Knovel Math is a Web-enabled library that provides fully documented Mathcad worksheets for
engineering calculations, reducing the time it takes to solve and document
complex math problems. Using Knovel Math, Mathcad users can simply
find the worksheet they need using powerful search tools, download it into
Mathcad and customize it with specific input values for problem solving. Knovel Mathincludes more than 4000 worksheets supporting the
needs of mechanical, civil and structural engineers with further worksheets to
be added in 2010. Using Knovel Math, engineers can quickly access complete and fully
documented worksheets and perform their calculations using either US customary or
metric units. This significantly improves productivity and the audit-ability of
calculations. It ensures consistency, facilitates legacy knowledge transfer and
promotes the adoption of best practices. Knovel Math is web-enabled allowing
engineers to access Mathcad worksheets at any time. Users can search for worksheets using
keywords (eg. beam flexure) or browse through the Mathcad- enabled titles. In addition to the Mathcad worksheets, users
have access to the latest editions of reference titles from which they have
been developed. Worksheets are fully expanded from their original published
form (including all intermediate steps) and are fully editable. Worksheets are available in both U.S. customary
and metric units.
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team £100 to make (about $161 US).
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
