On Thursday 6 March 2003, Air Algérie Flight DAH 6289, a Boeing 737-200, suffered during take-off from Tamanrasset, in Southern Algeria, a contained burst in the left engine. The airplane... More > swung to the left, lost speed progressively, stalled and crashed, with the landing gear still extended, about one thousand six hundred and forty-five meters from the takeoff point, to the left of the runway extended centerline. The crew and 96 passengers were killed in the accident, one passenger survived. The airplane was on a domestic flight from Tamanrasset to Ghardaïa and Algiers.< Less
•Design and Evaluation of Network Survivability Schemes for Correlated Multi-Failure Scenarios By Oscar Diaz
Hardcover: $19.38
Ships in 6-8 business days.
Computer network recovery from multiple correlated failures is a major concern given the increased level of infrastructure vulnerability to natural disasters, massive power failures, and malicious... More > attacks. In many cases, existing network recovery schemes cannot handle such scenarios as they are mostly designed for isolated single node and link failures. Hence in order to properly address this concern, improved network recovery schemes are needed based upon probabilistic failure models. This work presents some novel path protection algorithms along these lines to help minimize failure probabilities and also take into account well-known traffic engineering concerns. Network simulation is also used to evaluate the proposed solutions.< Less

Illustrated by Andrew Christensen. Canals and Dams invites children ages 9 and up to explore the innovation and physical science behind the amazing waterways and barriers our world depends on. Trivia... More > and fun facts illustrate engineering ingenuity and achievements from ancient aqueducts to the Suez Canal and the Hoover Dam. Readers will discover that engineers and builders alike put their lives on the line to advance civilization, experiencing triumphs and tragedies in building big. Through dazzling success and heartbreaking failure, they developed increasingly sophisticated tools and building methods. Activities encourage children to explore the engineering process and to try, try again through trial and error. They’ll create a paper-cup zip line, build an arch, and simulate a tsunami, while experimenting with gravity, hydroponics, and velocity. In Canals and Dams children will gain an appreciation for the important field of engineering as they develop their own building skills.< Less

This book is written for non-mechanics readers. It gives very simple basic principle written for ordinary audience. It emphasizes on the basic principle and philosophy of fracture mechanics so that... More > readers who plan to adopt fracture mechanics in their areas can do it the smart way. It also discusses about the limitation so that ordinary engineers do not implement linear elastic fracture mechanics beyond its limitations. It has plenty examples on the simple applications of linear elastic fracture mechanics outside the mechanics world. This book is filling the gap between the fracture mechanics used in the ‘mechanics world’ and the fracture mechanics used ‘outside mechanics world’. It is also perfect for researchers outside mechanics who want to incorporate fracture mechanics in their works. His industrial experience combined with academic professorship enables him to change the once ‘academic knowledge’ into ‘daily useful knowledge’.< Less
Air Crash Investigations - Horror in Guam - The Crash of Korean Air Flight 801 By Igor Korovin, Editor

On August 6, 1997, about 0142:26 Guam local time, Korean Air flight 801, a Boeing 747-300, crashed at Nimitz Hill, Guam. The aircraft was on its way from Seoul, Korea to Guam with 237 passengers and... More > a crew of 17 on board. Of the 254 persons on board, 228 were killed. The airplane was destroyed by impact forces and a post-crash fire.

The first book devoted solely to the subject of landing a helicopter without engine power. It covers the basics, as seen from the cockpit of the helicopter, and is written from the pilot's... More > perspective. It covers the subject for both the student helicopter pilot and the helicopter flight instructor. Training exercises are developed, starting from the very beginning through to how to adjust the flight path to arrive at a particular spot. The Height-Velocity curve and it's development are covered. There are few formulae, and many diagrams. The text has been developed from the author's experience teaching autorotations at a major manufacturer's training school as well teaching student test pilots about the height-velocity diagram while instructing at three different test pilot schools. It is also based on his experience as an engineering test pilot at Transport Canada.< Less
AIR CRASH INVESTIGATIONS EYE OF THE NEEDLE The Crash of British Airways Flight 38 By Hans Griffioen, editor

On 28 November 2008, a Boeing 777-200ER, operated by British Airways as flight BA38, on its way from Beijing, China to London (Heathrow), suffered on approach to Heathrow Airport an in-flight engine... More > rollback. At 720 feet agl, the right engine ceased responding to autothrottle commands for increased power and instead the power reduced to 1.03 Engine Pressure Ratio (EPR). Seven seconds later the left engine power reduced to 1.02 EPR. This reduction led to a loss of airspeed and the aircraft touching down some 330 m short of the paved surface of Runway 27L at London Heathrow. The investigation identified that the reduction in thrust was due to restricted fuel flow to both engines. It was determined that the restriction occurred most probably in the Fuel Oil Heat Exchangers. The investigation identified the forming of ice in the fuel system as probable cause. The aircraft was destroyed, but there were no casualties.< Less
