Basic Engineering Mathematics, Fourth Edition

Unlike most engineering maths texts, this book does not assume a firm grasp of GCSE maths, yet unlike low-level general maths texts the content is tailored for the needs of engineers. The result is a unique text written for engineering students, but which takes a starting point below GCSE level.Basic Engineering Mathematicsis therefore ideal for students of a wide range of abilities, and especially for those who find the theoretical side of mathematics difficult.John Bird's approach is based on numerous worked examples, supported by 575 worked problems and followed by 1000 further problems. The content has been designed to match current Level 2 courses, including intermediate GNVQ, Engineering GCSE and the new specifications for BTEC First.Level 3 students who struggle with their maths will also find this book particularly useful. With this in mind, all topics within the compulsory units of the AVCE (Applied Mathematics for Engineering) and the new specifications for BTEC National (Mathematics for Technicians) are covered.

Higher Order Finite Element Methods

The finite element method has always been a mainstay for solving engineering problems numerically. The most recent developments in the field clearly indicate that its future lies in higher-order methods, particularly in higher-orderhp-adaptive schemes. These techniques respond well to the increasing complexity of engineering simulations and satisfy the overall trend of simultaneous resolution of phenomena with multiple scales.Higher-Order Finite Element Methodsprovides an thorough survey of intrinsic techniques and the practical know-how needed to implement higher-order finite element schemes. It presents the basic priniciples of higher-order finite element methods and the technology of conforming discretizations based on hierarchic elements in spacesH^1,H(curl) andH(div). The final chapter provides an example of an efficient and robust strategy for automatic goal-orientedhp-adaptivity.Although it will still take some time for fully automatichp-adaptive finite element methods to become standard engineering tools, their advantages are clear. In straightforward prose that avoids mathematical jargon whenever possible, this book paves the way for fully realizing the potential of these techniques and putting them at the disposal of practicing engineers.

Piping & pipeline calculations manual

The integrity of a piping system depends on the considerations and principles used in design, construction, and maintenance of the system. Piping systems are made of many components such as pipes, flanges, supports, gaskets, bolts, valves, strainers, flexibles, and expansion joints. These components can be made in a variety of materials, in different types and sizes, and may be manufactured to common national standards or according a manufacturers proprietary item. This book provides engineers and designers with a quick reference guide to the calculations, codes, and standards. The lack of commentary, or historical perspective, regarding the codes and standards requirements for piping design and construction is an obstacle to the designer, manufacturer, fabricator, supplier, erector, examiner, inspector, and owner who want to provide a safe and economical piping system. An intensive manual, this book will utilize hundreds of calculation and examples based on of 40 years of personal experiences of the author as both an engineer and instructor.

An introduction to the finite element method 2nd edition

This second edition has the same objective as the first, namely an introduction to the finite element method as applied to linear, one & two-dimensional problems of engineering and applied sciences. The revisions are mainly in the form of additional details , expansion of the topics discussed, and the addition of a few topics to make the coverage more complete.The major organizational change from the first edition is the division of its five chapters into fourteen chapters . These chapters are grouped into four parts. This re-organization should aid instructors in selecting suitable material for courses. Other organizational changes include putting problem sets at the end of chapters providing a chapter summary for each and reviewing pertitent equations and text in each chapter instead of referring to several chapters back.

Prime Numbers

The recent spate of popular books on the Riemann hypothesis, which concerns the distribution of prime numbers and is the greatest unsolved math problem since Andrew Wiles solved Fermat's famous last theorem 10 years ago, augurs well for this directory from British author Wells (The Penguin Dictionary of Curious and Interesting Numbers). Arranged alphabetically, the text covers such topics as gaps between primes, Mersenne primes (primes of the form 2 to the nth power minus 1), palindromic primes, record primes (the largest "not of a special and easily tested form" as of 2003 has 10,000 digits), repunits (primes that consist exclusively of the digit 1), "sexy" primes (primes that differ by six) and twin primes. For James Bond fans, there's even mention of "007" primes. Mathematicians who contributed to prime number theory, including Leonhard Euler, G.H. Hardy and A.M. Legendre, receive separate entries. While some of the math is fairly sophisticated, lay readers will find plenty that's readily comprehensible. A bibliography and list of Web sites point the way for those wishing to explore primes in greater depth.
