Table of Contents
Every engineering student needs to possess the fundamental understanding of the concepts of civil and mechanical engineering. This textbook has been designed to provide students with a strong foundation in both the subjects. This book has been written in a simple and comprehensive manner to enable students to derive maximum understanding.
It has been carefully designed to conform to the common syllabus prescribed by all Anna Universities and other universities and autonomous colleges. This book is divided into two parts: 1.Basic Civil Engineering and 2. Basic Mechanical Engineering.
The portion covering Basic Civil Engineering discusses several fundamental concepts related to the field such as surveying, leveling, determination of areas, stones, bricks, mortar, cement, concrete, steel, building components and structures, brick masonry, stone masonry, beams, columns, lintels, roofs, flooring, plastering, mechanics, bridges, dams and basics of interior design and landscaping.
On the other hand, the portion covering Basic Mechanical Engineering delves into concepts such as energy resources, power plants engineering, turbines, pumps, internal combustion engines and refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. It also provides an introduction to mechanisms and basics of manufacturing and production technology.
The pedagogical features presented in the book include clearly drawn and neatly labeled illustrations, tabular presentation of crucial data and end-of-chapter exercises along with their answers. All these features supplement the text and provide students with a well-rounded coverage of the subject.
