Practical Balancing of Rotating Machinery

Author(s): Derek Norfield | Publisher: Elsevier | Date: 2006 | Format: PDF | Pages: 218 | ISBN10: 1856174654    

Rotating machinery (eg pumps, motors, compressors) is normally manufactured to precise measurements but there comes a point when the costs of manufacture mean that further precision is not cost-effective and thus any slight imbalance inherent in the machine will need to be attended to after manufacture. When such machinery is in operation, often at very high speeds of thousands of revs per minute, any imbalance will set up vibration and often noise. In addition, such imbalance will cause extra wear and loss of efficiency in the machine. The answer is to balance the affected parts of the machine so that it operates smoothly and efficiently.

This book is a practical account of such balancing techniques e.g how to balance a rotor, how to set up and verify performance of a balancing machine, and procedures for on-site balancing. In addition, other common causes of vibration will be covered e.g. misalignment, bad bearings and looseness.

Handbook of Terahertz Technology for Imaging, Sensing and Communications

Author(s): Daryoosh Saeedkia | Publisher: WP | Date: 2013 | Format: PDF | Pages: 678 | ISBN10: 0857092359    

The recent development of easy-to-use sources and detectors of terahertz radiation has enabled growth in applications of terahertz (Thz) imaging and sensing. Terahertz radiation does not damage tissues and DNA, unlike X-rays, so it is a good candidate for medical imaging. Many materials of interest have unique spectral "fingerprints" in the Thz range and this makes terahertz technology attractive for scientific research, sensing and imaging. There are many possible uses of Thz sensing and imaging in manufacturing, quality control, and process monitoring. The editor and contributors review the fundamentals of Thz technology, explain the recent progress and techniques in this technology and finally explore the applications of terahertz technology.

Intuitive Analog Circuit Design

Author(s): Marc Thompson | Publisher: Newnes | Date: 2006 | Format: PDF | Pages: 496 | ISBN10: 0750677864    

This book reflects Dr. Thompson's twenty years of experience designing and teaching analog circuit design, and is an outgrowth of course notes from his graduate-level analog circuit design course taught at Worcester Polytechnic Institute entitled "Analog Circuits and Intuition." In this class, he describes intuitive and "back of the envelope" techniques for designing and analyzing analog circuits, including transistor amplifiers (CMOS and bipolar), transistor switching, thermal circuit design, magnetic circuit design, control systems, and the like. The application of some simple rules-of-thumb and design techniques is the first step in developing an intuitive understanding of the behavior of complex electrical systems. This book outlines some ways of thinking about analog circuits and systems that hopefully develops such "circuit intuition" and a "feel" for what a good, working analog circuit design should be.

*Introduces analog circuit design with a minimum of mathematics.
*Gives readers an intuitive "feel" for analog circuit operation and rules-of-thumb for their design.
*Uses numerous analogies from digital design to help readers whose main background is in digital make the transition to analog design.

Selection and Use of Engineering Materials, 3rd Edition

Author(s): F A A Crane | Publisher: Butterworth-Heinemann | Date: 1997 | Format: PDF | Pages: 352 | ISBN10: 0750632771

The aim of this book is to provide an understanding of the basic principles of materials selection as practised in engineering manufacture and design with an overview of established materials usage. Emphasis is placed on identifying service requirements and how materials relate to those requirements, rather than listing materials and describing applications.

This edition has been revised throughout and now includes coverage of the use of new materials in engineering, materials for bearings and tribological usage, and the use of materials in civil engineering structures. It has also been expanded to include
more case studies and worked examples in order to provide tangible and interactive contact with the content matter. The book also contains a detailed consideration of the weldability of steels, the welding of plastics and adhesion. programmes. An example of this development is the inclusion of a chapter detailing the use of materials in automobile structures a field in which the traditional use of steel is being displaced as the application of reinforced polymers becomes more widespread. The book also reflects the growing use of computerized databases and materials selection programmes.

Practical Electric Motor Handbook

Author(s): Irving Gottlieb | Publisher: Newnes | Date: 1997 | Format: PDF | Pages: 220 | ISBN10: 0750636386

Experienced product designers are increasingly expected to be adept at incorporating a range of components into their designs. Students and experimenters too need to look beyond basic circuits and devices to achieve adequate design solutions. For those experienced in engineering design, this is the guide to electric motors.

This book will allow engineers and designers to marry the technologies they know about with motor technology, and hence to incorporate motors into their products. Of the many good books on motors, such as Electric Motors and Drives by Hughes, none offer the engineering professional a tailored guide to motors taking into account their expertise. This book fills that gap.

Irving Gottlieb is a leading author of many books for practising engineers, technicians and students of electronic and electrical engineering.

* Practical approach with minimum theory
* Covers a core area ignored by many electronics texts
* Shows how to incorporate motors into electronic products

Motor Control: Theories, Experiments, and Applications

Author(s): Frederic Danion PhD | Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA | Date: 2010 | Format: PDF | Pages: 536 | ISBN10: 0195395271

Motor control has established itself as an area of scientific research characterized by a multi-disciplinary approach. Scientists working in the area of control of voluntary movements come from different backgrounds including but not limited to physiology, physics, psychology, mathematics, neurology, physical therapy, computer science, robotics, and engineering. One of the factors slowing progress in the area has been the lack of communication among researchers representing all these disciplines. A major objective of the current book is to overcome this deficiency and to promote cooperation and mutual understanding among researchers addressing different aspects of the complex phenomenon of motor coordination. The book offers a collection of chapters written by the most prominent researchers in the field. Despite the variety of approaches and methods, all the chapters are united by a common goal: To understand how the central nervous system controls and coordinates natural voluntary movements. This book will be appreciated as a major reference by researchers working in all the subfields that form motor control. It can also be used as a supplementary reading book for graduate courses in such fields as kinesiology, physiology, biomechanics, psychology, robotics, and movement disorders.
