David J. Smith
This book provides engineers with the safety and risk assessment tools and techniques they need to work effectively in any safety or reliability critical environment. These tools are primarily statistical. Where David Smith’s book succeeds is by meeting the needs of an applied audience by setting these tools in the context of the design and operation of safety related processes and systems. Now in its Eighth Edition, this is regarded as the core reference in this field, and the success of its approach is reflected in the popularity of this standard work. It deals with all aspects of reliability, safety-related systems, and the assessment and management of risk in a simple and straightforward way, pre-supposing no prior knowledge and dealing simply and realistically with numerical data by using the minimum of mathematical and technical jargon.

Gindis introduces AutoCAD with step by step instructions, stripping away complexities to begin working in AutoCAD immediately. All concepts are explained first in theory, and then shown in practice, helping the reader understand what it is they are doing and why, before they do it. Divided into three parts, the book covers beginning through advanced AutoCAD, including 3D features. Also included is an extensive Appendix for each part, detailing additional useful CAD-related information not often found in other text books The book contains supporting graphics (screen shots) and a summary with a self-test section at the end of each chapter. Also included are drawing examples and exercises, and two running “projects” that the student works on as he/she progresses through the chapters.

The diesel engine has been recognized as the most promising internal combustion engine available today due to its superior thermal efficiency and reliability. By focusing on engine performance and system integration, this book establishes the theory of diesel engine system design, including the approaches used in its modeling and analysis. Diesel Engine System Design links everything diesel engineers need to know about engine performance and system design in order for them to master all the essential topics quickly and apply the techniques to solve practical design problems. It provides detailed coverage of the fundamental concepts and generic techniques in diesel engine system design, presenting the fundamentals of dynamic and static diesel engine system designs by introducing the engine thermodynamic cycle and vehicle powertrain performance, followed by the critical boundary conditions for engine system design in the areas of combustion, emissions, and aftertreatment.

Energy storage, and in particular electrical storage of energy, has become a very talked about topic in circles ranging from lay persons, in regard to hybrid and battery electric vehicles, to professionals, and certainly by legislators and energy policy makers. This book takes a critical look at the physical storage of electricity in the devices known collectively as electrochemical capacitors and particularly as ultracapacitors. Its 12 chapters cover ultracapacitor and advanced battery topics with an emphasis on a clear understanding of fundamental principles, models and applications. But even to professionals, the distinctions between physical and chemical forms of electric energy storage are unclear and, at times, poorly understood, if at all. The reader will appreciate the case studies from commercial to industrial to automotive applications of not only ultracapacitors, but of these power dense components in combination with energy dense battery technologies.
