Overview

Eshbach’s Handbook of Engineering Fundamentals, the standard engineering reference work for over fifty years, has been updated and revised in this Fourth Edition. The coverage of the revised Handbook addresses all the fundamental subdivisions of engineering, including electronics, controls, fluids, with a special emphasis on the various elements of mechanical and aerospace engineering. The Fourth Edition includes entirely new chapters on materials, acoustics, and computers. In addition, all chapters have been rewritten and revised to reflect changes since the previous edition of the Handbook was published. The coverage is organized around these main subjects: mathematical and physical units, standards, and tables; mathematics; mechanics of rigid bodies; mechanics of deformable bodies; mechanics of incompressible fluids; aeronautics; astronautics; automatic control; computer science; engineering thermodynamics and heat transfer; electromagnetic and circuits; electronics; radiation, light, and acoustics; chemistry; engineering economics; and properties of materials. As in the previous editions, the coverage is given in capsule form to give the reader a basic understanding of the topic. References to more specific literature are also provided with each entry.
