Engineering Mechanics

This is a comprehensive book which caters to the needs of Engineering Mechanics course of the undergraduate students. It thoroughly deals with the basic laws of mechanics combined with the emphasis on the use of the correct free-body diagrams. Standard notations have been used. It is a balanced mix of theory and well graded solved examples. Problems have been solved systematically by using the correct approach. New approach of applying 'Checks' has been introduced to ascertain correctness of the solution on Trusses. The book thoroughly deals with both, Statics and Dynamics branches of Mechanics. Sufficient numbers of chapters have been included for students and teachers of various universities. The book is extremely useful for the competitive professional examinations such as GATE, IAS, IES, PCSs of all States, GRE, AMIE, etc.
