The extensive and increasing use of pneumatic springs in automotive applications has made it appropriate that this manual be prepared to assist the engineer and the designer in understanding the basic principles and uses of pneumatic springs. This manual provides descriptions of the principles involved in pneumatic spring function along with details of the various configurations of pneumatic spring devices and the unique characteristics of each. Pneumatic spring types have been defined correlating with SAE J511 in the SAE (Oct. 1970) handbook regarding pneumatic spring terminology. Background information tracing the evolution of pneumatic springs has been included, as well as some specific examples of design calculations to serve as a guideline for the designer.

Many parts managers underestimate the business management expertise, combined with parts knowledge, that is required to efficiently operate a parts department. Author Gary Naples brings twenty years of parts management experience to By the Numbers: Principles of Automotive Parts Management. This book presents basic parts management principles, along with business and personnel management techniques, in an easy-to-understand format. Each chapter begins with an "illustrative case" which describes a typical situation (pertinent to the chapter's theme) that could occur in "real-world" parts departments.

In September 1893, little could 23-year-old mechanic J. Frank Duryea dream of the changes that would be brought about by his creation -- a frail gasoline buggy that made its debut on the streets of Springfield, Massachusetts. Charles E. and J. Frank Duryea, two brothers from rural Illinois, were the founders of the American automobile industry. The Duryea Motor Wagon company was the first company organized in the United States for the manufacture of automobiles. The attention-getting, older brother Charles demanded - and to date has received - the principal credit for these pioneering accomplishments. A bitter family feud between the brothers, which was even carried on by their families after their deaths, further muddied the question about the individual brothers' contributions. However, in Carriages Without Horses: J. Frank Duryea and the Birth of the American Automobile Industry, historian and author Richard P. Scharchburg proves that the quiet, self-effacing younger brother J.

History of the Electric Automobile covers the evolution from the first electric vehicles of the 1880s to the advances of today. Beginning with early electric vehicle development in England, France, and the United States, this book provides an in-depth look at the so-called "golden age of electric vehicles" (1895-1905), demonstrating the technological improvements and business risks of this era. This history also explores the "dead period" of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, and the subsequent re-birth of interest in electric vehicles in the early 1960s. Events which have impacted the development of electric cars since then -- most notably the Electric Vehicle Act of 1976 -- are also examined. The book also features an appendix section containing such information as a name table of American electric cars, the Electric Vehicle Act of 1976, "nostalgia", and more. A glossary and index are also included.

This manual is the latest edition in the group of spring manuals currently under the review of the SAE Spring Committee. The preceding SAE manuals on coned disk springs were published in 1950 (First edition), and 1955 (Second Edition). Developments during the past 30 years necessitated a complete revision. In addition to updating the treatment of coned Disk springs, material on other spring washers, not directly related to the coned Disk Spring, has been added. In accordance with current sAE practice, customary units have been replaced by metric SI units throughout this manual; for a conversion table see the Appendix.

It's no secret that lost races and crashes are caused by what is usually referred to as mechanical failure. But author Carroll Smith rightly contends that all failures are human in origin. Poor designs, incorrect manufacture and assembly, unreasonable demands, and negligent maintenance all lead to the dreaded "mechanical failure." Engineer To Win details racing materials technology and many other related subjects. Published by Motorbooks International. Distributed by SAE.

Book
This manual is written as a guide for the designer of leaf spring installations. It contains information which will make it possible to calculate the space required for a leaf spring, to provide suitable attachments, and to determine the elastic and geometric properties of the assembly. The detail design of the spring itself also is described, but it was not the intention of the Committee to lay down fixed rules for this. The choice of leaf lengths, leaf thicknesses, and leaf curvatures depends upon the type of installation and upon the kind of service. Only an experienced spring engineer can make the best choice of these factors. It is therefore recommended that the designer of a leaf spring installation consult a spring maker before the design is finalized.
