Introduction to Magnetohydrodynamics 2nd Edition

$129.00 $104.30

Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) plays a crucial role in astrophysics, planetary magnetism, engineering and controlled nuclear fusion. This comprehensive textbook emphasizes physical ideas, rather than mathematical detail, making it accessible to a broad audience. Starting from elementary chapters on fluid mechanics and electromagnetism, it takes the reader all the way through to the latest ideas in more advanced topics, including planetary dynamos, stellar magnetism, fusion plasmas and engineering applications. With the new edition, readers will benefit from additional material on MHD instabilities, planetary dynamos and applications in astrophysics, as well as a whole new chapter on fusion plasma MHD. The development of the material from first principles and its pedagogical style makes this an ideal companion for both undergraduate students and postgraduate students in physics, applied mathematics and engineering. Elementary knowledge of vector calculus is the only prerequisite.

Offering an up-to-date overview of the field of aerodynamics, this edition covers many of the key concepts and topics, such as linearized supersonic flow and oblique shock and expansion waves. The 6th edition of Fundamentals of Aerodynamics is meant to be read. The writing style is intentionally conversational in order to make the book easier to read. The book is designed to talk to the reader; in part to be a self-teaching instrument. Learning objectives have been added to each chapter to reflect what is believed to be the most important items to learn from that particular chapter. The 6th edition emphasizes the rich theoretical and physical background of aerodynamics, and marbles in many historical notes to provide a background as to where the aerodynamic technology comes from. Also new with this edition, are Integrated Work Challenges that pertain to the chapter as a whole, and give the reader the opportunity to integrate the material in that chapter in order to solve a “bigger picture”. Now available with the sixth edition of Fundamentals of Aerodynamics, Connect. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective. Within Connect, SmartBook is available with the 6th edition as well. SmartBook is the first and only adaptive eBook for the Higher Education market. SmartBook facilitates the reading process by using practice questions to identify what content a student knows and doesn’t know. As a student reads the text, the material continuously adapts to ensure that he or she is focused on the content most crucial to closing specific knowledge gaps

Automotive Product Development: A Systems Engineering Implementation

This book is about how to develop future automotive products by applying the latest methodologies based on a systems engineering approach and by taking into account many issues facing the auto industry such as meeting government safety, emissions and fuel economy regulations, incorporating advances in new technology applications in structural materials, power trains, vehicle lighting systems, displays and telematics, and satisfying the very demanding customer. It is financially disastrous for any automotive company to create a vehicle that very few people want. To design an automotive product that will be successful in the marketplace requires carefully orchestrated teamwork of experts from many disciplines, substantial amount of resources, and application of proven techniques at the right time during the product development process. Automotive Product Development: A Systems Engineering Implementation is intended for company management personnel and graduate students in engineering, business management and other disciplines associated with the development of automotive and other complex products.

Handbook of Machining with Grinding Wheels 2nd Edition

Grinding is a crucial technology that employs specific abrasive processes for the fabrication of advanced products and surfaces. Handbook of Machining with Grinding Wheels, Second Edition highlights important industry developments that can lead to improved part quality, higher productivity, and lower costs. Divided into two parts, the book begins with an explanation of grinding behavior and ends with a focus on new and emerging industrial applications. While the first edition focused on the basics of abrasive machining technology and presented a unified approach to machining with grinding wheels, the second edition ties in the continued need for traditional processes in conjunction with the latest applications. This book highlights new research topics that include: nanotechnology, alternative energy, and additive manufacturing, compares related approaches, and provides numerous references throughout the book. New in the Second Edition: * Contains the latest information on abrasives, bonds, and dressing * Updates classic stability lobes for grinding * Introduces a new method for tracking dynamic instability in centerless grinding * Provides a section in the chapter on ultrasonic-assisted grinding, which contains recent work on modelling of the process * Adds material on fluid cooling * Presents experimental results for in-process feedback to the grinding process * Includes new examples on grinding machine technology (particularly for dressing) A single source reference covering every aspect of the grinding process, Handbook of Machining with Grinding Wheels functions as a definitive guide to grinding technology for both practicing engineers and students studying graduate-level courses (such as abrasive machining; grinding R&D; metal removal processes; machining of brittle materials; and principles of cutting).
