Focusing on the fundamentals of material statics and strength, Applied Statics and Strength of Materials, Fifth Edition presents a non-Calculus-based, elementary, analytical, and practical approach, with rigorous, comprehensive example problems that follow the explanation of theory and very complete homework problems that allow traineesto practice the material. The goal of thebook is to providereaders with the necessary mechanics background for more advanced and specialized areas of study in the many fields of engineering technology - for example, civil, mechanical, construction, architectural, industrial, and manufacturing.
