Designed to provide a mature, in-depth treatment of mechanics at the undergraduate level and to offer continuity with, and a smooth transition to, upper-level courses, this text focuses on developing a solid understanding of basic principles, rather than rote learning of specific methodologies. This edition includes 400 new problems equally divided between statics and dynamics and 30 computer projects, including many which require students to prepare their own software or engage in design. There is also a revised chapter on plane motion to provide greater clarity, particularly in the solving of problems. The volumes in this set are available individually.

A revision of a highly-respected and well known text for courses in Engineering Mechanics.From the Back Cover:
This edition of the highly respected and well-known book for Engineering Mechanics focuses on developing a solid understanding of basic principles rather than rote learning of specific methodologies. It covers fundamental principles instead of “cookbook” problem–solving, and has been refined to make it more readable. It includes over 500 new problems rigorously checked for accuracy. Statics topics covered include fundamentals of mechanics, elements of vector algebra, important vector quantities, equivalent force systems, equations of equilibrium, introduction to structural mechanics, friction forces, properties of surfaces, moments and products of inertia, and methods of virtual work and stationary potential energy. Dynamics topics include kinematics of a particle, particle dynamics, energy methods for particles, methods of momentum for particles, kinematics of rigid bodies, kinetics of plane motion of rigid bodies, energy and impulse-momentum methods for rigid bodies, dynamics of general rigid-body motion, and vibrations.
