Applied Descriptive Geometry 2nd Edition

Kathryn Holliday-Darr

  • Published
  • Previous Editions 1986
  • 416 Pages

Overview

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.
