A Proven Approach to Conceptual Understanding and Problem-solving Skills Engineering Mechanics: Statics excels in providing a clear and thorough presentation of the theory and application of engineering mechanics. Engineering Mechanics empowers students to succeed by drawing upon Professor Hibbeler’s everyday classroom experience and his knowledge of how students learn. This text is shaped by the comments and suggestions of hundreds of reviewers in the teaching profession, as well as many of the author’s students. The Fourteenth Edition includes new Preliminary Problems, which are intended to help students develop conceptual understanding and build problem-solving skills. The text features a large variety of problems from a broad range of engineering disciplines, stressing practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice, and having varying levels of difficulty. Also Available with MasteringEngineering -- an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Interactive, self-paced tutorials provide individualized coaching to help students stay on track. With a wide range of activities available, students can actively learn, understand, and retain even the most difficult concepts. The text and MasteringEngineering work together to guide students through engineering concepts with a multi-step approach to problems.
This is the more practical approach to engineering mechanics that deals mainly withtwo-dimensional problems, since these comprise the great majority of engineering situationsand are the necessary foundation for good design practice. The format developedfor this textbook, moreover, has been devised to benefit from contemporary ideas ofproblem solving as an educational tool. In both areas dealing with statics and dynamics,theory is held apart from applications, so that practical engineering problems, whichmake use of basic theories in various combinations, can be used to reinforce theoryand demonstrate the workings of static and dynamic engineering situations.In essence a traditional approach, this book makes use of two-dimensional engineeringdrawings rather than pictorial representations. Word problems are included in the latterchapters to encourage the student's ability to use verbal and graphic skills interchangeably.SI units are employed throughout the text.This concise and economical presentation of engineering mechanics has been classroomtested and should prove to be a lively and challenging basic textbook for two onesemestercourses for students in mechanical and civil engineering. Applied EngineeringMechanics: Statics and Dynamics is equally suitable for students in the second or thirdyear of four-year engineering technology programs.
ENGINEERING MECHANICS: STATICS, 4E, written by authors Andrew Pytel and Jaan Kiusalaas, provides readers with a solid understanding of statics without the overload of extraneous detail. The authors use their extensive teaching experience and first-hand knowledge to deliver a presentation that's ideally suited to the skills of today's learners. This edition clearly introduces critical concepts using features that connect real problems and examples with the fundamentals of engineering mechanics. Readers learn how to effectively analyze problems before substituting numbers into formulas -- a skill that will benefit them tremendously as they encounter real problems that do not always fit into standard formulas.

Jong and Rogers have written an in depth text covering various topics of the first courses in statics and dynamics offered in the sophmore and junior year of engineering colleges. Students are assumed to have a background in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and basic differential and integral calculus. Students with prior knowledge of college physics will have an added advantage for learning statics and dynamics. Mechanics has long been recognized as a deductive science. However, the learning process is largely inductive. In the text, simple topics and problems precede those that are more complex and advanced. The text is written to provide a clear and up-to-date presentation of the theory and application of engineering mechanics; It is aimed at helping engineering students develop an ability to apply well-established principles to analyze and solve problems in a logical and effective manner.
The third edition of Engineering Mechanics: Statics written by nationally regarded authors Andrew Pytel and Jaan Kiusalaas, provides students with solid coverage of material without the overload of extraneous detail. The extensive teaching experience of the authorship team provides first-hand knowledge of the learning skill levels of today’s student which is reflected in the text through the pedagogy and the tying together of real world problems and examples with the fundamentals of Engineering Mechanics. Designed to teach students how to effectively analyze problems before plugging numbers into formulas, students benefit tremendously as they encounter real life problems that may not always fit into standard formulas. This book was designed with a rich, concise, two-color presentation and has a stand alone Study Guide which includes further problems, examples, and case studies.

Plesha, Gray, & Costanzo's Engineering Mechanics, Statics & Dynamics, second edition is the Problem Solver's Approach for Tomorrow's Engineers. Based upon a great deal of classroom teaching experience, Plesha, Gray, & Costanzo provide a visually appealing, “step-by-step” learning framework. The presentation is modern, up-to-date and student centered, and the introduction of topics and techniques is relevant, with examples and exercises drawn from the world around us and emerging technologies. Every example problem is broken down in a consistent “step-by-step” manner that emphasises a “Problem Solver's Approach” which builds from chapter to chapter and moves from easily solved problems to progressively more difficult ones. Engineering Mechanics is also accompanied by McGraw-Hill Connect which allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the students' work. Most problems in Connect are randomised to prevent sharing of answers and most also have a “multi-step solution” which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty. Engineering Mechanics, Statics & Dynamics, second edition, by Plesha, Gray, & Costanzo, a new dawn for the teaching and learning of statics and dynamics.
This compact and easy-to-read text provides a clear analysis of the principles of equilibrium of rigid bodies in statics and dynamics when they are subjected to external mechanical loads. The book also introduces the readers to the effects of force or displacements so as to give an overall picture of the behaviour of an engineering system. Divided into two parts-statics and dynamics-the book has a structured format, with a gradual development of the subject from simple concepts to advanced topics so that the beginning undergraduate is able to comprehend the subject with ease. Example problems are chosen from engineering practice and all the steps involved in the solution of a problem are explained in detail. The book also covers advanced topics such as the use of virtual work principle for finite element analysis; introduction of Castigliano's theorem for elementary indeterminate analysis; use of Lagrange's equations for obtaining equilibrium relations for multibody system; principles of gyroscopic motion and their applications; and the response of structures due to ground motion and its use in earthquake engineering. The book has plenty of exercise problems-which are arranged in a graded level of difficulty-, worked-out examples and numerous diagrams that illustrate the principles discussed. These features along with the clear exposition of principles make the text suitable for the first year undergraduate students in engineering.
