Designed for the core course on Workshop Practice offered to all first-year diploma and degree level students of engineering, this book presents clear and concise explanation of the basic principles of manufacturing processes and equips students with overall knowledge of engineering materials, tools and equipment commonly used in the engineering field. The book describes the general principles of different workshop processes such as primary and secondary shaping processes, metal joining methods, surface finishing and heat treatment. The workshop processes covered also include the hand-working processes such as benchwork, fitting, arc welding, sheet metal work, carpentry, blacksmithy and foundry. It also explains the importance of safety measures to be followed in workshop processes and details the procedure of writing the records of the practices. The tools and equipment used in each hand-working process are enumerated before elaborating the process. Finally, the book discusses the machining processes such as turning operations, the cutting tools and the tools used for measuring and marking, and explains the working principle of Engine Lathe. An appendix for advanced level practice and assessment of work has also been included. New to This Edition : A separate chapter on Plumbing as per the revised syllabus of Indian Universities Method for sketching isometric single line piping layout Neatly-drawn illustrations and examples on Plumbing Key Features : Follows the International Standard Organization (ISO) code of practice for drawings. Includes a large number of illustrations to explain the methods and processes discussed. Contains chapter-end questions for viva voce test and exercises for making models.
This book provides a comprehensive and wide-ranging introduction to the fundamental principles of mechanical engineering in a distinct and clear manner. The book is intended for a core introductory course in the area of foundations and applications of mechanical engineering, prescribed for the first-year students of all disciplines of engineering. The book develops an intuitive understanding of the basic principles of thermodynamics as well as of the principles governing the conversion of heat into energy. Numerous illustrative examples are provided to fortify these concepts throughout. The book gives the students a feel for how thermodynamics is applied in engineering practice in the areas of heat engines, steam boilers, internal combustion engines, refrigeration and air conditioning, and to devices such as turbines, pumps and compressors. The book also provides a basic understanding of mechanical design, illustrating the principles through a discussion of devices designed for the transmission of motion and power such as couplings, clutches and brakes. No book on basic mechanical engineering is complete without an introduction to materials science. The text covers the treatment of the common engineering materials, highlighting their properties and applications. Finally, the role of lubrication and lubricants in reducing the wear and tear of parts in mechanical systems, is lucidly explained in the concluding chapter. The text features several fully worked-out examples, a fairly large number of numerical problems with answers, end-of-chapter review questions and multiple choice questions, which all enhance the value of the text to the students. Besides the students studying for an engineering degree, this book is also suitable for study by the students of AMIE and the students of diploma level courses.
