Mechanical engineering principles. 3rd edn. (Print copy) by A student-friendly introduction to core engineering topics This book introduces mechanical principles and technology through examples and applications, enabling students to develop a sound understanding of both engineering principles and their use in practice. These theoretical concepts are supported by 400 fully worked problems, 700 further problems with answers, and 300 multiple-choice questions, all of which add up to give the reader a firm grounding on each topic. The new edition is up to date with the latest BTEC National specifications and can also be used on undergraduate courses in mechanical, civil, structural, aeronautical and marine engineering, together with naval architecture. A further chapter has been added on revisionary mathematics, since progress in engineering studies is not possible without some basic mathematics knowledge. Further worked problems have also been added throughout the text. New chapter on revisionary mathematics Student-friendly approach with numerous worked problems, multiple-choice and short-answer questions, exercises, revision tests and nearly 400 diagrams Supported with free online material for students and lecturers Readers will also be able to access the free companion website at: www.routledge.com/cw/bird where they will find videos of practical demonstrations by Carl Ross. Full worked solutions of all 700 of the further problems will be available for both lecturers and students for the first time.

Dynamics in engineering practice, 11th edn. (Print copy) by Observing that most books on engineering dynamics left students lacking and failing to grasp the general nature of dynamics in engineering practice, the authors of Dynamics in Engineering Practice, Eleventh Edition focused their efforts on remedying the problem. This text shows readers how to develop and analyze models to predict motion. While establishing dynamics as an evolution of continuous motion, it offers a brief history of dynamics, discusses the SI and US customary unit systems, and combines topics that are typically covered in an introductory and intermediate, or possibly even an advanced dynamics course. It also contains plenty of computer example problems and enough tools to enable readers to fully grasp the subject. A free support book with worked computer examples using MATLAB#65533; is available upon request. New in the Eleventh Edition: A large number of problems have been added; specifically, 59 new problems have been included in the original problem sets provided in chapters two through five. Chapter six has been added and covers the application of Lagrange's equations for deriving equations of motion. The new and improved chapters in this text: Address the fundamental requirements of dynamics, including units, force, and mass, and provides a brief history of the development of dynamics Explore the kinematics of a particle, including displacement, velocity, and acceleration in one and two dimensions Cover planar kinetics of rigid bodies, starting with inertia properties and including the mass moment of inertia, the radius of gyration, and the parallel-axis formula Explain how to develop equations of motion for dynamics using Lagrange's equations Dynamics in Engineering Practice, Eleventh Editionshows readers how to develop general kinematic equations and EOMs, analyze systems, and set up and solve equations, using a revolutionary approach to modeling and analysis along with current computer techniques.

Mechanics of engineering materials. (Print copy) by Mechanics of Engineering Materials is well-established as the definitive textbook on the mechanics and strength of materials for students of engineering principles throughout their degree course. Assuming little or no prior knowledge, the theory of the subject is developed from first principles and all topics of stress and strain analysis are covered right up to final year level. Mechanical properties such as tensile behaviour, fatigue, creep, fracture and impact are discussed and more advanced material is also included, particularly on finite element analysis, fracture mechanics and composite materials. This second edition has been brought fully up-to-date in line with today's courses. Incorporating new, two-colour illustrations throughout, the book reinforces student comprehension of the theory through numerous new worked examples and end-of-chapter problems involving real engineering situations. An important new feature of this edition is the use and illustration of computer spreadsheets throughout as a powerful problem-solving tool. Mechanics of Engineering Materials is an indispensible course text for undergraduate students of mechanical engineering, engineering science and civil engineering. It will also be a valuable reference for those studying BTEC and GNVQ courses.

Applied Mechanics. 3rd edn (Print copy) by In general, sections of the text and the lists of problems have been revised and the drawings improved throughout. In particular, the chapter on Aircraft and Rockets has been re-written in parts and expanded; this chapter is intended to be an introduction to the topics of jet and propeller-driven aircraft, helicopters and rockets, having the advantage of bringing together in the exercises the subjects of statics and dynamics as well as thermo- and gas-dynamics with fluid flow. Some descriptive work on propulsion systems and aerodynamics has been included to support the elementary basic, mechanics. The treatment of the topic Gravitation and Satellites has also been marginally increased. To contain the size of the book the chapters on Experimental Methods and Fluid in Motion have been slightly curtailed.
