Mechanical Engineering

All Things Flow: Fluid Mechanics for the Natural Sciences

The textbook covers fundamentals of basic flow processes, emphasizing on vortices, waves and hydraulic jumps.

Applied Strength of Materials for Engineering Technology [PDF]

This algebra-based text is designed specifically for Engineering Technology students, using both SI and US Customary units. All example problems are fully worked out with unit conversions. Updated each semester using student comments, with an average of 80 changes per edition.

Includes: Appendices

Basic Engineering Science: A Systems, Accounting, and Modeling Approach

This textbook is based on a paradigm that emphasizes the common, underlying concepts of engineering science. By focusing on the underlying concepts and stressing the similarities between subjects that are often taught as unconnected topics, this approach provides engineering students a foundational framework for recognizing and building connections as they travel through their education.

Includes: Problems, practice questions.

Engineering Mechanics for Structures

This text explores the mechanics of solids and statics as well as the strength of materials and elasticity theory. In addition to introducing the fundamentals of structural analysis, it combines and applies important concepts in engineering mechanics. Its many design exercises encourage creative student initiative and systems thinking.

Engineering Statics: Open and Interactive

This peer reviewed textbook was originally written for an Engineering Mechanics statistics course. Reviews on the Open Textbook Library.

Includes: Exercises, interactive figures, key questions, appendices

Intermediate Fluid Mechanics

This book builds on introductory fluid mechanics. It is not meant to be an in-depth study of potential flow or viscous flow, but is meant to expose students to additional analysis techniques for both of these categories of flows.

Introduction to Linear, Time-Invariant, Dynamic Systems for Students of Engineering

The textbook covers the dynamic behavior of physical systems, with some emphasis on simple mechanical and electrical systems representative of or analogous to those often encountered in aerospace and mechanical engineering. Reviews are available.

Includes: Homework problems

MERLOT Mechanical Engineering 

MERLOT indexes OER from many other sources. Their Mechanical Engineering category includes a variety of material types, including textbooks.

The Primacy of the Public

This short text is on engineering ethics.

Includes: Reflection questions, key themes

Open Textbook Library Mechanical Engineering Texts

The Open Textbook Library gathers major open textbooks from other sources, with clear criteria as to what is included. This list contains materials identified as related to mechanical engineering.

Simulation Modeling and Arena, 3rd Ed.

Discrete-event simulation is an important tool for the modeling of complex systems. Simulation is used to represent manufacturing, transportation, and service systems in a computer program to perform experiments on a computer. Simulation modeling involves elements of system modeling, computer programming, probability and statistics, and engineering design. Simulation Modeling and Arena, by Dr. Manuel Rossetti, is an introductory textbook for a first course in discrete-event simulation modeling and analysis for upper-level undergraduate students as well as entering graduate students. The text is focused on engineering students (primarily industrial engineering); however, the text is also appropriate for advanced business majors, computer science majors, and other disciplines where simulation is practiced. Practitioners interested in learning simulation and Arena could also use this book independently of a course.

Includes: Examples, summaries, exercises

Strength of Materials Supplement for Power Engineering

This work complements the Applied Strength of Materials for Engineering Technology by Barry Dupen and is used in teaching Strength of Materials to Power Engineering students at the British Columbia Institute of Technology.

Includes: Problems and answers
