What is included with this book?
¿This resource provides the necessary background in mechanics that is essential in many fields, such as civil, mechanical, construction, architectural, industrial, and manufacturing technologies. The focus is on the fundamentals of material statics and strength and the information is presented using an elementary, analytical, practical approach, without the use of Calculus. To ensure understanding of the concepts, rigorous, comprehensive example problems follow the explanations of theory, and numerous homework problems at the end of each chapter allow for class examples, homework problems, or additional practice for students. Updated and completely reformatted, the Sixth Edition of Applied Statics and Strength of Materials features color in the illustrations, chapter-opening Learning Objectives highlighting major topics, updated terminology changed to be more consistent with design codes, and the addition of units to all calculations.
