The declared purpose of the present handbook was to provide in a single book a ready and useful reference tool for the practicing engineers. The content of the volume has been arranged in a very comprehensive format being divided in thirty sections encompassing all related fields of engineering. One of the main goals was to give readers the updated information in the classical engineering fields comprising mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering together with the materials science and mathematics. The publication is intended to service the information and data needs of all engineering specialists involved in the real-life engineering practice. Another purpose of the authors was to replace a huge number of volumes with one exceptionally informative, perfectly organized and definitive source of fundamental engineering knowledge. The main focus has been made on the basic concepts, plus models and equations enabling engineers to perform a proper analysis, design and prediction of the behavior of different devices and systems, electrical circuits, fuels, computers etc. They have summarized all important formulas and data with particular emphasis on the theories and concepts plus their application to various fields of engineering; the readers will find the fundamental engineering concepts explained, defined and illustrated in a proper order serving the practical needs.
