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.
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
