Rolling Contact Fatigue in a Vacuum: Test Equipment and by Michael Danyluk,Anoop Dhingra

By Michael Danyluk,Anoop Dhingra

This e-book bargains with put on and function checking out of skinny sturdy movie lubrication and difficult coatings in an ultra-high vacuum (UHV), a technique which allows quick accumulation of pressure cycles in comparison with checking out in oil at atmospheric strain. The authors’ lucid and authoritative narrative broadens readers' figuring out of some great benefits of UHV trying out: a cleanser, shorter try is completed in excessive vacuum, disturbance rejection through the deposition controller could be optimized for optimum fatigue lifetime of the coating utilizing rolling touch fatigue checking out (RCF) in a excessive vacuum, and RCF checking out in UHV stipulations allows a swifter learn of deposition regulate parameters. briefly, Rolling touch Fatigue in a Vacuum is an fundamental source for researchers and engineers fascinated by skinny movie deposition, sunlight flat panel production, actual vapor deposition, MEMS production (for lubrication of MEMS), tribology in more than a few industries, and automobile and marine put on coatings for engines and transmissions.

Single-case and Small-n Experimental Designs: A Practical by Pat Dugard,Portia File,Jonathan Todman

By Pat Dugard,Portia File,Jonathan Todman

This functional advisor explains using randomization assessments and offers instance designs and macros for implementation in IBM SPSS and Excel. It studies the speculation and perform of single-case and small-n designs so readers can draw legitimate causal inferences from small-scale scientific stories. The macros and instance facts are supplied at the book’s site in order that clients can run analyses of the textual content information in addition to info from their very own studies.


The new version features:



  • More rationalization as to why randomization checks are beneficial and the way to use them.

  • More assorted and accelerated examples that exhibit using those exams in schooling, medical paintings and psychology.

  • A site with the macros and datasets for all the textual content examples in IBM SPSS and Excel.

  • Exercises on the finish of such a lot chapters that support readers try their realizing of the material.

  • A new word list that defines the major phrases that seem in italics after they are first introduced.

  • A new appendix that stories the elemental talents had to do randomization tests.

  • New appendices that offer annotated SPSS and Excel macros to aid readers write their very own or tinker with those supplied within the book.

The publication opens with an outline of unmarried case and small n designs -- why they're wanted and the way they vary from descriptive case reports. bankruptcy 2 specializes in the elemental suggestions of randoization exams. subsequent tips on how to decide upon and enforce a randomization layout is reviewed together with fabric on tips on how to practice the randomizations, the right way to decide on the variety of observations, and the way to checklist the knowledge. bankruptcy five makes a speciality of tips on how to learn the knowledge together with find out how to use the macros and comprehend the implications. bankruptcy 6 exhibits how randomization exams healthy into the physique of statistical inference. bankruptcy 7 discusses dimension and gear. The publication concludes with an indication of ways to edit or alter the macros or use elements of them to put in writing your own.

Ja zum Nein: Selbstachtung statt Harmoniesucht – Mit by Kirstin Nickelsen

By Kirstin Nickelsen

Dieses Buch ist ein echter Selbstschutz-Leitfaden für alle, denen Grenzen setzen schwer fällt. Ihnen kommt ein „Nein“ zu Mehrarbeit oder Gefälligkeiten nur schwer über die Lippen, obwohl der eigene Schreibtisch schon randvoll ist. Stattdessen bleibt der hilflose Ärger über cooks und Kollegen: „Immer ich, mit mir kann guy es ja machen!“. Privat läuft es ähnlich, doch irgendwann ist das Maß voll, sind die Batterien leer. Davor schützt nur gekonntes „Nein“-Sagen – und das will gelernt sein. Wer nicht intestine „Nein“ sagen kann, hat in der Regel Angst: vor dem Verlust des Jobs, vor dem Verlust von Zuneigung, Wertschätzung and so forth. Die Autorin hinterfragt diese Ängste und zeigt Wege, sie einfach und souverän zu bewältigen, eigene Grenzen zu erkennen und diese voll Selbstrespekt zu wahren. So gewinnt sich der Leser wieder als wichtigsten Menschen im eigenen Leben. Zahlreiche praktische Übungen, die sofort in die Tat umgesetzt werden können, machen dieses Buch zu einem besonders wertvollen Alltagshelfer. Die zweite Auflage wurde durchgesehen, korrigiert und neu gestaltet.
