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 Electrical and Computer Engineering

This free textbook was written for an experimental freshman course, but is now an elective that most students take before the circuits course for electrical and computer engineering students. "The first three chapters of this book provide a fairly complete coverage of complex numbers, the functions ex and ejθ, and phasors. Our department philosophy is that these topics must be understood if a student is to succeed in electrical and computer engineering. These three chapters may also be used as a supplement to a circuits course. A measured pace of presentation, taking between sixteen and eighteen lectures, is sufficient to cover all but the advanced sections in Complex Numbers through Phasors.״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.'A WikiTextBook for Introductory Mechanics

This is a free, online textbook offered in conjunction with MIT's OpenCourseWare. "This e-Book is a first step toward a shift in the role of the printed textbook from authoritative serial repository to modular, customizable, linkable, interactive hub. The ideal modern textbook should provide a clear overview of the domain, short summaries of key content, links to more detailed online source material, embedded self-assessment, and a vehicle for instant student feedback. This open-source e-Book for introductory mechanics uses ideas from modeling physics to encourage strategic, concept-based problem solving and employs a wiki format to enable multiple parallel organizations of the material, links to resources and student comments.״ This e-Book is a first step toward a shift in the role of the printed textbook from authoritative serial repository to modular, customizable, linkable, interactive hub.
