Overview

Hallmark Features: Problem Solving Uses a "Strategy-Solution-Discussion" problem-solving methodology that explains how to approach problems, solve them, and critically judge the results Visualization Stresses the importance of visual analysis, especially the use of free-body diagrams Develops figures gradually and employs "ghosting" techniques to clarify and emphasize concepts-- emulating the way an instructor teaches Applications Places engineering mechanics within the context of engineering practice by including applications from many fields of engineering Introduces design principles with the "Application to Engineering" feature using concepts developed in preceding sections of the chapter New Features: Organization Includes section on distributed forces on beams earlier in the text in Chapter 7 Presents Friction chapter earlier-- now Chapter 9 Reorganizes the material in Chapter 10, now called Internal Forces and Moments Content Strengthens already superior coverage of FBDs Presents a revised discussion of loads in Chapter 6 Provides new examples throughout the text including the popular feature," Application to Engineering" Increases the number of homework problems by 15% Other Provides a thoroughly revised solution manual written by Wallace Fowler.
