    1-0 out of 5 stars Why is this book still in print?
    I don't believe I've ever read a more illogical, poorly organized, overly difficult piece of trash in my life. I'm guessing the only reason my professor used this book is because some of the people in the acknowledgments are affiliated with Penn State. That's probably the only reason anybody uses this book. To anybody who will be required to waste their money on this book, don't even bother reading the sections because they make absolutely no sense and are completely unrelated to the example problems. There is no reason, in my opinion, why a student shouldn't be able to learn and completely understand the material covered in a course soley from reading the textbook. That is clearly not the case with this book, though.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Too difficult
    Without doubt, this is the worst textbook I ever had the misfortune to read.

    I used it for a rushed 1st year dynamics course, and found the book utterly useless. The concepts are scattered and are introduced using complicated mathematics, some of which is beyond 1st year level. Even simply trying to read through the verbal explanations is near impossible for beginner students, simply because of the depth of knowledge required to do so.

    The problems, while plentiful, are simply too difficult. Original thinking is one thing, these problems require something else entirely. I realise, of course, that textbooks must be challenging in order to maintain academic standards, but this book goes too far, to the point where students end up discouraged from the subject simply because the concepts are so difficult.

    While I maintain the greatest respect for Mr Beer, as I am sure that he is a brilliant engineer (his book is testament to that), the text is simply too in-depth. For future editions, I recommend that he go through the book and greatly simplify both the language and the problems.

    Until this book is simplified, I recommend the Hibbler Dyanmucs text to any other students out there.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very solid and important text
    Very few books provide solid material like this one (Meriam's is an excellent one too). In fact I have become interested in mechanics after I was Introduced to this text for the 1st time in 1984. Recently, I started to collect and work all the editions of this book. This text requires a skilful instructor that can present the material in a way worthy of this text. please do not hate this text if you really want unsurpass knowledge in mechanics, because there are many "engineering mechanics" texts around you that teach nothing.

    1-0 out of 5 stars World funest class
    If you ever have pleasure in taking this class, procede to the nearest gun shop and pick a fight with billy. He will know what to do. You engin-i-nerd.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible
    This book is horrible. The concepts are loosely introduced, you see variables all over the place without understanding what they mean. The explanations are also very weak. The author seems to be all over the place. For someone taking a first year dynamics course, this book may not enable you to understand the key principles. The examples are are very poor and do not prepare you to the end of chapter problems. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Review of Vector Mechanics for Engineers
    This book is written with the assumption the reader understands statics prior to using this text. The author states repeatedly throughout the text that somewhat difficult ideas are obvious, and gives no further explanation as to the derrivation of his conclusions; often leaving the reader more lost than they started.
    Sample problems are well laid out, yet do not prepare you for the level of understanding required for homework problems at the end of each chapter.
    This book was used in a Sophomore college class and left the class feeling unprepared for subsequent Engineering courses requiring a firm understanding of this subject.
    Altogether this book should not be used as a first attempt to understand statics unless the user has prior knowledge of statics.

    4-0 out of 5 stars how about a sol'n manual
    this book is colorful and all, but it will be helpful if there is a sol'n manual 'cuz the sample problems are very easy and the hw are outrageously hard

    5-0 out of 5 stars Designed for the Student
    One of the best, if not the best text book on fundemental structural analysis.

    A beginners best bet.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!
    I found Beer and Johnston's version of Statics very easy to follow. All problems are presented in an easy-to-understand format with multiple-color graphics. I highly recommend this over any other statics book I have tried. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Superlative! A must have!
    Superlative!  The ENERGY EFFICIENCY MANUAL by Donald Wulfinghoff is a "must have" for professionals, libraries, facility managers, policy makers, homeowners, and anyone else who is serious about saving energy and cashing in on lower energy bills. It is the ultimate energy saving resource for businesses, industry, and government. PLUS, it will save money and reduce pollution, satisfying corporate bottom lines, policy makers, and environmentalists all at the same time. This book is unique. Highly informative, illustration-rich, and user-friendly, it is treasure trove of everything you need to know about energy efficiency from A to Z. Don't bother looking elsewhere -- the ENERGY EFFICIENCY MANUAL simply has it all. This book will pay for itself almost as fast as you can spot a hot air leak or install an energy-efficient light bulb!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A secret weapon for the energy auditor
    As an energy auditor I'd almost call the Energy Efficiency Manual a secret weapon, except it has so many good ideas that I can't help but show it to many of the customers and prospective customers I meet. The diagrams are very useful, as is the self contained but well cross-referenced way in which each improvement measure has been written. For example, talking to the maintenance manager of a hospital, we looked at the diagrams of hot/cold deck multi-zone systems while discussing the pros and cons of upgrading a constant volume air conditioning system to a variable volume system. It is by far the most useful book on energy management that I have ever read (well, in the case of the Energy Efficiency Manual, that I have partially read - its an enormously large book!), and the ratings of each of the measures are particularly useful, along with the practical, no-nonsense approach. The book is extremely well cross referenced and Wulfinghoff has covered an enormous body of knowledge in writing the book. As someone fairly new to the field I'm grateful that he went to the effort of documenting and making available his knowledge and 30 odd years experience in the Energy Efficiency Manual.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Everything you always wanted to know, in plain English
    I nodded my head in agreement while reading Wulfinghoff's philosophy about energy savings in commercial and light industrial facilities. He distills 20+ years of experience in this field with practical, no-nonsense how-tos to gain energy and dollar savings in a wide variety of facilities and end-uses: lighting, water use, steam systems, space heating, water heating, air conditioning, scheduling, pumps, energy management controls: its all here in a well-written, well-illustrated book.

    Perhaps best of all, the author goes beyond theoretical considerations of high-tech efficiency products, with precautions of what works and what might fall short. He also reminds facility managers to be mindful of the human factors that can foil our best efforts. He offers suggestions on how to plan and manage efficiency upgrades complete with information for building operators and occupants, so that the savings persist.

    Highly recommended for anyone managing energy use in facilities, ranging from individual buildings to college campuses to government facilities. [I am a local government energy manager myself.]

    5-0 out of 5 stars Provides practical advice for avoiding pitfalls
    Donald Wulfinghoff's Energy Efficiency Manual is a massive, 1,536-page reference work that is organized to guide the reader quickly to the right information for their particular energy project, problem, or inquiry. The first part of this "user friend" manual has 400 logically grouped activities for improving energy efficiency. each activity begins with Ratings and a Selection Scorecard to help the reader judge the merits and difficulties of that particular activity. "Economics" sidebars estimates the savings, cost, and payback period. The "Traps & Tricks" sidebars provides practical advice for avoiding pitfalls plaguing energy conservation efforts. Energy Efficiency Manual will earn back its cover price over and over again and is an essential, core reference for personal, professional, and community library energy conservation and energy efficiency reference book collections.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Efficiency in technical publications.
    I have been in the Architect/Engineering business for over 20 years. There were several cases in the past where this book would have been of great value. The Energy Efficiency Manual is now my standard resource in saving money and energy for my clients. Mr. Wulfinghoff has invested over 20 years in compiling this manual and this is reflected in the quality of the content. I am particularly impressed with the format, which is extremely accessible to anyone. The book gets right to the point in a highly straightforward manner. I would recommend that authors of other technical books take note and attempt the same. It would certainly make my life easier. In other words I honestly feel that I got my money's worth this time and recommend it to anyone who wants to save energy. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars An author's view:
    My part of this book (mechanical and plumbing) is designed to first show how to minimize the need for mechanical equipment by designing with the climate and site firmly in mind. First configure a building to optimize daylighting, solar heating, and various climate-appropriate passive cooling methods. Also, to store rainwater when appropriate. Then, proceed to choose and size the back-up equipment. In this way, designers conserve non-renewable energy, utilize natural (on-site) energy sources, and also help building occupants stay in touch with the outdoors. I believe that we'll tend to care more about a clean outdoor environment if we are kept aware of its condition.
    For a summary of this approach, read Chapter One. I hope you enjoy this book, even when it is your textbook! That was my object. Suggestions? I'm at jreyn@darkwing.uoregon.edu

    5-0 out of 5 stars Formulas done right
    This book is very good. I really like the way the formulas are given, with all the variables immediatelly defined. When reading it was amazing. As the questions arose in my mind as to what something meant, the next sentence or two satisfied my curiosity.
    While other books tend claim that a piece of information is "beyond the scope of this text" (yet then expect knowledge of the topic), Ogota takes a couple of extra paragraphs to explain the basics of what is needed for better understanding.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Control system design the way it was meant to be!
    This is an excellent controls text. All concepts are beautifully explained and developed. The examples in the book are clear and concise and the exercises cover a broad range of control system design applications. One of the greatest perks of this book is the extensive coverage of MATLAB applications to control system design. Not only do you learn how to do it mathematically but you learn how to program and let MATLAB aid you. You get double the learning for the price of one text!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Art of modern control in one masterpiece!!!
    First of all, the book is written by an extraordinary authority in the field, one of few such professionals in the world. It covers the whole subject of modern control engineering, so if You know most of it, what is in the book, You know a lot of the subject. There are many clear and precise physical models, block diagrams, MatLab instructions, the results given by a computer, the problems solved or/and explained by the language of mathematics and theory of control. ALL IN ONE. The book is The Art of Modern Control Engineering. However, You have to have at least some physical and mathematical bases to learn and see the beauty and art of it all.

    I used this book for two semesters. The only downside is that this book is too thick, but the new edition looks better. I found the MATLAB program(s) very useful, in addition to a bunch of solved sample problems at the end of each Chapter. I have been told that the latest edition has information on Signal Flow Graphs (Mason's Rule), which is very critical if you are analysing the topic of Controls from an Electrical Engineer's point of view.

    Excelente para consegir la mayoria de las formulas relacionadas con calculos de esfuerzo y deformacion. Contiene cantidad de referencias para cada caso, de ser necesario rpofundizar mas en el tema. Lo recomiendo ampliamente, lo utilizo en todos mis calculos estructurales.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Roark's has been not been improved
    The book is now twice the thickness of the 6th Edition book. This makes opening and keeping open the book much more difficult. Also the paper type chosen makes it difficult to turn the pages.

    I highly recommend keeping the sixth edition until they figure what is truly important to Structural/Mechanical Engineer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Every structural engineer should have a copy.
    A very usefull reference book for the practising structural or mechanical engineer. However it could be significantly improved by some modernisation and rationalisation ie: removing references out-dated information and references from the 1920's and 1930's,etc. Also by standardising variables and equations, eg: the variable for the width of a section may be 'b' in one chapter 'd' in another, also 'tw' may represent flange thickness rather than web thickness, etc. The book examples are all in U.S. (lbs, feet) units, annoying the European (N, m) user, and may start on one page, then be interupted by 20 pages of tables before continuing on. So the general layout could do with being significantly improved.

    4-0 out of 5 stars still crazy after all this years.....
    R&Y's publication, which I became aware of in 1986 is stillan amazing collection of engineering formulas in statics, stability,dynamics and thermal calculations. The IFE uses ANSYS FEA technologyesp. for complex geometries and nonlinear issues: but once in a whilewe appreciate R&Y's work to retain contact to quantities and forthe insight (wrt dimensioning) which interaction with formulas cangive.

    R&Y's text sections give much insight, the section onstrenght of materials terminology can be useful (learn - refresh) aswell as the brief immersion into experimental issues.

    5-0 out of 5 stars great book for those less worried about theory
    This book came in very handy as a compliment to Meriam's contribution (5th edition).For those of us less technically-minded, yet required to take courses such as engineering dynamics, this book left the theory and procedural derivations to another day so that at first by practice may understanding come about.When I couldn't quite comprehend what Meriam's book said, I found my answer in this book.There are better (ahem, simpler) explanations of not only the ideas but the math as well, a major help to someone increasingly out of practice, however the appendices are weak so don't look to them for much review.Answers to odd-numbered problems are provided.Note: This book doesn't make the learning easy, it just softens the blow sufficiently.

    + it *really* tells you *how* to tackle (and solve) a problem incl *all* details (appropriate coordinate system, sign conventions with choice of vector calculus or scalar vector components, magic with all different kind of unit vectors, free-body-diagrams) in the fantastic 'Procedures for Analysis'. it tells you why which choice is favourable in a straight-forward direct manner, didactically perfect.
    + only one to deserve the title 'Eng Mech for Dummies', best intro book among all competitors. It *is* a book for dummies! :-)
    + 10/E no more errors in problem solutions/answers: "two other professionals have checked all the problems for clarity and accuracy of the solutions"
    + nicest pics, photos and graphical layout. countless supporting illustrations. modern.
    + consistent and logical notation throughout (body rotation is always 'omega', coordsys rotation always 'OMEGA') and detailed full explanations of vector symbols and their resolution to coordsys axes
    + comprehensive: covers all topics (all standard topics)
    + up to six supporting examples per chapter subsection. many!
    + numerous additional probs (see companion website, see Appendix for FE Exams)
    + great examples. with full use of vector analysis, vector calculus. Shames4 has even better examples, but Shames4 has not as many as Hibbeler10. So read also Shames4-examples!
    + after reading a full section, you *will* be able to apply the concepts!
    + neat coverage of 3-dim rigid body kinetics. Hibbeler is here better than Meriam5 but a bit worse than Shames4. All books cover this topic simply too short, unfortunately.
    + full use of 3-dim's in particle motion. spicey extra equations: tan 'psi', cylindrical coord's, 'rho' curvature y(x), bi-normal vector, etc.
    + if price plays a role: check out the Combined Value Added package at: http://tinyurl.com/295yr Great deal!!
    + excellent companion website with additional 1000 online problems. many other printed supplements etc. Top product support.
    Yep, a few Con's are still there:
    - no intro of sherical coord's
    - incomprehensive treatment of particle systems (*very* irritating!)
    - no rigorous math derivations of formulas (all omitted!), instead presentation of ready-to-use-formulas in coloured boxes. not very serious procedure, but common for a Book4Dummies. too concise at times.
    - confusing, un-unified treatment of moments/products or inertia
    - low quality page paper. small-size formatted book. physical quality not as outstanding as Meriam5.
    - lousy, valueless appendix
    - too few problems, and only a few challanging. lack of illustrations here!
    - problem set is worse than Meriam5(best!),Shames4(great!but too few), and BeerJohnston7(good!numerous)
    to sum up, i have compared four major texts: Meriam5, Shames4, BeerJohnston7 and Hibbeler10. All are okay, none is perfect, and in many respects they are equal/similar. Differences are tiny, very fine, but for taking a final decision, they are crucial. if you have read my reviews on the other three texts, there s not much to add here. I finally chose Hibbeler's as my picture book and problem set collection book. Top-choice. Have a close look at it *before* you decide for a different one (alternative: Meriam5)! might be a matter of taste between MERIAM5 and HIBBELER10. but *never* BJ7!!! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Undergrad Masterpiece
    This text is a great introduction to Fluid Mechanics. The derivations are very easy to follow, and the problems apply to many real life situations. For graduate students, it may be a little to light weight, but for undergrads it provides a broad base of information.

    5-0 out of 5 stars good textbook
    Good textbook, good examples, and easy to read. Anyone with a solid physics & calculus background will be comfortable with this book.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Where's the beef??
    Lot of fluid problems, good graphics, and very good examples, though not nearly enough. You're going to need good lecture notes or a tutor.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Poor examples,
    The book is easy to read however, it is very hard to solve the problems. The author does not do a very good job showing which equation's are used. In the example problems the author bring's in values which are constant's but does not indicate what the values are and the units. It is a very hard text book to follow. However the derivation of the formulas are done very well.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Reference Manual
    Not only is this book great as a tool to study for the PE exam, it also is one of the most useful mechanical engineering reference books. If there is only one engineering reference book you could have, I would strongly recommend this one!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great PE reference Guide
    I used this book along with the class and the key is to get familiar with the book. Passed the PE on the first try. I still use the book as my primary reference it's that good! Unfortunately, the book doesn't talk to you, or transfer material by osmosis so you still need to take the time and read it. The book doesn't cover fundamentals(if you need this, get the FE book). It gives you cookbook formulas and information needed to solve about 90% of the problems. It may be wise to take a PE refresher course to help walk you through the material. As for the errors, the publisher posts the errata/corrections on the web and keeps it updated. There is also a solutions manual for the book, I highly recommend this if you are preparing for the PE.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Quintessential Engineering Reference
    This is bar-none the most complete and easiest to understand reference and study guide on the market. I used it almost exclusively when studying for and taking the P.E. and passed on the first try. My only regret is that I did not buy a copy upon graduation from college as it and would have most likely increased my on the job learning curve. It is truly a must-have reference for any engineer's bookshelf

    My hat is off to M. R. Lindeburg, P.E.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great tool, but FULL of errors!
    Don't get me wrong, I don't regret buying this book, but the overwhelming number of errors in this book is staggering and inexcusable, especially since all of the formulas and most of the problems should just be cut-n-paste from various respected sources. It's frustrating not knowing if your getting a practice problem wrong because you're doing it wrong or because the book has the wrong formulas, problem wording, problem answers, etc.

    Even the online errata list only covers a portion of the errors.

    5-0 out of 5 stars New Edition
    While evaluating the merits of the other customer reviews I noted that they were all posted prior to this edition. While normally not an issue with this type of reference manual, it is important right now, seeing as how the Mechanical Engineering PE Exam Format is to be changed drastically with the next Exam. I would expect that this new edition has been developed to incorporate this change but have yet to see any comments as to how well it has been changed. I currently possess the previous edition and plan to take the exam in October 2001. While I agree with the other reviewers on the previous editions excellence, I would like to know whether there is any substantial reason to purchase the New Edition and replace my earlier edition. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Useless
    Ok, so i am a chemical engineering student, and this is supposed to be the textbook. Which allegedly would later on make it a forced reference for a student. However, the only useful information is the steam tables, because the properties and other things are insufficient, trust me, the book has sitted on my shelf unused for a year and a half. I have not sold it because no one here would buy it. The explanations are poor. If you want to know about thermodynamics, this is really not your book, I would rather recommend a Fisicochemistry book.

    As for properties tables and the such, well, the information you are really going to use is all summed up in the Chemical Engineer's Handbook, which is a must for any ChE, even if you're just a student (believe me, it has saved me a lot of times).

    2-0 out of 5 stars Old, outdated classic cant compete with modern thermo books!
    Although the book is totally introductory, it does *not* serve well to teach you something. Contents, concepts, structure, didactics, writing style and layout are more than obsolete: this text is the worst US-textbook on thermo ever (engineering thermo/chemical thermo/chemical engineering thermo), believe me! If you do not share my opinion, then it must be due to your absolute ignorance regarding this field or your pretended incompetence. This book is neither worth buying, owning, working with, nor looking at. Do not waste your time with this superficial and totally introductory, conveying-nothing text. The reason why this has been a best-seller from the late 1940's to the late 1980's (four decades!) is its age: it has been the *very* first, (c)1949, and thus, the most well-known, popular book on chem eng thermo. 'The eldest' is always being respected the most ("a classic"), but this does not mean that a best-selling classic is the best. Forget this outdated title of the (outdated?) McGraw-Hill Chemical Engineering Series and profit from the new fresh look and uptodate, modern approach taken by competitive book series (Wiley, Prentice Hall, Wiley-Interscience, and...McGraw-Hill ;). Smith's 6th edition book is an incredibly poor monograph! And by the way, it is rather a treatment of Engineering Thermodynamics than a treatment of Chemical (Engineering) Thermodynamics!! Since this obsolete classic cannot compete with the new titles, I give a 2-stars rating only. 50 years ago, Smith was the de facto standard intro text (and it remains an "Introducation" throughout the 800 pages!), now this has changed.
    Please also read my pos reviews of thermo books by Stanley I. Sandler 1999 (for advanced learners), Noel de Nevers 2002 (for beginners), and Stanley M. Walas 1985 (for workers). For a complete listing of relevant thermo titles have a look at table 8-1, pages 8.2-8.4, in Poling/Prausnitz/O'Connell 5th ed. c2001.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's complete, easy to read and comprehensive
    This book is written specifically for chemical engineers.It covers topics such as EOS for non-ideal multicomponent mixtures, chemical reaction thermodynamics and thermodynamics of solutions. I suggest it to everyone who have trouble with this course.

    They just keep adding to this book without removing or editing old material. The book has become a chaotic jumble of ideas of the various authors. There are other better books out there.

    Well, I think this book is very informative. Unfortunately it is very boring. But, that just goes with the subj. matter. The one thing that is extremely annoying is the unit conversions table. I think that it could had been placed at a more convinient location (inner front cover) instead of being on pg.651/789. On that note, I'd recomment photocopying the u.c.table when working on the problems. An introductory book to get you started is: Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes (richard m. felder).

    This is a great book that explains the "whys" as well as the hows". Lets face it... what's the point playing around with water chemitry if you have no idea what is behind all the effects.

    Why almost perfect??? It has no information on the benefits of a salt water pool/chlorinator. The more I've read elswhere, this seems to be a great way to go and I would have like to additional info on it in this book.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great for handyman pool owners, not just those in the trade
    I'm not in the pool maintenance trade but I've owned and maintained a pool, built two fish ponds and am currently having a pool, spa and koi pond built. Being an engineer by education, I was thirsting for in-depth information and wasn't disappointed. My pool plaster will be black and I was especially interested in Tamminen's very detailed opinions on the controversial topic of pool start-up after plastering and how to avoid mottling from plaster dust (a BIG problem with colored plaster.) But there's a wealth of other tips as well. For instance, I'm installing a sand filter, despite claims that it can't filter particles as small as those trapped by a DE filter, based on the comparative information in this book. A sand filter promises relatively low maintenance and my dark bottom doesn't require the same high clarity as a white plaster pool.

    I might have liked more info on the hazards of installing rocks in the water on a notched bond beam, under-edge fiber optic pool lights and ways to hide pool tiles. But those would more appropriately be in a book dedicated to pool design and construction rather than pool maintenance. Also, the discussion of fish pond design and maintenance was a bit too rudimentary to be of much value, although, like the rest of the book, the author wasn't shy about stating his opinions strongly. I liked that.

    All in all, this is a treasure trove of very practical information that should really prove its worth after my pool is completed.... ... Read more

    This book is written in a simple way and makes the subject easy to understand.a very good book. this book is used as the textbook for my nonlinear control course. But still i have to find some supplementary materials fron Khalil's book as there is not much information concerning about the backstepping

    4-0 out of 5 stars This is a well-constructed controls text.
    As a graduate student, I've been exposed to several books on control theory and Applied Nonlinear Control may be my favorite. This book does a good job at presenting control solutions for a rich class of systems. I specifically enjoyed learning about sliding control and on-line parameter estimation for adaptive contol. At times the book is difficult to follow for it frequently refers to specific equations and theorems of previous sections, but that is unavoidable considering the nature of the topic.
