An Introduction to Mechanical Vibrations 3rd Edition
This edition of this well-received engineering text retains the clarity of exposition that made the previous editions so popular, and contains the most widely-used problem sets in the business. Its approach to vibration analysis is clear, concise, and simple, backed up by a wealth of problems and examples. Multi- degree-of-freedom problems are well-prefaced with two-degree-of- freedom cases. There is a special treatment of damping, including non-viscous problems (standard texts make much use of viscous damping, but most practical examples are not viscous). The text now includes an excellent development of Rayleigh’s principle and an introduction to finite element vibration analysis. It also contains 100 new problems.

Thermodynamics, An Engineering Approach, eighth edition, covers the basic principles of thermodynamics while presenting a wealth of real-world engineering examples so students get a feel for how thermodynamics is applied in engineering practice. This text helps students develop an intuitive understanding by emphasizing the physics and physical arguments. Cengel and Boles explore the various facets of thermodynamics through careful explanations of concepts and use of numerous practical examples and figures, having students develop necessary skills to bridge the gap between knowledge and the confidence to properly apply their knowledge. Thermodynamics is now presented in full, four-color design. The illustrations and photographs are now more realistic and offer increased understanding to the student. Some of the figures and photographs in the text are intended to serve as a means of emphasizing key concepts that would otherwise go unnoticed. This edition includes over 500 new problems and a significant number of the existing problems are modified. An important change is the update of the R-134a tables to make property values consistent with those from the latest version of EES (Engineering Equasion Solver). All the solved examples and end-of-chapter problems dealing with R-134a are modified to reflect this change.

Teetor Education Award and has been twice elected to the NCSU Academy of Outstanding Teachers. The NCSU ASME student section has consistently recognized him as the outstanding teacher of the year and the faculty member having the most impact on mechanical engineering students. Dr. Boles specializes in heat transfer and has been involved in the analytical and numerical solution of phase change and drying of porous media. He is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), and Sigma Xi. Dr. Boles received the ASEE Meriam/Wiley Distinguished Author Award in 1992 for excellence in authorship.
Fully up-to-date coverage of human factors engineering—plus online access to interactive demonstrations and exercises
Engineering accomplishments can be as spectacular as a moon landing or as mundane as an uneventful drive to the local grocery store. Their failures can be as devastating as a plane crash or a massive oil spill. Over the past decade, psychologists and engineers have made great strides in understanding how humans interact with complex engineered systems—human engineering.
Introduction to Humans in Engineered Systems provides historical context for the discipline and an overview of some of the real-world settings in which human engineering has been successfully applied, including aviation, medicine, computer science, and ground transportation. It presents findings on the nature and variety of human-engineering environments, human capabilities and limitations, and how these factors influence system performance. Important features include:
- Contents organized around the interaction of the human operator with the larger environment to guide the analysis of real-world situations
- A web-based archive of interactive demonstrations, exercises, and links to additional readings and tools applicable to a range of application domains
- Web content customizable for focus on particular areas of study or research
