Thorough, clear, and concise, this Navy training manual leaves nothing to be desired in its presentation. Prepared with ease-of-use and pragmatism in mind, Basic Machines and How They Work is a one-stop resource on the function and design of a huge range of mechanical devices from simple levers to combustion engines and powertrains. With the Echo Point Books & Media 1994 Complete Edition you are also privy to valuable practice materials to test your understanding. Logically organized from simplest to most complicated, Basic Machines opens with a discussion of the lever. Moving on to discussions of the block and tackle (pulleys and hoists), wheel and axle, the inclined plane and the wedge, the screw, and different types of gears (simple, spur, bevel, herringbone, spiral, worm, etc.). Next comes a chapter on the concept of work and how work, friction, and efficiency can be measured. Moving on, following chapters discussions of power, force, and pressure, detailing the function of scales, balances, gauges and barometers. Hydrostatic and hydraulic machines (such as hydraulic braking systems) are covered in detail before turning to machine elements (bearings and springs), basic mechanisms (gear differential, couplings, cams, clutches), and the internal combustion engine. Including more than 200 diagrams, drawings, and cross-sections that illuminate the inner-workings of the machines at hand, Basic Machines and How They Work is written with clear, simple language so that anyone with even the slightest mechanical inclination can glean every ounce of wisdom from its pages. Originally written as a text for use in U.S. Naval Training Schools, this book is perfect for mechanical engineering students of any kind and any layman or homeowner who desires a basic knowledge of mechanics.

This revised edition of an extremely clear Navy Training Manual leaves nothing to be desired in its presentation. Thorough in its coverage of basic theory, from the lever and inclined plane to internal combustion engines and power trains, it requires nothing more than an understanding of the most elementary mathematics. Beginning with the simplest of machines -- the lever -- the text proceeds to discussions of the block and tackle (pulleys and hoists), wheel and axle, the inclined plane and the wedge, the screw, and different types of gears (simple, spur, bevel, herringbone, spiral, worm, etc.). A chapter on the concept of work discusses the measurement of work, friction, and efficiency; this is followed by investigations of power, force, and pressure, with explanations of the uses of scales, balances, gauges, and barometers. The fundamentals of hydrostatic and hydraulic machines (such as the hydraulic braking system and the hydraulic press) are discussed in detail. The remaining chapters cover machine elements (bearings and springs), basic mechanisms (gear differential, couplings, cams, clutches), the internal combustion engine and power trains (including explanations of various transmission systems -- synchromesh, auxiliary, etc.). Every concept is clearly defined, and discussions always build easily from elementary theory to specific applications familiar to anyone with the slightest interest in mechanics. Important concepts, machine components, and techniques are clearly illustrated in more than 200 diagrams, drawings, and cross-sections that reveal inner workings -- all of these help to clarify even further an already clear and well-organized presentation. Although it was originally designed for use in U.S. Naval Training Schools, this book can be used to great advantage as a basic text in mechanical engineering in standard technical schools, and it will be immensely valuable even to lay readers who desire a basic knowledge of mechanics.

A smooth-running tractor or other basic piece of farm equipment can be the key to a successful farm, yet many newcomers enter farming with no knowledge of how an engine works, how to maintain and fix a tractor or implement so it will last a lifetime, or how to maximize operator safety. This handy, practical guide can save those farmers thousands of dollars in repairs and lost productivity.

Media-didactics have recently become more firmly grounded on cognitive theory, with an increasing concern for the internal processes of knowledge representation and acquisition. With this cognitive aspect in mind, an international group of researchers held a meeting in Tübingen, Federal Republic of Germany, to present and discuss the theoretical approaches to and empirical investigations of knowledge acquisition from text and pictures. This volume contains the revised contributions resulting from that meeting.
