Book Description:

A student-friendly introduction to core engineering topicsThis book introduces mechanical principles and technology through examples and applications, enabling students to develop a sound understanding of both engineering principles and their use in practice. These theoretical concepts are supported by 400 fully worked problems, 700 further problems with answers, and 300 multiple-choice questions, all of which add up to give the reader a firm grounding on each topic.

The new edition is up to date with the latest BTEC National specifications and can also be used on undergraduate courses in mechanical, civil, structural, aeronautical and marine engineering, together with naval architecture. A further chapter has been added on revisionary mathematics, since progress in engineering studies is not possible without some basic mathematics knowledge. Further worked problems have also been added throughout the text.

• New chapter on revisionary mathematics
• Student-friendly approach with numerous worked problems, multiple-choice and short-answer questions, exercises, revision tests and nearly 400 diagrams
• Supported with free online material for students and lecturers

Readers will also be able to access the free companion website at: www.routledge.com/cw/bird where they will find videos of practical demonstrations by Carl Ross. Full worked solutions of all 700 of the further problems will be available for both lecturers and students for the first time.

## Preface to Mechanical Engineering Principles

Mechanical Engineering Principles 2nd Version goals to broaden the reader’s data of the fundamental ideas which might be basic to mechanical engineering design and the operation of mechanical techniques.

Fashionable engineering techniques and merchandise nonetheless depend upon static and dynamic ideas to make them work. Even techniques that seem like completely digital have a bodily presence ruled by the ideas of statics.

On this second version of Mechanical Engineering Principles, a chapter has been added on revisionary arithmetic; it’s not doable to progress in engineering research and not using a affordable data of arithmetic, a undeniable fact that quickly turns into apparent to each college students and lecturers alike.

It’s subsequently hoped that this chapter on primary arithmetic revision shall be useful and make the engineering research extra understandable.

Minor modifications and a few additional labored issues have additionally been added all through the textual content.

Free Web downloads of full options to the additional issues and a PowerPoint presentation of all of the illustrations contained within the textual content is accessible – see web page x.

Though pre-requisites for the modules coated on this e-book embody Basis Certificates/ diploma, or comparable, in Arithmetic and Science, every matter thought of within the textual content is introduced in a approach that assumes that the reader has little earlier data of that matter.

Mechanical Engineering Principles 2nd Version comprises over 325 labored issues, adopted by over 550 additional issues (all with solutions).

The additional issues are contained inside some 140 Workout routines; every Train follows on straight from the related part of labor, each few pages.

As well as, the textual content comprises 276 multiplechoice questions (all with solutions), and 260 quick reply questions, the solutions for which could be decided from the previous materials in that specific chapter.

The place in any respect doable, the issues mirror sensible conditions present in mechanical engineering. 371 line diagrams improve the understanding of the idea.

At common intervals all through the textual content are some 8 Revision Checks to examine understanding. For instance, Revision Take a look at 1 covers materials contained in Chapter 1, Take a look at 2 covers the fabric in Chapters 2 to 5, and so forth.

No solutions are given for the questions within the Revision Checks, however a Lecturer’s information has been produced giving full options and steered marking scheme.

The information is obtainable on-line free to lecturer’s/ teacher’s – see beneath. On the finish of the textual content, a listing of related formulae is included for simple reference.
