While ultra-precision machines are now achieving sub-nanometer accuracy, unique challenges continue to arise due to their tight specifications. Written to meet the growing needs of mechanical engineers and other professionals to understand these specialized design process issues, Introduction to Precision Machine Design and Error Assessment places a particular focus on the errors associated with precision design, machine diagnostics, error modeling, and error compensation. Error Assessment and Control The book begins with a brief overview of precision engineering and applications before introducing error measurements and offering an example of a numerical-controlled machine error assessment. The contributors discuss thermal error sources and transfer, modeling and simulation, compensation, and machine tool diagnostics, and then examine the principles and strategies involved in designing standard-size precision machines. Later chapters consider parallel kinematic machines, the precision control techniques covering linear systems and nonlinear aspects, and various types of drives, actuators, and sensors required for machines. Case studies and numerous diagrams and tables are provided throughout the book to clarify material. A Window Into the Future of High-Precision Manufacturing Achieving ultra-high precision in the manufacture of extremely small devices opens up prospects in several diverse and futuristic fields, while at the same time greatly increases our living standards by offering quality and reliability for conventional products and those on the microscale. With contributions by a team of international experts, this work serves as a comprehensive and authoritative reference for professionals aiming to stay abreast of this developing area.

Aspiring engineers need a text that prepares them to use thermodynamics in professional practice. Thermodynamics instructors need a concise textbook written for a one-semester undergraduate course—a text that foregoes clutter and unnecessary details but furnishes the essential facts and methods. Thermodynamics for Engineers, Second Edition continues to fill both those needs. Paying special attention to the learning process, the author has developed a unique, practical guide to classical thermodynamics. His approach is remarkably cohesive. For example, he develops the same example through his presentation of the first law and both forms of the second law—entropy and exergy. He also unifies his treatments of the conservation of energy, the creation of entropy, and the destruction of availability by using a balance equation for each, thus emphasizing the commonality between the laws and allowing easier comprehension and use. This Second Edition includes a new chapter on thermodynamic property relations and gives updated, expanded problem sets in every chapter. Accessible, practical, and cohesive, the text builds a solid foundation for advanced engineering studies and practice. It exposes students to the "big picture" of thermodynamics, and its streamlined presentation allows glimpses into important concepts and methods rarely offered by texts at this level. What’s New in This Edition: Updated and expanded problem sets New chapter on thermodynamic property relations Updated chapter on heat transfer Electronic figures available upon qualifying course adoption End-of-chapter poems to summarize engineering principles
