MATLAB: A Practical Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving, Fourth Edition, has been updated to reflect the functionality of the current version of MATLAB, including the new H2 Graphics system. It features new and revised end-of-chapter exercises, more engineering applications to help the reader learn this software tool in context, and a new section on object-oriented programming in MATLAB. MATLAB has become the standard software tool for solving scientific and engineering problems due to its powerful built-in functions and its ability to program. Assuming no knowledge of programming, this book guides the reader both programming and built-in functions to easily exploit MATLAB's extensive capabilities for tackling engineering problems. The book starts with programming concepts, such as variables, assignments, and selection statements, moves on to loops, and then solves problems using both the programming concept and the power of MATLAB. In-depth coverage is given to input/output, a topic fundamental to many engineering applications. Presents programming concepts and MATLAB built-in functions side-by-side Offers a systematic, step-by-step approach, building on concepts throughout the book and facilitating easier learning Includes sections on common pitfalls and programming guidelines to direct students toward best practices Combines basic programming concepts, built-in functions, and advanced topics for problem solving with MATLAB to make this book uniquely suitable for a wide range of courses teaching or using MATLAB across the curriculum
Detailing the technical maintenance of turbine and reciprocating engines, this book covers the final section of the FAA's required curriculum. Theory and construction of these engines are also discussed along with propellers, development of aircraft powerplants, and powerplant auxiliary systems.
A core reference for mechanics, aircraft owners, and pilots, this book compiles specifications from numerous reference books and government publications into one handy, toolbox-size reference guide. Revised to reflect current specifications, it provides mechanics with all the reference information critical to maintaining their aircrafts, including the most frequently used measurements, scales, charts, and diagrams. Topics covered in detail include metal fabrication, corrosion control, nondestructive inspection, control systems, and oxygen system servicing. This new edition features additional information on the latest techniques in the industry, including composite materials and aircraft batteries. The stay-flat spiral binding and tabbed format facilitate quick lookups and make this a convenient and safe on-the-job quick reference.

It is also the perfect gift for any aircraft or aeronautical buff.
Taking and passing an FAA Knowledge Exam is required for earning the Private Pilot, Sport Pilot, and Recreational Pilot certificates. Using the FAA exam as the premise for learning, author Bob Gardner applies practical information so readers are not only prepared for the tests, but also for the cockpit. He augments the required aeronautical knowledge by giving specific tips and techniques, checklists, mnemonic devices, and sound advice from personal experience. A full-color example of a sectional chart is provided in the back for use with the interactive exercises throughout the book. Each chapter concludes with sample FAA Knowledge Exam questions. A comprehensive glossary and index are included as well. This practical application of the FAA Knowledge Exam is not available in any other text! Included in this Twelfth Edition are internet links for useful aviation websites, weather charts, flight planning, etc., with a section showing examples of online weather sources and more (with full-color examples of weather chart products). Also included is information on the new ICAO-based flight planning form, scenario-based training, single-pilot resource management, and learner-centered grading. This is a convenient, comprehensive source for this information--everything complete in one book! With Gardner's approachable yet concise writing style, readers are able to quickly grasp the subjects, pass the required tests and checkrides, and gain an operational understanding of flight they can take straight to the cockpit. The Complete Private Pilot works as a companion textbook to ASA's Private Pilot Virtual Test Prep DVD Ground School. An integrated Flight/Ground Syllabus for both Part 141 and 61 programs is also available to accompany the textbook. Foreword by Richard Taylor.
