The new Bosch Automotive Handbook , now in its 9th English edition, has been completely revised and enhanced to include the most recent developments in automotive technology. About 200 specialist authors contributed to this new version of every engineer’s must-have reference. The book's format has been revised: it is now 20 percent longer and wider, as this allows for a larger font size. This makes the texts and graphics easier to read. The index has been strongly expanded to make looking up technical terms easier. The Bosch Automotive Handbook is a best-seller, with a broad global readership. Students of engineering programs consult it, as do researchers and engineers in the automotive industry. Mechanics who are studying to become master craftsmen also use it as a reference work. Experts trust the well-founded and extensive expertise that can be found in the classic. The Bosch Automotive Handbook is widely regarded around the world as a standard work for automotive technology.
This book gives readers a working knowledge of vehicle vibration, noise, and sound quality. The knowledge it imparts can be applied to analyze real-world problems and devise solutions that reduce vibration, control noise, and improve sound quality in all vehicles—ground, aerospace, rail, and marine. Also described and illustrated are fundamental principles, analytical formulations, design approaches, and testing techniques. Whole vehicle systems are discussed, as are individual components. The latest measurement and computation tools are presented to help readers with vehicle noise, vibration, and sound quality issues. The book opens with a presentation of the fundamentals of vibrations and basic acoustic concepts, as well as how to analyze, test, and control noise and vibrations. The next 2 chapters delve into noise and vibrations that emanate from powertrains, bodies, and chassis.
Buzz, Squeak and Rattle (BSR) is the industry term for the audible engineering challenges faced by all vehicle and component engineers. Minimizing BSR is of paramount importance when designing vehicle components and whole vehicle assemblies. This is the only book dedicated to the subject. It provides a self-contained reference to the background theory, testing, analysis and elimination of BSR. Written for practicing engineers and academics, the book has a focus on applications which will make it the standard handbook for those working in this area. Chapters from leading experts from across the motor industry - including from the design and research labs of Ford, Toyota, Daimler-Chrysler and GM - review the techniques available and provide readers with the appropriate physics, structural dynamics and materials science to address their own BSR issues.
This book, written for practicing engineers, designers, researchers, and students, summarizes basic vibration theory and established methods for analyzing vibrations. Principles of Vibration Analysis goes beyond most other texts on this subject, as it integrates the advances of modern modal analysis, experimental testing, and numerical analysis with fundamental theory. No other book brings all of these topics together under one cover. The authors have compiled these topics, compared them, and provided experience with practical application. This must-have book is a comprehensive resource that the practitioner will reference time and again.
This straightforward text, primer and reference introduces the theoretical, testing and control aspects of structural dynamics and vibration, as practiced in industry today. The book’s key features: • Worked example based makes it a thoroughly practical resource • Aimed at those studying to enter, and already working in industry • Presents an applied practice and testing based approach while remaining grounded in the theory of the topic • Makes the topic as easy to read as possible, omitting no steps in the development of the subject • Includes the use of computer based modeling techniques and finite elements • Covers theory, modeling testing and control in practice Written with the needs of engineers of a wide range of backgrounds in mind, this book will be a key resource for those studying structural dynamics and vibration at undergraduate level for the first time in aeronautical, mechanical, civil and automotive engineering.
