This applied thermoscience book covers the basic principles and applications of various types of internal combustion engines. Explores the fundamentals of most types of internal combustion engines with a major emphasis on reciprocating engines. Covers both spark ignition and compression ignition engines as well as those operating on four-stroke cycles and on two-stroke cycles ranging in size from small model airplane engines to the larger stationary engines. Examines recent advancements, such as, Miller cycle analysis, lean burn engines, 2-stroke cycle automobile engines, variable valve timing, and thermal storage.
This book was written to be used as an applied thermoscience textbook in a onesemester, college-level, undergraduate engineering course on internal combustion engines. It provides the material needed for a basic understanding of the operation of internal combustion engines. Students are assumed to have knowledge of fundamental thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics as a prerequisite to get maximum benefit from the text. This book can also be used for self-study and/or as a reference book in the field of engines.
Mind Hacks : Tips & Tricks for Using Your Brain This exploration into the moment-by-moment works of the brain uses cognitive neuroscience to present experiments, tricks, and tips related to vision, motor skills, attention, cognition, subliminal perception. Each "hack" examines specific operations of the brain. By seeing how the brain responds, you'll learn more about how the... IPv6 Essentials IPv6, the next generation Internet Protocol, has been in the works since the early 90s when the rapid growth of the Internet threatened to exhaust existing IP addresses. Drawing on 20 years--operational experience with the existing protocol (IPv4), the new protocol offers scalability, increased security features, real-time traffic support, and...
Theory and Design of CNC Systems (Springer Series in Advanced Manufacturing)
CNC controllers, working as a brain for manufacturing automation, are high valueadded
products accounting for over 30% of the price of machine tools. CNC technology
is generally considered as a measure of the level of manufacturing technology of
a nation, and is currently led by major advanced countries such as USA, Japan, and... Think Bayes
If you know how to program with Python and also know a little about probability, you’re ready to tackle Bayesian statistics. With this book, you'll learn how to solve statistical problems with Python code instead of mathematical notation, and use discrete probability distributions instead of continuous mathematics. Once you...
