Why use handbooks?

Handbooks are trusted and reliable sources of many kinds of information that practicing engineers need to have "on hand." Many have been around for generations and are now available online. 

Handbooks provide information such as: 

  • Material properties (elasticity, density, types of strength…) under various conditions

  • Introductory  materials

  • Data/Tables/Figures

  • References

  • Definitions

  • Formulae

Good sources for handbooks
