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.

This book explores the history of mechanical engineering since the Bronze Age. Focusing on machinery inventions and the development of mechanical technology, it also discusses the machinery industry and modern mechanical education. The evolution of machinery is divided into three stages: Ancient (before the European Renaissance), Modern (mainly including the two Industrial Revolutions) and Contemporary (since the Revolution in Physics, especially post Second World War). The book not only clarifies the development of mechanical engineering, but also reveals the driving forces behind it – e.g. the economy, national defense and human scientific research activities – to highlight the links between technology and society; mechanical engineering and the natural sciences; and mechanical engineering and related technological areas. Though mainly intended as a textbook or supplemental reading for graduate students, the book also offers a unique resource for researchers and engineers in mechanical engineering who wish to broaden their horizons.

Computer Vision is a rapidly growing field of research investigating computational and algorithmic issues associated with image acquisition, processing, and understanding. It serves tasks like manipulation, recognition, mobility, and communication in diverse application areas such as manufacturing, robotics, medicine, security and virtual reality. This volume contains a selection of papers devoted to theoretical foundations of computer vision covering a broad range of fields, e.g. motion analysis, discrete geometry, computational aspects of vision processes, models, morphology, invariance, image compression, 3D reconstruction of shape. Several issues have been identified to be of essential interest to the community: non-linear operators; the transition between continuous to discrete representations; a new calculus of non-orthogonal partially dependent systems.

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.

Engineering Drawing is a textbook designed for the students of all engineering disciplines to develop a spatial bent of mind to observe, visualize, and understand the structure of objects from different perspectives. This ability forms the central idea of design and development of all engineering products. Beginning with the basics, such as BIS conventions, geometrical constructions, and scales, the book presents a detailed chapter on Visualization Concepts and Freehand Sketching, which lays the foundation to understand the subsequent chapters on orthographic projections, projection of points, lines, planes, and solids. These chapters ease the complexity of understanding further chapters such as intersection of solids, surfaces, and development of surfaces. The last few chapters discuss isometric projections, transformation of projections, perspective projections, and finally computer-aided drafting that briefs the reader about the utility of AutoCAD 2015 tools in drawing. The book provides a number of example problems, step-by-step procedure for solutions, numerous graded practice exercises, and multiple-choice questions.

"Theory and Design of Bridges provides early coverage of the aesthetic and economic factors involved in bridge engineering, the basic principles of effective bridge management, and various design approaches and bridge loads, providing a solid conceptual foundation of bridge response under service conditions and at failure. It then moves on to cover virtually every type of bridge, treating them within the context of a coherent structural framework, including: conventional concrete bridges - emphasizing prestressed concrete as the prevalent form of bridge construction, with coverage of new trends in prestressed applications; steel bridges - ranging from I-beam superstructure systems to horizontally curved systems, with detailed discussion of such key topics as ductility, brittle fracture, redundancy, and fatigue; orthotropic deck bridges - highlighted by practical coverage of the still-effective Pelikan-Esslinger method, first introduced in 1957; segmental concrete bridges - reviewed within the context of the groundbreaking 1989 AASHTO guidelines, which mark a major departure from previous design and construction provisions; trusses, movable bridges, and cable-stayed bridges - including their general features, design approaches, and specific examples; elastic arch bridges - with a special focus on buckling and geometry imperfections and associated stability considerations; special bridges - practical insight into structures characterized by unusual member geometry, structural configurations and combinations, and support conditions.".
