Details: Product Description KEY BENEFIT: Statics and Mechanics of Materials represents a combined abridged version of two of the author’s books, namely Engineering Mechanics: Statics, Fourteenth Edition and Mechanics of Materials, Tenth Edition. It provides a clear and thorough presentation of both the theory and application of the important fundamental topics of these subjects, that are often used in many engineering disciplines. The development emphasizes the importance of satisfying equilibrium, compatibility of deformation, and material behavior requirements. The hallmark of the book, however, remains the same as the author’s unabridged versions, and that is, strong emphasis is placed on drawing a free-body diagram, and the importance of selecting an appropriate coordinate system and an associated sign convention whenever the equations of mechanics are applied. Throughout the book, many analysis and design applications are presented, which involve mechanical elements and structural members often encountered in engineering practice.   KEY TOPICS:  General Principles;  Mechanics;  Fundamental Concepts;  The International System of Units;  Numerical Calculations;  General Procedure for Analysis;  Force Vectors;  Scalars and Vectors;  Vector Operations;  Vector Addition of Forces;  Addition of a System of Coplanar Forces;  Cartesian Vectors;  Addition of Cartesian Vectors;  Position Vectors;  Force Vector Directed Along a Line;  Dot Product;  Force System Resultants;  Moment of a Force–Scalar Formulation;  Cross Product;  Moment of a Force–Vector Formulation;  Principle of Moments;  Moment of a Force about a Specified Axis;  Moment of a Couple;  Simplification of a Force and Couple System;  Further Simplification of a Force and Couple System;  Reduction of a Simple Distributed Loading;  Equilibrium of a Rigid Body;  Conditions for Rigid-Body Equilibrium;  Free-Body Diagrams;  Equations of Equilibrium;  Two- and Three-Force Members;  Free-Body Diagrams;  Equations of Equilibrium;  Characteristics of Dry Friction;  Problems Involving Dry Friction;  Structural Analysis;  Simple Trusses;  The Method of Joints;  Zero-Force Members;  The Method of Sections;  Frames and Machines;  Center of Gravity, Centroid, and Moment of Inertia;  Center of Gravity and the Centroid of a Body;  Composite Bodies;  Moments of Inertia for Areas;  Parallel-Axis Theorem for an Area;  Moments of Inertia for Composite Areas;  Stress and Strain;  Introduction;  Internal Resultant Loadings;  Stress;  Average Normal Stress in an Axially Loaded Bar;  Average Shear Stress;  Allowable Stress Design;  Deformation;  Strain;  Mechanical Properties of Materials;  The Tension and Compression Test;  The Stress―Strain Diagram;  Stress―Strain Behavior of Ductile and Brittle Materials;  Strain Energy;  Poisson’s Ratio;  The Shear Stress―Strain Diagram;  Axial Load;  Saint-Venant’s Principle;  Elastic Deformation of an Axially Loaded Member;  Principle of Superposition;  Statically Indeterminate Axially Loaded Members;  The Force Method of Analysis for Axially Loaded Members;  Thermal Stress;   Torsion;  Torsional Deformation of a Circular Shaft;  The Torsion Formula;  Power Transmission;  Angle of Twist;  Statically Indeterminate Torque-Loaded Members;  Bending;  Shear and Moment Diagrams;  Graphical Method for Constructing; Shear and Moment Diagrams;  Bending Deformation of a Straight Member;  The Flexure Formula;  Unsymmetric Bending;  Transverse Shear;  Shear in Straight Members;  The Shear Formula;  Shear Flow in Built-Up Members;  Combined Loadings;  Thin-Walled Pressure Vessels;  State of Stress Caused by Combined Loadings;  Stress and Strain Transformation;  Plane-Stress Transformation;  General Equations of Plane-Stress Transformation;  Principal Stresses and Maximum In-Plane Shear Stress;  Mohr’s Circle–Plane Stress;  Absolute Maximum Shear Stress;  Plane Strain;  General Equations of Plane-Strain Transformation; * Mohr’s Circle–Plane Strain; * Absolute Maximum Shear
