Engineering design concepts are as fundamental to undergraduate engineering education as the traditional sciences. This comprehensive text provides well-organized, flexible coverage of engineering design fundamentals including problem formulation, concept generation, project planning, engineering economics, decision making, and optimization. These topics are developed from an interdisciplinary perspective that is independent of level of technical sophistication. Thus the book can be used in design courses within any engineering discipline and at any level from first year to capstone design. New Features: This second edition significantly expands upon the extensive graphics, worked-out examples, and large set of exercises and design projects contained in the first edition, while retaining the informal reading style praised by students and faculty. Substantially expanded coverage of the professional, social, and environmental context of engineering design, including several new case studies More than three dozen new worked-out example problems Over 70 new end-of-chapter exercises Revised and expanded treatment of the problem formulation phase of design New sections on optimization software and integer programming Companion Website with hundreds of Microsoft PowerPoint slides and an innovative interactive Instructor's Manual containing hundreds of exercises and 50 design projects coded with respect to design and analysis skills, level of technical sophistication, and engineering discipline.Hyman, Barry I. is the author of 'Fundamentals of Engineering Design', published 2002 under ISBN 9780130467126 and ISBN 013046712X.
