The evolution of the automotive transmission has changed rapidly in the last decade, partly due to the advantages of highly sophisticated electronic controls. This evolution has resulted in modern automatic transmissions that offer more control, stability, and convenience to the driver. Electronic Transmission Controls contains 68 technical papers from SAE and other international organizations written since 1995 on this rapidly growing area of automotive electronics. This book breaks down the topic into two sections. The section on Stepped Transmissions covers recent developments in regular and 4-wheel drive transmissions from major auto manufacturers including DaimlerChrysler, General Motors, Toyota, Honda, and Ford. Technology covered in this section includes: smooth shift control; automatic transmission efficiency; mechatronic systems; fuel saving technologies; shift control using information from vehicle navigation systems; and fuzzy logic control.

Donn Paul Werling
Henry Ford was one of the most misunderstood pioneers of the 20th century. Henry Ford: A Hearthside Perspective reveals a different side of the famous man. Werling, director of the Henry Ford Estate, University of Michigan-Dearborn, gained personal insight into Ford by researching the homesites, hearthsides, and communities where Ford had a strong influence. Through captivating anecdotes, this book offers a behind-the-scenes perspective on Ford and his business, political, and personal activities. Werling concludes that despite his shortcomings, Ford positively affected the lives of many with his contributions to the advancement of technology, his contributions to society through restoration, and his donations (over one-third of Ford's income was donated to philanthropic causes).

The sole published expose of one of racing's most famous secret activities. Originally published in 1972, Chevrolet-Racing? reveals the inside story of Chevrolet's early surreptitious involvement in racing, from 1957-1970. This re-issue of the collector's classic tells the fascinating story of how, from 1957 to 1970, Chevrolet probably acquired more successes and more technical knowledge of high performance than any other company in the world. Ironically, they never built a complete, running, race-ready vehicle; nor were ever officially represented at a race, and they never claimed credit for any Chevy products in racing wins, or promoted them in advertising for all that time. How did they accomplish what they did? This book reveals the untold story.

This book chronicles a 35-year success story - the technology that was developed and the progress that was made to achieve the goal of reducing air pollution from automobiles. "Air pollution from automobiles as of the year 2000 will have been lowered to levels less than 5% of those for pre-control era vehicles," writes author J. Robert Mondt, who spent over 30 years working on the development of emission control systems for automobiles. Mondt covers both the technological and political aspects of this effort, from the early environmental concerns in California to the Clean Air Acts of the 1960s to the introduction of catalytic converters in 1975. He also covers the revised Clean Air Acts of the 1960s to the introduction of catalytic converters in 1975.

This book presents a practical "how to" approach to understanding and solving the problems of corrosion of structural materials. Although it is written mainly for those having a limited technical background in corrosion, it also provides more experienced engineers with a useful overview of the principles of corrosion and can be used as a general guide for developing a corrosion-control program. This electronic publication includes identification of the various forms of corrosion, critical factors leading to a specific type of corrosion, necessary preventive steps to eliminate or reduce corrosion damage, protective-coating selection, corrosion characteristics of common structural materials, corrosion-testing programs, and failure-analysis procedures.

This paper is divided into two parts: part 1 - systems engineering fundamentals and part 2 - engine cooling design from a systems engineering perspective. In part 1, we explain how the task of designing a complex system can be made easier by the application of systems engineering principles. (This part is self contained and may be of general interest to those who have no special interest in engine cooling). Systems engineering provides three key benefits: 1. It facilitates communication; requirements define the problem, they allow team members to see their own work in context, key information is standardized and made easier to visualize and verify, an "audit trail" is maintained ensuring that important information is documented, and human memory is no longer relied on for important decisions; 2.

Riding on Air covers the history of air suspension, from the earliest patents in the mid-19th century to more current developments. Beginning on buses, air suspension expanded into passenger rail vehicles, only to be followed by a crashing failure on passenger cars. But after several precarious years, air suspension began to win almost universal acceptance on trucks and trailers, and then in mass transportation, eventually making a successful return to passenger cars.

Multiplexing - the simultaneous transmission of more than one signal over a single wire - was originally used to eliminate the need for bulky wiring harnesses. Today, multiplexing and networking are being used in many automobiles to monitor performance and rapidly pass data in real time among the car's various subsystems. Multiplexing and Networking contains 70 landmark papers on multiplexing, networking considerations, and protocols. These papers address the many concerns associated with designing and choosing an electronic network including: media bandwith, electromagnetic (EMC) compatability, fault tolerance, serviceability, environmental requirements, network architecture, and cost.

This guideline is intended to provide a description of reliability and maintainability fundamentals for manufacturing machinery and equipment user and supplier personnel at all operating levels. It embraces the concept of up-front engineering and continuous improvement in the design process for machinery and equipment. The revision includes information to help implement and clarify the activities necessary to build and employ more reliable machinery and equipment. The guideline consolidates reliability and maintainability terminology, methodology and procurement language generally accepted by suppliers and users of equipment employed for the manufacture of discrete components. This will help integrate reliability and maintainability concepts when equipment is designed, and contribute to the reduction of maintenance, warranty, and life cycle costs while increasing equipment availability.

This book is written for an introductory course in space technology. It is intended for senior or graduate level aerospace engineering students and professional engineers seeking a thorough understanding of the aerospace aspects of space systems. As such it focuses on the primary physics and engineering fundamentals necessary to understand and design space based systems. The book does not include the basics of spacecraft electronics, because this is covered in many systems and electronics books and is typically covered in follow-up courses. Derived from the author's thirty years of experience in the aerospace industry and several years of university teaching experience, and with more than 130 illustrations, it covers advanced subjects and problems indicated by asterisks(*), allowing the reader and the instructor to omit topics without losing continuity.
