This book is the first to bridge the often disparate bodies of knowledge now known as applied mechanics and materials science. Using a very methodological process to introduce mechanics, materials, and design issues in a manner called "total structural design," this book seeks a solution in "total design space" Features include:
* A generalized design template for solving structural design problems.
* Every chapter first introduces mechanics concepts through deformation, equilibrium, and energy considerations. Then the constitutive nature of the chapter topic is presented, followed by a link between mechanics and materials concepts. Details of analysis and materials selection are subsequently discussed.
* A concluding example design problem is provided in most chapters, so that students may get a sense of how mechanics and materials come together in the design of a real structure.
* Exercises are provided that are germane to aerospace, civil, and mechanical engineering applications, and include both deterministic and design-type problems.
* Accompanying website contains a wealth of information complementary to this text, including a set of virtual labs. Separate site areas are available for the instructor and students.
*Combines theories of solid mechanics, materials science and structural design in one coherent text/reference
*Covers physical scales from the atomistic to continuum mechanics
*Offers a generalized structural design template
Through this book's unique model comparison approach, students and researchers are introduced to a set of fundamental principles for analyzing data. After seeing how these principles can be applied in simple designs, students are shown how these same principles also apply in more complicated designs.
Drs. Maxwell and Delaney believe that the model comparison approach better prepares students to understand the logic behind a general strategy of data analysis appropriate for various designs; and builds a stronger foundation, which allows for the introduction of more complex topics omitted from other books.
Several learning tools further strengthen the reader's understanding:
*flowcharts assist in choosing the most appropriate technique;
*an equation cross-referencing system aids in locating the initial, detailed definition and numerous summary equation tables assist readers in understanding differences between different methods for analyzing their data;
*examples based on actual research in a variety of behavioral sciences help students see the applications of the material;
*numerous exercises help develop a deeper understanding of the subject. Detailed solutions are provided for some of the exercises and *realistic data sets allow the reader to see an analysis of data from each design in its entirety.
Updated throughout, the second edition features:
*significantly increased attention to measures of effects, including confidence intervals, strength of association, and effect size estimation for complex and simple designs;
*an increased use of statistical packages and the graphical presentation of data;
*new chapters (15 & 16) on multilevel models;
*the current controversies regarding statistical reasoning, such as the latest debates on hypothesis testing (ch. 2);
*a new preview of the experimental designs covered in the book (ch. 2);
*a CD with SPSS and SAS data sets for many of the text exercises, as well as tutorials reviewing basic statistics and regression; and
*a Web site containing examples of SPSS and SAS syntax for analyzing many of the text exercises.
Appropriate for advanced courses on experimental design or analysis, applied statistics, or analysis of variance taught in departments of psychology, education, statistics, business, and other social sciences, the book is also ideal for practicing researchers in these disciplines. A prerequisite of undergraduate statistics is assumed. An Instructor's Solutions Manual is available to those who adopt the book for classroom use.
"Remarkable. Our little boy is only 3 weeks old really focusing on these nature and science based images at such an early age. Brilliant idea!" Owen, Bristol, UK
#1 BEST SELLER series on Amazon, developed by a Psychologist, an Astronaut Training Designer and a Humanoid Robotics Engineer, this book is a part of incredible and innovative series, EARTH DESIGNS series - black and white for a NEWBORN, BABY and FAMILY, is based on the current scientific findings on newborns and BABIES' visual perception and brain development.
This book is the second in the series. It contains 12 HIGH CONTAST BLACK AND WHITE beautifully illustrated pictures inspired by the underwater world. We know less about our oceans than we know about Space.
Pictures are designed to help:
- Improve concentration through stimulating and captivating images.
- Stimulate further learning and discovery.
- Create new pathways in the brain through learning to trace visual patterns.
- Acquire early life skills essential for successful learning and interaction.
Pictures within this book are accompanied by over 30 fascinating facts for the whole family to enjoy!
Through this EARTH DESIGN series (note, this is Underwater World book only, see other books in the series), your baby will be exposed to a wide range of sciences: mathematics, geometry, biology, astronomy together with history, architecture, cutting-edge engineering and other aspects of our mysterious and fascinating Universe.
These books are designed for the adult and the baby to enjoy together. There are two levels of information presented, facts for the parent and the image for the baby and the parent, to make the most from the time spent together.

Unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) are revolutionizing the way we explore our global environment. Whether it's to monitor severe weather events or used in a military operation, these machines and the components that operate them are changing the way we approach flight. In his book, Designing Unmanned Aircraft Systems: A Comprehensive Approach, Jay Gundlach investigates all elements of UAS design, including architectural options, and design drivers across diverse systems classes. As the most authoritative single reference on UAS design, the book provides readers a solid understanding of the end-to-end unmanned aircraft system and gain a deeper appreciation for the multidisciplinary nature of UAS design.
Topics Discussed Approach for developing competitive, balanced unmanned aircraft systems through a multidisciplinary systems philosophy Extensive survey and analysis of unmanned aircraft launch and recovery techniques, along with selection and design processes Communication systems Derivations of electric aircraft performance equations Overview of mission planning system and control station software functionality Design of aircraft geometry and payload placement Overview of ground control station types and functionality Cost analysis Special Features Equations with solutions at the chapter level Graphics such as line drawings, plots, and images illustrate the problem formulation, communicate data, or highlight system design features Use of examples Case histories
