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.

Sample text

Sustainability is gaining importance in today’s business environment. In response to this business imperative, companies realize that solely focusing on operational excellence will no longer be sufficient to stay competitive; they need to address sustainability demands as business-critical issues. Regulations, social awareness and responsibility, standards, and corporate citizenship are some of the many forces that are pushing companies to become more sustainable. In the manufacturing sector, maintenance is becoming a crucial competency in realizing a sustainable society especially when considering the entire life cycle of products and assets.

The effect of these actions should not be looked at solely from their effect on the asset management department because the consequences of such actions may seriously affect other units of the organization, such as production or operations. To illustrate the possible interactions of the asset management function in other departments, consider the effect of the decision to perform repairs only and not to do any preventive maintenance, such as overhauls. This decision may well reduce the budget for asset management, but it may also cause considerable production or operation downtime.

Examples of balanced scorecards for measuring asset management performance can be found in the work of Niven (1999) and Tsang and Brown (1999). 3 Continuous Improvements In pursuit of continuous improvement, two complementary methodologies that reflect different focuses are available to enhance the reliability (uptime) of physical assets. 7, respectively. Decisions are to be made on when to perform the selected maintenance action and how much resources are to be deployed to meet the expected maintenance demands.
