Electric Machinery, 6/e Tablo of Contents ISBN: 0071121935 Price: £21.99 Authors: A.E. Fitzgerald, Charles Kingsley, Stephen Umans (both of Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Pub date: August 2002 New edition (previous ISBN 0071126112) Description: The exciting new sixth edition of this book has been extensively updated while retaining the emphasis on fundamental principles and physical understanding that has been its outstanding feature. It is intended for a junior or senior level course in electric machinery, and contains not only the fundamentals, but some more rigorous material for those instructors wanting to cover more advanced topics. New chapters topics include power electronics as well as speed and torque control of DC and AC motors. This edition has also been expanded with additional examples and practice problems. Features: • The popular interactive computer software MATLAB has been introduced in both examples and practice problems. Also, chapter-ending problems have been added which specifically require the use of MATLAB. An icon has been placed in the margin to indicate those places where MATLAB is used. • The chapter on single- and two-phase motors now includes a generalized analytical formulation for unsymmetrical two-phase induction machines, which is then applied to the general case of a single-phase induction motor running off both its main and auxiliary winding. This formulation is unique to this title and is not found in other text books. • A website for this book includes a downloadable version of the solutions manual, passwordprotected for instructors. It also contains a set of PowerPoint slides for instructors to use in their lectures. Spreadsheet Tools for Engineers: Excel, 2/e ISBN: 0071199764 Price: £28.99 Author: Byron Gottfried (University of Pittsburgh) Pub date: September 2002 New edition (previous ISBN 0071183477) Description: This best-selling Spreadsheet book provides excellent coverage of all versions of Excel including the latest version, Excel 2002. Features: • Instructors and students are given a comprehensive coverage of analytical techniques from which to choose and learn. • The book combines fundamentals of Excel with engineering problem-solving methodology. • Many new and revised problems and examples are given. Foundations of Engineering, 2/e ISBN: 0071195610 Price: £32.99 Authors: Mark Holtzapple, W. Dan Reece (both of Texas A&M University) New edition (previous ISBN 007246240X) Pub date: September 2002 Description: This book gives engineering students a solid foundation for all their future coursework. It provides an overview to the engineering profession, an introduction to the skills they will need to develop, as well as fundamental engineering topics such as thermodynamics, rate processes and Newton’s laws. An important aspect of the book’s approach is the method of engineering accounting, which casts the basic conservation laws (e.g., of energy or mass) as simple “accounting” procedures. This is a unifying concept that helps problem-solving across all engineering disciplines.
