Royal Society Research Professor Emeritus at Cambridge University and Former Visiting Professor of Design at the Royal College of Art, London, UKMike Ashby is sole or lead author of several of Elsevier's top selling engineering textbooks, including Materials and Design: The Art and Science of Material Selection in Product Design, Materials Selection in Mechanical Design, Materials and the Environment, and Materials: Engineering, Science, Processing and Design. He is also coauthor of the books Engineering Materials 1&2, and Nanomaterials, Nanotechnologies and Design.
How could nanotechnology not perk the interest of any designer, engineer or architect? This book addresses and explores the impacts and opportunities of nanotech for mainstream designers, engineers and architects. It is suitable for those concerned with good design and the use of new materials.
Brings together information on automotive materials and material technologies to provide designers and vehicle body engineers with reference to inform their material choices. This book includes materials processing, formability, welding and joining, anti-corrosion technologies, and the implications of materials selection on these processes.
Turbomachinery is a challenging and diverse field, with applications for professionals and students in many subsets of the mechanical engineering discipline. This book provides a comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of turbomachinery of any text in the field.
Combining an appropriate level of mathematical background, and computer screen shots, this book walks the reader through modeling and computing, as well as interpreting CFD results. It offers an additional coverage of high-pressure fluid dynamics and meshless approach to provide an overview of the application areas where CFD can be used.
Includes the advanced developments in compressible flow, computational fluid dynamics, and contemporary applications. This book provides computational methods to reflect the modern approaches to aerodynamic design and research in the aeronautical industry and examples of the aerodynamics around you link theory to practical understanding.
