Full coverage of materials and mechanical design in engineeringMechanical Engineers’ Handbook, Fourth Edition provides a quick guide to specialized areas you may encounter in your work, giving you access to the basics of each and pointing you toward trusted resources for further reading, if needed. The accessible information inside offers discussions, examples, and analyses of the topics covered.

This first volume covers materials and mechanical design, giving you accessible and in-depth access to the most common topics you’ll encounter in the discipline: carbon and alloy steels, stainless steels, aluminum alloys, copper and copper alloys, titanium alloys for design, nickel and its alloys, magnesium and its alloys, superalloys for design, composite materials, smart materials, electronic materials, viscosity measurement, and much more.

  • Presents comprehensive coverage of materials and mechanical design
  • Offers the option of being purchased as a four-book set or as single books, depending on your needs
  • Comes in a subscription format through the Wiley Online Library and in electronic and custom formats

Engineers at all levels of industry, government, or private consulting practice will find Mechanical Engineers’ Handbook, Volume 1 a great resource they’ll turn to repeatedly as a reference on the basics of materials and mechanical design.


As the discipline of mechanical engineering continues to expand, so does the ever-trusted Mechanical Engineers’ Handbook. In a 4-volume format, this Fourth Edition provides the most current off-the-shelf reference to every topic in the field. Spanning specializations from aerospace to petroleum and beyond, the Handbook helps you work efficiently across industries and job functions.

Unlike other handbooks, the Mechanical Engineers’ Handbook goes beyond lists of data and formulas, providing examples and discussion of each topic to help you quickly understand how to get the outcomes you want. Volume 1, Materials and Engineering Mechanics is your complete guide to what makes materials suitable for particular uses, as well as the methodologies used to ensure success.

Inside this volume:

  • 10 revised chapters on materials, including metals, plastics, composites, ceramics, smart materials, electronic materials, and packaging
  • 6 entirely new chapters on engineering mechanics, covering measurement of force, strain, viscosity, tribology, and acoustics
  • Contributions from 35 industry-leading experts
  • Exhaustive charts and tables illustrate properties and best uses of materials
