EBook Description: Nature often comes up with simpler solutions to engineering problems than do human engineers. Does that mean that nature's technology is superior? Arguing that nature can be improved upon, Vogel's comparison of biological and human-made technologies shows how and why.

Materials Selection in Mechanical Design

Describes procedures for materials selection in mechanical design, allowing the most suitable materials for a given application to be identified from the full range of materials and section shapes available.

New materials enable advances in engineering design. This book describes a procedure for material selection in mechanical design, allowing the most suitable materials for a given application to be identified from the full range of materials and section shapes available. A novel approach is adopted not found anywhere else.

Materials are introduced through their properties; materials selection charts (a new development) capture the important features of all materials, allowing rapid retrieval of information and application of selection techniques. Merit indices, combined with charts, allow optimisation of the materials selection process. Sources of material property data are reviewed and approaches to their use are given. Material processing and its influence on the design are discussed. The book closes with chapters on aesthetics and industrial design. Case studies are developed as a method of illustrating the procedure and as a way of developing the ideas further.

Materials Selection in Mechanical Design, Second Edition

The leading text for materials selection in engineering

Review
"Well presented and clear with lots of other references."

"I found it one of the best books in the area."

Combined Quantum Mechanical and Molecular Mechanical Methods

Combined quantum mechanical and molecular mechanical methods is one of the most promising approaches for quantum mechanical calculations of chemical processes in solution and in enzymes. This book provides an in-depth survey of the methods and applications of these combined techniques in chemistry and biochemistry.
Description Combined quantum mechanical and molecular mechanical methods is one of the most promising approaches for quantum mechanical calculations of chemical processes in solution and in enzymes. This book provides an in-depth survey of the methods and applications of these combined techniques in chemistry and biochemistry.
The November 1997 symposium drew scientists from several industrialized countries to Las Vegas to describe how they can tremendously simplify the study of chemical structures and reactions in solution and in enzymes by subjecting the smaller solute part of the system to quantum mechanics and the remainder solvent to classical force field. They discuss such aspects as treating link atoms in hybrid methods, dual-level methods for electronic structure calculations of potential energy functions that use quantum mechanics as the lower level, generalized molecular mechanics including quantum electronic structure variations of polar solvents, applying linear- scaling electronic structure methods to the study of the polarization of proteins and DNA in solutions, and exciting green fluorescent protein. The text is reproduced from typescripts, some of which are double-spaced.

Mechanical Engineering Systems

Content matched to requirements of IIE and other BSc Engineering and Technology courses Practical text featuring worked examples, case studies, assignments and knowledge-check questions throughout.Maths in Action panels introduce key mathematical methods in their engineering contextsBreadth of coverage to enable tutors to tailor the book's use to suite their particular syllabus. A core text for first year modules in Mechanical Engineering offering student-centred learning based in real-life engineering practice.

Mechanical Engineering Systems provides all the essential information an engineering student needs in preparation for real-life engineering practice. The authors take a uniquely student-centred approach to the subject, with easily accessible material introduced through case studies, assignments and knowledge-check questions.

This book is carefully designed to be used on a wide range of introductory courses at first degree and HND level. The interactive style of the book brings the subjects to life with activities and case studies rather than devoting hundreds of pages to theory. Key numerical and statistical techniques are introduced through Maths in Action panels located within the main text. The content has been carefully matched to a variety of first year degree modules from IEng and other BSc Engineering and Technology courses. Lecturers will find the breadth of material covered gears the book towards a flexible style of use, which can be tailored to their syllabus.

Mechanical Trading Systems: Pairing Trader Psychology with Technical Analysis

A wide variety of flexible trading systems that combine sophisticated technical analysis with trading psychology theory
Mechanical Trading Systems examines the development process for choosing and using mechanical trading systems in conjunction with trader psychology. This book discusses the advantages and disadvantages of mechanical trading systems; the dangers in system development and how to avoid them; the optimal methods for back-testing trading systems; position sizing and other risk quantification tools; and methods of improving rates of return on investments without significantly increasing risk. Most importantly, through a detailed examination of various types of unsuccessful trader personality traits (e.g., fearfulness, greed, and impatience), the book recommends different types of trading systems for a diverse array of trader types.

Richard L. Weissman (Port Richey, FL) has seventeen years' experience as a trader and developer of trading systems. He currently provides independent consultation an d training services to traders and risk management professionals in the areas of technical analysis, risk management, and trader psychology.

Mechanical Vibrations

This analysis of dynamic stresses on rotational machines such as helicopters and piston engines explains the main dynamic phenomena and how they can be observed in reality as well as information on the modeling methods required to understand the dynamic phenomena and develop solutions capable of eliminating the most serious effects.
