The Habitat for Humanity Charlotte Construction Manual has been formally adopted by the Board of Directors as its Approved Building Methods. It includes more than 450 pages, over 570 photographs, 115... More > detailed construction drawings, and step by step instructions on tasks that HFH Charlotte regularly asks its volunteers to complete. The manual is very specific for how HFH Charlotte builds its homes (both Standard and Historic styles). Even if your affiliate doesn't build exactly like we do in Charlotte, we hope that you find portions of the manual helpful. It is designed to encourage leadership as well as a high level of productivity, efficiency, and quality. Chapters include: Floor Framing, Layout, Framing, Vinyl Siding, Exterior Trim, Insulation, Drywall, Painting, Interior Trim, Storage Shed & Appendix. Preview is in color. Book can be purchased in color or black and white.

This book presents techniques for moving machines very rapidly. The main focus is on intelligently designing the reference command that is used to drive the system. Numerous example systems, such as... More > cranes, robots, and satellites are discussed.< Less
This primer addresses the basic concepts of model-based systems engineering. It covers the Model, Language, Behavior, Process, Architecture, and Verification and Validation. It is a call to consider... More > the foundational principles behind those concepts. It is not designed to present novel insights into MBSE so much as to provide a guided tour of the touchstones of systems design. It is a guide to the new MBSE acolyte and a reminder to the experienced practitioner. It is our hope that you find this primer valuable. We welcome your comments and suggestions about improving it. Much of what we have learned about how it should be organized and presented has come from thoughtful contributions from the readers of the 1st edition.< Less
A complete set of lecture notes for a one-semester, graduate-level dynamics course. Topics include vector and tensor kinematic principles; point mass kinematics; Newton's principles for a point... More > mass; rigid body attitude and kinematics; rigid body dynamics; constant mass continuous systems; analytical kinematics; analytical dynamics; and dynamic modeling of continuous systems.
The notes are presented in a novel and unique 1-page, 1-topic format. Many key principles are developed in a new and rigorous way, and careful attention is paid to establish a consistent and unambiguous notation.< Less
This book provides a smooth transition from a course in elementary ordinary differential equations to more advanced topics in a first course in partial differential equations and Fourier Series. It... More > is intended for students of engineering, mathematics, and physics, with emphasis on applications. The new topics in this edition offer the instructors the option to teach a theory oriented course on partial differential equations or a course with heavier emphasis on Fourier series and boundary value problems. Beyond the core material for a basic course on partial differential equations, the book includes a number of more specialized topics that the instructor can cover or use as research projects at his or her discretion. The book contains hundreds of completely worked out examples to help students assimilate the new topics. The style is easy to follow and speaks directly to the reader. The book comes with a companion student solutions manual that the reader can download for free from the author’s website.< Less
These notes are based on lectures given by the first author to students in the course on elementary differential equations over many years, and have been
extensively class tested. They can be used as... More > a stand alone text or as supplement to a standard text. Our aim
is to make the subject more interesting by avoiding the usual labor intensive methods in favor of more powerful and elegant methods such as the well known operator methods, rarely described in standard texts. Another example is the use of Leibniz's theorem in power series
solutions. We include many applications and plenty of exercises.< Less
Welcome to VP Command! You are about to learn the most powerful design, detailing, estimating, and marketing tool in our industry. The lessons contained in this manual are designed to introduce you... More > to the basics of VP Command (VPC) and to gradually increase your skills.
VP Command is usually taught in conjunction with our Product Seminar. The products and value engineering you will learn there will quickly transfer to VPC. As with any new software program there will be a learning curve. As you increase your knowledge do not hesitate to contact a Varco Pruden expert. Your service center personnel are the experts on actual building projects. If you need VP Command assistance please contact our Software Support Group at: 877.874.3579 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org .
