Lectures on Engineering Mechanics: Statics and Dynamics is suitable for Bachelor's level education at schools of engineering with an academic profile. It gives a concise and formal account of the theoretical framework of elementary Engineering Mechanics.

A distinguishing feature of this textbook is that its content is consistently structured into postulates, definitions and theorems, with rigorous derivations. The reader finds support in a wealth of illustrations and a cross-reference for each deduction. This textbook underscores the importance of properly drawn free-body diagrams to enhance the problem-solving skills of students.

There is a black/white print version (ISBN 978-91-981287-3-4) and a color print version (ISBN 978-91-981287-4-1) of this textbook.
