Descriptive Geometry – Chahly

In this post, we will see the book Descriptive Geometry by A. T. Chahly.

About the book

Descriptive Geometry and Engineering Drawing are among the first engineering subjects taught at institutions of higher education. These subjects are essential if the students are to obtain a fundamental knowledge of the design and construction of machines and mechanisms.
Descriptive geometry, as a specific field of knowledge, like many others, arose and developed as a direct result of man’s creative labour.
Descriptive geometry is the theoretical foundation of engineering drawing which, in turn, is the preparatory graphical course required for studying all general engineering and special subjects.
Descriptive geometry develops the capacity for imagining objects in space which is essential for reading drawings.
Every engineer must have a good knowledge of the techniques used to represent objects by drawings. He must, so to say, be able to think in three dimensions. Creative engineering without this ability is quite impossible.
In this book descriptive geometry is dealt with step by step. Numerous examples are given to illustrate all theoretical aspects outlined and the methods of constructing projections.

Translated from the Russian by A. E. Tchernukhin and Th. Botting

The book was published by The Higher School Publishing House in 1968.
