5-0 out of 5 stars Good quality book
The book came in quality condition and was exactly as described. Overall, this Orbital Mechanics Book is good for the course I was in.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK general text... get the second edition
Bought this book right before the second edition came out.Some of my classmates bought the second edition, so the class has a mixture of the two books.The professor is constantly pointing out errors and typos in this edition.There is supposedly an errata available, I have not yet found it.Aside from the practice problem and equation numbering, (and correcting the errors) the two editions are essentially the same.

As a text, the explanations of phenomena and derivations of equations are well laid out and can be followed without too much difficulty if you have a good grounding in vector algebra.An understanding of calculus and ordinary differential equations also aids understanding.The MATLAB code found in the appendices is good and can be used as-is or as a starting point for writing your own.If you can get a .pdf of that appendix, though, it makes cut-and-paste-and-run a whole lot easier.

My only other quibble is that the tables with planetary constants (mass, radius, orbit, mu, etc.) are split into two tables and are buried in an appendix, rather than in one table inside the cover.I've tabbed that page, but it would make more sense to make those much-referenced figures more accessible.

4-0 out of 5 stars Affordable & Decent Quality
I also had Aircraft Structural Analysis textbook written by the same author, which was never updated, unreadable & full of errors. I'd say that Mr. Curtis should stay away from Structure because this textbook is a totally different reading experience compared to the previous book I mentioned before.

First, it is affordable, it only costs me $45 (I bought mine from third party vendor listed on Amazon Marketplace); second, it is readable & actually has examples that the readers could understand. The only thing that annoyed me a bit is the fact that the a lot of the important formulas are not organized or boxed, so readers have to do it manually with pencil. A few chapters, especially chapter 10 needs to contain more example or expanded further in order to enlighten the audience about the material. Going to lecture might improve the readers' overall experience, so don't use the book as self study because the vast amount of mathematical derivations could be discouraging.

5-0 out of 5 stars very important lessons
Blanchard is a master name on System Engineering and Life Cycle Costs. This books explains many details of such complex sciences helping us keep focused on what really matters. The explanations are easy to understand even for beginners.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great introduction
I read this book while taking a masters course in system engineering.Over all, the book was clear and written in a format that allowed for self study.This was very helpful for me since my course was primarily online.The material was slightly redundant.The central thesis of the book was the fact that a system engineer needs to conduct the proper upfront planning as well as establish clear processes to ensure successful system development/delivery.The goal of System Engineering is to provide a system that meets the customer's need/requirements.This book introduces how this can be accomplished through a repeated process.
The redundant nature of the text requires a lot of cross reference (page flipping) between chapters in order to match the text description with the figure discussed.The book is more managerial then technical; most laymen will be able to read it without assistance from an instructor.Expanded explanations of reliability engineering as well as ID/prioritization of Technical Performance Measures would have been helpful.This textbook provided a good introduction to the SE process.I highly recommend this text book if you work as a System Engineer or Project Engineer for the Navy or Marines.This book references and will support their standard acquisition process.I give this book 4 of 5 stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introduction to Systems Engineering
This book (or something similar) really should be required for anyone graduating with an engineering degree who intends to work in industry.

Systems engineering is essentially the function that oversees any design effort to ensure that the resulting design does what it's supposed to. As such requirements are the bread and butter of systems engineering. The most visible job of the system engineer then is to turn the customer's desires into functional requirements, and then turn those requirements into something that can be designed to based on the system architecture the designers / system engineers prefer.

For example, consider if you have a city with a river through it and the local government wants to develop a system to carry cars across the river. The system engineer would first turn that desire into functional requirements. These would include requirements like: No. of cars per hour that can transit, can't interfere with riverborne ship traffic, growth in traffic that can be absorbed etc. From this you have something that you can verify design concepts against to see if they satisfy the customer desires, but actually can't pull out the ruler and calculators just yet. Systems engineers / designers would then consider options like a suspension bridge, a ferry system, or a tunnel beneath the river. Each of these system options would have their own architectures and the functional requirements would have to be translated into different design requirements for each. The bridge would have to be so high to allow ship traffic and have so many lanes and bear so much live weight. The ferry system would need so many ferries of such and such a carrying capacity. The tunnel would have to have so many lanes, would require such and such a ventilation capacity, etc. The systems engineer would be involved in determining which of these architectures would best suit customer needs, and then turn the functional requirements into the design to requirements so design work can begin in earnest.

Of course as design work continues and large components are broken down into smaller and smaller design components the systems engineer continues to guide the choice of how to configure the lower tier of design components, and to allocate design to requirements for them. If the system engineer has done their job right when all the design components are integrated into each other the resulting system really does what it was intended to do and meets the functional requirements.

This book tells you in a very clear, completely comprehensive, and extremely well laid out manner how to do this. It also tells you why you should do this, and how it is beneficial. The writing is straightforward, always to the point, and easily understood. The topic is pertinent and can help you understand how systems are actually engineered in the real world, a very rare and very appreciated breath of fresh air in engineering textbooks.

The author also covers all the aspects of systems engineering planning, including scheduling, budgeting, contracting, and system verification / validation, etc. Systems engineering is largely a management function so this information is interesting and necessary for the subject.

This book will be extremely helpful for engineers of any stripe who want to put their work into context, systems engineers for how to do what their supposed to do, and for contractors and government purchasers to implement processes to guarantee that they get a system that does what they want. (Provided what they want is feasible of course!)

Certainly recommended and a book that I use frequently for reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars Key to successful integration projects & CMMI
This book is aimed at the system engineer who is involved in product design and engineering or involved in government contracting and must produce system engineering management plans (SEMPs). It is also applicable to organizations who have or are planning to use the capability maturity model (CMM) to improve their effectiveness. For the intended audience this book is both comprehensive and complete.There are eight chapters, each followed by case studies, questions and problems, and six appendices.

It starts with a foundation of the basics, such as definitions, system engineering life cycle, analysis and concurrent engineering.It then builds upon this foundation by addressing all of the elements of a well-managed system engineering program:integrated product and process development, TQM, configuration management, support and logistics.Each element is discussed in detail and placed into the context of a total system engineering environment.

The chapter on system design requirements is particularly complete and covers every facet of this discipline, including reliability, maintainability, safety, software, etc.There is a lot of good material here, which is reinforced by the next chapter that covers design tools and methods.The design process is concluded by a chapter on design review and evaluation, which is a foundation of good quality practices as well as a well-written SEMP.

The real heart of the book starts in chapter 6, which covers SE program planing.It covers program requirements, the SEMP itself and provides a statement of work. It then provides a complete work breakdown structure for implementing system engineering functions and tasks. This chapter provides a risk management plan that is well thought out and serves as an excellent template. It also addresses the CMM for systems engineering. Much of this material has been superseded by the Software Engineering Institute's CMMI that now covers system engineering, software engineering and integrated product and process development.This is not a problem because the book's coverage of the CMM-SE is consistent with the material in the CMMI.

The final two chapters, addressing system engineering organization and supplier/sub contractor management are to the point and contains a lot of valuable information.

Had the author provided this book in soft copy on an accompanying diskette or CD ROM it would be a best seller on the Beltway because of the time it would save in developing a company-wide system engineering procedure manual.

Consulting companies and IT departments would also greatly benefit from this book because of the structured approach it provides for planning and managing system integration.Unlike their cousins in the government contracting and CMM domains, they generally approach system engineering and integration in a loose fashion that too often results in cost and schedule overruns, or project cancellation.By following the approach outlined in this book consulting companies and IT departments would find that technical, cost and schedule risks would be identified early and controlled, and that the design, integration and implementation of complex systems would enjoy a higher rate of success. This is especially true when multiple vendors are involved in an integration project - the material in chapters 1 (integrated process teams) and 8 (subcontractor management) provides a foundation for managing cross-functional teams. Therefore, I strongly recommend this book for engagement and project managers, and program management offices run by consulting companies and/or IT departments. ... Read more

Product Description

Some might think that the 27 thousand tons of material launched by earthlings into outer space is nothing more than floating piles of debris. However, when looking at these artifacts through the eyes of historians and anthropologists, instead of celestial pollution, they are seen as links to human history and heritage.

Space: The New Frontier for Archeologists

Handbook of Space Engineering, Archaeology and Heritage, published this month by CRC Press Taylor and Francis Group, brings together 43 anthropologists, historians, physicists, and engineers, a scientific team as culturally diverse as the crew of any science fiction cruiser. They offer a range of novel historical and technological perspectives on humankind’s experience in space. This ambitious work presents an informative, thought-provoking, and educational text that discusses the evolution of space engineering, spacecraft reliability and forensics, field techniques, and mission planning, as well as space programs for the future. The book is edited by a pair of scientists from different sides of the campus: Ann Garrison Darrin, aerospace engineer and NASA veteran and Beth Laura O’Leary, anthropologist and member of the World Archaeological Congress Space Heritage Task Force.

The handbook delves into the evolution of space archaeology and heritage, including the emerging fields of Archaeoastronomy, Ethnoastronomy, and Cultural Astronomy. It also covers space basics and the history of the space age from Sputnik to modern day satellites. It discusses the cultural landscape of space, including orbital artifacts in space, as well as objects left on planetary surfaces and includes a look at the culture of Apollo as a catalog of manned exploration of the moon. It also considers the application of forensic investigation to the solving of cold case mysteries including failed Mars mission landing sites and lost spacecraft, and even investigates the archaeology of the putative Roswell UFO crash site and appraises material culture in science fiction.

4-0 out of 5 stars How Will We Preserve the Heritage of the Space Age?
Want to know about the archeology of spaceflight? How about infrastructure? What about the human-made artifacts on the Moon? The "Handbook of Space Engineering, Archaeology, and Heritage" is for you. Editors Ann Garrison Darrin and Beth Laura O'Leary have assembled a diverse set of nearly 50 chapters written by a collection of engineers, anthropologists, archaeologists, conservators, cultural resource professionals, historians, and attorneys.

Divided into ten sections, it trips through cultural astronomy, the history of the space age, space hardware and its disposition, the archaeological heritage of Apollo, the international components of the space age, and the like.

While the book offers a useful introduction to the issues associated with preserving knowledge about spaceflight and the systems that support it, it is a massive, rambling, and sometimes contradictory work. This is the result largely of the diverse authorship. Repetition abounds, and sometimes contradictions do as well. There are also gaps in coverage, for essentially the same reason. ... Read more

Product Description
Statistics is the science of the collection, organization, analysis, and interpretation of numerical data, especially the analysis of population characteristics by inference from sampling.In engineering work this includes such different tasks as predicting the reliability of space launch vehicles and subsystems, lifetime analysis of spacecraft system components, failure analysis, and tolerance limits. A common engineering definition of statistics states that statistics is the science of guiding decisions in the face of uncertainties.An earlier definition was statistics is the science of making decisions in the face of uncertainties, but the verb making has been moderated to guiding. Statistical procedures can vary from the drawing and assessment of a few simple graphs to carrying out very complex mathematical analysis with the use of computers; in any application, however, there is the essential underlying influence of "chance."Whether some natural phenomenon is being observed or a scientific experiment is being carried out, the analysis will be statistical if it is impossible to predict the data exactly with certainty. The theory of probability had, strangely enough, a clearly recognizable and rather definitive start.It occurred in France in 1654.The French nobleman Chevalier de Mere had reasoned falsely that the probability of getting at least one six with 4 throws of a single die was the same as the probability of getting at least one "double six" in 24 throws of a pair of dice.This misconception gave rise to a correspondence between the French mathematician Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) and his mathematician friend Pierre Fermat (1601-1665) to whom he wrote: "Monsieur le Chevalier de Mere is very bright, but he is not a mathematician, and that, as you know, is a very serious defect."CONTENTS: Introduction - Preliminary Remarks - Statistical Potpourri - Measurement Scales - Probability and Set TheoryProbabilityDefinitions of Probability - Combinatorial Analysis (Counting Techniques) - Basic Laws of Probability - Probability Distributions - Distribution (Population) Parameters - Chebyshev's Theorem - Special Discrete Probability Functions - Special Continuous Distributions - Joint Distribution Functions - Mathematical Expectation - Functions of Random Variables - Central Limit Theorem (Normal Convergence Theorem) - Simulation (Monte Carlo Methods)StatisticEstimation Theory - Point Estimation - Sampling Distributions - Interval Estimation - Tolerance Limits - Hypothesis/Significance Testing - Curve Fitting, Regression, and Correlation - Goodness-of-Fit Tests - Quality Control - Reliability and Life Testing - Error Propagation LawBibliography ...

Product Description
Few technological advances have affected the lives and dreams of individuals and the operations of companies and governments as much as the continuing development of flight. From space exploration to package transport, from military transport to passenger helicopter use, from passenger jumbo jets to tilt-rotor commuter planes, the future of flying is still rapidly developing. The essays in this volume survey the state of progress along several fronts of this constantly evolving frontier. Five eminent authorities assess prospects for the future of rotary-wing aircraft, large passenger aircraft, commercial aviation, manned spaceflight, and defense aerospace in the post-Cold War era. ...
