An ‘Engineering Research Series’ title.
One of the remarkable achievements of modern manufacturing techniques is the ability to achieve nano-metre surface finishes. Ultraprecision machining based on single-point diamond turning (SPDT) is a very important
technique in the manufacture of high-precision components where surface finish is critical. Complex optical surfaces, for example, can be produced without the need for post-machining polishing.
This book focuses on the aspect of modelling nano-surface generation in ultra precision SPDT. Potential industrial applications in the prediction of surface quality, the process optimization, and precision mould manufacturing are also studies. The essential differences between single-point diamond turning and conventional machining are described.
The history and technology of single-point diamond turning are presented and single chapters emphasize the related metrology and cutting mechanics. Important aspects of surface generation are also discussed. Features of the text are the sound approach, systematic
mathematical modelling, and computer-aided simulation of surface generation in the development of surfaces exhibiting nano-surface qualities.
TOPICS COVERED INCLUDE:
Fundamentals of ultra-precision diamond turning technology
Cutting mechanics and analysis of microcutting force variation
Mechanisms of surface generation
Characterization and modelling of nano-surface generation
Computer-aided simulation of nano-surface generation
Diamond turning of aspheric optics.
Based upon the extensive experience of the authors Surface Generation in Ultra-precision Diamond Turning: Modelling and Practices will be of interest to engineers, scientists, and postgraduate students.

|Going with the Flow: Small Scale Water Power
Lowest new price: $169.07
Lowest used price: $124.17
Author: Dan Curtis
Takes you through the whole process of installing an electricity generating micro-hydro system, from site assessment to commissioning and installation. Starting off with a short history of waterpower it moves on to describe the techniques and tools required to assess a site for its electricity generating potential. It gives a full run down of the different civil and electrical engineering components required to make electricity. This includes water extraction (intakes, settling tanks and penstocks), generation (drive systems, generators and load controllers) and transmission (cabling, transformers). The book then goes on to talk about the legal, financial and environmental aspects and offers several case studies of existing systems. Includes a glossary and conversion tables.

List price: $24.95
Author: Raymond Parnes
This book provides a systematic, modern introduction to solid mechanics that is carefully motivated by realistic Engineering applications. Based on 25 years of teaching experience, Raymond Parnes uses a wealth of examples and a rich set of problems to build the reader's understanding of the scientific principles, without requiring 'higher mathematics'.
Highlights of the book include
- The use of modern SI units throughout
- A thorough presentation of the subject stressing basic unifying concepts
- Comprehensive coverage, including topics such as the behaviour of materials on a phenomenological level
- Over 600 problems, many of which are designed for solving with MATLAB, MAPLE or MATHEMATICA.
Solid Mechanics in Engineering is designed for 2-semester courses in Solid Mechanics or Strength of Materials taken by students in Mechanical, Civil or Aeronautical Engineering and Materials Science and may also be used for a first-year graduate program.
|Commercial Electrical Wiring
Lowest new price: $21.40
Lowest used price: $11.39
List price: $36.50
Author: John E. Traister
Most electricians want to move up through the ranks of the profession. Many of them dream of commercial electrical work were the jobs are long and well-paying. This books provides the knowledge to help get there.
Commercial electrical work is also more complex and deals with plans, diagrams, and schematics that may be unfamiliar to the residential electrician.
This book explains, in simple terms, what you need to know to make the move from residential to commercial electrical wiring.
