Are there any good engineering mathematics books?

Section I – Power Boilers
This Section provides requirements for all methods of construction of power, electric, and miniature boilers; high temperature water boilers used in stationary service; and power boilers used in locomotive, portable, and traction service. Rules pertaining to use of the V, A, M, PP, S and E Code symbol stamps are also included.
The National Transportation Safety Board is expected to issue a ruling late Friday on the probable causes and contributing factors of the Aug. 1, 2007, I-35W bridge collapse in Minneapolis that killed 13 people and injured 145. Their findings will be released formally at the conclusion of a two-day public board meeting that opened Thursday in Washington.
During Thursday's testimony, federal investigators said they had discovered a major design flaw that dated to the bridge's original design in the mid-'60s -- the steel gusset plates that held beams together were only half the required thickness. The bridge was in the midst of repairs at the time of the collapse. Equipment and supplies at one point of excessive weight in the center span caused weak plates to give out, which pulled down the adjacent sections in turn.
The NTSB has been investigating the catastrophic failure of the eight-lane, 1,907-foot-long highway bridge over the Mississippi River over the past 15 months since the collapse. The board made the two-day meeting available via a live webcast, which is being archived for later viewing online. The NTSB planned to release a summary of their final report shortly after the conclusion of the meeting. The entire report will be released in "several weeks," according to the NTSB.
I have 3 different copies of Machinery's handbook and use them almost every day.
In 1995, the National Academy of Engineering initiated the Frontiers of Engineering Program, which brings together about 100 young engineering leaders at annual symposia to learn about cutting-edge research and technical work in a variety of engineering fields. The 2009 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium was held at The National Academies' Arnold O. and Mabel Beckman Center on September 10-12. Speakers were asked to prepare extended summaries of their presentations, which are reprinted in this volume. The intent of this book is to convey the excitement of this unique meeting and to highlight cutting-edge developments in engineering research and technical work.
