What is mechanical engineering? What a mechanical engineering does? How did the mechanical engineering change through ages? What is the future of mechanical engineering? This book answers these questions in a lucid manner. It also provides a brief chronological history of landmark events and answers questions such as: When was steam engine invented? Where was first CNC machine developed? When did the era of additive manufacturing start? When did the marriage of mechanical and electronics give birth to discipline of mechatronics? This book informs and create interest on mechanical engineering in the general public and particular in students. It also helps to sensitize the engineering fraternity about the historical aspects of engineering. At the same time, it provides a common sense knowledge of mechanical engineering in a handy manner.
The Engineering Communication Manual addresses authentic writing issues and communication tasks faced by engineers, such as collaborative writing, design of data graphics, and poster presentations. The text helps students to generate effective technical arguments and to think critically abouthow they present content.
Now in dynamic full color, SI ENGINEERING FUNDAMENTALS: AN INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING, 5e helps readers develop the strong problem-solving skills and solid foundation in fundamental principles they will need to become analytical, detail-oriented, and creative engineers. The book opens with an overview of what engineers do, an inside glimpse of the various areas of specialization, and a straightforward look at what it takes to succeed. The book then covers the basic physical concepts and laws that you'll encounter on the job. Professional Profiles throughout the text highlight the work of practicing engineers from around the globe, tying in the fundamental principles and applying them to professional engineering. Using a flexible modular format, the book demonstrates how engineers apply physical and chemical laws and principles, as well as mathematics, to design, test, and supervise the production of millions of parts, products, and services that people use every day.
Engineering Fundamentals & Problem Solving presents a complete introduction into the engineering field and remains the most comprehensive textbook for an introductory engineering course. This text will help students develop the skills needed to solve open-ended problems in SI and customary units while presenting solutions in a logical manner. Students are introduced to subject areas, common to engineering disciplines, that require the application of fundamental engineering concepts. Engineering Fundamentals & Problem Solving provides students a realistic opportunity to learn to apply engineering principles to the solution of engineering problems. Furthermore, the author's approach keeps students on task toward an engineering career by showing how the materials apply to the student's school, life, and career. McGraw-Hill Education's Connect, is also available as an optional, add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student's work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a "multi-step solution" which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty.
Part of the bestselling Making Sense series, this fifth edition of Making Sense in Engineering and the Technical Sciences is an indispensable research and writing guide for students in any area of the discipline - from electrical and mechanical engineering to systems design and computerscience.
