Corrosion Control in the Aerospace Industry Edited by

Real Gas Flows with High Velocities

US Coast Guard, USA

Vladimir Lunev

“… written by professionals for professionals…”

Moscow Physical & Technical University, Russia

— Peter C. Gasson CEng, MIMechE, FRAe, in The Aeronautical Journal

Corrosion control in the aerospace industry is an issue that has always been important, but is becoming more so with the aging of the aircraft fleet. Corrosion can lead to aircraft becoming unusable, and in extreme cases, catastrophic failure. The first part of this important book reviews aging aircraft and the cost of corrosion. It goes on to discuss corrosion fundamentals and examine corrosion monitoring, evaluation, and prediction. A final section analyzes methods of corrosion protection and prevention.

Authored by one of Russia’s most respected aerospace researchers, this book covers real gas flows with regard to the physical and gasdynamic effects that accompany high-velocity flight in air or other atmospheres. In particular, it discusses the re-entry of bodies into the atmosphere of the earth and other planets. Chapters devoted to these problems are preceded by the presentation of the general theory of supersonic—and to some extent subsonic—flow, which is necessary for the comprehension of high-velocity gasdynamics from the overall methodological point of view.

Fundamentals of Incompressible Flow

Terry Wright

This book takes a novel approach to incompressible flow by first elucidating concepts such as viscosity and Reynolds number. The author derives incompressible Navier-Stokes equations and discusses the mathematical nature of their solutions.

Reverse Engineering Technology of Reinvention

Optical Tools Corporation, Newton Highlands, Massachusetts, USA

Wego Wang

Providing a balanced treatment of the theoretical and practical sides of application and design, this book distills knowledge from various branches of applied science—electrical and mechanical engineering, analog electronics, mechanics, control theory, digital electronics, embedded computing, and firmware design—into a cohesive framework. It takes readers on a journey through Servo school, enabling them to design real DC Servos, using modern, readily accessible parts from two benchtested reference designs. It provides a comprehensive toolset that designers can use to craft the more complex machines that society will demand in the 21st century.

Written to advance the technology of reinvention and improve the competitiveness of commercial parts in the aftermarket, this volume discusses the proper measuring and analyses required to reproduce or repair an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) part using modern reverse engineering technologies. It also covers the regulations that govern the practice. Offering numerous real-world examples, the book enables readers to determine if a duplicated or repaired part can meet the design functionality of the original. Going beyond industrial manufacturing, the book also looks at the use of reverse engineering in academic research, and legal and forensic analyses.

Practical Reliability Engineering and Analysis for System Design and Life-Cycle Sustainment William Wessels University of Alabama, Huntsville, USA

Structured in stand-alone sections, designed specifically for practicing engineers, this book addresses specific reliability and maintainability analysis methods for part design, systems integration and life-cycle sustainment. Unlike many books on this subject, it departs from the nearly exclusive use of the exponential probability distribution to characterize failure and demonstrates other probability distributions that more accurately describe the true behavior of failure. It emphasizes failure that results from wear-out over the useful life of the part. The engineering, rather than mathematical or statistical approach, sets this book a part.

Dynamics in Engineering Practice Tenth Edition Dara W. Childs Texas A&M, College Station, USA

Configurational Forces Thermomechanics, Physics, Mathematics, and Numerics Gerard A. Maugin Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France

Combining introductory and intermediate dynamics subject matter, the latest edition of this popular volume makes a difficult subject understandable. It covers dynamics essentials, including the development of models for dynamics and vibrations, and their subsequent analysis. It treats dynamics as a continuous evolution of motion using differential equations rather than algebrabased mathematics. Examples demonstrate the development of general modeling and analysis approaches for particle and rigid-body motion in planar motion. Recognizing the importance of computer usage and modeling in engineering and in dynamics, multiple MATLAB® computer example problems and tools are presented to help students master the subject.

Presenting the general framework of configurational forces, this book supplies an approach to material forces that can be used to predict the propagation of defects in materials ranging from dislocations and cracks in metals to domain walls in ferromagnets and many industrial components. It discusses a wide range of varied applications, including elasticity, plasticity, fracture, physics, and even biomechanics. Including numerous problems and examples, the author addresses such topics as field theory, canonical thermomechanics of complex continua, generalized continua, Eshelby stress, systems with mass exchange, electromagnetic materials, and numerical applications.

Tribology of Interface Layers Hooshang Heshmat Mohawk Innovative Technology, Inc., Albany, New York, USA

Many tribological devices act as viable bearings in contrast to basic hydrodynamic theory. Similarly, powder films possess quasi-hydrodynamic features that enable them to act as conventional fluid film bearings. These phenomena have led to a novel definition of lubricants as intermediate layers, which are detailed in this book. It illustrates that the various lubrication modes, from dry to hydrodynamic to powder lubrication, overlap to such a degree that they exist on a tribological spectrum. Based on experimental and theoretical work, this text shows how the interdependence of powder and hydrodynamic lubrication exemplify this continuum in tribological processes. Catalog no.
