Computers are ubiquitous throughout all life-cycle stages ofengineering, from conceptual design to manufacturing maintenance,repair and replacement. It is essential for all engineers tobe aware of the knowledge behind computer-based tools andtechniques they are likely to encounter. The computationaltechnology, which allows engineers to carry out design, modelling,visualisation, manufacturing, construction and management ofproducts and infrastructure is known as Computer-Aided Engineering(CAE). Engineering Informatics: Fundamentals of Computer-AidedEngineering, 2nd Edition provides the foundation knowledge ofcomputing that is essential for all engineers. This knowledge isindependent of hardware and software characteristics and thus, itis expected to remain valid throughout an engineering career. ThisSecond Edition is enhanced with treatment of new areas such asnetwork science and the computational complexity of distributedsystems. Key features: Provides extensive coverage of almost all aspects ofComputer-Aided Engineering, outlining general concepts such asfundamental logic, definition of engineering tasks andcomputational complexity Every chapter revised and expanded following more than tenyears of experience teaching courses on the basis of the firstedition Covers numerous representation frameworks and reasoningstrategies Considers the benefits of increased computational power,parallel computing and cloud computing Offers many practical engineering examples and exercises, withlecture notes available for many of the topics/chapters from theASCE Technical Council on Computing and Information Technology,Global Centre of Excellence in Computing(www.asceglobalcenter.org), providing a valuable resource forlecturers. Accompanied by a website hosting updates and solutions Engineering Informatics: Fundamentals of Computer-AidedEngineering, 2nd Edition provides essential knowledge oncomputing theory in engineering contexts for students, researchersand practising engineers.

In the past decade, feature-based design and manufacturing has gained some momentum in various engineering domains to represent and reuse semantic patterns with effective applicability. However, the actual scope of feature application is still very limited. Semantic Modeling and Interoperability in Product and Process Engineering provides a systematic solution for the challenging engineering informatics field aiming at the enhancement of sustainable knowledge representation, implementation and reuse in an open and yet practically manageable scale. This semantic modeling technology supports uniform, multi-facet and multi-level collaborative system engineering with heterogeneous computer-aided tools, such as CADCAM, CAE, and ERP. This presented unified feature model can be applied to product and process representation, development, implementation and management. Practical case studies and test samples are provided to illustrate applications which can be implemented by the readers in real-world scenarios. By expanding on well-known feature-based design and manufacturing approach, Semantic Modeling and Interoperability in Product and Process Engineering provides a valuable reference for researchers, practitioners and students from both academia and engineering field.
