For one- and two-semester undergraduate-level courses in statics and strength of materials or engineering mechanics in an engineering technology program.
An accessible, practical approach to statics and mechanics, without the use of calculus
Applied Statics and Strengths of Materials helps you master the basic principles and physical concepts of statics and strength of materials, so you can solve real-world problems. Using intermediate math rather than calculus, the text gives you the background in mechanics you'll need in fields such as civil, mechanical, construction, architectural, industrial, and manufacturing technologies. To reinforce concepts, rigorous example problems follow explanations of theory, and end-of-chapter problems provide ample practice. The 7th edition has been completely updated and revised to meet current industry standards.
