The second edition of the Engineering Handbook provides a ready reference for the practicing engineer in industry, government, and academia. The book is divided into 30 sections that encompass the field of engineering and provides the most up-to-date information in the classical fields: mechanical, electrical, civil, chemical, biomedical engineering (new), nanotechnology/MEMS (new), environmental, industrial, and aerospace engineering as well as the underlying fields of mathematics and materials. The Handbook satisfies the information needs of all professional engineers, whether they work in industry, education, or government.

"...contains all the text & figures in the print version... includes definitions and explanations of nearly 2,000 terms, approximately 3,000 equations and formulas, and over 1,700 figures...with extensive cross-referencing and indexing."

Editorial Reviews

Intended as a resource for practicing engineers or for students, this CD-ROM provides access to contributions covering statics, force systems resultants and equilibrium, centroids and distributed loads, moments of inertia, mechanics of materials reactions, bending stresses in beams, and dynamics of vibration, of particles, and of rigid bodies, among other topics. As expected, the CD-ROM features boolean and proximity searching, support for bookmarking and annotation, inter-text links, zoom features for viewing figures and graphs, and cut and paste capability.
