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

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,216 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( )

2 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1,208 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

3D fibre reinforced polymer composites by Liyong Tong( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites are used in almost every type of advanced engineering structure, with their usage ranging from aircraft, helicopters and spacecraft through to boats, ships and offshore platforms and to automobiles, sports goods, chemical processing equipment and civil infrastructure such as bridges and buildlings. The usage of FRP composites continues to grow at an impessive rate as these materials are used more in their existing markets and become established in relatively new markets such as biomedical devices and civil structures. A key factor driving the increased applications of composites over the recent years is the development of new advanced forms of FRP materials. This includes developments in high performance resin systems and new styles of reinforcement, such as carbon nanotubes and nanoparticles. This book provides an up-to-date account of the fabrication, mechanical properties, delamination resistance, impact tolerance and applications of 3D FRP composites. The book focuses on 3D composites made using the textile technologies of weaving, braiding, knitting and stiching as well as by z-pinning." -- Publisher description

Modelling with AutoCAD 2004 by Robert McFarlane( )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modelling with AutoCAD 2004 is a course based on learning and practising the techniques of 3D modelling using AutoCAD. Bob McFarlanes' hands-on approach is uniquely suited to independent learning and use on courses. The focus on 3D drawing in one book, ensures the reader gets a thorough grounding in the subject, with a greater depth of coverage of 3D design than tends to be available from general introductions to AutoCAD. As a result, this book provides a true, step-by-step, detailed exploration of the AutoCAD functions required at each stage of producing a 3D drawing, an approach often not found in the many software reference guides available. The emphasis on learning through doing makes this book ideal for anyone involved in engineering, construction or architecture where the focus is on productivity and practical skills. The author has also matched the coverage to the requirements of City and Guilds, Edexcel (BTEC) and SQA syllabuses. New features in AutoCAD 2004 are covered in this book, making it a useful refresher course for anyone using AutoCAD at this level, and those upgrading to the new software release. The course is also designed to be fully relevant to anyone using other recent releases, including AutoCAD 2002. Bob McFarlane is Curriculum Manager for CAD and New Media at Motherwell College, Scotland, and an Autodesk Educational Developer. This work presents a complete course on 3D design with AutoCAD in one book ideal for independent learning. The exercises are included throughout to aid student learning and self assessment. The focus on 3D drawing techniques provides in-depth coverage to this specialised use of AutoCAD
