About this book
This comprehensive Springer Handbook covers all major areas encompassed by the broad field of mechanical engineering. This second, substantially updated edition with many new chapters provides easily accessible but authoritative information in a clear structure.
The book starts with concise chapters that cover the most important fundamentals of mathematics, mechanics and thermodynamics needed specifically in the engineering disciplines. It then provides a holistic description of the most relevant materials in engineering, including a discussion of mechanical and physical properties on the microscopic as well as the macroscopic scale. Additional chapters put special emphasis on corrosion, tribology and inspection. Manufacturing techniques and machining processes, from traditional casting and forming to state-of-the-art precision machining on the microscopic scale are also extensively covered. An extra chapter focuses on quality control. Contents continue with in depth descriptions of machine and system design, from machine elements over engineering design for piston machines, pressure vessels, heat exchangers, turbomachinery and construction machines. A completely new part is dedicated to the various areas of industries in mobility on ground, air and water. A brief outlook into related fields of electrical engineering and power generation provides an ideal starting point for the practitioner venturing in these areas. The book concludes with an annex summarizing important key data for practical reference in the day-to-day work of an engineer.
Written by distinguished experts from industry and academia, this comprehensive Springer Handbook provides authoritative and state-of-the-art information of international validity for the professional engineer and those to be.

About the editors
Karl-Heinrich Grote is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg, Germany. Since 1995 he is the editor of the DUBBEL- Taschenbuch für den Maschinenbau, the most renown German language book for mechanical engineering.
Prof. Grote received his Dr.-Ing. in 1984 from the Technical University Berlin, Germany. After a professional stay in the USA , he became the Head of the Engineering Design Division at the "Ingenieurgesellschaft für Auto und Verkehr, IAV" in Berlin. In 1990 he joined the Mechanical Engineering Department at the California State University, Long Beach, USA. From June 1995 to October 2020 he was Chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering – Engineering Design at the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg. After staying as Visiting Professor at Caltech, Pasadena, USA from 2002 to 2004, he was appointed Dean of the College of Mechanical Engineering at the Otto-von-Guericke University until 2017. In 2013 he also joined the Western Norway University of Applied Science in Bergen, Norway, where he serves up to now as Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Marine Engineering. In 1993 he was awarded of the Ring of Honor from the German Professional Engineering Society (VDI) and the TRW Excellence Award (USA).
Dr. Hamid Hefazi is Professor and Chair of the Mechanical Engineering Department at the State University of New York (SUNY) – Korea located in Incheon, Republic of Korea. He received his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Southern California in 1985. He has been involved in a broad range of teaching and research in fluid mechanics, aeroacoustics and aerodynamics. His more recent research has been focused on hydrodynamics, advanced multidisciplinary design and optimization (MDO) methods and their applications to Naval Engineering. Dr. Hefazi has been the Principal Investigator for more than one-hundred externally funded research projects, including projects sponsored by the US National Science Foundation, NASA, the US Office of Naval Research and the Boeing Company among others. Dr. Hefazi has extensively worked as a consultant for wind-energy companies and holds a patent on an innovative vertical axis wind turbine. Dr. Hefazi served as the director of the Boeing Technology Center,”at California State University, Long Beach for 12 years. He is the recipient of many awards including the Boeing Company’s Silver Eagle award for innovation and the US Department of Defense’s Nunn-Perry Award for 2005 and 2006 for his work with Northrop Grumman Space Technology. He is an associate fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
