Engineering Design Via Surrogate Modelling

RRP $258.99

Surrogate models expedite the search for promising designs by standing in for expensive design evaluations or simulations. They provide a global model of some metric of a design (such as weight, aerodynamic drag, cost, etc.), which can then be optimized efficiently. <p> <p> <i>Engineering Design via Surrogate Modelling</i> is a self-contained guide to surrogate models and their use in engineering design. The fundamentals of building, selecting, validating, searching and refining a surrogate are presented in a manner accessible to novices in the field. Figures are used liberally to explain the key concepts and clearly show the differences between the various techniques, as well as to emphasize the intuitive nature of the conceptual and mathematical reasoning behind them. <p> More advanced and recent concepts are each presented in stand-alone chapters, allowing the reader to concentrate on material pertinent to their current design problem, and concepts are clearly demonstrated using simple design problems. This collection of advanced concepts (visualization, constraint handling, coping with noisy data, gradient-enhanced modelling, multi-fidelity analysis and multiple objectives) represents an invaluable reference manual for engineers and researchers active in the area. <p> <p> <i>Engineering Design via Surrogate Modelling</i> is complemented by a suite of Matlab codes, allowing the reader to apply all the techniques presented to their own design problems. By applying statistical modelling to engineering design, this book bridges the wide gap between the engineering and statistics communities. It will appeal to postgraduates and researchers across the academic engineering design community as well as practising design engineers. <p> <ul> <li>Provides an inclusive and practical guide to using surrogates in engineering design. <li>Presents the fundamentals of building, selecting, validating, searching and refining a surrogate model. <li>Guides the reader through the practical implementation of a surrogate-based design process using a set of case studies from real engineering design challenges. </ul> <p> <b>Accompanied by a companion website featuring Matlab software at</b> <b><u><a href="http://www.wiley.com/go/forrester">http://www.wiley.com/go/forrester</a></u></b>


Risk Analysis In Building Fire Safety Engineering

RRP $257.99

This book bridges the gap between risk assessment and fire safety engineering like few other resources.
As all required knowledge for Probability and Statistics for Fire Engineering is included in the preliminary chapters, the book is suitable for teaching Fire Engineering components in a wide range of engineering courses for senior graduates and for postgraduate students of Fire Engineering. It will also serve as a comprehensive reference for professionals.
This book describes the theory and the models involved in risk analysis, and includes case studies of multiple fire scenarios. Building fire safety and human behavioural responses to these scenarios show the benefits of risk-based fire safety design.
* Case studies and examples from across the world
* Applies probabilistic and stochastic models to fire initiation, fire growth, smoke spread and human behavior
* Co-written by a pioneering researcher in the field of building fire safety


Critical Component Wear In Heavy Duty Engines

RRP $340.99

The critical parts of a heavy duty engine are theoretically designed for infinite life without mechanical fatigue failure. Yet the life of an engine is in reality determined by wear of the critical parts. Even if an engine is designed and built to have normal wear life, abnormal wear takes place either due to special working conditions or increased loading. Understanding abnormal and normal wear enables the engineer to control the external conditions leading to premature wear, or to design the critical parts that have longer wear life and hence lower costs. The literature on wear phenomenon related to engines is scattered in numerous periodicals and books. For the first time, Lakshminarayanan and Nayak bring the tribological aspects of different critical engine components together in one volume, covering key components like the liner, piston, rings, valve, valve train and bearings, with methods to identify and quantify wear. <ul type="disc"> <li>The first book to combine solutions to critical component wear in one volume <li>Presents real world case studies with suitable mathematical models for earth movers, power generators, and sea going vessels <li>Includes material from researchers at Schaeffer Manufacturing (USA), Tekniker (Spain), Fuchs (Germany), BAM (Germany), Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd (India) and Tarabusi (Spain) <li>Wear simulations and calculations included in the appendices <li>Instructor presentations slides with book figures available from the companion site
</ul>

<i>Critical Component Wear in Heavy Duty Engines</i> is aimed at postgraduates in automotive engineering, engine design, tribology, combustion and practitioners involved in engine R&amp;D for applications such as commercial vehicles, cars, stationary engines (for generators, pumps, etc.), boats and ships. This book is also a key reference for senior undergraduates looking to move onto advanced study in the above topics, consultants and product mangers in industry, as well as engineers involved in design of furnaces, gas turbines, and rocket combustion.

Top Job Search Strategies For 2016

RRP $18.99

Help Wanted! If you're looking for a new job in 2015, opportunities abound, but you're going to need a plan. Even though the US economy is expected to grow and add thousands of new jobs this year, finding the best positions will still require you to network and market yourself effectively. It's critical to know how to use the Internet and social media to find the best job opportunities, especially since many of your competitors will be promoting themselves through those channels. Most job-seekers enter into a job search without well-defined goals, or a solid plan as to how they'll locate and secure that great new job. That's where Top Job Search Strategies for 2015 comes in. This book is loaded with tips and strategies to help you build your personal brand, and market yourself like a pro. There's also a section to help you conduct an offline job search "the old fashioned way," as job fairs and employment agencies are still effective employment resources. Top Job Search Strategies For 2015 is filled with up-to-date information to help job-seekers succeed in today's ever-changing job market. The book is divided into twelve sections, and covers a wide variety of topics including how to locate your ideal job, research companies and organizations, set up online profiles, build a personal network, and market yourself to employers and recruiters.


Engineering Problem Solving : A Classical Perspective

RRP $247.99

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.
