Since the original publication of this book, available computer power has increased greatly. Today, scientific computing is playing an ever more prominent role as a tool in scientific discovery and engineering analysis. In this second edition, the key addition is an introduction to the finite element method. This is a widely used technique for solving […]
Presents a fundamental treatment of engineering graphics, geometry, and modeling suitable for engineers and technologists. This work reflects the developments drafting procedures. It enhances understanding of graphics fundamentals in the era of computer-aided design to better prepare students to use CADD software effectively.
Are you looking for ways to incorporate rigorous problem solving in your classroom? Are you struggling with how to include the “E” in your STEM instruction? Here is where to start. In this practical introduction to engineering for elementary through high school teachers, you’ll learn how to create effective engineering-infused lessons that break down the […]
Written by an electrical engineer this book presents a novel approach in electric circuit theory which is based on interval analysis — an intensively developing branch or applied mathematics. Covering major topics in both circuit and system theory and their applications, it suggests a variety of methods that are suited for handling linear and nonlinear […]
Up and Running with AutoCAD 2019: 2D Drafting and Design focuses on 2D drafting and design, making it more appropriate for a one-semester course. The book provides step-by-step instruction, examples and insightful explanations. From the beginning, the book emphasizes core concepts and the practical application of AutoCAD in engineering, architecture and design. Equally useful in […]
Engineering rock mechanics is the discipline used to design structures built in rock. These structures encompass building foundations, dams, slopes, shafts, tunnels, caverns, hydroelectric schemes, mines, radioactive waste repositories and geothermal energy projects: in short, any structure built on or in a rock mass. Despite the variety of projects that use rock engineering, the principles […]
This textbook, apart from introducing the basic aspects of applied mathematics, focuses on recent topics such as information data manipulation, information coding, data approximation, data dimensionality reduction, data compression, time-frequency and time scale bases, image manipulation, and image noise removal. The methods treated in more detail include spectral representation and “frequency” of the data, providing […]
A unified presentation of the analysis and design of microwave transistor amplifiers (and oscillators) — using scattering parameters techniques. KEY FEATURES: Presents material on: transmission-lines concepts; power waves and generalized scattering parameters; measurements of scattering parameters; bipolar and field-effect transistors; power gain expressions; constant VSWR circles; gain, noise, and VSWR design trade offs; broadband amplifiers, […]
Engineering Drawing and Design offers the most comprehensive program available. The new exciting full-color text, supplemented with a broad spectrum of learning tools, brings real-world engineering drawing and design right into the classroom.
First published over 40 years ago, this work has achieved the status of a classic among introductory texts on mechanics. Den Hartog is known for his lively, discursive and often witty presentations of all the fundamental material of both statics and dynamics (and considerable more advanced material) in new, original ways that provide students with […]
