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.
