Shigley’s Mechanical Engineering Design – Richard G. Budynas and Keith J. Nisbett
Vehicle Chassis Engineering
Race Car Vehicle Dynamics – William F. Milliken & Douglas L. Milliken
¬ The book is packed with illustrations, case studies and analysis spanning decades of development. — The authors strike a good balance between hard theoretical analysis and the softer, easy reading practical notes on vehicle set-up. — A comprehensive resource of race car vehicle dynamics.
¬ First published in 1983, this renowned practical book still remains essential reading for anyone designing and building competition cars of all types, from rally and hillclimb cars through to Formula 750 and, now historic Formula 1.
¬ A rare insight into the design, technology and engineering of a modern F1 car as well as the inner workings of Red Bull Racing. — Each section has plenty of colour photographs and diagrams showing the car from many angles with basic description of the technology behind each part.
Advanced Engine Technology – Heinz Heisler
¬ Within grassroots motorsport, this book is considered one of the best references available to the enthusiast engine builder. — It is written and illustrated in a way that is highly accessible to the amateur, yet outlines principles that will prove valuable to professionals in high-end motorsport.
¬ Aimed at the enthusiast engine tuner and race engine builder, this book is highly recommended for anybody playing with any form of forced induction. — From theory through to building a robust engine, all the key aspects of supercharging and turbocharging are explained very well.
¬ This book guides the reader through the various modifications that can be made to vastly improve usable power output and mechanical reliability from a two-stroke. — Good info on engine operation, carburation, ignition, cylinders, porting, reed and rotary valves, exhaust systems, cooling, lubrication, dyno tuning and gearing.
A complete, accessible description of the working and underlying principles of the gas turbine. Full colour diagrams, cutaways and photographs throughout. Written by RR specialists in all the respective fields.
Rolls-Royce Merlin – Owner’s Workshop Manual – Ian Craighead
This is a story of the iconic Rolls-Royce Merlin aero engine. It was one of the most successful aircraft engines of the Second World War period and is broadly known as the great grandfather of modern high performance piston engines.
The book covers the IEng syllabus, first and second year engineering degree courses. The Online Personal Tutor guides students through exercises in the same step-by-step fashion as the book, with hundreds of full workings to questions.
Applied Thermodynamics for Engineering Technologists is a complete introduction to thermodynamics principles. It is aimed at degree level students on classical engineering science courses. Emphasis is placed on the application of theory to real processes.
A complete engineering text and resource for students looking for a fundamental understanding of materials properties and selection for engineering applications.
This is a well established guide for practicing engineers who need to produce engineering drawings and annotated 3D models that comply with the latest BSI and ISO standards of technical product specifications and documentation.
Written for Mechanical Design Engineers, Draftsmen, Workshop & Inspection Staff, Technicians, Students and anyone involved in the Engineering Product supply chain who needs to understand manufacturing drawings to ISO1101:2004 (BS8888), international G,D & T standards.
