This book equips the students with basic knowledge of certain facets of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics as needed by them in the beginning of their engineering education. The book is primarily tailored to conform to the first-year B. It is a basic undergraduate textbook useful for students of all branches of engineering not only under VTU but also for other universities. The text, now in its Second Edition, is thoroughly revised and updated. Divided into five modules, the book spreads over 13 chapters. The first module discusses about Elements of Civil Engineering and the related engineering structures, such as buildings, roads, bridges, and dams as well as basic concepts of Engineering Mechanics. The second and third modules deal with the application of basic concepts of Engineering Mechanics in analyzing the coplanar force systems.
