Summary: For one/two-semester, undergraduate-level courses in Statics and Strengths of Materials, Strength of Materials, and Engineering Mechanics in the disciplines of Mechanical Engineering Technology. Edition/Copyright: 4TH 04
Focusing on the fundamentals of material statics and strength, this text presents a non-Calculus-based, elementary, analytical, and practical approach, with rigorous, comprehensive example problems that follow the explanation of theory and very complete homework pr ...show moreoblems that allow students to practice the material. The goal of the text is to provide students with the necessary mechanics background for more advanced and specialized areas of study in the many fields of engineering technology--e.g., civil, mechanical, construction, architectural, industrial, and manufacturing.
- NEW--Contains 10-15% new and edited problems.
- Intermingles S1 and US Customary System homework problems.
- Problem-oriented text--Furnishes solutions to example problems using a rigorous, complete step-by-step method.
- Helps students develop a logical and systematic approach to problem-solving.
- Varied fields of engineering technology--Presents text and problems applicable to civil, construction, mechanical, industrial, architectural, and manufacturing fields.
- Provides students and instructors with a varied choice of applications.
- Carefully thought-out homework problems--Presented in order of difficulty and organized by section at the end of each chapter.
- Gives instructors an excellent choice of varied problems for assignment.
- Answers to Selected Problems--Appear in the back of the text.
- Gives students immediate feedback as to the correctness of their solutions.
- Computer homework problems--Furnished in most chapters.
- Provides students that have some knowledge of computer usage with the opportunity to practice solving technical problems, thus reinforcing concepts.
- U.S. Customary System and Metric System.
- Provides students with the opportunity to become familiar with the SI Unit System.
- Brief summaries--Furnished at the end of each chapter.
- Gives students a quick review of the major elements in each chapter, aiding in study for exams.
- Broad range of topics--Covers subjects usually not included in a one-semester Statics and Strengths of Materials course <040>i.e.: belt friction, stress concentration, moment-area theorems, elastic-inelastic behavior, etc.<041>
- Enables instructors greater freedom when teaching their course.
- Self-contained text--Designed with analysis aids furnished in an appendix section using both U.S. Customary and SI data.
- Provides students with sufficient data so that the purchase of additional reference works are unnecessary.
- Well-illustrated text material--Contains approximately 450 line drawings.
- Gives students excellent visual material to support the text.
- Approximately 1,000 end-of-chapter problems.
- Enables students to practice their skills at problem-solving.
