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.
- Fundamental Problems. These problem sets follow the example problems. They offer students simple applications of the concepts and, therefore, provide them with the chance to develop their problem-solving skills before attempting to solve any of the standard problems that follow. You may consider these problems as extended examples since they all have partial solutions and answers that are given in the back of the book. Additionally, when assigned, these problems offer students an excellent means of preparing for exams, and they can be used at a later time as a review when studying for the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam.
- Conceptual Problems. Throughout the text, usually at the end of each chapter, there is a set of problems that involve conceptual situations related to the application of the mechanics principles contained in the chapter. These analysis and design problems are intended to engage the students in thinking through a real-life situation as depicted in a photo.
- Procedures for Analysis. This feature provides students with a logical and orderly method for applying theory and building problem solving skills. A general procedure for analyzing any mechanical problem is presented at the end of the first chapter. Then this procedure is customized to relate to specific types of problems that are covered throughout the book.
- Examples. Designed to help students who “learn by example”, R.C. Hibbeler’s Examples illustrate the application of fundamental theory to practical engineering problems and reflect problem solving strategies discussed in associated Procedures for Analysis.
- Important Points. This feature provides a review or summary of the most important concepts in a section and highlights the most significant points that should be realized when applying the theory to solve problems.
- Video Solutions. Developed by Professor Edward Berger, University of Virginia, Video Solutions are located on the Companion Website for the text and offer step-by-step solution walkthroughs of representative homework problems from each section of the text.
- PhotoRealistic Art. 3D figures rendered with photographic quality
- Photographs. Many photographs are used throughout the book to explain how the principles of mechanics apply to real-world situation. Most photographs were taken by the author, and include appropriate vectors and notation illustrating a mechanics concept.
- Illustrations. These figures provide a strong connection to the 3-D nature of engineering. Particular attention has also been paid to providing a view of any physical object, its dimensions, and the vectors in a manner that can be easily understood.
REVIEW AND STUDENT SUPPORT
- End of Chapter Review. A thorough end of chapter review includes each important point accompanied by the relevant equation and art from the chapter providing the students a concise tool for reviewing chapter contents.
- MasteringEngineering. The most technologically advanced online tutorial and homework system. MasteringEngineering is designed to provide students with customized coaching and individualized feedback to help improve problem-solving skills while providing instructors with rich teaching diagnostics.
- Companion Website. Contains an abundance of additional resources for students, an access code to the site, located at www.pearsonhighered.com/hibbeler is included with the purchase of every new book or can be purchased separately at the website. Resources include:
- Pearson eText, which is a complete online version of the book that includes highlighting, note-taking, and search capabilities.
- Video Solutions that provide complete, step-by-step solution walkthroughs of representative homework problems from each chapter.
ACCURACYAs with the previous editions, apart from the author, the accuracy of the text and problem solutions has been thoroughly checked by four other parties: Scott Hendricks, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University; Karim Nohra, University of South Florida; Kurt Norlin, Laurel Tech Integrated Publishing Services; and finally Kai Beng, a practicing engineer, who in addition to accuracy review provided content development suggestions.
New to This Edition
- Preliminary Problems. This feature can be found throughout the text, and is given just before the Fundamental Problems. The intent here is to test the student’s conceptual understanding of the theory. Normally the solutions require little or no calculation, and as such, these problems provide a basic understanding of the concepts before they are applied numerically. All the solutions are given in the back of the text.
- Updated Examples. Some portions of the text have been rewritten in order to enhance clarity and be more succinct. In this regard, some new examples have been added and others have been modified to provide more emphasis on the application of important concepts. Included is application of the LRFD method of design, and use of A992 steel for structural applications. Also, the artwork has been improved throughout the book to support these changes.
- New Photos. The relevance of knowing the subject matter is reflected by the real-world applications depicted in over 30 new or updated photos placed throughout the book. These photos generally are used to explain how the relevant principles apply to real-world situations and how materials behave under load.
- Additional Fundamental Problems. These problem sets are located just after each group of example problems. In this edition they have been expanded. They offer students simple applications of the concepts covered in each section and, therefore, provide them with the chance to develop their problem-solving skills before attempting to solve any of the standard problems that follow. The fundamental problems may be considered as extended examples, since the key equations and answers are all listed in the back of the book. Additionally, when assigned, these problems offer students an excellent means of preparing for exams, and they can be used at a later time as a review when studying for the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam.
- Additional Conceptual Problems. Throughout the text, usually at the end of each chapter, there is a set of problems that involve conceptual situations related to the application of the principles contained in the chapter. These analysis and design problems are intended to engage the students in thinking through a real-life situation as depicted in a photo. They can be assigned after the students have developed some expertise in the subject matter and they work well either for individual or team projects.
- New Problems. There are approximately 31%, or about 460, new problems added to this edition, which involve applications to many different fields of engineering.
