KEY BENEFIT: R.C. Hibbeler’s text features a large variety of problem types from a broad range of engineering disciplines, stressing practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice, varying levels of difficulty, and problems that involve solution by computer. KEY TOPICS: Maintaining the hallmark Hibbeler focus on problem-solving, visualization, and accuracy, this edition includes over 50% new problems, and new elements of Conceptual Problems, Fundamental Problems and MasteringEngineering, the most technologically advanced online tutorial system. MARKET: Ideal for civil and mechanical engineering professionals.
This ninth edition of a text/CD-ROM/workbook package on the theory and applications of engineering mechanics offers a new art program with color photographs illustrating principles of mechanics in action and enhanced color diagrams, and contains new examples and problems, including some that provide practice in drawing free-body diagrams. Problem sets have been revised so that instructors can select both design and analysis problems having a range of difficulty. Computer problems and design projects are also included. A new appendix has been added that gives practice in solving problems for the Fundamentals in Engineering Examination. The accompanying Statics Study Pack consists of a free-body diagram workbook, a CD-ROM with 63 pre-set simulations of statics examples from the text, and a password for a Web site. Annotation c.
