An Introduction to Mechanical Engineering is an essential text for all first-year undergraduate students as well as those studying for foundation degrees and HNDs. The text gives a thorough grounding in the following core engineering topics: thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, dynamics, electricals and electronics, and materials science. As well as mechanical engineers, the text will be highly relevant to civil, automotive, aeronautical/aerospace and general engineering students. The text is written by an experienced team of first-year lecturers at the internationally renowned University of Nottingham. The material in this book has full student and lecturer support on an accompanying website at http://cw.tandf.co.uk/mechanicalengineering/, which includes: worked examples of exam-style questions multiple-choice self-assessment revision guides.

The definitive book on the science of grease lubrication forroller and needle bearings in industrial and vehicleengineering. Grease Lubrication in Rolling Bearings provides anoverview of the existing knowledge on the various aspects of greaselubrication (including lubrication systems) and the state of theart models that exist today. The book reviews the physical andchemical aspects of grease lubrication, primarily directed towardslubrication of rolling bearings. The first part of the book covers grease composition, propertiesand rheology, including thermal and dynamics properties. Laterchapters cover the dynamics of greased bearings, including greaselife, bearing life, reliability and testing. The final chaptercovers lubrications systems – the systems that deliver greaseto the components requiring lubrication. Grease Lubrication in Rolling Bearings: Describes the underlying physical and chemical properties ofgrease. Discusses the effect of load, speed, temperature, bearinggeometry, bearing materials and grease type on bearing wear. Covers both bearing and grease performance, includingthermo-mechanical ageing and testing methodologies. It is intended for researchers and engineers in thepetro-chemical and bearing industry, industries related to this(e.g. wind turbine industry, automotive industry) and forapplication engineers. It will also be of interest for teaching inpost-graduate courses.

Technology is taking us to a world where myriads of heavily networked devices interact with the physical world in multiple ways and at multiple scales, from the global Internet down to micro and nano devices. Many of these devices are highly mobile and must adapt to the surrounding environment in a totally unsupervised way. A fundamental research challenge is the design of robust decentralized computing systems that are capable of operating under changing environments and noisy input, and yet exhibit the desired behavior and response time, under constraints such as energy consumption, size, and processing power. Biological systems are able to handle many of these challenges with an elegance and efficiency still far beyond current human artifacts. The goal is to obtain methods on how to engineer technical systems, which have similar high stability and efficiency. With this book, we present a comprehensive overview of the most promising research directions in the area of bio-inspired computing. According to the broad spectrum addressed by the different book chapters, a rich variety of biological principles and their application to ICT systems are presented.
