Engineering drawing, though it had its roots in scientific and technical illustration at the time of the Renaissance and in architectural and naval draughtsmanship in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, was essentially a product of the Industrial Revolution. The numerous drawings reproduced in this book offer a representative selection of the work produced for the transport industries - ships, railway engines, motor-cars, aeroplanes - during the past two hundred years. Many are superb examples of draughtsmanship, and a number are equal in quality to the best drawings of any kind. The illustrations can be looked at in two complementary ways. The drawings may be enjoyed for their visual quality alone, but it is also important to grasp their significance for the design and production processes to which they relate. As all the drawings were originally produced for a specific purpose, their place in the story of engineering needs to be understood. In their text and detailed captions, the authors place each drawing in its context and describe the development of the skills of draughtsmanship as they interacted with the entrepreneurial demands of rapidly developing technology. The book as a whole therefore makes an important contribution to the history of technology, as well as providing outstanding examples of the richness of the visual resources that emanated from the Industrial Revolution. This is an impressive work of scholarship that draws not just on the extensive collections of engineering drawings that exist in Britain (where the Industrial Revolution had its beginnings), but also from American and European sources. Drawings normally unseen and often unknown outside a small circle of specialists are now presented to a wider public.

|Handbook of Adhesion
Lowest new price: $199.00
Lowest used price: $198.95
List price: $395.00
This second edition of the successful Handbook of Adhesion provides concise and authoritative articles covering many aspects of the science and technology associated with adhesion and adhesives. It is intended to fill a gap between the necessarily simplified treatment of the student textbook and the full and thorough treatment of the research monograph and review article. The articles are structured in such a way, with internal cross-referencing and external literature references, that the reader can build up a broader and deeper understanding, as their needs require.
This second edition includes many new articles covering developments which have risen in prominence in the intervening years, such as scanning probe techniques, the surface forces apparatus and the relation between adhesion and fractal surfaces. Advances in understanding polymer - polymer interdiffusion are reflected in articles drawing out the implications for adhesive bonding. In addition, articles derived from the earlier edition have been revised and updated where needed. Throughout the book there is a renewed emphasis on environmental implications of the use of adhesives and sealants.
The scope of the Handbook, which features nearly 250 articles from over 60 authors, includes the background science - physics, chemistry and material science - and engineering, and also aspects of adhesion relevant to the use of adhesives, including topics such as:
* Sealants and mastics
* Paints and coatings
* Printing and composite materials
* Welding and autohesion
* Engineering design
The Handbook of Adhesion is intended for scientists and engineers in both academia and industry, requiring an understanding of the various facets of adhesion.
|Surface Generation in Ultra-precision Diamond Turning: Modelling and Practices (Engineering Research Series (REP))
Lowest new price: $282.12
Lowest used price: $265.20
List price: $355.00
Author: W. B. Lee
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.
