Mechanics of Flight 2nd Edition
Flight mechanics is the science of predicting and controlling the motion that results from the aerodynamic forces and moments acting act on an aircraft. In this new Second Edition, Mechanics of Flight provides a logical order and extensive coverage in flight mechanics. With an accessible approach, this book offers problems, examples, theories, and applications. Fully updated to include the latest research and developments in flight mechanics plus new coverage of the asymetrical power problem, the Second Edition remains the most comprehensive and student-friendly coverage of mechanics of flight available.

Developed in partnership between Skills2Learn and Cengage Learning, this highly interactive workbook can be used as a resource tool for all introductory renewable energy vocational qualifications and apprenticeships. This unique workbook is designed to consolidate learners’ theoretical knowledge prior to undertaking practical workshop exercises. “Heat Pumps” provides learners with a thorough insight into heat pump technology including design principles, health and safety issues, efficiency calculations and installation, commissioning and handover. Part of the “Renewable Energy Series”, this unique write-in workbook can also be used alongside the Skills2Learn Heat Pumps virtual reality e-learning programme making this a first-of-its-kind, fully integrated blended learning solution.
Serving as both a text and reference manual, Engineering Vibration, 4e, connects traditional design-oriented topics, the introduction of modal analysis, and the use of MATLAB, Mathcad, or Mathematica. The author provides an unequaled combination of the study of conventional vibration with the use of vibration design, computation, analysis and testing in various engineering applications.
Teaching and Learning Experience
To provide a better teaching and learning experience, for both instructors and students, this program will:
- Apply Theory and/or Research: An unequaled combination of the study of conventional vibration with the use of vibration design, computation, analysis and testing in various engineering applications.
- Prepare Students for their Career: Integrated computational software packages provide students with skills required by industry.
About the book. This text provides a complete coverage of the basic principles of heat transfer and a broad range of applications. Heat and Mass Transfer: Fundamentals and Applications by Yunus Cengel and Afshin Ghajar provide the perfect blend of fundamentals and applications. The text provides a highly intuitive and practical understanding of the material by emphasizing the physics and the underlying physical phenomena involved. This text covers the standard topics of heat transfer with an emphasis on physics and real-world every day applications, while de-emphasizing the intimidating mathematical aspects. This approach is designed to take advantage of students’ intuition, making the learning process easier and more engaging. This text includes: more than 1,000 illustrations with a sensational visual appeal that highlight its key learning features; and, approximately 2,000 homework problems in design, computer, essay, and laboratory-type problems.
Engineering education is currently on the verge of a major transformation. However, while the need has been much discussed and several proposals for change have been put forward, relatively little focus has been put on actual implementation of the proposed changes. This book examines a program that has a long history of experimentation in engineering education. Written by experts on the subject, it describes specific topics with each chapter focusing on a specific innovation that has been carried out and explaining the educational pedagogy the learning benefit, as well as the transferability of the approach.
