Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This fifth edition of Applied Statics and Strength of Materials presents a non-calculus 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 step-by-step problem-solving approach; an abundance of worked-out examples and homework problems; and a focus on principles and applications for many fields of engineering technology.

 

Features of this text include:

  • Revised and updated content enhances the teaching aspects of the text.
  • Each chapter is written to introduce more complex material gradually.
  • Numerous computer problems help reinforce students’ understanding of the concepts.
  • Problems at the end of each chapter are grouped and referenced to a specific section. These problems are followed by a group of supplemental problems provided for review purposes. Generally, problems are arranged in order of increasing difficulty.
  • Design and analysis aids are included in an extensive appendix section, making the book self-contained. Both U.S. Customary and SI date are presented.

Synopsis:

Focusing on the fundamentals of material statics and strength, Applied Statics and Strength of Materials, Fifth Edition 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 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.
