Mechanical Science for Technicians, Volume 1, Second Edition focuses on the understanding of mechanical engineering and analytical approaches to solutions of problems involving deformation of materials, dynamics, and fluid flow. The monograph first elaborates on stress, strain, elasticity, and shear force and bending moment and stress. Discussions focus on the relationship between bending stress and external bending moment, assumptions made in the simple theory of bending, geometrical properties of plane sections, stress and strain in composite bars, and the effect of temperature change on composite bars. The manuscript then takes a look at the torsion of circular shafts, including torsion of hollow circular shafts, shear stress and angle of twist, and the relationship between shear stress and external torque. The text examines angular motion, kinetic energy, simple oscillations, and fluids in motion. Topics include pressure, kinetic, and potential energy, effect of approach velocity on flow through an orifice, oscillations of a simple pendulum, rotational or angular kinetic energy, and equations of uniform angular motion. The monograph is a valuable reference for engineers and researchers interested in mechanical engineering.

Strength of Materials for Technicians covers basic concepts and principles and theoretical explanations about strength of materials, together with a number of worked examples on the application of the different principles. The book discusses simple trusses, simple stress and strain, temperature, bending, and shear stresses, as well as thin-walled pressure vessels and thin rotating cylinders. The text also describes other stress and strain contributors such as torsion of circular shafts, close-coiled helical springs, shear force and bending moment, strain energy due to direct stresses, and second moment of area. Testing of materials by tests of tension, compression, shear, cold bend, hardness, impact, and stress concentration and fatigue is also tackled. Students taking courses in strength of materials and engineering and civil engineers will find the book invaluable.

Horath effectively combines principles and theory with practical applications to provide a solid understanding of the characteristics of materials used in today’s machines, devices, structures, and consumer products. Straightforward, nonmathematical coverage uncovers the basic premises of materials science and mechanical behavior as they relate to all types of materials: ferrous and nonferrous metals; polymers and elastomers; wood and wood products; ceramics and glass; cement, concrete, and asphalt; composites; adhesives and coatings; and fuels and lubricants. An examination of the chemistry of materials illuminates the common properties important to material applications and how they may be created, reduced, and altered for the design and development of additional materials. Clearly written with an applied, problem-solving approach, the Second Edition is a sound introduction to materials technology. Strong coverage of the destructive and nondestructive evaluation of material properties builds the groundwork for inspection processes and testing techniques, such as tensile, creep, compression, shear, bend or flexure, hardness, impact, and fatigue. Laboratory assignments support the text with numerous hands-on exercises that develop skills in industry-sanctioned testing procedures, data collection, reporting and graphing, and determining additional appropriate tests.

Mechanical Technology for Higher Engineering Technicians deals with the mechanics of machines, thermodynamics, and mechanics of fluids. This book presents discussions and examples that deal with the strength of materials, technology of machines, and techniques used by professional engineers. The book explains the strain energy of torsion, coil springs, and the effects of axial load. The author also discusses the forces that produce bending, shearing, and bending combined with direct stress, as well as beams subjected to a uniform bending moment or simply supported beams with concentrated non-central load. The author explains the equations to determine force in shear stress resulting from a tensile load or how to determine maximum shear stress. He explains Poisson's Ratio, the Mohr Circle, and the theories of Coulomb, Tresca, and Guest. He discusses fluid mechanics, combustion, heat transfer, and troboengineering. He points out that friction between two surfaces causes heat: to avoid the rise in temperature, the two surfaces can be 1) separated with the use of lubricants or bearings, or 2) use of low friction materials. He also discusses the equations used for proportional control, derivative control, and integral control. This book is intended for candidates at the HNC in Mechanical Engineering for qualification as engineering technicians.

One of the main, ongoing challenges for any engineering enterprise is that systems are built of materials subject to environmental degradation. Whether working with an airframe, integrated circuit, bridge, prosthetic device, or implantable drug-delivery system, understanding the chemical stability of materials remains a key element in determining their useful life. Environmental Degradation of Advanced and Traditional Engineering Materials is a monumental work for the field, providing comprehensive coverage of the environmental impacts on the full breadth of materials used for engineering infrastructure, buildings, machines, and components. The book discusses fundamental degradation processes and presents examples of degradation under various environmental conditions. Each chapter presents the basic properties of the class of material, followed by detailed characteristics of degradation, guidelines on how to protect against corrosion, and a description of testing procedures. A complete, self-contained industrial reference guide, this valuable resource is designed for students and professionals interested in the development of deterioration-resistant technological systems constructed with metallurgical, polymeric, ceramic, and natural materials.
