Mechanical engineering

The striking features of this text-book is that all the graphical representation of the test results by way of graphs and maps, to explain or analyse and synthesise the performance, are not only qualitative but quantitative enabling the reader to read off a value from them as typical one and use in a practical manner. The author has interacted with curriculum development processes in the country and made the book to cater to the needs of standard accredited teaching universities, institutions and also Institution of Engineers, India examinations, besides the practising engineer. SI units have been consistently used, throughout the text-book and many more typical worked out problems have been added. Another special feature is the addition of objective type of questions with their answers to enable a student to comprehend the subject better.
