For Combined Statics and Dynamics courses.This edition of the highly respected and well-known book for Engineering Mechanics focuses on developing a solid understanding of basic principles rather than rote learning of specific methodologies. It covers fundamental principles instead of "cookbook" problem-solving, and has been refined to make it more readable. It includes over 500 new problems rigorously checked for accuracy. Statics topics covered include fundamentals of mechanics, elements of vector algebra, important vector quantities, equivalent force systems, equations of equilibrium, introduction to structural mechanics, friction forces, properties of surfaces, moments and products of inertia, and methods of virtual work and stationary potential energy. Dynamics topics include kinematics of a particle, particle dynamics, energy methods for particles, methods of momentum for particles, kinematics of rigid bodies, kinetics of plane motion of rigid bodies, energy and impulse-momentum methods for rigid bodies, dynamics of general rigid-body motion, and vibrations.
