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.
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. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
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. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
While covering the basic principles of mechanics in an example-driven format, this innovative book emphasizes critical thinking by presenting the reader with engineering situations. Compelling photorealistic art, and a robust photograph program helps readers to connect visually to the topics discussed.Features strong coverage of FBDs and important ABET topics. Chapter topics include: Vectors; Forces; Systems of Forces and Moments; Objects in Equilibrium; Structures In Equilibrium; Centroids and Centers of Mass; Moments of Inertia; Friction; Internal Forces and Moments; Virtual Work and Potential Energy.For professionals in mechanical, civil, aeronautical, or engineering mechanics fields.
Excerpt from The Elements of Statics and Dynamics The science which treats of the action of force on bodies in motion is called Dynamics. In the more modern system of nomenclature which is gradually gaining general acceptance, the science which treats of the action of force on bodies is called Dynamics, and it has two subdivisions, Statics and Kinetics, treating of the action of forces on bodies which are at rest and in motion respectively.

Nationally regarded authors Andrew Pytel and Jaan Kiusalaas bring a depth of experience to the Second Editions of ENGINEERING MECHANICS: STATICS AND DYNAMICS that can't be surpassed. They have refined their solid coverage of this material without overloading it with extraneous detail. Their extensive teaching experience at The Pennsylvania State University gives them first-hand knowledge of students' learning skill levels and how the study of mechanics needs to tie to the real world. Their presentation is designed to teach students how to effectively analyze a problem before plugging numbers into formulas. This approach benefits students tremendously as they encounter real life problems that may not always fit into standard formulas. These books are designed with a rich, concise, one-color presentation at a substantially lower cost than competing texts.
