Mechanical engineering as said earlier is a popular form of engineering and it is quite complex and very specialized. If you have interests of specializing in this challenging area then you might have to really consider doing some reading.

This will not be a waste, it will give you a head start before other candidates going for the similar roles and will definitely arm you knowledge of some of the main mechanical engineering concepts and theories.

Mechanical Engineering Books Get the Fundamentals from the Best Mechanical Engineering BooksMechanical Engineering Books for Introduction

The introduction of any given career considered for undertaking, is a strong background or foundation. The information you get on the introduction of mechanical engineering is vital as it literally determines the success to be gained in a career as a mechanical engineer.

And given that reading is the only way, you might want to consider reading one of the best introduction books to mechanical engineering known as ‘An Introduction to Mechanical Engineering’ By Michael Clifford and Philip shipway.

This book is a bit costly, yet it is worth the dough. It has received some good reviews and still maintenance and adds to the great deal of information. It is of most benefit to the first year mechanical engineering students and offers a good introduction and overview to the subject.

It is truly a good book to keep and do some references back to whenever the need to remind you of some of the main processes and principles arises along the way.

Mechanical Engineering Books in Form of Handbooks

A mechanical engineering handbook saves you a lot of time. Marks standard handbook for mechanical engineers by E.A. Aballone, T. Baumeisterans A. Saegh is one of the best mechanical engineering books that you can find. It is book provides a comprehensive guidance in all aspects of the field and it has been used over the years as one of the standard handbooks for engineers.

It contains all of the important mathematical methods and engineering principles that are well portrayed in a brief yet a clear and a comprehensible manner. The latest edition is the eleventh one which covers even high technology areas like biotechnology and nanotechnology.

Exclusive of any uncertainties, every engineer should have a good design handbook. Shigley’s Mechanical Engineering Design by R. Budynas and K. Nisbett has been used as the most standard machine design handbook 40 plus years now. The handbook covers the machine design concepts in a clear outline, which explains why it is listed as one of the must-have mechanical engineering books for mechanical engineering students and professionals.

Erik Oberg’s Machinery’s Handbook, almost for a century, has remained in use as a reference book by mechanical and manufacturing engineers, draftsmen, toolmakers, machinists and designers. It fully covers a wide area, from the basics to the more complex concepts. A very user-friendly format has been used in the 28th edition plus revised material on manufacturing processes, tools and tool making e.t.c

Specialty Mechanical Engineering Books

Mechanical engineering being a very dynamic field, it has lots of branches; thermodynamics is just one of them. One of the best and also most popular books on this topic is ‘Fundamentals of thermodynamics by C. Borgnakke and R.E. Sonntag. It is an undoubtedly the ideal book for both professionals and the students. This is because it provides a comprehensive guidance to classical thermodynamics. It is packed with examples, homework problems as well as illustrations to help students gain a better understanding on this topic.

When it comes to design engineers, they are expected to have knowledge of material science. Therefore, in search for in-depth knowledge on the properties and behaviors of different materials, then W.N Callister and D.G. Rethwisch’s Materials Science and Engineering: an introduction, is a must read book. This book covers all the major materials which are commonly used in the manufacture of machines like ceramics, polymers and metals. It also includes discussions on the relationships that exist between the structural elements of materials and their properties.

Another of the best choice is ‘Mechanical Engineering: BTEC National Engineering specialist Units’ by Alan Darbyshire. It is a book that profoundly describes some of the specialist units of mechanical engineering. Some of the topics are; mechanical systems and technology and advanced applications and principles.

There is also a book known as ‘Practical Robot Design’ by Ercan, Kanniah and Rad. It is one of the very interesting books that give you an insight into the modern practical and theoretical developments in robotics.

The books summarized above are fairly general and they outline some of the main things that you need to be aware of so as to become a good mechanical engineer. Nonetheless, there are thousands of more specialist and also fascinating books that may as well be relevant depending on one’s interests.

One should be very flexible in the approach of reading and studying and make sure that the choice of mechanical engineering books will educate and also quench the interest of the subject.

The Mechanics of Cell Phones  is be simply explained here below. If one’s cell phone is not compatible with the frequencies coming from the aerial tower, then it does not matter what SIM card the person is using. From reading the  cell phones in electronic engineering’ essay on this website, one  will learn that the cell phones communicate via radio signals. Since the radio spectrum is a very crowded place, each cell phone is assigned a certain frequency at which it can broadcast in Mechanics of Cell Phones. Engineering in Kenya has more articles

Unfortunately, different countries give different frequencies to their cellular networks. So before one decides to travel with his/ her cell phone, one needs to make sure that it will still work in the destination country.

Physics Lab Report

Posted by on Mar 18, 2018 in Physics | 0 comments

The skill of writing the Physics Lab Report even the existence of such a report has probably fallen somewhat into disuse with the advent of the photocopied worksheet. Yet it is a vital part of industrial and academic research, and indeed can in these activities be required in law to establish, for example, patent rights. Engineering in Kenya has more articles.

When writing the Physics Lab Report, one should us plain and simple language for easier understanding by the examiner. The normal layout of reports taught in the English class should be followed.

The whole point of a Physics Lab Report is that it should

  • say exactly what was done, and the date stated;
  • enable someone else to do the same thing at some future date;
  • Be durable, verifiable and clear.

Any rules that are used must attend to these points; anything else is spurious. Plain language is the least spurious of all in writing Physics Lab Report.
