This book gives a sufficient grounding in mechanics for engineers to tackle a significant range of problems encountered in the design and specification of simple structures and machines. It also provides an excellent background for students wishing to progress to more advanced studies in three-dimensional mechanics.

A basic treatment of mechanics for students of mechanical engineering and other engineering disciplines
Detailed consideration is dedicated to plane motion
Typical applications considered are power preses, I.C. engine and switchgear mechanisms, gear boxes and robots.
