Statics and Strength of Materials is a new book that parallels and complements the author’s successful book, Applied Strength of Materials, that has served a broad array of programs emphasizing the applications of engineering mechanics since 1978 and is now in its 5th edition. This text integrates the principles of Statics with those of Strength of Materials within a single book, providing strong fundamentals on which students and professionals can build additional skills and knowledge in their chosen specialty.
This book offers instructors in a variety of fields the flexibility to arrange curricula differently from the traditional three-credit course. The emphasis on applications in a variety of fields makes the book attractive for engineering technology, applied engineering, and industrial technology programs (in either associate degree or bachelor degree arrangements).
For undergraduate, introductory level courses in Statics and Strength of Materials or Mechanics of Materials in departments of Mechanical Engineering Technology, Civil Engineering Technology, Aeronautical Engineering Technology, Construction Engineering Technology, Manufacturing Engineering Technology, Construction Management, or Architecture.
