, and mass transport has been brought up to date in this second edition. The author has added a chapter on "Boiling and Condensation" that expands and rounds out the book's comprehensive coverage on transport phenomena. These new topics are particularly important to current research in renewable energy resources involving technologies such as windmills and solar panels.

Finite Element Analysis is a very popular, computer-based tool that uses a complex system of points called nodes to make a grid called a "mesh." The mesh contains the material and structural properties that define how the structure will react to certain loading conditions, allowing virtual testing and analysis of stresses or changes applied to the material or component design.
