View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Focusing on the fundamentals of material statics and strength, this book presents a non-Calculus-based, elementary, analytical, and practical approach, with example problems that follow the explanation of theory. The object of the book is to provide users with the necessary mechanics background to relate to the many fields of engineering technology—e.g., civil, mechanical, construction, architectural, industrial, and manufacturing. This comprehensive book covers the fundamentals of statics, coplanar force systems, structures, friction, gravity, inertia, stresses, properties of materials, torsion, shear and bending, beams, columns, connections, and pressure vessels. For use as a reference work for civil engineers, mechanical engineers, construction engineers, architects, industrial engineers, and manufacturing engineers.

From the Publisher:

This text provides thorough coverage of all basic statics and strength topics in an applied, step-by-step presentation that is ideal for undergraduate engineering technology students. New coverage based on recent trends in the field and the latest standards for AISC Load and Resistance Factor Design, introduces students to this new industry standard. All material is presented at a mathematics level which does not require the use of calculus.

From the Back Cover:

Focusing on mastery of the basics, Applied Statics and Strength of Materials, Fourth Edition, presents a non-calculus based elementary, analytical, and practical approach to the principles and physical concepts of statics and strength of materials. The book features a rigorous, comprehensive step-by-step problem-solving approach; an abundance of worked-out example problems and homework problems; and a focus on principles and applications for many fields of engineering technology.

Features of this text include:
  • A summary at the end of each chapter presents a thumbnail sketch of the important concepts presented in the chapter.
  • Problems at the end of each chapter are grouped and referenced to a specific section. These problems are followed by a group of supplemental problems provided for review purposes. Generally, problems are arranged in order of increasing difficulty.
  • Each chapter is written to introduce more complex material gradually.
  • Design and analysis aids are included in an extensive appendix section, making the book self-contained. Both U.S. Customary and SI data are presented.
