Applied Statics and Strength of Materials, 7th edition

  • George Limbrunner
  • Craig D'Allaird


Applied Statics and Strengths of Materials helps students master the basic principles and physical concepts of statics and strength of materials, so they can solve real-world problems. Using intermediate math rather than calculus, the text gives students the background in mechanics they'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.
