Fundamentals of electronics : DC/AC circuits

Donated by: Mr. Michael Leongson Tan

Author David L. Terrell
Place of Publication Albany
Date of Publication [2000]
Publisher Delmar/Thomson Learning

A “must-have” for introductory DC/AC courses, this comprehensive, easy-to-read text covers basic electronics and the behavior of passive components, circuit analysis, ans systematic troubleshooting at the technician and technologist level. Fundamentals of Electronics: DC/AC Circuits id strongly based on Ohm’s and Kirchoff’s Laws and introduces mathematical analysis only after a solid, intuitive understanding of circuit or device operation has been established. Following this “big-picture” teaching style provides a more logical, systematic approach to learning than does a more typical equation-based method that stresses mechanical use of equations. Full of practical applications, explicit examples, and excellent troubleshooting sections, this complete book on AC’DC truly prepared you to apply your knowledge of electronics to the solution of technical problems. A powerful learning package for the technician of tomorrow. A bountiful resource for the technician of today!


Engineering mechanics: Volume 1, 3rd Ed.

Donated by: Mr. Michael Leongson Tan

Authors J.L. Meriam, L.G. Kraige
Place of Publication New York
Date of Publication [1996]
Publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

This concise and authoritative book emphasizes basic principles and problem formulation. It illustrates both the cohesiveness of the relatively few fundamental ideas in this area and the great variety of problems these ideas solve. All of the problems address principles and procedures inherent in the design and analysis of engineering structures and mechanical systems, with many of the problems referring explicitly to design considerations.

Sample problems are presented in a single page format with comments and cautions keyed to salient points in the solution.
– Illustrations are color coordinated to identify related ideas throughout the book (e.g., red = forces and moments, green = velocity and acceleration).

Introduction to real analysis, 2nd Ed.

Donated by: Mr. Michael Leongson Tan

Authors Robert G. Bartle, Donald R. Sherbert
Place of Publication Singapore
Date of Publication [1992]
Publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Recognizing the increased role of real analysis in economics, management engineering and computer science as well as in the physical sciences, this Second Edition meets the need for an accessible, comprehensive textbook regarding the fundamental concepts and techniques in this area of mathematics. Provides solid coverage of real analysis fundamentals with an emphasis on topics from numerical analysis and approximation theory because of their increased importance to contemporary students. Topics include real numbers, sequences, limits, continuous functions, differentiation, infinite series and more. Topological concepts are now conveniently combined into one chapter. An appendix on logic and proofs helps students in analyzing proofs of theorems.

Microelectronic circuits : analysis and design, 2nd Ed. / Muhammad H. Rashid

Donated by: Mr. Michael Leongson Tan

Place of Publication Singapore
Date of Publication [2012]
Publisher Cengage Learning Asia Pte Ltd

Semiconductor devices and integrated circuits (ICs) are the backbone of modern technology, and thus the study of electronics — which deals with their characteristics and applications — is an integral part of the undergraduate currciculum for students majoring in electrical, electronics, or computer engineering. Traditionally, the basic course in electronics has been a one-year (two-semester) course at most universities and colleges. However, with the emergence of new technologies and university-wide general education requirements, electrical engineering departments are under pressure to reduce basic electronics to a one-semester course. This book can be used fo a one-semester course as well as a two-semester course. The only prerequisite is a course in basic circuit analysis. A one-semester course would cover Chapters 1 through 8, in which the basic techniques for analyzing electronic circuits are introduced using ICs as examples. In a two-semester course, the second semester would focus on detailed analysis of devices and circuits within the ICs and their applications.
The objectives of this book are:
>To develop an understanding of the characteristics of semiconductor devices and commonly used ICs
>To develop skills in analysis and design of both analog and digital circuits
>To introduce students to the various elements of the engineering design process, including formulation of specifications, analysis of alternative solutions, synthesis, decision-making, iterations, consideration of cost factors, simulation, and tolerance issues.


Water-resources engineering

Donated by: Mr. Francis Lorilla

Authors Ray K. Linsley, Joseph B. Franzini
Place of Publication New York
Date of Publication [1964]
Publisher McGraw-Hill

This second edition of Elements of Hydraulic Engineering reflects increased emphasis on water resources planning. Elements of Hydraulic Engineering was the first senior-level book to integrate the broad field of water resources with stress on water-resource management. This edition focuses attention on the planning process and its social and economic implications.
The book introduces water-resources engineering to the undergraduate civil engineering student. It covers the entire field of water-resources engineering, including hydrology, water law, hydraulic structures, economics, and planning.
The material follows the basic courses in fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, engineering economy, and materials. It shows the student how and why these basic concepts are employed in the planning of water-resource projects. As a text for senior courses, the book provides background for further work at the graduate level in both basic theory and professional courses. It is also of value to practicing engineers, particularly where general orientation to a specific problem is desired.
The first five chapters present hydrology, the subject basic to all water-management efforts.

This classic work by one of the world’s foremost hydrologists presents a topic encountered in the many fields of science and engineering where flow through porous media plays a fundamental role. It is the standard work in the field, designed primarily for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of ground water hydrology, soil mechanics, soil physics, drainage and irrigation engineering, and petroleum and chemical engineering. It is highly recommended as well for scientists and engineers already working in these fields.
Throughout this generously illustrated, richly detailed study, which includes a valuable section of exercises and answers, the emphasis is on understanding the phenomena occurring in porous media and on their macroscopic description. The book’s chapter titles reveal its comprehensive coverage: Introduction, Fluids and Porous Matrix Properties, Pressures and Piezometric Head, The Fundamental Fluid Transport Equations in Porous Media, The Equation of Motion of a Homogeneous Fluid, Continuity and Conservation Equations for a Homogeneous Fluid, Solving Boundary and Initial Value Problems, Unconfined Flow and the Dupuit Approximation, Flow of Immiscible Fluids, Hydrodynamic Dispersion, and Models and Analogs.
“Systematic and comprehensive . . . a book that satisfies the highest standards of excellence. . . . Will undoubtedly become the standard reference in this field.” — R. Allen Freeze, IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Water Resources Research.
