Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Dynamics / Edition 9

Overview

Continuing in the spirit of its successful previous editions, the tenth edition of Beer, Johnston, Mazurek, and Cornwell's Vector Mechanics for Engineers provides conceptually accurate and thorough coverage together with a significant refreshment of the exercise sets and online delivery of homework problems to your students. Nearly forty percent of the problems in the text are changed from the previous edition.

The Beer/Johnston textbooks introduced significant pedagogical innovations into engineering mechanics teaching. The consistent, accurate problem-solving methodology gives your students the best opportunity to learn statics and dynamics. At the same time, the careful presentation of content, unmatched levels of accuracy, and attention to detail have made these texts the standard for excellence.

Ferdinand P. Beer. Nacido en Francia y estudió en Francia y Suiza, Ferd recibió un MS grado de la Sorbona y un Sc.D. licenciado en mecánica teórica de la Universidad de Ginebra. Él vino a los Estados Unidos después de servir en el ejército francés durante la primera parte de la Segunda Guerra Mundial y enseñó durante cuatro años en la universidad de Williams en el programa de artes mixtas y de ingeniería Williams-MIT. Después de su servicio en el Williams College, Ferd unió a la facultad de la Universidad de Lehigh, donde enseñó durante treinta y siete años. Ocupó diversos cargos, entre ellos la Universidad de profesor distinguido y director del Departamento de Ingeniería Mecánica y Mecánica, y en 1995 fue galardonado con Ferd honorario de Doctor en Ingeniería por la Universidad de Lehigh grado.

Phillip J. Cornwell.
Phil holds a B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from Texas Tech University and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical and aerospace engineering from Princeton University. He is currently a professor of mechanical engineering at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology where he has taught since 1989. His present interests include structural dynamics, structural health monitoring, and undergraduate engineering education. Phil spends his summers working at Los Alamos National Laboratory where he is a mentor in the
Los Alamos Dynamics Summer School and he does research in the area of structural health monitoring. Phil received an SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award in
1992, the Dean’s Outstanding Scholar Award at Rose-Hulman in 2000, and the Board of Trustees Outstanding Scholar Award at Rose-Hulman in 2001.

Brian obtained his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Engineering Mechanics from Virginia Tech, and his Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of Utah. He worked in the Air Force Research Laboratories before teaching at the U.S. Air Force Academy for seven years. Brian has taught in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo since 2006. He has been very active in the American Society of Engineering Education, serving on its Board from 2008-2010. With a team of five, Brian developed the Dynamics Concept Inventory to help assess student conceptual understanding. His professional interests include educational research, aviation physiology, and biomechanics.

Nacido en Filadelfia, Russ tiene un B.S. licenciatura en ingeniería civil de la Universidad de Delaware y un Sc.D. título en el campo de la ingeniería estructural en el Instituto de Tecnología de Massachusetts (MIT).
