About this book


Mechanical engineering, an engineering discipline borne of the needs of the industrial revolution, is once again asked to do its substantial share in the call for industrial renewal. The general call is urgent as we face profound is­ sues of productivity and competitiveness that require engineering solutions, among others. The Mechanical Engineering Series features graduate texts and research monographs intended to address the need for information in contemporary areas of mechanical engineering. The series is conceived as a comprehensive one that covers a broad range of concentrations important to mechanical engineering graduate education and research. We are fortunate to have a distinguished rost er of consulting editors on the advisory board, each an expert in one the areas of concentra­ tion. The names of the consulting editors are listed on the next page of this volume. The areas of concentration are: applied mechanics; biome chan­ ics; computational mechanics; dynamic systems and control; energetics; mechanics of materials; processing; thermal science; and tribology.
