4434Fundamentals of compressible Flow Mechanics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=302314
This book, Fundamentals of Compressible Flow, describes the fundamentals of compressible flow phenomena for engineers and others. This book is designed to replace the book(s) or instructor's notes for the compressible flow in (mostly) undergraduate classes for engineering/science students. The structure of this book is such that many of the chapters can be used independently.Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering I
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=342841
The course focuses on the creation, manipulation, transmission, and reception of information by electronic means. Elementary signal theory; time- and frequency-domain analysis; Sampling Theorem. Digital information theory; digital transmission of analog signals; error-correcting codes.A First Course in Fluid Mechanics for Engineers
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=837078
This is a free textbook offered by BookBoon.'A good knowledge of Fluid mechanics is essential for Chemical, Mechanical and Civil engineers. As a result it is taught at a very early stage in degree courses on those disciplines.A First Course in Fluid Mechanics covers the basics of the engineering fluid mechanics without delving into deeper more mathematical concepts.Building from most basic concepts such as physical properties of fluids, it covers the topics in fluid statics and dynamics. Hydrostatic pressure, buoyancy and forces on immersed bodies are discussed under fluid statics.Under fluid dynamics, Bernoulli’s principle is introduced. Furthermore, the nature of fluid flows is discussed in engineering context. Laminar and turbulent flows in pipes are explained in detail.Finally hydraulic design is discussed paying attention to pump capacity calculations.This textbook is levelled at first year undergraduate students.'A First Course on Aerodynamics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=840276
This is a free textbook offered by BookBoon.'A First Course on Aerodynamics is designed to introduce the basics of aerodynamics to the unfamiliar reader. This text avoids lengthy and complicated derivations, focusing on primary equations and fundamental concepts. Detailed figures and explanations of important mathematical equations are interspersed throughout the text. This e-book can be downloaded free of charge.The field of aerodynamics studies the motion of air around an object, such as an aircraft. After introducing fundamental concepts such as fluid flow, Thin Airfoil Theory, and Finite Wing Theory, A First Course on Aerodynamics presents the fundamentals of three key topics: Inviscid Compressible Flow, Viscous Flow, and wind tunnels. Important subtopics include one dimensional flow, quasi one dimensional flow, oblique shocks and expansion waves, boundary layer, and low speed and supersonic speed wind tunnels.Following each chapter are multiple choice questions, designed to help the reader put theoretical concepts into practice and identify equations that are vital to the continued study of aerodynamics. A list of references for further reading is included at the end of the text.'CAD-CAM & Rapid prototyping Application Evaluation
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=512207
This is a free, online textbook from Bookboon.com. "CAD-CAM systems are probably the most significant development in the field of new technology related to engineering, design and drafting in all technical spheres. These systems find application in all branches of modern design. In current publication the author describes via review, analysis and case studies the state of art in the selection, application and implementation of such systems. New manufacturing technologies that build parts on a layer-by-layer basis are also analyzed. Using these technologies, manufacturing time for parts is rapid. A host of related technologies that are used to fabricate physical objects directly from Computer-Aided Design data sources are reviewed.״Chemical Engineering Process Dynamics and Controls
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=433220
״״This electronic textbook is a student-contributed open-source text covering the materials used at the University of Michigan in the senior level controls course." The authors cover "a variety of approaches to reduce or manage this uncertainty through the use of robust designs, dynamic systems theory, nonlinear dynamics, control theory, and statistics.״Control Engineering An introduction with the use of Matlab
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=795415
This is a free textbook from BookBoon.'The book covers the basic aspects of linear single loop feedback control theory. Explanations of the mathematical concepts used in classical control such as root loci, frequency response and stability methods are explained by making use of MATLAB plots but omitting the detailed mathematics found in many textbooks. There is a chapter on PID control and two chapters provide brief coverage of state variable methods. The approach adopted allows more time to be devoted to controller design by different methods, to compare the results and also to examine the effects of plant parameter variations.'Current Research in Nuclear Reactor Technology in Brazil and Worldwide
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=736622
This is a free online textbook offered by InTech.'The aim of this book is to disseminate state-of-the-art research and advances in the area of nuclear reactors technology. The book was divided in two parts.Topics discussed in the first part of this compilation include: experimental investigation and computational validation of thermal stratification in PWR reactors piping systems, new methods in doppler broadening function calculation for nuclear reactors fuel temperature, isothermal phase transformation of uranium-zirconium-niobium alloys for advanced nuclear fuel, reactivity Monte Carlo burnup simulations of enriched gadolinium burnable poison for PWR fuel, utilization of thermal analysis technique for study of uranium-molybdenum fuel alloy, probabilistic safety assessment applied to research reactors, and a review on the state-of-the art and current trends of next generation reactors. The second part includes: thermal hydraulics study for a ultra high temperature reactor with packed sphere fuels, benefits in using lead-208 coolant for fast reactors and accelerator driven systems, nuclear power as a basis for future electricity production in the world: Generation III and IV reactors, nanostructural materials and shaped solids for improvement and energetic effectiveness of nuclear reactors safety and radioactive wastes, multilateral nuclear approach to nuclear fuel cycles, and a cold analysis of the Fukushima accident.'Electric Drive Dimensioning and Tuning
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=778517
'This book is intended primarily for the university-level learners of an electromechanical profile, including the bachelor and master students majored in electrical engineering and mechatronics. It will help also technicians and engineers of respective specialities who have completed the basics of electric drive. The proper choice of the driving equipment is discussed in the first three sections. In the last three sections, the control systems are discussed which implement motor speed, position, flux, and torque management, realise coordinated motion of multiple mechanisms, and convert information of the automatic process.'Electromagnetism for Electronic Engineers
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=513262
This is a free, online textbook offered by Bookboon.com. "This introduction to electromagnetic theory emphasises applications in electronic engineering. The book explores the relationship between fundamental principles and the idealisations of electric circuit theory. Attention is drawn to the effects of parasitic capacitance and inductance, to electromagnetic screening and to the effects of propagation delay. The text includes numerical and approximate methods for calculating resistance capacitance and inductance. With its clear presentation of both theoretical and practical topics this is an ideal introductory text for degree students.״
