Analysing Design Thinking: Studies of Cross-Cultural Co-Creation

Bo T. Christensen, Linden J. Ball, Kim Halskov
July 18, 2017

The scientific analysis of design thinking continues to burgeon and is of considerable interest to academic scholars and design practitioners across many disciplines. This research tradition has generated a growing corpus of studies concerning how designers think during the creation of innovative...

Computer Aided Design: A Conceptual Approach

Jayanta Sarkar
July 01, 2017

Optimize Designs in Less Time An essential element of equipment and system design, computer aided design (CAD) is commonly used to simulate potential engineering problems in order to help gauge the magnitude of their effects. Useful for producing 3D models or drawings with the selection of...

Introduction to Design Engineering: Systematic Creativity and Management

W. Ernst Eder, Stanislav Hosnedl
June 21, 2017

Designing engineering products – technical systems and/or transformation processes – requires a range of information, know-how, experience, and engineering analysis, to find an optimal solution. Creativity and open-mindedness can be greatly assisted by systematic design engineering, which will...

The Role of the Chemist in Automotive Design

H. K. Phlegm
June 14, 2017

From the development of polymers that make cars lighter to fuels that make them run cleaner, the chemist’s role in the automotive industry has evolved to be one that is more outside the laboratory than in it. Drawing on the author’s 20 years of experience in vehicle design and laboratory experience...

Innovative Solutions: What Designers Need to Know for Today's Emerging Markets

Apala Lahiri Chavan, Girish V. Prabhu
June 07, 2017

Expanding into emerging markets brings with it a specific set of challenges for designing products and services. Not only do cultural differences play a role in what, how, and why customers behave the way they do, but existing technologies, distribution channels, and the wants and needs of...

Instrumentation Design Studies

Ernest Doebelin
May 22, 2017

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...

Challenges for Technology Innovation: An Agenda for the Future: Proceedings of the International Conference on Sustainable Smart Manufacturing (S2M 2016), October 20-22, 2016, Lisbon, Portugal

Fernando Moreira da Silva, Helena Maria Bártolo, Paulo Bártolo, Rita Almendra, Filipa Roseta, Henrique Amorim Almeida, Ana Cristina Lemos
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...
