Der schnellaufende Verbrennungsmotor

Author: Harry R. Ricardo
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783662114544
Release Date: 2013-12-19
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Der Verfasser der "High-Speed Internal-Combustion Engine" ist durch seine Arbeiten auf dem Gebiet der schnellaufenden Verbren nungskraftmaschine weit über die Grenzen seines Landes hinaus be kannt geworden, gilt doch Sir HARRY RICARDO heute in der inter nationalen Fachwelt als eine der ersten Autoritäten auf diesem Son dergebiet. Seine Arbeiten reichen bis in die Zeit vor dem ersten Welt krieg zurück, als er in einer eigenen kleinen Werkstatt an einem selbst gebauten Motor die Vorgänge im Brennraum zu studieren begann, behindert durch die Unvollkommenheit der Versuchseinrichtungen und durch den Mangel am Wichtigsten, was zu solchen Versuchen gehört, am Geld. Aber er ließ sich nicht entmutigen und hatte das Glück, frühzeitig die finanzielle Hilfe weitsichtiger Förderer seiner Arbeiten zu finden, von denen er den Namen des Sir ROBERT WALEY COHEN von der Asiatic Petroleum Co. und die SHELL-Gruppe erwähnt, die es ihm in großzügiger Weise ermöglichteu, jenes Laboratorium in Shoreham-on-Sea. einzurichten, das noch heute unter seiner Leitung steht. Das hier investierte Kapital hat reiche Zinsen getragen, nicht nur für die englische Motoren-Industrie, sondern auch für die aller anderen Länder, soweit sie Verbrennungskraftmaschinen bauen, denn RICARDOS großes Verdienst ist, daß er in zahlreichen Veröffentlichun gen die Fachwelt an den Ergebnissen seiner Forschungen hat teil nehmen lassen. RWARDOS Buch, von dem heute die vierte Auflage vorliegt, erschien erstmalig im Jahre 1923 und wurde damals sogleich ins Deutsche übersetzt.

Mechanische Schwingungen

Author: Jacob P. DenHartog
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783662124444
Release Date: 2013-07-02
Genre: Science

Die amerikanische Ausgabe dieses Buches erschien 1947 in der dritten, nicht unwesentlich erweiterten Auflage. Der Verfasser erwähnt in seinem Vorwort, daß es ursprünglich aus dem Text von Vorlesungen an der Design School der W estinghouse Company entstand und zu nächst für den Unterrichtsgebrauch an der Harvard Engineering School herausgegeben wurde. In die Neuauflage wurden neue Veröffentlichungen und eigene Erfahrungen eingearbeitet. Im Vorwort der deutschen Erstauflage (1936) wurde darauf hin gewiesen, daß das vorliegende Buch eine glückliche, dem ingenieur mäßigen Denken entsprechende Anschaulichkeit hat. Der Verfasser ver meidet es, lediglich Gebrauchsanweisungen für Rechenvorschriften zu geben; andererseits verzichtet er auf die Ausarbeitung der vollstän digen, strengen Theorie. Er versteht es, dem Leser die wesentlichen Zusammenhänge auch verwickelter Erscheinungen plausibel zu machen. So vermittelt die Darstellung nicht einen höheren theoreti schen Überblick, sondern leitet den Leser mit einfacher mathematischer oder anschaulicher mechanischer Begründung auf einen Weg, der in praktischen Schwingungsfragen zur zahlenmäßigen Lösung, mindestens aber zu einer guten Annäherung der "exakten" Lösung führt. Eine Fülle von Beispielen und Aufgaben regt dazu an, die Beherrschung der dargelegten Rechenverfahren zu erproben und zu vertiefen. Aus diesen Gründen erfolgte die Übersetzung in die deutsche Sprache. Inzwischen ist die amerikanische Ausgabe mit großem Erfolg im Hochschulunterricht eingesetzt worden. Den deutschen Leser inter essiert vielleicht der Hinweis, daß der Hochschulunterricht in Amerika von der europäischen Art sehr verschieden ist. Die Vorlesungen werden nach einem bestimmten "Textbuch" gelesen.
