Functional and Structured Tensor Analysis for Engineers
by R. M. Brannon
Publisher: The University of Utah 2003
Number of pages: 323
A step-by-step introduction to tensor analysis that assumes you know nothing but basic calculus. Considerable emphasis is placed on a notation style that works well for applications in materials modeling, but other notation styles are also reviewed to help you better decipher the literature. Topics include: matrix and vector analysis, properties of tensors, dyads and outer products, axial vectors, axial tensors, scalar invariants and spectral analysis, geometry, material symmetry such as transverse isotropy, polar decomposition, and vector/tensor calculus theorems such as the divergence theorem and Stokes theorem.

Engineering societies work largely independently on undergraduate education. To explore the potential for enhancing societies role, National Academy of Engineering held a workshop on the engagement of engineering societies in undergraduate education.
by William Neville Rose - Chapman
These two volumes form a most comprehensive and practical treatise on the subject. They show the direct bearing of all principles to engineering practice, and will prove a valuable reference work embracing all the mathematics needed by engineers.

The book, which is interesting, instructive and wide in scope, is the result of many years of experience in teaching science to mining students on the part of one of the authors and several years' practical experience underground by the other.

This book is intended to be a guide to all those inventors, actual or would-be, those who have yet to take their first real steps toward making their new product dreams come true. WRTI is an inventors club based at Southampton Solent University.
