  • The dictionary contains approximately 5,000 entries in each of the four languages covered (English, German, French and Russian). This dictionary provides a comprehensive collection of terms used in high-energy physics. The terms were compiled from specialized literature, including the most recent reports from research institutes and proceedings of conferences. The dictionary uses the approved lexicographical system of the other dictionaries. To each entry is added the special field from which the term derives and further information that may help in understanding the correct meaning of the term. The alphanumeric arrangement allows the user to translate from any of the fourmore » languages into any of the other languages included.« less
  • The Dictionary of Automobile Engineering is divided into three main parts: (1) The English basic table, with translations in German, French, Italian and Spanish and sometimes a short definition in English; the English terms in this table are arranged alphabetically and numbered consecutively. English synonyms are listed in their proper place, with a reference to the number of the main entry. (2) The separate indexes for each of the four languages other than English. (3) A collection of illustrations of major components, parts, etc., and exploded views showing further details. Users of the dictionary looking for the equivalent of anmore » English word or term need only consult the first part, where they will find the translations in the other languages. In many cases they will also find one or more references to the relevant illustrations. The second part is of use when translating from a language other than English. When, for instance, a German word or term has to be translated into another language, the German index should be consulted. This refers one back (by number) to the basic table, where one finds the translation in the appropriate language and possibly a reference to an illustration. In the legends to the illustrations the English name of each indicated component part is given, together with its basic table number. A glance at the basic table then reveals the German, French, Italian and Spanish equivalents.« less
  • The glossary defines terms used in the field of heat transfer. The English, French, and German terms in this glossary have been reworked and updated. A section of Japanese terms has also been provided. Terms covered are grouped into the following categories: (1) General Concepts; (2) Dimensional and Similarity Methods; (3) Heat Conduction; (4) Convective Heat Transfer in a Single-Phase Medium; (5) Convective Heat Transfer in Evaporation, Boiling, and Condensation; (6) Mass Transfer; and (7) Radiativae Heat Transfer. Alphabetical indexes of English,Russian, German, French, and Japanese terms are included.
  • This dictionary has been complied by coworkers of the Department of Applied Linguistics of the Dresden University of Technology. It comprises the special terms of a highly important economical branch of science and technology. Corrosion-induced damage occurs in every branch of technology, and subsequent losses in money and material are enormous. Experts estimate that about one-third of the annual world production of steel and iron is destroyed by corrosion. Corrosion protection is thus becoming increasingly important in order to solve the problems involved, a profound understanding of corrosion processes and of the possibilities of corrosion control is indispensible. The dictionarymore » comprises approximately 3,000 entries in each part taken from a wide variety of fields.« less
