Summary
This reference defines the principle and most commonly used terms found in engineering documents and drawings across multiple disciplines and explains them in plain, unambiguous English. Concise Dictionary of Engineering: A Guide to the Language of Engineering also distinguishes how some terms take on different meanings in different engineering contexts—critical knowledge when working on collaborative projects with diverse elements and colleagues. Based on an edition developed for researchers and technicians at Lockheed Martin, each entry in this volume is written in clear, everyday English without confusing jargon and “techno-speak.” The book is ideal for students, professional engineers, industrial personnel, managers, and anyone else who requires a solid understanding of the language of engineers. This dictionary also: · Clarifies technical terms often intermixed or misused · Spans a range of engineering disciplines, including mechanical, electrical, materials, and civil · Provides in one source a reference compiled from the most-authoritative sources, including technical literature, military and industrial handbooks, commercial specifications, and standards documents · Serves as a handy reference for engineers in the field and as a study guide for the PE exam
