A proven approach to conceptual understanding and problem-solving skills
Engineering Mechanics: Statics excels in providing a clear and thorough presentation of the theory and application of engineering mechanics. Engineering Mechanics empowers students to succeed by drawing upon Professor Hibbeler’s decades of everyday classroom experience and his knowledge of how students learn. The text is shaped by the comments and suggestions of hundreds of reviewers in the teaching profession, as well as many of the author’s students.
A variety of new video types are available for the 15th Edition. The author carefully developed each video to expertly demonstrate how to solve problems, model the best way to reach a solution, and give students extra opportunities to practice honing their problem-solving skills; he also summarizes key concepts discussed in the text, supported by additional figures, animations, and photos. The text provides a large variety of problems, 30% of which are new, with varying levels of difficulty that cover a broad range of engineering disciplines and stress practical, realistic situations. An expanded Answer Section in the back of the book now includes additional information related to the solution of select Fundamental and Review Problems in order to offer students even more guidance in solving the problems.
