 Mechanics courses tend to provide engineering students with a precise, mathematical, but less than engaging experience. Students often view the traditional approach as a mysterious body of facts and “tricks” that allow idealized cases to be solved. When confronted with more realistic systems, they are often at a loss as to how to proceed. To address this issue, this course empowers students to tackle meaningful problems at an early stage in their studies. Engineering Mechanics: Statics, First Edition begins with a readable overview of the concepts of mechanics. Important equations are introduced, but the emphasis is on developing a “feel” for forces and moments, and for how loads are transferred through structures and machines. From that foundation, the course helps lay a motivational framework for students to build their skills in solving engineering problems.
