Summary

Excellent for engineering and technology students, this text goes far beyond instruction in standard orthographic projection to clarify all the tools of descriptive geometry--and how they apply to individual fields. The text places special emphasis on applications in all the various engineering disciplines: mechanical, plastics, industrial, piping, aerospace, marine, civil, and structural. As a result, students quickly grasp the value of descriptive geometry as they apply the tools and techniques to practical problems. By organizing information around the field's central concept--line of sight--the presentation facilitates understanding in a way unmatched by any other text. The worktext format provides students with all the resources they need--text and workbook--under one cover.

Features:

  • Step-by-step instructions and graphics make for easy, intuitive grasp of geometric principles
       
  • Focus on Visualization clarifies and simplifies the study of descriptive geometry
       
  • Practice problems apply math concepts to real-world applications
       
  • Wide-ranging examples clarify the use of descriptive geometry in a broad range of engineering fields, from mechanical to plastics
       
  • Helpful Hints sections provide in-depth supplemental information, aiding learning or review
