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.

This editorial review of J784a is based upon decades of experience in the practical application of x-ray diffraction residual stress measurement methods in thousands of individual applications. J784 is a classic document. It serves as the only recognized standard for residual stress measurement available. The purpose of this revision is not to incorporate all of the research in the fields of x-ray and neutron diffraction but to focus on the practical applications of x-ray diffraction techniques useful to members of the automotive engineering related industries.

Riding on Air covers the history of air suspension, from the earliest patents in the mid-19th century to more current developments. Beginning on buses, air suspension expanded into passenger rail vehicles, only to be followed by a crashing failure on passenger cars. But after several precarious years, air suspension began to win almost universal acceptance on trucks and trailers, and then in mass transportation, eventually making a successful return to passenger cars.

This book provides comprehensive coverage of the design, installation and use of the shock absorber. Among the subjects highlighted are fluid dynamics, valve characteristics, damper characteristics, installation and motion ratios, and influence on vehicle ride and handling. Numerous example installations are described and discussed. Testing machines, as well as methods of laboratory testing, are also described in detail. The widely varying characteristics of variable dampers, and the relationship to their design features, are explained.

Scrap Tires: Disposal and Reuse details the historical, technological, and economic issues related to the scrap tire industry, and the manner in which the scrap tire problem is addressed. The ultimate solution will be hastened by progress in the establishment of profitable commercial enterprises and markets to utilize scrap tires for their inherent intrinsic value. Scrap Tires provides advice on how scrap tires can be used for fuels, sealants, rubber mats, playground surfaces, equestrian arenas, wastewater treatment plant composts, golf courses, and more. Written from a business perspective, Scrap Tires focuses on the economics of tire recycling, providing valuable advice to individuals or companies. In addition to an exploration of markets, the book describes how tires are chopped, the machinery used in chopping tires, the grinding process, and the engineering properties of tire chips.

This book provides a comprehensive overview to the underlying theory and application of what are often perceived to be difficult topics, such as performance stability, control and response of aircraft. Initially it introduces the reader to the fundamental concepts underlying performance and stability, including lift characteristics and estimation of drag, before moving on to a more detailed analysis of performance in both level and climbing flight. Pitching motion is then described followed by a detailed discussion of all aspects of both lateral and longitudinal stability and response. It finishes with an examination of inertial cross-coupling and automatic control and stabilization. The reader is helped to think in three dimensions throughout the book by the use of illustrative examples. The progression from one degree of freedom to six degrees of freedom is gradually introduced.

The extensive and increasing use of pneumatic springs in automotive applications has made it appropriate that this manual be prepared to assist the engineer and the designer in understanding the basic principles and uses of pneumatic springs. This manual provides descriptions of the principles involved in pneumatic spring function along with details of the various configurations of pneumatic spring devices and the unique characteristics of each. Pneumatic spring types have been defined correlating with SAE J511 in the SAE (Oct. 1970) handbook regarding pneumatic spring terminology. Background information tracing the evolution of pneumatic springs has been included, as well as some specific examples of design calculations to serve as a guideline for the designer.

This manual is the latest edition in the group of spring manuals currently under the review of the SAE Spring Committee. The preceding SAE manuals on coned disk springs were published in 1950 (First edition), and 1955 (Second Edition). Developments during the past 30 years necessitated a complete revision. In addition to updating the treatment of coned Disk springs, material on other spring washers, not directly related to the coned Disk Spring, has been added. In accordance with current sAE practice, customary units have been replaced by metric SI units throughout this manual; for a conversion table see the Appendix.

This manual is written as a guide for the designer of leaf spring installations. It contains information which will make it possible to calculate the space required for a leaf spring, to provide suitable attachments, and to determine the elastic and geometric properties of the assembly. The detail design of the spring itself also is described, but it was not the intention of the Committee to lay down fixed rules for this. The choice of leaf lengths, leaf thicknesses, and leaf curvatures depends upon the type of installation and upon the kind of service. Only an experienced spring engineer can make the best choice of these factors. It is therefore recommended that the designer of a leaf spring installation consult a spring maker before the design is finalized.
