This series of three volumes, 'Basic Engineering Mechanics Explained' aims to explain in a reader-friendly way, the essential principles of basic mechanics as used in engineering.

It attempts to provide clarity, motivation and relevance, for any reader who wants to understand the principles of mechanics and be able to apply them to practical situations. These books should be found useful by anyone studying, teaching or using the science of mechanics.

It covers most, if not all of the topics that are found in typical first-year courses in mechanics worldwide, and some of those topics found in courses on basic machine dynamics.

These volumes contain:

Original worked examples on every aspect of the content Over 420 original exercises with answers, illustrative of the practical applications of mechanics in a variety of settings Sets of true/false questions and tutorial questions suitable for tackling in groups Outlines of several well-tried practical design-and-build projects and experiments Brief mentions of certain colourful historical developments in ideas about mechanics 1000 illustrations, diagrams and line drawings, of which more than 90% are original.

Gregory Pastoll has a BSc in Mechanical Engineering from the University of the Witwatersrand and a PhD in Higher Education from the University of Cape Town. After a short stint in industry, he spent altogether 14 years as a lecturer in basic mechanical engineering, and for much of that time was course co-ordinator for Mechanics 1 and Mechanics 2 at the Cape Technikon, and at the Peninsula University of Technology. He ran mechanics labs and design-and-build projects as part of his courses in mechanics. He also spent 14 years as a consultant on university teaching methods at the Teaching Methods Unit at the University of Cape Town.
