Now available in English - the best selling German textbook

Statics is the first volume of a three-volume textbook on Engineering Mechanics. It is the intention of the authors to present to engineering students the basic concepts and principles of mechanics in the clearest and simplest form possible. An important objective of this book is to develop problem solving skills in a systematic manner. The straightforward and flexible approach of the text to the theory of mechanics makes it accessible to students from different disciplines and allows for different educational backgrounds.

Another aim of this book is to provide engineering students as well as practising engineers with a solid foundation to help them bridge the gaps between undergraduate studies, advanced courses on mechanics and practical engineering problems.

Strong evidence that all these objectives have been achieved is the success of the original German version of this textbook series. It is the bestselling textbook for more than two decades and its 10th edition has just been published.

The book contains numerous examples, along with their complete solutions. Emphasis is placed upon student participation in problem solving. The contents of the book correspond to the topics normally covered in courses on basic engineering mechanics at universities and colleges.

From the Back Cover:

Statics is the first volume of a three-volume textbook on Engineering Mechanics. It was written with the intention of presenting to engineering students the basic concepts and principles of mechanics in as simple a form as the subject allows. A second objective of this book is to guide the students in their efforts to solve problems in mechanics in a systematic manner. The simple approach to the theory of mechanics allows for the different educational backgrounds of the students.

Another aim of this book is to provide engineering students as well as practising engineers with a basis to help them bridge the gaps between undergraduate studies, advanced courses on mechanics and practical engineering problems.

The book contains numerous examples and their solutions. Emphasis is placed upon student participation in solving the problems. The contents of the book correspond to the topics normally covered in courses on basic engineering mechanics at universities and colleges.

Volume 2 deals with Mechanics of Materials; Volume 3 contains Particle Dynamics and Rigid Body Dynamics.

About the Author:

Dietmar Gross received his Engineering Diploma in Applied Mechanics and his Doctor of Engineering degree at the University of Rostock. He was Research Associate at the University of Stuttgart and since 1976 he is Professor of Mechanics at the University of Darmstadt. His research interests are mainly focused on modern solid mechanics on the macro and micro scale, including advanced materials, Werner Hauger studied Applied Mathematics and Mechanics at the University of Karlsruhe and received his Ph.D. in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics from Northwestern University in Evans-ton. He worked in industry for several years, was a Professor at the Helmut-Schmidt-University in Hamburg and went to the University of Darmstadt in 1978. His research interests are, among others, theory of stability, dynamic plasticity and biomechanics. Jörg Schröder studied Civil Engineering, received his doctoral degree at the University of Hannover and habilitated at the University of Stuttgart. He was Professor of Mechanics at the University of Darmstadt and went to the University of Duisburg-Essen in 2001. His fields of research are theoretical and computer-oriented continuum mechanics, modeling of functional materials as well as the further development of the finite element method. Wolfgang A. Wall studied Civil Engineering at Innsbruck University and received his doctoral degree from the University of Stuttgart. Since 2003 he is Professor of Mechanics at the TU München and Head of the Institute for Computational Mechanics. His research interests cover broad fields in computational mechanics, including both solid and fluid mechanics. His recent focus is on multiphysics and multiscale problems as well as computational biomechanics. Nimal Rajapakse studied Civil Engineering at the University of Sri Lanka and received Doctor of Engineer-ing from the Asian Institute of Technology in 1983. He was Professor of Mechanics and Department Head at the University of Manitoba and at the University of British Colum-bia. He is currently Dean of Applied Sciences at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. His research interests include mechanics of advanced materials and geomechanics.
