Technical Drawing for Stage Design explains the importance of drawing in the design process, revealing how the initial two-dimensional drawing is a crucial building block in creating the scale model that in turn will develop into the stage set - that will transport the audience into another world. Topics covered include: introducing the tools and equipment used by the designer; developing confidence in freehand sketching; drawing to aid the creative thought process, communicate design ideas and help with the construction process; scenic elements and the related terminology; the architecture of the theatre - and how to draw it. Aimed at drama students and teachers, technical drawing students, amateur dramatics groups and theatre workshop organisers, Technical Drawing for Stage Design offers an attractive and practical manual on the subject. Well illustrated with approximately 120 black and white images.

In this newly revised second edition, veteran stage designers and technical directors Dennis Dorn and Mark Shanda introduce industry-standard drafting and designing practices with step-by-step discussions, illustrations, worksheets, and problems to help students develop and refine drafting and other related skills needed for entertainment set production work. By incorporating the foundational principles of both hand- and computer-drafting approaches throughout the entire book, the authors illustrate how to create clear and detailed drawings that advance the production process. Early chapters focus on the basics of geometric constructions, orthographic techniques, soft-line sketching applications, lettering, and dimensioning. Later chapters discuss real-life applications of production drawing and ancillary skills such as time and material estimation and shop-drawing nomenclature. Two chapters detail a series of design and shop drawings required to mount a specific design project, providing a guided path through both phases of the design/construction process. Most chapters conclude with one or more worksheets or problems that provide readers with an opportunity to test their understanding of the material presented. The authors' discussion of universal CAD principles throughout the manuscript provides a valuable foundation that can be used in any computer-based design, regardless of the software. Dorn and Shanda treat the computer as another drawing tool, like the pencil or T-square, but one that can help a knowledgeable drafter potentially increase personal productivity and accuracy when compared to traditional hand-drafting techniques. Drafting for the Theatre, second edition assembles in one book all the principal types of drawings, techniques, and conventional wisdom necessary for the production of scenic drafting, design, and shop drawings. It is richly illustrated with numerous production examples and is fully indexed to assist students and technicians in finding important information. It is structured to support a college-level course in drafting, but will also serve as a handy reference for the working theatre professional.

The Manual of Engineering Drawing has long been recognised as the student and practising engineer's guide to producing engineering drawings that comply with ISO and British Standards. The information in this book is equally applicable to any CAD application or manual drawing. The second edition is fully in line with the requirements of the new British Standard BS8888: 2002, and will help engineers, lecturers and students with the transition to the new standards. BS8888 is fully based on the relevant ISO standards, so this book is also ideal for an international readership. The comprehensive scope of this book encompasses topics including orthographic, isometric and oblique projections, electric and hydraulic diagrams, welding and adhesive symbols, and guidance on tolerancing. Written by a member of the ISO committee and a former college lecturer, the Manual of Engineering Drawing combines up-to-the-minute technical accuracy with clear, readable explanations and numerous diagrams. This approach makes this an ideal student text for vocational courses in engineering drawing and undergraduates studying engineering design / product design.

Der Dieselmotor und die Einspritzanlage bilden eine untrennbare Einheit. In zunehmendem Maß gewinnt die Elektronik an Bedeutung, um die wachsenden Forderungen nach geringem Schadstoffausstoß und geringem Kraftstoffverbrauch zu erfüllen. Jüngste Beispiele hierfür sind das Unit Injector System UIS und das Speichereinspritzsystem Common Rail, das mit dem Piezo-Inline-Injektor die Möglichkeiten zur Verbrauchsreduzierung noch mal entscheidend verbessert. Die aktuellen Maßnahmen zur innermotorischen Emissionsminderung, aber auch zur nachträglichen Schadstoffreduzierung wie Partikelfilter, SCR-Katalysator, Speicherkatalysator und Oxidationskatalysator werden ausführlich erklärt.

Using examples and projects taken directly from our popular Engineering Drawing and Design book, this all-new video series provides viewers with 160 minutes of step-by-step demonstrations of drafting, sketching, and CAD transitioning techniques on 8 tapes. The first video in this series begins with an introduction to the design process, from steps required to produce an effective design through how design and drafting fits into the manufacturing process. Tapes 3 through 6 guide viewers to mastery of specific skills, such as: sketching, orthographic projections, dimensioning, geometric constructions, plus auxiliary views and section drawings. Given the importance of computers in today's workplace, an entire tape is devoted to making the transition from drafting board to CAD with emphasis on geometric construction drawings. The final tape offers insights into the use of tools used to move a design from the initial sketch to the manufacturing stage, including rapid prototyping, part animation, and final manufacturing of a part in the assembly. In a field that requires highly developed visualization skills, this one-of-a-kind video series will greatly reduce the learning curve. The modular video series design also ensures that the content reflects current design and manufacturing industry practices as well as the latest technological innovations, preparing the viewer for a career in today's engineering environment.
