Publisher Comments:

<>In his substantial revision of Engineering Mechanics, R.C. Hibbeler empowers students to succeed in the whole learning experience.  Hibbeler achieves this by calling on his everyday classroom experience and his knowledge of how students learn inside and outside of lecture. 

 

In addition to over 50% new homework problems, the twelfth edition introduces the new elements of Conceptual Problems, Fundamental Problems and MasteringEngineering, the most technologically advanced online tutorial and homework system.

This package contains Engineering Mechanics: Statics, 12e, and an access code for MasteringEngineering with the Pearson eText for Engineering Mechanics: Statics, 12e.

Synopsis:

The Statics Study Pack was designed to help students improve their study skills. It consists of three study components—a chapter-by-chapter review, a free-body diagram workbook, and an access code for the Companion Website.

Synopsis:

KEY BENEFIT: R.C. Hibbeler’s text features a large variety of problem types from a broad range of engineering disciplines, stressing practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice, varying levels of difficulty, and problems that involve solution by computer. KEY TOPICS: Maintaining the hallmark Hibbeler focus on problem-solving, visualization, and accuracy, this edition includes over 50% new problems, and new elements of Conceptual Problems, Fundamental Problems and MasteringEngineering, the most technologically advanced online tutorial system. MARKET: Ideal for civil and mechanical engineering professionals.

About the Author

R.C. Hibbeler graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana with a BS in Civil Engineering (major in Structures) and an MS in Nuclear Engineering. He obtained his PhD in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics from Northwestern University.

Hibbeler’s professional experience includes postdoctoral work in reactor safety and analysis at Argonne National Laboratory, and structural work at Chicago Bridge and Iron, as well as Sargent and Lundy in Tucson. He has practiced engineering in Ohio, New York, and Louisiana.

Hibbeler currently teaches at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette. In the past he has taught at the University of Illinois at Urbana, Youngstown State University, Illinois Institute of Technology, and Union College.

I have read an edition of Statics written by R.C.Hibbeler it is awesome book. Regarding the theory i haven't seen any other book that gives clear meanings and problems to that much extent. REading it has always been pleasure and to solve problems. I can't define what precious book it's
