Civil Jet Aircraft Design

This book represents a comprehensive introduction to the modern process of designing transport aircraft from the preliminary stages of conceptual design to detail design of major aircraft components, including cost analysis and optimization. The three authors ensure a balanced presentation, with viewpoints from an educator, a practicing engineer/designer, and an official from the Civil Aviation Authority, U.K.

One of the main objectives of this text is to introduce students to the procedures and practices of civil aircraft design involving conflicting requirements of performance, quality, safety, and environmental issues. The first part of the text deals with the main elements of the preliminary design process for principal aircraft components of a civil transport, including the parametric methods used to define the baseline design configuration. The second part describes the use of spreadsheet methods in aircraft design on four separate design studies.

Optimal Control of Induction Heating Processes

Optimal Control of Induction Heating Processes (Dekker Mechanical Engineering)
Publisher: CRC | 2006-07-07 | ISBN 0849337542 | Pages: 349 | PDF
This book introduces new approaches to solving optimal control problems in induction heating process applications. Optimal Control of Induction Heating Processes demonstrates how to apply and use new optimization techniques for different types of induction heating installations. Focusing on practical methods for solving real engineering optimization problems, the text features a variety of specific optimization examples for induction heater modes and designs, particularly those used in industrial applications. The book describes basic physical phenomena in induction heating and induction heating process (IHP) optimization problems as well as IHP mathematical models for practical use. It explains the fundamentals of the new exact method and the advantages it offers over other well-known methods. A sound introduction to the broad theory of optimal control, Optimal Control of Induction Heating Processes presents a clear and accessible approach to the modern design and control of practical, cost-effective induction heating processes. This book is ideal for all students, production managers, engineers, designers, scientists, and users of induction heating machinery who would like to study, design, and improve processes of induction mass heating.


Evaluating Process Safety in the Chemical Industry

Evaluating Process Safety in the Chemical Industry: A User's Guide to Quantitative Risk Analysis
Publisher: Wiley-AIChE | 2000-12 | ISBN 0816907463 | Pages: 74 | PDF

Quantitative Risk Analysis is a powerful tool used to help manage risk and improve safety. When used appropriately, it provides a rational basis for evaluating process safety and comparing alternative safety improvements. This guide, an update of an earlier American Chemistry Council (ACC) publication utilizing the "hands-on" experience of CPI risk assessment practitioners and safety professionals involved with the CCPS and ACC, explains how managers and users can make better-informed decisions about QRA, and how plant engineers and process designers can better understand, interpret and use the results of a QRA in their plant.
