Description

Mechanical Engineer’s Reference Book: 11th Edition presents a comprehensive examination of the use of Systéme International d’ Unités (SI) metrication. It discusses the effectiveness of such a system when used in the field of engineering. It addresses the basic concepts involved in thermodynamics and heat transfer. Some of the topics covered in the book are the metallurgy of iron and steel; screw threads and fasteners; hole basis and shaft basis fits; an introduction to geometrical tolerancing; mechanical working of steel; high strength alloy steels; advantages of making components as castings; and basic theories of material properties. The definitions and classifications of refractories are fully covered. An in-depth account of the mechanical properties of non-ferrous materials is provided. Different fabrication techniques are completely presented. A chapter is devoted to description of tubes for water, gas, sanitation, and heating services. Another section focuses on the accountant's measure of productivity.
The book can provide useful information to engineers, metallurgists, students, and researchers.
