FROM THE PREFACE In the years since the first edition, I have continued to consider ways in which the texts could be improved. In this regard, I researched several topics including how people learn (learning styles, etc.), how the brain functions in storing and retrieving information, and the fundamentals of memory systems. Many of the changes incorporated in this second edition are a result of this research. The changes were field-tested during a... more...

Kinematics and Dynamics of Mechanical Systems: Implementation in MATLAB® and SimMechanics®, Second Edition combines the fundamentals of mechanism kinematics, synthesis, statics and dynamics with real-world applications, and offers step-by-step instruction on the kinematic, static, and dynamic analyses and synthesis of equation systems. Written for students with no working knowledge of MATLAB and SimMechanics, the text provides... more...

Provides plans and instructions for storage projects for the garage, workshop, entry, kitchen, bathroom, living room, dining room, study, and bedroom

Concrete-filled stainless steel tubular (CFSST) columns are increasingly used in modern composite construction due to their high strength, high ductility, high corrosion resistance, high durability and aesthetics and ease of maintenance. Thin-walled CFSST columns are characterized by the different strain-hardening behavior of stainless steel in tension and in compression, local buckling of stainless steel tubes and concrete confinement.... more...

This book presents essential new governance structures to embrace and regulate smart mobility modes. Drawing on a range of case studies, it paves the way for new approaches to governing future transportation systems.  Over the past decades, Information and Communication Technologies have enabled the development of new mobility solutions that have completely redefined traditional and... more...


This text explains the process of the design of product electronic enclosures.  These products typically contain a printed circuit board.  The text takes the reader from the original idea for a product, through the shipment in quantity to a customer.  For the product enclosure designer, this proceeds through design layout, material selection, prototype building, testing, and ongoing design improvement. The... more...

This book examines the application of strut-and-tie models (STM) for the design of structural concrete. It presents state-of-the-art information, from fundamental theories to practical engineering applications, and also provides innovative solutions for many design problems that are not otherwise achievable using the traditional methods.

Engineering is where human knowledge meets real-world problems—and solves them. It's the source of some of our greatest inventions, from the catapult to the jet engine. Marshall Brain, creator of the How Stuff Works series and a professor at the Engineering Entrepreneurs Program at NCSU, provides a detailed look at 250 milestones in the discipline. He covers the various areas, including chemical, aerospace, and computer engineering,... more...

Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are the four most influential companies on the planet. Just about everyone thinks they know how they got there. Just about everyone is wrong.  For all that’s been written about the Four over the last two decades, no one has captured their power and staggering success as insightfully as Scott Galloway. Instead of buying the myths these compa­nies broadcast, Galloway asks fundamental questions. How did... more...

Providing engineers with the tools and skills  to survive and become successful in the work place Gives experience-based, highly realistic guidance to a cross-section of young and even established engineers Delivers practical guidance and acts as a handy resource so that lessons do not have to be learned the hard way with numerous errors, and costly problems Includes real world examples and case studies from a 45 year veteran... more...
