The Fifth Edition increases the text's emphasis on developing problem-solving skills with additional support in the text and new problem-solving questions in MyMathLab. Quantitative reasoning is brought to the forefront with new Between the Numbers features and related exercises. Since practice is the key to success in this course, exercise sets are updated and expanded. MyMathLab offers additional exercise coverage plus new question types for problem-solving, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and more.
A practical introduction to the engineering science required for engineering study and practice. Science for Engineering is an introductory textbook that assumes no prior background in engineering. This new edition covers the fundamental scientific knowledge that all trainee engineers must acquire in order to pass their exams, and has been brought fully in line with the compulsory science and mathematics units in the new engineering course specifications. John Bird focuses upon engineering examples, enabling students to develop a sound understanding of engineering systems in terms of the basic laws and principles. This book includes over 580 worked examples, 1300 further problems, 425 multiple choice questions (with answers), and contains sections covering the mathematics that students will require within their engineering studies, mechanical applications, electrical applications and engineering systems. Colour layout helps navigation and highlights key learning points, formulae and exercises Understanding can be tested with the 580 worked examples, 1300 further problems and 425 multiple choice questions contained within the book Focuses on real-world situations and examples in order to maximise relevance to the student reader This book is supported by a companion website of materials that can be found at www.routledge/cw/bird, this resource including fully worked solutions of all the further problems for students to access for the first time, and the full solutions and marking schemes for the revision tests found within the book for lecturers/instructors use. In addition, all 433 illustrations will be available for downloading by staff. .

Providing a comprehensive overview of the radiative behavior and properties of materials, the fifth edition of this classic textbook describes the physics of radiative heat transfer, development of relevant analysis methods, and associated mathematical and numerical techniques. Retaining the salient features and fundamental coverage that have made it popular, Thermal Radiation Heat Transfer, Fifth Edition has been carefully streamlined to omit superfluous material, yet enhanced to update information with extensive references. Includes four new chapters on Inverse Methods, Electromagnetic Theory, Scattering and Absorption by Particles, and Near-Field Radiative Transfer Keeping pace with significant developments, this book begins by addressing the radiative properties of blackbody and opaque materials, and how they are predicted using electromagnetic theory and obtained through measurements. It discusses radiative exchange in enclosures without any radiating medium between the surfaces—and where heat conduction is included within the boundaries. The book also covers the radiative properties of gases and addresses energy exchange when gases and other materials interact with radiative energy, as occurs in furnaces. To make this challenging subject matter easily understandable for students, the authors have revised and reorganized this textbook to produce a streamlined, practical learning tool that: Applies the common nomenclature adopted by the major heat transfer journals Consolidates past material, reincorporating much of the previous text into appendices Provides an updated, expanded, and alphabetized collection of references, assembling them in one appendix Offers a helpful list of symbols With worked-out examples, chapter-end homework problems, and other useful learning features, such as concluding remarks and historical notes, this new edition continues its tradition of serving both as a comprehensive textbook for those studying and applying radiative transfer, and as a repository of vital literary references for the serious researcher.
* Problem-solving principles and strategies are introduced in chapter one and are used consistently throughout the text. * Of Further Interest sections appear at the end the chapter, and cover current topics that are exciting for students but are not typically part of the standard curriculum. * Statement Headings provide the students with a clear idea of the concept being discussed and are useful when reviewing for exams. * Applications motivate the discussion of the mathematics and increase student interest in the material. * Quiz Yourself questions are found throughout each section, and allow students to gauge their level of understanding before moving on to the next concept. * Some Good Advice is a feature that provides students with timely hints, tips, cautions and warnings about the material being covered. * Highlights are boxed features that consist of historical notes or biographical vignettes, uses of technology, and interesting applications.
This much-loved textbook introduces electrical and electronic principles and technology to students who are new to the subject. Real-world situations and engineering examples put the theory into context. The inclusion of worked problems with solutions really help aid your understanding and further problems then allow you to test and confirm you have mastered each subject. In total the books contains 410 worked problems, 540 further problems, 340 multiple-choice questions, 455 short-answer questions, and 7 revision tests with answers online. This an ideal text for vocational courses enabling a sound understanding of the knowledge required by technicians in fields such as electrical engineering, electronics and telecommunications. It will also be an excellent refresher for foundation and undergraduate degree students. It is supported by a companion website that contains solutions to the 540 questions in the practice exercises, formulae to help students answer the questions, multiple choice questions linked to each of the 23 chapters and information about the famous mathematicians and scientists mentioned in the book. Lecturers also have access to full solutions and the marking scheme for the 7 revision tests, lesson plans and illustrations from the book.
Offering a solid introduction to the entire modeling process, A FIRST COURSE IN MATHEMATICAL MODELING, 5th Edition delivers an excellent balance of theory and practice, and gives you relevant, hands-on experience developing and sharpening your modeling skills. Throughout, the book emphasizes key facets of modeling, including creative and empirical model construction, model analysis, and model research, and provides myriad opportunities for practice. The authors apply a proven six-step problem-solving process to enhance your problem-solving capabilities -- whatever your level. In addition, rather than simply emphasizing the calculation step, the authors first help you learn how to identify problems, construct or select models, and figure out what data needs to be collected. By involving you in the mathematical process as early as possible -- beginning with short projects -- this text facilitates your progressive development and confidence in mathematics and modeling.
