## Fundamentals of Structural Geology

David D. Pollard

Preference :

Fundamentals of Structural Geology provides a new framework for the investigation of geological structures by integrating field mapping and mechanical analysis. It emphasizes the observational data, modern mapping technology, principles of continuum mechanics, and the mathematical and computational skills, necessary to map, describe, model, and explain deformation in the Earth’s lithosphere quantitatively. Assuming a basic knowledge of physical geology, introductory calculus, and physics, this advanced textbook builds on more traditional courses that emphasize descriptive terminology, geometric techniques, and kinematics. In a significant departure from conventional textbooks on the subject, differential geometry is introduced and applied to quantify descriptions of geological structures. Differential geometry integrates the spatial information conventionally found on maps with orientation data from stereograms to provide reproducible descriptions of geological structures.

Content :
• Motivations and opportunities
• Structural mapping techniques and tools
• Characterizing structures using differential geometry
• Physical quantities, fields, dimensions, and scaling
• Deformation and flow
• Force, traction, and stress

## Handbook of Machining and Metalworking Calculations

Ronald A. Walsh

Preference :

This handbook contains most of the basic and advanced calculation procedures required for machining and metalworking applications. This calculation procedure should be performed on a modern pocket calculator in order to save time and reduce or eliminate errors while improving accuracy. Correct bracketing procedures are required when entering equations into the pocket calculator, and it is for this reason that I recommend the selection of a calculator that shows all entered data on the calculator display and that can be scrolled. That type of calculator will allow you to scroll or review the entered equation and check for proper bracketing sequences, prior to pressing “ENTER” or =. If the bracketing sequences of an entered equation are incorrect, the calculator will indicate “Syntax error,” or give an incorrect solution to the problem. Examples of proper bracketing for entering equations in the pocket calculator are shown in Chap. 1 and in Chap. 11, where the complex four-bar linkage is analyzed and explained.

Content :
• 1 Mathematics For Machinists And Metalworkers
• 2 Mensuration Of Plane And Solid Figures
• 3 Layout Procedures For Geometric Figures
• 4 Measurement And Calculation Procedures For Machinists
• 5 Formulas And Calculations For Machining Operations
• 6 Formulas For Sheet Metal Layout And Fabrication

## The Analysis of Irregular Shaped Structures Diaphragms and Shear Walls

Robert Rice

Preference :

Residential and commercial buildings have become more complex than structures built only a few decades ago. Horizontal and vertical offsets in the diaphragms, multiple reentrant corners, multiple irregularities, and fewer vertical lateral- force-resisting elements are commonplace. The structural configurations of many modern buildings require very complex lateral load paths. Most texts and publications available today only address simple rectangular diaphragms and shear walls. Methods of analysis for these simpler diaphragms and shear walls do not easily adapt to complex diaphragms and shear wall layouts in irregular shaped structures.

Content :
• 1 Code Sections and Analysis
• 2 Diaphragm Basics
• 3 Diaphragms With End Horizontal Offsets
• 4 Diaphragms With Intermediate Offsets
• 5 Diaphragms With Openings
• 6 Open Front and Cantilever Diaphragms

## CNC Machining Handbook: Building, Programming, and Implementation

Alan Overby

Preference :

Using CNC, whether on a professional or hobbyist level, is not only an exciting process to be involved in but is also the direction manufacturing is heading. There are a great many facets and stages involved in the end-to-end process of understanding and implementing CNC, and, although there have been several books published on specific aspects or topics (such as G-code programming, building a CNC machine, etc.), there have been no books written that guide the reader through the overall process, that is, until now. It is not the intent of this book to replace any previously written information on this topic nor to delve into any particular area. However, by the time readers finish reading this book, they will have a solid understanding of the entire CNC process from a top-down end-to-end perspective.

Content :

## Analysis of Structures on Elastic Foundations

Tsudik, Edward

Preference :

Analysis of structures and structural elements, supported on soil, requires the knowledge of the properties of the structure, as well as the properties of the soil. While properties of structural materials of the foundation and superstructure are usually well known, obtaining the soil’s properties and, especially, evaluating the soil’s behavior under applied loads, is very difficult. Various soils react differently to applied loads and, like any bearing material, produce under the same load's different settlements and different stresses. A wide variety of soil and its properties as well as various complex soil conditions require soil investigation and testing in each case. Analysis of beams, plates, walls, frames, and other structures supported on elastic foundations is usually performed by modeling the soil; in other words, by replacing the soil with material that behaves under applied loads like the given real soil.

Content :
• Soils and Soil Models
• Analytical Methods of Analysis of Finite Beams on Winkler Foundation
• Simplified Analysis of Beams and Frames on Winkler Foundation
• Analysis of Beams on Elastic Half-Space

## Design of Buildings for Wind

Emil Simiu

Preference :

For most common types of structures, standard provisions on wind loads are in principle adequate for design purposes. The ASCE 7-10 Standard, among other standards, has incorporated a great deal of wind engineering knowl- edge accumulated within the last half-century. However, because the Standard has been developed by successive accretions, not always smoothly, its previ- ous versions have been perceived by some practitioners as complicated and unwieldy. In an effort to respond to the demand for a clearer document, the ASCE 7-10 version of the Standard has been substantially expanded and revised. However, difficulties remain.

Content :
• 1 Overview

## Practical Electric Motor Handbook

Irving Gottlieb

Preference :

Historians like to assign definite dates to mark the occurrence of significant events. This is not quite so easy to do in science and technology as it is in, says, politics. When one studies the birth and evolution of notable achieve- ments in either theoretical or applied science a great deal of fuzzy logic is encountered in attempts to date the sudden emergence of the event, and more 'originators', inventors, discoverers, and improvers are usually in- involved than given deserved credit. Moreover, there are inevitably earlier workers in the field who laid down the basic intellectual tools for demon- strable ideas and devices.

• Electric-Motor Generalities
• Practical Aspects of Dc Motors
