  • Rubber recycling : challenges and developments / edited by Jin Kuk Kim and four others

    Rubber is used in a vast number of products, from tyres on vehicles to disposable surgical gloves. Increasingly both manufacturers and legislators are realising that recycling is essential for environmental sustainability and can improve the cost of manufacture. The volume of rubber waste produced globally makes it difficult to manage as accumulated waste rubber, especially in the form of tyres, can pose a significant fire risk. Recycling rubber not only prevents this problem but can produce new materials with desirable properties that virgin rubbers lack.

    This book presents an up-to-date overview of the fundamental and applied aspects of renewability and recyclability of rubber materials, emphasising existing recycling technologies with significant potential for future applications along with a detailed outline of new technology based processing of rubber to reuse and recycle. This book will be of interest to researchers in both academia and industry as well as postgraduate students working in polymer chemistry, materials processing, materials science and engineering.

  • Wind energy harvesting : micro- to small-scale turbines / Ravi Anant Kishore, Colin Stewart, Shashank Priya
    TJ 820 K57 2018

    This book provides the fundamental concepts required for the development of an efficient small-scale wind turbine. For centuries, engineers and scientists have used wind turbines of all shapes and sizes to harvest wind energy. Large-scale wind turbines have been successful at producing great amounts of power when deployed in sites with vast, open space, such as in fi elds or in offshore waters. For environments with limited space, such as dense urban environments, small-scale wind turbines are an attractive alternative for taking advantage of the ubiquity of wind. However, many of today's tools for aerodynamic design and analysis were originally developed for large-scale turbines and do not scale down to these smaller devices. Arranged in a systematic and comprehensive manner, complete with supporting examples, Wind Energy Harvesting: Micro- To Small-Scale Turbines is a useful reference for undergraduate and graduate level classes on energy harvesting, sustainable energy, and fl uid dynamics, and an introduction to the field for non-technical readers.

  • Aircraft aerodynamic design : geometry and optimization / András Sóbester, Alexander Forrester

    Optimal aircraft design is impossible without a parametric representation of the geometry of the airframe. We need a mathematical model equipped with a set of controls, or design variables, which generates different candidate airframe shapes in response to changes in the values of these variables. This model's objectives are to be flexible and concise, and capable of yielding a wide range of shapes with a minimum number of design variables. Moreover, the process of converting these variables into aircraft geometries must be robust. Alas, flexibility, conciseness and robustness can seldom be achieved simultaneously.

    Aircraft Aerodynamic Design: Geometry and Optimization addresses this problem by navigating the subtle trade-offs between the competing objectives of geometry parameterization. It beginswith the fundamentals of geometry-centred aircraft design, followed by a review of the building blocks of computational geometries, the curve and surface formulations at the heart of aircraft geometry. The authors then cover a range of legacy formulations in the build-up towards a discussion of the most flexible shape models used in aerodynamic design (with a focus on lift generating surfaces). The book takes a practical approach and includes MATLAB®, Python and Rhinoceros® code, as well as 'real-life' example case studies.

    Key features:nbsp;

    Covers effective geometry parameterization within the context of design optimization Demonstrates how geometry parameterization is an important element of modern aircraft design Includes code and case studies which enable the reader to apply each theoretical concept either as an aid to understanding or as a building block of their own geometry model Accompanied by a website hosting codes

    Aircraft Aerodynamic Design: Geometry and Optimization is a practical guide for researchers and practitioners in the aerospace industry, and a reference for graduate and undergraduate students in aircraft design and multidisciplinary design optimization.

  • The Triumph of the Sun in 2000-2020 How Solar Energy Conquered the World

    Dramatic forest fires in California, flooding in Mozambique, unusual heat waves in Europe, hurricanes of strength never seen before--the world's climate is getting out of control. The list of human casualties and damage in billions of euros and dollars is getting longer day by day. Weather experts and climatologists make it clear that global carbon dioxide emissions are accelerating, and as a consequence, the world's climate is becoming unpredictable.

    This book, an updated edition of The Triumph of the Sun: The Energy of the New Century , is not another disaster report. It brings good news.

  • Productivity machines : German appropriations of American technologies from mass production to computer automation / Corinna Schlombs
    TS 73 S35 2019eb

    How productivity culture and technology became emblematic of the American economic system in pre- and postwar Germany.

    The concept of productivity originated in a statistical measure of output per worker or per work-hour, calculated by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. A broader productivity culture emerged in 1920s America, as Henry Ford and others linked methods of mass production and consumption to high wages and low prices. These ideas were studied eagerly by a Germany in search of economic recovery after World War I, and, decades later, the Marshall Plan promoted productivity in its efforts to help post-World War II Europe rebuild. In Productivity Machines , Corinna Schlombs examines the transatlantic history of productivity technology and culture in the two decades before and after World War II. She argues for the interpretive flexibility of productivity: different groups viewed productivity differently at different times. Although it began as an objective measure, productivity came to be emblematic of the American economic system; post-World War II West Germany, however, adapted these ideas to its own political and economic values.

    Schlombs explains that West German unionists cast a doubtful eye on productivity's embrace of plant-level collective bargaining; unions fought for codetermination--the right to participate in corporate decisions. After describing German responses to US productivity, Schlombs offers an in-depth look at labor relations in one American company in Germany--that icon of corporate America, IBM. Finally, Schlombs considers the emergence of computer technology--seen by some as a new symbol of productivity but by others as the means to automate workers out of their jobs.

  • Dear Neil Armstrong Letters to the First Man from All Mankind / edited by James R. Hansen
    TL 789.85 A75A4 2020

    In the years between the historic first moonlanding by Apollo 11 on July 20,1969, and his death at age 82 on August 25, 2012, Neil Armstrong receivedhundreds of thousands of cards and letters from all over the world,congratulating him, praising him, requesting pictures and autographs, andasking him what must have seemed to him to be limitless--and occasionallyintrusive--questions. Of course, all the famous astronauts received fan mail,but the sheer volume Armstrong had to deal with for more than four decadesafter his moon landing was staggering.

    Today, the preponderance of those letters--some 75,000 of them--are preserved in the archives atPurdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. Dear Neil Armstrong: Letters to the First Man on the Moon publishesa careful sampling of these letters--roughly 400--reflecting the various kinds ofcorrespondence that Armstrong received along with representative samples of hisreplies. Selected and edited by James R. Hansen, Armstrong's authorizedbiographer and author of the New YorkTimes best seller First Man: The Lifeof Neil A. Armstrong , this collection sheds light on Armstrong's enduring impact and offers an intimate glimpse intothe cultural meanings of human spaceflight. Readers will explore what thethousands of letters to Neil Armstrong meant not only to those who wrote them, butas a snapshot of one of humankind's greatest achievements in the twentiethcentury. They will see how societies and cultures projected their own meaningsonto one of the world's great heroes and iconic figures.

  • For the hog killing, 1979 / photographs by Tanya Amyx Berry ; essay by Wendell Berry ; edited by Ben Aguilar
    TS 1964 K4B47 2019

    "The traditional neighborly work of killing a hog and preparing it as food for humans is either a fine art or a shameful mess. It requires knowledge, experience, skill, good sense, and sympathy ," writes Wendell Berry in the essay portion of this book. In November 1979 as in years before, neighborly families gathered to do one of the ceremonious jobs of farm life: hog killing. Tanya Berry had been given a camera by New Farm magazine to photograph Kentucky farmers at work, and for two days at the farm of Owen and Loyce Flood in Henry County, she captured this culmination of a year's labor raising livestock. Here, in the resulting photographs, published for the first time, the American agrarian tradition is shown at its most harmonious, with strong men and women toiling with shared purpose towards a common wealth.

    Tanya Berry reveals intimate, expressive moments: the teams of young men hoisting animals by physical strength onto a gambrel and wagon for butchering, women grinding meat and mixing sausage and readying hams for preservation, and the solidarity of human beings coming together in reverence for the food they would eat, the lives and bodies which would be taken, and those which would be strengthened.

  • Lean for the process industries : dealing with complexity / Peter L. King

    Compared to its widespread implementation across almost all areas of production, Lean improvement efforts lag within the process industries. While many innovators have successfully applied Lean principles to these industries during the past three decades, most of those pioneering efforts were never recorded to guide the improvement efforts of others.

    Drawing on more than 40 years of application experience at one of the world's largest chemical and materials manufacturers, coupled with 10 years in private practice, Peter King corrects this void by providing the first comprehensive resource written explicitly for change agents within the process industries. Focusing on areas where the improvement needs of the process industry differ from parts assembly manufacturing, Lean for the Process Industries: Dealing with Complexity, Second Edition:

    Covers each of the eight wastes commonly described in Lean literature, looking at how they manifest themselves in process operations.  Explains how to adapt value stream mapping for process operations.  Shows how to identify the root causes of bottlenecks, and how to manage them to optimize flow until they can be eliminated. Provides practical techniques to overcome the barriers which have prevented the application of Cellular Manufacturing to process operations.  Discusses the role of business leadership in a Lean strategy, describing both enabling and counter-productive management behaviors 

    Since the publication of the first edition of this book, Peter King has been busy consulting with food, beverage, gasoline additive, and nutraceutical companies -- these new experiences have broadened his perspectives on certain Lean processes and have given him a richer set of examples to discuss in this new edition.

    While Value Stream Mapping is a very powerful tool to understand flow, bottlenecks, and waste in an operation, the traditional format as presented in many other books does not describe all of the data required to fully understand process flow and its detractors. This new edition highlights the necessary additions with examples of why they are useful.

    Product wheel scheduling achieves production leveling in a far more comprehensive and effective way than traditional heijunka methods. This edition has a more thorough description of the wheel concept and design steps, and more examples from actual applications.

  • Tribocatalysis, Tribochemistry, and Tribocorrosion / Czeslaw Kajdas
    This book focuses on the triboemission of low-energy electrons from the freshly generated surface. These electrons play the most crucial role in the chemical reactions at the tribological interface. New models and TIP (thermodymanics of irreversible processes) describe in detail the behavior of emitted electrons which lower the activation energy of the chemical reactions. This book also highlights tribocatalysis phenomena as examples of the lowering of the activation energy. A book titled Tribocatalysis has never been published before this.

  • Hydrostatic testing, corrosion, and microbiologically influenced corrosion : a field manual for control and prevention / Reza Javaherdashti, Farzaneh Akvan
    TS 283 J38 2017eb

    Hydrostatic Testing, Corrosion, and Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion: A Field Manual for Control and Prevention teaches industry professionals, managers, and researchers how to combat corrosion failure associated with hydrotesting. It discusses how a test liquid must be selected, how corrosion by bacteria should be controlled, and how to eliminate the risk of leakage. Rather than teaching how hydrotests should be conducted, it helps the reader evaluate the quality of a hydrotest that's already been conducted in terms of oxygen scavenger use, biocide testing, inhibitor addition, and water quality and explains the tasks that top and middle management must ensure are taken with respect to corrosion assessment of hydrotesting. The manual also discusses microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) as the main corrosion mechanism related to post-hydrotesting and offers essential knowledge on combating this corrosion process. In addition to being a manual for top and middle management on how to deal with corrosion, this book also:
