Flow-Induced Vibration of Power and Process Plant Components (Hardcover): M. K. Au-Yang Flow-Induced Vibration of Power and Process Plant Components (Hardcover)
M. K. Au-Yang
R2,541 Discovery Miles 25 410 Out of stock

This volume is a valuable, single source of information on the most common flow-induced vibration problems in power and process plant components. Based on the author's own experience that most errors in engineering analysis come from confusions in the units, the author begins with a short chapter on units and dimensions. He then provides step-by-step examples in dual US and SI units, leading to the final objective of design analysis, problem solving, diagnosis and trouble shooting in the following areas: fundamentals of vibration; acoustics and structural dynamics; vibration of structures in quiescent fluids; vortex-induced vibration; turbulence-induced vibration; impact, fatigue and wear caused by flow-induced vibration; acoustically induced vibration; and signal analysis and diagnostic techniques. Emphasis is placed on the physics of the phenomenon and most of the work examples can be solved with pocket calculators.

Energy issues such as pollution, resource depletion, global warming, nuclear power and waste are problems demanding timely solutions. This book provides a critical examination of the resources, market forces, and social impacts of modern energy production. The book addresses the dilemmas that have arisen due to society's crucial dependence on energy, particularly fossil fuels, and explores the available alternative energy producing technologies. The second edition has increased emphasis on those issues at the forefront of the current energy debate: energy sustainability, climate change, and the radical restructuring of the power industry due to deregulation. Assuming no prior technical expertise and avoiding complex mathematical formulation. The second edition, like the first, will be especially useful as a textbook for undergraduate programs in Science, Technology and Society (STS), and as a supplementary text in a variety of courses that touch on energy studies, including environmental and technology policy, environmental, mineral and business law, energy and resource economics.

R14,095 Discovery Miles 140 950 Out of stock

This set of Building 2000 brochures illustrates how architects and other building designers can successfully apply passive solar principles to produce energy-efficient buildings. Building 2000 is a pilot project of the European Commission's R & D programme `Solar Energy Applications to Buildings', encouraging the adoption of solar architectures in large buildings. There was an enthusiastic response from project teams responsible for the design of 32 large buildings with a total construction budget of more than 140 million ECU. During the design phase of these buildings the Commission offered free design support to architects and design team members to improve the building designs. The willingness to collaborate with R & D experts encouraged the Commission's action in this field. The results of the design studies illustrating passive solar architecture in buildings in the European Community are presented in two volumes. Volume I covers Schools, Laboratories and Universities; Sports and Educational Centres. Volume II covers Office Buildings, Public Buildings; Hotels and Holiday Complexes. A summary of the results from the various design support activities is presented in the second part of each volume. These two books reflect the results of the exchange of information between the actual design practitioners and the European R & D community. They are an invaluable source of information for architects and engineers interested in passive solar architecture and modern daylighting approaches. The volumes are available separately or as a set.

Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) enables power to be transferred from a grid or storage unit to a device without the need for cable connections. This can be performed by inductive coupling of magnetic fields as well as by direct radiative transfer via beams of electromagnetic waves, commonly radiowaves, microwaves or lasers. Inductive coupling is the most widely used wireless technology with applications including charging handheld devices, RFID tags, chargers for implantable medical devices, and proposed systems for charging electric vehicles. Applications of radiative power transfer include solar power satellites and wireless powered drone aircraft. This book covers the very latest in theory and technology of both coupling and radiative wireless power transfer. Topics covered include the basic theory of inductive coupling and resonance coupling WPT; multi-hop WPT; circuit theory for wireless couplers; inverter/ rectifier technologies for WPT systems; basic theory of WPT via radio waves; technologies of antenna and phased array for WPT via radio waves; transmitter/rectifier technologies for WPT via radio waves; applications of coupling WPT for electric vehicle charging; applications of long-distance WPT; and biological interactions of electromagnetic fields and waves.
