Petroleum and natural gas still remain the single biggest resource for energy on earth. Even as alternative and renewable sources are developed, petroleum and natural gas continue to be, by far, the most used and, if engineered properly, the most cost-effective and efficient, source of energy on the planet. Drilling engineering is one of the most important links in the energy chain, being, after all, the science of getting the resources out of the ground for processing. Without drilling engineering, there would be no gasoline, jet fuel, and the myriad of other “have to have” products that people use all over the world every day. Following up on their previous books, also available from Wiley-Scrivener, the authors, two of the most well-respected, prolific, and progressive drilling engineers in the industry, offer this groundbreaking volume. They cover the basics tenets of drilling engineering, the most common problems that the drilling engineer faces day to day, and cutting-edge new technology and processes through their unique lens. Written to reflect the new, changing world that we live in, this fascinating new volume offers a treasure of knowledge for the veteran engineer, new hire, or student. This book is an excellent resource for petroleum engineering students, reservoir engineers, supervisors & managers, researchers and environmental engineers for planning every aspect of rig operations in the most sustainable, environmentally responsible manner, using the most up-to-date technological advancements in equipment and processes.

Engineering Problem Solving

Engineering, at its origins, was a profession of problem solving. The classic text, Dialogues Concerning Two New Sciences by Galileo Galilei is revisited in this ambitious and comprehensive book by Milton Shaw. In-depth discussions of passages from the Galileo text emphasize the ""mind set"" of engineering, specifically the roles played by experimentation and dialog in analysis and creativity. In the epilogue, the author points out that engineering students are usually exposed to two types of faculty. The first type is mathematically oriented and mostly interested in analytical solutions. The second type is interested in devising and experimenting with innovative solutions. However, since many talented graduates move directly into teaching instead of gaining real world experience, an imbalance of analytical teaching has occurred. Shaw points out through an example by Dr. Dave Lineback that learning to solve practical engineering problems is a very important part of an engineer's education, but is often denied due to expense and time and effort required. This book fills in many of the gaps in engineering education by showing students, and professionals, the historical background of problem solving. Among those who will find this book particularly useful are engineers working in cross-disciplinary capacities, such as mechanical engineers working with electrical engineering concepts or polymeric materials, engineers preparing for professional engineering exams, mid-career engineers looking to broaden their problem-solving skills, and students looking for help growing their skills.

Avoid wasting time and money on recurring plant process problems by applying the practical, five-step solution in Process Engineering Problem Solving: Avoiding "The Problem Went Away, but it Came Back" Syndrome. Combine cause and effect problem solving with the formulation of theoretically correct working hypotheses and find a structural and pragmatic way to solve real-world issues that tend to be chronic or that require an engineering analysis. Utilize the fundamentals of chemical engineering to develop technically correct working hypotheses that are key to successful problem solving.

Towards a reassessment of muskeg, an appraisal of the problems of muskeg showing the complexity of the subject and the implications for engineering is presented based on field experience and a study of the literature. A theory of the origin of muskeg is given from the engineer's point of view by considering climatic, biotic, and geologic factors. Muskeg research in other countries is reviewed with emphasis on Canadian research. The Radforth Muskeg Classification System, its application to problems and modifications are discussed. Empirical data on the engineering properties of peat are broadly described in four main categories: (1) index properties, for identification; (2) strength and deformation properties; (3) thermal properties; and (4) geophysical properties. Engineering problems, construction equipment, and costs to be considered in vehicle trafficability, road construction, corrosion and drainage operations, and frozen muskeg and permafrost construction when muskeg is involved and fully discussed. Comprehensive conclusions and recommendations on the present state of knowledge of muskeg and needs for further research are outlined.

This book aims to provide a quick review of MATLAB commands and teach the programming principals in a concise way. However, it is an excellent companion to practice and learn how to use MATLAB to solve Mechanical Engineering problems. It is developed to improve the programming skills of students and engineers and teach them how to use MATLAB for everyday engineering problems at school and at work. This book focuses on not only solid mechanics problems (statics, dynamics, vibrations, dynamics of machines, strength of materials, engineering materials, composites, etc) but also on thermal sciences problems (thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, etc).
