Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicle Technologies for by Richard Folkson

By Richard Folkson

Most autos run on fossil fuels, and this provides an incredible emissions challenge as call for for gasoline maintains to extend. Alternative Fuels and complex automobile applied sciences gives an summary of key advancements in complicated fuels and automobile applied sciences to enhance the strength potency and environmental effect of the automobile zone.

Part I considers the function of other fuels comparable to electrical energy, alcohol, and hydrogen gasoline cells, in addition to complex ingredients and oils, in environmentally sustainable delivery. half II explores equipment of revising engine and car layout to enhance environmental functionality and gasoline economic climate. It includes chapters on advancements in layout, aerodynamics, combustion, and transmission. ultimately, half III outlines advancements in electrical and hybrid automobile applied sciences, and gives an summary of the advantages and obstacles of those autos by way of their environmental influence, protection, fee, and layout practicalities.

Alternative Fuels and complicated car applied sciences is a typical reference for execs, engineers, and researchers within the automobile quarter, in addition to automobile brands, gasoline approach builders, and teachers with an curiosity during this field.

  • Provides a broad-ranging assessment of modern learn into complicated fuels and car applied sciences that would be instrumental in bettering the power potency and environmental influence of the automobile sector
  • Reviews the advance of different fuels, extra effective engines, and powertrain applied sciences, in addition to hybrid and electrical car technologies

Tongue Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine by Giovanni Maciocia

By Giovanni Maciocia

Exam of the tongue, just like the pulse, is among the central diagnostic equipment in conventional chinese language drugs. This book--newly revised in 1995--systematically describes all of the fundamental features of the tongue (body colour, form and coating) and their importance within the medical institution. It strains the historic improvement of tongue prognosis and its dating to externally- shriveled problems and the 8 principals.

Featured during this revised version are fifty nine colour plates and accompanying case histories from the author's personal perform. different elements of tongue analysis newly defined during this version comprise the combination of tongue and pulse prognosis; using the tongue in diagnosing emotional difficulties; tongue analysis and natural remedy; the tongue in diagnosis; and certain concerns concerning tongue prognosis in kids.

Alternative Energy by Neil Schlager, Jayne Weisblatt

By Neil Schlager, Jayne Weisblatt

This three-volume set introduces researchers to concerns surrounding either present power resources and substitute strength ideas. whereas there's major dialogue of the non-renewable assets now used to satisfy the vast majority of the world's strength wishes (oil, coal and average gas), the first concentration of the set is on more moderen innovations to satisfy the ever-growing call for. those innovations contain wind and solar power, gasoline cells, hydropower, geothermal strength and biomass strength. moreover, extra theoretical resources also are explored, together with chilly fusion, 0 element power and common forces. Entries talk about the technology in the back of the strength resource, amazing scientists and medical discoveries, present examples of use, and the problems, demanding situations and stumbling blocks to large-scale use. prepared alphabetically by way of access identify.
