Excerpt from An Introduction to Applied Mechanics: Applied Mechanics

Many engineering and architectural teachers have found that applied mechanics is not an easy subject to teach, and most students have discovered that it is a difficult subject to understand. In searching for the reason for this unfortunate state of affairs, the author came to the conclusion that the treatment of the older form of text-book was too much that of applied mathematics - a kind of exercise-ground for algebraic manipulation - and that many of the more modem books that have attempted to remedy this weakness have given too much engineering application of the principles of mechanics without sufficient explanation of those principles.

The aim of the present book is to present the elementary principles of mechanics in accurate though clear terms and to show the application of those principles to the simpler problems arising in engineering and architectural applications. The general treatment is based more upon graphical conceptions than upon purely mathematical analysis because experience shows that the mind of the engineering student reasons more clearly from diagrams than from symbols.

A number of simple experiments have been given, principally those which require the simplest form of apparatus. It is not suggested that the experiments given are all that are desirable in a laboratory course, but it is believed that sufficient have been given to make the principles clear.
