Reverse Engineering: Mechanisms, Structures, Systems & Materials by Robert Messler free download.

A comprehensive look at reverse engineering as a legitimate learning, design, and troubleshooting tool

This unique book examines the often underappreciated and occasionally maligned technique of reverse engineering. More than a shortcut for the lazy or unimaginative to reproduce an artless copy of an existing creation, reverse engineering is an essential brick – if not a keystone – in the pathway to a society’s technological advancement.

Written by an engineer who began teaching after years in industry, Reverse Engineering reviews this meticulous analytical process with a breadth and depth as never before. Find out how to:

  • Learn by “mechanical dissection”
  • Deduce the role, purpose, and functionality of a designed entity
  • Identify materials-of-construction and methods-of-manufacture by observation alone
  • Assess the suitability of a design to purpose from form and fit

The rich heritage of engineering breakthroughs enabled by reverse engineering is also discussed. This is not a dry textbook. It is the engaging and enlightening account of the journey of engineering from the astounding creations of ancient cultures to what, with the aid of reverse engineering, promises to be an even more astounding future!

Coverage includes:

  • Methods of product teardown
  • Failure analysis and forensic engineering
  • Deducing or inferring role, purpose, and functionality during reverse engineering
  • The Antikythera mechanism
  • Identifying materials-of-construction
  • Inferring methods-of-manufacture or -construction
  • Construction of Khufu’s pyramid
  • Assessing design suitability
  • Value and production engineering
  • Reverse engineering of materials and substances
  • Reverse engineering of broken, worn, or obsolete parts for remanufacture
  • The law and the ethics of reverse engineering
Reverse Engineering should be regarded as an essential skill in the 21st century. Great work by the author to introduce this useful discipline.

The Semantic Turn: A New Foundation for Design by Klaus Krippendorff pdf free download

The Semantic Turn: A New Foundation for Design by Klaus Krippendorff pdf free download

Description:

The Semantic Turn: A New Foundation for Design by Klaus Krippendorff pdf free download.

Responding to cultural demands for meaning, user-friendliness, and fun as well as the opportunities of the emerging information society, The Semantic Turn boldly outlines a new science for design that gives designers previously unavailable grounds on which to state their claims and validate their designs. It sets the stage by reviewing the history of semantic concerns in design, presenting their philosophical roots, examining the new social and technological challenges that professional designers are facing, and offering distinctions among contemporary artifacts that challenge designers.

Written by Klaus Krippendorff, recognized designer and distinguished scholar of communication and language use, the book builds an epistemological bridge between language/communication theory and human-centered conceptions of contemporary artifacts. Clarifying how the semantic turn goes beyond product semantics and differs from other approaches to meaning, Krippendorff develops four new theories of how artifacts make sense and presents a series of meaning-sensitive design methods, illustrated by examples, and evaluative techniques that radically depart from the functionalist and technology-centered tradition in design.

An indispensable guide for the future of the design profession, this book outlines not only a science for design that encourages asking and answering new kinds of questions, it also provides concepts and a vocabulary that enables designers to better partner with the more traditional disciplines of engineering, ergonomics, ecology, cognitive science, information technology, management, and marketing.

His trajectory of artificiality, he has developed in his book is a great metaphor to frame and conceptualize some important developments in the design professions. I could imagine, because also some students told me, that this book is in some parts complex to understand, but it is also one of the exceptional readings on a theoretical which reframes the design professions for the future. I think it is a must for designers and the once who teaches design, even if we don’t agree with all the statements made. It is also a great starting point to get involved in a theoretical design discourse.

Description:

Project Engineering: The Essential Toolbox for Young Engineers.

For newly hired young engineers assigned to their first real ‘project’, there has been little to offer in the way of advice on ‘where to begin’, ‘what to look out for and avoid’, and ‘how to get the job done right’. This book gives this advice from an author with long experience as senior engineer in government and industry (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Exxon-Mobil).
Beginning with guidance on understanding the typical organizational structure of any type of technical firm or company, author Plummer incorporates numerous hands-on examples and provides help on getting started with a project team, understanding key roles, and avoiding common pitfalls. In addition, he offers unique help on first-time experiences of working in other countries with engineering cultures that can be considerably different from the US.

•Reviews essentials of management for any new engineer suddenly thrust into responsibility
•Emphasizes skills that can get you promoted―and pitfalls that can get you fired
•Expanded case study to show typical evolution of a new engineer handed responsibility for a major design project

Review

“Project Engineering is an excellent reference work on the basis of launching an engineering career amd staying on the right course.”

“Project Engineering was written with two goals in mind: helping the freshly minted engineer survive his or her first foray into the workforce and aiding the established working engineer as he or she seeks to advance to a leadership oisition.”

“Beginning with a description of the scope of a project engineer’s typical areas of responsilbiliy, Plummer noted that they run the gamut from core planning to safety, risk management, cost control, and scheduling.”

Civil Engineering, Ray Bert
