Structural Dynamics, Theory and Computation, Sixth Edition Bookware
 
Mario Paz, Young Hoon Kim - Structural Dynamics, Theory and Computation, Sixth Edition

Springer, 2019
pdf, 629 pages, english
ISBN: 978-3-319-94742-6

Structural Dynamics, Theory and Computation, Sixth Edition

The sixth edition of Structural Dynamics: Theory and Computation is the complete and comprehensive text in the field. It presents modern methods of analysis and techniques adaptable to computer programming clearly and easily. The book is ideal as a text for advanced undergraduates or graduate students taking a first course in structural dynamics. It is arranged in such a way that it can be used for a one- or two-semester course, or span the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition, this text will serve the practicing engineer as a primary reference.


The text differs from the standard approach of other presentations in which topics are ordered by their mathematical complexity. This text is organized by the type of structural modeling. The author simplifies the subject by presenting a single degree-of-freedom system in the first chapters, then moves to systems with many degrees-of-freedom in the following chapters. Finally, the text moves to applications of the first chapters and special topics in structural dynamics.

This revised textbook intends to provide enhanced learning materials for students to learn structural dynamics, ranging from basics to advanced topics, including their application. When a line-by-line programming language is included with solved problems, students can learn course materials easily and visualize the solved problems using a program. Among several programming languages, MATLAB® has been adopted by many academic institutions across several disciplines. Many educators and students in the U.S. and many international institutions can readily access MATLAB, which has an appropriate programming language to solve and simulate problems in the textbook. It effectively allows matrix manipulations and plotting of data. Therefore, multi-degree-of freedom problems can be solved in conjunction with the finite element method using MATLAB.

Numerical Methods in Engineering and Science: C, C++, and MATLAB Bookware
 
B. S. Grewal - Numerical Methods in Engineering and Science: C, C++, and MATLAB

Mercury Learning and Information, 2019
pdf, 951 pages, english
ISBN: 978-1-68392-128-8

This book is intended as an introduction to numerical methods for scientists and engineers. Providing an excellent balance of theoretical and applied topics, it shows the numerical methods used with C, C++, and MATLAB.


The limitations of analytical methods in practical applications have led scientists and engineers to evolve numerical methods. We know that exact methods often fail in drawing plausible inferences from a given set of tabulated data or in finding roots of transcendental equations or in solving non-linear differential equations. There are many more such situations where analytical methods are unable to produce desirable results. Even if analytical solutions are available, these are not amenable to direct numerical interpretation.

The aim of numerical analysis is therefore, to provide constructive methods for obtaining answers to such problems in a numerical form.

With the advent of high speed computers and increasing demand for numerical solution to various problems, numerical techniques have become indispensible tools in the hands of engineers and scientists.

The input information is rarely exact since it comes from some measurement or the other and the method also introduces further error. As such, the error in the final result may be due to an error in the initial data or in the method or both. Our effort will be to minimize these errors, so as to get the best possible results. We therefore begin by explaining various kinds of approximations and errors which may occur in a problem and derive some results on error propagation in numerical calculations.

Control Engineering & Control Engineering: MATLAB Exercises

This book offers fundamental information on the analysis and synthesis of continuous and sampled data control systems. It includes all the required preliminary materials (from mathematics, signals and systems) that are needed in order to understand control theory, so readers do not have to turn to other textbooks. Sampled data systems have recently gained increasing importance, as they provide the basis for the analysis and design of computer-controlled systems. Though the book mainly focuses on linear systems, input/output approaches and state space descriptions are also provided. Control structures such as feedback, feed forward, internal model control, state feedback control, and the Youla parameterization approach are discussed, while a closing section outlines advanced areas of control theory. Though the book also contains selected examples, a related exercise book provides Matlab/Simulink exercises for all topics discussed in the textbook, helping readers to understand the theory and apply it in order to solve control problems. Thanks to this combination, readers will gain a basic grasp of systems and control, and be able to analyze and design continuous and discrete control systems.  


The MATLAB exercise book accompanies the textbook Control Engineering, providing a platform for students to practice problem solving in the analysis and design of continuous and discrete control problems reflected in the main textbook. The book starts off with a brief introduction to MATLAB, control toolbox and Simulink. Subsequent chapters include a short theoretical summary of the topic followed by exercises on solving complex problems using MATLAB commands. These exercises are ideal for students in computer laboratory classes.

Since most chemical processing applications are conducted either partially or totally in the fluid phase, chemical engineers need mastery of fluid mechanics. Such knowledge is especially valuable in the biochemical, chemical, energy, fermentation, materials, mining, petroleum, pharmaceuticals, polymer, and waste-processing industries.


Fluid Mechanics for Chemical Engineers: with Microfluidics, CFD, and COMSOL Multiphysics 5, Third Edition, systematically introduces fluid mechanics from the perspective of the chemical engineer who must understand actual physical behavior and solve real-world problems. Building on the book that earned Choice Magazine’s Outstanding Academic Title award, this edition also gives a comprehensive introduction to the popular COMSOL Multiphysics 5 software.

This third edition contains extensive coverage of both microfluidics and computational fluid dynamics, systematically demonstrating CFD through detailed examples using COMSOL Multiphysics 5 and ANSYS Fluent. The chapter on turbulence now presents valuable CFD techniques to investigate practical situations such as turbulent mixing and recirculating flows.

Part I offers a clear, succinct, easy-to-follow introduction to macroscopic fluid mechanics, including physical properties; hydrostatics; basic rate laws; and fundamental principles of flow through equipment. Part II turns to microscopic fluid mechanics:
  • Differential equations of fluid mechanics
  • Viscous-flow problems, some including polymer processing
  • Laplace’s equation; irrotational and porous-media flows
  • Nearly unidirectional flows, from boundary layers to lubrication, calendering, and thin-film applications
  • Turbulent flows, showing how the k-ε method extends conventional mixing-length theory
  • Bubble motion, two-phase flow, and fluidization
  • Non-Newtonian fluids, including inelastic and viscoelastic fluids
  • Microfluidics and electrokinetic flow effects, including electroosmosis, electrophoresis, streaming potentials, and electroosmotic switching
  • Computational fluid mechanics with ANSYS Fluent and COMSOL Multiphysics
Nearly 100 completely worked practical examples include 12 new COMSOL 5 examples: boundary layer flow, non-Newtonian flow, jet flow, die flow, lubrication, momentum diffusion, turbulent flow, and others. More than 300 end-of-chapter problems of varying complexity are presented, including several from University of Cambridge exams. The author covers all material needed for the fluid mechanics portion of the professional engineer’s exam.
