This collection is a resource for studying the history of the evolving technologies that have contributed to snowmobiles becoming cleaner and quieter machines. Papers address design for a snowmobile using the EPA test procedure and standard for off-road vehicles, along with more stringent U.S. National Park Best Available Technology (BAT) standards that are likened to those of the California Air Resourced Board (CARB). Innovative technology solutions include: • Standard application for diesel engine designs • Applications to address and test both engine and track noise • Benefits of the Miller cycle and turbocharging The SAE International Clean Snowmobile Challenge (CSC) program is an engineering design competition. The program provides undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to enhance their engineering design and project management skills by reengineering a snowmobile to reduce emissions and noise.

This collection is a resource for studying the history of the evolving technologies that have contributed to snowmobiles becoming cleaner and quieter machines. Papers address design for a snowmobile using the EPA test procedure and standard for off-road vehicles. Innovative technology solutions include: • Engine Design: improving the two-stroke, gas direct injection (GDI) engine • Applications of new muffler designs and a catalytic converter • Solving flex-fuel design and engine power problems The SAE International Clean Snowmobile Challenge (CSC) program is an engineering design competition. The program provides undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to enhance their engineering design and project management skills by reengineering a snowmobile to reduce emissions and noise. The competition includes internal combustion engine categories that address both gasoline and diesel, as well as the zero emissions category in which range and draw bar performance are measured.

This collection is a resource for studying the history of the evolving technologies that have contributed to snowmobiles becoming cleaner and quieter machines. Papers address design for a snowmobile using E10 gasoline (10% ethanol mixed with pump gasoline). Performance technologies that are presented include: • Engine Design: application of the four-stroke engine • Applications to address both engine and track noise • Exhaust After-treatment to reduce emissions The SAE International Clean Snowmobile Challenge (CSC) program is an engineering design competition. The program provides undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to enhance their engineering design and project management skills by reengineering a snowmobile to reduce emissions and noise. The competition includes internal combustion engine categories that address both gasoline and diesel, as well as the zero emissions category in which range and draw bar performance are measured.

Additive manufacturing (AM) for space exploration has become a growing opportunity as long-range space missions evolve. In partnership with the National Space Grant Foundation and NASA, students from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee participated in the 2014-15 X-Hab Academic Innovation Challenge, with participants tasked with developing new AM solutions that would be recyclable with minimal loss in mechanical properties. The teams investigated materials, characterization, testing, modeling, and tool development, including the ability to employ reusable carbon-fiber tension ties. The tools developed show that it is possible to employ thermoplastic polymer materials fabricated using AM together with reusable and flexible high-performance carbon-fiber-based composite ties. The AM-printed part is completely recyclable. The carbon-fiber composite ties are repurposed into new structural configurations without loss in properties.

This book tells the improbable stories of Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering and the iFoundry incubator at the University of Illinois. That either one survived is story enough, but what they found out together changes the course of education transformation forever: • How trust is key to unleashing young, courageous engineers. • How engineers need to move from a narrow technical education to one that actively engages six minds. • How emotion and culture-not content, curriculum & pedagogy-are the crucial elements of change. • How all stakeholders can collaborate to disrupt the status quo. A Whole New Engineer is a book that seriously looks at the coming revolution in engineering.

Have you ever thought that the design, development and manufacturing process was overburdened with irrelevant procedures and at the same time missing important features? If so, Commonsense Engineering: Simple, Effective Practices for Engineering and Quality Control is the title you have been looking for! It summarizes the 45 years of experience of the author, Gary Casey, PE, during which he has come to just those conclusions. According to Casey, what is missing is a good dose of common sense, and this book gives a number of examples of how to use common sense in the product development and manufacturing processes. It isn’t all inclusive, but instead is intended to spark the imagination of the reader so he/she, too, can apply common-sense principles to engineering, manufacturing and quality processes in his or her own career.

This is a book for people wanting to learn the language of Science, Technology, and Engineering, and is intended to complement traditional text books in Mathematics. It puts the fun back into mathematics by demystifying confusing symbols and terminology – Think of this book as your personal journey leading to an eventual understanding of calculus, using everyday language to introduce new concepts in small manageable steps. Extensive use of color diagrams, pictures, and graphs are used throughout the book. Microsoft Excel is introduced early to show how mathematics can be made visual. Excel’s hidden equation solving talents are revealed.

Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students is the leading self- contained aircraft structures course text. It covers all fundamental subjects, including elasticity, structural analysis, airworthiness and aero-elasticity. Now in its fifth edition, the author has revised and updated the text throughout and added new examples and exercises using Matlab TM. Additional examples make the text even more accessible by showing application of concepts to airframe structures. Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students includes a Solutions Manual available to all adopting teachers and an extensive aircraft design project case study, which shows the application of the major techniques in the book.
