Reliability and Maintainability Guideline for Manufacturing Machinery and Equipment

1999-09-15
This guideline is intended to provide a description of reliability and maintainability fundamentals for manufacturing machinery and equipment user and supplier personnel at all operating levels. It embraces the concept of up-front engineering and continuous improvement in the design process for machinery and equipment. The revision includes information to help implement and clarify the activities necessary to build and employ more reliable machinery and equipment. The guideline consolidates reliability and maintainability terminology, methodology and procurement language generally accepted by suppliers and users of equipment employed for the manufacture of discrete components. This will help integrate reliability and maintainability concepts when equipment is designed, and contribute to the reduction of maintenance, warranty, and life cycle costs while increasing equipment availability.

Autonomous Technologies: Applications That Matter

2014-09-03
Over the years, the DARPA Challenges in the United States have galvanized interest in autonomous cars, making them a real possibility in the mind of the public, but autonomous and unmanned vehicles have been increasingly employed in many roles on land, in the water, and in the air. Military applications have received a great deal of attention, with weaponized unmanned aircraft (drones) being the most prominent. However, unmanned vehicles with varying degrees of autonomy already have many civilian applications. Some of these are quite familiar (such as the Roomba autonomous vacuum cleaner), while others remain largely out of the public eye (such as autonomous farm equipment). Additional applications and more capable vehicles are rapidly coming to the markets in the years ahead. This book examines a number of economically important areas in which unmanned and autonomous vehicles, also understood here as autonomous technologies, are already used or soon will be.

The Electric and Hybrid Electric Car

2001-11-01
This book examines trends in electric car development from a global perspective, with many examples drawing from the author's own experiences in the American and European automotive industries. Beginning with the scientific discoveries that made electric vehicle technology possible at the outset of the 20th century, author Michael H. Westbrook provides a thorough discussion of the technology's early history. Though initially overtaken by the unstoppable rise of the internal combustion engine, interest in electric vehicles began to reappear in the 1960s due to their low-emissions potential. But it was not until the passage of a California law in 1990 mandating the sale of zero-emissions vehicles (ZEVs) that major automakers began serious development of the technology.

Concepts in Turbocharging for Improved Efficiency and Emissions Reduction

2014-09-22
Legislative requirements to reduce CO2 emissions by 2020 have resulted in significant efforts by car manufacturers to explore various methods of pollution abatement. One of the most effective ways found so far is by shortening the cylinder stroke and downsizing the engine. This new engine then needs to be boosted, or turbocharged, to create the full and original load torque. Turbocharging has been and will continue to be a key component to the new technologies that will make a positive difference in the next-generation engines of years to come. Concepts in Turbocharging for Improved Efficiency and Emissions Reduction explores the many ways that turbocharging will deliver concrete results in meeting the new realities of sustainable, green transportation.
