Product Performance Evaluation using CAD/CAE book cover

Product Performance Evaluation using CAD/CAE

The Computer Aided Engineering Design Series

This is one book of a four-part series, which aims to integrate discussion of modern engineering design principles, advanced design tools, and industrial design practices throughout the design process. Through this series, the reader will:

  • Understand basic design principles and modern engineering design paradigms.
  • Understand CAD/CAE/CAM tools available for various design related tasks.
  • Understand how to put an integrated system together to conduct product design using the paradigms and tools.
  • Understand industrial practices in employing virtual engineering design and tools for product development.

Mechanical, Aerospace, and Industrial Engineers studying design.  Engineers interested in learning computer design tools such as ProEngineer and SolidWorks in the context of the design process.  Senior and first-year graduate engineering students in Mechanical, Aerospace, Industrial, and Materials Engineering.
