Aerodynamics for Engineers 6th International Edition
Revised to reflect the technological advances and modern application in aerodynamics, this edition merges fundamental fluid mechanics, experimental techniques, and computational fluid dynamics techniques to build a solid foundation for students in aerodynamic applications from low-speed flight through hypersonic flight.
Shigley’s Mechanical Engineering Design is intended for students beginning the study of mechanical engineering design. Students will find that the text inherently directs them into familiarity with both the basics of design decisions and the standards of industrial components. It combines the straightforward focus on fundamentals that instructors have come to expect, with a modern emphasis on design and new applications. The tenth edition maintains the well-designed approach that has made this book the standard in machine design for nearly 50 years. Specific statistical material pertinent to the 10th edition was retained and integrated within the sections that utilize statistics. A few examples are: The mathematical relationship between the design factor and reliability is covered in the first chapter of Introduction to Mechanical Design where the design factor and reliability are defined and discussed. In Sec. 2-2, The Statistical Significance of Material Properties, is totally self-contained. The statistical Weibull distribution is necessary in the chapter on Rolling-Contact Bearings and is completely contained within this chapter.

For undergraduate Mechanics of Materials courses in Mechanical, Civil, and Aerospace Engineering departments. Containing Hibbeler’s hallmark student-oriented features, this text is in four-color with a photorealistic art program designed to help students visualize difficult concepts. A clear, concise writing style and more examples than any other text further contribute to students’ ability to master the material. This edition can be packaged with MasteringEngineering, an innovative online program created to emulate the instructor’s office-hour environment, guiding students through engineering concepts from Mechanics of Materials with self-paced individualized coaching. Teaching and Learning Experience To provide a better teaching and learning experience, for both instructors and students, this program will provide: * Individualized Coaching: Available with MasteringEngineering, an online program that emulates the instructor’s office-hour environment using self-paced individualized coaching. * Problem Solving: A large variety of problem types from a broad range of engineering disciplines, stress practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice, varying levels of difficulty, and problems that involve solution by computer. * Visualization: This text is in four-color with a photorealistic art program designed to help students visualize difficult concepts. * Review and Student Support: A thorough end of chapter review provides students with a concise tool for reviewing chapter contents. * Accuracy: The accuracy of the text and problem solutions has been thoroughly checked by four other parties.
John Wiley Sons, Inc. is proud to announce an important new series of textbooks The MIT Series in Materials Science and Engineering. In response to the growing economic and technological importance of polymers, ceramics, and semi-conductors, many materials science and engineering departments are changing and expanding their curricula. The advent of new courses calls for the development of new textbooks that teach the principles of materials science and engineering as they apply to all the classes of materials. The MIT Series in Materials Science and Engineering is designed to fill the needs of this changing curriculum. Based on the undergraduate curriculum of the MIT Department of Materials Science and Engineering, the series will include textbooks for the core courses in the field as well as texts for courses in specific material classes. The first three textbooks in the series will be: Thermodynamics of Materials, Vol. I, by David Ragone (0-471-30885-4) Thermodynamics of Materials, VoL. II, by David Ragone (0-471-30886-2) Physical Ceramics: Principles for Ceramics Science and Engineering, by Yet-Ming Chiang, Dunbar Birnie III, and W. David Kingery (0-471-59873-9)
About the Author
About the Author David V. Ragone received his S. B., S. M., and Sc.D. degrees in metallurgical engineering from MIT. He taught undergraduate and graduate courses in thermodynamics at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor from 1953 to 1962. From 1962 to 1967, as chairman of the materials department and assistant director of the Hopkins laboratory at the General Atomic Division of General Dynamics, he directed research on materials for advanced, high-temperature, gas-cooled nuclear reactors. He then served as Alcoa Professor of Metallurgy at the Carnegie- Mellon University, where he was also Associate Dean of Urban and Public Affairs. In 1970, he was named dean of the Thayer School at Dartmouth, and returned to the University of Michigan as Dean of Engineering in 1972. In 1980, he was named President of the Case Western University, where he served until 1987. He returned to teaching undergraduate courses in thermodynamics and the physical chemistry of materials at MIT in 1988, and began writing texts shortly thereafter. In addition to his appointment at MIT, David Ragone is a partner in Ampersand Ventures, a firm whose focus is on ventures in specialty materials and chemicals. He has also served as a member of the National Science Board and as a director of more than a dozen public and private companies. His professional society memberships include ASM, AIME, and ACS.
