  • Fundamentals of aerodynamics / John D. Anderson, Jr
    TL 570 A677 2017

    Fundamentals of Aerodynamics is meant to be read. The writing style is intentionally conversational in order to make the book easier to read. The book is designed to talk to the reader; in part to be a self-teaching instrument. Learning objectives have been added to each chapter to reflect what is believed to be the most important items to learn from that particular chapter. This edition emphasizes the rich theoretical and physical background of aerodynamics, and marbles in many historical notes to provide a background as to where the aerodynamic technology comes from. Also, new with this edition, are "Integrated Work Challenges" that pertain to the chapter as a whole, and give the reader the opportunity to integrate the material in that chapter, in order to solve a "bigger picture".

    McGraw-Hill Education's Connect, is also available as an optional, add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student's work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a "multi-step solution" which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty.

  • Assembling and supplying the ISS : the Space Shuttle fulfills its mission / David J. Shayler
    TL797
    This book tells the story of the International Space Station from the perspective of the space shuttle's involvement in how the assembly and re-supply of the station evolved. It captures how the intricate and wide-reaching infrastructure required by each mission was managed and provides a comprehensive view of the relationship between the shuttle and ISS. The success in assembling the ISS over a period of 13 years came after gaining experience by sending the space shuttle to the Russian Mir space station in a three-year period during the second half of the 1990s, and after years of detailed study and evaluation. This book reviews those developments and how years of planning, hopes and dreams were turned into reality between 1995 and 2011. It provides detailed reviews of the space shuttle missions at space stations, including how the skills were developed to achieve these missions, what happened on those flights, and how lessons learned from one mission were applied to subsequent operations. Note that no mission failed in its main objective across nine Mir dockings and one rendezvous mission and 37 shuttle flights to the ISS. The smoothness and reliability of actual station operations masks the years of hard work that went into each mission both in space and on the ground. Using first-hand research, personal interviews and contemporary sources, an alternative story of the space shuttle is portrayed.

  • Control of mechatronic systems / Levent Güvenç, Bilin Aksun Güvenç, Burak Demirel and Mümin Tolga Emirler
    TJ 163.12 G88 2017eb

    This book introduces researchers and advanced students with a basic control systems background to an array of control techniques which they can easily implement and use to meet the required performance specifications for their mechatronic applications. It is the result of close to two decades of work of the authors on modeling, simulating and controlling different mechatronic systems from the motion control, automotive control and micro and nano-mechanical systems control areas. The methods presented in the book have all been tested by the authors and a very large group of researchers, who have produced practically implementable controllers with highly successful results.

    The approach that is recommended in this book is to first start with a conventional control method which may then be cascaded with a feedforward controller if the input is known or can be measured with a preview; to add a disturbance observer if unknown disturbances are to be rejected and if regulation of the uncertain plant about a nominal model is desired; and to add a repetitive controller to take care of any periodic inputs of fixed and known period. Case studies ranging from road vehicle yaw stability control and automated path following, to decoupling control of piezotube actuators in an atomic force microscope are presented. Parameter space based methods are used in the book for achieving robust controllers.

    Control of Mechatronic Systems is essential reading for researchers and advanced students who want to be exposed to control methods that have been field tested in a wide variety of mechatronic applications, and for practicing engineers who design and implement feedback control systems.


  • Large scale grid integration of renewable energy sources / edited by Antonio Moreno-Munoz
    TJ 808 L37 2017eb

    As renewable energy sources have reached grid parity in many countries, the key to further growth of the share of renewables in the power mix is their integration with the power system. This requires a number of technical developments, for example in power electronics, to meet the need for increased flexibility and rapid dispatch. This book explores the new approaches to meet these challenges, such as increasing interconnection capacity among geographical areas, hybridization of different distributed energy resources and building up demand response capabilities.

    Topics covered include power grid as part of a 100% renewable energy system; international requirements for large integration of renewable energy sources; nowcasting and short-term wind forecasting for wind energy management; solutions and active measures for wind power integration; grid Integration of large-scale PV plants; extensive use of renewable energy resources: needs, conditions and enabling technologies; DC distribution systems and microgrids; distributed energy resources integration and demand response; stochastic demand modelling; and distributed micro-storage systems at residential level in smart communities with high penetration of photovoltaic generation.

    This book is essential reading for researchers involved with clean energy generation and power systems.


  • Flexible Robot Manipulators : Modelling, Simulation and Control / M. Osman Tokhi and Abdul Azad
    TS 191.8 F594 2017eb

    Industrial automation is driving the development of robot manipulators in various applications, with much of the research effort focussed on flexible manipulators and their advantages compared to their rigid counterparts. This book reports recent advances and new developments in the analysis and control of these robot manipulators.

    After a general overview of flexible manipulators the book introduces a range of modelling and simulation techniques based on the Lagrange equation formulation, parametric approaches based on linear input/output models using system identification techniques, neuro-modelling approaches, and numerical techniques for dynamic characterisation using finite difference and finite element techniques. Control techniques are then discussed, including a range of open-loop and closed-loop control techniques based on classical and modern control methods including neuro and iterative control, and a range of soft-computing control techniques based on fuzzy logic, neural networks, and evolutionary and bio-inspired optimisation paradigms. Finally the book presents SCEFMAS, a software environment for analysis, design, simulation and control of flexible manipulators.

    Flexible Robot Manipulators is essential reading for advanced students of robotics, mechatronics and control engineering and will serve as a source of reference for research in areas of modelling, simulation and control of dynamic flexible structures in general and, specifically, of flexible robotic manipulators.

    TJ1058
    This book opens with an explanation of the vibrations of a single degree-of-freedom (dof) system for all beginners. Subsequently, vibration analysis of multi-dof systems is explained by modal analysis. Mode synthesis modeling is then introduced for system reduction, which aids understanding in a simplified manner of how complicated rotors behave. Rotor balancing techniques are offered for rigid and flexible rotors through several examples. Consideration of gyroscopic influences on the rotordynamics is then provided and vibration evaluation of a rotor-bearing system is emphasized in terms of forward and backward whirl rotor motions through eigenvalue (natural frequency and damping ratio) analysis. In addition to these rotordynamics concerning rotating shaft vibration measured in a stationary reference frame, blade vibrations are analyzed with Coriolis forces expressed in a rotating reference frame. Other phenomena that may be assessed in stationary and rotating reference frames include stability characteristics due to rotor internal damping and instabilities due to asymmetric shaft stiffness and thermal unbalance behavior.

  • The Canadian space program : from Black Brant to the International Space Station / Andrew B. Godefroy
    TL789.8.C2

    Canada's space efforts from its origins towards the end of the Second World War through to its participation in the ISS today are revealed in full in this complete and carefully researched history. Employing recently declassified archives and many never previously used sources, author Andrew B. Godefroy explains the history of the program through its policy and many fascinating projects. He assesses its effectiveness as a major partner in both US and international space programs, examines its current national priorities and capabilities, and outlines the country's plans for the future.

    Despite being the third nation to launch a satellite into space after the Soviet Union and the United States; being a major partner in the US space shuttle program with the iconic Canadarm; being an international leader in the development of space robotics; and acting as one of the five major partners in the ISS, the Canadian Space Program remains one of the least well-known national efforts of the space age. This book attempts to shed a clearer light on the progress made by the CSA thus far, with more ambitious goals ahead. Technical information, diagrams, glossaries, a chronology, and extensive notes on sources are also included in this volume.

  • Linking the space shuttle and space stations : early docking technologies from concept to implementation / David J. Shayler
    TL1095
    This book reviews the long, and at times difficult, path in matching the unique capabilities of the Space Shuttle with the creation of a large research station in Earth orbit. As the 1970s progressed it became clear that the Shuttle would not fly as early as hoped because of tight budgets and adjustments to the design of the space station. It was during this period that cooperation with the Soviet Union forged a new relationship in space from which emerged the Apollo Soyuz Test Project. Flown in the summer of 1975 the successful international docking mission encouraged further joint manned space programs between the two countries.
    While studies and debates continued into the design of the large space stations, and Shuttle development slowly progressed, and thoughts turned to further cooperation with the Soviets in the 1980s. During the same time period plans for a possible return to renovate the Skylab space station had to be abandoned when increased solar activities forced the unmanned Skylab to re-enter the atmosphere prematurely. By 1984 the internationally supported Space Station Freedom, to be assembled from elements launched by the Space Shuttle, had been authorized.
    The background to this rich history is explored in this book, together with the crucial developments in the skills and procedures that were essential to the subsequent creation of the much larger International Space Station. The book closes with a summary of the nine missions to dock the Shuttle to the Russian Space Station Mir between 1995 and 1998, what was learned from those missions and the lessons which directly applied to the far more complex International Space Station.

  • To Mars and beyond, fast! : how plasma propulsion will revolutionize space exploration / Franklin Chang Diaz and Erik Seedhouse
    TL793
    As advanced space propulsion moves slowly from science fiction to achievable reality, the Variable Specific Impulse Magnetoplasma Rocket, or VASIMR, is a leading contender for making 'Mars in a month' a possibility. The current book describes this landmark technology grounded in plasma physics and offering a practical technological solution for exploring beyond low Earth orbit in the decades to come. Developed by Ad Astra Rockets, which was founded by astronaut Franklin Chang-Diaz and backed by NASA, its first commercial tests are imminent. VASIMR heats plasma to extreme temperatures using radio waves. Strong magnetic fields then funnel this plasma out the back of the engine, creating thrust. The continuous propulsion may place long, fast interplanetary journeys within reach in the near future. While scientists dream of the possibilities of using fusion or well-controlled matter-antimatter interactions to propel spacecraft fast and far, that goal is still some way over the horizon. VASIMR at last provides a more attainable propulsion technology that is based on the matter-antimatter concept.

  • Airworthiness : an introduction to aircraft certification and operations / Filippo De Florio
    TL 671.1 D34 2016

    Airworthiness: An Introduction to Aircraft Certification and Operations, Third Edition, once again proves to be a valuable, user-friendly reference guide for certification engineers engaged in professional training and practical work in regulatory agencies and aircraft engineering companies. The discussions reflect the recent changes in the EASA-FAA regulations and also include the concepts of flight safety and airworthiness; the ICAO and civil aviation authorities; airworthiness requirements; type certifications and the type-certification process; production of products, parts, and appliances; certifications of airworthiness; and rules for spaceworthiness.

    Since publication of the second edition, airworthiness regulation and certification around the world have gone through significant changes. For example, EASA structure has completely changed, FAA rules are no longer applicable, substantial changes have been made in the international airworthiness regulations and certification procedures, and unmanned aircraft have evolved technically and operationally. The changes in airworthiness regulations in the last five years have been striking, changing the way in which we look at airworthiness and certification processes around the world.



    Includes updates throughout to reflect changes to the airworthiness regulations of the two most influential ruling authorities-EASA and FAA Includes an update on remotely piloted air systems as well as space vehicles Provides guidelines to shape a comprehensive 'certification map' including comparisons, explanations, and backgrounds of institutions and processes Features a new chapter "Certificates of Airworthiness and Permits to Fly" that provides an overall description of the requirements governing the certificates of airworthiness
