Introductory Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics: Basic Concepts
By J. Richard Elliott, Carl T. Lira
Mar 8, 2012
The authors introduce the two basic premises of the first and second "laws" of thermodynamics: overall energy is conserved (you can't get something for nothing) and overall entropy changes are greater than or equal to zero (generation of disorder results in lost work).
Sustainable Engineering: An Introduction to Sustainability
By David T. Allen, David R. Shonnard
Jan 26, 2012
Engineers in the 21st century will need to design for energy efficiency, mass efficiency, and low environmental emissions. Both near and long-term steps are needed reduce fossil resource consumption and approach zero waste generation from engineered processes and products.
Introduction to High-Speed Signaling
By Kyung Suk (Dan) Oh, Xing Chao (Chuck) Yuan
Nov 9, 2011
This chapter explains the means by which the book High-Speed Signaling: Jitter Modeling, Analysis, and Budgeting offers a comprehensive discussion of high-speed signal integrity engineering.
Introduction to Separation Process Engineering
By Phillip C. Wankat
Aug 29, 2011
Since separations are ubiquitous in chemical plants and petroleum refineries, chemical engineers must be familiar with a variety of separation methods. This chapter introduces the importance of separations, the concept of equilibrium, mass transfer, and problem-solving methods.
Advanced Mechanics of Materials and Applied Elasticity: Analysis of Stress
By Ansel C. Ugural, Saul K. Fenster
Jul 20, 2011
This chapter reviews of some important fundamentals of statics and mechanics of solids, the concept of stress, modes of load transmission, general sign convention for stress and force resultants, and analysis and design principles; as well as a discussion of treatment for changing the components of the state of stress given in one set of coordinate axes to any other set of rotated axes, as well as variation of stress within and on the boundaries of a load-carrying member.
Introduction to Chemical Process Safety
By Daniel A. Crowl, Joseph F. Louvar
Jul 6, 2011
As chemical process technology becomes more complex, chemical engineers will need a more detailed and fundamental understanding of safety. The authors of this book set out the fundamentals of chemical process safety in this introduction.
Notes on Digital Signal Processing: Overview of Sampling Techniques
By C. Britton Rorabaugh
Jan 26, 2011
This note discusses the difference between implicit and explicit sampling. It introduces three different mathematical models of explicit sampling techniques—ideal sampling, natural sampling, and instantaneous sampling.
Essentials of Chemical Reaction Engineering: Mole Balances
By H. Scott Fogler
Nov 22, 2010
Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRE) principles can be applied in many areas, such as modeling smog in the L.A. basin, understanding the digestive system of a hippopotamus, or using wetlands to degrade toxic chemicals. This chapter develops the first building block of chemical reaction engineering, mole balances.
Understanding Digital Signal Processing: Discrete Sequences and Systems
By Richard G. Lyons
Nov 15, 2010
In this introduction to his book, Richard G. Lyons defines the terminology used in digital signal processing, illustrates the various ways of graphically representing discrete signals, establishes the notation used to describe sequences of data values, presents the symbols used to depict signal processing operations, and briefly introduces the concept of a linear discrete system.
Introduction to Power Integrity for I/O Interfaces
By Vishram S. Pandit, Myoung Joon Choi, Woong Hwan Ryu
Oct 28, 2010
It is becoming increasingly essential to determine not only the PDN noise, but also the margin degradation due to the noise coupling to signals. System designers need to consider a concurrent design methodology to evaluate power integrity and its effects on signal integrity.
Petroleum Reservoir Engineering Practice: Porosity of Reservoir Rocks
By Nnaemeka Ezekwe
Sep 16, 2010
Since porosity data are very important in many reservoir engineering calculations, this introductory chapter reviews basic concepts in the determination of rock porosities.
Power Integrity Analysis and Management for Integrated Circuits: Power, Delivering Power, and Power Integrity
By Raj Nair, Donald Bennett
Jun 10, 2010
This chapter covers power, delivering power, and power integrity, with a focus on integrated circuits and systems.
Introduction to Notes on Digital Signal Processing: Navigating the DSP Landscape
By C. Britton Rorabaugh
Jan 18, 2010
This introduction to Notes on Digital Signal Processing explains the book's method of documenting in-depth explorations of some of the "nooks and crannies" in DSP that often are glossed over in traditional texts.
Towards Socially Responsible Innovation: An Interview with the Authors of Citizen Engineer
By Diann Daniel, David Douglas, John Boutelle, Greg Papadopoulos
Oct 29, 2009
In this interview with David Douglas, Greg Papadopoulos, and John Boutelle, you’ll learn how engineers can take a more visible role in shaping the world.
Applying Design for Six Sigma to Software and Hardware Systems: Requirements Flow-Down
By Eric Maass, Patricia D. McNair
Oct 13, 2009
This chapter covers the system requirements flow-down, which is the beginning of the Design phase of the RADIOV DFSS process, initiating activities for predictive engineering.
Beyond the Black Cloud: Looking at Lifecycles as a Citizen Engineer
By David Douglas, John Boutelle, Greg Papadopoulos
Sep 2, 2009
This introduction to the book "Citizen Engineer" challenges engineers to focus not on eco-efficiency but on “eco-effectiveness,” or designing products in a way that actually replenishes and nourishes the environment rather than simply using up natural resources.
Signal and Power Integrity: Time and Frequency Domains
By Eric Bogatin
Jul 22, 2009
In this chapter, learn the basic properties of signals in preparation for looking at how they interact with interconnects.

By Joseph A. Shaeiwitz, Richard C. Bailie, Richard Turton, Wallace B. Whiting
Mar 25, 2009
It is essential that chemical engineers be able to communicate visually in order to avoid potentially serious consequences.This chapter covers diagrams for understanding chemical processes.
Introduction to a Signal Integrity Engineer's Companion
By David Ireland, Greg Edlund, Geoff Lawday
Jun 26, 2008
SI engineers need innovative thinking if they are to keep pace with the digital bandwidth race.
