This text provides undergraduate students with a practical introduction to the design and analysis of experiments, particularly in the social and behavioral sciences. Its straight forward approach, step-by-step descriptions, worked examples, and exercises should combine to make important concepts and methods more accessible to readers of diverse backgrounds. For its second edition the book has been revised to give a clearer understanding of how experiments are designed and how the results are interpreted. It features: a new chapter on estimation procedures; a new chapter on the analysis of two-factor within-subjects design; a new chapter combining discussions of type I, II, and cumulative type I errors with expanded coverage of error control and sample size; a revised discussion of linear correlation and regression; expanded discussions of the analysis of experiments with more detailed examinations of power and effect size and additional problems and exercises, some with detailed answers provided in an appendix.
Optimize Designs in Less Time
An essential element of equipment and system design, computer aided design (CAD) is commonly used to simulate potential engineering problems in order to help gauge the magnitude of their effects. Useful for producing 3D models or drawings with the selection of predefined objects, Computer Aided Design: A Conceptual Approach directs readers on how to effectively use CAD to enhance the process and produce faster designs with greater accuracy.
Learn CAD Quickly and Efficiently
This handy guide provides practical examples based on different CAD systems, and incorporates automation, mechanism, and customization guidelines, as well as other outputs of CAD in the design process. It explains the mathematical tools used in related operations and covers general topics relevant to any CAD program.
Comprised of 12 chapters, this instructional reference addresses:
Reduce Time by Effectively Using CAD
Computer Aided Design: A Conceptual Approachconcentrates on concept generation, functions as a tutorial for learning any CAD software, and was written with mechanical engineering professionals and post-graduate engineering students in mind.
Chemical Reactor Design and Operation K. R. Westerterp, W. P. M. van Swaaij and A. A. C. M. Beenackers Chemical Reaction Engineering Laboratories, Twente University of Technology, Enschede, The Netherlands This is a comprehensive handbook on the design and operation of chemical reactors which are vital elements in every manufacturing process. The book offers an introduction to the modern literature and covers in depth the relevant theory of chemical reactors. The theory is illustrated by numerous worked examples typical to chemical reaction engineering practice in research, development, design and operation. The examples range from fine chemicals to large scale production and from water purification to metallurgical processes, commencing with simple homogenous model reactors and then moving to the complicated, multi-phase, heterogeneous reactors met with in reality. All the examples are based on the industrial experience of the authors. Much effort is dedicated to the behaviour of reactors in practice and to the capacity, yield and selectivity of the reactor. The book is thoroughly indexed and cross-referenced. This edition will be particularly useful to undergraduate and graduate students studying chemical reactors. Contents Fundamentals of chemical reactor calculations Model reactors: single reactions, isothermal single phase reactor calculations Model reactors: multiple reactions, isothermal single phase reactors Residence time distribution and mixing in continuous flow reactors Influence of micromixing on chemical reactions The role of the heat effect in model reactors Multi-phase reactors, single reactions Multi-phase reactors, multiple reactions Heat effects in multi-phase reactors The authors: The authors have accumulated a long experience both in fine chemicals and in the petrochemicals industry, in Europe as well as abroad. Currently they are jointly responsible for the research work in chemical reaction engineering and process development at Twente University. Several new reactor types and new processes have been developed at their institute and present research interests include gasification, fluidization and gas--liquid reactors, three-phase reactors, high-pressure technology in chemical reaction engineering, thermal behaviour of heterogeneous reactors and computer design and economic evaluation of reaction units and chemical plants.
