This book introduces the subject of total design, and introduces
the design and selection of various common mechanical engineering
components and machine elements. These provide "building blocks,"
with which the engineer can practice his or her art.
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.
Groover's Principles of Modern Manufacturing is designed for a first course or two-course sequence in Manufacturing at the junior level in Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering curricula. As in preceding editions, the author's objective is to provide a treatment of manufacturing that is modern and quantitative. The book's modern approach is based on balanced coverage of the basic engineering materials, the inclusion of recently developed manufacturing processes and comprehensive coverage of electronics manufacturing technologies. The quantitative focus of the text is displayed in its emphasis on manufacturing science and its greater use of mathematical models and quantitative end-of-chapter problems.
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.
A thoroughly accessible and engaging workbook-style text, ideal for all NVQ students, including Foundation Modern Apprentices. Mechanical Engineering: Level 2 NVQ is a practical and interactive engineering book, written by practicing lecturers and designed for college students and Foundation Modern Apprentices. A highly readable text is supported by numerous assignments provided to build up a portfolio of evidence. Designed so that students can complete the blanks this book can be used as evidence for assessment purposes and as an essential reference guide for their subsequent employment. This book covers the mandatory units (1-3), general support units (4-5) and option units (10-12) required to deliver a full NVQ programme. Key Skills activities are also provided at the relevant points through the book.Mechanical Engineering: NVQ2 is a new single-volume text for the new Performing Engineering Operations NVQs from EMTA and City & Guilds updated and expanded from David Salmon's popular NVQ titles: NVQ Engineering Manufacture: Mandatory UnitsNVQ Engineering: Mechanical Option Units
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.
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.
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.
