For those who work with cylinders, a geometric understanding of the shapes involved and how they fit together are crucial for excellence in their trade. This book allows pipe fitters to connect their work to its logical base -- maths. The straightforward tone, multitude of illustrations, and example problems will help even those with underdeveloped maths skills learn the calculations. Forty-one sets of exercises with answers give the reader ample practice as well as applying the maths skills.
This handy reference is an ideal companion to Pipe Trades Pocket Manual by the same author. This book enables pipefitters to solve difficult problems they will face in their work by providing instructions and calculations for common and unusual tasks.

This collection of short stories, including many new translations, is the first to span the whole of Japan's modern era from the end of the nineteenth century to the present day. Beginning with the first writings to assimilate and rework Western literary traditions, through the flourishing of the short story genre in the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the Taisho era, to the new breed of writers produced under the constraints of literary censorship, and the current writings reflecting the pitfalls and paradoxes of modern life, this anthology offers a stimulating survey of the development of the Japanese short story. Various indigenous traditions, in addition to those drawn from the West, recur throughout the stories: stories of the self, of the Water Trade (Tokyo's nightlife of geishas and prostitutes), of social comment, love and obsession, legends and fairytales. This collection includes the work of two Nobel prize-winners: Kawabata and Oe, the talented women writers Hirabayashi, Euchi, Okamoto, and Hayashi, together with the acclaimed Tanizaki, Mishima, and Murakami. The introduction by Theodore Goossen gives insight into these exotic and enigmatic, sometimes disturbing stories, derived from the lyrical roots of Japanese literature with its distinctive stress on atmosphere and beauty.
This book was created to ease the mind and to simplify the use of offsets and angles to where the beginner as well as the novice pipefitter and welder will understand how easy it is to layout and understand how to calculate offsets and angles. This book will help you understand the everyday tasks of pipe fabrication. On each page I walk you through step by step and show you the formula's for calculating that type of offset. This way, if you have an odd angle or offset that is not shown, you can calculate it with ease by using that same type of formula. This book is designed to help you understand how to layout common and uncommon angles and offsets. Pipefitting and fabrication of piping is basically simple, if you understand the concepts. This book is designed to help you understand these concepts.
The new edition of this bestselling reference provides fully updated and detailed descriptions of plastics joining processes, plus an extensive compilation of data on joining specific materials. The volume is divided into two main parts: processes and materials. The processing section has 18 chapters, each explaining a different joining technique. The materials section has joining information for 25 generic polymer families. Both sections contain data organized according to the joining methods used for that material. * A significant and extensive update from experts at The Welding Institute * A systematic approach to discussing each joining method including: process, advantages and disadvantages, applications, materials, equipment, joint design, and welding parameters * Includes international suppliers’ directory and glossary of key joining terms * Includes new techniques such as flash free welding and friction stir welding * Covers thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers, and rubbers.
As a successful London tobacconist in the early 1900s, Alfred Dunhill’s passion for his field led him to begin collecting pipes from all over the world. From his collection he created The Pipe Book, which was first printed in 1924 and has rarely been out of print since. The book is a thorough exploration of every type of pipe—primitive mounds and earthen pipes; more elegant models of ivory, clay, and porcelain; and of course modern briers, cobs, and meerschaums—with in-depth explanations of their uses, structures, and origins, as well as fascinating anthropological discussions on smoking in various cultures.
Timothy is on probation. It's a strange word—something that happens to other kids, to delinquents, not to kids like him. And yet, he is under house arrest for the next year. He must check in weekly with a probation officer and a therapist, and keep a journal for an entire year. And mostly, he has to stay out of trouble. But when he must take drastic measures to help his struggling family, staying out of trouble proves more difficult than Timothy ever thought it would be. By turns touching and funny, and always original, House Arrest is a middlegrade novel in verse about one boy's path to redemption as he navigates life with a sick brother, a grieving mother, and one tough probation officer.
