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 rely upon 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.
