There are scores of books written by master minds on the subject; yet this book is perhaps the first book of its kind in so far as the following unique features of it are concerned.
(i) Major portion ofthe book incorporates the Nationalised Metric Units with as far as possible LS.L recommended technical abbreviations and with ajudicious balance offoot-poundsecond units in the chapters on Gears, Inertia Analysis in Machines, Governor, Balancing, Mechanical Vibrations. Gyroscopes which are prescribed for senior years and also for examinations of the professional institutions where the change-over to Metric units at this stage is not complete.
(ii) The long cherished hope of the student community has been fulfilled by not only providing a profusion of schematic and free body diagrams drawn to generous scales with enough information given on the diagram itself, but all the graphical solutions of numerous solved numerical problems are reproduced to scales measurable from the book and such scales of graphical solutions have been given in the book itself. Author and the Compiler consider this feature as an added asset in view of the fact that it facilitates checking each step in the graphical solutions, which otherwise is difficult.
