Attention all Mechies, this thread vies to be a comprehensive compilation of all the books required for undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering. I have tried to include all the good books. In case, there is one which i have left out, please let me know.
The Indian authors' names are mentioned above the broken line and the foreign authors' names below them.

P.S.: Special thanks to our CE members Issue, Chitti and CE Designer. Their previous discussions in the section helped me put this list together.
All credits go to the person whose brainchild it is - The_Big_K.

@zaveri • 27 Apr, 2012 • 1 like Now here are a couple of books, which are more than self-sufficient. buy them and you won't find the need to refer another book on the same subject:

DESIGN OF MACHINE COMPONENTS by MICHAEL ORTHWEIN

AUTOMECHANICS by CROUSE AND ANGLIN
@zaveri • 16 Jul, 2012 In case you have selected "Design of jigs and fixtures" as an elective. then use "Tool design" by DONALDSON
@Prasenjit Saha • 02 Aug, 2012 Download link pls.-"Machine Design - An Integrated Approach by Norton"
@Prasenjit Saha • 02 Aug, 2012 Download link pls.-"Manual of engineering drawing - Simmons & Maguire"
@Sudarshan R • 30 Jun, 2014 Pls upload the download link for Production Engineering - P C Sharma. needed badly😉
@Kedar Malwadkar • 02 Aug, 2014 These books are'nt free guys.
We don't promote piracy here on CE!
@Kedar Malwadkar • 02 Aug, 2014 The knowledge you get through these books is surely much more worth than what prices suggest. 😉😉
@Santhosh M • 08 Aug, 2014 Thanks a lot... I think this wil be very useful....

how can i download kirpal singh automobile text
@priyanka phadatare • 16 Apr, 2015 plz give the name of book for tool engineering sub.
specially related to jigs & fixtures
@mannu dhadse • 21 Jul, 2015 how to download
@Ankita Katdare • 18 Sep, 2015 I recommend everyone to go to the book store and buy the hard copy of the book. Chances of a student reading curriculum related ebook (when everything else is demanding their attention) are really bleak.
By investing in a hard copy of the book, you are investing in your own studies and hence the future. If you don't have the money to buy the book at its MRP, go for a second-hand book. There are tons of websites in India that let you buy second hand books and chances are that your city too has a place where they sell used-books.

This is a great list put together by @ironman and @zaveri Do buy these books and read them. 👍
@Aritra Dawn • 21 Sep, 2015 Automobile Engg. by Domkundwar, Ballaney, Rajput or Kirpal Singh...what do u suggest?
@AJAY JAIN • 18 Feb, 2016 I recommended you to keep hard copy of books with you . Even you can buy second hand books to save money and now a days they are available online easily which also save your time.I know a site which is mainly for second hand engineering books .
here is the link
www.booklo.co.in
Best service .
@francohandel • 27 Feb, 2016 Pls i need a book or works on hybrid cars because i am currently about to start one as a project
@Muhammad Bilal • 20 Jan, 2020
