  1. Design Engineer's Reference Guide

    Mathematics, Mechanics, and Thermodynamics

    By Keith L. Richards

    Author Keith L. Richards believes that design engineers spend only a small fraction of time actually designing and drawing, and the remainder of their time finding relevant design information for a specific method or problem. He draws on his own experience as a mechanical engineering designer to...

  2. Design Energy Simulation for Architects

    Guide to 3D Graphics

    By Kjell Anderson

    Leading architectural firms are now using in-house design simulation to help make more sustainable design decisions. Taking advantage of these new tools requires understanding of what can be done with simulation, how to do it, and how to interpret the results. This software-agnostic book, which is...

  3. Generation of Surfaces

    Kinematic Geometry of Surface Machining

    By Stephen P. Radzevich

    A commonly used practice in industry is the machining of sculptured part surfaces on a multiaxis numerical control (NC) machine. While this practice is vital, it is also a costly aspect of the surface generation process. After investing more than 40 years of research into the theory of part surface...

  7. Electric Safety

    Practice and Standards

    By Mohamed A. El-Sharkawi

    Electric power engineering education traditionally covers safety of the power equipment and systems. Little attention, if any, is given to the safety of people. When they reach professional status, most power engineers are not familiar with electric safety issues such as practices governing site...

  8. Materials and Process Selection for Engineering Design, Third Edition

    By Mahmoud M. Farag

    Introducing a new engineering product or changing an existing model involves making designs, reaching economic decisions, selecting materials, choosing manufacturing processes, and assessing its environmental impact. These activities are interdependent and should not be performed in isolation from...
