Focusing on the fundamentals of material statics and strength, Applied Statics and Strength of Materials, Fifth Edition presents a non-Calculus-based, elementary, analytical, and practical approach, with rigorous, comprehensive example problems that follow the explanation of theory and very complete homework problems that allow trainees to practice the material. The goal of the book is to provide readers with the necessary mechanics background for more advanced and specialized areas of study in the many fields of engineering technology -- for example, civil, mechanical, construction, architectural, industrial, and manufacturing.
This textbook provides students with a foundation in the general procedures and principles of the mechanical design process. It introduces students to solving force systems, selecting components and determining resultants in equilibrium. Strength failures of various materials will also be presented. In addition, the author has includes information about how to -- analyze and solve problems involving force systems, components, resultants and equilibrium; determine center of gravity and centroids of members and objects; identify moment of inertia of objects; analyze simple structures under linear stress and strain; investigate the effects of torsion on shafts and springs; find the load, stress and deflection on beams; and analyze structures subjected to combined loading.
"Applied Strength of Materials" provides comprehensive coverage of the key topics in strength of materials with an emphasis on applications, problem solving, and design of structural members, mechanical devices, and systems. The fourth edition of this best-selling text has been updated and enhanced to include a new "Big Picture" feature and a brief review of statics in a new appendix. Strengths of this text include: A section called "The Big Picture" begins each chapter and engages students in discussion of the many contexts in which the principles in that chapter are used in real, practical design. This feature draws on the students' own experience and builds their knowledge of the mechanical design field. It is based on the learning theory that students learn better when they can relate new concepts to past experiences and when they consider the whole before tackling the details. An extensive introduction to composite materials along with the commentary throughout the book on the application of composites to various kinds of load-carrying members and comparisons/contrasts of composites to traditional structural members. Suggested computer programming assignments with recommended uses for spreadsheets, equation-solving software such as MATLAB, and graphing calculators to reflect the continuing development of electronic aids. Strong presentation of design approaches in addition to analysis, providing extensive information on guidelines for design ofmechanical devices and structural members.
A study of mechanical engineering technology that emphasizes the applications of principles, rather than math. The first part of the book (Chapters 1-10) covers Statics; the rest of the chapters deal with Strength of Materials and Design. In this 5th new edition, the final chapter provides a sample design that considers stresses, then stresses and displacements. Included in this chapter is a programmed text with blanks for the students to fill out as the text leads them through the material.
Fundamentals of Manufacturing, Third Edition provides a structured review of the fundamentals of manufacturing for individuals planning to take SME'S Certified Manufacturing Technologist (CMfgT) or Certified Manufacturing Engineer (CMfgE) certification exams. This book has been updated according to the most recent Body of Knowledge published by the Certification Oversight and Appeals Committee of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers. While the objective of this book is to prepare for the certification process, it is a primary source of information for individuals interested in learning fundamental manufacturing concepts and practices. This book is a valuable resource for anyone with limited manufacturing experience or training. Instructor slides and the Fundamentals of Manufacturing Workbook are available to complement course instruction and exam preparation.
