In Fall 2003, five teachers in the College of Engineering at the University of South Florida contributed questions for a Fundamentals of Engineering Question of the Day website... More > (http://fe.eng.usf.edu). On this website, everyday a question posed with multiple choices is selected randomly from a pool of questions. The user gets the feedback about the choice he/she makes, and can seek a hint to answer the question. Over the years, we have received queries from our website visitors if we could provide them with the complete solutions to all the questions in the test bank. We are now presenting this information to you at a nominal charge as a soft-cover book. The book is divided into sections that have been established for the Fundamental of Engineering (General Engineering) examination by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES).< Less

The Dueling Loops of the Political Powerplace: Why Progressives Are Stymied and How They Can Find Their Way Again By Jack Harich
Paperback: $12.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
Contrary to popular myth, it is possible for progressives to take an analytical approach to solving difficult social problems and win. Using the sustainability problem as a running example, this book... More > demonstrates how. The same key tool Limits to Growth used, simulation modeling, is applied. However, unlike Limits to Growth this book explores the social side of the problem, rather than the technical side, to find the fundamental cause of the very strong change resistance civilization has encountered. The root cause turns out to lie in a surprisingly simple social structure called the Dueling Loops of the Political Powerplace. The book explains in layman’s terms how the Dueling Loops model works, where the intuitively attractive but low leverage point is that progressives are presently pushing on, and where the high leverage points are they must push on instead. The end result is a whole new way of thwinking. For further information on this book and project, please see thwink.org.< Less

Agency and social structure in Human Factors By Roland Gasser
Paperback: $14.50
Ships in 3-5 business days
Today’s work environments are getting ever more adaptive and dynamic. The underlying technologies are highly complex and distributed. As a consequence, both the theoretical fundaments and the... More > methodological toolbox of Human Factors become challenged. By drawing on the field of production planning and scheduling (PPS) in manufacturing, this book is making explicit how Human Factors fails to fully account for many problems related to this type of environment. It is proposing a philosophical reorientation - based on critical realist thought - through a focus on agency and social structures as central concepts for the understanding of human behavior. The new ontological fundament then leads to the formulation of a critical realist theory/methods package for Human Factors. Through the integration of agency and social structure into our thinking about technology, Human Factors interventions will become more tuned to the networked and globalized work contexts we are increasingly engaged with.< Less

Bell P-39 Airacobra Pilot's Flight Operating Instructions By United States Army Airforc and Royal Air Force
Paperback: $19.95

The P-39 Airacobra was designed by Bell’s brilliant engineer, Robert Woods. The plane featured a mid-engine design, intended to allow it to carry a lethal 37mm cannon in the nose. An... More > all-metal, low-wing design, the P-39 was the first fighter to feature tricycle landing gear. The plane debuted in 1939, and proved impressive in tests. Yet the aircraft lacked a large fuel capacity that limited range, and pilots learned that its performance dropped off markedly at altitudes above 17,000 feet. Despite this, over 9,500 P-39s were built. Almost half were sent to the USSR, where Soviet pilots, flying low-level attack missions, achieved devastating results. Ace Alexander Pokryshkin flew the plane exclusively and scored nearly 60 kills.

The F-82 “Twin Mustang” was conceived during WWII as a long-range fighter escort. Like the P-51, it was designed by North American's brilliant engineer, Edgar Schmued. The F-82 utilized... More > two extended P-51 fuselages, mounted to a newly- designed center wing and tail. The plane incorporated new propeller assemblies and a unique, four-wheel landing gear. In short, while the plane would be cosmetically similar to the Mustang, in reality it was an entirely new beast. The F-82 wasn’t ready before WWII ended, but the program escaped cancellation, and planes entered operational service in 1948. The F-82 became the last piston- powered fighter ordered by the USAF. It flew as an escort for SAC B-29s, and with distinction as a night fighter in Korea. It was retired in 1953. Originally printed by the USAF and North American, this pilot’s handbook provides a glimpse inside the cockpit of this warbird.
