Fluid Mechanics 8th SI Units Edition
The eighth edition of Fluid Mechanics offers students a clear and comprehensive presentation of the material that demonstrates the progression from physical concepts to engineering applications. The book helps students to see the practical importance of fluid mechanics fundamentals. The wide variety of topics gives instructors many options for their course and is a useful resource to students long after graduation. The problem-solving approach is presented at the start of the book and carefully integrated in all examples. Students can progress from general examples to those involving design, multiple steps, and computer usage. New To The Eighth Edition – Over 20 new problems per chapter; more than 500 in total New subsection on laminar-flow minorlosses, appropriate for micro- and nano-tube flows; additional discussion of the Kline-Fogelman airfoil, extremely popular now for model aircraft; new supersonic wave photographs added; new subsection on the water-channel compressible flow analogy; new problems assigned to find the oblique wave angle for supercritical water flow past a wedge; an expanded discussion of wind turbines, with examples and problems taken from the author’s own experience. Supplements – the following supplements are related to users of this SI edition. Solutions Manual – The Solutions Manual that accompanies this book offers typeset, one-per-page solutions with detail explanations, to end-of-chapter problems. Powerpoint Slides PowerPoint presentation slides for all chapters in the text are available for use in lectures.
Mechanics of Flight is an ideal introduction to the basic principles of flight for students embarking on courses in aerospace engineering, student pilots, apprentices in the industry and anyone who is simply interested in aircraft and space flight. Written in a straightforward and jargon-free style, this popular classic text makes the fascinating topic of aircraft flight engaging and easy to understand. Starting with an overview of the relevant aspects of mechanics, the book goes on to cover topics such as air and airflow, aerofoils, thrust, level flight, gliding, landing, performance, manoeuvres, stability and control. Important aspects of these topics are illustrated by a description of a trial flight in a light aircraft. The book also deals with flight at transonic and supersonic speeds, and finally orbital and space flight.
A classic in its field, Air Conditioning Principles and Systems continues to fill the need for a text book on air conditioning systems that combines design principles with real-world applications. Readers will gain insight into the design, operation, and troubleshooting of new and existing air conditioning systems. Moreover, this edition has been updated to reflect recent developments and issues in the industry, including the increasing use of the Internet in the field. Key features of this edition: New weather data for outside temperature analysis and system design. Expanded information on environmental problems to help readers stay current on issues and regulations. New information about asbestos, including answers about mitigation of harmful effects. Further exploration on scroll compression and how it works in real-world applications.

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
