This book covers the syllabuses in Applied Mechanics for all classes of the Marine Engineers' Certificates of Competency of the Department of Transport. It will also be useful to students on BTEC and SCOTVEC engineering courses. Basic principles are dealt with beginning at a fairly elementary stage. Each chapter has fully worked examples interwoven into the text, test examples are set at the end of each chapter, and some typical exam questions are included. The prefix 'f' is used to indicate those parts of the text, and some test examples, which are of Class 1 standard.
