Design Engineer's Reference Guide: Mathematics, Mechanics, and Thermodynamics (Paperback)Keith L. Richards (author)
- We can order this
Author Keith L. Richards believes that design engineers spend only a small fraction of time actually designing and drawing, and the remainder of their time finding relevant design information for a specific method or problem. He draws on his own experience as a mechanical engineering designer to offer assistance to other practicing and student engineers facing the same struggle. Design Engineer's Reference Guide: Mathematics, Mechanics, and Thermodynamics provides engineers with a roadmap for navigating through common situations or dilemmas.
This book starts off by introducing reference information on the coverage of differential and integral calculus, Laplace's transforms, determinants, and matrices. It provides a numerical analysis on numerical methods of integration, Newton-Raphson's methods, the Jacobi iterative method, and the Gauss-Seidel method. It also contains reference information, as well as examples and illustrations that reinforce the topics of most chapter subjects.
A companion to the Design Engineer's Handbook and Design Engineer's Case Studies and Examples, this textbook covers a range of basic engineering concepts and common applications including:
* Numerical analysis
* Statics and kinematics
* Mechanical vibrations
* Control system modeling
* Basic thermodynamics
* Fluid mechanics and linkages
An entry-level text for students needing to understand the underlying principles before progressing to a more advanced level, Design Engineer's Reference Guide: Mathematics, Mechanics, and Thermodynamics is also a basic reference for mechanical, manufacturing, and design engineers.

"Designers usually need a quick reference/validation for proposed design. This second volume will, like the first, provide a good, basic collection of math, mechanics and foundational topics they need for project work. Good resource for interdisciplinary design terms."
--Ronald L. Huston, Mechanical Engineering, University of Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
"It would appear that the book addresses a large part of what mechanical design engineers need for their day-to-day work... I like the practical treatment of the subject. Key points are explained simply and clearly. There are many worked examples to illustrate the application of the theory. The book would be suitable for engineers wishing to refresh their knowledge of the topics covered."
--Duc Pham, University of Birmingham, UK
