FE Mechanical Practice Problems
FE Mechanical Practice Problems contains more than 460 multiple-choice problems that will reinforce knowledge of topics covered on the NCEES Mechanical FE exam. These problems are designed to be solved in three minutes or less to demonstrate the format and difficulty of the exam, and to help candidates focus on individual engineering concepts. Like the exam, problems are grouped by engineering topic. Solutions are clear, complete and easy to follow. Step-by-step calculations use equations and nomenclature from the NCEES FE Reference Handbook to help increase familiarity with the reference. Units are meticulously identified and rigorously carried through in all calculations. This book can be used by itself for independent problem-solving practice, or it may be used in conjunction with the FE Mechanical Review Manual. This book follows the FE Mechanical Review Manual in chapter sequence, nomenclature, terminology and methodology so readers can easily find clear explanations of topics where more support is required. Exam topics covered include computational tools; dynamics, kinematics and vibrations; electricity and magnetism; engineering economics; ethics and professional practice; fluid mechanics; heat transfer; material properties and processing; mathematics; materials; measurement, instrumentation and controls; mechanical design and analysis; probability and statistics; statics; thermodynamics.
