Engineering Mathematics is the best-selling introductory mathematics text for students on science and engineering degree and pre-degree courses. Sales of previous editions stand at more than half a million copies. It is suitable for classroom use and self-study. Its unique programmed approach takes students through the mathematics they need in a step-by-step fashion with a wealth of examples and exercises. The book is divided into two sections with the Foundation section starting at Level 0 of the IEng syllabus and the main section extending over all elements of a first year undergraduate course and into many second year courses. The book therefore suits a full range of abilities and levels of access. The Online Personal Tutor guides students through exercises in the same step-by-step fashion as the book, with hundreds of full workings to questions.

Modern science and engineering relies heavily on understanding computer hardware and software in order to make effective use of these tools in the laboratory and industrial environments. The authors of Modern Instrumentation: A Computer Approach have succeeded in producing a highly readable source that will serve both newcomers to the field as well as experienced professionals. Including both fundamentals and applications, the book first describes the role of the computer in instrument systems and provides numerous practical examples. The second part of the book explores specific software packages and their capabilities for applications such as, instrument design and simulation, data acquisition, data processing, and the potential of artificial intelligence in instrument design. Because of the full integration of theory with practical applications of leading software packages, this book is an extremely useful reference for those who use computer-based instrument technology for data acquisition and who are involved with hardware or software development for laboratory and process control.

Mechanical Science for Technicians, Volume 1, Second Edition focuses on the understanding of mechanical engineering and analytical approaches to solutions of problems involving deformation of materials, dynamics, and fluid flow. The monograph first elaborates on stress, strain, elasticity, and shear force and bending moment and stress. Discussions focus on the relationship between bending stress and external bending moment, assumptions made in the simple theory of bending, geometrical properties of plane sections, stress and strain in composite bars, and the effect of temperature change on composite bars. The manuscript then takes a look at the torsion of circular shafts, including torsion of hollow circular shafts, shear stress and angle of twist, and the relationship between shear stress and external torque. The text examines angular motion, kinetic energy, simple oscillations, and fluids in motion. Topics include pressure, kinetic, and potential energy, effect of approach velocity on flow through an orifice, oscillations of a simple pendulum, rotational or angular kinetic energy, and equations of uniform angular motion. The monograph is a valuable reference for engineers and researchers interested in mechanical engineering.
