Statics and Strength of Materials, Second Edition 0-02-803067-2 © 1997 560 pages

Product Description
The new edition of this easy-to-understand text, designed for a non-calculus course in statics and strength of materials, requires only a working knowledge of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. In addition to expanded coverage and better organization of information, it addresses new topics such as accuracy and precision, solution of simultaneous equations, rolling resistance, mechanical properties of materials, composite beams, reinforced concrete beans, plastic analysis of beams, design of shear connectors, and more.

Features:
• Practical, logical organization of the text seamlessly incorporates new material.
• Carefully organized chapter topics and subtopics are boldfaced for better readability.
• New chapter on mechanical properties of materials and an expanded chapter on the design of beams for strength.
• Students learn to apply basic principles to a variety of problems.
• Homework problems of various levels of difficult furnished at the end of each chapter, beginning with relatively simple problems to help students gain confidence.
• Review of trigonometry and algebra included in Chapter 1.
• Computer program assignments follow regular homework problems in most chapters, requiring students to write computer programs to solve some general problems in the chapter topics. (Any appropriate computer language may be used.)
