Relational Analysis, Guidelines for Estimating the High- and Low-Temperature Properties of Metals

2011-11-01
Relational analysis, defined as quantitative analysis of the relationships of high- and low-temperature properties in relation to their room-temperature values, provides a useful technique for estimating the properties of similar metals and alloys for which limited or no data are available. This book demonstrates how to use relational analysis methodology to extrapolate and estimate properties of metallic alloys at high temperatures from lower temperature data, and for estimating the properties of alloys for which scant property data exists. Data tables and graphs are presented for a wide range of aluminum alloys. Also shown, is how to apply relational analysis to other alloy systems including steels, magnesium alloys, and titanium alloys.

Tyre Recycling

2004-01-01
This is an expert overview on the topic of tire recycling. It summarizes current practices and the factors that have contributed to their growth and efficacy as viable, economically and environmentally sound methods of dealing with post-consumer tires. There are around 1 billion tires produced each year across the globe. It is estimated that for every tire sold another joins the waste stream. This publication explores innovative alternatives available to simply disposing of tires. In fact, waste tire products have many desirable properties in key application areas from thermoplastic elastomers to road surfaces. The primary area of study of this report is the EU, but reports from the US have also been cited. Statistics are incorporated from the EU markets, which illustrate changes in the industry since the inception of the European Tire Recycling Association a decade ago.

Solving Engineering Problems in Dynamics

2014-01-01
Solving Engineering Problems in Dynamics helps practicing engineers successfully analyze real mechanical systems by presenting comprehensive methods for analyzing the motion of engineering systems and their components. This analysis covers three basic phases: 1) composing the differential equation of motion; 2) solving the differential equation of motion; and 3) analyzing the solution. Although a formal engineering education provides the fundamental skills for completing these phases, many engineers nonetheless would benefit by gaining further insight in using these fundamentals to solve real-life engineering problems. This book thus describes in step-by-step order the methods related to each of these phases.

Sensor and Data Fusion: A Tool for Information Assessment and Decision Making, 2nd Ed.

2012-01-01
The information in the second edition of this volume has been substantially expanded and updated to incorporate recent approaches to sensor and data fusion, as well as additional application examples. A new chapter about data fusion issues associated with multiple-radar tracking systems has also been added. This chapter includes topics such as sensor registration requirements, Kalman filtering, and a discussion of interacting multiple models. As in the first edition, the book discusses the benefits of sensor fusion that accrue when sensors that operate with different phenomenologies or surveil separate volumes of space are used to gather signatures and data about objects or events in their field of view.
