For undergraduate, introductory level courses in Statics and Strength of Materials, in departments of Mechanical Engineering Technology, Civil Engineering Technology, Construction Engineering Technology or Manufacturing Engineering Technology
This text features a strong presentation of the fundamentals of strength of materials (or mechanics of materials) integrated with an emphasis on applications to many fields of engineering and engineering technology. The approach to mathematics use in the book satisfies both those programs where calculus use is expected and those for which college algebra and trigonometry are the prerequisite skills needed by the students.
