THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE COVERAGE OF THE MECHANICAL ENGINEERING DISCIPLINE, IN FOUR VOLUMES

As the discipline of mechanical engineering continues to expand, so does the ever–trusted Mechanical Engineers′ Handbook. In a 4–volume format, this Fourth Edition provides the most current off–the–shelf reference to every topic in the field. Spanning specializations from aerospace to petroleum and beyond, the Handbook helps you work efficiently across industries and job functions.

Unlike other handbooks, the Mechanical Engineers′ Handbook goes beyond lists of data and formulas, providing examples and discussion of each topic to help you quickly understand how to get the outcomes you want. Volume 1, Materials and Engineering Mechanics is your complete guide to what makes materials suitable for particular uses, as well as the methodologies used to ensure success.

Inside this volume:

  • 10 revised chapters on materials, including metals, plastics, composites, ceramics, smart materials, electronic materials, and packaging
  • 6 entirely new chapters on engineering mechanics, covering measurement of force, strain, viscosity, tribology, and acoustics
  • Contributions from 35 industry–leading experts
  • Exhaustive charts and tables illustrate properties and best uses of materials

Suitable as a stand–alone reference or as a part of a complete 4–volume set, this book is an excellent addition to any professional library. This Handbook is the best guide to the dynamic, and multidimensional discipline of mechanical engineering.
