    Non-dimensional similarity groups and analytically solvable proximity equations can be used to estimate integral fluid film parameters of elastohydrodynamically lubricated (EHL) contacts. In this contribution, we demonstrate that machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) approaches (support vector machines, Gaussian process regressions, and artificial neural networks) can predict relevant film parameters more efficiently and with higher accuracy and flexibility compared to sophisticated EHL simulations and analytically solvable proximity equations, respectively. For this purpose, we use data from EHL simulations based upon the full-system finite element (FE) solution and a Latin hypercube sampling.

    The book focuses on the fundamental bases of software and hardware. Specific products and tools are mentioned only if they have outstanding characteristics. Again, this is in-line with the ARTIST guidelines: “It seems that fundamental bases are really difficult to acquire during continuous training if they haven’t been initially learned, and we must focus on them” [85]. As a consequence, this book goes beyond teaching embedded system design by programming micro-controllers. The book presents the fundamentals of embedded systems design, which are needed for the design of CPS and IoT systems. With this approach, we would like to make sure that the material taught would not be outdated too soon.

    Synovial fluid is made up of various biomacromolecules, including hyaluronic acid, aggrecans, lubricins, and phosphatidylcholine lipid, which are assembled onto the surface of articular cartilage in a gel state. Among them, brush-like biomacromolecules or assemblies have a vital effect on human joint lubrication. Inspired by this, the combination of brush-like molecular structures and gel-like assembly may be an efficient approach for the synthesis of biomimetic lubricating matters. Learning from the lubrication system of human joints, poly(2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine) (PMPC) brushes grafted poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-co-acrylic acid) (poly(NIPAAm-co-AA)) microgels, abbreviated as MBs-g-MGs, were synthesized as one kind of biomimetic lubricating additives.

    The text builds outward from the basic concepts and definitions of the underlying physics, guiding the reader through thermodynamic properties and introducing the subject of gasses. From there, the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics are explored in some depth. Each Chapter and Section begins with some introductory text, followed by Examples. It is noted that the Solutions to the Examples seem to be written for students with some familiarity with Engineering Thermodynamics; this appears to be inconsistent with the book’s title, which is Introduction to Engineering Thermodynamics. It is recommended that the Sections be reviewed and edited to provide a sequence of problems of increasing complexity, with all steps delineated, for the training of the students in this field.

    Rapid deployment of wind and solar energy generation is going to result in a series of new problems with regards to the reliability of our electrical grid in terms of outages, cost, and life-time, forcing us to promptly deal with the challenging restructuring of our energy systems. Increased penetration of fluctuating renewable energy resources is a challenge for the electrical grid. Proposing solutions to deal with this problem also impacts the functionality of large generators. The power electronic generator interactions, multi-domain modelling, and reliable monitoring systems are examples of new challenges in this field. This book presents some new modelling methods and technologies for renewable energy generators including wind, ocean, and hydropower systems.

    Hydrophilic polymer coatings on artificial implants generate excellent tribological properties. The friction properties of polymer coatings are affected by salt ion factors. Herein, the atomic force microscopy (AFM) was used to show that the superlubricity was achieved between poly(vinylphosphonic acid) (PVPA)-modified Ti6Al4V and polystyrene (PS) microsphere probe lubricated with monovalent salt solutions (LiCl, NaCl, KCl, and CsCl). Considering that adhesion is an important cause of friction changes, the AFM was further utilized to obtain adhesion between friction pairs in different salt solutions. The results indicated that the larger the cation radius in the lubricant, the smaller the adhesion, and the lower the friction coefficient of the PVPA coating.

    The astonishingly distinct lubricity difference between the ionic liquid modified carbon nanoparticles grafted by anion and cation moieties (A-g-CNPs and C-g-CNPs) was well established as additives of polyethylene glycol (PEG200). The peripheral anion moieties and positively charged inner parts of C-g-CNPs could successively absorb onto the friction interfaces by electrostatic interactions to form the organic—inorganic electric double layer structures, tremendously boosting the lubricity of PEG200. Contrarily, the preferentially electrostatic adsorption of negatively charged inner parts but repulsion of the peripheral cation moieties determined the weak embedded stability of A-g-CNPs between the friction interfaces, even impairing the lubricity of PEG200.

    This text is based on the earlier Workbook for DC Electrical Circuits, which it replaces. The original expository text has been greatly expanded and includes many examples along with computer simulations. For the convenience of those who used the Workbook, many of the problem sets are the same, with some re-ordering depending on the chapter.

    The aluminum alloys belonging to the 7000 series are high-strength alloys used in a wide variety of products for weight reduction. They are primarily used in the field of transportation and aerospace. Among these, the A7075 alloy has the highest strength and is expected to be applicable in a wide range of fields, such as aircraft components and sports equipment. However, it has high deformation resistance and is prone to surface defects, which is called tearing. Tearing typically occurs at high temperatures and high ram speeds, and adversely affects productivity. The localized melting of Zn and additive compounds, due to the heat generated during the process, is considered to cause tearing. In this study, the effect of friction, heat, and tearing at the tool—metal interface was miti...
