The Mechanical Design Process
The fourth edition of The Mechanical Design Process combines a practical overview of the design process with case material and real-life engineering insights. Ullman's work as an innovative designer comes through consistently, and has made this book a favorite with readers. This book conveys the 'flavor' of design, addressing both traditional engineering topics as well as real-world issues like creative thinking, synthesis of ideas, visualization, teamwork, sense of customer needs and product success factors, and the financial aspects of design alternatives, in a practical and motivating manner. New in this edition are examples from industry and over twenty online templates that help students prepare complete and consistent assignments while learning the material. This text is appropriate primarily for the Senior Design course taken by mechanical engineering students, though it can also be used in design courses offered earlier in the curriculum. Working engineers also find it to be a readable, practical overview of the modern design process.

Numerical Methods for Engineers
Instructors love Numerical Methods for Engineers because it makes teaching easy! Students love it because it is written for them - with clear explanations and examples throughout. The text features a broad array of applications that span all engineering disciplines. The sixth edition retains the successful instructional techniques of earlier editions. Chapra and Canale's unique approach opens each part of the text with sections called Motivation, Mathematical Background, and Orientation. This prepares the student for upcoming problems in a motivating and engaging manner. Each part closes with an Epilogue containing Trade-Offs, Important Relationships and Formulas, and Advanced Methods and Additional References. Much more than a summary, the Epilogue deepens understanding of what has been learned and provides a peek into more advanced methods. Approximately 20 percent of the problems are new or revised in this edition. The expanded breadth of engineering disciplines covered is especially evident in the problems, which now cover such areas as biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Users will find use of software packages, specifically MATLAB[registered], Excel[registered] with VBA and Mathcad[registered]. This includes material on developing MATLAB[registered] m-files and VBA macros.

Aerodynamics of Missiles and Rockets
Proven techniques for deriving the basic aerodynamic properties of axisymmetric-shaped bodies with the minimum amount of time and effort Aerodynamics of Missiles and Rockets describes the basic aerodynamics model used in the widespread Analytical Initial Missile Synthesis (AIMS) computer code for symmetric missile and rocket sizing and design. It is a collection of empirical, semi-empirical and theoretical aerodynamics engineering methods for a component build-up approach to aerodynamics prediction. This book serves as an on-the-job application manual and desk reference for the prediction of basic aerodynamics. It can also be used for courses in applied aerodynamics in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering programs and for short courses in industry and government. This practical guide provides an alternative approach to utilizing numerous, complex, stand-alone computer codes, but is also a good complement to these codes. The book offers insight into the methods and techniques used to derive answers and correct magnitudes generated by code, giving confidence in final results. Features a Microsoft Excel file that automates calculations and provides complete tabulated output for missile and rocket geometry and design, and design and for rapid assessments of aerodynamic properties based on changes in geometry or flight conditions On-the-job application manual and desk reference for the prediction of basic aerodynamics Combination of long-standing, empirical and semi-empirical techniques with classical aerodynamic theory A component build-up approach utilized, with body and wing/tail surface aerodynamics determined separately and then combined for total configuration zero-lift drag, lift, center of pressure location, and pitching moment
