A basic text meeting requirements of core courses in this area. Apart from covering all necessary topics, the book gives procedures, standards and specifications for materials and their testing, as per conditions and practices prevalent in the country. Trade names, compositions, properties and applications of engineering materials commonly used in industry have been given in the form of tables. A large number of schematic diagrams, engineering curves, tables and microstructures have been included to make the approach of the subject more illustrative, informative and demonstrative.
This book is aimed at students of architecture and young practising architects. Through its detailed descriptions of glass, concrete, wood, metals and plastics - covering their unique properties, histories and various forms. Each section features 10-12 case studies including plans, sections, elevations and details, together with colour photographs illustrating the inspired and widely varied ways in which these materials can be applied.
Bestselling author Ashby guides readers through the process of selecting materials on the basis of their design suitability. Many excellent attribute RmapsS are included, which enable complex comparative information to be readily grasped. Full-color photos and illustrations throughout aid the understanding of concepts.
Strength of Materials provides a comprehensive overview of the latest theory of strength of materials. The unified theory presented in this book is developed around three concepts: Hooke's Law, Equilibrium Equations, and Compatibility conditions. The first two of these methods have been fully understood, but clearly are indirect methods with limitations. Through research, the authors have come to understand compatibility conditions, which, until now, had remained in an immature state of development. This method, the Integrated Force Method (IFM) couples equilibrium and compatibility conditions to determine forces directly. The combination of these methods allows engineering students from a v...
"In this book we offer the informed and reflective practioner as the ideal agent for mediating between the practice and theory of language teaching. Some of the contributors might be labelled teachers, some materials developers, some applied linguists, some teacher trainers and some publishers, but all of them share four things in common: they have all had expereince as teachers of a second or foreign language, they have all contributed to the development of second language materials, they have are all well informed about developments in linguistic and psycholinguistic theory and they all have respect for the teacher as the person with the power to decide what actually happens in the classroom." --From the Introduction>
Strength of materials is that branch of engineering concerned with the deformation and disruption of solids when forces other than changes in position or equilibrium are acting upon them. The development of our understanding of the strength of materials has enabled engineers to establish the forces which can safely be imposed on structure or components, or to choose materials appropriate to the necessary dimensions of structures and components which have to withstand given loads without suffering effects deleterious to their proper functioning. This excellent historical survey of the strength of materials with many references to the theories of elasticity and structures is based on an extens...
PERFECT FOR NEW AND SEASONED EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATORS AND CARE GIVERS, this book consists of curriculum plans for incorporating teacher made materials that are developmentally appropriate and that really do teach. The materials are categorized in the book according to the curriculum areas, such as art, dramatic play, language, math, science, music and social studies. A consistent format is used for each material/activity. Included are the objectives which describe the educational value of the particular material and related themes. The materials describe all of the resources needed to construct each material. Step by step directions for constructing each material for introducing each piece of material to the children are also included.
