Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This fifth edition of Applied Statics and Strength of Materials presents a noncalculus based elementary, analytical and practical approach to the principles and physical concepts of statics and strength of materials. The book focuses on the mastery of basic principles. It features a rigorous, comprehensive stepbystep problemsolving approach; an abundance of workedout examples and homework problems; and a focus on principles and applications for many fields of engineering technology.
Features of this text include:
Synopsis:Focusing on the fundamentals of material statics and strength, Applied Statics and Strength of Materials, Fifth Edition presents a nonCalculusbased, elementary, analytical, and practical approach, with rigorous, comprehensive example problems that follow the explanation of theory and very complete homework problems that allow trainees to practice the material. The goal of the book is to provide readers with the necessary mechanics background for more advanced and specialized areas of study in the many fields of engineering technology — for example, civil, mechanical, construction, architectural, industrial, and manufacturing.
