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

Whether you’re interested in becoming a handyman or developing artisanal woodworking skills, the place to begin is by learning the fundamentals of using basic workshop tools correctly. The place to find out how is right here. Make: Tools is shop class in a book. Consumer-level 3D printers and CNC machines are opening up new possibilities for makers. But there will always be a need for traditional workshop skills and tools. Charles Platt's Make: Tools applies the same approach to its subject matter as his bestselling Make: Electronics -- in-depth explanations and hands-on projects that gradually increase in level of challenge. Illustrated in full color with hundreds of photographs and line drawings, the book serves as a perfect introduction to workshop tools and materials for young adults and adults alike. Platt focuses on basic hands tools and assumes no prior experience or knowledge on the part of the reader. The projects all result in fun games, toys, and puzzles. The book serves as both a hands-on tutorial a reference that will be returned to again and again.

Everyone knows the term DNA. It is the essence of our being. It determines who we are and what we pass on to our children. Mention the ribosome, on the other hand, and you will usually be met with blank faces, even from scientists. And yet without the ribosome, nothing lives. For if DNA is data then it can’t go anywhere, or do anything, without a machine to process it. Unlocking the secrets of this gene-reading molecule was once among the most fundamental problems in molecular biology... Nobel Prize winner Venki Ramakrishnan tells the story of the race to determine the structure of the ribosome and so resolve an ancient mystery at the heart of life itself. Illuminating, persuasive and compelling, Gene Machine not only reveals a great discovery but offers a fascinating insight into what it is like to work at the cutting edge of modern science amid the attending competition, politics and larger-than-life personalities.

The Unwritten Laws of Engineering

Some years ago the author became very much impressed with the fact, which can be observed in any engineering organization, that the chief obstacles to the success of individual engineers or of the group comprising a unit were of a personal and administrative rather than a technical nature. It was apparent that both the author and his associates were getting into much more trouble by violating the unwritten laws of professional conduct than by committing technical sins against the well-documented laws of science. Since the former appeared to be indeed unwritten at that time, as regards any adequate and convenient text, the following “laws” were originally formulated and collected into a sort of scrapbook, to provide a set of “house rules,” or a professional code, for a design-engineering section of a large manufacturing organization. Although they are admittedly fragmentary and incomplete, they are offered here for whatever they may be worth to younger men just starting their careers, and to older men who know these things perfectly well but who all too often fail to apply them in practice. Just a few points should be emphasized: None of these “laws” is theoretical or imaginary, and however obvious and trite they may appear, their repeated violation is responsible for much of the frustration and embarrassment to which engineers everywhere arc liable. In fact this paper is primarily a record, derived from direct observation over a period of seventeen years, of the experience of four engineering departments, three of them newly organized and struggling to establish themselves by the trial-and-error method. It has, however, been supplemented and confirmed by the experience of others as gathered from numerous discussions, lectures, and the literature, so that it most emphatically does not reflect the unique experience or characteristics of any one organization. Furthermore, many of these rules are generalizations to which exceptions will occur in special circumstances. There is no thought of urging a slavish adherence to rules and red tape, for there is no substitute for judgment, and at times vigorous individual initiative is needed to cut through formalities in an emergency. But in many respects these laws are like the basic laws of society; they cannot be violated too often with impunity, notwithstanding striking exceptions in individual cases.

Will your next doctor be a human being—or a machine? Will you have a choice? If you do, what should you know before making it?This book introduces the reader to the pitfalls and promises of artificial intelligence (AI) in its modern incarnation and the growing trend of systems to "reach off the Web" into the real world. The convergence of AI, social networking, and modern computing is creating an historic inflection point in the partnership between human beings and machines with potentially profound impacts on the future not only of computing but of our world and species.AI experts and researchers James Hendler—co-originator of the Semantic Web (Web 3.0)—and Alice Mulvehill—developer of AI-based operational systems for DARPA, the Air Force, and NASA—explore the social implications of AI systems in the context of a close examination of the technologies that make them possible. The authors critically evaluate the utopian claims and dystopian counterclaims of AI prognosticators. Social Machines: The Coming Collision of Artificial Intelligence, Social Networking, and Humanity is your richly illustrated field guide to the future of your machine-mediated relationships with other human beings and with increasingly intelligent machines. What Readers Will Learn What the concept of a social machine is and how the activities of non-programmers are contributing to machine intelligence How modern artificial intelligence technologies, such as Watson, are evolving and how they process knowledge from both carefully produced information (such as Wikipedia and journal articles) and from big data collections The fundamentals of neuromorphic computing, knowledge graph search, and linked data, as well as the basic technology concepts that underlie networking applications such as Facebook and Twitter How the change in attitudes towards cooperative work on the Web, especially in the younger demographic, is critical to the future of Web applications Who This Book Is ForGeneral readers and technically engaged developers, entrepreneurs, and technologists interested in the threats and promises of the accelerating convergence of artificial intelligence with social networks and mobile web technologies.
