For core introductory statics courses found in mechanical, civil, aeronautical, or engineering mechanics departments.
While teaching the basic principles of mechanics in an example-driven format, this innovative text takes a critical thinking approach to help introductory students learn to think like engineers. Compelling photorealistic art and a robust photograph program prompt students to visualize and think critically about engineering situations while Optional Design Examples and Computational Examples expose students to important ABET topics. This text is supported by the brand new OneKey course management system that enables instructors to post solutions, manage homework, and offer students test/quiz preparation and more via a free class Web site.

This text presents the foundations and applications of statics by emphasizing the importance of visual analysis of topics-especially through the use of free body diagrams. This text also promotes a problem-solving approach to solving examples through its strategy, solution, discussion format in examples. Bedford/Fowler further includes design and computational examples that help instructors integrate these ABET 2000 requirements.
Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics, Second Edition. This book has quickly earned a place in Engineering schools across the country because it teaches engineering mechanics the way a good instructor would
Wallace Fowler is Paul D. and Betty Robertson Meek Professor of Engineering in the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Fowler received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees at the University of Texas at Austin, and has been on the faculty since 1966. During 1976 he was on the staff of the United States Air Force Test Pilot School, Edwards Air Force Base, California, and in 1981-82 he was a visiting professor at the United States Air Force Academy. Since 1991 he has been Associate Director of the Texas Space Grant Consortium.
Dr. Fowler's areas of teaching and research are dynamics, orbital mechanics, and spacecraft mission design. He is author or coauthor of many technical papers on trajectory optimization and attitude dynamics, and has also published many papers on the theory and practice of engineering teaching. He has received numerous teaching awards, including the Chancellor's Council Outstanding Teaching Award, the General Dynamics Teaching Excellence Award, the Halliburton Education Foundation Award of Excellence, and the AIAA-ASEE Distinguished Aerospace Educator Award.
He is a licensed professional engineer, a member of many technical societies, and a fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and the American Society for Engineering Education.
