This book equips the students with the basic knowledge of certain facets of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics as needed by them in the beginning of their engineering education. The book is primarily tailored to conform to the first-year B.Tech syllabus of Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU). It will be useful for the students in other universities too. The first part of the book discusses the fundamentals of civil engineering and the characteristics of some civil structures, such as buildings, roads, bridges, and dams. The second part deals with the topics of engineering mechanics that help in finding the solutions to problems of engineering. It deals with the systems of forces to which rigid bodies are subjected, centroids of plane figures, moment of inertia of some important geometrical figures, and the laws of friction. Worked-out examples, practice problems, and objective-type questions in each chapter are designed to reinforce the learning of the subject matter.
