I'm a physics student with a very strong background in math. Most of my courses up to this point have been highly theoretical, and include your standard advanced courses in QM, EM, and thermal - with organic, inorganic, analytical, and biological chemistry. The applications however, have been nonexistant, so I'd like to pick up a few engineering books to see some of this theory in action. I am looking for standard books that teach the theoretical and forumlaic aspects of engineering, particularly in mechanic and chemical. I seen my friends "engineering mechanics" text and they were doing things with rotational tensors and stress/strain formulas I have never seen in my classical mechanics class. Heat transfer also sounds like an interesting subject, this was very briefly covered in thermal. Lastly, how are the schaums guides for this purpose? Thank you in advance.
