As a wide-eyed English boy, Brian H. Rowe watched the Battle of Britain unfold in the skies above his native country. The experience sealed his fascination with flying machines and hinted at the importance of aircraft to the future of civilization. In this gripping memoir, the author tells the story of his rise from an unassuming post-World War II engineering apprentice to become president of General Electric Aircraft Engines, the American company whose jet engines helped win the Cold War and make commercial flight affordable for average citizens. This is a personal account replete with engineering anecdotes and hitherto unpublished details about the thinking behind major GE products, including the F404 engines that power the U.S. Navys F/A-18 jets, the F101 engines that were selected for the Air Forces B-1 bombers, and the CFM56 engines that power todays Boeing 737s and Airbus A320s, for instance. There is plenty here to feed the interest of those who have followed the historical competition between GE and its competitors, Pratt & Whitney and Rolls Royce. Later in his career, managerial and strategic challenges became Rowes main focus, and the author gives insight into how he dealt with those as well. Overall, though, this memoir demonstrates the importance of human relationships and ingenuity as the true engine of history.

Rosie may seem quiet during the day, but at night she’s a brilliant inventor of gizmos and gadgets who dreams of becoming a great engineer. When her great-great-aunt Rose (Rosie the Riveter) comes for a visit and mentions her one unfinished goal—to fly—Rosie sets to work building a contraption to make her aunt’s dream come true. But when her contraption doesn’t fly but rather hovers for a moment and then crashes, Rosie deems the invention a failure. On the contrary, Aunt Rose insists that Rosie’s contraption was a raging success: you can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit. From the powerhouse author-illustrator team of Iggy Peck, Architect comes Rosie Revere, Engineer, another charming, witty picture book about believing in yourself and pursuing your passion. Praise for Rosie Revere, Engineer"Comically detailed mixed-media illustrations that keep the mood light and emphasize Rosie’s creativity at every turn."—Publishers Weekly "The detritus of Rosie’s collections is fascinating, from broken dolls and stuffed animals to nails, tools, pencils, old lamps and possibly an erector set. And cheddar-cheese spray." —Kirkus Reviews "This celebration of creativity and perseverance is told through rhyming text, which gives momentum and steady pacing to a story, consistent with the celebration of its heroine, Rosie. She’s an imaginative thinker who hides her light under a bushel (well, really, the bed) after being laughed at for one of her inventions." —Booklist Award 2013 Parents' Choice Award - GOLD 2014 Amelia Bloomer Project List ReadBoston's Best Read Aloud Book

Nuclear Power is the first in this brand-new series and explains in detail how nuclear power works, its costs, benefits as part of the electricity supply system and examines its record. This book covers the debate: Is nuclear power expensive, dangerous and inflexible? Or is it an opportunity to invest in a long-term large-scale electricity source that will help win the battle against climate change?

The engineer's ready reference for mechanical power and heat Mechanical Engineer's Handbook provides the most comprehensive coverage of the entire discipline, with a focus on explanation and analysis. Packaged as a modular approach, these books are designed to be used either individually or as a set, providing engineers with a thorough, detailed, ready reference on topics that may fall outside their scope of expertise. Each book provides discussion and examples as opposed to straight data and calculations, giving readers the immediate background they need while pointing them toward more in-depth information as necessary. Volume 4: Energy and Power covers the essentials of fluids, thermodynamics, entropy, and heat, with chapters dedicated to individual applications such as air heating, cryogenic engineering, indoor environmental control, and more. Readers will find detailed guidance toward fuel sources and their technologies, as well as a general overview of the mechanics of combustion. No single engineer can be a specialist in all areas that they are called on to work in the diverse industries and job functions they occupy. This book gives them a resource for finding the information they need, with a focus on topics related to the productions, transmission, and use of mechanical power and heat. Understand the nature of energy and its proper measurement and analysis Learn how the mechanics of energy apply to furnaces, refrigeration, thermal systems, and more Examine the and pros and cons of petroleum, coal, biofuel, solar, wind, and geothermal power Review the mechanical parts that generate, transmit, and store different types of power, and the applicable guidelines Engineers must frequently refer to data tables, standards, and other list-type references, but this book is different; instead of just providing the answer, it explains why the answer is what it is. Engineers will appreciate this approach, and come to find Volume 4: Energy and Power an invaluable reference.
