Plesha, Gray, & Costanzo's Engineering Mechanics, 2e is the Problem Solver's Approach for Tomorrow's Engineers.
Based upon a great deal of classroom teaching experience, Plesha, Gray, & Costanzo provide a visually appealing learning framework to your students. The look of the presentation is modern, like the other books the students have experienced, and the presentation itself is relevant, with examples and exercises drawn from the world around us, not the world of sixty years ago.
Examples are broken down in a consistent manner that promotes students' ability to setup a problem and easily solve problems of incrementally harder difficulty.
Engineering Mechanics is also accompanied by McGraw-Hill's Connect which allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the students' work. Most problems in Connect are randomized to prevent sharing of answers and most also have a "multi-step solution" which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty.
Engineering Mechanics, 2e by Plesha, Gray, & Costanzo, a new dawn for statics and dynamics.

Michael E. Plesha is a Professor of Engineering Mechanics in the Department of Engineering Physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Professor Plesha received his B.S. from the University of Illinois-Chicago in structural engineering and materials, and his M.S. and Ph.D. from Northwestern University in structural engineering and applied mechanics. His primary research areas are computational mechanics, focusing on the development of fi nite element and discrete element methods for solving static and dynamic nonlinear problems, and the development of constitutive models for characterizing behavior of materials. Much of his work focuses on problems featuring contact, friction, and material interfaces. Applications include nanotribology, high temperature rheology of ceramic composite materials, modeling geomaterials including rock and soil, penetration mechanics, and modeling crack growth in structures. He is co-author of the book Concepts and Applications of Finite Element Analysis (with R. D. Cook, D. S. Malkus, and R. J. Witt). He teaches courses in statics, basic and advanced mechanics of materials, mechanical vibrations, and fi nite element methods.
