OVERVIEW

Completely revised to reflect the changing policies of the Business and Technician Education Council (BTEC) for courses leading to Higher National qualifications in mechanical engineering, Mechanical Technology, Third Edition provides full coverage of stress analysis, dynamics, thermodynamics, and fluid mechanics without sacrificing depth of treatment. It is unmatched by any other book in its class, and is a necessary reference for any engineer’s library.  

FEATURES

Unusually broad coverage for a one-volume reference. Underlying theory is presented concisely with illustrative worked examples and many tutorial examples. Contains an expanded and more developed section on heat transfer and a completely new section on hydraulic machines. Designed to cover a wide range of courses offered by colleges and universities.
