Systems Engineering with SysML/UML: Modeling, Analysis, Design (The OMG Press)
Systems Engineering with SysML/UML: Modeling, Analysis, Design (The OMG Press)
According to the Boeing Commercial Aircraft Company, a Boeing 747-400 aircraft has a maximum gross take-off weight (including a typical 416 passengers, 171 cubic meters of freight in the cargo hold, and over 200,000 kg of fuel) of nearly 400,000 kg. Four behemoth engines push the bird at up to 88 percent of the speed of sound for unbelievable...
MEMS and Microstructures in Aerospace Applications
MEMS and Microstructures in Aerospace Applications

The promise of MEMS for aerospace applications has been germinating for years, and current advances bring the field to the very cusp of fruition. Reliability is chief among the challenges limiting the deployment of MEMS technologies in space, as the requirement of zero failure during the mission is quite stringent for this burgeoning field....

Hydrodynamics of High-Speed Marine Vehicles
Hydrodynamics of High-Speed Marine Vehicles

Hydrodynamics of High-Speed Marine Vehicles discusses hydrodynamic aspects of the three main categories of high-speed marine vehicles, i.e. vessels supported by either the submerged hull, an air cushion or foils. Submerged-hull-supported vessels include planing and semi-displacement vessels. The wave environment, resistance, propulsion,...
