This professional treatise on engineering graphics emphasizes engineering geometry as the theoretical foundation for communication of design ideas with real world structures and products. It considers each theoretical notion of engineering geometry as a complex solution of direct- and inverse-problems of descriptive geometry and each solution of basic engineering problems presented is accompanied by construction of biunique two- and three-dimension models of geometrical images. The book explains the universal structure of formal algorithms of the solutions of positional, metric, and axonometric problems, as well as the solutions of problems of construction in developing a curvilinear surface. The book further characterizes and explains the added laws of projective connections to facilitate construction of geometrical images in any of eight octants. Laws of projective connections allow constructing the complex drawing of a geometrical image in the American system of measurement and the European system of measurement without errors and mistakes. The arrangement of projections of a geometrical image on the complex drawing corresponds to an arrangement of views of a product in the projective drawing for the European system of measurement. The volume is ideal for engineers working on a range of design projects as well as for students of civil, structural, and industrial engineering and engineering design.

Advances in Computer Assisted Learning contains selected proceedings from the CAL Symposium on Computer Assisted Learning held at the University of Nottingham in the UK in 1985. This book reviews advances in computer-assisted learning in the areas of curriculum development, visually handicapped and disabled students, project work in schools, television, viewdata and video applications, database applications, and engineering education and training. This monograph has 35 chapters and opens with a discussion on the computing aspects of interactive video, focusing on the design and production of the software used to control the videodisc developed by the Open University in the UK. The next chapter illustrates a variety of case studies whereby local viewdata has been exploited by both teachers and their pupils in different parts of Europe. Attention then turns to the use of computer-assisted communication in the education of the visually impaired; the use of microcomputers in teaching electronics; and theoretical considerations in selecting software for language arts. This text will be of interest to educators and policymakers who want to implement computer technology in the classroom.

Preface changes in the content and process of graphics instruction. Although many graphics concepts remain the same, the fields of engineering and technical graphics are in a transition phase from hand tools to the computer, and the emphasis of instruction is changing from drafter to 3-D geometric modeler, using computers instead of paper and pencil. We realize that hand sketching will continue to be an important part of engineering and technical graphics for some time to come. Therefore, the text contains an appropriate mix of hand sketching and CAD instruction. Goals of the Text The primary goal of this text is to help the engineering and technology student learn the techniques and standard practices of technical graphics, so that design ideas can be adequately communicated and produced. The text concentrates on the concepts and skills necessary for sketching, 2-D, and 3-D CAD. The primary goals of the text are to show how to: 1. Clearly represent and control mental images. 2. Graphically represent technical designs, using accepted standard practices. 3. Use plane and solid geometric forms to create and communicate design solutions. 4. Analyze graphics models, using descriptive and spatial geometry. 5. Solve technical design problems, using traditional tools or CAD. 6. Communicate graphically, using sketches, traditional tools, and CAD. 7. Apply technical graphics principles to many engineering disciplines. Engineering and technical graphics have gone through significant changes in the last decade, due to the use of computers and CAD software. It seems as if some new hardware or software development that impacts technical graphics is occurring every year. Although these changes are important to the subject of technical graphics, there is much about the curriculum that has not changed. Engineers and technologists still find it necessary to communicate and interpret designs, using graphics methods such as drawings or computer models. As powerful as today’s computers and CAD software have become, they are of little use to engineers and technologists who do not fully understand fundamental graphics principles and 3-D modeling strategies or do not possess a high-level visualization ability. To the authors of this text, teaching graphics is not a job; it is a “life mission.” We feel that teaching is an important profession, and that the education of our engineers is critical to the future of our country. Further, we believe that technical graphics is an essential, fundamental part of a technologist’s education. We also believe that many topics in graphics and the visualization process can be very difficult for some students to understand and learn. For these and other reasons, we have developed this text, which addresses both traditional and modern elements of technical graphics, using what we believe to be an interesting and straightforward approach. In Chapter 1, you will learn about the “team” concept for solving design problems. The authors of this text used this concept, putting together a team of authors, reviewers, industry representatives, focus group, and illustrators, and combining that team with the publishing expertise at McGraw-Hill to develop a modern approach to the teaching of technical graphics. This new-generation graphics text therefore is based on the premise that there must be some fundamental Bertoline−Wiebe: Fundamentals of Graphics Communication, Fifth Edition Front Matter Preface © The McGraw−Hill 3 Companies, 2007 What Is Different and Why Much thought has gone into designing a complete instructional approach to the teaching and learning of engineering and technical graphics. The instructor is provided with a number of tools to assist in the instruction aspects, and the student is provided with tools to assist in the learning process. This text was written specifically using techniques that will prepare students to use engineering and technical graphics concepts, practices, and modern tools, to solve design problems and communicate graphically. One goal was to provide a textbook that was clear, interesting, relevant, and contemporary. Some of the distinguishing features of this text include the following: 1. Modern topics—The book is filled with modern examples, illustrations, and industry examples so students can relate to the material being presented. 2. Emphasis on visualization—Integrated throughout the text are visualization topics, explanations, and assignments to constantly reinforce and improve the student’s visualization skills. 3. 3-D modeling chapter—This unique chapter is devoted exclusively to the theory and practice of 3-D modeling. 4. Modern parts used for problem assignments— Most end-of-chapter problems are parts or assemblies of modern devices and products. 5. Integration of CAD—CAD concepts and practices have been integrated through all the chapters when they are relevant to the topic. They are not simply “tacked onto” the end of a chapter. 6. Integration of design—Design concepts are integrated through the text to give relevance and understanding of the relationship of design to technical graphics. Coverage of Modern Topics One of the primary reasons we wrote the text is that many modern topics either are not found or not covered in sufficient detail in traditional texts. Examples of contemporary topics covered in this book include: Computer simulation Mechanism analysis Human factors Product data management (PDM) Design for manufacturability (DFM) Knowledge-based engineering (KBE) Virtual reality (VR) Visualization 3-D modeling problems, concepts, and practices Coordinate space Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Multiviews from 3-D CAD models Right-hand rule Polar, cylindrical, spherical, absolute, relative, world, and local coordinate systems Freeform curves Spline curves Bezier curves Geometric surfaces Double-curved surfaces NURBS Fractals IGES PDES Missing lines Concurrent engineering Collaborative engineering Designer’s notebook Contour sketching Upside-down sketching Negative space sketching Extensive Coverage of Traditional Topics Even though we firmly believe our coverage results in the most modern text available, we have been very careful to include all the traditional topics normally found in a technical drawing textbook. Students must learn the fundamentals whether using hand tools or CAD to communicate graphically. Therefore, coverage of traditional topics is comprehensive and in many cases includes step-by-step procedures and enhanced color illustrations to facilitate teaching and learning. The text includes the latest ANSI standard practices used in industry. Following are some of the major traditional topics covered in detail in this text.
