From the Publisher: This text provides thorough coverage of all basic statics and strength topics in an applied, step-by-step presentation that is ideal for undergraduate engineering technology students. New coverage based on recent trends in the field and the latest standards for AISC Load and Resistance Factor Design, introduces students to this new industry standard. All material is presented at a mathematics level which does not require the use of calculus. From the Back Cover: This fifth edition of Applied Statics and Strength of Materials presents a non-calculus based elementary, analytical and practical approach to the principles and physical concepts of statics and strength of materials.

About This Product Description Intended for one- and two-semester, undergraduate-level courses in Statics and Strength of Materials, Strength of Materials and Engineering Mechanics in an engineering technology program An elementary, analytical, practical approach to the fundamentals of statics and mechanics without the use of calculus Provide your students with the necessary background in mechanics—essential in many fields, such as civil, mechanical, construction, architectural, industrial, and manufacturing technologies—with the new Sixth Edition of Applied Statics and Strengths of Materials.
The focus is on the fundamentals of material statics and strength and the information is presented using an elementary, analytical, practical approach, without the use of calculus. To ensure understanding of the concepts, rigorous, comprehensive example problems follow the explanations of theory, and numerous homework problems at the end of each chapter allow for class examples, homework problems, or additional practice for students.
Updated and completely reformatted, the Sixth Edition features color in the illustrations, chapter-opening Learning Objectives highlighting major topics, updated terminology changed to be more consistent with design codes, and the addition of units to all calculations.
Features Accessible to students and courses at many levels and in any engineering or engineering technology program, the book explains statics and strength of materials without the use of calculus.
Topics and examples relate to numerous fields of engineering technology, including civil, industrial, manufacturing, construction, and architectural technology.
Competitiveness in a global economy is ensured as students are exposed to both the U. Customary Units and Metric Units systems of measurement throughout the book. Students develop a logical and systematic approach to problem solving.
Included are extensive example problems with solutions throughout the text. Approximately end-of-chapter problems are included.
Answers to selected problems appear at the end of the book. Computer problems are included at the end of most chapters allowing students and faculty to expand on topics through the use of spreadsheets. Invaluable Appendices allow the book to be used as a stand-alone reference source. Now even easier to understand: The addition of units to all calculations in the example problems helps to ensure better understanding of numerical substitution and unit cancellation through calculations.
Learning Objectives have been added to the start of each chapter to provide highlights of the major topics to be addressed in each chapter. Color has been added to the figures, tables and diagrams, making it easier for students to identify variables and unknowns in problems, as well as to locate tables and charts within the text. The text has been completely reformatted for this edition.
Example problems have been updated and expanded, providing faculty and students with an abundance of choices for reinforcing teaching and learning. Students are able to make the connection between statics and future higher-level courses more easily through changes in some of the variables and terminology to be more consistent with design codes.
Readers are up to date with dimensions and properties that are current and match design codes through the appendices, which have been updated from the Ninth edition of the AISC Manual to the Fourteenth Edition. New To This Edition Now even easier to understand: The addition of units to all calculations in the example problems helps to ensure better understanding of numerical substitution and unit cancellation through calculations.
