This CD contains two multimedia packages that relate to Fundamentals of Manufacturing: Semiconductor Processing and Fiber Manufacture. These two manufacturing examples illustrate several transport phenomena fundamentals. The multimedia is designed to be self-contained teaching modules.

The textbooks for these modules reside on this CD in two forms. One set of textbooks (Web Books) is written in HTML and may be read using a web browser. The other set is in Adobe Acrobat Readable (PDF) format, which can be viewed with Adobe Acrobat Reader, downloadable from Adobe.

Getting Started

To begin, click on the Funmat icon. To open in the Adobe Acrobat format, click on Fundamentals of Manufacturing.


This CD is our first attempt at this sort of thing. As such, we would greatly appreciate your comments and suggestions. Our intent is to create many such (hopefully) easy to learn engineering self-teaching learning segments. If you are on a network, send comments to Raj Mutharasan.
