Are you fascinated by the intricate inner workings of machines and systems? If so, you are in the right place. The field of mechanical engineering encompasses a wide range of disciplines, including the design, analysis, and manufacture of mechanical systems and components. From manufacturing automobiles and aircraft to developing energy systems and optimizing manufacturing processes, mechanical engineers play a key role in shaping today’s world.
About the Book
Mechanical Engineering Principles 2nd Edition contains over 325 practice problems and over 550 additional problems, all with answers. Each question follows directly from the relevant section every few pages.
Mechanical Engineering Principles 2nd Edition is intended to expand the reader’s knowledge of the fundamental principles underlying mechanical engineering design and the operation of mechanical systems.
Modern engineering systems and products rely on static and dynamic principles to operate. Even systems that appear to be completely electronic have a physical existence governed by the principles of statics.
This second edition of Mechanical Engineering Principles includes an additional chapter reviewing mathematics. It is impossible to pursue the study of engineering without a reasonable knowledge of mathematics, and this fact is immediately apparent to students and teachers alike.
Therefore, it is hoped that this review chapter on basic mathematics will be helpful and make the study of engineering more understandable. In addition, some corrections and further exercises have been added throughout the text.
