Statics is one of the most important and fundamental courses in engineering mechanics. The objective of this book is to impart knowledge of fundamental concepts and to gain skill of identifying, formulating and solving engineering problems and also to apply concepts of statics in solving real life problems. The book starts with an introduction to mechanics and goes on to cover concepts of statics like system of forces, equilibrium, analysis of structures, centroid, moment of inertial, friction and stress strain. The topics are covered in an easy to understand manner. Since problem solving is critical in engineering mechanics, the solutions to the problems are given in a systematic and step-wise manner.

Sayavur I. Bakhtiyarov ... 125 pages - Publisher: Morgan&Claypool; (October, 2017) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 168173611X - ISBN-13: 978-1681736112.

Engineering mechanics is one of the fundamental branches of science that is important in the education of professional engineers of any major. Most of the basic engineering courses, such as mechanics of materials, fluid and gas mechanics, machine design, mechatronics, acoustics, vibrations, etc. are based on engineering mechanics courses. In order to absorb the materials of engineering mechanics, it is not enough to consume just theoretical laws and theorems—a student also must develop an ability to solve practical problems. Therefore, it is necessary to solve many problems independently. This book is a part of a four-book series designed to supplement the engineering mechanics courses. This series instructs and applies the principles required to solve practical engineering problems in the following branches of mechanics: statics, kinematics, dynamics, and advanced kinetics. Each book contains between 6 and 8 topics on its specific branch and each topic features 30 problems to be assigned as homework, tests, and/or midterm/final exams with the consent of the instructor. A solution of one similar sample problem from each topic is provided. This first book contains seven topics of statics, the branch of mechanics concerned with the analysis of forces acting on construction systems without an acceleration (a state of the static equilibrium). The book targets the undergraduate students of the sophomore/junior level majoring in science and engineering.

James F. Doyle ... 442 pages - Publisher: Springer; (July, 1991) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0792312082 - ISBN-13: 978-0792312086.

This book is concerned with the static and dynamic analysis of structures. Specifi­ cally, it uses the stiffness formulated matrix methods for use on computers to tackle some of the fundamental problems facing engineers in structural mechanics. This is done by covering the Mechanics of Structures, its rephrasing in terms of the Matrix Methods, and then their Computational implementation, all within a cohesivesetting. Although this book is designed primarily as a text for use at the upper-undergraduate and beginning graduate level, many practicing structural engineers will find it useful as a reference and self-study guide. Several dozen books on structural mechanics and as many on matrix methods are currently available. A natural question to ask is why another text? An odd devel­ opment has occurred in engineering in recent years that can serve as a backdrop to why this book was written. With the widespread availability and use of comput­ ers, today's engineers have on their desk tops an analysis capability undreamt of by previous generations. However, the ever increasing quality and range of capabilities of commercially available software packages has divided the engineering profession into two groups: a small group of specialist program writers that know the ins and outs of the coding, algorithms, and solution strategies; and a much larger group of practicing engineers who use the programs. It is possible for this latter group to use this enormous power without really knowing anything of its source.

Javier Bonet, Antonio J. Gil ... 350 pages - Publisher: Cambridge Univ. Press; 1st edition (July, 2016) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 1107115795 - ISBN-13: 978-1107115798 ...

Designing engineering components that make optimal use of materials requires consideration of the nonlinear static and dynamic characteristics associated with both manufacturing and working environments. The modeling of these characteristics can only be done through numerical formulation and simulation, which requires an understanding of both the theoretical background and associated computer solution techniques. By presenting both the nonlinear solid mechanics and the associated finite element techniques together, the authors provide, in the first of two books in this series, a complete, clear, and unified treatment of the static aspects of nonlinear solid mechanics. Alongside a range of worked examples and exercises are user instructions, program descriptions, and examples for the FLagSHyP MATLAB computer implementation, for which the source code is available online. While this book is designed to complement postgraduate courses, it is also relevant to those in industry requiring an appreciation of the way their computer simulation programs work.

 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.

For courses in introductory combined Statics and Mechanics of Materials courses found in ME, CE, AE, and Engineering Mechanics departments: Statics and Mechanics of Materials represents a combined abridged version of two of the author’s books, namely Engineering Mechanics: Statics, Fourteenth Edition and Mechanics of Materials, Tenth Edition. It provides a clear and thorough presentation of both the theory and application of the important fundamental topics of these subjects, that are often used in many engineering disciplines. The development emphasizes the importance of satisfying equilibrium, compatibility of deformation, and material behavior requirements. The hallmark of the book, however, remains the same as the author’s unabridged versions, and that is, strong emphasis is placed on drawing a free-body diagram, and the importance of selecting an appropriate coordinate system and an associated sign convention whenever the equations of mechanics are applied. Throughout the book, many analysis and design applications are presented, which involve mechanical elements and structural members often encountered in engineering practice.

Ferdinand Beer, E. Russell Johnston Jr., David Mazurek, Phillip Cornwell, Brian Self ... 1472 pages - Publisher: McGraw-Hill Education; 11th edition (February, 2015) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0073398241 - ISBN-13: 978-0073398242 ... 

A primary objective in a first course in mechanics is to help develop a student's ability first to analyze problems in a simple and logical manner, and then to apply basic principles to their solutions. A strong conceptual understanding of these basic mechanics principles is essential for successfully solving mechanics problems. This edition of Vector Mechanics for Engineers will help instructors achieve these goals. Continuing in the spirit of its successful previous editions, this edition provides conceptually accurate and thorough coverage together with a significant refreshment of the exercise sets and online delivery of homework problems to your students. This edition has undergone a complete rewrite to modernize and streamline the language through the text. Over 650 of the homework problems in the text are new or revised. One of the characteristics of the approach used in this book is that mechanics of particles is clearly separated from the mechanics of rigid bodies. This approach makes it possible to consider simple practical applications at an early stage and to postpone the introduction of the more difficult concepts. McGraw-Hill Education's Connect, is also available as an optional, add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student's work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a "multi-step solution" which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty.
