INTRODUCTION OF ENGINEERING MECHANICS :
In any field the importance of a through knowledge of fundamentals can’t be over emphasised. fundamentals have always been stressed in the learning of new skills. similerly,the mechanics branch of the science which deals with the forces and their effect on bodies which they act is founded on basics concepts and forms the ground work for further study in the design and anaiysis of machines and structures. mechanics can divided into two parts :MACHINE DRAWING
(i) STATICS : which relates to the bodies at the rest.INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE
(II) dYNAMICS : Which deals with bodies in motion.
in mechanics the term strength of materials refers to the ability of the individual parts of a machine or structure to resist loads. it also permits the determination of dimensions yo ensure sufficient strength of the various parts. dynamics may be futher into two groups :STRENGTH OF MATERIALS
