This book presents new methods of numerical modelling of tube heat exchangers, which can be used to perform design and operation calculations of exchangers characterized by a complex flow system. It also proposes new heat transfer correlations for laminar, transition and turbulent flows. A large part of the book is devoted to experimental testing of heat exchangers, and methods for assessing the indirect measurement uncertainty are presented. Further, it describes a new method for parallel determination of the Nusselt number correlations on both sides of the tube walls based on the nonlinear least squares method and presents the application of computational fluid dynamic (CFD) modeling to determine the air-side Nusselt number correlations. Lastly, it develops a control system based on the mathematical model of the car radiator and compares this with the digital proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller. The book is intended for students, academics and researchers, as well as for designers and manufacturers of heat exchangers.

The objective of this practical oil and gas piping handbook is to facilitate project management teams of oil and gas piping related construction projects to understand the key requirements of the discipline and to equip them with the necessary knowledge and protocol. It provides a comprehensive coverage on all the practical aspects of piping related material sourcing, fabrication essentials, welding related items, NDT activities, erection of pipes, pre-commissioning, commissioning, post-commissioning, project management and importance of ISO Management systems in oil and gas piping projects. This handbook assists contractors in ensuring the right understanding and application of protocols in the project. One of the key assets of this handbook is that the technical information and the format provided are practically from real time oil and gas piping projects; hence, the application of this information is expected to enhance the credibility of the contractors in the eyes of the clients and to some extent, simplify the existing operations. Another important highlight is that it holistically covers the stages from the raw material to project completion to handover and beyond. This will help the oil and gas piping contractors to train their project management staff to follow the best practices in the oil and gas industry. Furthermore, this piping handbook provides an important indication of the important project-related factors (hard factors) and organizational-related factors (soft factors) to achieve the desired project performance dimensions, such as timely completion, cost control, acceptable quality, safe execution and financial performance. Lastly, the role of ISO management systems, such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 in construction projects is widely known across the industry; however, oil and gas specific ISO quality management systems, such as ISO 29001, and project specific management systems, such as ISO 21500, are not widely known in the industry, which are explained in detail in this handbook for the benefit of the oil and gas construction organizations. Features: Covering the stages from the raw material to project completion, to handover and beyond Providing practical guidelines to oil and gas piping contractors for training purposes and best practices in the oil and gas industry Emphasizing project-related factors (hard factors) and organizational-related factors (soft factors) with a view to achieve the desired project performance Highlighting the roles of ISO management systems in oil and gas projects.

Apple, Audi, Braun oder Samsung machen es vor: Gutes Design ist heute eine kritische Voraussetzung für erfolgreiche Produkte. Dieser Klassiker beschreibt die fundamentalen Prinzipien, um Dinge des täglichen Gebrauchs umzuwandeln in unterhaltsame und zufriedenstellende Produkte. Don Norman fordert ein Zusammenspiel von Mensch und Technologie mit dem Ziel, dass Designer und Produktentwickler die Bedürfnisse, Fähigkeiten und Handlungsweisen der Nutzer in den Vordergrund stellen und Designs an diesen angepasst werden. The Design of Everyday Things ist eine informative und spannende Einführung für Designer, Marketer, Produktentwickler und für alle an gutem Design interessierten Menschen. Zum Autor Don Norman ist emeritierter Professor für Kognitionswissenschaften. Er lehrte an der University of California in San Diego und der Northwest University in Illinois. Mitte der Neunzigerjahre leitete Don Norman die Advanced Technology Group bei Apple. Dort prägte er den Begriff der User Experience, um über die reine Benutzbarkeit hinaus eine ganzheitliche Erfahrung der Anwender im Umgang mit Technik in den Vordergrund zu stellen. Norman ist Mitbegründer der Beratungsfirma Nielsen Norman Group und hat unter anderem Autohersteller von BMW bis Toyota beraten. „Keiner kommt an Don Norman vorbei, wenn es um Fragen zu einem Design geht, das sich am Menschen orientiert.“ Brand Eins 7/2013 „Design ist einer der wichtigsten Wettbewerbsvorteile. Dieses Buch macht Spaß zu lesen und ist von größter Bedeutung.” Tom Peters, Co-Autor von „Auf der Suche nach Spitzenleistungen“

Fluid mechanics is a core component of many undergraduate engineering courses. It is essential for both students and lecturers to have a comprehensive, highly illustrated textbook, full of exercises, problems and practical applications to guide them through their study and teaching. Engineering Fluid Mechanics By William P. Grabel is that book The ISE version of this comprehensive text is especially priced for the student market and is an essential textbook for undergraduates (particularly those on mechanical and civil engineering courses) designed to emphasis the physical aspects of fluid mechanics and to develop the analytical skills and attitudes of the engineering student. Example problems follow most of the theory to ensure that students easily grasp the calculations, step by step processes outline the procedure used, so as to improve the students' problem solving skills. An Appendix is included to present some of the more general considerations involved in the design process. The author also links fluid mechanics to other core engineering courses an undergraduate must take (heat transfer, thermodynamics, mechanics of materials, statistics and dynamics) wherever possible, to build on previously learned knowledge.

A fully comprehensive guide to thermal systems designcovering fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, heat transfer andthermodynamic power cycles Bridging the gap between the fundamental concepts of fluidmechanics, heat transfer and thermodynamics, and the practicaldesign of thermo-fluids components and systems, this textbookfocuses on the design of internal fluid flow systems, coiled heatexchangers and performance analysis of power plant systems. Thetopics are arranged so that each builds upon the previous chapterto convey to the reader that topics are not stand-alone itemsduring the design process, and that they all must come together toproduce a successful design. Because the complete design or modification of modern equipmentand systems requires knowledge of current industry practices, theauthors highlight the use of manufacturer’s catalogs toselect equipment, and practical examples are included throughout togive readers an exhaustive illustration of the fundamental aspectsof the design process. Key Features: Demonstrates how industrial equipment and systems are designed,covering the underlying theory and practical application ofthermo-fluid system design Practical rules-of-thumb are included in the text as‘Practical Notes’ to underline their importance incurrent practice and provide additional information Includes an instructor’s manual hosted on thebook’s companion website
