"Predictive Lifecycle Assessment"
by Dr.-Ing. Hans Sippel and
Dr.-Ing. Martin Küssner
This booklet is a wake-up call rather than a new invention. Tools,
processes and procedures that are in daily use in product development are
not always used to their full capability.
The authors´ intention is
to sharpen the mindset in terms of the evaluation of the environmental,
economic and social impact of product development from a holistic
perspective view and to encourage the reader to assess these impacts in a
predictive way upfront.
"Design-To-Cost in Engineering"
In September 2009 the authors
Dr.-Ing. Hans Sippel and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Erich Schelkle published the first
time a book entitled
"Design-To-Cost in Engineering" still seems to be underestimated in the
Design Process, whether it is in Conceptual or Detailed Design. Therefore,
the authors would like to dedicate this book to how Simulation Tools could
assist helping to gain more insight in terms of "Design-to-Cost" in the
The authors also would like to encourage readers to
think about Innovation in terms of "Function" and related "Cost", either
being direct or indirect cost. Design-To-Cost: Just Buzzwords? For sure
not, as this is increasingly deciding about "Success" or "Failure" of a
In the book published in March 2009 the authors Dr.-Ing. Hans Sippel
and Dr.-Ing. Jacek Marczyk report about
"Application Strategies of
Robust Design & Complexity Management in Engineering"
This book is targeted on making the understanding and application
strategies of "Robust Design and Complexity Management in Engineering"
more tangible. The buzzword "Time-To-Market" is
very well known since quite some time but still determines "Success" or
"Failure" of a company.
The necessity to develop product Re-Designs or
completely New Innovative Design concepts more and more rapidly is putting
high pressure on these companies like never before. As Robustness and
Complexity are attributes of a product which can be measured they should
become a design target from day one. The book´s intention, therefore, is
not to be considered as a scientific textbook but to introduce Robust
Design Concepts and Complexity Management to a wide engineering audience
using examples. .

"Approximation Techniques for Engineers: Second
- Designed to be
self-contained and written for engineers.
- Provides computational examples and implementable algorithms.
- Historical and modern references are
provided at the end of each chapter.
- Features eleven new
sections and two new chapters.
- Applicable for the electrical,
aerospace, and mechanical engineering fields.
→ Authors Bio
edition includes eleven new sections based on the approximation of
matrix functions, deflating the solution space and improving the
accuracy of approximate solutions, iterative solution of initial value
problems of systems of ordinary differential equations, and the method
of trial functions for boundary value problems. The topics of the two
new chapters are integral equations and mathematical optimization. The
book provides alternative solutions to software tools amenable to hand
computations to validate the results obtained by "black box" solvers. It
also offers an insight into the mathematics behind many CAD, CAE tools
of the industry. The book aims to provide a working knowledge of the
various approximation techniques for engineering practice.

"What Every Engineer Should Know about Computational Techniques of Finite Element Analysis, Second Edition"
- Provides a practical guide to implementing FEA quickly and using it
- Offers a step-by-step guide to
modeling, reducing, and computing a physical problem or process
- Discusses modeling of physical phenomena,
constraint and boundary condition processing, singularity detection of
finite element models, matrix factorization and linear system solution,
static condensation, spectral and dynamic reduction, and frequency and
transient response analysis

analysis (FEA) has become the dominant tool of analysis in many
industrial fields of engineering, particularly in mechanical and
aerospace engineering. This process requires significant computational
work divided into several distinct phases. What Every Engineer Should
Know About Computational Techniques of Finite Element Analysis offers a
concise, self-contained treatment of FEA and all of the tools needed for
efficient use and practical implementation.
This book provides
you with a walk-through of the process from the physical model to the
computed solution. Based on the author's thirty years of practical
experience in finite element analysis in the shipbuilding, aerospace,
and automobile industries, it describes the transformation of the
physical problem into a mathematical model, reduction of the model to a
more efficient, numerically solvable form, and the solution of the
problem using specific computational techniques. The author discusses
time and frequency domain solutions as used in practice, as well as the
representation of the computed results.
What Every Engineer
Should Know About Computational Techniques of Finite Element Analysis
serves as a to-the-point guide to using or implementing FEA for both
beginners and everyday users who must apply the finite element method to
your daily work. The techniques can be easily executed in most available
FEA software packages.
