Engineering Mechanics

In this modern age, the word ‘science’ has got
different meanings for different people. An ordinary
man takes it as ‘something’ beyond his understanding,
whereas others may take it as ‘mysteries of research’
which are understood only by a few persons

‘something’ which solves our day to day manufacturing
and quality control problems, so that the nation’s
economic prosperity keeps on improving.
In fact, ‘science’ may be defined as the growth
of ideas through observation and experimentation. In
