A multidisciplinary introduction to engineering design using real-life case studies. Case Studies in Engineering Design provides students and practising engineers with many practical and accessible case studies which are representative of situations engineers face in professional life, and which incorporate a range of engineering disciplines. Different methodologies of approaching engineering design are identified and explained prior to their application in the case studies. The case studies have been chosen from real-life engineering design projects and aim to expose students to a wide variety of design activities and situations, including those that have incomplete, or imperfect, information. This book encourages the student to be innovative, to try new ideas, whilst not losing sight of sound and well-proven engineering practice. A multidisciplinary introduction to engineering design. Exposes readers to wide variety of design activities and situations. Encourages exploration of new ideas using sound and well-proven engineering practice.

Case Studies in Mechanical Engineering: Decision Making, Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer Stuart Sabol, Engineering Manager - Power Engineering at Power, Energy - USA Using a case study approach, this reference tests the reader’s ability to apply engineering fundamentals to real-world examples and receive constructive feedback Case Studies in Mechanical Engineering provides real life examples of the application of engineering fundamentals. They relate to real equipment, real people and real decisions. They influence careers, projects, companies, and governments. The cases serve as supplements to fundamental courses in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, instrumentation, economics, and statistics. The author explains equipment and concepts to solve the problems and suggests relevant assignments to augment the cases. Graduate engineers seeking to refresh their career, or acquire continuing education will find the studies challenging and rewarding. Each case is designed to be accomplished in one week, earning up to 15 hours of continuing education credit. Each case study provides methods to present an argument, work with clients, recommend action and develop new business. Key features: • Highlights the economic consequences of engineering designs and decisions. • Encourages problem solving skills. • Application of fundamentals to life experiences. • Ability to practice with real life examples. Case Studies in Mechanical Engineering is a valuable reference for mechanical engineering practitioners working in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer and related areas.

The Engineering Council (UK) have reported an encouraging increase in the applications for Engineering Technician (Eng. Tech) registration, both from applicants following a work-based learning program and individuals without formal qualifications but who have verifiable competence through substantial working experiences and self-study. Design Engineer's Case Studies and Examples has been written for these young engineers. The contents have been selected on typical subjects that developing engineers may be expected to cover in their professional career and gives solutions to typical problems that may arise in mechanical design. The subjects covered include the following: Introduction to stress calculations Basic shaft design Beams under bending Keys and spline strength calculations Columns and struts Gears Material selection Conversions and general tables

This new edition follows the original format, which combines a detailed case study - the production of phthalic anhydride - with practical advice and comprehensive background information. Guiding the reader through all major aspects of a chemical engineering design, the text includes both the initial technical and economic feasibility study as well as the detailed design stages. Each aspect of the design is illustrated with material from an award-winning student design project. The book embodies the "learning by doing" approach to design. The student is directed to appropriate information sources and is encouraged to make decisions at each stage of the design process rather than simply following a design method. Thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded, the accompanying text includes developments in important areas and many new references.
