Now in its second English edition, Mechanics of Materials is the second volume of a three-volume textbook series on Engineering Mechanics. It was written with the intention of presenting to engineering students the basic concepts and principles of mechanics in as simple a form as the subject allows. A second objective of this book is to guide the students in their efforts to solve problems in mechanics in a systematic manner. The simple approach to the theory of mechanics allows for the different educational backgrounds of the students. Another aim of this book is to provide engineering students as well as practising engineers with a basis to help them bridge the gaps between undergraduate studies, advanced courses on mechanics and practical engineering problems. The book contains numerous examples and their solutions. Emphasis is placed upon student participation in solving the problems. The new edition is fully revised and supplemented by additional examples. The contents of the book correspond to the topics normally covered in courses on basic engineering mechanics at universities and colleges. Volume 1 deals with Statics and Volume 3 treats Particle Dynamics and Rigid Body Dynamics. Separate books with exercises and well elaborated solutions are available.

Here is a systematic and clearly laid out text on structural and continuum mechanics. Containing hundreds of diagrams, drawings and examples, this work dovetails theoretical developments and figures in a beautifully conceived treatment of the subject. The book also covers stresses and strains in simple elements subjected to extension, bending, shear and torsion. For elementary structures, simple load displacements are obtained using both classical mathematics descriptions and engineering methods like Williot diagrams.

Separation of the elements of classical mechanics into kinematics and dynamics is an uncommon tutorial approach, but the author uses it to advantage in this two-volume set. Students gain a mastery of kinematics first – a solid foundation for the later study of the free-body formulation of the dynamics problem. A key objective of these volumes, which present a vector treatment of the principles of mechanics, is to help the student gain confidence in transforming problems into appropriate mathematical language that may be manipulated to give useful physical conclusions or specific numerical results. In the first volume, the elements of vector calculus and the matrix algebra are reviewed in appendices. Unusual mathematical topics, such as singularity functions and some elements of tensor analysis, are introduced within the text. A logical and systematic building of well-known kinematic concepts, theorems, and formulas, illustrated by examples and problems, is presented offering insights into both fundamentals and applications. Problems amplify the material and pave the way for advanced study of topics in mechanical design analysis, advanced kinematics of mechanisms and analytical dynamics, mechanical vibrations and controls, and continuum mechanics of solids and fluids. Volume I of Principles of Engineering Mechanics provides the basis for a stimulating and rewarding one-term course for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students specializing in mechanics, engineering science, engineering physics, applied mathematics, materials science, and mechanical, aerospace, and civil engineering. Professionals working in related fields of applied mathematics will find it a practical review and a quick reference for questions involving basic kinematics.

Known for its accuracy, clarity, and dependability, Meriam and Kraige's Engineering Mechanics: Statics Seventh Edition has provided a solid foundation of mechanics principles for more than 60 years. Now in its seventh edition, the text continues to help students develop their problem-solving skills with an extensive variety of engaging problems related to engineering design. More than 50% of the homework problems are new, and there are also a number of new sample problems. To help students build necessary visualization and problem-solving skills, the text strongly emphasizes drawing free-body diagrams-the most important skill needed to solve mechanics problems.

Full coverage of electronics, MEMS, and instrumentation andcontrol in mechanical engineering This second volume of Mechanical Engineers' Handbookcovers electronics, MEMS, and instrumentation and control, givingyou accessible and in-depth access to the topics you'll encounterin the discipline: computer-aided design, product design formanufacturing and assembly, design optimization, total qualitymanagement in mechanical system design, reliability in themechanical design process for sustainability, life-cycle design,design for remanufacturing processes, signal processing, dataacquisition and display systems, and much more. The book provides a quick guide to specialized areas you mayencounter in your work, giving you access to the basics of each andpointing you toward trusted resources for further reading, ifneeded. The accessible information inside offers discussions,examples, and analyses of the topics covered, rather than thestraight data, formulas, and calculations you'll find in otherhandbooks. Presents the most comprehensive coverage of the entirediscipline of Mechanical Engineering anywhere in four interrelatedbooks Offers the option of being purchased as a four-book set or assingle books Comes in a subscription format through the Wiley Online Libraryand in electronic and custom formats Engineers at all levels will find Mechanical Engineers'Handbook, Volume 2 an excellent resource they can turn to forthe basics of electronics, MEMS, and instrumentation andcontrol.

This book has been written for the introductory course of fluid mechanics for students at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. It provides the fundamental knowledge allowing students in engineering and natural sciences to enter fluid mechanics and its applications in various fields where fluid flows need to be dealt with. Volume 2 of this book contains ten chapters to help build the basic understanding of the subject matter. It adequately addresses the more complex and advanced issues on fluid mechanics in simplest of manners. The book covers laminar flow (viscous flow), turbulent flow, boundary layer theory, flow through pipe, pipe flow measurement, orifices and mouthpieces, flow past submerged bodies, flow through open channels, notches and weirs, and compressible flows. The concepts are supported by numerous solved examples and multiple-choice questions to aid self-learning in students. The book also contains illustrated diagrams for better understanding of the concepts. The book is extremely useful for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of engineering and natural sciences.

The latest edition of Engineering Mechanics-Dynamics continues to provide the same high quality material seen in previous editions. It provides extensively rewritten, updated prose for content clarity, superb new problems in new application areas, outstanding instruction on drawing free body diagrams, and new electronic supplements to assist learning and instruction.
