Book Description

A Dictionary of Mechanical Engineering is one of the latest additions to the market leading Oxford Paperback Reference series. In over 8,500 clear and concise alphabetical entries, and with many helpful line drawings, it provides definitions and explanations for mechanical engineering terms in the core areas of design, stress analysis, dynamics and vibrations, thermodynamics, and fluid mechanics.

Topics covered include heat transfer, combustion, control, lubrication, robotics, instrumentation, and measurement. Where relevant, the dictionary also touches on related subject areas such as acoustics, bioengineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, aeronautical engineering, environmental engineering, and materials science.

To expand its coverage, the dictionary also lists useful entry-level web links which are regularly updated on a dedicated companion website of the dictionary. Extensively cross-referenced, this excellent new volume is the most comprehensive and authoritative dictionary of its kind. It is an essential reference for students of mechanical engineering and for anyone with an interest in the subject.

5My best Oxford dictionary.
By jaime zamora alvarado
This dictionary contains inside its pages some mechanical concept used in the mechanical engineering. Also shows definitions over equipment and mechinery used in the field of mechanical engineering since systems, fluid mechanics, statistical, automotive components, engines, air pollution, machining processes, energy and nuclear power in relationship to mechanical engineering carrer.

So I can recommendate this book.

5Used it on my ME PE
By Judy333333
Bought it to use on the Mechanical Engineer's Professional Exam - ME PE. I actually used it once on the exam. But I like it so much that it will be a handy reference on my desk. Kind of like the Mark's Handbook... but smaller and lighter.... something you will actually be willing to pick up! It has not just definitions, but equations and diagrams to "define" the term.
