From the Back Cover:

This book presents the foundations and applications of statics by emphasizing the importance of visual analysis of topics—especially through the use of free body diagrams. It also promotes a problem-solving approach to solving examples through its strategy, solution, and discussion format. The authors further include design and computational examples that help integrate these ABET 2000 requirements. Features strong coverage of free-body and kinetic diagrmas. Includes a revised discussion of reference frames. Chapter topics include: Motion of a Point; Force, Mass, and Acceleration; Energy Methods; Momentum Methods; Planar Kinematics of Rigid Bodies; Planar Dynamics of Rigid Bodies; Energy and Momentum in Rigid Body Dynamics; Three-Dimensional Kinematics and Dynamics of Rigid Bodies; Vibrations. For professionals in mechanical, civil, aeronautical, or engineering mechanics fields.
