With roots in physics and mathematics, engineering mechanics is the basis of all the mechanical sciences: civil engineering, materials science and engineering, mechanical engineering, and aeronautical and aerospace engineering.

Tracking a typical undergraduate course, Mechanics of Materials For Dummies gives you a thorough introduction to this foundational subject. You'll get clear, plain-English explanations of all the topics covered, including principles of equilibrium, geometric compatibility, and material behavior; stress and its relation to force and movement; strain and its relation to displacement; elasticity and plasticity; fatigue and fracture; failure modes; application to simple engineering structures, and more.

  • Tracks to a course that is a prerequisite for most engineering majors
  • Covers key mechanics concepts, summaries of useful equations, and helpful tips

From geometric principles to solving complex equations, Mechanics of Materials For Dummies is an invaluable resource for engineering students!

In general terms, optics is the science of light. More specifically, optics is a branch of physics that describes the behavior and properties of light including visible, infrared, and ultraviolet and the interaction of light with matter.

Optics For Dummies gives you an approachable introduction to optical science, methods, and applications. You'll get plain-English explanations of the nature of light and optical effects; reflection, refraction, and diffraction; color dispersion; optical devices, industrial, medical, and military applications; as well as laser light fundamentals.

  • Tracks a typical undergraduate optics course
  • Detailed explanations of concepts and summaries of equations
  • Valuable tips for study from college professors

If you're taking an optics course for your major in physics or engineering, let Optics For Dummies shed light on the subject and help you succeed!

Especially for switch-mode power supplies (SMPSs), the printed circuit board (PCB) layout is a critical but often under appreciated step in achieving proper performance and reliability. Errors in the PCB layout cause a variety of misbehaviors including poor output voltage regulation, switching jitter, and even device failure. Issues like these should be avoided at all costs, since fixing them usually requires a PCB design modification. However, these pitfalls are easily circumvented if time and thought are spent during the PCB layout process before the first PCBs are ever ordered. This article presents five simple steps to ensure that your next step-down converter’s PCB layout is robust and ready for prototyping. When designing a server, tablet, or electronic point-ofsale machine, a best-practice option with the least risk is to simply copy the PCB layout example found on the evaluation module (EVM) and shown in the datasheet. However, this may not always be possible for various reasons. This article was created for these cases and details a five-step procedure to design a good PCB layout for any TPS62xxx integrated-switch, step-down converter. The internal MOSFETs and integrated loop-compensation circuitry greatly simplify the PCB layout of these devices by reducing the difficulty and time required to do the PCB layout. The versatile TPS62130A is used as the example step-down converter, which can be used in each of the above applications.
