Applied Mechanics for Engineering Technology [Mechanical engineering]

Applied Mechanics for Engineering Technology

Applied Mechanics for Engineering Technology, 8/E

For courses in Applied Mechanics, Statics/Dynamics, or Introduction to Stress Analysis.

Featuring a non-calculus approach, this introduction to applied mechanics text combines a straightforward, readable foundation in underlying physics principles with a consistent method of problem solving. It presents the physics principles in small elementary steps; keeps the mathematics at a reasonable level; provides an abundance of worked examples; and features problems that are as practical as possible without becoming too involved with many extraneous details. This edition features 7% more problems, an enhanced layout and design and a logical, disciplined approach that gives students a sound background in core statics and dynamics competencies.

Hallmark Features

Concise, analytical approach to problem solving–that trains readers to use the following problem-solving sequence:

  • Summarize given info & type of problem
  • Identify needs or calculations required
  • Layout problem and the sequence of steps needed for the complete solution
  • Document calculations thoroughly for easy reference and verification

Direct style and 175 worked examples–presents theory with a few clear statements as each subject is developed and illustrated through practical examples.

  • Provides students with a text that is very readable and to the point.

Abundant number of problems and examples–complete with clarifying remarks.

  • Provides students with examples and problems that emphasize the application of theory and the relevance of material to the real-world.

Hints for Problem-Solving sections–conclude each chapter.

  • Provides a strategy and troubleshooting techniques that will assist students in analyzing and solving all types of problems.

Answers for all problems–provided in the back of the text.

  • Allows students to check their work as they go and encourages students to tackle more challenging or more varied problems on their own.

Clear components, equivalent couples, equilibrium and free-body diagrams explanations–appear in the book.

  • Provides students with an appropriate presentation sequence of difficult concepts.
