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.
