Mechanical Engineers Handbook

    The mechanical engineering literature is extensive and has been so for a considerable period of time. Many textbooks, reference works, and manuals as well as a substantial number of journals exist. Numerous commercial publishers and professional societies, particularly in the United States and Europe, distribute these materials. The literature grows continuously, as applied mechanical engineering research finds new ways of designing, controlling, measuring, making, and maintaining things, as well as monitoring and evaluating technologies, infrastructures, and systems.

    Most professional-level mechanical engineering publications tend to be specialized, directed to the specific needs of particular groups of practitioners. Overall, however, the mechanical engineering audience is broad and multidisciplinary. Practitioners work in a variety of organizations, including institutions of higher learning, design, manufacturing, and consulting firms, as well as federal, state, and local government agencies. A rationale for a general mechanical engineering handbook is that every practitioner, researcher, and bureaucrat cannot be an expert on every topic, especially in so broad and multidisciplinary a field, and may need an authoritative professional summary of a subject with which he or she is not intimately familiar.
