This supplement to Engineering Mechanics: Statics provides all of the necessary instructions to use Mathcad Student of Professional software to aid the reader in solving homework problems and working through the sample problems within the text. It is keyed heavily to the accompanying Statics text and works through many of the sample problems in detail. While this supplement suggests ways in which to use Mathcad to enhance your understanding of statics and teach you efficient computational skills, you may also browse through the Mathcad Student manual and think of your own usage of Mathcad to solve statics problems and applications in other courses. The manual consists of 11 chapters. The first chapter is a general introduction to Mathcad that concludes with a sample application of Mathcad to a statics problem and can be studied while reading Chapter 1 of the accompanying Statics text. The following 10 chapters present appropriate Mathcad solutions for some of the sample problems given in the text. Chapter 1 - Using Mathcad Computational Software Numerical Calculation Working with Functions Symbolic Calculations Solving Algebraic Equations Graphs and Plots Application of Mathcad to a Statics Problem Along with solutions to sample problems, other topics covered within this manual include: Mathcad as a Vector Calculator; Solution of Simultaneous Linear Equations; Using Mathcad for Other Matrix Calculations; Scalar of Dot Product; Vector or Cross Product Between Two Vectors; Parametric Solutions; Solution of Nonlinear Algebraic Equations; Vector or Cross Product Between Two Vectors; Numerical and Symbolic Integration; Three-Dimensional Scatter Plots; Symbolic Generation of Equilibrium Equations; Discontinuity Functions; Cables; Wedges; Belt Friction; Principle Second Moments of Area; Eigenvalue Problems

About the Author:

Daniel J. Inman received his Ph.D. from Michigan State University in Mechanical Engineering in 1980 and is the Director of the Center for Intelligent Material Systems and Structures and the G.R. Goodson Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech. Since 1980, he has published six books (on vibration, control, statics, and dynamics), eight software manuals, 20 book chapters, over 195 journal papers and 380 proceedings papers, given 34 keynote or plenary lectures, graduated 45 Ph.D. students and supervised more than 65 MS degrees. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Mechanics (AAM), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration (IIAV), and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). He is currently Technical Editor of the Journal of Intelligent Material Systems and Structures (1999- ), Technical Editor of the Shock and Vibration Digest (1998- ), and Technical Editor of the journal Shock and Vibration (1999- ). He has served as Technical Editor of ASME Journal of Vibration and Acoustics (1990-1999), and as Associate Editor of the following: ASME Journal of Vibration and Acoustics (1986-89), ASME Journal of Applied Mechanics (1988-94), Mechanics of Machines and Structures (1986-98), International Journal of Analytical and Experimental Modal Analysis (1986-1990) and Journal of Intelligent Material Systems and Structures (1992-1999) and Smart Materials and Structures (1991-2001). He is a founding member of the ASME Adaptive Structures and Material Systems Technical Committee and the AIAA Adaptive Structures Technical Committee. He won the ASME Adaptive Structures Award in April 2000, the ASME/AIAA SDM Best Paper Award in April 2001, the SPIE Smart Structures and Materials Life Time Achievement Award in March of 2003, the ASME Best Paper in Adaptive Structures in 2007, and the ASME Den Hartog Award in 2007
