Finite Element Method in Machine Design covers the basic concepts involved in the use of finite element method to solve problems in the broad area of machine design. The study deals with application of static, transient, steady state, random vibration problems in the area of machine design. A special chapter on cyclic symmetric structures is a novelty. Number of practical problems solved for the industry with experimental verifications is presented. It is emphasized that the output obtained using finite element method is to be integrated with the knowledge available from basic machine element design. Precautions to be taken in the use of commercial packages are highlighted. Source codes associated with the material presented (both in C and FORTRAN Languages) are included in the CD accompanying the book.
Graded Exercises in Mechanics is a wide-ranging collection of exercises for homework, practice and revision. It is part of the series Graded Exercises in Advanced Level Mathematics, which provides a comprehensive collection of exercises for the new AS and A2 specifications. These exercises allow the practice needed to develop understanding and revise for examinations. Each topic has exercises in four sections: Basic questions provide routine practice in standard techniques; Intermediate questions are more challenging and of the standard of more straightforward A level questions; Advanced questions are designed to challenge more able students and include more demanding A level questions and some even harder, aimed at those trying for the highest grades; Revision questions provide material to revise a particular topic thoroughly and build confidence. Answers are included.
Mechanics is the first foundation for the study of physics. This book takes first-year undergraduates through an entertaining and instructive set of practical examples of the uses of mechanics. The author adopts a fresh approach which recognizes mechanics as an observational science, and uses worked examples that can be easily visualized and understood by the reader. By the end of the book students will have not only painlessly learned the principles of mechanics, but will have also obtained a good grasp of techniques needed for solving typical mechanics problems. They will also have covered all the essentials of a first-year university course in mechanics. The book can then be used as a reference of a quick aid to revision.
This textbook provides a simple introduction to mechanics for students coming to the subject for the first time. The text is based on courses given to first and second year undergraduates and has been written with this audience in mind. Prerequisites are only a basic familiarity with vectors, matrices, and elementary calculus. The author's aim is to provide an understanding of Newtonian mechanics using the tools of modern algebra. The first chapters of the book introduce the fundamentals of the motion of rigid bodies: Newton's laws, forces, linear and angular momentum, and the conservation of energy. In the later chapters the theory of Lagrangian mechanics is developed and extended to cover applications to impulsive forces. Throughout, the theory is illustrated with many worked examples, and numerous exercises (some with solutions) are provided.
