CRC Handbook of Tables for Applied Engineering Science
New tables in this edition cover lasers, radiation, cryogenics, ultra-sonics, semi-conductors, high-vacuum techniques, eutectic alloys, and organic and inorganic surface coating. Another major addition is expansion of the sections on engineering materials and compos-ites, with detailed indexing by name, class and usage. The special Index of Properties allows ready comparisons with respect to single property, whether physical, chemical, electrical, radiant, mechani-cal, or thermal. The user of this book is assisted by a comprehensive index, by cross references and by numerically keyed subject headings at the top of each page. Each table is self-explanatory, with units, abbreviations, and symbols clearly defined and tabular material subdivided for easy reading.

I was given a copy of this handbook as an award back in 1973 by Hughes Aircraft Company, that's 40 years ago. At the time I viewed it as the greatest collection of engineering data one never knew one needed to know. It is a compendium of data on all sorts of esoteric subjects not easily found in the normal literature. Subjects run from properties of superheated steam to "Expected Accuracy of Various Machining Processes." For an engineer, it makes interesting reading.
Today, with the Internet, it doesn't get pulled off the shelf as often as it once did, but it sure came in handy tonight when I needed empirical data on the sound attenuation of building materials.
