Nearly 50,000 Americans die from brain injuries annually, with approximately half of all Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) being transportation-related. TBI is a critical and ever-evolving safety topic, with equally important components of injury prevention, consequences, and treatment. This book is part of a 3-volume set which presents a comprehensive look at recent head injury research and applies protective strategies to various injury scenarios, such as passenger vehicles, sports, and blast injuries, or to a particular demographic group, such as children or seniors. This volume features 14 technical papers. Editor Jeffrey A. Pike has selected the most relevant technical papers spanning the early 1990s through the beginning of 2011, including several older papers which provide an essential historical perspective. Each volume in the series also includes a table of references arranged by topic and a new chapter tying together anatomy, injury, and injury mechanism topics.

The J1939 Handbook Supplement is a set of Recommended Practices defining a data network for use in a wide variety of applications, with primary emphasis to date on heavy-duty vehicles. It was designed to support general-purpose information transfer as well as the more demanding tasks of distributed control systems on board a vehicle. The top-level document provides an overview and serves as a master control for common definitions used by multiple applications and industries. The J1939/0X documents define the use of these standards in a particular application or industry, allowing J1939 to be tailored as needed without having to include definitions that do not apply. The intent of J1939 is to allow 'plug and play' capability for any device that is added to the network.

Filament winding is the most efficient method of manufacturing composite shapes. This book explores all aspects of filament winding, including capabilities and limitations of the process, fiber and resin handling, winding theory, software and numerical control, and more. Completely revised and updated from the previous version, the book focuses on automation, with five out of nine chapters discuss aspects of filament winding automation. The remaining chapters introduce mechanical testing, pressure vessels, and a description of industrial applications of filament winding. Photos of winding machines, composite fabrication, and end products accompany the text. Engineers, manufacturers, and instructors will appreciate this book’s practical approach.

Introduction to Optimum Design is the most widely used textbook in engineering optimization and optimum design courses. It is intended for use in a first course on engineering design and optimization at the undergraduate or graduate level within engineering departments of all disciplines, but primarily within mechanical, aerospace and civil engineering. The basic approach of the text is to describe an organized approach to engineering design optimization in a rigorous yet simplified manner, illustrate various concepts and procedures with simple examples, and demonstrate their applicability to engineering design problems. Formulation of a design problem as an optimization problem is emphasized and illustrated throughout the text. Excel and MATLAB are featured throughout as learning and teaching aids. The 3rd edition has been reorganized and enhanced with new material, making the book even more appealing to instructors regardless of the level they teach the course.
