For control and stress... I am a 2nd year mech eng student. Thanks
I believe you are talking about two different concepts in ME: Controls, and Stresses.
A few good book for stresses are:
Beginning Stress Analysis: "Mechanics of Materials" by Hibbler
More in-depth knowledge of stress analysis, including fatigue and creep analysis (plus an intro to fracture mechanics):
Try "Machine Design" by Robert Norton
I am more of a machine design person and I have not yet found a controls book that makes me like the subject as a whole. So I don't have any good books about controls that I can recommend.
Hope this helps
I def agree with the Hibbeler recommendation, but you want the 8th edition here: http://www.amazon.com/Mechanics-Materials-Edition-Russell-Hibbeler/dp/0136022308/ref=dp_ob_title_bk.
Also by Hibbeler, but slightly more technical: http://www.amazon.com/Engineering-Mechanics-Dynamics-13th-Edition/dp/0132911272/ref=pd_sim_b_2
Mechanics of Solids by crandall Dahl & Lardner is a very good book for learning basic concepts of Stress ,Strain in solids
Since you are a 2nd yeear student, it'll be the best suggestion.
I can't help on the controls but for stress in machine design:
Many engineers of my generation studied machine design using a book written by Shigley (and Mitchel or Miche)
and I still refer to it regularly or a later edition i picked up used. (be sure to get a recent edition because a fatigue course I took in 2005 taught me that research has shown that 24 years ago the fatigue analysis calculations were a bit wrong)
this is now what is available and I am planning on buying it: "Shigley's Mechanical Engineering Design"
For more indepth study I recomend the asm Handbooks, probably available at the engineering library.
"feedback control of dynamic systems" :
Feedback Control of Dynamics Systems (Addison-Wesley series in electrical engineering)
Gene F. Franklin, J. David Powell, Abbas Emami-Naeini
Bookseller: Blue Cloud Books
(Phoenix, AZ, U.S.A.)

Digital Control of Dynamic Systems

these were what I used in school. I think they are to controls what shigley is to mechanics
