Engineering: general

Designed for the first-year undergraduate students of all engineering disciplines, this well-written textbook presents a comprehensive coverage of the fundamental concepts, principles and applications of engineering mechanics in an easy-to-comprehend manner. The book presents an in-depth analysis of various branches of engineering mechanics and the units of measurements. It discusses the system of forces, its characteristics and graphical representation along with composition of coplanar concurrent/non-concurrent forces in a simple but effective style. Using a self-instructive student-friendly approach, the book describes properties of surfaces which cover centre of gravity and moment of inertia. Separate chapters are devoted to a thorough study of friction, kinematics and kinetics of particles. Finally, this book explains the elements of rigid body dynamics. KEY FEATURES : Includes a number of self-explanatory, graded and worked-out examples for practice. Incorporates review and summary, key terms and review questions at the end of each chapter to clarify the concepts. Presents step-by-step build-up of topics with side-by-side free body diagrams. Contains problems for practice at the end of each chapter to consolidate learning.
