In this book, advanced methods and techniques of monitoring, fault diagnostics, and predictive maintenance for cryogenics are illustrated. In Part I on Background, mainstreams in the related research are reviewed. In Part II of Methods, for monitoring helium distribution and consumption in cryogenic systems for particle accelerators, a virtual flowmeter is presented. Then, for fault diagnostics, two methods, for fault detection on a compressor, and for distributed diagnostics based on a micro-genetic algorithm, are described.

This book addresses several issues related to the metrological characterization of high-performance pulsed power converters. In the introduction a background and state-of-the-art on measurement systems for highperformance power converters are presented. In industrial applications of high performance power converter metrology, specifications are often given in terms of worst-case uncertainty (WCU). For this reason, an analytical model for predicting the WCU of a measurement system is discussed and detailed for instruments affected by Gaussian noise.

A cancer prognosis has the tendency to knock patients and their family off their feet. Nothing can prepare people for the big “C” and it often feels like they are losing control over their own life, where nothing will be the same again.

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.

In this book, an almost new approach to modern thermodynamics has been applied. One or more useful qualitative discussion statements have been extracted from each equation. These and other important statements were numbered and their titles were situated in an index titled “Hilal and Others’ statements, definitions and rules.” This ensures very quick obtaining of the required statements, rules, definitions, equations, and their theoretical base that will ease readers qualitative discussions and calculations.

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.
