Title : Technical Drawing with Engineering Graphics (15th Edition)
Author : Frederick E Giesecke
ISBN/ISSN : 978-0135090497
Technical Drawing and Engineering Graphics, Fourteenth Edition, provides a clear, comprehensive introduction and detailed, easy-to-use reference to creating 2D documentation drawings and engineering graphics by hand or using CAD. It offers excellent technical detail, up-to-date standards, motivating real-world examples, and clearly explained theory and technique in a colorful, highly visual, concisely written format. Designed as an efficient tool for busy, visually oriented learners, this edition expands on well-tested material, bringing its content up-to-date with the latest standards, materials, industries and production processes. Colored models and animations bring the material to life for the student on the book’s companion website. Updated exercises that feature sheet metal and plastic parts are a part of the excellent Giesecke problem set.
Title : My library My History Books on Google Play Diesel Engine Transient Operation: Principles of Operation and Simulation Analysis
Author : Constantine D. Rakopoulos, Evangelos G. Giakoumis
Traditionally, the study of internal combustion engines operation has focused on the steady-state performance. However, the daily driving schedule of automotive and truck engines is inherently related to unsteady conditions. In fact, only a very small portion of a vehicle’s operating pattern is true steady-state, e. g. , when cruising on a motorway. Moreover, the most critical conditions encountered by industrial or marine engines are met during transients too. Unfortunately, the transient operation of turbocharged diesel engines has been associated with slow acceleration rate, hence poor driveability, and overshoot in particulate, gaseous and noise emissions. Despite the relatively large number of published papers, this very important subject has been treated in the past scarcely and only segmentally as regards reference books. Merely two chapters, one in the book Turbocharging the Internal Combustion Engine by N. Watson and M. S. Janota (McMillan Press, 1982) and another one written by D. E. Winterbone in the book The Thermodynamics and Gas Dynamics of Internal Combustion Engines, Vol. II edited by J. H. Horlock and D. E. Winterbone (Clarendon Press, 1986) are dedicated to transient operation. Both books, now out of print, were published a long time ago. Then, it seems reasonable to try to expand on these pioneering works, taking into account the recent technological advances and particularly the global concern about environmental pollution, which has intensified the research on transient (diesel) engine operation, typically through the Transient Cycles certification of new vehicles.
Title : Electrical Craft Principles, Volume 1, 5th edition
Author : J.F. Whitfield
ISBN/ISSN : 978-0-86341-932-4
Item Location : OPEN SHELF
This is the first of a two-volume work covering the electrical principles syllabuses of all the major examining bodies including City & Guilds of London Institute's electrical craft courses. It is also suitable for a wide range of other courses, including the first three years of the BTEC electrical series. Great care has been taken to ensure that the text fully covers the content of the syllabuses concerned, both as published and as interpreted by the examiners in the past. The book is well illustrated with almost 200 line diagrams and photographs. Theories are explained with the help of almost 100 worked examples, an important aid to understanding the practical applications, and there are more than 300 graded exercises for which numerical answers are provided as well as nearly 250 multiple choice questions with solutions. These features make the book ideal as a class text as well as being particularly suitable for private study. A complete list of symbols, abbreviations and units is included, along with eight tables of relevant data and introduction to SI units, this system being used throughout. Each chapter concludes with a summary of the formulas introduced in it. This book will also be useful to practicing technicians wishing to extend their grasp of electrical principles to meet the rapidly expanding requirements of the industry.

Title : Commercial Load Calculation for Small Commercial Buildings, Manual N® 5th Edition Edition
Author : Hank Rutkowski
ISBN/ISSN : 978-1892765383
Item Location : OPEN SHELF
The new fifth edition of Manual N, from the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), details the correct HVAC load calculation procedure for small and midsize commercial buildings. This new edition addresses advances in the commercial construction industry, such as new materials, methods of assembly, and operational requirements. It provides instruction to help contractors and designers satisfy new (and often conflicting) energy, ventilation, and comfort requirements. Manual N is divided into four sections providing both a quick procedure, and a more comprehensive procedure, based on the requirements of your application
