The New Engineering presents an engineering science that is conceptually and mathematically much simpler than conventional engineering. The simplicity results from abandoning contrived parameters such as resistances and coefficients and moduluses.

The reasons for the choice of energy sources are many. There is a need to know the options available, the need to harness some of these sources efficiently and effectively and above all the environmental concerns these energy sources give rise to.
by Bernard L. Cohen - Plenum Press
Cohen provides scientifically sound risk analyses of the energy options that he believes must be exercised in the next 10 years. This work stands opposed to some recent greenhouse effect-oriented titles by proposing more nuclear power plants.
Engineering acoustics is the study of the generation and manipulation of sound waves, from an engineering perspective. The book describes some of the fundamental principles of acoustics, it requires knowledge of calculus and differential equations.
