ENLIB - New Books (June 2011)No. Details 1 Title : The finite element method in engineering (5th) Author : Rao, Singiresu S. - Finite Element Analysis is an analytical engineering tool originated by the Aerospace and nuclear power industries to find usable, approximate solutions to problems with many complex variables. It is an extension of derivative and integral calculus, and uses very large matrix arrays and mesh diagrams to calculate stress points, movement of loads and forces, and other basic physical behaviors. Rao provides a thorough grounding of the mathematical principles for setting up finite element solutions in civil, mechanical, and aerospace engineering applications. The new edition includes examples using modern computer tools such as Matlab, Ansys, Nastran, and Abaqus. Year : 2011 Call No. : TA347.F5 R215 20112 Title : Applied and computational fluid mechanics Author : Scott post - Designed for the fluid mechanics course for mechanical engineers or as a reference for professional engineers, this up to date text uses computer algorithms and applications to solve modern problems related to fluid flow, aerodynamics, and thermodynamics. Algorithms for numerical solutions of fluid problems (which can be implemented in programming environments such as MATLAB) will be used throughout the book, and it also includes an introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics, a well-established method in the design of heat transfer and cooling applications. A CD-ROM accompanies the book with source code, MATLAB files, third-party simulations, color figures, and other resources.This book contains an introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), including capabilities and limitations of CFD and common problems. It contains practical applications such as fuel cells, aerodynamic design of ground vehicles, micro-fluidic devices, iterative pipe flow problems, wind turbines, rockets, pumps, and others.

3 Title : Introduction to Composite Materials Design (2nd) Author : Ever J. Barbero. - Completely revised and updated, this second edition of a bestseller contains new chapters on short fiber composites, fabric reinforced composites, and external reinforcement for infrastructure. The text covers design aspects such as fiber and matrix selection, fabrication processes, prediction of material properties, and structural analysis of beams, plates, shells, and other structures. Powerful preliminary design tools, such as carpet plots, are used in examples throughout the book. Instructional materials including PowerPoint slides, software, and other pedagogical tools will be available from a password protected website maintained by the author.

The large scale of these production operations makes it more important than ever that the process is performed perfectly every time: failure will lead to product deterioration and loss of sales at best, and at worst to serious illness or death. Year : 2011 Call No. : TP371 T982 No.5 Title : Numerical Methods in Fluid Dynamics : Boundary- Initial and Initial Boundary-Value Problems Author Author : Gary A. Sod. - Here is an introduction to numerical methods for partial differential equations with particular reference to those that are of importance in fluid dynamics. The author gives a thorough and rigorous treatment of the techniques, beginning with the classical methods and leading to a discussion of modern developments. For easier reading and use, many of the purely technical results and theorems are given separately from the main body of the text. The presentation is intended for graduate students in applied
mathematics, engineering and physical sciences who have a basic knowledge of partial differential equations.

A logical progression of information covers essential fundamentals, in-depth case studies, and the latest analytical tools used for predicting and preventing damage in rotating machinery. Machinery Vibration and Rotordynamics: Year Year : 2010 Call No. : TJ177 V222 No.7 Title : Nonlinear vibration with control : for flexible and adaptive structures Author : David Wagg, Simon Neild. - This book covers the basic principles of nonlinear vibrations which occur in flexible and/or adaptive structures, with an emphasis on engineering analysis and relevant control techniques. Understanding nonlinear vibrations is becoming increasingly important in a range of engineering applications. This is particularly true in the design of flexible structures such as aircraft, satellites, bridges, and sports stadia. There is an increasing trend towards lighter structures, with increased slenderness, often made of new composite materials and requiring some form of deployment and/or active vibration control. There are also applications in the areas of robotics, mechatronics, micro electrical mechanical systems, non- destructive testing and related disciplines such as structural health monitoring.

8 engineering Title : Manual of engineering drawing : a guide to iso and asme standards (3rded.) Author : Colin H. Simmons, Dennis E. Maguire. - The Manual of Engineering Drawing has long been the recognised as a guide for practicing and student engineers to producing engineering drawings and annotated 3D models that comply with the latest British and ISO Standards of Technical Product Specifications and Documentation. This new edition has been updated to include the requirements of BS8888 2008 and the relevant ISO Standards, and is ideal for International readership; it includes a guide to the fundamental differences between the ISO and ASME Standards relating to Technical Product Specification and Documentation. Equally applicable to CAD and manual drawing it includes the latest development in 3D annotation and the specification of surface texture. The Duality Principle is introduced as this important concept is still very relevant in the new world of 3D Technical Product Specification. Written by members of BSI and ISO committees and a former college lecturer, the Manual of Engineering Drawing combines up to the minute technical information with clear, readable explanations and numerous diagrams and traditional geometrical construction techniques rarely taught in schools and colleges. This approach makes this manual an ideal companion for students studying vocational courses in Technical Product Specification, undergraduates studying engineering or product design and any budding engineer beginning a career in design. The comprehensive scope of this new edition encompasses topics such as orthographic and pictorial projections, dimensional, geometrical and surface tolerancing, 3D annotation and the duality principle, along with numerous examples of electrical and hydraulic diagrams with symbols and applications of cams, bearings, welding and adhesives.
