Description

Engineering Science, Second Edition provides a comprehensive discussion of the fundamental concepts in engineering. The book is comprised of 16 chapters that provide the theories and applications of different engineering concepts. The coverage of the text includes statics (equilibrium and structures), dynamics (motions and vibrations), and energy and thermal systems. The book also discusses electrical circuits, including direct and alternating current circuits, and electric and magnetic fields, including electromagnetism. The text will be useful to students of the various branches of engineering, such as mechanical, electrical, and civil.
