In this Vook, Dr. Vook, Ph.D, breaks the challenging, useful world of mechanical engineering into eight chapters that will keep you engaged and help you remember all that you’ve learned. You’ll begin your journey with a brief introduction to mechanical engineering. Then you’ll dive into statics, learning about mass, acceleration, forces, Newton's laws of motion, vectors, and free body diagrams. You’ll continue your exploration of statics with moments, rigid-body equilibrium, structural analysis, and friction and applications to static analysis. Finally, you’ll explore dynamics with: projectile motion, theory and application of Newton's laws of motion, conservation of energy and momentum, vibrations, and a look at cutting-edge research in mechanical engineering. Tip boxes in each lesson give you fascinating facts, hints and history about each topic. As usual, Dr. Vook has got it all covered.
This book does not give any proper examples or illustrations to explain the text, a big downfall in explaining engineering! I gave up after a few chapters,
I have my qualifications from 30 years ago and wanted a good refresher, sadly this was not it!
