There are plenty of books on specialized risk topics but few that deal with the broad diversity and daily applicability of this subject. Risk applications require a robust knowledge of many attributes of this seemingly simple subject. This book teaches the reader through examples and case studies the fundamental (and subtle) aspects of risk - regardless of the specific situation. The text allows the reader to understand the concept of risk analysis... more...

Concise but comprehensive, Structural Elements for Architects and Builders is primarily focused on the design and analysis of structural elements: columns, beams, tension members and their connections. The material is organized into a single, self-sufficient volume, including all necessary data for the preliminary design and analysis of these structural elements in wood, steel, and reinforced concrete. Every chapter contains insights developed by... more...

Whether you're designing a new instrumentation and control (I&C) system, or migrating an existing control system along an upgrade path, you need to have a well-conceived design package - the engineering deliverables and the design process that creates them. This book draws on 25 years of design engineering experience from the author to provide you with a roadmap to understanding the design process, the elements of a successful project, the... more...

Hardly a fighter, the Il-2 was exclusively engineered to take an enormous amount of punishment and still keep the pilot, rear gunner and critical mechanical components unharmed.... more...

This is the story of British naval flying from aircraft carriers, from its conception in World War I to the present day. It includes the types of aircraft and the men who flew them, the carriers and the evolution of their designs, the theaters of war in which they served and their notable achievements and tragedies. It traces navy flying from the early days of the biplane, through the rapid developments during World War Two to the post-war introduction... more...

The step-wise, hands-on approach of "DRM" studies the ways in which design research can best be undertaken to address specific questions. This study gives rise, for the first time, to a generic and systematic design research methodology intended to improve the quality of design research–its academic credibility, industrial significance and societal contribution–by enabling more thorough, efficient and effective procedures. The authors provide a... more...
