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.
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 book provides a detailed description of the process-based body of knowledge (BoK) development methodology, and the expanded Quality BoK for the AS&D industry based on the work processes of the industry. The Standard of Knowledge for the Aviation, Space & Defense Industry Quality Practitioner: The AS&D Quality Body of Knowledge (BoK) Version 1 is based on applied research and peer-review validation of the actual quality-related business processes in the AS&D industry, this BoK provided the basis for ADLI professional certification of quality professionals. Essential to quality professionals, this new publication contains comprehensive business process knowledge, along with illustrations and tables to reinforce subjects.
This new edition, extensively updated, provides a complete explanation of 33 common procedures used by fuel handlers to assess and protect aviation fuel quality.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of recent advances in the analysis and design of health management systems for cooperating unmanned aerial vehicles. Such systems rely upon monitoring and fault adaptation schemes. Motivation for their study comes from the fact that, despite the use of fault-tolerant control software and hardware embedded onboard air vehicles, overall fleet performance may still be degraded after the occurrence of anomalous events such as systems faults and failures. Cooperative health management (CHM) systems seek to provide adaptation to the presence of faults by capitalizing on the availability of interconnected computing, sensing and actuation resources. This monograph complements the proposed CHM concepts by means of case studies and application examples. It presents fundamental principles and results encompassing optimization, systems theory, information theory, dynamics, modeling and simulation.
From concept to application, Fatigue and Durability of Metals at High Temperatures describes the method of strain-range partitioning for analyzing time-dependent fatigue. Creep (time-dependent) deformation is first introduced for monotonic and cyclic loading. Multiple chapters then discuss strain-range partitioning in details for multi-axial loading conditions and how different loading permutations can lead to different micro-mechanistic effects. The total-strain method of strain-range partitioning (SRP) is described, which is a methodology that sees use in several industries.
What should you do first when starting to implement lean manufacturing? What comes next, then next? With the raft of information now available about lean principles, it’s easy to get confused. Kaizen Express clarifies the process using a rapid, nonstop style to explain the essential elements of the Toyota Production System (TPS) in a logical implementation sequence. This succinct but comprehensive back-to-basics book offers lean novices and veterans alike a comprehensive primer on lean principles and implementation that returns to fundamentals and stresses the importance of learning by doing at the individual and team levels. “It’s easy to forget the fundamentals while pursuing advanced methods,” writes Jim Womack, LEI founder and chairman, in the Foreword. “I constantly encounter firms focusing on high-level issues of lean management, strategy, and corporate culture that have completely ignored creating a solid foundation at the level where the real work is done.”
This book explains how mechanical material behavior relates to the design of structural machine components. The major emphasis is on fatigue and failure behavior using engineering models that have been developed to predict, in advance of service, acceptable fatigue and other durability-related lifetimes. Information covers broad classes of materials used for high-performance structural applications such as aerospace components, automobiles, and power generation systems. Coverage focuses on metallic materials but also addresses unique capabilities of important nonmetals.
