This book is an essential volume for any lawyer litigating a helicopter crash case. No other book is devoted exclusively to the representation of plaintiffs in helicopter crash cases. These unique cases require a different approach and techniques, which you will learn from accomplished trial lawyer Gary Robb, who has used these same techniques in a brilliant career as a trial lawyer. In this book, Robb leads you through the myriad complexities that inevitably arise from cases involving these unique flying machines. This indispensable text travels through the different knowledge and skill sets critical in the successful handling of these cases, ranging from the basic elements of helicopter structure and flight, through the preliminary factual investigation, filing the case, discovery, common defenses, damages and trial. Real helicopter case examples are utilized throughout so as to give context to the suggestions and techniques discussed.

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.

Semi-active suspension systems promise weight efficiencies, cost savings, and higher safety and comfort compared to other types of electronically-controlled suspensions currently in use. With the growing emphasis on fuel economy, reduced CO2 emissions, and cost reductions for all vehicles, these semi-active systems are set to become a growing part of overall vehicle design, but coverage of them in standard automotive engineering texts is currently limited. This book provides a comprehensive overview of semi-active suspension systems with an emphasis on performance analysis and control design. Several different approaches using different control theories are presented and evaluated in the book, with methodology provided to analyze and evaluate suspension performances while identifying optimal performance bounds.

By the early 1960s, the Ford Motor Company, built to bring automobile transportation to the masses, was falling behind. Young Henry Ford II, who had taken the reins of his grandfather’s company with little business experience to speak of, knew he had to do something to shake things up. Baby boomers were taking to the road in droves, looking for speed not safety, style not comfort. Meanwhile, Enzo Ferrari, whose cars epitomized style, lorded it over the European racing scene. He crafted beautiful sports cars, "science fiction on wheels," but was also called "the Assassin" because so many drivers perished while racing them. Go Like Hell tells the remarkable story of how Henry Ford II, with the help of a young visionary named Lee Iacocca and a former racing champion turned engineer, Carroll Shelby, concocted a scheme to reinvent the Ford company. They would enter the high-stakes world of European car racing, where an adventurous few threw safety and sanity to the wind.

The Japanese automotive industry enjoyed spectacular success in the 1980s. This was largely due to the so-called “Lean Production System” – the combination of efficient production, and effective supplier and product development systems. In the 1990s, the industry fell on hard times because of the Japanese asset price bubble and extreme currency appreciation. In Japan and the Global Automotive Industry, industry specialist Koichi Shimokawa draws on his thirty years of research and fieldwork with Japanese and American firms, to show how the Japanese automotive industry has managed to recover from this difficult period. Using data and source material that were previously unavailable to the English-speaking world, he shows how firms like Toyota were able to change to compete in increasingly globalized markets. In addition, the book addresses the two major challenges to the current industry model: the rise of China, and the environmental and energy supply situation.
