Ryerson has access to the Morgan & Claypool Synthesis Digital Library of Engineering and Computer Science Collections 1-10. The basic component of the library is a 50- to 100-page “Lecture”; a self-contained electronic book that synthesizes an important research or development topic, authored by an expert contributor to the field. They offer unique value to the reader by providing more analysis and depth than the typical research journal article. They are also more dynamic and convenient than traditional print or digital handbooks, contributed volumes, and monographs. Each title is self contained in an individual PDF file.

Air and Spaceborne Radar Systems by Philippe Lacomme; Eric Normant; Jean-Claude Marchais; Jean-Philippe HardangeA practical tool on radar systems that will be of major help to technicians, student engineers and engineers working in industry and in radar research and development. The many users of radar as well as systems engineers and designers will also find it highly useful. Also of interest to pilots and flight engineers and military command personnel and military contractors. ""This introduction to the field of radar is intended for actual users of radar. It focuses on the history, main principles, functions, modes, properties and specific nature of modern airborne radar. The book examines radar's role within the system when carrying out is assigned missions, showing the possibilities of radar as well as its limitations. Finally, given the changing operational requirements and the potential opened up by modern technological developments, a concluding section describes how radar may evolve in the future. The authors review the current state of the main types of airborne and spaceborne radar systems, designed for specific missions as well as for the global environment of their host aircraft or satellites. They include numerous examples of the parameters of these radars. The emphasis in the book is not only on a particular radar technique, but equally on the main radar functions and missions. Even if a wide range of techniques are described in this book, the focus is on those which are connected to practical applications.
Airworthiness by Filippo De FlorioAirworthiness: An Introduction to Aircraft Certification, Second Edition, offers a practical guide to the regulations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The discussions include the concepts of flight safety and airworthiness; the ICAO and civil aviation authorities; airworthiness requirements; type certifications and the type-certification process; production of products, parts, and appliances; certifications of airworthiness; and rules for "spaceworthiness." The book will be a valuable resource for certification engineers engaged in professional training and practical work in regulatory agencies and aircraft engineering companies. The only airworthiness guide available-a unique single reference covering the requirements of the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation), FAA (the US Federal Aviation Administration) and EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) Demystifies the relevant European and US regulations and helps anyone involved in the manufacture, flying and maintenance of aircraft to understand this complex yet essential topic Now with companion website featuring links to pertinent sources for ease of reference and updates to the book as required, ensuring you have the most up-to-date information at your finger tips

The Cambridge Aerospace Dictionary by Bill GunstonThe Cambridge Aerospace Dictionary is an authoritative and accessible reference useful to scholars and enthusiasts alike. This dictionary is an essential tool for professionals involved in the aerospace industry and flight, and for anyone who must read and understand the technical literature of the aerospace industry and about specific air and spacecraft. It is also an ideal reference for engineering and physics students encountering a subject replete with technical jargon and acronyms. Bill Gunston, one of the most widely read and respected aviation writers, has added more than 5000 new terms and acronyms to this carefully updated volume. Terms used in the dictionary reflect the diverse and international nature of the aerospace materials and organizations. Gunston has scrupulously avoided terms specific to manufacturers, airlines and armed forces in an effort to encourage clear communication and understanding among professionals.
