No matter how far reaching the research of scientists or engineers extends in developing new ideas and concepts, nothing can be built or manufactured without drawings. Completely revised and updated, Engineering Graphics, Second Edition explains the principles and construction of engineering drawing in a clear, concise, and straightforward style. This allows students from different areas of engineering to understand engineering drawings with minimum effort. The book gives students a complete understanding of technical drawing - the basic working tool all engineers must use.
See what's new in the Second Edition: § Chapter on Intersection of Surfaces § More than 200 exercises § 100 solved problems § Over 300 illustrations with detailed step-by-step constructional procedure

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
