Mechanical Engineering Handbook By Frank Kreith :: Book Description: During the past 30 years, the mechanical engineering discipline has undergone many changes. Changes have been possible by the development of computer technology, competition in industry, improvements in the flow of information, real time monitoring, increased energy efficiency robotics, automatic control. These developments have put more stress on mechanical engineering education, making it increasingly difficult to cover all the topics that a mechanical engineer will need in his/her career. this eBook fulfills needs as a source of information for the professional mechanical engineering students and mechanical engineer into the 2000 century.
During the past 20 years, the field of mechanical engineering has undergone enormous changes. These changes have been driven by many factors, including:
the development of computer technology
worldwide competition in industry
improvements in the flow of information
real time monitoring
increased energy efficiency
increased sensitivity to environmental impacts of human activities
advances in design and manufacturing methods
These developments have put more stress on mechanical engineering education, making it increasingly difficult to cover all the topics that a professional engineer will need in his or her career. As a result of these developments, there has been a growing need for a handbook that can serve the professional community by providing relevant background and current information in the field of mechanical engineering. The CRC Handbook of Mechanical Engineering serves the needs of the professional engineer as a resource of information into the next century.
Mechanical Engineering Handbook By Frank Kreith
Since the first edition of this comprehensive handbook was published ten years ago, many changes have taken place in engineering and related technologies. Now, this best-selling reference has been updated for the 21st century, providing complete coverage of classic engineering issues as well as groundbreaking new subject areas.
The second edition of The CRC Handbook of Mechanical Engineering covers every important aspect of the subject in a single volume. It continues the mission of the first edition in providing the practicing engineer in industry, government, and academia with relevant background and up-to-date information on the most important topics of modern mechanical engineering.
Coverage of traditional topics has been updated, including sections on thermodynamics, solid and fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, materials, controls, energy conversion, manufacturing and design, robotics, environmental engineering, economics and project management, patent law, and transportation. Updates to these sections include new references and information on computer technology related to the topics. This edition also includes coverage of new topics such as nanotechnology, MEMS, electronic packaging, global climate change, electric and hybrid vehicles, and bioengineering
To be successful in the international marketplace, corporations must have access to the latest developments and most recent experimental data. Traditional handbooks of heat transfer stress fundamental principles, analytical approaches to thermal problems, and elegant solutions to classical problems. The CRC Handbook of Thermal Engineering is not a traditional handbook. Engineers in industry need up-to-date, accessible information on the applications of heat and mass transfer-The CRC Handbook of Thermal Engineering provides it.Peer reviewed articles-selected on the basis of their current relevance to the development of new products-provide in-depth treatment of applications in diverse fields, such as:·Bioengineering·Desalination·Electronics·Energy conservation·Food processing·Measurement techniques in fluid flow and heat transferYou’ll find complete, up-to-date information on the latest development in the field, including:·Recent advances in thermal sciences·Microthermal design·Compact heat exchangers·Thermal optimization·Exergy analysisA unique, one-stop resource for all your thermal engineering questionsFrom the basics of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat and mass transfer, to comprehensive treatment of current applications, the latest computational tools, to data tables for the properties of gases, liquids, and solids, The CRC Handbook of Thermal Engineering has it all!
