MASTER UNIVERSAL ENGINEERING PROBLEM-SOLVING TECHNIQUES

Advance your engineering skills and become a capable, confident problem solver by learning the wide array of tools, processes, and tactics employed in the field.

Engineering Problem-Solving 101: Time-Tested and Timeless Techniques contains more than 50 systematic approaches spanning all disciplines, logically organized into mathematical, physical/mechanical, visual, and conceptual categories. Strategies are reinforced with practical reference tables, technical illustrations, interesting photographs, and real-world examples.

Inside, you'll find:

50+ proven problem-solving methods

Illustrative examples from all engineering disciplines

Photos, illustrations, and figures that complement the material covered

Detailed tables that summarize concepts and provide useful data in a convenient format
