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 to 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. An accompanying website will provide resources for students and tutors, including worked examples of exam style questions, multiple choice self assessment, and revision guides.
