Standard handbook of industrial automation by Douglas M Considine( Book )

12 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors and editors of this Handbook have attempted to fill a serious gap in the professional literature on industrial automation. Much past attention has been directed to the general concepts and philosophy of automation as a way to convince owners and managers of manufacturing facilities that automation is indeed one of the few avenues available to increase productivity and improve competitive position. Seventy-three contributors share their knowledge in this Handbook. Less attention has been given to the "What" and "How" of automation. To the extent feasible and practical within the confines of the pages allowed, this Handbook concentrates on the implementation of automation. Once the "Go" signal has been given by management, concrete details-not broad definitions and philosophical discussions-are required. To be found in this distinctly different book in the field are detailed parameters for designing and specifying equipment, the options available with an evaluation of their relative advantages and limitations, and insights for engineers and production managers on the operation and capabilities of present-generation automation system components, subsystems, and total systems. In a number of instances, the logical extension of current technology into the future is given. A total of 445 diagrams and photos and 57 tables augments detailed discussions. In addition to its use as a ready reference for technical and management personnel, the book has wide potential for training and group discussions at the college and university level and for special education programs as may be provided by consultants or by "in-house" training personnel
Foods and food production encyclopedia by Douglas M Considine( )

9 editions published between 1982 and 2009 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this encyclopedia, three fundamental stages of food production are addressed: 1. The start or initiation of the natural food-growth cycle--the seeds, rootstocks, seeding trees, the mating or artificial insemination of livestock, the stocking of fisheries, among others; 2. The nurture of growing plants and animals through harvest, roundup, and postharvest preparation, from which point 'raw' food materials go either to (a) the fresh market; or (b) processors; 3. The processing of 'raw' food materials into more refined and complex products for the marketplace."--P. v

Van Nostrand's chemical encyclopedia( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chemistry, the central science, is growing today along interdisciplinary lines. Scientists, engineers, and technologists in many fields need knowledge of chemistry because of its importance in diverse technologies. These fields include electronics and communications, energy sources and conservation, waste handling and pollution abatement, biotechnology, molecular biology, and the development of pharmaceuticals and chemotherapeutic methodologies." "Updated for today's multidisciplinary readership, this new Fifth Edition of Van Nostrand's Encyclopedia of Chemistry preserves the qualities of the original Encyclopedia - accessibility, succinctness, and completeness - while encompassing a wider area of interest and the progress made in the past two decades. In addition to the classical topics, the new Encyclopedia covers the latest subjects." "This Fifth Edition features more than 1,350 entirely new articles, extensive revision and updates of more than 1,300 existing articles, and an expanded subject index. Topics still receive a progressive treatment - a simple definition leads to a more extensive discussion with print and Internet references - which makes this an essential resource for both students and experienced practitioners. This edition also features many more tables and graphs, as well as more interior references for greater ease in understanding the full extent of a subject. The sophistication and specialization of today's chemistry is well served by the many expert contributors from industry and academia." "Revised and expanded to reflect the latest scholarship and technology, Van Nostrand's Encyclopedia of Chemistry, Fifth Edition still represents the benchmark chemical reference for individual researchers and students and is an essential part of any academic or industrial library."--Jacket
