## Engineering Mechanics: Statics and dynamicsThis edition of the highly respected and well-known book for Engineering Mechanics focuses on developing a solid understanding of basic principles rather than rote learning of specific methodologies. It covers fundamental principles instead of " cookbook" problem-solving, and has been refined to make it more readable. It includes over 500 new problems rigorously checked for accuracy. Statics topics covered include fundamentals of mechanics, elements of vector algebra, important vector quantities, equivalent force systems, equations of equilibrium, introduction to structural mechanics, friction forces, properties of surfaces, moments and products of inertia, and methods of virtual work and stationary potential energy. Dynamics topics include kinematics of a particle, particle dynamics, energy methods for particles, methods of momentum for particles, kinematics of rigid bodies, kinetics of plane motion of rigid bodies, energy and impulse-momentum methods for rigid bodies, dynamics of general rigid-body motion, and vibrations. |

The book on Engineering Mechanics by I H Sharma is an excellent book. It was an eye opener for me in IIT Kharagpur where I came across this book for the first time in my first year B.Tech.A true learner needs patience to learn the real concepts of Mechanics with the help of this book. This book is a good companion of mine even till today.
