This book presents the foundations and applications of statics and mechanics of materials by emphasizing the importance of visual analysis of topics—especially through the use of free body diagrams. It also promotes a problem-solving approach to solving examples through its strategy, solution, and discussion format in examples. The authors further include design and computational examples that help integrate these ABET 2000 requirements. KEY TOPICS: Chapter topics include vectors, forces, systems of forces and moments, objects in equilibrium, structures in equilibrium, centroids and centers of mass centroids, moments of inertia, measures of stress and strain, states of stress, states of strain and the stress-strain relations, axially loaded bars, torsion, internal forces and moments in beams, stresses in beams, deflections of beams, buckling of columns, energy methods, and introduction to fracture mechanics. MARKET: For civil/aeronautical/engineering mechanics.
