DESCRIPTION

An Introduction to Mechanical Engineering is an essential text for all first-year undergraduate students as well as those studying for foundation degrees and HNDs. The text gives a thorough grounding in the following core engineering topics: thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, dynamics, electricals and electronics, and materials science. As well as mechanical engineers, the text will be highly relevant to civil, automotive, aeronautical/aerospace and general engineering students. The text is written by an experienced team of first-year lecturers at the internationally renowned University of Nottingham. The material in this book has full student and lecturer support on an accompanying website at http://cw.tandf.co.uk/mechanicalengineering/, which includes: * worked examples of exam-style questions * multiple-choice self-assessment * revision guides.
