This text explores the laws and equations that govern the flow and storage of groundwater in aquifers. It provides groundwater hydrologists, as well as engineers and planners who deal with the development and management of groundwater resources,
A Droll History of Inventors and Inventions
by Trevor Norton
by WERNER GOLDSMITH
Scientists and engineers have long been interested in solving problems dealing with impact theory and behavior-an area involving tool design, foundry and machine-shop operations, ordnance and explosions, vehicular accidents, and many other ...
by ROBERT B. ASH
Developed by Claude Shannon and Norbert Wiener in the late 1940s, information theory, or statistical communication theory, deals with the theoretical underpinnings of a wide range of communication devices: radio, television, radar, computers, ...
Bubble Wrap, Barbed Wire, Bionic Eyes, and Other Pioneering Inventions
by Ben Ikenson
by RAY M BOWEN
This self-contained graduate-level text introduces classical continuum models within a modern framework. Its numerous exercises illustrate the governing principles, linearizations, and other approximations that constitute classical continuum ...
by ROGER E. HARRINGTON
This study of electromagnetic theory introduces students to a broad range of quantities and concepts, imparting the necessary vector analysis and associated mathematics and reinforcing its teachings with several elementary field problems. Based ...
by J. P NORTON
Advanced undergraduates and graduate students of electrical, chemical, mechanical, and environmental engineering will appreciate this text for a course in systems identification. In addition to the theoretical basis for mathematical modeling, it
by William Palm III
by WILLIAM TYRRELL THOMSON
Although this classic introduction to space-flight engineering was first published not long after Sputnik was launched, the fundamental principles it elucidates are as varied today as then. The problems to which these principles are applied have
by KARL J. ÅSTROM
This text for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students explores stochastic control theory in terms of analysis, parametric optimization, and optimal stochastic control. Limited to linear systems with quadratic criteria, it covers ...
by J. T. ODEN
This introduction to the theory of Sobolev spaces and Hilbert space methods in partial differential equations is geared toward readers of modest mathematical backgrounds. It offers coherent, accessible demonstrations of the use of these ...
by Y C FUNG
Geared toward advanced undergraduates and graduate students, this outstanding text was written by one of the founders of bioengineering and modern biomechanics. It offers unusually thorough coverage of the interaction of aerodynamic forces and ...
by JACK MORAN
This concise and highly readable introduction to theoretical and computational aerodynamics integrates both classical and modern developments, focusing on applying methods to actual wing design. Designed for a junior- or senior-level course and ...
by FRANZ REULEAUX
This classic work explores the kinematics of machinery, chronicling the discovery and application of principles underlying the controlled movements within machines. Franz Reuleaux, the Father of Kinematics, writes with authority and precision ...
by KUMPATI S. NARENDRA
This self-contained introductory text on the behavior of learning automata focuses on how a sequential decision-maker with a finite number of choices responds in a random environment. Topics include fixed structure automata, variable structure ...
by Supriyo Datta
by LOTFI A ZADEH
Written by two pioneers in the field, this exploration of the state space approach focuses on problems of stability and control, plus connections between this approach and classical techniques. The state space approach is widely used in systems
by PAUL SANDORI
Based on common, everyday phenomena, the principles governing the balance of forces on machines and structures are extremely straightforward. Their expression in mathematical form, however, obscures their clarity. This volume exposes the ...
