Statics and Strength of Materials

9780131911376: Statics and Strength of Materials

An introductory Statics or Strength of Materials text for students enrolled in the Industrial or Engineering Technology curriculum, and in university-level courses for non-engineering majors, such as Architecture.

This is an introductory, yet comprehensive text, which provides in-depth coverage of both statics and strength of materials at an elementary level—not requiring calculus. However, for instructors who use the text to teach in accredited programs in the technologies, optional sections requiring calculus are included. Generally, care has been taken to present the various topics with clarity in a simple and direct fashion and to avoid information overload.

From the Back Cover:

This text covers the topics of statics and strength of materials at a level that is appropriate for industrial technology and engineering technology programs, as well as for university-level courses for non-engineering majors such as architecture. The book uses U.S. Customary and SI units equally in worked examples and practice problems. Sections requiring calculus are included for professors who teach in accredited programs in the technologies; these sections are marked with asterisks and may be omitted, depending on the level of coverage required, without a loss of continuity in the text. Chapters I through 8 cover the topic of statics and include a review of unit conversions, trigonometry, and simultaneous equations. Chapters 9 through 18 are devoted to the study of strength of materials.

The new edition also includes:
  • "Application sidebars" scattered throughout the text containing photos and line art that integrate theory with practice in selected areas of construction and manufacturing
  • A new section on residential design using tabulated values taken from the principal model building codes
  • More than 200 worked examples, and over 950 practice problems in varying degrees of difficulty
  • A new table of properties for MEL and MSR machine-graded lumber, with examples demonstrating their use
