Residential Design Using AutoCAD 2024

Residential Design Using AutoCAD 2024 is an introductory level tutorial which uses residential design exercises as the means to teach you AutoCAD 2024. Each book comes with access to extensive video instruction in which the author explains the most common tools and techniques used when designing residential buildings using AutoCAD 2024. After completing this book you will have a well-rounded knowledge of Computer Aided Drafting that can be used in the industry and the satisfaction of having completed a set of residential drawings. This textbook starts with a basic introduction to AutoCAD 2024. The first three chapters are intended to get you familiar with the user interface and the most common menus and tools. Throughout the rest of the book you will design a residence through to its completion. Using step-by-step tutorial lessons, the residential project is followed through to create elevations, sections, details, etc. Throughout the project, new AutoCAD commands are covered at the appropriate time. Focus is placed on the most essential parts of a command rather than an exhaustive review of every sub-feature of a particular command. The Appendix contains a bonus section covering the fundamental principles of engineering graphics that relate to architecture. This book also comes with extensive video instruction as well as bonus chapters that cover must know commands, sketching exercises, a roof study workbook and much more. About the Videos Each book includes access to extensive video training created by author Daniel Stine. The videos make it easy to see the exact menu selections made by the author while he describes how and why each step is made making it straightforward and simple to learn AutoCAD. These videos allow you to become familiar with the menu selections and techniques before you begin the tutorial. By watching these videos you will be more confident in what you are doing and have a better understanding of the desired outcome of each lesson. The videos cover the following: User Interface Getting Started Draw Tools Modify Tools Annotation Floor Plans Exterior Elevations Sections Interior Design Plotting

Application of Numerical Methods in Engineering Problems Using MATLAB®

Examines the application of numerical methods to obtain the deflection, frequency, and buckling loads. Explains the application of numerical methods for solving motion equations. Includes numerous practical and applicable examples throughout.

SOLIDWORKS 2023 Intermediate Skills

This title broadens your SOLIDWORKS knowledge base by covering such features as surveys, lofts and boundaries, the use of multibodies, generating engineering drawings and other SOLIDWORKS functions that are critical for the effective use of this powerful software. It uses a step by step tutorial approach with real world projects. This book also features a Quick-Reference-Guide to the SOLIDWORKS 2023 commands, icons, and customised hotkeys. The book is for the mid-level user, who is already familiar with the SOLIDWORKS program. It is also a great resource for the more CAD literate individuals who want to expand their knowledge of the different features that SOLIDWORKS 2023 has to offer.

Machine Learning for Civil and Environmental Engineers

Accessible and practical framework for machine learning applications and solutions for civil and environmental engineers This textbook introduces engineers and engineering students to the applications of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and machine intelligence (MI) in relation to civil and environmental engineering projects and problems, presenting state-of-the-art methodologies and techniques to develop and implement algorithms in the engineering domain. Through real-world projects like analysis and design of structural members, optimizing concrete mixtures for site applications, examining concrete cracking via computer vision, evaluating the response of bridges to hazards, and predicating water quality and energy expenditure in buildings, this textbook offers readers in-depth case studies with solved problems that are commonly faced by civil and environmental engineers. The approaches presented range from simplified to advanced methods, incorporating coding-based and coding-free techniques. Professional engineers and engineering students will find value in the step-by-step examples that are accompanied by sample databases and codes for readers to practice with. Written by a highly qualified professional with significant experience in the field, Machine Learning includes valuable information on: The current state of machine learning and causality in civil and environmental engineering as viewed through a scientometrics analysis, plus a historical perspective Supervised vs. unsupervised learning for regression, classification, and clustering problems Explainable and causal methods for practical engineering problems Database development, outlining how an engineer can effectively collect and verify appropriate data to be used in machine intelligence analysis A framework for machine learning adoption and application, covering key questions commonly faced by practitioners This textbook is a must-have reference for undergraduate/graduate students to learn concepts on the use of machine learning, for scientists/researchers to learn how to integrate machine learning into civil and environmental engineering, and for design/engineering professionals as a reference guide for undertaking MI design, simulation, and optimization for infrastructure.

Essential MATLAB for Engineers and Scientists

Essential MATLAB for Engineers and Scientists, Eighth Edition provides a concise and balanced overview of MATLAB's functionality, covering both fundamentals and applications. The essentials are illustrated throughout, featuring complete coverage of the software's windows and menus. Program design and algorithm development are presented, along with many examples from a wide range of familiar scientific and engineering areas. This edition has been updated to include the latest MATLAB versions through 2021a. This is an ideal book for a first course on MATLAB, but is also ideal for an engineering problem-solving course using MATLAB.

Need A Book We Don't Have?

  • RCBC Library is part of the Burlington County Library System (BCLS)

    • Your RCBC Library barcode allows you to check out physical material at other BCLS branches. (A separate BCLS Library card is needed to access their online resources.) 

    • If another branch has a book that you are looking for, either call them to place it on hold for you, or as a RCBC librarian to call for you.

    • Note: a book that shows up as being in another branch may be currently in use by another patron. Save yourself a trip and call to double check the book's availability!

  • Inter-library Loans

    • If a book that you want is not available in the RCBC Library or BCLS, we can attempt to order the book from an outside library to be delivered to the RCBC Library. Note: this method may take 2 weeks or longer for the book to arrive at RCBC.

    • To order a book via inter-library loan, please either fill out a blank form from JerseyCat or contact Debbie Kolodziej at
