Elsevier's dictionary of herpetological and related terminology by David C Wareham( )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dictionary is a compilation of clear, concise and informative definitions of the characteristic vocabulary commonly encountered and used by herpetologists when discussing, reading, or writing about reptiles and amphibians. It is intended for all those who have an interest in these animals, from the amateur hobbyist who may find himself faced with what can be a rather intimidating scientific term or technical expression, to the trained zoologist who may sometimes have doubts over the exact meaning of a particular term. It will, it is hoped, not only be a useful source of reference to all wh
Engineering materials 2 : an introduction to microstructures, processing, and design by M. F Ashby( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1,175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Materials are evolving faster today than at any time in history. As a consequence the engineer must be more aware of materials and their potential than ever before. In comparing the properties of competing materials with precision involves an understanding of the basic properties of materials, how they are controlled by processing, formed, joined and finished and of the chain of reasoning that leads to a successful choice. This book will provide the reader with this understanding. Materials are grouped into four classes: Metals, Ceramics, Polymers and Composites, and each are examined in turn. The chapters are arranged in groups, with a group of chapters to describe each of the four classes of materials. Each group first of all introduces the major families of materials that go to make up each materials class. The main microstructural features of the class are then outlined and the reader is shown how to process or treat them to get the structures (properties) that are wanted. Each group of chapters is illustrated by Case Studies designed to help the reader understand the basic material. This book has been written as a second level course for engineering students. It provides a concise introduction to the microstructures and processing of materials and shows how these are related to the properties required in engineering design. Unique approach to the subject World-renowned author team Improved layout and format

Practical switching power supply design by Marty Brown( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Take the "black magic" out of switching power supplies with Practical Switching Power Supply Design! This is a comprehensive "hands-on" guide to the theory behind, and design of, PWM and resonant switching supplies. You'll find information on switching supply operation and selecting an appropriate topology for your application. There's extensive coverage of buck, boost, flyback, push-pull, half bridge, and full bridge regulator circuits. Special attention is given to semiconductors used in switching supplies. RFI/EMI reduction, grounding, testing, and safety standards are also detailed. Numerous design examples and equations are given and discussed. Even if your primary expertise is in logic or microprocessor engineering, you'll be able to design a power supply that's right for your application with this essential guide and reference! Key Features * Gives special attention to resonant switching power supplies, a state-of-the-art trend in switching power supply design * Approaches switching power supplies in an organized way beginning with the advantages of switching supplies and thier basic operating principles * Explores various configurations of pulse width modulated (PWM) switching supplies and gives readers ideas for the direction of their designs * Especially useful for practicing design engineers whose primary specialty is not in analog or power engineering fields
