As former England striker and television pundit Jimmy Greaves famously said, football is 'a funny old game'. In A Load of Balls: Football's Funny Side, John Scally confirms the truth of his statement by providing a potpourri of double entendres, timeless quips and amusing anecdotes from the tongues of football's elite. Hundreds of silly stories and priceless nuggets have been sourced to recreate the unique excitement, drama and unpredictability of football in the words of the sport's practitioners. The result is a wry, quirky and sometimes outlandish catalogue of comic creations. For lovers of the absurd, outrageous and totally bizarre, this selection of stories and quotes will amuse and delight. Packed with priceless gaffes from the likes of David Beckham ('My parents have been there for me since I was about seven'), Bobby Robson ('We didn't underestimate them; they were just a lot better than we thought') and Paul Gascoigne ('I've never made any predictions about anything and I never will'), this hilarious collection is guaranteed to tickle the funny bone of even the most casual sports fan.

Author: Lester J. Nypan
Optimized series-hybrid fluid-film ball bearings are described and operating characteristics are calculated and discussed. It is predicted that a series-hybrid bearing may be constructed which will reduce ball-bearing speed by 30 percent thereby increasing bearing fatigue life by factors of up to 5.9. Flow rates required are less than 9 kilograms per minute (20 lb/min).

Experiments were performed with 40-mm-bore ball bearings operating at shaft speeds to 35 000 rpm and thrust loads to 400lbf (1780 N) in 60 degree R (33K) hydrogen gas. The minimum coolant flow rate equation developed for bearings equipped with this retainer material was similar to the equation determined in a previous study for bearings with a bronze-filled polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) retainer. Retainer wear rate was very low; some inner-race ball-track wear was evident for bearings that had been run for more than 7 hours.

It leads the reader through the entire solution process, from the original PDE, through the discretization stage, to the numerical solution of the resulting algebraic system. The well-debugged and tested code segments implement the numerical methods efficiently and transparently. Basic and advanced numerical methods are introduced and implemented easily and efficiently in a unified object-oriented approach.
The advantages and disadvantages of today's available linear ball and roller bearings are discussed in the viewpoint of: (a) economy, (b) load capacity.

Advances in Machine Tool Design and Research 1969 focuses on the processes, methodologies, and techniques in the design of machine tools. The book contains the proceedings of the 10th International M.T.D.R. Conference held at the University of Manchester in September 1969. The selection first discusses examples and problems in the implementation of modern design features on large machine tools and development of numerically controlled conventional turning machines. The book reviews the theory and practice of fluid dampers in machine tools, including eccentricity of cylindrical film dampers, border effect, and vapor and gas pressure. The text also discusses tool life vibrations of grinding wheels as a function of vibration amplitude; thermal deformations of gear-cutting machines; thermal behavior of machine tools; and the effects of thermal deformation on the cylindrical accuracy in grinding process. The book also takes a look at the trends in manufacturing systems concepts and technical criteria to be used when purchasing machine tools. The selection is a dependable reference for readers interested in machine tool design.
