    Salient Features

    • It is a product of experience gained over many years in teaching the subject, refined with feed back from the students.
    • The material is class tested, as stated above
    • It explains the Theory in simple, lucid language with clear diagrams
    • Theory studied is immediately reinforced by working out large number of problems
    • At the end of each chapter, several theory questions and numerical problems from University examinations are provided for exercise
    • Problems are solved using popular engineering software ‘Mathcad’. Its use in quick and accurate calculations, graphing and analysis, solving simultaneous equations, trial and error solutions, ‘what if’ type of analysis etc. are demonstrated. Appropriate comments are provided in the course of Mathcad solutions to provide clarity and also to ensure that those who do not use this software do not suffer any disadvantage while using this book.
