An Introduction to Mechanical Engineering

Engineering is not merely knowing and being knowledgeable, like a walking encyclopaedia; engineering is not merely analysis; engineering is not merely the possession of the capacity to get elegant solutions to non-existent engineering problems; engineering is practicing the art of the organized forcing of technological change.

Dean Gordon Brown
This book is written for undergraduate engineers and those who teach them. It  contains concise chapters on solid mechanics, materials, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, electronics and dynamics, which provide grounding in the fundamentals of mechanical engineering science.An introduction to mathematics is  
covered in the companion publication

An Introduction to Mathematics for Engineers by Stephen Lee, also published by Hodder
The material in this book is supported by an accompanying website:
The authors have over 120 years' experience of teaching undergraduate engineers betweenthem, mostly, but not exclusively, at the University of Nottingham.The material contained within this textbook has been derived from lecture notes, research findings and personal experience from within the lecture theatre and tutorial sessions.

We gratefully acknowledge the support, encouragement and occasional gentle prod from Stephen Halder and Gemma Parsons at Hodder Education, without whom this book would still be a figment of our collected imaginations. Dedicated to past, present and future engineering students at the University of Nottingham.
