New sections in this major update of the original text include an introduction to dimensional analysis, material on mechatronics, and a new chapter on precision agriculture. The book gives practical discussions of functional components as well as the underlying theory. It covers equipment, components, and testing, with example problems and unsolved practice problems. A companion CD-Rom has also been added to the new edition. The CD-Rom includes simulation problems that use an engine simulator.

Great to see that books can still be purchased for a reasonable price. This book is being used for research purposes in an office and it makes for a great resource.
Lot's of frustrating mistakes

Since 4 weeks I have to work with this book. It has so many mistakes and sometimes it is written to complicated. Especially the mistakes in the many examples are frustrating. This book really needs a big revision!
