  1. Design for Innovative Technology

    From Disruption to Acceptance

    By Nicholas Henchoz, Yves Mirande

    Despite their often remarkable performance, new and ‘disruptive’ technologies often meet with resistance from the general public. Design – sometimes assumed to play a purely aesthetic role – is central in making revolutionary technology acceptable to society. Mastering design allows technological...

  4. 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...

  5. 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...

  6. 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...

  10. 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.
