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.
Here's a wide-ranging collection of practice problems typical of the FE exam in every respect. All exam topics are covered and SI units are used. These multiple-choice questions are conveniently arranged by subject--so you can work through just the areas where you need practice, or all 1001 problems. A full, step-by-step solution is provided for each problem. _____________________________ Since 1975 more than 2 million people preparing for their engineering, surveying, architecture, LEED�, interior design, and landscape architecture exams have entrusted their exam prep to PPI.

Written by 6 professors, each with a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering; A detailed description of the examination and suggestions on how to prepare for it; 195 exam, essay, and multiple-choice problems with a total of 510 individual questions; A complete 24-problem sample exam; A detailed step-by-step solution for every problem in the book; This book may be used as a separate, stand-alone volume or in conjunction with Civil Engineering License Review, 14th Edition (0-79318-546-7). Its chapter topics match those of the License Review book. All of the problems have been reproduced for each chapter, followed by detailed step-by-step solutions. Similarly, the 24-problem sample exam (12 essay and 12 multiple-choice problems) is given, followed by step-by-step solutions to the exam. Engineers looking for a CE/PE review with problems and solutions will buy both books. Those who want only an elaborate set of exam problems, a sample exam, and detailed solutions to every problem will purchase this book. 100% problems and solutions.
Annotation Companion book to Electrical Engineering License Review. Here the end-of-chapter problems have been repeated and detailed Step-by-Step solutions are provided. Also included is a sample exam (same as 35X below), with detailed step-by-step solutions. 100% Problems and Solutions.

This collection of solved electrical engineering problems should help you review for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) and Principles and Practice (PE) exams. With this guide, you'll hone your skills as well as your understanding of both fundamental and more difficult topics. 100% problems and step-by-step solutions.
This book is based on the concept that optimization, as the core engineering practice, is a bridge to relate the given problem constraints to an acceptable level of uncertainties for the corresponding solution. Over two sections, this book addresses optimization techniques and parameters for engineering problems, corresponding uncertainties in engineering optimization solutions and methods to manage them, and managing uncertainties to support environmental pollution prevention and control.
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.
