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.

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.

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.
