Eshbach's Handbook of Engineering Fundamentals
Fifth Edition
by Myer Kutz

Eshbach's Handbook of Engineering Fundamentals fully updates and reshapes the text, focusing on the basics, the important formulas, tables, and standards necessary for complete and accurate knowledge across engineering disciplines.

Includes new material on topics such as:

• Mechanics of Incompressible Fluids: Electromagnetics and Circuits; Acoustics; and Engineering Economy
• Metallic, Plastic, and Ceramic Materials
