  • A First Course in the Finite Element Method

    A First Course in the Finite Element Analysis provides a simple, basic approach to the finite element method that can be understood by both undergraduate and graduate students. It does not have the usual prerequisites (such as structural analysis) required by most available texts in this area. The book is written primarily as a basic learning tool for the undergraduate student in civil and mechanical engineering whose main interest is in stress analysis and heat transfer. The text is geared toward those who want to apply the finite element method as a tool to solve practical physical problems. This revised fourth edition includes the addition of a large number of new problems (including SI problems), an appendix for mechanical and thermal properties, and more civil applications.

  • Advanced AC Electronics : Principles and Applications

    From the moment they open Advanced AC Electronics: Principles and Applications, readers will become actively involved in learning how to apply AC circuit techniques to electronics circuits that are interesting and actually do something useful! Rather than presenting AC electronics as a series of seemingly magical rules and incantations, this book integrates AC circuit theory tools with electronics, interweaves topics as needed, and introduces the use of circuit analysis tools on a just-in-time basis to support development of electronics circuits. It engages readers in applying circuit theory to a wide variety of passive and active electronics that respond to a sinusoidal signal with both a change in magnitude and a shift in the sine wave’s phase. Immediately upon introduction, each technique is applied to a host of examples, including: commercial electrical power production and distribution, industrial motor performance and control, audio systems, instrumentation, radio frequency, and communications circuits.
    Motors, rf and audio cables, loudspeakers, thyristors, transition and op amp amplifiers are also introduced early on, capturing attention while guiding readers in their examination of real-world responses to sinusoids. Level and rigor make Advanced AC Electronics an ideal choice for programs accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

  • AN INTRODUCTION TO PHYSICAL SCIENCE 11TH ED

    HOUGHTON MIFFLIN

    An Introduction to Physical Science presents a survey of the physical sciences–physics, chemistry, astronomy, meteorology, and geology–for non-science majors. Topics are treated both descriptively and quantitatively, providing flexibility for instructors who wish to emphasize a highly descriptive approach, a highly quantitative approach, or anything in between. The Eleventh Edition includes content and features that help students better visualize concepts, master basic math, and practice problem solving. In addition, a dynamic technology package accompanies the text

     

  • AN INTRODUCTION TO PHYSICAL SCIENCE 12 EDITION

    ZED BOOKS

    An Introduction to Physical Science, 12e, International Edition presents a survey of the physical sciences-physics, chemistry, astronomy, meteorology, and geology-for non-science majors. Topics are treated both descriptively and quantitatively, providing flexibility for instructors who wish to emphasize a highly descriptive approach, a highly quantitative approach, or anything in between. Time-tested pedagogical tools address the needs of a range of learning styles: concepts to be treated mathematically are consistently introduced from three perspectives (definition, word equation, symbol notation); Confidence Exercises follow in-text Examples, giving students an opportunity for immediate practice and reinforcement; and updated Spotlight On features use figures, photos, or flowcharts to visually summarize important topics.

  • AN INTRODUCTION TO PHYSICAL SCIENCE 8TH ED

    HOUGHTON MIFFLIN

    A textbook for a course of one or two semesters for first-year college students not majoring in science. Defines and explains physics, chemistry, astronomy, geology, and meteorology in the context of examples relating to the physical world. Emphasizing fundamental concepts includes both quantitative and qualitative approaches that instructors can combine or choose between; a heavily descriptive approach, for example, would use the Review Questions and Critical Thinking Questions but omit the Exercises. Revised from earlier editions (no dates noted) both in the material and the manner of presentation. Illustrated in color throughout. Teaching materials are available. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

  • ASTRONOMY: THE SOLAR SYSTEM AND BEYOND 6E

    CENGAGE LEARNING

    With their best-selling astronomy textbook, ASTRONOMY: THE SOLAR SYSTEM AND BEYOND, 6e, International Edition authors Mike Seeds and Dana Backman help you understand your place in the universe not just your location in space, but your role in the unfolding history of the physical universe. To achieve this goal, the authors focus on two central questions: What Are We?, which highlights your place as a planet dweller in an evolving universe, guiding you to better understand where we came from and how we formed, and How Do We Know? which provides insights into how the process of science can teach us more about what we are. Virtual Astronomy Labs, an online, interactive way for you to explore astronomy from your own computer is available for bundling with each new text.

     

  • CLASSICAL DYNAMICS OF PARTICLES AND SYSTEMS

    THOMSON

    This classical mechanics text provides a complete account of the classical mechanics of particles, systems of particles, and rigid bodies. The authors make extensive use of vector calculus to explore topics. Coverage also includes the Lagrangian formulation of mechanics. Modern notation and terminology are used throughout in support of the text’s objective: to facilitate the transition to the quantum theory of physics.
