Finite Element Simulations Using ANSYS
The complexity of modern-day problems in mechanical engineering makes relying on pure theory or pure experiment impractical at best and time-consuming and unwieldy at worst. And for a large class of engineering problems writing computer codes from scratch is seldom found in practice. Use of reputable, trustworthy software can save time, effort, and resources while still providing reliable results. Finite Elements Simulations Using ANSYS focuses on the application of this design software in solving practical engineering problems. The book presents fundamental knowledge of numerical simulation using ANSYS. It covers all disciplines in mechanical engineering: structure, solid mechanics, vibration, heat transfer, and fluid dynamics, with adequate background material to explain the physics behind the computations. The author treats each physical phenomenon independently, enabling readers to single out subjects or related chapters and study them as self-contained units. Because a finite element solution is greatly affected by the quality of the mesh, a separate chapter on mesh generation is included as a simple meshing guide, emphasizing the basics. Each chapter contains a number of pictorially guided problems with appropriate screenshots that provide a step-by-step, easy-to-follow technical demonstration. The book includes end-of-chapter problems, several practical, open-ended case studies, and a number of complete tutorials on using ANSYS to resolve the issues engineers tackle on a regular basis. Instructors can liberally select appropriate chapters to be covered depending on the objectives of the course. The author first explains multiphysics analyses, such as structure-thermal or fluid-thermal analyses, in terms of theory, then derives the equations governing the physical phenomena and presents modeling techniques. Many of the sample problems, questions, and solved examples were used in CAD courses in many universities around the world. They cover structural analysis, solid mechanics and vibration, steady-state and transient heat-transfer analysis, fluid dynamics, multiphysics simulations, and modeling and meshing. Written and organized so that it can easily be used for self-study, this book guides readers through the basic modeling requirements to the correct and physically meaningful numerical result.

Mechanics of Microelectromechanical Systems
This book offers a comprehensive coverage to the mechanics of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), which are analyzed from a mechanical engineer's viewpoint as devices that transform an input form of energy, such as thermal, electrostatic, electromagnetic or optical, into output mechanical motion (in the case of actuation) or that can operate with the reversed functionality (as in sensors) and convert an external stimulus, such as mechanical motion, into (generally) electric energy. The impetus of this proposal stems from the perception that such an approach might contribute to a more solid understanding of the principles governing the mechanics of MEMS, and would hopefully enhance the efficiency of modeling and designing reliable and desirably-optimized microsystems. The work represents an attempt at both extending and deepening the mechanical-based approach to MEMS in the static domain by providing simple, yet reliable tools that are applicable to micromechanism design through current fabrication technologies. Lumped-parameter stiffness and compliance properties of flexible components are derived both analytically (as closed-form solutions) and as simplified (engineering) formulas. Also studied are the principal means of actuation/sensing and their integration into the overall microsystem. Various examples of MEMS are studied in order to better illustrate the presentation of the different modeling principles and algorithms. Through its objective, approach and scope, this book offers a novel and systematic insight into the MEMS domain and complements existing work in the literature addressing part of the material developed herein.

Engine Failure Analysis: Internal Combustion Engine Failures and Their Causes
Engine failures result from a complex set of conditions, effects, and situations. To understand why engines fail and remedy those failures, one must understand how engine components are designed and manufactured, how they function, and how they interact with other engine components. To this end, this book examines how engine components are designed and how they function, along with their physical and technical properties. Translated from a popular German reference work, this English edition sheds light on determining engine failure and remedies. The authors present a selection of engine failures, investigate and evaluate why they failed, and provide guidance on how to prevent such failures. A large range of possible engine failures is presented in a comprehensive, readily understandable manner, free of manufacturer bias. The scope of engines covered includes general-purpose engines found in heavy commercial vehicles, railway locomotives and vehicles, electrical generators, prime movers, and marine engines. Such engines are technical precursors to automotive engines. This book is for all who deal with engine failures: those who work in repair shops, shipyards, engineering consultancies, insurance companies and technical oversight organisations, as well as R&D departments at engine and component manufacturers. Researchers, academics, and students will learn how even the theoretically impossible can-and will-happen.

Obwohl die Gleichstrommaschine yom Umsatz her das Gebiet der drehzahlstellbaren Antriebe heute noch klar dominiert, wachst die Bedeutung der kommutatorlosen Antriebe von Jahr zu Jahr. Mit dieser Entwicklung geht auch eine fortschreitende Verwischung der Grenzen zwischen der Starkstromtechnik und der Schwachstromtechnik im friiheren Sinne einher, stehen doch bei der Planung eines Stromrichterantriebes mindestens drei Fachgebiete Pate: der Elektromaschinenbau, die Stromrichtertechnik bzw.

Information Systems Research: Relevant Theory and Informed Practice comprises the edited proceedings of the WG8.2 conference, Relevant Theory and Informed Practice: Looking Forward from a 20-Year Perspective on IS Research, which was sponsored by IFIP and held in Manchester, England, in July 2004. The conference attracted a record number of high-quality manuscripts, all of which were subjected to a rigorous reviewing process in which four to eight track chairs, associate editors, and reviewers thoughtfully scrutinized papers by the highly regarded as well as the newcomers. No person or idea was considered sacrosanct and no paper made it through this process unscathed. All authors were asked to revise the accepted papers, some more than once; thus, good papers got better. With only 29 percent of the papers accepted, these proceedings are significantly more selective than is typical of many conference proceedings. This volume is organized in 7 sections, with 33 full research papers providing panoramic views and reflections on the Information Systems (IS) discipline followed by papers featuring critical interpretive studies, action research, theoretical perspectives on IS research, and the methods and politics of IS development. Also included are 6 panel descriptions and a new category of bright idea position papers, 11 in all, wherein main points are summarized in a pithy and provocative fashion.
