Mechanical Engineering Principles 3rd Edition aims to broaden the reader’s knowledge of the basic principles that are fundamental to mechanical engineering design and the operation of mechanical systems. Modern engineering systems and products still relyupon static and dynamic principles to make them work. Even systems that appear to be entirely electronic have a physical presence governed by the principles of statics. In this third edition of Mechanical Engineering Principles, a  further chapter has been added on revisionary mathematics; it is not possible to progress in engineering studies without a reasonable knowledge of mathematics, a fact that soon becomes obvious to both students and teachers alike. It is therefore hoped that this further chapter on mathematics revision will be helpful and make engineering studies more comprehensible. Minor modifications, some further worked problems, a glossary of terms and famous engineers’ biographies
have all been added to the text. More has been added to the website for this new edition – such as full solutions being made available to both stu dents and staff, and much more besides – see page x. For clarity, the text is divided into four sections, these being:
Part 1 Revision of Mathematics
Part 2 Statics and Strength of Materials
Part 3 Dynamics
Part 4 Heat Transfer and Fluid Mechanics
Although pre-requisites for the modules covered in this book include Foundation Certificate/diploma, or similar, in Mathematics and Science, each topic considered in the text is presented in a way that assumes that the reader has little previous knowledge of that topic. Mechanical Engineering Principles 3rd Edition contains over 400 worked problems, followed by over 700 further problems (all with answers). The further problems are contained within some 150 Exercises; each Exercise follows on directly from the relevant section of work, every few pages. In addition, the text contains 298 multiple-choice questions (all with answers), and 260 short answer questions, the answers for which can be determined from the preceding material in that particular chapter. Where at all possible, the problems mirror practical situations found in mechanical engineering. 387 line diagrams enhance the understanding of the theory.
