The primary goal of Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using Creo Simulate 3.0 is to introduce the aspects of finite element analysis (FEA) that are important to the engineers and designers. Theoretical aspects of finite element analysis are also introduced as they are needed to help better understand the operations. The primary emphasis of the text is placed on the practical concepts and procedures of using Creo Simulate in performing Linear Statics Stress Analysis; but the basic modal analysis procedure is covered. This text is intended to be used as a training guide for both students and professionals. This text covers Creo Simulate 3.0 and the lessons proceed in a pedagogical fashion to guide you from constructing basic truss elements to generating three-dimensional solid elements from solid models. This text takes a hands-on exercise intensive approach to all the important Finite Element Analysis techniques and concepts. This textbook contains a series of twelve tutorial style lessons designed to introduce beginning FEA users to Creo Simulate. The basic premise of this book is the more designs you create using Creo Simulate, the Better you learn the software. With this in mind, each lesson introduces a new set of commands and concepts, building on previous lessons.
Written by an expert electronics engineer who enjoys teaching the practical side of engineering, this book covers all the subjects that a beginning EE needs to know: intuitive circuit and signal analysis, physical equivalents of electrical components, proper use of an oscilloscope, troubleshooting both digital and analog circuits, and much more! Even engineers with years in the industry can benefit from the compendium of practical information provided within. CONTENTS: Chapter 0: What is Electricity Really? Chapter 1: Three Things They Should Have Taught in Engineering 101 Chapter 2: Basic Theory Chapter 3: Pieces Parts Chapter 4: The Real World Chapter 5: Tools Chapter 6: Troubleshooting Chapter 7: Touchy-Feely Stuff Appendix *Covers the engineering basics that have been either left out of a typical engineer's education or forgotten over time *No other book offers a wealth of "insider information" in one volume, specifically geared to help new engineers and provide a refresher for those with more experience *updated content throughout, including 2-color diagrams and a new 'Chapter 0 - What is Electricity Really?' *The accompanying CD-ROM contains a reference library of electronics information, with demo simulation software and engineering calculators

The Fourth Edition of Numerical Methods for Engineers continues the tradition of excellence it established as the winner of the ASEE Meriam/Wiley award for BestTextbook. Instructors love it because it is a comprehensive text that is easy to teach from. Students love it because it is written for them--with great pedagogy and clearexplanations and examples throughout. This edition features an even broader array of applications, including all engineering disciplines.The revision retains the successful pedagogy of the prior editions. Chapra and Canale's unique approach opens each part of the text with sections called Motivation,Mathematical Background, and Orientation, preparing the student for what is to come in a motivating and engaging manner. Each part closes with an Epilogue containingsections called Trade-Offs, Important Relationships and Formulas, and Advanced Methods and Additional References. Much more than a summary, the Epilogue deepensunderstanding of what has been learned and provides a peek into more advanced methods.What's new in this edition? A shift in orientation toward more use of software packages, specifically MATLAB and Excel with VBA. This includes material on developing MATLAB m-files and VBA macros. In addition, the text has been updated to reflect improvements in MATLAB and Excel since the last edition. Also, many more, and more challenging problems are included. The expanded breadth of engineering disciplines covered is especially evident in the problems, which now cover such areas as biotechnology and biomedical engineering.FeaturesØ The new edition retains the clear explanations and elegantly rendered examples that the book is known for.Ø There are approximately 150 new, challenging problems drawn from all engineering disciplines.Ø There are completely new sections on a number of topics including multiple integrals and the modified false position method.Ø The website will provide additional materials, such as programs, for student and faculty use, and will allow users to communicate directly with the authors.
This book was developed to address the difficulty beginning students often find reading computer language texts. Tan and D'Orazio aim to make the process of learning a first language easier and fun, by involving readers in their text, holding their interest, and getting them to think about the meaning and uses of C code. The authors accomplish this goal by using a question and answer style, where the reader's thought processes are stimulated by the same questions about code that students themselves often ask. Tan and D'Orazio answer these questions clearly and directly, focusing the reader's attention on the important issues of C programming.
