Hydrostatic and Hybrid Bearing Design Book Review:

Hydrostatic and Hybrid Bearing Design is a 15-chapter book that focuses on the bearing design and testing. This book first describes the application of hydrostatic bearings, as well as the device pressure, flow, force, power, and temperature. Subsequent chapters discuss the load and flow rate of thrust pads; circuit design, flow control, load, and stiffness; and the basis of the design procedures and selection of tolerances. The specific types of bearings, their design, dynamics, and experimental methods and testing are also shown. This book will be very valuable to students of engineering design and lubrication.

Hydrostatic Lubrication Book Review:

Hydrostatic lubrication is characterized by the complete separation of the conjugated surfaces of a kinematic pair, by means of a film of fluid, which is pressurized by an external piece of equipment. Its distinguishing features are lack of wear, low friction, high load capacity, a high degree of stiffness and the ability to damp vibrations. This book reviews the study of externally pressurized lubrication, both from the theoretical and the technical point of view, thereby serving the needs of both researchers as well as students and technical designers. In this connection, design suggestions for the most common types of hydrostatic bearings have been included, as well as a number of examples. A comprehensive bibliography is included with each chapter providing up to date references for more in depth coverage.

Systems Engineering Book Review:

This translation brings a landmark systems engineering (SE) book to English-speaking audiences for the first time since its original publication in 1972. For decades the SE concept championed by this book has helped engineers solve a wide variety of issues by emphasizing a top-down approach. Moving from the general to the specific, this SE concept has situated itself as uniquely appealing to both highly trained experts and anybody managing a complex project. Until now, this SE concept has only been available to German speakers. By shedding the overtly technical approach adopted by many other SE methods, this book can be used as a problem-solving guide in a great variety of disciplines, engineering and otherwise. By segmenting the book into separate parts that build upon each other, the SE concept’s accessibility is reinforced. The basic principles of SE, problem solving, and systems design are helpfully introduced in the first three parts. Once the fundamentals are presented, specific case studies are covered in the fourth part to display potential applications. Then part five offers further suggestions on how to effectively practice SE principles; for example, it not only points out frequent stumbling blocks, but also the specific points at which they may appear. In the final part, a wealth of different methods and tools, such as optimization techniques, are given to help maximize the potential use of this SE concept. Engineers and engineering students from all disciplines will find this book extremely helpful in solving complex problems. Because of its practicable lessons in problem-solving, any professional facing a complex project will also find much to learn from this volume.

Handbook of Machining with Grinding Wheels Book Review:

Grinding is a crucial technology that employs specific abrasive processes for the fabrication of advanced products and surfaces. Handbook of Machining with Grinding Wheels, Second Edition highlights important industry developments that can lead to improved part quality, higher productivity, and lower costs. Divided into two parts, the book begins with an explanation of grinding behavior and ends with a focus on new and emerging industrial applications. While the first edition focused on the basics of abrasive machining technology and presented a unified approach to machining with grinding wheels, the second edition ties in the continued need for traditional processes in conjunction with the latest applications. This book highlights new research topics that include: nanotechnology, alternative energy, and additive manufacturing, compares related approaches, and provides numerous references throughout the book. New in the Second Edition: Contains the latest information on abrasives, bonds, and dressing Updates classic stability lobes for grinding Introduces a new method for tracking dynamic instability in centerless grinding Provides a section in the chapter on ultrasonic-assisted grinding, which contains recent work on modelling of the process Adds material on fluid cooling Presents experimental results for in-process feedback to the grinding process Includes new examples on grinding machine technology (particularly for dressing) A single source reference covering every aspect of the grinding process, Handbook of Machining with Grinding Wheels functions as a definitive guide to grinding technology for both practicing engineers and students studying graduate-level courses (such as abrasive machining; grinding R&D; metal removal processes; machining of brittle materials; and principles of cutting).
