Design Engineer's Reference Guide: Mathematics, Mechanics, and Thermodynamics

Keith L. Richards
March 29, 2017

Author Keith L. Richards believes that design engineers spend only a small fraction of time actually designing and drawing, and the remainder of their time finding relevant design information for a specific method or problem. He draws on his own experience as a mechanical engineering designer to...
