This textbook is designed for introductory statics courses found in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, aeronautical engineering, and engineering mechanics departments. It better enables students to learn challenging material through effective, efficient examples and explanations.
The fast and easy way to learn statics and dynamics This new title in the popular Demystified series offers practical, easy-to-follow coverage of the difficult statics and dynamics course. Expert author David McMahon follows the standard curriculum, starting with basic mathematical concepts and moving on to advanced topics such as Newton's Law, structural analysis, centrifugal forces, kinematics, and the LaGrange method.
Study faster, learn better, and get top grades Modified to conform to the current curriculum, Schaum's Outline of Engineering Mechanics: Statics complements these courses in scope and sequence to help you understand its basic concepts. The book offers practice on topics such as orthogonal triad of unit vectors, dot or scalar product, resultant of distributed force system, noncoplanar force systems, slope of the Shear diagram, and slope of the Moment diagram. You'll also get coverage of the laws of friction, rolling resistance, the centroid of a continuous quantity, and the theorems of Pappus and Guldinus. Appropriate for the following courses: Engineering Mechanics; Introduction to Mechanics; Statics; Mechanical Engineering; Engineer-in-Training Review. Features: Hundreds of solved problems Support for all the major textbooks for static courses Topics include: Vectors, Forces, Coplanar Force Systems, Noncoplanar Force Systems, Equilibrium of Coplanar Force Systems, Equilibrium of Noncoplanar Force Systems, Trusses and Cables, Forces in Beams, Friction, First Moments, Centroids, and Moments of Inertia, Virtual Work
a supplement to accompany Engineering mechanics: dynamics, 5th edition by J.L. Meriam and L.G. Kraige
Author: Brian D. Harper
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons Inc
Over the past 50 years, Meriam && Kraige's Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics has established a highly respected tradition of Excellence—A Tradition that emphasizes accuracy, rigor, clarity, and applications. Now completely revised, redesigned, and modernized, the new fifth edition of this classic text builds on these strengths, adding new problems and a more accessible, student-friendly presentation. Solving Statics Problems with Mathcad If Mathcad is the computer algebra system you need to use for your engineering calculations and graphical output, this reference will be a valuable tutorial for your studies. Written as a guidebook for students in the Engineering Mechanics class, it will help you with your engineering assignments throughout the course
