Understanding Aerodynamics: Arguing from the Real Physics

Design and Development of Aircraft Systems, 2e

J. Douglas Mclean

Ian Moir, Allan Seabridge

978-1-119-96751-4 / 1-119-96751-1 592 pp. Pub: 16/11/12 Aeronautic & Aerospace Engineering

978-1-119-94119-4 / 1-119-94119-9 380 pp. Pub: 30/11/12 Aeronautic & Aerospace Engineering

Based on the author's decades of industrial experience with Boeing, this book helps students and practicing engineers to gain a greater physical understanding of aerodynamics. Relying on clear physical arguments and examples, Mclean provides a much-needed, fresh approach to this sometimes contentious subject without shying away from addressing "real" aerodynamic situations as opposed to the oversimplified ones frequently used for mathematical convenience. Motivated by the belief that engineering practice is enhanced in the long run by a robust understanding of the basics as well as real cause-and-effect relationships that lie behind the theory, he provides intuitive physical interpretations and explanations, debunking commonly-held misconceptions and misinterpretations, and building upon the contrasts provided by wrong explanations to strengthen understanding of the right ones.

Now covering both conventional and unmanned systems, this is a significant update of the definitive book on aircraft system design. This title is for people who want to understand how industry develops the customer requirement into a fully integrated, tested, and qualified product that is safe to fly and fit for purpose. This edition has been updated to take into account the growth of unmanned air vehicles, together with updates to all chapters to bring them in line with current design practice and technologies as taught on courses. •

Provides a holistic view of aircraft system design describing the interaction between all of the subsystems such as fuel system, navigation, flight control etc.

Covers all aspects of design including systems engineering, design drivers, systems architectures, systems integration, modeling of systems, practical considerations, & systems examples.

Incorporates essential new material on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).

Overall the book has been written to be generic and not to describe any single process. It informs readers of the work that is carried out by engineers in the aerospace industry to produce innovative and challenging - yet safe and reliable systems and aircraft. Aerospace engineers, airline operators. Company medical specialists, human factors specialists, legal and contracts officers, pilots and aircrew.

Provides intuitive physical interpretations and explanations, debunking commonly-held misconceptions and misinterpretations.

Offers new insights to some familiar topics, for example, what the Biot-Savart law really means and why it causes so much confusion, what "Reynolds number" and "incompressible flow" really mean, and a real physical explanation for how an airfoil produces lift.

Addresses "real" aerodynamic situations as opposed to the oversimplified ones frequently used for mathematical convenience, and omits mathematical details whenever the physical understanding can be conveyed without them.

Aeroelasticity using the Finite Element Method

Systems Integration of Air-launched Weapons

Erasmo Carrera, Marco Petrolo, Alberto Varello, Enrico Zappino

Keith Antony Rigby 978-0-470-97118-5 / 0-470-97118-5 250 pp. Pub: 18/01/13 Aeronautic & Aerospace Engineering

978-1-118-33785-1 / 1-118-33785-9 300 pp. Pub: 26/04/13 Aeronautic & Aerospace Engineering

The systems integration aspects of weapons integration is a complex, multi-disciplinary activity that is not currently covered by published literature. It covers the various aspects of weapons integration, primarily from the launch aircraft systems integration viewpoint. The author tackles all of the fundamental issues, including the use of GPS to extend the effectiveness of older airframes (e.g. B-52), interoperability within NATO countries, and the challenge of the design of autonomous platforms carrying weapons as part of unmanned aircraft systems. Designed to complement “on-the-job training” with experienced weapons integrators, this title builds knowledge and experience quicker than would be gained on a real integration programme as well as serving as a useful revision source for experienced engineers in the field.

Uses advanced structural theories to formulate and describe the coupling between finite elements and classical aerodynamic theories. Aeroelasticity using the Finite Element Method deals with the Aeroelasticity of lifting bodies (wings and panels) by the Finite Element Method (FEM). It focuses on Aeroelasticity problems related to wings and panels: wings in subsonic range and panel in supersonic regime are treated. The structural models used are built by using classical and advanced one-dimensional (beams) and two-dimensional models (plates/shells) for the analysis of metallic and layered structures made by advanced composite materials. The elastic problems are formulated by means of finite element method. The aerodynamic fields and loadings are expressed by considering known theories used in classical aeroelasticity analysis: strip theory (in both steady and unsteady form), Theodorsen models, Vortex Lattice Method, Double Lattice Method and Piston Theory. Static and dynamic aeroelastic responses are both addressed. Static (divergence) and dynamic (flutter) response, including panel flutter are detailed in the book.

Chapters include Stores Management System Design, Weapon Aiming, GPS Weapon Interface Standards, Other Weapons Integration Standards, Interface Control Documents, ‘Plug and Play’ Weapons Integration, Aircraft, Launcher & Weapons Interoperability Open Systems, Integration Process, The Universal Armament Interface, Unmanned Systems, Training Systems and Reducing the Cost of Weapons Integration.

Vibration Testing, with Modal Testing and Health Monitoring

Piet M. Lugt 978-1-118-35391-2 / 1-118-35391-9 400 pp. Pub: 11/01/13 Mechanical Engineering - Design

Joseph Slater

The definitive book on the science of grease lubrication for roller and needle bearings in industrial and vehicle engineering.

978-0-470-02680-9 / 0-470-02680-4 400 pp. Pub: 24/05/13 Aeronautic & Aerospace Engineering

Grease Lubrication in Rolling Bearings provides an overview of the existing knowledge on the various aspects of grease lubrication (including lubrication systems) and the state of the art models that exist today. The book reviews the physical and chemical aspects of grease lubrication, primarily directed towards lubrication of rolling bearings.

In Vibration Testing, with Modal Testing Analysis and Health Monitoring, Slater addresses the need for an accessible and practical text covering the broad field of vibration testing in structures and machine health monitoring. The book is divided into clear chapters giving an overview of the major topics. This begins with a review of the fundamentals (both single and multiple degree of freedom systems), then goes on to cover probability theory, random signal analysis, equipment and initiation tests in vibration testing, modal analysis and correction, and machine health monitoring. Generally, the book is practice oriented with real-world examples, problems, laboratory experiments and a solutions manual, additionally, there are sufficient sections written from a theoretical perspective to allow the instructor to follow either an applied or theoretical track, at their discretion. In creating a book with this scope, Slater lays the foundation for more rigorous treatments of the subject, while training the engineer to be competent in testing. •

Broad coverage gives a multi-disciplinary perspective for both mechanical and electrical engineers.

Application-oriented sections with examples, problems, laboratory experiments and software give the text a practical focus.

Combines the areas of structural testing with machine health monitoring, providing an approach that is rarely found in other textbooks.

The first part of the book covers grease composition, properties and rheology, including thermal and dynamics properties. Later chapters cover the dynamics of greased bearings, including grease life, bearing life, reliability and testing. The final chapter covers lubrications systems – the systems that deliver grease to the components requiring lubrication. Describes the underlying physical and chemical properties of grease.

Discusses the effect of load, speed, temperature, bearing geometry, bearing materials and grease type on bearing wear.

Covers both bearing and grease performance, including thermo-mechanical ageing and testing methodologies.

It is intended for researchers and engineers in the petro-chemical and bearing industry, industries related to this (e.g. wind turbine industry, automotive industry) and for application engineers. It will also be of interest for teaching in post-graduate courses. Piet M. Lugt, SKF Engineering and Research Centre, The Netherlands, has fulfilled several positions in Tribology and Lubrication. He was a Visiting Professor at Luleå Technical University, Sweden from 2005-2008, and is currently a visiting Professor at the University of Twente.

Finite Element Analysis of Structures by Unified Formulation

A. J. McEvily, Jirapong Kasivitamnuay 978-1-118-16396-2 / 1-118-16396-6 352 pp. Pub: 03/04/13 Failure Fracture

Erasmo Carrera 978-1-119-94121-7 / 1-119-94121-0 256 pp. Pub: 08/03/13 Computational / Numerical Methods

Failure analysis is of critical importance in the world today. This is due in part to the high cost in lives and money of catastrophic failures that may have been prevented. Failures effect structures in a broad range of industries from machinery to aircraft, building structures, and as we've seen recently nuclear power facilities. To analyze failure, engineers and designers need to understand not only what happened but also how, from a structural point-of-view, the failure occurred. An outcome of a successful investigation may lead to improvements in design and manufacture which preclude a particular type of accident from happening again. An investigation may also lead to a proper assignment of responsibility either to the operator, the manufacturer, or the maintenance and inspection organization involved.

The Finite Element Method (FEM) is a computational tool widely used to analyze structures. Currently, there are a number of different approaches to analysis using FEM that vary according to the type of structure being analyzed – plates and beams may use 1D or 2D approaches, shells and solids 2D or 3D approaches and methods that work for one structure are typically not optimized to work for another. Carrera has developed a new method referred to as the Unified Formulation which can be applied to any elastic solid structure, so simplifying the process considerably. This is what is described in the book. This book deals with the Finite Element Method for the analysis of elastic structures, such as beams, plates, shells and solids. The modern approach of Unified Formulation (UF), as proposed by the lead author, deals with the consideration of one-dimensional (beams), two-dimensional (plates and shells) and three-dimensional (solids) elements. Applications are given for structures which are typically employed in civil, mechanical and aerospace engineering fields. Additional topics including mixed order elements formulated on the basis of different kinematic assumptions, extension to layered composite structures and the analysis of multifield problems involving mechanical, electrical and thermal loadings are also addressed.

McEvily's book is one of the only available that covers not only how failure occurs but also the examination methods developed to expose the reasons for failure. The new edition will contain updates of all chapters plus new coverage of; elastic behavior and plastic deformation, localized necking, the phenomenological aspects of fatigue, fatigue crack propagation, alloys and coatings, tensors and tensor notations, and much more.

Erasmo Carrera, Professor of Aerospace Structures & Computational Aeroelasticity and Deputy Director of Department of Aerospace Engineering, Politecnico di Torino, has authored circa 200 journal and conference papers. Maria Cinefra, Marco Petrolo and Enrico Zappino are research scientists in the Department of Aeronautics & Space Engineering, Politecnico di Torino.

Revision of a well-known classic that is considered to have the most comprehensive coverage of both the "how" and "why" of metal failure.

Features separate chapters on key failure mechanisms and includes excellent case studies and examples.

Covers statistical data, report writing, legal testimony, and more.

Mechanical, materials, aerospace, and civil engineering students in courses of failure, fatigue, or stress analysis usually offered as a single semester course in upper level undergraduate or graduate programs. Professionals involved in failure analysis in the subject areas above. Arthur J. McEvily, Professor Emeritus, Department of Metallurgy & Materials Engineering, University of Connecticut. Professor J.

Nanoimprinting is a type of lithographic process that provides a simple and efficient way of patterning nanostructures. Nanoscale pattern transfer technology is a rapidly advancing area, and because of this understanding of the basic science and an overview of the technologies available is necessary. Applications of nanoscale pattern transfer technology include moulds made of silicon or metal, polymer films, metal printing press and light-reflective films.

Probabilistic analysis is increasing in popularity and importance within engineering and the applied sciences. However, the stochastic perturbation technique is a fairly recent development and therefore remains as yet unknown to many students, researchers and engineers. Fields in which the methodology can be applied are widespread, including various branches of engineering, heat transfer and statistical mechanics, reliability assessment and also financial investments or economical prognosis in analytical and computational contexts.

This book covers the latest nanotransfer science based on polymer behaviour. Polymer fluid dynamics are described in detail, and injection moulding, nanoimprint lithography, micro contact printing are also discussed. Cutting edge nanotransfer technologies and applications are also described in detail and future trends in industry are examined. The book aims to impart knowledge of these new nanoimprint technologies and to ensure that the reader gains basic comprehension of nano-transfer mechanisms and methods.

This book is devoted to the theoretical aspects and computational implementation of the generalized stochastic perturbation technique. It is based on any order Taylor expansions of random variables and enables for determination of up to fourth order probabilistic moments and characteristics of the physical system response. •

Provides grounding in the basic elements of statistics and probability and reliability engineering.

Describes the Stochastic Finite, Boundary Element and Finite Difference Methods, formulated according to the perturbation method.

Demonstrates dual computational implementation of the perturbation method with the use of Direct Differentiation Method and the Response Function Method.

Performance-Based Gear Metrology: Kinematic Transmission - Error Computation and Diagnosis

Practical Multiscaling Jacob Fish 978-1-118-41068-4 / 1-118-41068-8 350 pp. Pub: 01/02/13 Solid Mechanics Multiscale approaches fall into one of the two categories: information-passing (or hierarchical) and concurrent. In the information-passing multiscale approach the fine-scale response is idealized (approximated or unresolved) and its overall (average) response is infused into coarse-scale. In the concurrent approaches, fine- and coarse- scale resolutions are simultaneously employed in different portions of the problem domain and exchange of information occurs through the interface. The information-passing multiscale approach aims at deriving constitutive equations (or directly field quantities) from finer scale(s), where established laws of physics are believed to be better understood. The enormous gains that can be accrued by this approach have been reported in numerous articles. Multiscale computations have been identified as one of the areas critical to future nanotechnology and biotechnology advances. .

William D. Mark 978-1-119-96169-7 / 1-119-96169-6 280 pp. Pub: 09/11/12 Solid Mechanics A mathematically rigorous explanation of how manufacturing deviations and damage on the working surfaces of gear teeth cause transmission-error contributions to vibration excitations. Some gear-tooth working-surface manufacturing deviations of significant amplitude cause negligible vibration excitation and noise, yet others of minuscule amplitude are a source of significant vibration excitation and noise. Presently available computer-numerically-controlled dedicated gear metrology equipment can measure such error patterns on a gear in a few hours in sufficient detail to enable accurate computation and diagnosis of the resultant transmission-error vibration excitation. How to efficiently measure such working-surface deviations, compute from these measurements the resultant transmission-error vibration excitation, and diagnose the manufacturing source of the deviations, is the subject of this book.

Practical Multiscaling covers fundamental modeling techniques aimed at bridging diverse temporal and spatial scales ranging from the atomic level to a full-scale product level. The focus is on practical multiscale methods that account for fine-scale (material) details, but do not require their precise resolution. It also deals with both theory and practical utilization of multiscale principles in practice. The multiscale design software and a detailed tutorial provide a hands-on-experience in utilizing multiscale technology for practical applications.

Design of Foundations for Expansive Soils

The Big Dig: Perspectives on Risk and Project Management from America's Largest Megaproject

John D. Nelson, Geoff K. Chao, Daniel D. Overton 978-0-470-58152-0 / 0-470-58152-2 384 pp. Pub: 29/05/13 Soil (Civil Engineering) Expansive soil is a term generally applied to any soil or rock material that has a potential for shrinking or swelling under changing moisture conditions. The primary problem that arises with regard to expansive soils is that deformations are significantly greater than in non-expansive soils and the size and direction of the deformations is difficult to predict. Movement is usually in an uneven pattern and of such magnitude to cause extensive damage to the structures and the pavement resting on them. Expansive soils cause more damage to structures, particularly light building and pavements, than any other natural hazard including earthquakes and floods.

Virginia A. Greiman 978-1-118-11547-3 / 1-118-11547-3 304 pp. Pub: 08/05/13 Civil Engineering & Construction The Big Dig is the unofficial name of the Central Artery/Tunnel Project (CA/T), a megaproject in Boston that rerouted the Central Artery (Interstate 93), the chief highway through the heart of the city, into a 3.5-mile (5.6-km) tunnel, and includes several other constructions. The project was the largest, most complex urban infrastructure project in the history of the US and included unprecedented planning and engineering. Its list of engineering firsts include the deepest underwater connection and the largest slurry wall application in North America, unprecedented ground freezing and tunnel jacking, extensive deep-soil mixing programs to stabilize Boston's soils, the world's widest cable stayed bridge, and the largest tunnel ventilation system in the world.

This book fills the significant void covering the design and construction of foundations for expansive soils. It describes proven methods for identifying and analyzing expansive soils and developing foundation designs appropriate for a specific location.

Systems Engineering Cost Strategies to the Prediction, Estimation with COSYSMO Mitigation and Management of Product Obsolescence R. Valerdi Bjoern Bartels, Ulrich Ermel, Peter Sandborn, Michael G. Pecht

978-0-470-19549-9 / 0-470-19549-5 390 pp. Pub: 28/09/12 Systems Engineering & Management

978-1-118-14064-2 / 1-118-14064-8 304 pp. Pub: 28/05/12 Systems Engineering & Management

This book introduces the only systems engineering parametric cost model available an industry-calibrated model known as the Constructive Systems Engineering Cost Model (COSYSMO). Lack of such a model in the past has caused systems engineering costs to be bundled with other program management costs. Its use will allow for sufficiently quantifiable justification for properly assigning systems engineering costs.

This book describes the fundamental issues associated with the occurrence of obsolescence and its management in order to build a consistent basis for its management, including prediction, life cycle forecasting, reactive and proactive mitigations, and strategic treatments. Supply chains for electronic products are primarily driven by consumer electronics. Every year new mobile phones, computers and gaming consoles are introduced, driving the continued applicability of Moore's law. The semiconductor manufacturing industry is highly dynamic and releases new, better and cheaper products day by day. But what happens to long-field life products like airplanes or ships, which need the same components for decades? How do electronic and also non-electronic systems that need to be manufactured and supported of decades manage to continue operation using parts that were available for a few years at most? This book attempts to answer these questions.

• COSYSMO (Constructive Systems Engineering Cost Model) is the only systems engineering parametric cost model available. • Three commercial tool vendors have incorporated the COSYSMO algorithm in their product suite. The three vendors are Galorath Inc., PRICE Systems and Softstar Systems. • The author of this book is the originator of COSYSMO. • The book includes a case study.

This is the only book on the market that covers obsolescence forecasting methodologies, including forecasting tactics for hardware and software that enable cost-effective proactive product life-cycle management. This book describes how to implement a comprehensive obsolescence management system within diverse companies. Strategies to the Prediction, Mitigation and Management of Product Obsolescence is a must-have work for all professionals in product/project management, sustainment engineering and purchasing.

Well-known software engineering author Capers Jones1 indicates that the U.S. market for software project management tools is approximately $1 billion annually, and that about 19% of these tools are cost estimation tools (about $200 million). Project management tools for hardware projects probably represent a smaller market since they are more predictable development activities. Considering only the software cost estimation tool market of $200 million, it is reasonable to assume that the market for systems engineering cost estimation tools can approach a similar market size in the next 10 years. Since COSYSMO is the only parametric cost estimation model currently available, there is an obvious opportunity for this book to be at the forefront of this growth.
