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.

Tribology is the scientific and engineering study of friction, and in common practice it most often involves the control and reduction of friction. This is particularly critical to the successful and continued operation of moving parts. This two volume work addresses the types of seals and bearings that are commonly found in most rotating and moving machinery, including how they are designed, how they work and what can be done to ensure that they continue maintain proper lubrication and successful operation.

Research studies within the process industry routinely indicate that the fluid control valve is responsible for 60 to 70% of poor-functioning control systems. Furthermore, valves in general are consistently wrongly selected, regularly misapplied, and often incorrectly installed.

This straightforward guide to compressors seeks to unveil a lot of myths surrounding compressors. In this book, we will be looking at most types of compressors, including the centrifugal compressors, the air compressors, and of course the most troublesome of all compressors, the reciprocating compressors.

Introductory Engineering Graphics concentrates on the main concepts and principles of technical graphics. The chapters and topics are organized in a sequence that makes learning a gradual transition from one level to another. However, each chapter is presented in a self-contained manner and may be studied separately. Chapter 1 discusses guidelines for drafting and Chapter 2 presents the principles and techniques for creating standard multiview drawings. Chapter3 discusses auxiliary view creation, whereas Chapter 4 focuses on section view creation.

Fundamentals of Technical Graphics concentrates on the main concepts and principles of technical graphics. The book is divided into two volumes: volume one contains chapters one to five, whereas volume two comprises of chapters six to ten. Volume one covers the topics of drafting guidelines, free hand sketching, computer design drafting (CDD) systems, geometric and shape construction, and standard multiview drawing creation. Volume two treats the topics of auxiliary views, section views, basic dimensioning, isometric drawings, and working drawings.

Robert F. Moran and Timothy N. Liesching

When a patient is brought into a trauma center in extremis, or becomes that way during a hospital stay, the intervention mantra is airway, breathing and circulation—the ABC’s. We provide the nonspecialist physician, and those in the participating and supporting professions, a quick overview of the meaning of the testing terms in this environment. Many tests, added singly or in small groups over time as clinical and measurement technology evolved, but whose rationale may have become less clear, are de ned and explained.

Forrest E. Ames

An Introduction to Compressible Flow is a concise, yet comprehensive treatment of one-dimensional compressible flow designed to provide mechanical and aerospace engineering students with the background they need for aerodynamics and turbomachinery courses. This book covers isentropic flow, normal shock waves, oblique shock waves, and Prandtl-Meyer flow and their applications. The first chapter reviews the physics of air, control volume analysis and provides a review of thermodynamics.
