This 28th edition of a 5x7" tabbed reference remains true to its original design as a comprehensive yet practical reference for mechanical and manufacturing engineers, designers, draftsmen, toolmakers, and machinists. This edition contains major revisions and new material on a variety of topics. The detailed tables of contents at the beginning of each section have been expanded and fine tuned to simplify locating topics. Major sections have been revised, including sections on mathematics, mechanics and strength of materials, properties of materials, dimensioning, gauging and measuring, fasteners, and machine elements. There is new material on solid geometry, calculating thread dynamics, fluid mechanics, CNC programming, and ANSI and ISO drafting practices. The handbook is also available in a CD-ROM version and in a 'larger-print' edition. The 27th edition is cited in Resources for College Libraries (2007).
