Analysis and Design of Systems in Equilibrium
Statics: Analysis and Design of Systems in Equilibrium
Sheri D. Sheppard of Stanford University, and Benson H. Tongue,
University of California, Berkeley, offers a student-focused
approach to Statics. With a strong emphasis on drawing free body
diagrams, use of a structured problem-solving methodology,
inclusion of real-world case studies, and robust pedagogy coupled
with a truly engaging writing style, reviewers alike have praised
this new Statics text. Additionally, this first edition has
benefited from a comprehensive and thorough accuracy check by 15
experienced professors, and has been reviewed by more than 200
Statics and Dynamics professors.
The text seeks to improve students? abilities to map their
understanding to more realistic engineering situations, enabling
them to more effectively break down complex problems into
manageable parts, and thus, become more effective engineering
students and ultimately, professional engineers.
The authors do not compromise on rigor. Instead this
series demonstrates the required rigor in the larger context of
engineering work, decision making, problem solving, and
understanding and impacting the man-made world.
