Book Description

Offers a concise and thorough presentation of engineering mechanics theory and application. The material is reinforced with numerous examples to illustrate principles and imaginative, well-illustrated problems of varying degrees of difficulty. The book is committed to developing users' problem-solving skills. Features new "Photorealistc" figures (approximately 200) that have been rendered in often 3D photo quality detail to appeal to visual learners. Features a large variety of problem types from a broad range of engineering disciplines, stressing practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice, varying levels of difficulty, and problems that involve solution by computer. A thorough presentation of engineering mechanics theory and applications includes some of these topics: Force Vectors; Equilibrium of a Particle; Force System Resultants; Equilibrium of a Rigid Body; Structural Analysis; Internal Forces; Friction; Center of Gravity and Centroid; Moments of Inertia; and Virtual Work. For professionals in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, aeronautical engineering, and engineering mechanics careers.

4Anything can be an equation..
By Cheshire756
Statics and Dynamics were some of my favorite classes when I was in college studying for my BS degree in Mathematics and Engineering. I absolutely love all my books, and haven't been able to let many of them go (even if I haven't looked at them in years), but I believe that out of all the books I still have, this one might be the most handy to refresh my memory of the concepts and theory I was given the chance to absorb while I was studying in college. I think I still look at the world in vectors sometimes and it helps me see what all my studying went for.

4Engineering Mechanics - Statics (11th Edition) Hardcover from May 4, 2006 by Russell C. Hibbeler
By CDP's badhabit of purchasing
This is a standard for college courses in Engineering Statics and the earlier edition is the book I used in my studies in the early 70's. If there is a better text for introduction into the physics of engineering science, I am not familiar with it and I have several other texts on this subject. Russell C. Hibbeler has for years presented a study of this subject, that gives students a guide to learn the entire realm of Statics and the forces of energy on stationary objects and a lead in to the study of Dynamics. I recommend it to college age students who will need Engineering Mechanics as Statics for credit and knowledge gain for future instruction.

5Love this series of engineering mechanics!
By Rachel H.
This text is very useful in developing mastery of Engineering Dynamics. It is filled with many everyday hands-on examples, simplified and explained in a concise, detailed manner to glean understanding. The text takes basic physical concepts and builds upon them to an extension of practical knowledge. Writings also contain hints and tips to avoid common problem-solving pitfalls. I've also used the Hibbeler text for Statics, 12th ed. and have been exceptionally pleased with its ease of learning.
