FEM, CFD and CAD Books to Read

It is only a matter of time until a decent mechanical engineering book comes in handy. And it makes no difference whether you are a first-year mechanical engineering student or a seasoned specialist in the subject. Competent engineers rely on trustworthy books to make rapid and authoritative decisions.

Mechanical engineering involves the study of a wide range of ideas and theories, including heat, machines, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, computer-aided design, and engineering mechanics, as well as skill-oriented topics like business, management, and programming. However, a student needs to have a few key reference books in order to cover the vast array of concepts included in the Mechanical Engineering syllabus offered in BSc or B. Tech degree in this domain.

These mechanical engineering books are appropriate for academic as well as competitive examinations. However, with so many engineering books on the market, selecting the correct one can be difficult. More and more books are added each year, with no signs of slowing. This post will save you time and provide you with a selection of useful resources to have on your bookshelf. 

In this informative blog, we have listed quite a few books recommended by AICTE that you should read if you are studying Mechanical Engineering or getting ready for competitive examinations in this field.
