Mechanics of Fluids (Paperback, 4th Student international edition): Bassem Ramadan, Merle C Potter, David C. Wiggert Mechanics of Fluids (Paperback, 4th Student international edition)
Bassem Ramadan, Merle C Potter, David C. Wiggert
R729 R627 Discovery Miles 6 270 Save R102 (14%) In stock

MECHANICS OF FLUIDS presents fluid mechanics in a manner that helps students gain both an understanding of, and an ability to analyze the important phenomena encountered by practicing engineers. The authors succeed in this through the use of several pedagogical tools that help students visualize the many difficult-to-understand phenomena of fluid mechanics. Explanations are based on basic physical concepts as well as mathematics which are accessible to undergraduate engineering students. This fourth edition includes a Multimedia Fluid Mechanics DVD-ROM which harnesses the interactivity of multimedia to improve the teaching and learning of fluid mechanics by illustrating fundamental phenomena and conveying fascinating fluid flows.

Quantum Mechanics (Paperback, 3rd Revised edition): Eugen Merzbacher Quantum Mechanics (Paperback, 3rd Revised edition)
Eugen Merzbacher
R5,323 R686 Discovery Miles 6 860 Save R4,637 (87%) In stock

Rapid advances in quantum optics, atomic physics, particle physics and other areas have been driven by fantastic progress in instrumentation (especially lasers) and computing technology as well as by the ever-increasing emphasis on symmetry and information concepts-requiring that all physicists receive a thorough grounding in quantum mechanics. This book provides a carefully structured and complete exposition of quantum mechanics and illustrates the common threads linking many different phenomena and subfields of physics.

R963 R738 Discovery Miles 7 380 Save R225 (23%) Within 4 - 9 working days

For courses in Applied Mechanics, Statics/Dynamics, or Introduction to Stress Analysis. Featuring a non-calculus approach, this introduction to applied mechanics text combines a straightforward, readable foundation in underlying physics principles with a consistent method of problem solving. It presents the physics principles in small elementary steps; keeps the mathematics at a reasonable level; provides an abundance of worked examples; and features problems that are as practical as possible without becoming too involved with many extraneous details. This edition features 7% more problems, an enhanced layout and design and a logical, disciplined approach that gives students a sound background in core statics and dynamics competencies.

Quality Improvement (Paperback, Pearson New International ed of 9th Revised ed): Dale H. Besterfield Quality Improvement (Paperback, Pearson New International ed of 9th Revised ed)

For undergraduate and graduate-level courses in Quality Control, Statistical Process Control, Quality Improvement, and Quality Assurance. This book will be valuable in programs such as Quality Improvement, Lean Six Sigma, Quality Control, and Statistical Process Control; in Associate Degree in Quality and other technical programs; in Baccalaureate programs in Engineering, Technology, Health Care, Education, and Business; and in Masters Degree programs in business. Formerly titled Quality Control, the field's most accessible introduction to quality has been renamed and revamped to focus on quantitative aspects of quality improvement. New chapters on Lean Enterprise, Six Sigma, Experimental Design, and Taguchi's Quality Engineering have been added, and this new Ninth Edition adds comprehensive coverage of fundamental statistical quality improvement concepts. A practical state-of-the-art approach is stressed throughout, and sufficient theory is presented to ensure that students develop a solid understanding of basic quality principles. To improve accessibility, probability and statistical techniques are presented through simpler math or developed via tables and charts. As with previous editions, this text is written to serve a widely diverse audience of students, including the growing number of "math shy" individuals who must play key roles in quality improvement.

Applied Thermodynamics for Engineering Technologists (Paperback, 5th Revised edition): T.D. Eastop, A. McConkey Applied Thermodynamics for Engineering Technologists (Paperback, 5th Revised edition)
T.D. Eastop, A. McConkey
R1,537 Discovery Miles 15 370 Within 7 - 11 working days

Applied Thermodynamics for Engineering Technologists provides a complete introduction to the principles of thermodynamics for degree level students on courses in mechanical, aeronautical, chemical, environmental and energy engineering and engineering science courses.

The fifth edition of this classic text for applied courses has been completely revised and updated to take account of modern teaching methods and perspectives, with the emphasis placed on the application of theory to real processes and plant. New for this edition is a section on energy recovery, including pinch technology and a discussion of the thinning of the ozone layer due to the use of CFCs. Examples and problems using the refrigerant 134A replace the previous references to CFC R12. In addition, the discussion of energy sources, their uses and management, has been expanded and improved and there is now extensive coverage of the combined heat and power section. The material on turbines, compressors, nozzles and propulsion is presented in a more logical sequence but retains important information on the differences between gas and steam turbines. Finally the section on refrigeration gives more prominence to the heat pump and vapour absorption plant.

Mechanical Engineering, Level 2: NVQ (Paperback): David Salmon, Penny Powdrill Mechanical Engineering, Level 2: NVQ (Paperback)

Finite Elements - Theory, Fast Solvers, and Applications in Solid Mechanics (Paperback, 3rd Revised edition): Dietrich Braess Finite Elements - Theory, Fast Solvers, and Applications in Solid Mechanics (Paperback, 3rd Revised edition)
Dietrich Braess
R1,368 Discovery Miles 13 680 Within 7 - 15 working days

This definitive introduction to finite element methods has been thoroughly updated for a third edition which features important new material for both research and application of the finite element method. The discussion of saddle-point problems is a highlight of the book and has been elaborated to include many more nonstandard applications. The chapter on applications in elasticity now contains a complete discussion of locking phenomena. The numerical solution of elliptic partial differential equations is an important application of finite elements and the author discusses this subject comprehensively. These equations are treated as variational problems for which the Sobolev spaces are the right framework. Graduate students who do not necessarily have any particular background in differential equations, but require an introduction to finite element methods will find this text invaluable. Specifically, the chapter on finite elements in solid mechanics provides a bridge between mathematics and engineering.
