Introduction to Engineering Analysis, 5th edition

  • Kirk D. Hagen

Overview

Introduction to Engineering Analysis is designed to teach first-year engineering students how to perform engineering analyses using a systematic problem-solving method. Written for students embarking on any engineering major, the book introduces the fundamental principles of a variety of engineering subjects and then applies the problem-solving method to those subjects. Approximately 40 percent of the end-of-chapter problems in the 5th Edition are revised or new, giving you more opportunities to practice and apply the problem-solving methodology you’ll use throughout your engineering coursework.
