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.
