Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Third Edition by A. R. Trott

By A. R. Trott

Using refrigeration, both without delay or as a part of an air-conditioning approach, is key to just about each department of undefined. there's a desire for practitioners to familiarise themselves with the overall ideas and techniques of refrigeration and air-con, and the kinds of plant and operation at present in use. This ebook presents a finished advent to the foundations and perform of refrigeration and air-conditioning for the uninitiated pupil and a normal evaluation of the for the practitioner. the basics of the topic are brought with out regarding the reader too deeply in concept and the content material is gifted in a logical order. This absolutely revised and up-to-date 3rd version has a brand new bankruptcy on Refrigerants that offers with the numerous alterations during this region during the last 10 years, together with the part out of CFC and HCFC refrigerants in response to Ozone depletion and international Warming. New, substitute refrigerants are defined, including Codes of perform brought for upkeep and servicing of refrigeration vegetation. The elevated use of Ammonia and Propane are incorporated, with the appropriate future health and protection facets, and the circulate in the direction of Absorption refrigeration apparatus as extra environmentally pleasant. This re-creation of Refrigeration and air-con is a helpful reference resource for practicing engineers and crucial interpreting for college kids.

Vorlesungen über Massivbau: Sechster Teil Grundlagen des by Dr.-Ing. Dr.-Ing. E.h. dr.techn. h.c. Fritz Leonhardt

By Dr.-Ing. Dr.-Ing. E.h. dr.techn. h.c. Fritz Leonhardt (auth.)

Der sechste Teil dieser "Vorlesungen über Massivbau" behandelt die Brücken aus Stahlbeton und Spannbeton, deren Bauarten und Bauweisen in den letzten Jahrzehnten eine ungewöhnliche Entwicklung erfahren haben. Der Verfasser battle seit 1934 im Brückenbau tätig und hat durch viele Neuerungen zu dieser Entwicklung beigetragen, er schöpft daher aus reicher eigener praktischer Erfahrung. Es warfare vor allem die Einführung des Spannbetons, der dem Beton­ brückenbau neue Möglichkeiten brachte und sein Anwendungsgebiet stark erweiterte, so daß heute speedy ninety % aller Brücken in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland mit Spannbeton gebaut wer­ den. Die Anforderungen des modernen Straßenverkehrs bedingten nicht nur den Bau vieler Brücken sondern auch vielgestaltiger Brücken für Kurven, für schiefwinklige Kreuzungen, für trompe­ tenartige Verbreiterungen usw. Die Brücken müssen sich heute den Verkehrsbedingungen un­ terordnen. Dadurch entstanden statische und konstruktive Probleme, deren Lösung durch Bei­ träge vieler schöpferischer Brückeningenieure heute ausgereift ist und hier dargestellt wird. In diesem Band werden vorwiegend die Überlegungen behandelt, die beim Entwurf einer Brücke hinsichtlich der Wahl der Spannweiten,des Trägersystems, des Querschnittes, der Bauhöhe, der Stützung und Lagerung angestellt werden müssen, um zu einer günstigen Lösung zu kom­ males. Die heutigen Bauverfahren werden beschrieben, weil sie starken Einfluß auf den Ent­ wurf haben. Bewußt wird hier auf die statische Berechnung nicht eingegangen, weil diese im Lehrfach Baustatik geboten wird. Für die statische Lösung besonderer Brückenprobleme wird auf geeignete neuzeitliche Veröffentlichungen verwiesen. Die Bemessung der Querschnit­ te kann auch für Brücken mit den in den Teilen 1 bis five vermittelten Methoden durchgeführt werden.
