About the Authors
  • This comprehensive and self-contained textbook will help students in acquiring an understanding of fundamental concepts and applications of engineering mechanics. With basic prior knowledge, the readers are guided through important concepts of engineering mechanics such as free body diagrams, principles of the transmissibility of forces, Coulomb's law of friction, analysis of forces in members of truss and rectilinear motion in horizontal direction. Important theorems including Lami's theorem, Varignon's theorem, parallel axis theorem and perpendicular axis theorem are discussed in a step-by-step manner for better clarity. Applications of ladder friction, wedge friction, screw friction and belt friction are discussed in detail. The textbook is primarily written for undergraduate engineering students in India. Numerous theoretical questions, unsolved numerical problems and solved problems are included throughout the text to develop a clear understanding of the key principles of engineering mechanics. This text is the ideal resource for first year engineering undergraduates taking an introductory, single-semester course in engineering mechanics.

    • Covers fundamental principles in simple language and analyses various methods/alternatives for solving problems
    • A step-by-step methodology is adopted to solve the numerical problems
    • More than 400 solved examples will help students prepare for competitive examinations including Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) and Indian Engineering Services (IES)
    • Discusses important topics including free vibration, wedge friction, ladder friction and belt friction with the help of solved problems
