Integrating physical modeling, mathematical analysis, and computer simulation, Instrumentation Design Studies explores a wide variety of specific and practical instrumentation design situations. The author uses MATLAB® and SIMULINK® for dynamic system simulation, Minitab® for statistical...

Finite Element Simulations Using ANSYS

Esam M. Alawadhi
May 22, 2017

The complexity of modern-day problems in mechanical engineering makes relying on pure theory or pure experiment impractical at best and time-consuming and unwieldy at worst. And for a large class of engineering problems writing computer codes from scratch is seldom found in practice. Use of...

April 07, 2017

The world is undergoing a profound transformation, driven by radical technological changes and an accelerated globalisation process. A new culture of greater resource efficiency and disruptive innovation will require new technologies, processes and materials, fostering new knowledge, innovation,...

Design Engineer's Handbook

Keith L. Richards
March 29, 2017

Student design engineers often require a "cookbook" approach to solving certain problems in mechanical engineering. With this focus on providing simplified information that is easy to retrieve, retired mechanical design engineer Keith L. Richards has written Design Engineer’s Handbook. This book...

Meshless Methods and Their Numerical Properties

Hua Li, Shantanu S. Mulay
March 29, 2017

Meshless, or meshfree methods, which overcome many of the limitations of the finite element method, have achieved significant progress in numerical computations of a wide range of engineering problems. A comprehensive introduction to meshless methods, Meshless Methods and Their Numerical Properties...

Wei Tong
March 29, 2017

Rapid increases in energy consumption and emphasis on environmental protection have posed challenges for the motor industry, as has the design and manufacture of highly efficient, reliable, cost-effective, energy-saving, quiet, precisely controlled, and long-lasting electric motors. Suitable for...

Design of Electromechanical Products: A Systems Approach

Ali Jamnia
December 01, 2016

Design, development and life-cycle management of any electromechanical product is a complex task that requires a cross-functional team spanning multiple organizations, including design, manufacturing, and service. Ineffective design techniques, combined with poor communication between various teams...

Computer-Aided Inspection Planning: Theory and Practice

Abdulrahman Al-Ahmari, Emad Abouel Nasr, Osama Abdulhameed
November 21, 2016

The inspection process is one of the most important steps in manufacturing industries because it safeguards high quality products and customer satisfaction. Manual inspection may not provide the desired accuracy. This book introduces and implements a new methodology and develops the supporting...
