Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over the past 50 years, Meriam & Kraige's Engineering Mechanics: Statics has established a highly respected tradition of Excellence—A Tradition that emphasizes accuracy, rigor, clarity, and applications. Now completely revised, redesigned, and modernized, the new fifth edition of this classic text builds on these strengths, adding new problems and a more accessible, student-friendly presentation.

NEW FEATURES

Accessibility: New Contributors Bill Palm has revised the text to make it easier to understand

Pedagogy: End-of-Chapter summaries and highlighted "key concepts" sections help students remember key points

New Application Areas: Includes new application areas such as biomechanics

New Homework Problems: 50% of the problems are new or revised

Solving Problem With...: A Series of optional booklets on "Solving Statics Problems with" Matlab, Mathcad, and Maple

Web-Based Problem Solving: A Collection of over 150 online problems

Extension Sample Prob lems: These problems show how computational tools can be used to solve a variety of 'What If' Scenarios

Electronic Figures and Electronic Transparencies of Solved Problems: Text figures and more than 100 solved problems are available on the Web

Synopsis:

This text relates to problems dealing with principles and procedures inherent in the design and analysis of engineering structures and mechanical systems, with many of the problems referring explicitly to design considerations.

Synopsis:

Concise and authoritative, this book set the standard for excellence in basic mechanics texts. The major emphasis is on basic principles and problem formulation. Strong effort has been made to show both the cohesiveness of the relatively few fundamental ideas and the great variety of problems that these ideas solve. All of the problems deal with principles and procedures inherent in the design and analysis of engineering structures and mechanical systems with many of the problems referring explicitly to design considerations.
