General Electric GE285 Aluminum and Metal Silicone II Caulk, 2.8-Ounce,Metallic Grey
General Electric GE285 Aluminum and Metal
GE Silicone II Aluminum & Metal 100% Silicone Caulk- THREE-HOUR RAIN-READY - Caulk has to have enough time to build adhesion to the surface and cure or dry adequately so it won't wash away when exposed to water. That means if rain is in the forecast, homeowners and pros typically will have to delay or cancel a project when using most caulks. If not, the rain might wash the caulk away and the job will have to be redone. Silicone caulk, such as GE Silicone II* Aluminum & Metal, develops strength and adhesion quickly so it can be exposed to water in as little as three hours. Some caulk requires up to 24 hours or longer before water exposure. For homeowners trying to squeeze home maintenance projects into the weekend or pros who are looking to move to the next job, GE Silicone II* caulk can decrease the waiting time, helping increase convenience, speed and efficiency. SUN-/FREEZE-PROOF - The outside of a home is exposed to harsh outdoor elements throughout the year. Extreme heat, the sun's UV rays and freezing temperatures can cause acrylic caulk to lose its flexibility and degrade. The permanent flexibility of GE Silicone II* keeps it from breaking down so it can protect a surface even as joints expand and contract. Degraded acrylic caulk can crack and crumble over time, leaving gap...

The Turbine Pilot's Flight Manual
The Turbine Pilot's Flight
Designed for the pilot of piston-engine aircraft who is preparing for turbine ground school, the transitioning military pilot studying for that first corporate or airline interview, or even the old pro brushing up on turbine aircraft operations, this manual covers all the basics, clearly explaining the differences between turbine aircraft and their piston-engine counterparts. It addresses high-speed aerodynamics, coordinating multipilot crews, wake turbulence, and navigating in high-altitude weather. The book is like an operations manual for these complex aircraft, detailing pilot operations that include preflight, normal, emergency, IFR, and fueling procedures. Readers will be introduced to flight dispatch; state-of-the-art cockpit instrumentation, including the flight management system (FMS) and the head-up guidance system (HGS or HUD); and the operating principles of hazard avoidance systems, including weather radar, lightning detectors, and the ground proximity warning system (GPWS). Updated to reflect the newest Federal Aviation Administration regulations and procedures, this new edition also includes a glossary of airline and corporate aviation terminology, handy turbine pilot rules of thumb, and a comprehensive turbine aircraft Spotter's Guide.”

EIGHT DECADES OF PROGRESS A Heritage of Aircraft Turbine Technology
The Renewable Energy Home Handbook: Insulation & energy saving, Living off-grid, Bio-mass heating, Wind turbines, Solar electric PV generation, Solar water heating, Heat pumps, & more
The Renewable Energy Home Handbook: Insulation & energy
The Renewable Energy Home Handbook is biased towards the practical, and covers the installation of all leading types of alternative domestic energy sources - from ground- and air-source heat pumps, PV solar electricity generation and solar water heating, to bio-mass domestic heating systems and wind turbines. Discussing the pros and cons of each technology, it also provides you with a clear overview of what's genuinely required and the benefits to be gained from each system.The author, Lindsay Porter, is best known for his books on motor vehicle technology, making car mechanics and body repairs easy to understand and carry out. But alternative energy and conservation have long been a passion for him and his wife, Shan, so this manual is very much a labour of love. Here, Lindsay applies his commitment to making difficult subjects easy for everyone to understand to the money-saving - planet-saving - systems we can apply to our homes.

Propulsion and Power: An Exploration of Gas Turbine Performance Modeling
Propulsion and Power: An Exploration of Gas Turbine
The book is written for engineers and students who wish to address the preliminary design of gas turbine engines, as well as the associated performance calculations, in a practical manner. A basic knowledge of thermodynamics and turbomachinery is a prerequisite for understanding the concepts and ideas described. The book is also intended for teachers as a source of information for lecture materials and exercises for their students. It is extensively illustrated with examples and data from real engine cycles, all of which can be reproduced with GasTurb (TM). It discusses the practical application of thermodynamic, aerodynamic and mechanical principles. The authors describe the theoretical background of the simulation elements and the relevant correlations through which they are applied, however they refrain from detailed scientific derivations.

Gas Turbine Design, Components and System Design Integration
Gas Turbine Design, Components and System Design
This book written by a world-renowned expert with more than forty years of active gas turbine R&D experience comprehensively treats the design of gas turbine components and their integration into a complete system. Unlike many currently available gas turbine handbooks that provide the reader with an overview without in-depth treatment of the subject, the current book is concentrated on a detailed aero-thermodynamics, design and off-deign performance aspects of individual components as well as the system integration and its dynamic operation.This new book provides practicing gas turbine designers and young engineers working in the industry with design material that the manufacturers would keep proprietary. The book is also intended to provide instructors of turbomachinery courses around the world with a powerful tool to assign gas turbine components as project and individual modules that are integrated into a complete system. Quoting many statements by the gas turbine industry professionals, the young engineers graduated from the turbomachinery courses offered by the author, had the competency of engineers equivalent to three to four years of industrial experience.

The Micro-Hydro Pelton Turbine Manual: Design, Manufacture and Installation for Small-Scale Hydro-Power
The Micro-Hydro Pelton Turbine Manual: Design, Manufacture and
Micro-hydro is a useful way of providing power to houses, workshops or villages that need an independent supply. For many remote areas beyond the reach of a national grid, micro-hydro is the only economic option. Where flow is limited, but high heads are available, the Pelton wheel is one of the most useful turbines. The "Micro-hydro Pelton Turbine Manual" is written to enable the reader to design and manufacture Pelton turbines with capacities from a few hundred watts to around 100kw, though much of the information is relevant for larger units too. Aimed at readers with a general engineering workshop background, the emphasis is on simple technology, so that the turbines can be made in small workshops with basic engineering facilities. More advanced processes are discussed for those with access to better manufacturing facilities. As well as detailing all the important aspects of design, the book covers basic theory, turbine selection, manufacture, installation, testing and problem-solving. The manual is well illustrated and contains many comprehensive appendices, which include manufacturing reference information and the derivation of equations used.
