Synopses & Reviews
More than just a book, this volume is part of a system to teach engineering mechanics, a system comprised of three components: 1) this core principles book, 2) algorithmic problem material available online, and 3) a course management system to track and monitor student progress. KEY TOPICS" Chapter topics cover vectors, forces, systems of forces and moments, objects in equilibrium, structures in equilibrium, centroids and centers of mass, moments of inertia, friction, internal forces and moments, and virtual work and potential energy. For individuals preparing for a career in engineering mechanics.
On-Line Assignments at
This paperback version of "Engineering Mechanics--Statics, Third Edition," comes with access to PHGradeAssist--Prentice Hall's on-line, algorithmic homework generator and grading system. Using this system, professors create assignments from over 1500 "Statics" problems keyed to this book by chapter and section. When students access these problems on-line, PHGradeAssist generates a unique version of the problem for each student. Students may print out their problem sets and work them off line or answers can be submitted and graded by the system and tracked in an instructor on-line gradebook. "What is Missing From This "Principles" Version?"
No core theoretical or example material has been deleted from the typical "Statics" presentation; students and instructors will find a compete discussion of the subject. Most problem material has been removed from the printed text, since students using this book will get their homework assignments on line.
