Honda Engine Swaps Aaron Bonk 2007-02-01 When it comes to their personal transportation, today's youth have shunned the large, heavy performance cars of their parents' generation and instead embraced what has become known as the "sport compact"--smaller, lightweight, modern sports cars of predominantly Japanese manufacture. These cars respond well to performance modifications due to their light weight and technology-laden, high-revving engines. And by far, the most sought-after and modified cars are the Hondas and Acuras of the mid-'80s to the present. An extremely popular method of improving vehicle performance is a process known as engine swapping. Engine swapping consists of removing a more powerful engine from a better-equipped or more modern vehicle and installing it into your own. It is one of the most efficient and affordable methods of improving your vehicle's performance. This book covers in detail all the most popular performance swaps for Honda Civic, Accord, and Prelude as well as the Acura Integra. It includes vital information on electrics, fit, and drivetrain compatibility, design considerations, step-by-step instruction, and costs. This book is must-have for the Honda enthusiast.

Car Guys vs. Bean Counters Bob Lutz 2011-06-09 A legend in the car industry reveals the philosophy that's starting to turn General Motors around. In 2001, General Motors hired Bob Lutz out of retirement with a mandate to save the company by making great cars again. He launched a war against penny pinching, office politics, turf wars, and risk avoidance. After declaring bankruptcy during the recession of 2008, GM is back on track thanks to its embrace of Lutz's philosophy. When Lutz got into the auto business in the early sixties, CEOs knew that if you captured the public's imagination with great cars, the money would follow. The car guys held sway, and GM dominated with bold, creative leadership and iconic brands like Cadillac, Buick, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, GMC, and Chevrolet. But then GM's leadership began to put their faith in analysis, determined to eliminate the "waste" and "personality worship" of the bygone creative leaders. Management got too smart for its own good. With the bean counters firmly in charge, carmakers (and much of American industry) lost their single-minded focus on product excellence. Decline followed. Lutz's commonsense lessons (with a generous helping of fascinating anecdotes) will inspire readers at any company facing the bean counter analysis-paralysis menace.

Sinister Suggestions Karen Stephen 2021-09-11 In the fall of 1961, student journalists on the Stanford Daily are forbidden by school authorities and their Chief Editor (who has a nefarious secret of his own to hide) from investigating a campus suicide and murder for fear of damaging the reputation of the "Harvard of the West". Unfazed by the admonition to cease and desist and spurred on by the intriguing tale of a freshman coed, Mattie, who suffers from amnesia that has caused her to forget that she is a student, Rita, Joe, and Jamison set about investigating the deaths and helping Mattie recover her memory and unravel her nightmares of childhood sexual abuse. Mattie wonders if she might have been sexually assaulted while serving as a subject in a hypnosis experiment. Rita, an advocate for gender equality, has already been investigating prior claims of harm to coeds in these studies. Joe, the product of a working-class union family, is convinced there is a connection to the Full Moon incident-a campus prank that degenerated into violent threats of rape against female students. Jamison, a pre-law student with his eye on civil rights issues, steps up to protect Mattie's rights with the university. Will the answers be found within the halls of academia or does the trail of sinister suggestions extend beyond the confines of the campus? Have the husband and wife team of psychologist and physician in charge of the hypnosis studies failed in their duty to protect students? Will the young journalists' determination to solve the deaths and Mattie's dilemma send more than one of them to their doom?In a year in which America hovered between Camelot and catastrophe, the novel's themes-the hazards of academic research, the rights of students, the equality of women, the specter of racism, the abuse of power among physicians, and the toll of childhood sexual trauma on later life-foreshadow, by nearly 60 years, many of the potent issues we face today. And the news of that day-Syria, a wall to keep peoples apart, nuclear threats, Russian treachery, and civil rights protests-seem eerily familiar.
The Strong State in Russia Andrei P. Tsygankov 2014 The Russian state presents a mystery to outside observers. Although Russia was the site of some of the last century's most radical upheavals, and although Russian governments are usually characterized by autocracy, corruption, and political decay, the central government has retained a remarkable hold on the vast country. Does its historical progress represent change, or continuity? How has the political culture molded the expectations and behavior of the Russian people over time? What features of the Russian state are the keys to understanding it? The Strong State in Russia provides a succinct account of Russia's "strong state" model by reviewing the external and internal contexts in each major period and tracing its evolution over time. Every era saw the emergence and growth of a strong state as well as a subsequent decline, but in each the contexts combined in unique ways to produce very different political outcomes. Tsygankov argues that while the Western perspective on Russia is limited, there is an alternative way of thinking about the nation and its problems. Despite focusing on the contemporary Russian state, the book situates it in a broader historical continuity and explains that the roots of its development can be found in the Tsar's autocratic system. Russia's strong state has evolved and survived throughout centuries, and that alone suggests its historical vitality and possible future revival. From this perspective, the central scholarly question is not whether Russia will recreate a strong state, but, rather, what kind of a strong state it will be, and under which circumstances it will likely function.

Automotive Ergonomics Heiner Bubb 2021-10-19 Ergonomics teaches how to design technology in such a way that it is optimally adapted to the needs, wishes and characteristics of the user. In this context, the concept of the human-machine system has become established. In a systematic way and with a detailed view of the complicated technical and perceptual psychological and methodological connections, this book explains the basics of automotive ergonomics with numerous examples. The application is shown in examples such as package, design of displays and control elements, of environmental ergonomics such as lighting, sound, vibrations, climate and smell. The design of driver assistance systems from an ergonomic perspective is also a central topic. The book is rounded off by methods of ergonomic vehicle development, the use of mock-ups, driving simulators and tests in real vehicles and prototypes. For the first time, those responsible in the automotive industry and in the field of relevant research are provided with a specialized systematic work that provides the ergonomic findings in the design of today's automobiles. This provides planners and designers of today's automobiles with concrete information for ergonomic product development, enabling them to keep an eye on decisive requirements and subsequent customer acceptance.

Metal Matrix Composites in Industry Alexander Evans 2013-11-27 Metal matrix composites are making tangible inroads into the "real" world of engineering. They are used in engineering components such as brake rotors, aircraft parts, combustion engines, and heat sinks for electronic systems. Yet, outside a relatively limited circle of specialists, these materials are mostly unknown. Designers do not as a rule think of using these materials, in part because access to information is difficult as these materials have not really entered engineering handbooks. Metal Matrix Composites in Industry is thus useful to engineers who wish to gain introductory knowledge of these materials and who want to know where "to find" them. Additionally, it provides researchers and academics with a survey of current industrial activity in this area of technology.
Vehicular Engine Design Kevin Hoag 2007-02-05 The mechanical engineering curriculum in most universities includes at least one elective course on the subject of reciprocating piston engines. The majority of these courses today emphasize the application of thermodynamics to engine ef?ciency, performance, combustion, and emissions. There are several very good textbooks that support education in these aspects of engine development. However, in most companies engaged in engine development there are far more engineers working in the areas of design and mechanical development. University studies should include opportunities that prepare engineers desiring to work in these aspects of engine development as well. My colleagues and I have undertaken the development of a series of graduate courses in engine design and mechanical development. In doing so it becomes quickly apparent that no suitable te- book exists in support of such courses. This book was written in the hopes of beginning to address the need for an engineering-based introductory text in engine design and mechanical development. It is of necessity an overview. Its focus is limited to reciprocating-piston internal-combustion engines – both diesel and spa- ignition engines. Emphasis is speci?cally on automobile engines, although much of the discussion applies to larger and smaller engines as well. A further intent of this book is to provide a concise reference volume on engine design and mechanical development processes for engineers serving the engine industry. It is intended to provide basic information and most of the chapters include recent references to guide more in-depth study.
