About the Book
"A Textbook of Engineering Mechanics" has been written especially for the students of B.E./B.Tech. of Himachal Pradesh Technical University (Hamirpur). It represents a comprehensive study of important topics of Engineering Mechanics for undergraduate students of Engineering in a brief, clear and lucid manner
Written strictly according to the new syllabus (BE-105) effective from 2012-2013 session.
The topics are so selected that the book covers almost every aspect of Mechanics.
Large number of solved examples, based on SI system of units are given in each chapter, article-wise.
A set of questions of unsolved problems as exercises are given in each chapter for a better comprehension of each topic
