The standard reference work in engineering for over fifty years.now updated and revised Eshbach's Handbook of Engineering Fundamentals Fourth Edition The Fourth Edition of Eshbach's Handbook of Engineering Fundamentals provides comprehensive coverage of major engineering subdivisions, including electronics, controls, fluids, and more, with special emphasis on mechanical engineering. Chapters have been rewritten and revised to combine solid coverage of engineering fundamentals with up-to-date developments in the field since the publication of the previous edition. The Handbook reflects the computer's growing role in engineering design, practice, and research:
* provides new material on electromagnetics, circuit theory, and electronic applications
* includes new material on computer electronics with orientation toward nonelectrical engineers
* provides expanded coverage of computers and controls
* treats the field of aerospace engineering with separate chapters on aeronautics and astronauts
Revisions acknowledge the universal use of the hand-held calculator:
* omits traditional mathematical tables such as sines, cosines
* includes up-to-date material on units, standards, and measurements
The book also treats the increased importance of control technology with an expanded chapter on the theory and application of control methodology. Eshbach's Handbook of Engineering Fundamentals provides engineers and students with a single source guide to engineering fundamentals and cutting edge engineering technology.

From the Publisher:

The Fourth Edition is a revision of the standard, one-volume reference for engineers and students in engineering fields, especially mechanical engineering. Tapley's careful revision continues to embody the fundamental laws and theories of science basic to all disciplines of engineering practice, including electronics, controls, fluids, mathematics, etc., but now features new chapters on more contemporary issues such as computer engineering, materials, aeronautics and acoustics, among many others. Out-dated tables and materials have been deleted. The Fourth Edition retains the ``capsule'' style presentation of the earlier editions, providing readers with a basic understanding of the subject, together with guidance to more specific literature.

From the Inside Flap:

Eshbach’s Handbook of Engineering Fundamentals, the standard engineering reference work for over fifty years, has been updated and revised in this Fourth Edition. The coverage of the revised Handbook addresses all the fundamental subdivisions of engineering, including electronics, controls, fluids, with a special emphasis on the various elements of mechanical and aerospace engineering. The Fourth Edition includes entirely new chapters on materials, acoustics, and computers. In addition, all chapters have been rewritten and revised to reflect changes since the previous edition of the Handbook was published. The coverage is organized around these main subjects: mathematical and physical units, standards, and tables; mathematics; mechanics of rigid bodies; mechanics of deformable bodies; mechanics of incompressible fluids; aeronautics; astronautics; automatic control; computer science; engineering thermodynamics and heat transfer; electromagnetic and circuits; electronics; radiation, light, and acoustics; chemistry; engineering economics; and properties of materials. As in the previous editions, the coverage is given in capsule form to give the reader a basic understanding of the topic. References to more specific literature are also provided with each entry.
