Britains favourite steeplejack and industrial enthusiastic, the late Fred Dibnah, takes us back to the 18th century when the invention of the steam engine gave an enormous impetus to the development of machinery of all types. He reveals how the steam engine provided the first practical means of generating power from heat to augment the old sources of power (from muscle, wind and water) and provided the main source of power for the Industrial Revolution. In Fred Dibnahs Age of Steam Fred shares his passion for steam and meets some of the characters who devote their lives to finding, preserving and restoring steam locomotives, traction engines and stationary engines, mill workings and pumps. Combined with this will be the stories of central figures of the time, including James Watts - inventor of the steam engine - and Richard Trevithick who played a key role in the expansion of industrial Britain in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Examine some of the fundamental aspects of passenger movement through airports. The paper illustrates basic passenger needs that every airport planner must know.
There are many considerations to be made when planning large passenger movements through an airport. More passengers are saturating airports, and each passenger has an individual need or requirement. It is therefore the difficult responsibility of the airport to be able to accommodate the many passengers to make sure their departure, arrival, and connections go as smoothly as possible. Methods to ease the passenger transfer experience span from the very beginnings of airport construction and continue to evolve with facility expansions and technology improvements. The location and function of different facilities combined with several ground access aids serve as the foundation of managing passenger traffic quickly and effectively.
This is an engineering reference book on hybrid vehicle system analysis and design, an outgrowth of the author's substantial work in research, development and production at the National Research Council Canada, Azure Dynamics and now General Motors. It is an irreplaceable tool for helping engineers develop algorithms and gain a thorough understanding of hybrid vehicle systems. This book covers all the major aspects of hybrid vehicle modeling, control, simulation, performance analysis and preliminary design. It not only systemically provides the basic knowledge of hybrid vehicle system configuration and main components, but also details their characteristics and mathematic models.
An essential resource enabling hybrid development and design engineers to understand the hybrid vehicle systems necessary for control algorithm design and developments.
A glorious insight into the history, landscape and people of Britain, from The Sunday Times bestseller.
