Online Book: Motors and Drives

Motors and Drives – A Practical Technology Guide by Dave Polka.
Publisher: ISA

Subject Area: Mechanics & Mechanical Engineering

Description: This practical reference introduces engineering concepts of motors and drives in a way that can be easily understood by both engineers unfamiliar with the technology and technicians who are technically literate but not accustomed to complex theory and mathematics.

It features simple explanations, summaries, review questions, glossaries, and reference tables for formulas and conversions.  Design engineers, automation and control specialists, maintenance technicians, and students will find this to be an invaluable resource both as a tutorial and desk reference.

Read the book online as part of the Knovel Library.  Access to this resource is limited to UVa faculty and students only from this URL.

Aircraft Structures

The Knovel Library contains hundreds of full-text online resources in a wide variety of science and engineering disciplines, as well as innovative research and analysis tools for using them. Here is one of the latest items to appear in the Knovel Library:

Composite Materials for Aircraft Structures (2nd Edition)
Publisher: AIAA
Description: The 2nd edition of this best-selling book provides an introduction to virtually all aspects of the technology of composite materials as used in aeronautical design and structure.  Since the first edition of this textbook in 1986, the use of high-performance polymer-matrix fiber composites in aircraft structures has grown steadily, although not as dramatically as predicted at that time.  The text discusses important differences in the technology of composites from that of metals–intrinsic substantive differences and their implications for manufacturing processes, structural design procedures, and in-service performance of the materials, particularly regarding the cause and nature of damage that may be sustained.

On a Roll
