| About The Book Mechanical Sciences
Primarily intended for undergraduate students of all engineering disciplines, this comprehensive and up-to-date text strives to meet the long-felt need for a single book that covers Engineering Mechanics as well as Strength of Materials.
The text is organized in three parts. Parts I and II provide an easily understandable presentation of the theory along with systematic application of the principles of statics and dynamics to engineering problems. Part III covers the basic topics in strength of materials in a clear, simple, direct fashion that uses an abundance of examples to clarify principles.
• Clear and simple diagrams to explain concepts
• More than 200 graded solved examples to foster understanding of theory
• More than 125 exercises with solution hints and answers to develop students’ problem solving skills
• Multiple-choice questions to help students assess their learning.
