Description

Engineering Mechanics provides a comprehensive coverage for the Mechanical Engineering students and Practicing Engineers. With the purpose of providing a smooth transition from high school mathematics to Engineering Mechanics, a separate dedicated chapter on Vector Algebra has been introduced at the beginning of this book. The subject matter has been presented with essential and coherent theoretical background. It also highlights the applications of the theory learnt through a wide number of worked-out Solved Examples arranged in increasingly difficult level. About the Author Dr. Abhijit Chanda is currently a Professor of Mechanical Engineering department, Jadavpur University, Kolkata. Dr. Chanda has over 15 years of teaching experience. He co-authored a book on Strength of Materials published by Wiley India. His research interests are in the fields of Material Science, Bio-Materials, Bio Engineering and related topics. Dr. Debabrata Nag is currently an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering department, Jadavpur University. Dr. Nag has more than 10 years of industrial and 15 years of teaching experience. He authored a book on Mechanical Vibration and co-authored a book on Strength of Materials both published by Wiley India.
