The new ebook "Engineering Mathematics: YouTube Workbook” takes learning to a new level by combining free written lessons with free online video tutorials. Each section within the workbook is linked to a video lesson on YouTube where the author discusses and solves problems step-by-step.
The combination of written text with interactive video offers a high degree of learning flexibility by enabling the student to take control of the pace of their learning delivery. For example, key mathematical concepts can be reinforced or more deeply considered by rewinding or pausing the video. Due to these learning materials being freely available online, students can access them at a time and geographical location that suits their needs.
Author, Dr Chris Tisdell, is a mathematician at UNSW, Sydney and a YouTube Partner in Education. He is passionate about free educational resources. Chris' YouTube mathematics videos have enjoyed a truly global reach, being seen by learners in every country on earth.
The need for this type of book is very well documented, the current consumption of energy is unsustainable and humans have to change their habits and or utilise this source and other sources of renewable energy such as solar, hydro and biomass, but there is so much work before we can rely completely on renewable energy sources. This book aims to describe the fundamentals of wind energy and the pertinent parameters that control the amount of energy available from a given wind turbine. The book is complimented by many worked examples of the calculations, and finally presents a case study of a typical wind turbine evaluatio
Thermodynamics is an essential subject taught to all science and engineering students. If the coverage of this subject is restricted to theoretical analysis, students will resort to memorising the facts in order to pass the examination. Therefore, this book is set out with the aim to present this subject from an angle of demonstration of how these laws are used in practical situation. This book is designed for the virtual reader in mind, it is concise and easy to read, yet it presents all the basic laws of thermodynamics in a simplistic and straightforward manner; plus many worked examples and a good section of unsolved tutorial problems.
Computational Fluid Dynamics
This book provides the basics of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) appropriate to modern day undergraduate study. The aim is to bridge the gap between books focusing on detailed theoretical analysis and commercial software user’s guides which do not contain significant theory. The book provides the reader with the theoretical background of basic CFD methods without going into deep detail into the mathematics or numerical algorithms.
Basic Concepts in Turbomachinery
This book is about the fundamentals of turbomachinery, the basic operation of pumps, aircraft engines, wind turbines, turbomachinery for power generation and hydro-electric machines. It compliments courses that you will be studying in these areas by concentrating on getting the basics right. Enormous emphasis is placed on relating the complex geometry of turbomachines to the fundamental analysis models used throughout the design of all turbomachinery. The simple techniques described in the book provide the basis for preliminary design of all turbomachinery and so mastering the concepts in this book provides a solid foundation for later study.
This book explains the basic modes of heat transfer namely conduction, convection and radiation. Fundamental mathematical models representing the heat transfer modes are introduced and application engineering problems are discussed. The principles of heat exchangers operation are covered as well.
Heat Transfer: Exercises
This Heat Transfer exercise book contains examples and full solutions to go with the Heat Transfer theory book. In the theory book the basic modes of heat transfer were explained. Namely conduction, convection and radiation. Hopefully this Heat Transfer exercise book will help you to gain further understanding of this subject.
This is an introductory book on hydraulics that covers the fundamental theories (continuity, energy and momentum equations), hydrostatics, pipe flow, physical modelling (dimensional analysis and similarity), open channel flow, uniform flow, channel design, critical flow, rapidly varied flow, hydraulic jump, hydraulic structures, gradually varied flow, computation of flow profile, unsteady flow and hydraulic machinery (pump and turbine). The text has been written in a concise format that is integrated with the relevant graphics, examples, questions, answers and full solutions.
A Wet Look At Climate Change
The term “Climate Change” has become popular but is not new to our planet. Our climate changes, sometimes dramatically, sometimes gradually, but it always changes. We hear about the wettest month on record, countrywide floods, record high and low temperatures, global warming...how do these changes in weather affect things around us? “A Wet Look at Climate Change” introduces the basics about moisture in air, which is the driving force for our weather. The subsequent chapters cover a range of everyday examples showing the impact these weather changes have around our home, garden and workplace.
Atmospheric Pollution is a theme which is becoming increasingly important as the discussion on global warming becomes ever more relevant. This textbook introduces the different concepts of Atmospheric Pollution and also introduces the reader to the underlying principles of physics and chemistry, which are constants in this discussion.
