Up and Running with Autodesk Inventor Nastran 2020 Book Review:

Welcome to the 2nd edition of Up and Running with Autodesk(R) Inventor(R) Nastran(R) 2020 - Simulation for Designers.Inventor Nastran 2020 is a very capable and comprehensive simulation program which covers a broad spectrum of analysis applications including, linear, thermal, buckling, non-linear and the list goes on. In this 2nd edition of the book I have added Fatigue Analysis in addition to updating content to account for the new features in Inventor Nastran 2020 initial release. This book has been written using actual design problems, all of which have greatly benefited from the use of simulation technology. For each design problem, I have attempted to explain the process of applying stress analysis using a straightforward, step by step approach, and have supported this approach with explanation and tips. At all times, I have tried to anticipate what questions a designer or development engineer would want to ask whilst he or she were performing the task using Inventor Nastran. The design problems have been carefully chosen to cover the core aspects and linear analysis capabilities of Inventor Nastran and their solutions are universal, so you should be able to apply the knowledge quickly to your own design problems with more confidence. Chapter 1 provides an overview of Inventor Nastran and the user interface and features so that you are well-grounded in core concepts and the software's strengths, limitations and work around. Each design problem illustrates a different unique approach and demonstrates different key aspects of the software, making it easier for you to pick and choose which design problem you want to cover first; therefore, having read chapter 1 it is not necessary to follow the rest of the book sequentially, Except Chapter 11 and 12.In this edition I have included two new chapters focusing around Fatigue Analysis. Chapter 11 provides an overview of Fatigue, including a hand calculation, and Chapter 12 goes through step by step guidance on how to perform Multi-Axial Fatigue analysis within Inventor Nastran. This book is primarily designed for self-paced learning by individuals but can also be used in an instructor-led classroom environment. I hope you will find this book enjoyable and at the same time very beneficial to you and your business. I will be very pleased to receive your feedback, to help me improve future editions.

The Future of Making Book Review:

Prepare yourself: How things are made is changing. The digital and physical are uniting, from innovative methods to sense and understand our world to machines that learn and design in ways no human ever could; from 3D printing to materials with properties that literally stretch possibility; from objects that evolve to systems that police themselves. The results will radically change our world--and ourselves. The Future of Making illustrates these transformations, showcasing stories and images of people and ideas at the forefront of this radical wave of innovation. Designers, architects, builders, thought leaders--creators of all kinds--have contributed to this look at the materials, connections, and inventions that will define tomorrow. But this book doesn't just catalog the future; it lays down guidelines to follow, new rules for how things are created, that make it the ultimate handbook for anyone who wants to embrace the true future of making.

Shape Memory Alloy Engineering Book Review:

Shape Memory Alloy Engineering introduces materials, mechanical, and aerospace engineers to shape memory alloys (SMAs), providing a unique perspective that combines fundamental theory with new approaches to design and modeling of actual SMAs as compact and inexpensive actuators for use in aerospace and other applications. With this book readers will gain an understanding of the intrinsic properties of SMAs and their characteristic state diagrams, allowing them to design innovative compact actuation systems for applications from aerospace and aeronautics to ships, cars, and trucks. The book realistically discusses both the potential of these fascinating materials as well as their limitations in everyday life, and how to overcome some of those limitations in order to achieve proper design of useful SMA mechanisms. Discusses material characterization processes and results for a number of newer SMAs Incorporates numerical (FE) simulation and integration procedures into commercial codes (Msc/Nastran, Abaqus, and others) Provides detailed examples on design procedures and optimization of SMA-based actuation systems for real cases, from specs to verification lab tests on physical demonstrators One of the few SMA books to include design and set-up of demonstrator characterization tests and correlation with numerical models
