    An Introduction to Mechanical Engineering: Part 2 is an essential text for all second-year undergraduate students as well as those studying foundation degrees and HNDs. The text provides thorough coverage of the following core engineering topics:

    1. Fluid dynamics
    2. Thermodynamics
    3. Solid mechanics
    4. Control theory and techniques
    5. Mechanical power, loads and transmissions
    6. Structural vibration

    As well as mechanical engineers, the text will be highly relevant to automotive, aeronautical/aerospace and general engineering students.

    The material in this book has full student and lecturer support on an accompanying website at http://cw.tandf.co.uk/mechanicalengineering/, which includes:

    • worked solutions for exam-style questions
    • multiple-choice self-assessment
    • revision material

    The text is written by an experienced team of lecturers at the internationally renowned University of Nottingham.
