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.

Global market sizes for nanocoatings and coatings are expected to be $14.3 billion and $123 billion, respectively, by the year 2019. Coatings can be classified according to their applications or method of preparation or type of property imparted to the product. They can be either solvent based or water based and may be comprised of polymers or inorganic materials. Nanocoatings with thicknesses less than 100 nm can offer superior performance properties compared with conventional coatings.

The aim of this book is to improve the teaching, understanding and self-learning of thermodynamics through a two part approach: (i) offering a concise model of gas thermodynamics; and (ii) offering graphical approach to solving ideal gas thermodynamics. The book abbreviates the basic topics of ideal gas thermodynamics, including both the first and second laws of thermodynamics, as well as all ideal gas laws for closed systems.

Terry L. Koglin

High Speed Rail Planning, Policy and Engineering looks at the question of where a high-speed passenger rail line would be most productive and how it could be profitable. It investigates the political issues confronting high-speed rail funding and location. This first volume looks at recent achievements in high-speed rail, including record high speeds for trains operating with steel wheels on steel rail. It also covers the history of high-speed rail operations, particularly in the United States.

Most energy systems are suboptimized. Businesses and consumers are so focused on initial costs that they underestimate the effect of operating the energy system over its life. This suboptimization creates a fantastic opportunity to not only make a wise decision financially but also reduce the environmental impact of energy systems. There are three simple tools, known to all mechanical engineers, that when added to traditional thermodynamics, enable an engineer to find the true optimum of an energy system.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) spectroscopies are well-known characterization techniques that reveal the molecular details of a sample non-invasively. The authors discuss how NMR can provide useful information on the microstructure of carbon and its surface properties and explain how C-MEMS/C-NEMS technology can be explored for building improved NMR microdevices.

This book provides an introduction to the state-of-the art in C-MEMS/C-NEMS with an emphasis on lithographically patterned photo-polymers, carbonized in an inert atmosphere. We can expand our perspective considerably by learning from the traditional carbon manufacturing community where researchers deal with a much wider variety of carbon feed stocks such as coal, coconut shell, wood, agricultural wastes, and industrial wastes to make all types of useful carbons.
