HANDBOOK OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING TERMS
Size: 2 MB
This handbook has been prepared to meet the need of an up-to-date
authoritative, yet concise compilation of the salient terms associated with
the broad field of Mechanical Engineering. This handbook is intended to
serve a twofold purpose.
First, it concentrates on and presents a brief description of the most important
currently used terms. It will give the reader a true and full understanding and
background of the meaning of the words that sooner or later will be needed
in any occupation or trade.
One point has been kept in mind, during the preparation of this handbook,
that will, cause it to differ from other works of its class. This is accomplished
by dividing the book into twenty six parts. These parts cover most of the
spectrum of Mechanical Engineering. In each part, the various terms have
been listed alphabetically.
Second, the book is available as in the general ready reference for the students
and engineers of various courses and fields pertaining to Mechanical
Engineering. It provides, in one convenient source, the brief explanations
scattered in various text books, reference books handbooks and journals.
Every effort has been made to include terms in current use. All definitions
have been expressed as clearly and simply as possible. Care has been exercised
to avoid errors.
Suggestions and comments are heartily welcomed from the readers which
may help to improve further editions of this handbook.
