Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This concise and authoritative book emphasizes basic principles and problem formulation. It illustrates both the cohesiveness of the relatively few fundamental ideas in this area and the great variety of problems these ideas solve. All of the problems address 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.

Book News Annotation:

**** The second edition, 1975, is cited in BCL3. This new edition is likewise marked by careful attention to clarity and detail, making it preeminent among engineering mechanics texts. Meriam and Kraige emphasize the importance of visualization, problem solving, and logically sequenced mathematics in their coverage of statics, force systems, equilibrium, structures, distributed forces, friction, and virtual work. Each section is accompanied by color illustrations (new to this edition), computer concepts, and problems posed to integrate theory and application. The four appendices contain additional information on inertia, selected mathematical topics, and helpful tables. Also includes photographs.
