### Engineering Mechanics Statics: Volume - 1 (7th Edition)

File Size: 29.84 mb

Description
Engineering mechanics is both a foundation and a framework for most of the branches of engineering. Many of the topics in such areas as civil, mechanical, aerospace, and agricultural engineering, and of course engineering mechanics itself, are based upon the subjects of statics and dynamics. Even in a discipline such as electrical engineering, practitioners, in the course of considering the electrical components of a robotic device or a manufacturing process, may find themselves first having to deal with the mechanics involved. Thus, the engineering mechanics sequence is critical to the engineering curriculum. Not only is this sequence needed in itself, but courses in engineering mechanics also serve to solidify the student’s understanding of other important subjects, including applied mathematics, physics, and graphics. In addition, these courses serve as excellent settings in which to strengthen problem-solving abilities.

Features New to This Edition:

While retaining the hallmark features of all previous editions, we have incorporated
these improvements:

• All theory portions have been reexamined in order to maximize rigor, clarity,
• Key Concepts areas within the theory presentation have been specially marked and
highlighted.
• The Chapter Reviews are highlighted and feature itemized summaries.
• Approximately 50 percent of the homework problems are new to this Seventh Edition.
All new problems have been independently solved in order to ensure a high degree of
accuracy.
• New Sample Problems have been added, including ones with computer-oriented
solutions.
• All Sample Problems are printed on specially colored pages for quick identification.
connection to actual situations in which statics has played a major role.
