The development of hybrid vehicles, prompted by the pressing requirement for the reduction in the environmental impact of land transport, is probably one of the most significant recent advances in automotive technology. The hybrid vehicle is just coming of age, and the first generation of hybrid cars is now available to the general public. Hybrid buses and trolleybuses have already entered regular service. In this timely book, the authors review recent progress in the development of a range of hybrid vehicles, from small cars to buses and light rail vehicles, and describe the results of field trials and operational experience. Numerous tables, graphs and black-and-white photographs are included while clear references are also featured to aid further investigation.

Composites are being used more and more in the automotive industry, because of their strength, weight, quality and cost advantages. In 1998-1999, the Rover Group, in conjunction with the Warwick Manufacturing Group, devised a Composite Awareness course to further knowledge of composites. This book is an updated and expanded version of the course notes. This book intends to give readers an appreciation of composites, materials properties, manufacturing technologies and the wider implications of using composites in the automotive sector. It will be useful for those already working with composites in automotive applications and for those who are considering using them in the future. Sample contents include: What composites are Polymer chemistry and physics General properties of composites How composites are used in automobiles Manufacturing with thermoset and thermoplastic composites The future of composites Design guidelines for composites

This book is a comprehensive guide to the influence of alloy additions on mechanical properties, physical properties, corrosion and chemical behavior, and processing and manufacturing characteristics. The coverage considers “alloying” to include any addition of an element or compound that interacts with a base metal to influence properties. Information addresses the beneficial effects of major alloy additions, inoculants, dopants, grain refiners, and other elements that have been deliberately added to improve performance, as well the detrimental effects of minor elements or residual (tramp) elements included in charge materials or that result from improper melting or refining techniques. The content is presented in a concise, user-friendly format. Numerous figures and tables are provided.

Mike Westbrook
This book examines trends in electric car development from a global perspective, with many examples drawing from the author's own experiences in the American and European automotive industries. Beginning with the scientific discoveries that made electric vehicle technology possible at the outset of the 20th century, author Michael H. Westbrook provides a thorough discussion of the technology's early history. Though initially overtaken by the unstoppable rise of the internal combustion engine, interest in electric vehicles began to reappear in the 1960s due to their low-emissions potential. But it was not until the passage of a California law in 1990 mandating the sale of zero-emissions vehicles (ZEVs) that major automakers began serious development of the technology.

Fracture Resistance of Aluminum Alloys presents one of the most complete compendiums of notch-tensile, tear, and fracture toughness data ever compiled. Information and data are included for a wide range of aluminum alloys, tempers, and products (sheet, plate, extrusions, forgings, and castings). Typical and minimum plane-stress and plane-strain fracture toughness values are given for many high strength alloys. The effects of temperature are covered extensively, especially for the notch-tensile and tear data. Fracture data for welds as well as the parent alloys and products also are included.

This book tells the remarkable story of these three automotive giants and the impact they had on the American car industry. Everitt was instrumental in forming the extensive body building industry that characterized Detroit prior to World War II. Metzger established the first automotive dealership in Detroit, if not the country, and served as head of sales of Cadillac during its formative years. Flanders, a genius with machines, masterminded the tools of production for the first Model T.

This book is written as an introduction to rotor-bearing dynamics for practicing engineers and students who are involved in rotor dynamics and bearing designs. The goal is to provide a step-by-step approach to the understanding of fundamentals of rotor-bearing dynamics. Therefore, the emphasis is on the basic principles, phenomena, modeling, theory, and interpretations of the results. Introduction to Dynamics of Rotor-bearing Systems includes numerous examples, from a single-degree-of-freedom system to complicated industrial rotating machinery, which serve to illustrate fundamental dynamic behaviors. The concepts in the text are reinforced by parametric studies and numerous illustrative examples and figures.

Otto Lilenthal
Scientists and aviation enthusiasts from around the world will find this one of the most important books ever published. It's the work of the German aviation pioneer and creative genius, Otto Lilienthal, whose observation, analysis, ingenuity and daring laid the foundation for the development of aviation. The "Flying Man" Lilienthal was the first man to launch himself into the air, fly, and land safely. First published in 1891, this new edition is an unabridged copy of the original complete with Lilienthal's own diagrams and formulae, and a preface written in 1911 by A.W. Isenthal, who translated the original into English after Lilienthal's death. After a comprehensive scientific study of how birds fly, Lilienthal recognized the superiority of curved wing surfaces. He then developed a theory of flight and designed and built a series of gliders. From 1891 to 1896 he made over 2,000 glides-bridging the gap between those who dreamed of flying and those who flew.
