The book starts with the law of forces, free-body diagrams, basic information on materials strength including stresses and strains. It further discusses principles of transmission of power and elementary designs of gears, spring, etc. This part concludes with mechanical vibrations, — their importance, types, isolation and critical speed. The second part, Thermal Engineering, deals with basics and laws of thermodynamics; pure substances and their properties. It further includes laws of heat transfer, insulation, and heat exchanges. This part concludes with a detailed discussion on refrigeration and air conditioning.
