Engineering science provides a thorough grounding in applied physics for all engineering specialisms including aeronautical engineering, electronics, civil engineering, marine engineering, materials science, nanotechnology, mechanical engineering, control engineering, etc.

Engineering science is the key to understanding and solving many everyday problems, such as why some structures are stronger than others, some materials conduct electricity more readily than others and why an airframe is able to withstand the stresses imposed on it during high speed flight.

Engineering science provides us with a means of bridging the gap between different disciplines by applying scientific principles to the analysis and solution of real-world problems. Our book is divided into seven main parts:

  • Part 1 : Mechanics of materials
  • Part 2 : Dynamics
  • Part 3 : Thermodynamics
  • Part 4 : Electrostatics and electromagnetism
  • Part 5 : Direct current
  • Part 6 : Transients
  • Part 7 : Alternating current

Each part has been divided into chapters and each chapter is devoted to a major topic. Each chapter is then further sub-divided into decimal numbered sections. Throughout this book we have provided worked examples that show how the ideas introduced in the text can be put into practice. We have also included problems and questions at various stages in the text. In addition, a set of Review questions will be found at the end of each chapter. The answers to the Test your knowledge and Review problems are available for downloading from this website.
