  • Kuang-Hua Chang, Williams Presidential Professor in the School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering (AME), University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK, USA

e-Design is the first book to integrate discussion of computer design tools throughout the design process. Through this book, the reader will understand...

    • basic design principles and all-digital design paradigms.
    • CAD/CAE/CAM tools available for various design related tasks.
    • how to put an integrated system together to conduct All-Digital Design (ADD).
    • Industrial proactices in employing ADD and tools for product development.
