The purpose of this Handbook is to provide readers with a ready reference source for the practicing engineers in various industries; it is written in a very comprehensive format and the material contained in it is divided into thirty sections encompassing the field of engineering. The ultimate goal of the author was to provide the latest updates in the classical engineering fields. It shall serve the needs of all engineers who are engaged in the practice of the their professions. The intention is to replace a huge number of books available today with one highly informative, nicely organized and very definitive source of fundamental knowledge. Nowadays, the fundamentals of engineering include so wide range of knowledge and empirical data; that is why this handbook focuses on the key concepts, models, and equations enabling the engineers to properly analyze, design, and predict the behavior of complex devices and systems, computers, circuits, plants, fuels, and the environment. The author has summarized all data and formulae making the main focus is the provision of the basic theories and appropriate concepts and their application to the field of engineering.
