Intended as a valuable biographical reference work on the lives, works and careers of individuals engaged in the practice of civil engineering, this volume looks specifically at those whose careers began before 1830. Beginning with what little is known of the lives of engineers such as John Trew who practised in the Tudor period, the background, training and achievements of engineers over the following 250 years are described by specialist authors, many of whom have spent a lifetime researching the history of civil engineering. This book will be of particular interest to historians of all disciplines and of great value to engineers involved in restoration work for whom an authoritative source of information on the engineers who designed public works over 300 years will be available for the first time.

Handbook for Sound Engineers is the most comprehensive reference available for audio engineers. All audio topics are explored: if you work on anything related to audio you should not be without this book! The 4th edition of this trusted reference has been updated to reflect changes in the industry since the publication of the 3rd edition in 2002 -- including new technologies like software-based recording systems such as Pro Tools and Sound Forge; digital recording using MP3, wave files and others; mobile audio devices such as iPods and MP3 players. Over 40 topics are covered and written by many of the top professionals for their area in the field, including Glen Ballou on interpretation systems, intercoms, assistive listening, and image projection; Ken Pohlmann on compact discs and DVDs; David Miles Huber on MIDI; Dr. Eugene Patronis on amplifier design and outdoor sound systems; Bill Whitlock on audio transformers and preamplifiers; Pat Brown on fundamentals and gain structures; Ray Rayburn on virtual systems and digital interfacing; and Dr. Wolfgang Ahnert on computer-aided sound system design and acoustics for concert halls.

Entrepreneurship for Engineers

Entrepreneurs have led economies out of downturns in the last 100 years and evidence points to this trend continuing into the future. In fact, regardless of country or economic conditions, entrepreneurial enterprises are on the rise. High-tech start-ups, where innovation, dedication, collaboration, and pure genius align into a successful enterprise, will likely see good times—if they start up right. However, many young researchers hesitate to set up their own company. Written by an electrical engineer with more than nineteen years of successful business experience, Entrepreneurship for Engineers covers every aspect you must master to become a savvy entrepreneur. The author provides coverage of the fundamentals of global economies, accounting, finance, and quantitative business analysis, because ordinary engineers usually lack these necessary survival skills. Outlining a systematic preparation process that will build a great reputation in the commercial marketplace, the author answers: How to start up a company How to create product lines How to collect venture capital How to write successful R&D proposals How to apply forward thinking How to keep cash flowing in a small firm Typical MBA courses include the following curricula: economics, accounting, finance/investment, marketing, and human resources, with courses like Managerial Communications and Quantitative Business Analysis (Applied Mathematics), and finally Strategic Management and Business Ethics. Engineering curricula seldom includes any of this. Supplying almost all the knowledge necessary for operating a corporation, above and beyond what you may find in an MBA program, this book uses an approach to business that is just as disciplined and rigorous as any approach to engineering.

Demonstrating that probability is an applied science useful to engineers and covering, in two parts, all of the material that most engineers will encounter in practice, self-study or graduate study, this book offers a thorough development of probability theory and shows how the theory can be adapted to solve practical problems.;Part 1 of Probability and its Applications for Engineers explicates the theory and illustrates its use with concrete examples from such topics as quality control/acceptance sampling, telephone network blocking, economics and inventory control, the use of moments, and the overly conscientious worker phenomenon.;Developing basic results to a high degree, and comprehensively enough to cope with real engineering tasks, Part II elaborates on practical applications of the theory in areas of interest to practising engineers. Beginning with an introduction to statistics, Part II provides concise, self-contained examinations of control charts, tolerancing, reliability, random processes and decision trees.;With end-of-chapter problem sets and answers, a bibliography and over 1100 display equations, Probability and its Applications for Engineers sets out to provide a resource for quality and reliability, mechanical, and electrical and electronics engineers, and upper-level undergraduate, graduate and continuing-education students in these disciplines.
