The report also demonstrates how these technologies have been used in applications such as rapid virtual prototyping, design of local and supervisory control algorithms, and deployment of models in support of commissioning and operation. The target audience is the building energy research community, design firms and energy service companies, equipment and tool manufacturers, as well as students in building energy.< Less
I do like CFD, VOL.1, Second Edition By Katate Masatsuka
Paperback: List Price: $29.99 $22.49 | You Save: 25%
Prints in 3-5 business days
Version 2.5 (Sep. 2017): This is a unique and highly technical book on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The first half talks about mathematical foundations and governing equations ranging from... More > simple model equations (advection/diffusion, Euler-Tricomi, Cauchy-Riemann, Burgers, etc.) used for algorithm development to the incompressible/compressible Euler and Navier-Stokes equations in various forms with complete Jacobians and eigen-structures in 1, 2, and 3 dimensions. The other half talks about general methods for deriving exact solutions (separation of variables, transformation, superposition, etc.) and numerous exact solutions that can be readily used for accuracy verification of a CFD code (Ringleb's flow, Fraenkel's flow, boundary layer, viscous shock structure, etc.). This book can be a very useful resource for students studying basics of CFD as well as researchers/practitioners in CFD. - PDF version is available at [Note: PDF does not contain some contents of the Printed version.]< Less
Analog IC Design - An Intuitive Approach By Gabriel Alfonso Rincón-Mora, Ph.D.
Paperback: List Price: $49.99 $34.99 | You Save: 30%
Prints in 3-5 business days
This slide book presents, discusses, and shows how to understand, develop, and use semiconductor devices to design analog integrated circuits (ICs). The underlying objective is to explain and... More > illustrate how to model, analyze, and design analog ICs using bipolar and MOS technologies. The material places emphasis on basic understanding and critical thinking, in other words, on intuitive grasp of how semiconductor devices work individually and collectively in microelectronic circuits. Ultimately, the material seeks to furnish the reader with a physical and intuitive view of solid-state circuits that transcends rigorous mathematical and algebraic formulations to empower the reader with the tools necessary to design innovative and complex ICs.< Less

Mechanical Vibrations By Bob Williams
eBook (PDF): $25.00
This textbook is intended for a one-semester course in Mechanical Vibrations for any Mechanical Engineering curriculum. Covered are the modeling and solution of 1-dof linear first- and second-order... More > vibrational systems. Free and forced, undamped and damped systems are covered. Also covered are simple harmonic motion, phasors, logarithmic decrement, vibrational resonance, transmissibility, state-space methods, and general forcing functions. There is an introduction to the modeling and solutions of multi-dof vibrational systems. Throughout there is an emphasis on numerical examples and alternate solution approaches. MATLAB Software is used as a tool for vibrational motion solutions, plots, and animations throughout.< Less
Post-Tensioned Concrete: Principles and Practice, Third Edition By K. Dirk Bondy & Bryan Allred
eBook (PDF): $79.99
The book is a combination of history, academic notes intended for use at the university level, design examples straight from actual jobs that we have designed and practical applications and detailing... More > intended for the practicing engineer. Chapter 1 describes the history of post-tensioned concrete in the United States as only Ken Bondy can tell it. Chapters 2 through 8 are currently the notes that Dirk Bondy uses to teach Design of Prestressed Concrete Structures at UCLA and Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Chapters 9 through 13 are practical design examples in which we attempt to address many of the decisions faced by practicing engineers on typical projects including proper computer analysis and modeling techniques. Chapters 13 and 14 contain the true art of detailing and observing the construction of post-tensioned concrete. This knowledge was obtained over many years of working on our own projects and from listening and learning from the men who were the pioneers of post-tensioned concrete.< Less
