Maintenance, Replacement, and Reliability: Theory and Applications (2nd Edition) (Dekker Mechanical Engineering)

Put up 12 months notice: First released in 1973, first edition

A thoroughly revised and up-to-date variation of a bestseller, upkeep, alternative, and Reliability: idea and functions, moment version provides the instruments wanted for making data-driven actual asset administration judgements.

The well-received first variation fast turned a mainstay for professors, scholars, and execs, with its transparent presentation of options instantly appropriate to real-life occasions. in spite of the fact that, study is ongoing and incessant in just a couple of brief years, a lot has changed.

Fluid- und Thermodynamik: Eine Einführung

Auf der Grundlage eines allgemein verständlichen, beiden Gebieten gemeinsamen Konzepts wird eine Einführung in die Fluid- und Thermodynamik gegeben. Die Fluiddynamik umfaßt die Hydrostatik, die Hydrodynamik der idealen und viskosen Fluide sowie die laminaren und turbulenten Rohrströmungen. In der Thermodynamik werden nach Einführung der Begriffe und der Darstellung der thermischen Zustandsgleichungen idealer Gase der erste und zweite Hauptsatz behandelt, beginnend mit der für adiabate, einfache Systeme gültigen shape nach Caratheodory bis hin zur Bilanzaussage von Clausius Duhem mit Anwendungen auf wärmeleitende viskose Fluide und die kanonischen Zustandsgleichungen.
