For core Introductory Statics and Mechanics of Materials courses found in mechanical, civil, aeronautical, or engineering mechanics departments.This text presents the foundations and applications of statics and mechanics of materials by emphasizing the importance of visual analysis of topics-especially through the use of free body diagrams. It also promotes a problem-solving approach to solving examples through its strategy, solution, and discussion format in examples. The authors further include design and computational examples that help instructors integrate these ABET 2000 requirements.True problem-solving approach in examples-Structures most examples into three sections: Strategy, Solution, and Discussion: Strategy-Lays out plan of attack for example. Encourages students to think about the challenges inherent in an example. Solutions-A complete step-by-step solution follows that focuses heavily on free-body diagrams and uses them as a tool. Discussion-Asks the student to consider alternate methods of solution or proposes ways to check work. Encourages students to think about how to solve examples versus following a list.Engineering design-Includes design examples. More design examples and projects found on the Web. Emphasizes application-Places the subjects within the context of engineering practice by including applications from many fields of engineering. Computational mechanics examples located on the Website-Provide optional self-contained examples. Professors can use any programming language or math solver of their choice. Contains more examples than competing texts for students who learn primarily through examples. NEW - All examples now titled to indicate exactly what material they cover. NEW - Study questions-Many sections end with 3-4 brief, open-ended study questions. Tests a student's understanding of a section.Website-Contains: Over 30 Matlab and MathCAD tutorials/worksheets prepared for concepts in the text; extra computational examples; design support including extra example student projects; supplemental material; T/F, and multiple-choice concept questions keyed to each chapter. Statics Study Pack-Optional supplement contains: free body diagram workbook; working model simulation CD; passcode access to 250 supplemental statics problems.
