The digital only set includes the books:
THE ELEVATOR: FROM BASICS TO CALCULUS – Motor Control; Ropes and Traction; Traffic AnalysisThis first book provides a quick introductory review on elevator systems to help readers who have no background knowledge in elevator technology get into the world of elevators. It then leads to its three major parts: "Motor Drive and Control," "Ropes and Traction" and “Traffic Analysis.”
There are four chapters in each, which gradually increase in depth. This material is mainly for technical undergraduate/postgraduate students and professionals, as they are mainly mathematical. Having said that, the mathematics are only up to the level of simple calculus, involving differential equations of the second order. The rest is mainly high-school algebra and geometry. Detailed explanations help readers follow the derivation of all formulae.
The Solutions to The Elevator: From Basics to Calculus
This book provides possible solutions to the questions from The Elevator: From Basics to Calculus from the author’s point of view. Some questions may have multiple correct answers. Readers are not confined to follow the solutions given in this book, which could be considered a reference only. In this book, whenever a chapter is referred to, the original book, The Elevator: From Basics to Calculus, is being referenced. That means readers should go back to the original book for reference.
Each question and solution is uniquely referenced by a number in the format of X.Y.ZZ where X is the part number; Y is the chapter number and ZZ is the question number in a particular chapter in the original book. The author humbly welcomes suggestions and comments on the solutions, as very often solutions other than the recommended ones in this book are even more appropriate, or there are even mistakes in some solutions.
For quick reference, very often, contents in the original book are copied here so readers can easily understand the whole derivation without going back and forth between the two books.
