Print books have some advantages over e-books, including that they have the feel of a book that many readers love. You can hold it, turn the pages, and feel the paper. Also, for those who like to read as they fall asleep, paper books make a better choice since there’s no eye strain that comes with an electronic device or e-reader.

Summary : Computer Aided Engineering Drawing

A new discipline is said to attain maturity when the subject matter takes the shape of a textbook. Several textbooks later, the discipline tends to acquire a firm place in the curriculum for teaching and learning. However, it draws its core strength from several acknowledged and diverse areas such as computer graphics, differential geometry, Boolean algebra, computational geometry, topological spaces, numerical analysis, mechanics of solids, engineering design and a few others. CAED also needs to show its strong linkages with Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM). Various textbooks have appeared with different biases, like geometric modeling, computer graphics, and CAD/CAM over the last decade.

In a new discipline, it is also a major contribution creating example problems and their solutions whereby these exercises can be worked out in a reasonable time by students and simultaneously encouraging them to tackle more challenging problems. Some well tried out projects are also listed which may enthuse both teachers and students to develop new projects. The writing style of the book is clear and thorough and as the student progresses through the text, a great satisfaction can be achieved by creating a software library of curve, surface, and solid modeling

The development of computer aided engineering design has gained momentum over the last three decades. Computer graphics, geometric modeling of curves, surfaces and solids, finite element method, optimization, computational fluid flow and heat transfer—all have now taken roots into the academic curricula as individual disciplines. Several professional softwares are now available for the design of surfaces and solids. These are very user-friendly and do not require a user to possess the intricate details of the mathematical basis that goes behind.

the convex hull of the data points specified. The associated variation diminishing property suggests that the curve’s shape is no more complex than the polyline of the control points itself. In other words, a control polyline primitively approximates the shape of the curve. For Bézier segments, barycentricity is global in that altering any data point results in overall shape change of the segment. For B-spline curves, however, weights are locally barycentric allowing shape change only within some local region. Expressions for weights, that is, Bernstein polynomials for Bézier segments and B-spline basis functions for B-spline curves are derived and discussed in detail in this book and many examples are presented to illustrate curve design.

Reverse engineering alludes to the process of creating CAD models from existing real life components or their prototypes.Applications are prolific;some being the generation of customized fit to human surfaces, designing prostheses, and reconstruction of archaeological collections and artifacts. Surface patches are
then locally modeled over a subset of the point cloud to interpolate or best approximate the data. Reverse engineering is an important emerging application in Computer Aided Design, and various methods for surface patch fitting, depending on the scanning procedure used, are briefed in this book.


The practitioners, i.e., those developing professional software would require much deeper understanding of the design principles, mathematical foundations and computer graphics to render a robust Graphical User Interface to the software. This book would help them acquire adequate background knowledge in design principles and mathematical foundations. Those using the software may not require a deeper understanding of the mathematical principles. However, design aspects and essential properties of curve, surface and solid modeling would be needed to create the design and interpret the results.
