  • Additive Manufacturing Handbookby Adedeji B. Badiru; Vhance V. Valencia; David Liu

    CRC Press 2017; US$ 169.95

    Theoretical and practical interests in additive manufacturing (3D printing) are growing rapidly. Engineers and engineering companies now use 3D printing to make prototypes of products before going for full production. In an educational setting faculty, researchers, and students leverage 3D printing to enhance project-related products. Additive Manufacturing... more...

  • Structural Textile Designby Yasir Nawab; Syed Talha Ali Hamdani; Khubab Shaker

    CRC Press 2017; US$ 199.95

    The properties of woven and knitted fabrics differ largely due to the path yarn follows in the fabric structure. This path determines the fabric?s physical properties, mechanical properties, and appearance. A slight variation to the design may result in entirely different properties for the fabric. Structural Textile Design provides detailed insight... more...
