At present, great hopes are placed on information technology as the sources of
industry regeneration and new economic growth. This is because the roles of
IT have been expanded from the tools for manufacturing cost reduction and
service speedup to those for effective collaboration among enterprises and the
creation of new industries. From now on, the rise or fall of an enterprise will
be determined by quality of computerization investment. It is therefore an
urgent matter to bring up engineers who construct advanced information
systems and those who utilize them....
ETSS Overview is a guidebook intended to be used as an introduction to Embedded Technology Skill Standards (ETSS).
This guidebook explains about how to utilize ETSS as the means to address the issues in embedded software development as well as for the skill management of human resources. It also outlines the methods of
There are several good mechanical engineering data books on the market but these tend to be very bulky and
expensive, and are usually only available in libraries as reference books.
The Mechnical Engineer’s Data Handbook has been compiled with the express intention of providing a
compact but comprehensive source of information of particular value to the engineer whether in the design office,
drawing office, research and development department or on site.
Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine Technology provides a comprehensive, easy-to-understand treatment of the background, development, and applications of the gas turbine engine it its various forms, such as turobjet, turbofan, turboprop, and turboshaft powerplants. Designed primarily as a resource for technicians preparing for the FAA aircraft powerplant mechanic certification, Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine Technology also may be used a reference. The text also discusses the changing maintenance and overhaul procedures and philosophies and the role of fuel metering in engine operation....
This book is addressed to business management and project managers as well as
researchers who are evaluating the use of radio frequency identiﬁcation (RFID)
for tracking uniquely identiﬁed objects. In an effort to make RFID project
management less of an art form and more of a science RFID Technology and
Applications brings together pioneering RFID academic research principals to
analyze engineering issues that have hampered the deployment of RFID and to
share ‘‘best practices’’ learnings from their work.
This report was concerned with the situation of learning English for
Engineering (EEE). It is fact that ESP subjects, especially EEE are worried problems.
Although EEE is one of compulsory subjects, many students in FOFL, HUT did not get
good marks and d06, k52 students were not an exception. The objective of this report was
to investigate the advantages and disadvantages of learning EEE as well as the main
reason why they did not get good mark in the final test.
I was delighted when Butterworth-Heinemann asked me to
edit a new edition of Mechanical Engineer’s Reference Book.
Upon looking at its predecessor, it was clear that it had served
the community well, but a major update was required. The
book clearly needed to take account of modern methods and
The philosophy behind the book is that it will provide a
qualified engineer with sufficient information so that he or she
can identify the basic principles of a subject and be directed to
further reading if required.
Unfortunately, much of what has been written about software engineering comes from an academic perspective which does not always address the everyday concerns that software developers and managers face. With decreasing software budgets and increasing demands from users and senior management, technology directors need a complete guide to the subject of software engineering. The successor to the bestselling Software Engineering Productivity Handbook, this book fulfills that need.
The main reason for a fourth edition of Essential MATLAB for Engineers and
Scientists is to keep up with MATLAB, now in its latest version (7.7 Version
2008B). Like the previous editions, this one presents MATLAB as a problemsolving
tool for professionals in science and engineering, as well as students in
those fields, who have no prior knowledge of computer programming.
Telecommunications is one of the fastest growing business sectors of modern
information technologies. A couple of decades ago, to have a basic understanding
of telecommunications, it was enough to know how the telephone
network operated. Today, the field of telecommunications encompasses a
vast variety of modern technologies and services. Some services, such as
the fixed telephone service in developed countries, have become mature,
and some have been exploding (e.g., cellular mobile communications and
Engineering technology or mechanical engineering industry is the application of physical principles to create all kinds of machinery and equipment or other useful objects. Mechanical application of thermodynamic principles, the law of conservation of mass and energy to analyze static and dynamic physical systems, for design work in areas such as automotive, aircraft and the other vehicles, heating systems and cooling, household appliances, machinery and production equipment, weapons ...
The sole purpose of these lecture notes is to provide an aid to the high school students attending the HSSP course “C-01B Reverse Engineering in Computer Applications” taught during Spring 2001 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The information presented hereby is on an “as-is” basis and the author cannot be possibly held liable for damages caused or initiated using methods or techniques described (or mentioned) in these notes.
The first edition of the Steel Heat Treatment Handbook was initially released in 1997. The objective of that book was to provide the reader with well-referenced information on the subjects covered with sufficient depth and breadth to serve as either an advanced undergraduate or graduate level text on heat treatment or as a continuing handbook reference for the designer or practicing engineer.
Book "Superconductors - Properties, Technology, and Applications" gives an overview of major problems encountered in this field of study. Most of the material presented in this book is the result of authors' own research that has been carried out over a long period of time. A number of chapters thoroughly describe the fundamental electrical and structural properties of the superconductors as well as the methods researching those properties. The sourcebook comprehensively covers the advanced techniques and concepts of superconductivity. It's intended for a wide range of readers....
Several years ago, the idea arose to write a general book on tribology. Students often
requested a suitable book for the study of tribology and there were problems in
recommending any one text-book. Existing text-books were either too specialized or too
literal. Many books provided exhaustive reviews of friction and wear data while others
provided detailed description of the lubrication and wear problems occurring in machinery.
A book which explains the concepts of tribology in terms useful to engineering students and
engineers was, however, lacking....
