The main purpose of this book is to provide civil engineering students with a clear presentation of the theory of engineering graphics and the use of AutoCAD 2015. Each chapter starts with the chapter objectives followed by the introduction. The contents of each chapter are organized into well-defined sections that contain step-by-step instructions to carry out the AutoCAD commands. The drawings shown in this book are created using AutoCAD 2015 and Paint software. Several improvements are made to the current edition. The major contents of the book are based on the ribbon interface. A new chapter has been added on tolerancing. The index is improved. The chapter titled as Suggested In-Class Activities provides in-class activities (or ICA). For some of the initial ICAs, it explains the drawing with the help of step-by-step instruction. Also, new problems are added to the homework’s chapter. Furthermore, the contents and the drawings of every chapter are improved. Each chapter starts with the chapter objectives followed by the introduction. The bulleted objectives provide a general overview of the material covered. The contents of each chapter are organized into well-defined sections that contain detailed step-by-step instruction with graphical illustrations to carry out the AutoCAD commands.

The study of flight dynamics requires a thorough understanding of the theory of the stability and control of aircraft, an appreciation of flight control systems and a grounding in the theory of automatic control. Flight Dynamics Principles is a student focused text and provides easy access to all three topics in an integrated modern systems context. Written for those coming to the subject for the first time, the book provides a secure foundation from which to move on to more advanced topics such as, non-linear flight dynamics, flight simulation, handling qualities and advanced flight control. About the author: After graduating Michael Cook joined Elliott Flight Automation as a Systems Engineer and contributed flight control systems design to several major projects. Later he joined the College of Aeronautics to research and teach flight dynamics, experimental flight mechanics and flight control. Previously leader of the Dynamics, Simulation and Control Research Group he is now retired and continues to provide part time support. In 2003 the Group was recognised as the Preferred Academic Capability Partner for Flight Dynamics by BAE SYSTEMS and in 2007 he received a Chairman's Bronze award for his contribution to a joint UAV research programme. New to this edition: Additional examples to illustrate the application of computational procedures using tools such as MATLAB®, MathCad® and Program CC®. Improved compatibility with, and more expansive coverage of the North American notational style. Expanded coverage of lateral-directional static stability, manoeuvrability, command augmentation and flight in turbulence. An additional coursework study on flight control design for an unmanned air vehicle (UAV).
For courses in Engineering. Start at the beginning to introduce your students to MATLAB MATLAB� For Engineers introduces students the MATLAB coding language. Developed out of Moore's experience teaching MATLAB and other languages, the text meets students at their level of mathematical and computer sophistication. Starting with basic algebra, the book shows how MATLAB can be used to solve a wide range of engineering problems. Examples drawn from concepts introduced in early chemistry and physics classes and freshman and sophomore engineering classes stick to a consistent problem-solving methodology. Students reading this text should have an understanding of college-level algebra and basic trigonometry. The text includes brief backgrounds when introducing new subjects like statistics and matrix algebra. Sections on calculus and differential equations are introduced near the end and can be used for additional reading material for students with more advanced mathematical backgrounds.
