- Publisher's Summary
- The updated revision of the bestseller-in a more useful format! Mechanical Engineers' Handbook has a long tradition as a single resource of valuable information related to specialty areas in the diverse industries and job functions in which mechanical engineers work. This Third Edition, the most aggressive revision to date, goes beyond the straight data, formulas, and calculations provided in other handbooks and focuses on authoritative discussions, real-world examples, and insightful analyses while covering more topics than in previous editions. Book 1: Materials and Mechanical Design is divided into two parts that go hand-in-hand. The first part covers metals, plastics, composites, ceramics, and smart materials, providing expert advice on common uses of specific materials as well as what criteria qualify them as suitable for particular applications. Coverage in the second part of this book addresses practical techniques to solve real, everyday problems, including: Nondestructive testing Computer-Aided Design (CAD) TRIZ (the Russian acronym for Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) The Standard for the Exchange of Product Model Data (STEP) Virtual reality.
