Overview

This text offers a broad-based introduction to engineering systems that incorporates material from mechanical and electrical engineering and hydraulic and thermal systems. The overall theme is its unified treatment of disparate physical systems, emphasizing similarities in both the modeling and behavior of such lumped-element systems." "Every chapter includes a wide variety of examples, as well as exercise problems, drawn from real-world engineering systems." "Aimed at second- and third-year undergraduates, this introductory text offers a unified entry to the multidisciplinary world of engineering.
