Mechanical Engineering Principles Book By C. T. F. Ross and J. Bird (PDF-Book-Summary-Review-Online Reading-Download)


Mechanical Engineering Principles Book By C. T. F. Ross and J. Bird Mechanical Engineering Principles provides a student-friendly introduction to basic engineering topics.

This book presents mechanical principles and technology through examples and applications rather than theory. John Bird and Carl Ross do not assume any prior training in engineering studies and as such this book can act as a basic textbook for various engineering courses. This approach enables students to develop a solid understanding of engineering principles and their use in practice. These theoretical concepts are supported by 320 fully solved problems, nearly 600 additional problems with answers, and 276 multiple-choice questions that provide the reader with a solid foundation on each topic.

The new edition is up to date with the latest BTEC National specifications and can also be used in undergraduate courses in mechanical, civil, structural, aeronautical, and marine engineering, along with naval architecture. A chapter has been added at the beginning of revision mathematics, as it is not possible to advance in engineering studies without some basic knowledge of mathematics. Minor modifications and some more resolved issues have also been added throughout the text.

Color design aids navigation and highlights key points
Student-friendly approach with numerous solved problems, multiple-choice and short-answer questions, exercises, review tests, and nearly 400 diagrams
Supported by free online material for students and teachers
Readers will also be able to access the free companion website at www.routledge / CW / bird, where they will find videos of Carl Ross's hands-on demonstrations. The complete worked solutions of the 600 additional problems will be available for use by the teachers/instructors, as well as the complete solutions and the grading scheme for the 8 revision tests.

Book Review
The course is well organized with the required mathematics. at first. There is also an authors website for additional videos and diagrams.
