Ford Tractor Conversions: The Story of County, DOE, by Stuart Gibbard

By Stuart Gibbard

This illustrated paintings covers the tales of 5 British engineering businesses that produced winning levels of agricultural, earthmoving or building equipment. County, Doe, Chaseside, Muir-Hill, Matbro and Bray all made broad use of the Ford tractor skid unit as a foundation for his or her machines they usually pioneered the advance of the four-wheel force agricultural tractor in Britain. Stuart Gibbard supplies information of the entire major versions and machines of those brands. He chronicles the fortunes of the corporations from the start of the 20 th century to the current day and discusses some of the personalities involved.

Fourier Acoustics: Sound Radiation and Nearfield Acoustical by Earl G. Williams

By Earl G. Williams

meant a either a textbook and a reference, Fourier Acoustics develops the speculation of sound radiation uniquely from the point of view of Fourier research. This robust viewpoint of sound radiation offers the reader with a entire and useful knowing so one can permit her or him to diagnose and clear up sound and vibration difficulties within the twenty first Century. because of this angle, Fourier Acoustics is ready to current completely and easily, for the 1st time in publication shape, the idea of nearfield acoustical holography, a massive process which has revolutionised the size of sound. depending little on fabric outdoor the e-book, Fourier Acoustics should be valuable as a graduate point textual content in addition to a reference for researchers in academia and industry.

  • The physics of wave propogation and sound vibration in homogeneous media
  • Acoustics, corresponding to radiation of sound, and radiation from vibrating surfaces
  • Inverse difficulties, equivalent to the idea of nearfield acoustical holography
  • Mathematics of specialised capabilities, corresponding to round harmonics

Das Buch der Klänge: Eine Reise zu den akustischen Wundern by Cox,Wissmann,Jorunn Wissmann

By Cox,Wissmann,Jorunn Wissmann

Mit dem Buch der Klänge führt uns der britische Wissenschaftler Trevor Cox in verborgene Hörwelten. Es weckt in uns das Verlangen, in einem Alltag, in dem das Visuelle so sehr dominiert, doch einmal genauer hinzuhören – und unsere Ohren für das wunderbare Klangdurcheinander um uns herum zu öffnen.Als Fachmann für technische Akustik hat sich Trevor Cox lange damit beschäftigt, unerwünschte Geräusche verschwinden zu lassen, ob Echos in Konzertsälen oder Lärm in Klassenzimmern. Eines Tages aber verschaffte ihm ein Ausflug in die Londoner Kanalisation ein erstaunliches Hörerlebnis – und die Erkenntnis: Statt seltsame Geräusche abzustellen, sollten wir die seltsamsten und bizarrsten akustischen Effekte zu schätzen lernen: als die Klangwunder unserer Erde.Das Buch der Klänge beschreibt seine Suche nach diesen Klangwundern. In der Mojave-Wüste besucht Cox singende Dünen. In Frankreich entdeckt er ein Echo, das zu Scherzen aufgelegt ist. In Kalifornien fährt er eine „singende“ Straße entlang, die die Ouvertüre zu Wilhelm inform erklingen lässt (wenn auch ziemlich schief). Und eine Entdeckung ist so beeindruckend, dass sie einen Eintrag ins Guinness-Buch der Rekorde verdient hat.
