Interactive Aerospace Engineering and Design (only Book) by Dava Newman
English | 2001 | ISBN: 0072348208 | 374 pages | PDF | 5 MB

Intended for both majors and non-majors taking a first course in Introduction to Aerospace Engineering or Introduction to Flight, Newman's INTERACTIVE AEROSPACE ENGINEERING & DESIGN text will inspire students with its integrated bound-in CD-ROM (PC & Mac compatible); and with its strong emphasis on introducing the design process in a way beginning students can understand. The text/CD's active visual approach and inclusion of space-oriented topics make it ideal for the changing needs of the Aerospace Engineering field. Newman's book is the first in its course area to include integrated multimedia resources. The CD-ROM, bound in with every book, includes the entire text in pdf form for electronic viewing options. It also integrates extensive animations, QuickTime movies, and Matlab-based simulations to motivate student readers. Quicktime movies of a student design project competition is included to convey the importance of team-oriented design to readers, and a section on human-powered flight points out the design choices made for these types of machines. A gallery of additional full-color illustrations, keyed to the text, is also included on the CD-ROM. Newman also provides strong coverage of basic aerodynamics concepts and applications, fixed-wing aircraft topics, orbital mechanics, satellites & spacecraft, and space mission endeavors.
