Unified Design of Steel Structures 2nd Edition Louis F. Geschwindner

Unified Design of Steel Structures, 2nd Edition, presents a fresh look at steel design that is based, from its inception, on the concepts used by the Specification Committee to develop the unified provisions. The text is designed primarily for use in a single course in basic steel design, but may also be used in a second, building oriented course in steel design, depending on the coverage in the first course. This text is based on the 2010 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings. It addresses in a consistent way both LRFD and ASD design philosophies.

Key Features:

• Unified LRFD and ASD: The only text designed from the start to address the unified LRFD and ASD Specification.

• Emphasis on determining nominal strength so that an instructor can teach LRFD or ASD or both with little additional effort.

• Every example is completed for both LRFD and ASD with a presentation format that makes the distinction easy to observe.

• Consistent problem-solving procedure: All examples formatted to highlight appropriate steps in the process. Includes consistent problem-solving procedure in examples, to reinforce good problem-solving practices.

• LRFD and ASD Homework problems: Homework problems at the end of

each chapter are given so that either LRFD or ASD provisions may be assigned.

• Comparing ASD and LRFD: There are also problems designed to show

comparisons between ASD and LRFD solutions. These problems will show that in some instances one method might give a more economical design while in other instances the reverse is true.

7th Edition Roland E. Thomas, Albert J. Rosa, Gregory J. Toussaint

As an introduction to the analysis, design, and evaluation of Electric Circuits, this text focuses on developing the students design intuition and emphasizes the use of computers to assist in design and evaluation. Early introduction to circuit design motivates the student to create circuit solutions and optimize designs based on real-world constraints

Electric Power Systems 978-1-118-07479-4 243pp 2012 Hardcover

Electric Power Systems, Power Electronics and Electric Machines and Drives are a three-book series for the sequence of electric power electives taught in most large universities’ Electrical Engineering departments. These texts are based on the integrated curriculum developed over nearly 15 years of research in education in this field. Since the subject of Electric Power Systems encompasses a large and complex set of topics, a unique aspect of this book is a balanced approach in presenting as many topics as possible on a fundamental basis for a singlesemester course. Students see the big picture and learn the fundamentals at the same time. Sequencing of these topics is considered carefully to avoid repetition and to retain student and reader interest. However, instructors can rearrange the order for the most part, based on their own experiences and preferences.

Power Electronics 978-1-118-07480-0 270pp 2012 Hardcover

Key Features:

• Concise, balanced and fundamentals-based coverage of a broad range of topics

• Designed for undergraduates, for industry professionals, and/or graduate research

• Updated with modern application examples relevant to renewable energy and the smart grid’

Introductory Mathematics for Engineering Applications Preliminary Edition Kuldip S. Rattan, Nathan Klingbeil

Rattan’s Introductory Mathematics for Engineering Applications is designed is to improve student retention, motivation and success through applicationdriven, just-in-time engineering math instruction. It is intended to be taught by engineering faculty, not math faculty, so the emphasis is on using math to solve engineering problems, not on derivations and theory. The book is a product of four NSF grants to develop and disseminate a new approach to engineering mathematics education. The authors have developed a course that does just this, and have recruited faculty at more than two dozen institutions to pilot aspects of this course in their own curricula. This approach covers only the salient math topics actually used in core engineering courses, including physics, statics, dynamics, electric circuits and computer programming. More importantly, the course replaces traditional math prerequisites for the above core courses, so that students can advance in the engineering curriculum without first completing the required calculus sequence. The result has shifted the traditional emphasis on math prerequisite requirements to an emphasis on engineering motivation for math, and has had an overwhelming impact on engineering student retention.

Brief Table of Contents Straight Lines in Engineering; Quadratic Equations in Engineering; Trigonometry in Engineering; Two-Dimensional Vectors in Engineering; Complex Numbers in Engineering; Sinusoids in Engineering; Systems of Equations in Engineering; Derivatives in Engineering; Integration in Engineering; Differential Equations in Engineering 978-1-118-11409-4 388pp 2011 Paper

Key Features:

• Ideally, this text will serve as a a primary text for a first-year engineering math course, which would allow students to advance through the first two years of their academic program without first completing the required calculus sequence.

• This course doesn’t replace calculus. It simply allows students to advance

through introductory engineering courses while they gain the maturity and motivation to succeed in calculus at a slower pace.

The use of experimental design in developing products that are robust to environmental factors and other sources of variability is illustrated. The use of experimental design early in the product cycle can substantially reduce development lead time and cost, leading to processes and products that perform better in the field and have higher reliability than those developed using other approaches.

Engineering Design Graphics 2nd Edition James Leake


Providing a clear, concise treatment of the essential topics addressed in a modern engineering design graphics course, this text concentrates on teaching hand-drawing as a skill and a vital component of the design process. Unlike texts that reduce drawing to a computer-based task, Leake and Borgerson’s book emphasizes the role of sketching in conceptualizing a design solution. This reflects the growing trend in engineering graphics courses, in which handdrawing is used for developing a design and computer tools are used for the final iterations. By providing a brief, skills-based approach, this reasonably priced volume - which includes several hundred sketching problems - is well positioned to offer a compelling alternative to the large volumes by Giesecke and Bertoline. Alongside its coverage of hand-drawing skills, this text also provides a chapter on computer-aided design software, with an emphasis on parametric solid

The 5th Edition of Systems Analysis and Design continues to offer a hands-on approach to SA&D while focusing on the core set of skills that all analysts must possess. Building on their experience as professional systems analysts and award-winning teachers, authors Dennis, Wixom, and Roth capture the experience of developing and analyzing systems in a way that students can understand and apply. With Systems Analysis and Design, 5th Edition, students will leave the course with experience that is a rich foundation for further work as a systems analyst.

Key Features:

• Focus on doing SAD: After presenting the how and what of each major

technique, the text guides you through practice problems and invites you to use the technique in a project.

as templates that students can apply to their own work, and Concepts in Action examples that describe how real companies succeeded (and failed) in performing SAD activities.

• Provides a structured approach to SAD while also integrating object-

oriented techniques as appropriate, for example, the development of use cases is presented as the first step in process modeling. In addition, a final chapter on the major elements of UML 2.0 can be used as an introduction to OO SAD.
